‘Im writing this post with a severe case of holiday blues, having just returned from an amazing holiday in Portugal. After a week of fab weather, I’ve picked up a lovely wee tan – but while I was there (and as always) I was super conscious of keeping my skin safe.
This Origins GinZing™ SPF 40 Energy-Boosting Moisturizer with Sheer Tint Release, is designed to help your skin be more hydrated, energized, perfected and protected. After purchasing it at this years Dedicated to Girls event, I packed it up with the rest of my holiday essentials & lotions, ready to give it a try.
As well as protecting your skin from harmful UV rays (with SPF 40), GinZing also adds a sheer tint to provide a flawless finish. Adapting to your own skin tone, this product comes out as a light cream and adapts as it’s massaged into your skin.
With key ingredients of Coffee Beans and Panax Ginseng – it smells AMAZING, whilst leaving your skin looking more vibrant, radiant and healthy. I suffer from a really oily t-zone, so when I apply suntan lotion it usually leaves me with a super shiny face. This cream did a great job of minimising shine and instead, provided a lovely a dewy glow.
In terms of coverage, it is very light and it is important to emphasise that it is just a sheer tint. I’ve massaged the product into the thumb area in the picture below for you to compare to the above as a guide.
I was really glad that I’d packed this little gem in my suitcase and think it looks beautiful with a tan. For general day to day use back home, for me, I’m not sure whether it would provide enough coverage, but it would be great for a wee boost on low key makeup days.
Verdict: Definitely recommended as a holiday product, but yet to be convinced to add it to my makeup bag back home.
