We all know that Martha Stewart is one crazy ass lady. But you can’t deny that the woman knows her shit. I loved watching her show when it aired on the Lifestyle network and I always, always waited for her to say “it’s a good thing” with that creepy smile on her face as she told the audience about some fancy gardening pot or her latest line of bed sheets for Target. Half of me wanted to slap her for being a pretentious rich rich lady, but the other half of me totally wanted to run out to Target to buy those bed sheets, stat! Talk about creepily effective branding. Anyway, I’m no Martha. There’s only one Martha (just as there is only one Britney), but I totally look into the mirror, pretend that I am her, and say “it’s a good thing” whenever I use the Origins GinZing Energy-Boosting Moisturizer. Its goodness is undeniable.
I think I mentioned recently that my skin are routine hasn’t been very consistent. I’ve taken to treating the problems as they arise and trying to create a balance by listening to my skin. I have combination skin so I do not use a moisturiser everyday and rarely all over the face. I like moisturising specific areas that need it. I pick up the GinZing moisturiser maybe every other day, but it’s especially great for when my skin is feeling dull.
The entire GinZing line boosts skin radiance with ingredients like Ginseng and coffee bean. The moisturiser boats an oil-fee, lightweight formula that is absorbed into the skin very quickly but does not feel absolutely useless. If you have dry skin, this may not be heavy enough for your needs, but my combo skin loves it. I love that I can feel the ingredients giving my skin a boost and that it smells like oranges (and not the artificial kind).
What sucks is that Origins is not a locally available brand. I always pick up my fave masks from the brand at airports when I travel, but I wish they would open up shop here so that I could try even more of their stuff. They use natural ingredients and all of their products are formulated free of parabens and other harmful chemicals. This isn’t so much a review as it is an opportunity for me to say (publicly):
Origins GinZing Energy-Boosting Moisturizer. It’s a good thing. ;)
