Origins GinZing Energy-Boosting Moisturiser

Thursday, August 08, 2013

A little while back, Origins announced the release of a brand new daily moisturiser for summer. Sitting on the cheaper end of the Origins moisturiser spectrum at a slightly more affordable £23, the GinZing Energy-Boosting Moisturiser is a reformulated version of their best-selling eye cream of the same name, and has similarly big claims. Supposedly performing like an "energy drink" for your skin, this gel based cream contains panax ginseng and coffee beans which "jumpstart hydration levels" and help you on your way to a healthy, glowing complexion.

I've been using this moisturiser religiously for the past month or so, and it has left me impressed for a handful of reasons. First up is the scent. For me, the scent of a product is a part of the overall experience, and Origins are the masters of knowing how to make a product smell amazing. The GinZing moisturiser has a zesty, fresh orange scent which is an instant pick-me-up first thing in the morning. Secondly, the light, gel-like texture means that this moisturiser applies beautifully. It has a lovely cooling effect on the skin, sinks in quickly and gives the skin just the right amount of hydration without toppling into oily territory. Lastly, this moisturiser simply performs well. It's like a cool, refreshing drink for your skin - light, hydrating and energy boosting; and it's absolutely perfect on a hot day. It leaves skin feeling softened, brightened and smelling pretty damn amazing! And to top it all off, it's the lowest priced Origins moisturiser of the lot. Undoubtedly a very welcome addiction to the Origins family.

  10. I picked up a sample of this today and I can't wait to try it out after hearing all the hype around it. I think what drew me to it first when I saw it in stores before hearing about it was the scent. I can't get over how lovely it smells!
