Come morning, you’re neither looking so young nor feeling so fun. Thankfully, this brightening, botanical-packed moisturizer deflates puffiness and boosts hydration for an instant pick-me-up.

Moderate Moisturizer, Overpowering Smell

This is a very lightweight, OIL-FREE moisturizing option from the generally excellent Origins' brand. As its name suggests, it does provide a refreshing zing and it restores most moisture lost from other skin cleansing products. But, as an oil-free option, I wouldn't suggest it for dry or combination-dry skin which would benefit from greater hydration. And, even as someone with generally oily skin, it doesn't offer the kind of conditioning, softening or aging-prevention that I'm looking for. Unlike more targeted moisturizers from Origins, this one doesn't provide much additional care.

Many reviewers like the vibrant citrus smell. I don't. It winds up smelling like an orange popsicle, and lingers on the skin longer than I would like.

So far, great!!
Purchased

I started using this moisturizer along with the Checks and Balances face wash from Origin. So far they are working great together. My skin is clearer. The few little break outs I had have cleared up. I love the smell, it is fresh with a little citrus. My skin feels smooth and not greasy. And a little goes a long way.

Really lovely daytime moisturizer
Purchased

First off, I have really sensitive skin so it is hard for me to find a product that doesn't break me out. This is awesome stuff, I have dry combo sensitive skin and this doesn't give me any issues! I love the scent, its a light orange cream smell that fades quickly so it doesn't get overpowering. The texture is very light, I actually would like it to be a bit thicker but its really great at soaking into your skin and moisturizes really well, not sticky at all. Overall, I love it, it is a new beauty staple in my routine for sure. Plus I love the ingredients!

truly energy-boosting
Purchased

I never received the sample of this moisturizer but I was desperately in need of a new one. I looked at all of the other reviews and that's what sold me. It was highly recommended and I really feel that is "energy-boosting."

Go-to moisturizer

I use this every morning under my make up. The smell is wonderful and it always wakes me up a little bit more when I put it on.

Favorite moisturizer
Purchased

This moisturizer smells refreshing, easy to apply on the face and I use it for both daytime and nighttime. It's light enough to where I don't feel greasy and strong enough to where I don't feel dry. Perfect balance!

Origins Ginzing Moisturizer
Purchased

This is the perfect day-time moisturizer. It's light, easy to apply and smells wonderful! I love starting my morning make-up routine with this moisturizer. In my opinion, it's not thick enough for a night cream, but for day, it's perfect!

Citrus!!
Purchased

Strong orange scent that I really like and works well for me. This stuff keeps my skin looking super fresh and was easily adopted into my morning routine. Only drawback is there are no drawbacks you should get this.

A wonderful moisturiser that will make your skin feel great!
Purchased

Oh wow, this stuff is absolutely wonderful! Firstly, it has a beautiful orangey scent which is very pleasant and not overpowering at all. I've noticed that my skin looks a lot healthier since i've started using this. I initially bought it just as a day moisturiser, but I love it so much that i've started to apply it at night too. I've noticed that my face doesn't seem as puffy in the morning when i've applied this the night before. I am a little concerned that it's not thick enough for winter as my skin can still feel a little tight at times during the chilly season, but it's nothing terrible. I definitely recommend this product!
