ORIGINS GinZing Energy Boosting Moisturizer

Hey All!

I recently scraped what was left of my morning moisturizer. I have ample samples in a box I have accumulated over time and they were… meh. The samples did not wake me up. I did not smell that zesty zing I unknowingly loved. My skin unknowingly loved that ZING. My skin and I needed another dang orange bottle, STAT!

Oh boy, when this baby was delivered I couldn’t help but wash my face and soak it in. As i opened the new bottle from its package I re-read the description:

This lightweight, oil-free, skin energy drink, fortified with legendary skin-boosters like Panax Ginseng and Coffee Bean, jumpstarts hydration levels. Lackluster-looking skin is rapidly refreshed and revitalized to create a healthy, vibrant glow.

Well now, did she say COFFEE BEAN? I suppose this is why my face loves it. My nostrils need to be awakened by it! It’s like Folger’s in a cup for us. The plus for me is that it is oil-freeeeeeeeee. It absorbs rather quickly and honest be – wakes. me. the. heck. up! I use this product only on no-makeup days so my canvas (skin) can breathe.

The directions state to use this for day and night but I have a different routine for night. Here are some photos alongside my night routine:

This moisturizer is from Lush (obviously) and is my moisturizer of choice in the morning before makeup application. I have gone through countless pots of these. It is fast absorbing and perfect for pre-application makeup days for my oily skin. See description in the picture. Retails for about $35 at
1.7 ounce of my no makeup day moisturizer. Retails for $27.50. Get 15% off your first order with email subscription at
Here are the ingredients
My facials cleansers of choice after wiping off the makeups. I alternate both so that they will last longer. No no – bad joke. Seriously: Herbalism is use for problematic skin days as it is more gentle. Angels On Bare skin is invigorating, I love it BUT I cannot use it every night without it causing too much abrasion. I am not that kind of girl, lol.
My skin care power tools that help my makeup look the way they should. I LOVE YOU.
Empty bottle, sad (left). Full bottle, HAPPY (right)
Have a great night from Los Angeles, BB’s! What your skin care routine like? Would love to hear them. I am always open to trying new products (oily-skin).

  1. I’m using their Night-A-Minis as my night cream. If you love citrus-y scent, you’ll love this one. I always hear great things around this GinZing one! I have too much day cream on stock right now. But will definitely try this one once I finished them. The GinZing eye cream is lovely too!
