Origins GinZing Energy Boosting Moisturiser
Hey Lovelies,
A couple of weeks ago I was incredibly lucky to get invited to an Origins event which was held at the Leica Gallery in Mayfair. I nearly wasn't able to go because I was on the late shift at work that day, but luckily a last minute rota change meant I had a day off, and even though I felt a bit of a cold coming on I still went along to the event as Origins is, together with Clarins, my favourite skincare brand. So as you can probably imagine, I was incredibly excited about this event! 
Upon arrival at the Leica Gallery, the guests, which included make up artists, bloggers and press were greeted by the Origins PR team treated to some lovely cocktails and canapes. We were introduced to the Origins team and learned a little more about the brand. If you follow me on Instagram, you will have seen that Origins also organised a Pick and Mix of their products at the event. It's pretty safe to say this is the best Pick and Mix I've ever seen, and everyone at the event got an extremely generous goody bag full of Origins products to take home. I'm going to review all those products separately for you, and today's post is going to be all about the Origins GinZing Energy Boosting Moisturiser which I chose from the Pick and Mix.
Origins GinZing Energy Boosting Moisturiser
I picked the Origins GinZing Energy Boosting Moisturiser for my goody bag because it's a beauty blogger favourite and I've been pretty keen to find out what all the fuss is about. Well, after using this product daily for the past 2 weeks I am happy to say that the Origins GinZing  Moisturiser certainly lives up to the hype surrounding it! This product contains Panax Ginseng and Coffee Beans to help refresh your skin and keep you hydrated and looking radiant. It's completely oil free and has a lovely cirtus scent to it. Now as the scent of this product is quite strong, I can imagine it not being to everyone's taste. However personally I love the smell of this Origins moisturiser and it makes a nice change from the floral scents many skincare products seem to have. I would say that the Origins GinZing moisturiser has more of a gel rather than a cream texture, perhaps even sitting somewhere in between the two. It absorbs really quickly into my skin when I apply it and makes a perfect base for my make up. 
Now as my skin type is combination it can be quite difficult for me to find products that are moisturing enough but don't leave my face looking oily. I work on an airconditioned shop floor and the Origins GinZing Energy Boosting Moisturiser has been keeping me hydrated all day long. I have also noticed that my T-zone has become less oily since I started using this product. I never really thought I'd find a product that comes close to my Clarins Multi Active Day Cream, but Origins are really giving Clarins a run for their money with this moisturiser! 
The Origins GinZing Energy Boosting Moisturiser retails for £23.00. I'm sure I'm not the only one who has noticed that high end skincare is becoming more and more expensive. Well done Origins for bringing out an amazing high end moisturiser that doesn't break the bank. Other brands seriously need to take note. You can use this moisturiser morning and night, but as I am in my early 30s (nearly 33 now - argh!!) I would rather use a product with anti aging properties in the evenings, so this will just be a daytime moisturiser for me. The only thing I'd change about the product is perhaps adding an SPF to it, but other than that I am happy to say I have found another favourite to add to my ever growing list of Origins products I love! 
What are your favourite Origins products?
I hope you've enjoyed this post and thanks for reading!

  7. An Origins pick and mix sounds like heaven. This is on my wish list although I have so many moisturisers at the moment I'm waiting to work my through before I treat myself to this.

  10. Superb review! I really would love to get my hands in this moisturiser - seen loads of posivitve reviews - the only problem is that I have the 'poor poor student' status at the moment, so can't afford it :(
