How are you doing? My life has settled a bit as my son has started his school. All the mother’s would understand how great it feels, I get a lot more time for everything else like pampering myself or doing groceries. and household chores. Anyhow I am enjoying my free time. I am following my skincare routine religiously as well and I added this moisturizer to my routine a month back. I tried and smelled this product in the store and loved it and it is for combination dry skin type so it works perfectly for me. Read on to see how feel about this.

My Experience with Origins A Perfect World SPF 25 :
I apply this in the morning after cleansing and toning all over my face and neck. It has a pink/peachy tint. It smells great. This moisturizer is very light and the consistency is not very thick. I prefer the morning moisturizers to be light. I do not enjoy SPF in moisturizers as they tend to be really thick and cast a white layer on the face that I hate, really hate. However, this one does not. No white cast or heaviness on the face. It gets absorbed within seconds. Though it has low SPF but I do not like very high SPF. Higher SPF breaks me out. So, I told you I have a complicated skin type.
I do not apply makeup everyday so it works for me but for someone who applies makeup every day and need a good base, I do not think this would work as a great base, you would need more hydration. That is the only concern I have with this moisturizer.
Pros of Origins A Perfect World SPF 25 :
• Would not work as a makeup base.
• Has SPF ( some is better than nothing)
• Nice fragrance
Cons of Origins A Perfect World SPF 25 :
• Pricey, it works for me so I do not mind. However, for other if a less expensive product is doing well don’t bother about his one.
• Low SPF
• Not very hydrating
Do I recommend Origins A Perfect World SPF 25 ?
Yes for people who need a nice moisturizer with SPF that is light. It would not work well with very dry skin types. Again that also depends where you live and the weather conditions do. So, for some it could be a hit and for some it would be a miss!
