Origins Gin Zing moisturiser, £23.
I'm very picky when it comes to moisturiser - it has to be the right texture but I like them to be oil free but hydrating enough for my combination skin. Step up Origins Gin Zing energy boosting moisturiser, a recent release from the skincare brand. Origins describe it as a 'lightweight, oil-free, skin energy drink' to 'jump start hydration levels to give lack lustre skin a healthy vibrant glow.' Well, like I've said before, this may be 'the one'...
Gin Zing comes in a bright orange jar that hints at the scent of the moisturiser - it really does smell like chocolate oranges! A perfect scent to start the day with. It's a gorgeous gel consistency that doesn't feel heavy when applied at all. It's light and after use my skin feels soft and looks refreshed. Due to the gel consistency it makes a perfect make up base as it doesn't over hydrate the skin. I'd say this is ideal for those with oilier skin or combination skin like me. It hasn't made me break out at all, as it's free from parabens and other nasties like mineral oil and paraffin.
It's the most affordable out of all the Origins moisturisers - still not cheap I know - but I've been using this over a month and barely made a dent in it, so this will definitely last a while. Even though it's a lighter moisturiser I still feel it will be hydrating enough for winter! Definitely a new favourite here.
