I bought the Origins GinZing Energy-Boosting Gel Moisturiser in the Black Friday sales last year. So I’ve had a bit of time to consider my thoughts on it.
The Origins Gel Moisturiser comes in a little glass orange pot. It costs £25.00 for 50ml of product. Although the packaging is nice and screams luxury, I don’t think it’s very convenient. I apply moisturiser after showering and the fact it’s glass always makes me anxious I’d drop it. Also it’s not very travel-friendly for the same reason. Lastly, I much prefer tubes I can squeeze, as I save dipping my fingers repeatedly into the pot.
The Origins GinZing Energy-Boosting Gel Moisturiser is a lightweight oil-free cream with a citrussy scent. It’s not unpleasant and it absorbs into the skin quickly so the scent doesn’t linger. It’s an oil-free and silicone-free formulation. According to the Origins website; “Energy-boosting caffeine from Coffee & Ginseng help refresh & revitalize, while Hydra-Hug™ Technology helps lock in & maintain lasting, healthy moisture. Essential oil blend of Grapefruit, Lemon & Spearmint naturally invigorates the senses.”
Origins GinZing Oil-Free Energy Boosting Gel Moisturiser – My Thoughts
The Origins GinZing Oil-Free Energy Boosting Gel Moisturiser contains coffee and panax ginseng, meant to revitalise the skin’s appearance. I notice when I first apply the moisturiser, my skin goes ever so slightly red which could be it reacting to the ingredients. After it has calmed down my skin does look a bit brighter. For this reason though, I wouldn’t really apply it in the morning in a rush as I’d be ever so red.
On the Origins website it claims that this moisturiser will provide 72-hours of hydration. I didn’t get that. I still need to apply moisturiser every day. However, it is winter and my skin does need that extra bit of hydration. I think those with oily skin may find that using this once a day or every other day will be enough. For those with drier skin types I’d probably say it’s a bit too lightweight and you might want to opt for something a bit more nourishing.
