I’ve jumped on the bandwagon and fallen for the hype for Origins GinZing moisturiser and do you know what, I think I quite like it!
I’ve been using Liz Earle normal/combination moisturiser as my morning cream for such a long time and as I neared the bottom of the tub, I was left in a predicament of repurchasing or trying something new. Origins have been a brand that I have been aware of for quite a long tome however I have never really tried any of their products, and this was simply down to one of their products that had mushrooms in it. I hate mushrooms and the thought just really put me off.
I’ve been seeing rave reviews everywhere for GinZing and I must admit that when I saw the line ‘Its like a shot of espresso for your skin’, I was more than curious. After all, all these early mornings and deep night flights have been sucking the life out of my skin.
So, GinZing came to live at my house, alongside a complimentary box of samples for an ‘at home facial’. The packaging of GinZing is quite basic. A bright orange tub with a white lid, inside a flimsy cardboard box. I know that packaging should mean nothing, but I do like the more luxurious looking products to be displayed in my bathroom. The lid of the GinZing also feel pretty flimsy so I’m going to try and keep this away from my work suitcase, as I’m not sure it would survive being bashed around.
The moisturiser itself however is lovely. It has a sharp citrus scent and smells energizing, if that’s possible. Its very light and although it takes a moment to soak in, it doesn’t leave any residue or film on your skin. I have normal/combination skin and have found that it gives a great base before I apply my make up and that any dry patches are eradicated. Even though it is so light, I’ve found that my skins hydration levels are superb and I look revitalised. It must be the coffee beans! All in all, I’m really pleased with GinZing.
The complimentary products I received were the Checks and Balance cleanser, Modern Friction exfoliator and Clear Improvement charcoal mask. I’ve been using the Modern Friction and Checks and Balance the last few days but the jury is still out at the moment!
