Origins is a super popular company that has been around since the 1990s. It was actually started by the son of Estee Lauder and it’s known as one of the first major brands to focus more on natural products.
I saw really great results at first with this moisturizer, but over time, it really didn’t do much for my skin, which is why I had to give it 2 out of 5 stars overall.
As far as the highlights – this is a great product if you’re looking for a matte finish in your moisturizer. I thought it went on light and didn’t suffocate my skin.
But one of the major downsides was that it didn’t really moisturize my skin that much. I felt like over time, I didn’t see any change in my skin. Even after applying the product twice a day, my skin didn’t really feel any better, even weeks later!
The price is a little high at $36.00 for a 1.7 oz jar. If you are going to buy this, you could probably just throw out your makeup primer and use this instead.
Origins Original Skin Matte Moisturizer with Willowherb is a really light gel-like paste with a refreshing citrus smell.
It is pretty thin, so a little goes a long way! It didn’t take more than a dime-sized amount to cover my whole face.
Applying this matte moisturizer was super easy! It comes in a small jar with a screw-on lid, which was really easy and simple to use.
The thin consistency made it really quick and easy to evenly cover my face.
Drying time was interesting because Origins Original Skin Matte Moisturizer with Willowherb dried almost instantly.
It felt more like a makeup primer than a moisturizer, so it took seconds to seem like it totally soaked in.
The instructions on this one is to apply morning and night, but I really didn’t want to apply it at night.
It feels more like a light day cream to me, just because I don’t really want to cover my pores in dimethicone right before bed.
The smell of this moisturizer is refreshing and light!
It almost smells like grapefruit, which I loved! The smell also goes away pretty fast. So, if you’re sensitive to fragrance, this one might still be ok for you since the smell wears off quickly.
Right after applying it, I noticed how soft and smooth my skin looked. I loved the results right after it soaked in.
I thought it did a great job at blurring fine lines, but I noticed my skin didn’t feel very moisturized.
Longer Term Results
Longer term results really didn’t impress me at all. I didn’t see any improvement in my acne scars or fine lines.
My main concern was that my skin really didn’t feel moisturized even after several days. I really don’t think this would be enough for my skin in the winter when the dryness really sets in.
I also didn’t love putting this on at night, just because it was so lightweight and didn’t really feel very soothing before bed.
I also noticed a couple of whiteheads on my forehead and cheeks after a couple of weeks, which I really didn’t like. But overall, this might be a great product for people looking for something really light.
Origins Original Skin Matte Moisturizer with Willowherb contains tons of ingredients. Some of them are pretty unique!
Like it says in the title, one of the ingredients is Willowherb extract. Willowherb is used in skincare to help reduce inflammation. It’s known to even help skin heal and get rid of redness.
I liked the fact that this contains caffeine, but I have heard that your skin can build up a tolerance over time. Caffeine is an antioxidant and can help reduce redness by constricting blood vessels.
Of course, I had to mention the ingredient that makes it matte – dimethicone. Dimethicone is a synthetic ingredient that fills in pores and gives that great soft look. The downside is it can also clog pores and cause breakouts in large amounts, but most people don’t have too much of an issue with it.
A 1.7 oz jar is $36.00, which comes out to more than $20 an oz. I think it’s pretty expensive, even though it has almost 60 ingredients.
