Origins Gin Zing Energy Boosting Moisturiser, £23
Origins seems to be everywhere in the blogging world and I now definitely understand why. As my first purchase from the brand, I have not been disappointed. My skincare routine is incredibly simple. I have naturally good skin and so try to leave it alone as much as possible, but recently my skin has been looking a little “lack-lustre”. I’ve been in need of something which gives a healthy glow and this has been the answer.
If you’re looking for something to pump energy into your face then I would definitely recommend this product. It’s light weight and oil free with a gel texture which feels incredibly cooling when massaged into the skin. Backed by the science of skin boosting Panax Ginseng and Coffee Bean, it works to hydrate your skin and leave it feeling instantly plump and refreshed.
The first thing you notice about it is the zesty, zingy smell which is the perfect wake up call in the morning. It absorbs quickly so you don’t have to wait around for it to sink in before applying your make up – I allow it only a few minutes and it does the job. It is pricey but a pea size is all you need and so I can see this lasting me a decent amount of time.
I use it before going to bed and have noticed a real difference in my skin in the mornings. It looks so much brighter and more refreshed rather than sallow and dull. My skin also stays matte which makes it stand out from other moisturisers I’ve used where I have to powder my t-zone multiple times during the day.
Would you buy this? As a newbie to Origins, do you have any recommendations of other products?
