My skin craves moisture. All day, every day. No matter how many masks, treatments or moisturizers I slather on, my skin doesn't seem to get enough hydration. My issue with a good moisturizer is that some can leave you looking like you bathed in it. I mean, who wants to look like a greasy mess? It certainly does not make it easy on the makeup routine either, that is for sure. When I received Origins new Original Skin Matte Moisturizer, I was definitely intrigued. A matte moisturizer? I needed to try what was billed as a pink water cream to find out what this was all about.

When I opened the jar, I was presented with what looked like a gel. And it was bouncy. What I soon learned was that this bouncy gel cream quickly hydrated my skin in a way that seemed unbelievable.

Original Skin Matte Moisturizer disappears into my skin immediately but leaves it so smooth. My skin feels instantly quenched — yet it doesn’t look all dewy or too moist like you’d expect from something so hydrating. What it does do is leave it perfectly soft, smooth and primed for makeup application. Ahh, I got it! Matte moisturizer. And I love it.
