The Origins GinZing Duo
Origins is a brand that never fails to disappoint me, no matter what product i try. When the origins GinZing energy-boosting moisturizer came out, i knew i had to have it, so off i trotted down to boots on the day of its release, and I've been loving it ever since.
The purchase of the moisturizer lead me to start using the GinZing refreshing eye cream again, as i'd been neglecting it for a while. These two products work together like a dream, and i have no idea why i stopped using the latter.
The origins GinZing moisturizer has the same texture and scent as the high potency night-a-mins from origins. It's a lightweight, gel like texture with a zesty scent. It absorbs quickly into the skin, leaving your skin feeling soft, hydrated, refreshed and glowing. I have normal/dehydrated skin, and on a normal skin day i find that this alone gives my skin enough hydration, and then when paired with my favourite product hydraluron, it gets rid of any signs of dryness/dehydration i may have. If you have combination/oily skin then i think you'll love this moisturizer, as its so lightweight and sinks in almost immediately, meaning it doesn't even feel like you've got a layer sitting on top. If you have really dry skin this may not be enough for you, but for me this is the perfect summertime moisturizer as it really helps to brighten the skin along with keeping it hydrated enough, without making me oily.
Onto the eye cream, this product is quite different from other eye creams I've tried. It's thick in texture, but it absorbs quickly into the skin. Whats interesting about it is that its a light peach colour with shimmer running through it. At first i didn't like this and only used it occasionally, but now i use it every day as it really wakes up the eyes and helps to disguise dark circles. The peachy colour combined with the shimmer really helps to make me look more alive, which is great, especially when you haven't had much sleep. I tend to get quite dry eyes, but once this is applied my eyes feel comfortable and hydrated throughout the day. It's also very cooling and feels wonderful to use. Unfortunately, the scent isn't all that nice, it smells like a typical cream.
The packaging of the products is great, the bright orange really reflects the energy boosting theme the products have, and although the pots are quite large they aren't too chunky or heavy. With both products costing £23 each they aren't the cheapest, but they are much more affordable than most. You get a lot of product for your money and i can see each product lasting up to 6 months, so i'd say that they're well worth it. These products have become a staple in my skincare routine and i would definitely repurchase.
Origins is available at boots, john lewis, harrods, debenhams, house of fraser and directly from origins.
