Origins GinZing Energy-Boosting Moisturizer


It seems that for the past couple of months I've been all about skincare, reading never ending skincare blog posts on products I know can't get my hands on and adding more and more to my wishlist. Well, about two weeks ago I went on a short trip to Hong Kong to visit family together with my prepared list of raved skincare and makeup bits by bloggers that I religiously follow.

Origins is a skincare brand I've been dying to try for awhile now, so when I went out of the country I took the chance to finally try a few things from them to see what the hype is all about. I decided on two of one of the most loved items from the American brand: the Drink-Up Intensive Mask and the GinZing Energy-Boosting Moisturizer, since I needed a daytime moisturizer that would work well with the Philippines' humidity. 

It was love at first whiff. I take one deep inhale in the adorable orange tub and the burst of citrus wakes me up. The scent of oranges and consistency is refreshing and perfect for groggy mornings, since it's a lightweight gel that feels cool on the skin. My skin drinks it up quickly too so I don't have to wait long before following with my makeup routine, plus it isn't sticky nor heavy. I suffer from combination/oily skin and I can say that using this has helped with that issue, since it's oil free.

I'm in love with this stuff, it's as if it was tailor made for someone like me who lives in a tropical country with dull and combination/oily skin. Ingredients like panax ginseng and coffee beans are the ones responsible for boosting my skin's hydration levels. This cream's properties are also said to create a healthy and vibrant glow, now I can't tell if it made a difference in that department just yet - but I'll report back! If that works, then that's just an added bonus for me.

What product do you use as a daytime moisturizer? Have you tried anything from Origins?

  3. Did you say citrus? :D
    I definitely need to try a sample of this cream out now, but the price tag of Origin's products kinda makes it a purchase deterrent @_@

    I've tried two of Origins masks, and I really like their 'Out of Trouble' mask!
