This is forever my favorite moisturizer. I take it with me everywhere! Thanks to an Ipsy bag over two years ago I have been hooked. I love that I can use it two times a day and I don't feel over moisturized. I haven't tried the original, but the light is perfect for my skin. I've also noticed continued growth in the company by it's packaging, which shows that I'm not the only believer. I was so excited when I was recognized as a consistent customer by a company credit. I will continue to show my loyalty to this company and this product as long as the product remains as perfect as it is now!
