Origins Smarty Plants CC SPF 20 Skin Complexion Corrector

Origins Smarty Plants CC SPF 20 Skin Complexion Corrector in the shade light to medium ($44 from

This is a product I picked up at Sephora recently after reading about it on several beauty blogs.  I'm not very familiar with Origins and this is my first purchase from the brand.

I was looking for a light moisturizing base with high SPF that I could wear on holiday in Mexico to have a little bit of coverage while protecting my skin.  I hate wearing pure sunscreen on my face - it feels so heavy and sticky and I imagine it clogging my pores.  I also don't like the white mask it gives me.

I've tried this on a few weekends since I purchased it and wasn't wowed.  I find it leans a little orange for me and gives little to no coverage at all.  It feels quite nice and has a lovely orange scent though.  My BFF bought it as well and suggested two layers - which did help somewhat.

So I suppose it might work for my vacation in the sun when I'll be by the pool the whole time - but I probably won't use it for anything else.
