Even though you may be a self-professed beauty junkie, we all love to pair down our makeup and skincare routines when it comes to summer. The days are hotter and the nights are warmer and many of us just don’t want to weigh down our skin with heavy products.
This is exactly why I love to use light beauty products during the warmer seasons, especially ones that are multipurpose. My favourite are tinted moisturizers, which offer hints of colour so you can forego heavy foundations.
The new Origins Ginzing SPF 40 Energy Boosting Tinted Moisturizer does just that. It’s a clever multitasker that hydrates, energizes, gives skin a subtle tint of colour and protects from UV. It also has a citrus scent I love that gives you a perky boost.
The boost of energy also comes from Panax Ginseng and Coffee Beans, which act as antioxidants, help fight against aging and reinvigorate the skin.
When I tested out the product I was skeptical at first because of the white-ish colour and how much it glistened. However, once I blended it into the skin, it immediately melted in. And because the tint of colour is intuitive to your skin tone, you’ll get soft coverage and a subtle healthy glow.
Origins Ginzing SPF 40 Energy Boosting Tinted Moisturizer retails for $49 CAD.
