Point blank, I received the Origins Ginzing Energy Boosting Gel Moisturizer in a sample bag from none other than, you guessed it: Sephora! Here’s a link to the actual product (and yes it’s GinZING).
This moisturizer not only smells amazing but it is pretty calming. I love citrus scents when I’m applying my moisturizer in the morning time (see my review on Ole Henrickson’s truth serum to know the full effect of why I love it so much). BUT, I thought this product would be like any other moisturizer and I wasn’t really quite sure where the “gel” comes into effect.
But, it wasn’t really that important because this product glides on so smoothly you don’t feel like you’re applying anything too thick. It also melts into the skin at record speed so I’m not waiting (like some of my other moisturizers).
Also, when the Origins Ginzing Energy Boosting Gel Moisturizer dries, it becomes more matte on your skin. You don’t get the greasy look that some other moisturizers give you and I found that it was the perfect prep step for my morning beauty and makeup routine.
The full size runs $36 which isn’t bad for a trusted skin care brand. When I finish the sample size I’m DEFINITELY going to buy the whole size (damn you Sephora!). I’m in love with some other moisturizers which you can read about here.
Sometimes, Sephora bundles Origins products together in smaller sizes you can try before you buy which is what I did. Take a look at the Sephora Origins page here.
Seeing as I’m looking for a new cleanser and mask, I may be swayed and tempted to open the Origins vault and try all of the other products they offer so stay tuned for more of my crazy skin care reviews!
