answer 1
i think so. my skin is very acne prone, and i can't say this has caused any breakouts.
answered 3 years, 5 months ago
answer 2
This product does not cause me breakouts if I use it AM. An Origins SA suggested that I could use this PM as well, but it makes me break out if I use this moisturizer before bed. My skin breakouts very easily-almost daily-and it becomes dry plus sensitive due to acne products.
answered 4 years, 3 months ago
answer 3
its a good moisturizer but it can be oily so if you have acne prone skin it may not be good due to producing more oils on your skin which may cause more breakouts.

Not sensitive skin.

mineral vs chemical sunscreen
What type of sunscreen is found in this product? I am allergic to the chemical types. Would this sunscreen be okay for me? Thanks!!

answer 1
Unfortunately, as of Feb 2013, Origins ONLY makes chemical sunscreen. I've got a similar sensitivity to chemical sunscreens. Some physical alternatives include SPF products by Josie Maran, Lavanila, or Juice Beauty; the Bare Minerals Advanced Protection SPF 20 Moisturizer; and nearly all 'BB' products on the market.

I love Origins a 'natural' company, I wish that they'd at least offer a physical block as an option!! Also, I think that all companies should do consumers the courtesy of providing their active sunscreen ingredients. Ridiculous.

Dark Circles?
It may seem obvious not to use this near your eye area, but I read in a magazine that this would help with brightening dark circles... Im not sure though.

answer 1
If its hereditary dark circles you can't do much about it. You can try it but be very careful about it getting it in your eyes. It may be a bit too heavy to apply eye makeup over.

answer 2
No it doesn't help much. I've used an eye cream that doesn't address dark circles (Lancôme Progrès) while I used this moisturizer. My dark circles were there as usual.
answered 4 years, 3 months ago
answer 3
I think it would burn my eyes. I do sneak it into the outside area of my eye where crow's feet are. I can't help but think it will help my wrinkles there. It breaks up dark spots as in sun damage/liver spot type dark areas. I would NOT think this will work for under eye circles!

day and night creams when using retinol rx cream
I am in my early fifties and have sensitive skin. (my skin has begun to look dull and has lost its glow & i STILL get chin breakouts with certain products)I have a prescription for Retin A that I have not tried yet & would like to also change my moisturiser (have been using clinique DDM & laroche posay moisturiser with SPF) I would like to try the high potency origins night cream and the brighter by nature SPF 35 originis day moisturizer but wonder if there would be any reaction if using these products in conjunction.?

You should talk to your dermatologist regarding potential reactions you might be having to all these Retinoids you're putting on your skin in combination to other skin care products. Not all skin care products can be mixed and mingled as you please. I've heard it suggested that if you have sensitive skin, you might consider applying your moisturizer BEFORE your Retinoid but definitely consult with your dermatologist first.

answer 2
I don't know anything about Clinique creams, but I think this Origins Brighter by Nature day cream would feel rather soothing to your skin while using Retin-A. I used Retin-A for years trying to clear up acne so I remember how drying and uncomfortable it can make your skin feel, especially when first starting to use it. Use the Retin-A at night as your dermatologist most likely recommended and the Day cream - of course in the AM. Good luck!

What are the sunscreen ingredients in this product?
It looks like I can only use products that use zinc and titianium for the sunscreens--get allergic reactions with others.
