"Put dullness to rest. This night cream is fortified with a system of time-released resurfacers, minerals, moisture-rich replenishers, and vitamins C, E, and H to refresh and support naturally radiant morning skin. Relaxing aromas lull you to sleep and dry, dead layers slough away leaving skin looking bright and feeling refreshed."
I have had this cream for a while, the big jar is actually empty, which means I finished it all. Then I got a smaller size and decided to review it for you guys, because I had the actual cream to take pictures of and all that stuff. For a long time, I wanted to try this out and I got lucky to get to try it out with using my Sephora beauty points. It came with a couple different Origins products and this was one of them.
This Renewal Cream comes in a dark brown glass jar. It's a rich cream, feels thick and creamy yet smooth and very easy to spread out on the skin. It has a very refreshing, orange citrus scent. I absolutely love the smell. A little bit of this goes a long way and it can cover my whole face and neck. It's very moisturizing but didn't leave my skin feeling oily at all. I think dry skins like me will like this, but I'm not sure about oily skins, because this can feel a little too thick for them but it all just depends on the person. This didn't irritate my skin or anything at first. It was all great and my skin loved it. I think it was not even one third of the product left, that it started to break me out. I don't think it was because of this particular cream though. I say that because my skin became super sensitive and a lot of face moisturizers are maybe too much for it. Too much vitamins and stuff in the face moisturizers seem to break me out. It's weird, I know but anyways. I suggest getting a sample of this before actually purchasing the full size. I do that now, because I know how sensitive my skin is and also, I hate buying something and having to go though the trouble of returning it.
Overall, my initial reaction to this was really good. My skin got a lot of moisture from this as well as felts brightened because of the Vitamin C in it. The smell is amazing and it's very refreshing but not energizing to not be appropriate to use at night. I really liked it. Now I have the smaller size but since I have very sensitive skin now, I can't use this. I started using this on my upper arms, because there's not much left of it to give it away to someone else to use, and one thing I noticed is that, I have some acne scars on my upper arms that started to lighten when I used this on them. So it's not going to waste, but I wont be purchasing this again because of my sensitive skin.
