As many of you already know I kind of have an obsession with skincare products. I am constantly on the look out for the next best thing to keep my skin not only clear, but radiant and youthful. The obsession started during my pregnancy. Before I was pregnant my skin was always pretty clear, but man when those pregnancy hormones hit my skin freaked. I realized then that I didn’t really have a “routine” to keep my skin calm. I started to do research. I watched and read tons of other bloggers reviews, but I realized sometimes what works for others may not work for me. Especially if we do not have the same skin type. So before I start my review, I want to make sure I put a disclaimer out there. My skin is dry-to normal and not very problematic. I look for products that are going to clean my skin and make it radiant, hydrated, and youthful. If your skin is anything like mine, then maybe the products I mentioned will be worth a try. If not maybe try them anyway and let me know if it worked for you. I would love to hear your feedback.
A couple of weeks ago Origins reached out to me and asked if they could send me some products just for spreading how much I love their Origins Charcoal face mask! Origins, being one of my favorite brands, I of course said yes! When I received the products in the mail I was super excited to see it was this specific line of theirs. I have used some products from the line before and I loved them. I also saw some of my favorite bloggers post that they received the products, but I never really saw them use or review it. Either way I was very interested in trying it.
In my package I received the GinZing Refreshing eye cream and the tinted GinZing SPF. If I am being honest I already had used the GinZing Refreshing eye cream, but it was a travel size and I had used it up fairly quickly. I was extremely excited to see that product in the full size container, and to be able to use it for longer than a couple of weeks.The eye cream is a light salmon color and it is considered a morning eye cream. It is suppose to make you look awake and refreshed, and that it does! The color of it really makes this tired momma look like I got more sleep than I really did. The smell of this eye cream, and the whole line in general, is amazing. The GinZing line has a citrus-like smell to it, which is perfect in the morning to give you a little boost of energy and to really wake you up. I highly recommend this product if you are looking for something to give you that fresh face look.
The next product is something new to their brand. I normally am super hesitant about SPFs. My skin is super sensitive and can dry out really easily. Normally I can’t use a regular SPF every day as part of my morning routine, so I try to use a moisturizer or foundation that has some SPF built in. Even though I was hesitant I gave it a try. I use this on days where I do not need a full face of make-up. It has a slight tint to it that evens out the complexion of my skin. I have tried it with my fingers and with a brush, and I personally would rather use a brush with this product. My opinions are very clear. I like the look that it gives to my skin, but it is a tad bit sticky. In order to wear this all day I do set it with a light translucent powder and head on my way. It works great under concealer and in my opinion is a great product to have if you don’t like a full face of make-up everyday, but still want a little bit of coverage.
All in all I highly recommend these products! Origins is a great brand and in my opinion has very affordable products. Even though these products were sent to me, my opinions are true and honest and I probably would have bought them myself! I hope you guys give the products I mentioned a try and let me know in the comments if they worked out!
Lots of love….
