Rated 5 out of 5Â by harpier Favorite Daily Moisturizer
Priority #1: Plentiful moisturizing that won't clog my acne-prone pores or slick my naturally oily skin. SUCCESS! While I do use this moisturizer more liberally than other alternatives (including several other Origins products I've tried), probably because of its feather-light texture, it leaves my face feeling baby soft and not the least greasy.
Priority #2: Prevent the proliferation of the (very) fine lines that have recently started to show around my face. SUCCESS! Start Over has successfully smoothed and plumped nearly all of my fledgling collagen-loss lines. More importantly, its resupplying my skin and preventing new fine lines from forming. However, unlike other Origins moisturizing options, this one doesn't offer any SPF protection to prevent sun damage. (Not so much a problem for me, since my liquid foundation is SPF 20, but perhaps a concern for those who use non-protective or powder options.)
Priority #3: Skin texture and glow. SUCCESS! Soft, soft, soft. It's a light finish, but it leaves my skin looking and feeling like velvety porcelain. It doesn't provide the same lively pop as other skincare products, but it provides a beautifully clear surface to let make-up do its thing. And the slightly sweet Mimosa smell doesn't hurt either.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by mld19 Great for Oily Skin
I have sensitive, oily, acne prone skin and the moisturizer i used by another company was discontinued. In my quest for a replacement i have tried every over the counter and some department store varieties with no success. Most caused irritation, breakouts, and made my oily skin even worse. Last ditch effort I went to the local Origins store after reading about this moisurizer online. I have now been using it over a month and am absolutely pleased. I have had no reactions, no increase in irritation, AND it does not make my already oily skin oiler. I have noticed that my skin feels smoother and I have not had any breakouts that I would attribute to this product. In fact I would say that my skin is calming down a great deal since using this. It is so difficult to find a moisurizer that provides the right amount of moisure without aggravating my skin and causing more breakouts. To top it off I am in my late 30's and my skin is showing a few fine lines here and there - I never thought I could find a product that helped the signs of aging that also worked for all my other numerous skin issues. The scent is wonderful and absorbs instantly into my skin. If you have sensitive, oily, acne prone, aging skin give this product a try - you will not be disappointed

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Martha123456 Really Made A Difference!
I have tried a million things. This moisturizer has really improved my complexion. I am 42 and have combo skin and get wrinkles and break outs. Since using this (jar almost gone), I don't think I have broken out once. And, my skin is glowing - lines diminished. I have finally found the right moisturizer for me!!! Thank you!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Meremaid Simply THE BEST
I've been using this moisturizer since it was first introduced and I will never steer away from it. I've tried A Perfect World, Youthtopia and Plantscription moisturizers as well (out of curiosity), but Starting Over is absolutely the only product that is successfully moisturizes while being light enough so it doesn't clog my pores and allows my skin to breath. The other products - A Perfect World, Plantsciption, Youthtopia- I've tried (and believe me, I gave them a fair shot of a month-long trial) have always led to breakouts and they feel like they suffocate my skin day-to-day compared to Starting Over. So, if you're like me and want a balance between hydrating yet light, Starting Over is the PERFECT moisturizer.
