Although I may be known as a down-right beauty obsessive I do have some constraint when it comes to purchasing all of my heart's desires. Every once in a while however, a product comes along that I just can't stop myself buying and when I discovered Origins were bring out a GinZing Moisturiser it's pretty needless to say that it was in the cart and purchased in under a minute.

I've always been a big fan of the original GinZing Eye Cream, light enough to wear under make up but packed with moisture in an excellent de-puffing and brightening formula. That all sounds wonderful on paper but theres something else about this range that I can just count on to work when I need it to and I've always wondered why they haven't expanded it into a wider product base. Step in GinZing Energy-Boosting Moisturiser.

The consistency is very light, almost bordering on gel-like thanks to it's oil free formula. I've had a tiny problem in the past with Origins moisturisers not working in easily enough but this one glides on like a dream and only the smallest amount is needed to cover the entire face. Packed with skin boosting ingredients including Ginseng and Caffeine, the scent is a deliciously fruity and invigorating combination, perfect for a perk up in the morning where I can actually see the brightening effect it has on my dull, just-woken-up skin.

I find it works as a great base for make up on my slightly combination skin, keeping oil at bay but still upping the moisture in dryer areas. I don't personally find it hydrating enough to wear overnight though where I need to pack on something a lot richer and oil based to keep my skin satisfied but I'm more than happy to reserve this for mornings when my skin needs a good boost.
