I've always wanted to try Origins products but never really got round to it. The GinZing Energy Boosting Moisturiser is one of Origins' best selling products. For summer 2015, Origins released a limited edition design and super size version. I thought this was the perfect timing to finally try out Origins~ The limited edition design is simplistic, not anything special nor much difference from the original. It just a print on the lid.

On the other hand, the super size 75ml is an absolute bargain! £1 more for 25ml of extra product thats worth £34.50 value - take my money! As for the moisturiser itself; it has a gel consistency thats very lightweight, absorbs quickly and is refreshing~ Not greasy and does not leave any residue. It has an uplifting orangey citrus scent thats wonderful for using in the morning as it wakes you up and brightens your mood overall. Great for summer as it's fresh and lightweight. However, for winter (especially with the dry UK weather) I think the hydration it provides won't be enough. 

I like to use this as a daily daytime moisturiser after cleansing and toning; it preps the skin nicely for makeup application too. It makes my skin appear slightly less dull and plumped throughout the day. I think the moisturiser is suitable for all skin types. It doesn't contain any harmful chemical so it would be good choice for my sensitive skin friends. Lightweight and oil-free for my oily skin friends and all the in between for other skin types. Overall a good product, however I do wish that it contained SPF too. I do recommend this if you're looking for a moisturiser that brightens, hydrates and don't mind spending a little extra on skincare. ^^

Rating: 7.5/10

If you want to try this out, the limited edition super size is only available while stocks last. You can get it from Origins counters (I got mine from House of Fraser), the Origins' official site, Boots, Sephora etc. ^__^

Have you try any Origin products?
