How are you all dealing with the weather? With the changing weather, our skin care needs a change too. With my oily and acne-prone skin, finding a moisturizer that maintains my skin’s balance without making it look greasy is a daunting task. For a long time, my favorite moisturizer has been Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel. Now, I just wanted to explore and try something new. After being impressed with the Origins GinZing Refreshing Eye Cream that I have already reviewed, I went ahead and bought the Origins GinZing Energy Moisturizer. Let us see how it fared on my skin type.
Instantly hydrates and revs up radiance. This lightweight, oil-free, skin energy drink, fortified with legendary skin-boosters like Panax Ginseng and Coffee Bean, jumpstarts hydration levels. Lackluster-looking skin is rapidly refreshed and revitalized to create a healthy, vibrant glow. Best for all skin types.
$26.50 for 1.7 fl. oz. or 50 ml product.
It comes in a beautiful orange plastic jar with a protective plastic shield on top. It has a white twist cap. Although, I am not a fan of the jar packaging for hygienic reasons, but I can work with it. The quality is pretty nice. It has traveled with me without any spillage.
My Experience with Origins GinZing Energy Boosting Moisturizer:
My experience with this moisturizer has been nothing but great. I was actually nervous when I bought it, even though the sales person said very confidently that this one will work for my oily skin type, but after having used it for a few weeks now, I am very happy that I discovered this and it is the beginning of a new love (feel sorry for my Clinique one though 😛 ). This is a gel to creamy texture product, provides ample amount of hydration for my skin in this cold and dry weather. When I apply it, feels very light in texture, absorbs very easily in to the skin without leaving my skin greasy. It makes my skin feel very soft, smooth and hydrated. It has this zingy citrusy scent that lifts up my senses. I just love the smell.
Another important thing is that it did not give me any breakouts. It is free of mineral oil which is an extremely common ingredient in cosmetic products like moisturizers, foundations, lip balms and hair products. Mineral oil is not considered good for our skin as it slows down cell renewal process and is also known to exaggerate acne in some people. It is interesting to see that it has so many different natural oils like grapefruit oil, spearmint oil, lemon peel oil, jojoba oil etc, which all are very beneficial for the skin.
Now while this moisturizer is great for oily combination skin type, I doubt if this will hydrate dry skin enough for the winters, but it can definitely work for dry skin in summer time.
Pros of Origins GinZing Energy Boosting Moisturizer:
- Provides good amount of hydration.
- Does not make skin greasy.
- Smells amazingly citrusy.
- Makes skin feel soft and refreshed.
- Does not cause break outs.
- Contains natural ingredients.
Cons of Origins GinZing Energy Boosting Moisturizer:
- Pricey but it is worth it.
- Might not provide enough hydration for dry skin people.
I will definitely repurchase this product. All of you ladies with combination to oily skin should definitely try it this winter.
