Origins GinZing Energy Boosting Gel Moisturizer Review & Swatch-

My take on the Origins GinZing Energy Boosting Gel Moisturizer-
The entire GinZing range comes in vivid orange packaging & this cream comes in a bright orange sturdy tub with a white matte screw-on lid. It comes in various sizes & is easy to use & carry.
The moisturizer is a white colored gel-cream hybrid which feels so cooling & soothing immediately upon application. It is a hydrating drink for your parched skin *_* The cream sinks into my skin within moments & my skin looks & feels fresh & plump with all dryness, irritation melted away. It leaves behind absolutely no greasy/sticky feel <3
I use this in multiple ways & often mix it with a few drops of foundation to create a tinted moisturizer & slather it on whenever I don’t feel like wearing any makeup. This works fabulously as a day/night cream, after sun exposure to soothe skin & immediately perks up skin on sultry mornings.
This moisturizer has a subtle fresh orangey fragrance which wakes me up whenever I apply. It doesn’t linger much though.
Pros of the Origins GinZing Energy Boosting Gel Moisturizer:
1> Cute tub packaging- very travel friendly & sturdy.
2> Lightweight gel-cream hybrid texture- sinks into skin within moments.
3> Hydrates skin beautifully without any tacky/heavy feel.
4> Can be used whenever required, for simply any purpose 🙂
5> Immediately soothes & calms skin after sun exposure, threading/waxing!
6> Fresh, subtle orangey fragrance which does not linger much.
7> For all skin types, especially combination-oily skin.
Cons of the Origins GinZing Energy Boosting Gel Moisturizer:
None at all.
Swatch of the Origins GinZing Energy Boosting Gel Moisturizer-
My Rating: 5/5!
Do I recommend the Origins GinZing Energy Boosting Gel Moisturizer?
Origins GinZing Energy Boosting Gel Moisturizer is a refreshing, lightweight yet hydrating gel cream which I love as much as my trusty Clinique moisture Surge gel cream & I highly recommend it if you have combination skin like me 🙂 Love, love it!
