Origins: A Perfect World Antioxidant Moisturizer with White Tea Review

On Earth Day, Sephora gave out a tube of Origins A Perfect World Antioxidant Moisturizer with White Tea. I was lucky enough to get one during the morning (see haul here) and I have used it for a while to test it out so it’s time to review on it!

Origins

What it is:
An antiaging moisturizer with the protective powers of white tea.

What it is formulated to do:
Research at several major universities has proven that white tea is among the most potent antioxidants, anti-agers, anti-stress, anti-smoke, and anti-pollution antidotes. Now its protective powers are energized and optimized in a moisturizer that surrounds skin in a virtually impenetrable protective bubble. This barrier intercepts damage before it causes lines, wrinkles, dark spots, and loss of firmness.

What it is formulated WITHOUT:
- Parabens
- Sulfates
- Synthetic Fragrances
- Synthetic Dyes
- Petrochemicals
- Phthalates
- GMOs
- Triclosan

What else you need to know:
This product contains several powerful natural ingredients. Ferment of sugarcane acts like a mini-sparkplug to start skin’s ability to

Original Origins Antioxidant Moisturizer with White Tea

neutralize free radicals before they deface skin. Murumuru butter maximizes skin’s moisture barrier. Rose fruit oil hydrates. Centella Asiatica firms. Vitamin C brightens and helps even out skintone. And aromatic orange, bergamot, and spearmint fortify the feel-good factor. Keep your skin in A Perfect World™ 24/7

———————————————–

This is a  full sized product, and it costs $49CAD online. It comes in a tube bottle- where the tube is made with 30% post consumer plastics and the cap is made with 100% recycled plastics.(The original container is a jar.)

When I first opened the it and squeezed out the product, the first thing I notice is the smell. It’s not the most pleasant, delightful smell. It’s pungent in a sickly, sweet way which can throw some people off. Despite the smell, I proceeded to try out the product anyway. I tried it before going to bed, and I woke up in the morning hoping my skin was still okay. My skin was actually fairly soft. It absorbed the product easily and moisturized well.

It’s a bit thick, so it’s a bit sticky when I first dab it on, and it’s pungent- so I prefer using it as a night cream; although you can use it night and day.

This is my first Origins product, and although the formula works well with my skin, the smell is a bit of a put off for me. I am interested to try their other products though, since it seems to use lots of natural products!

Anyone else have experience with Origins?

    I still haven’t tried mine yet, because I don’t even know where it is! Probably amongst all the things I have yet to unpack…

      Thanks! Have you tried other products before?

        I have tried the ginger body souffle which was really lovely and smelled really nice. Also the charcoal mask which was good, but not better than cheaper masks I had tried so I could never justify the price. I also tried the papaya cleanser (i think it had pineapple scent too?) and it was really drying to my skin but smelled lovely. I also tried the brightening moisturizer and that was really nice, but not enough results so I stopped using it. These products are a few yrs old though and I would love to try their newer stuff! Post reviews if you can; I’d love to read them!

          Wow that’s a lot! I want to try the charcoal mask because I have horrible pores- but yeah the price is hard to justify :( The ginger body souffle sounds heavenly!! I’ll have to start extending my range of skincare products!

            yeah this was a couple yrs. ago. The charcoal mask is okay but kind of drying. I think it works as good as the Queen Bee masks you can get at Sallys for less money tbh. Yeah I really loved the ginger body souffle!

    I have never tried any origins products! It’s too bad that it has a strong scent! :( At least it was a free product! :)
