When my last moisturiser hit the beauty dust, I knew for sure it wouldn’t be a re-purchase. I wanted to try something new and had a certain new release from Origins in mind. Come payday I quickly made my way to Boots to pick up the latest baby of the Origins moisturiser world: The GinZing Energy Boosting Moisturiser. I’ve used it every day since and have whittled my love for it down to three factors:
Reason #1: Perfect For Summer
More of a gel moisturiser than any i’ve used before, this product sinks into the skin quickly, but keeps my face hydrated all day long. It’s also incredibly light, meaning I don’t finish my base make up and have a very sticky/greasy/wet feeling on my face. I might currently be ending the day looking that way but I’m sure as hell not looking to start out like it!
Reason #2: Refreshing and Brightening
If the gorgeous orange scent alone doesn’t make it amazingly refreshing (seriously, it’s like angels are having a party on my skin), the gel texture will. It seems to feel even cooler than most of the other day moisturisers i’ve used which really helps to calm and brighten my skin. Perfect for the morning. If you’re hung over I’d also recommend putting this in he fridge before you go to bed (am I the only one that gets face ache when i’ve had too much to drink?). Apply the morning after the night before and it will feel like heaven on your face.
Reason #3: £££
It’s hard to believe how affordable the GinZing moisturiser is considering it belongs to the Origins family. For the quality of the moisturiser it’s worth every penny at a reasonable £23. This makes it a very good product to start of with if you’re testing the Origins waters for the first time. It also means I wont feel guilty about re-purchasing it once i’ve used every single scrap. Because I plan to. However this might take me a while because a normal/combination oily skinned girl like myself will need around a 20p sized blob each morning for the entire face.
So to re-cap? Light, hydrating, refreshing, brightening, affordable, perfect for summer and smells like there’s a party on your face…
