Origins GinZing Energy-Boosting Tinted Moisturiser SPF 40 Review & Swatch-
Hello lovely ladies 🙂
I am terribly lazy & hate putting on elaborate makeup on a daily basis but a few acne scars, random breakouts & marks beg me for a msbb finish with minimal coverage. So enters a tinted moisturiser! I love my NARS one dearly & was almost about to repurchase when I saw a newer launch by Origins with a higher SPF of 40 with lots of claims ^_^

My take on the Origins GinZing Energy-Boosting Tinted Moisturiser SPF 40-
The TM comes in a bright orange plastic tube with a white plastic flip-top lid (ditto with the other products of the GinZing range) & is hygienic, easy to use & carry 😀
The moisturiser is creamy white in color with some tiny greyish micro particles suspended in it but they are never distinguishable as I massage it on my skin. The texture is medium thin with a creamy, very blend-able consistency & it feels satiny smooth as it sinks into skin instantly.
And the instant glow? Oh my Gawd! My skin looks smooth, radiant, lit from within with a very obvious glow which does NOT look oily at all ^_^ Skin just looks very healthy, hydrated & radiant as if I have just had a facial done!
I love how hydrating it feels on skin without any tacky/greasy residue & the effect lasts on my skin throughout the day without accentuating the drier patches of my face.
The coverage is very sheer & if you have generally good skin overall, it is enough for daily basis without any need for heavier makeup.
It comes with a high SPF of 40 & I never have to double up with another sunscreen even during the harsh summers-I just slather this on & am good to go. It does not leave behind any whitish cast on skin & I have never seen any ugly flashback in photos.
The tinted moisturiser has the same zingy, orange scent as the GinZing cream & it lingers for quite sometime on my skin 🙂
Pros of the Origins GinZing Energy-Boosting Tinted Moisturiser SPF 40:
1> Very user & travel friendly sturdy plastic tube with flip-top lid.
2> Satin-soft, creamy, lightweight texture, blends in a jiffy.
3> Instantly brightens up skin & covers up minor imperfections & uneven tone.
4> Skin looks bare & naturally radiant.
5> Hydrates skin but does not leave behind any greasy/tacky feeling.
6> Comes with SPF 40.
7> Does not aggravate my sensitive skin.
8> Does not leave any whitish cast.
9> Has a fresh, zingy orange fragrance 🙂
Cons of the Origins GinZing Energy-Boosting Tinted Moisturiser SPF 40:
None at all 🙂
Swatch of the Origins GinZing Energy-Boosting Tinted Moisturiser SPF 40-
My Rating: 5/5!
