Origins GinZing Energy-Boosting Moisturiser Review

Thursday, 25 July 2013

Okay, so this moisturiser has been everywhere lately - and there's a reason why. A little while ago Origins, a skincare brand I absolutely adore, introduced a new moisturiser titled 'GinZing'; an energy-boosting moisturiser full of coffee beans and ginseng goodness to wake up skin and get it feeling energised. Now, I don't know about you, but my skin is always in need of a good wake up-call, and this product sounded like the perfect remedy for my tired, lack-lustre skin. 

First things first; this stuff smells incredible. Seriously, the smell alone is enough to get me waking up - it's a gorgeous mix of zestiness and zing, which is super refreshing and makes it a delight to apply. It smooths on beautifully, is really light on the skin and sinks in like a dream, leaving my skin feeling seriously soft and smooth. I love this moisturiser as it's oil-free, doesn't contain SPF so can be used as a night cream as well as a day, and makes my skin feel amazing. I was a little dubious that it wouldn't keep my oil in control throughout the day, but it does an excellent job, leaving my skin nice and matte. 

I definitely notice a difference in my skin when using this; it certainly brightens up my skin whilst keeping it hydrated, but not so much that it gets oily. I really would it and would definitely re-purchase if I had the money! It's at the cheaper end of Origins' moisturiser range too as it's only £23, which is pretty good for a moisturiser that achieves everything it claims to!
