For Normal Skin Types, can be used as night cream
I received a sample of the moisturizer in my April BirchBox. Although, I do not suffer from dry skin, I tried the moisturizer several times to see how it will work with someone with normal to combination skin. First, let’s start off with the fragrance. The moisturizer has a very light chic, rose smell, but it’s not overwhelming. The consistency is thick and creamy, but spreads easily. Absorbs quickly into the skin, I used it on my face, neck and hands but it did not give me a greasy finish.
I can see why it is for people with dry skin the moisturizer is rich and thick; however, for someone with normal to combination skin, I would suggest to use the moisturizer as a night cream. I also would not use it during the summer, but this would be a perfect winter moisturizer. If you have oily skin, this might be too heavy.
Overall, I did like the replenishing moisturizer; however, I would only use it for a night cream. The moisturizer made me interested in the company and I wanted to find out more about the merchandise the company sells. I went to the site to see if there were moisturizers that would suit my skin type and the company does sell moisturizers, along with other products for several different skin types. While the products are very pricey, I am seriously considering shelling out the money, definitely seems worth it.
I have used Origin’s Balance Diet Lightweight Moisture Lotion as my daytime moisturizer for over a year. I purchased the product looking for a light moisturizer for the summer months that would not feel heavy or look greasy under my liquid foundation. Moreover, my goal was to find a moisturizer that would not break my skin out nor feel heavy in the Arizona summer months and Balanced Diet does accomplish that.
The moisturizer is lightweight and absorbs quickly into my skin, it has a milky watery texture, and it has a very light minty scent, a perfect texture and weight to wear under foundation.
Although, I purchased the moisturizer to use during the summer months, I also use it during the winter months as well.

I'm glad I purchased
These shadows are great, very pigmented and buttery, and cheaper than most mid-end brands. Depending on the colors you purchase can be used everyday use. I purchase the 10 pallette freedom system. I use one of the shades (#366 – an orange) as a blush. #450 might be a dupe for MAC’s cranberry. One complaint, I wish they would put names on the colors instead of numbers.
Excellent neutral duo
Excellent neutral duo, these two colors are great for every day, the colors go on and stay on without creasing. The cordura duo is definitely one of my everyday favorites. I use the lighter shade on the lid, and the darker shade smudged on the lash line and as a crease color. I would definitely repurchase and recommend.
