Most Helpful Positive Review Glowy Skin
When I first started using this, I was skeptical about the brightening effects because I've tried ones in the past and don't notice a difference. To note, my skin is on the oily side so it tends to get really dull easily, so I am definitely trying to look for something that isn't heavy and can make me more oily, but also keep my skin brighter, especially during the summer months. When I first tried the product, I liked how its very smooth and absorbs well and quite quickly. The texture is almost like a gel like moisturizer, but it doesn't really have too much of the gel like texture, only the slightest if you really try to notice the consistency. It feels almost like a very smooth moisturizer. I also like the scent of it. it smells like oranges with a mix of menthol or mint. One pump of it can pretty much get my whole face but sometimes I like to use 1.5 pumps to just bring the product down my neck.
I think the one thing I did notice about using the product was that it may clash with some skincare products depending on what type of product it is. I say this because I like to use oils for my moisturizer. So when I first tried this and massaged the oil on top, I noticed it would create a little bit of the eraser like pilling. Not a lot would come from it, but just a bit to notice. I think if I was using a cream, this wouldn't have a issue. But I have found a way to work with it with oils. I have tried to use less massaging motions and just started patting the oil into my skin so it doesn't create those eraser like particles.
I have used this for a couple of weeks and I have found that it has brightened my skin. I definitely notice it in some areas because when I use the product, I tend to focus it in the center of my face, but I forget about the outer edges on my face and so after using for a bit, I have noticed that the outer edged of my skin have a slighter darker tone to it. I am surprised that I noticed results from using this, also because sometimes I tend to forget to put on sunscreen when I go out, so I was afraid I wouldn't notice anything, but surprisingly, I have. I use it morning and night and I find that its very comfortable to wear so I can definitely see myself using this in my daily skincare routine. Overall I would totally recommend for people to try this product out if you're in the market for a brightening serum.
Most Helpful Critical Review Good for people who like scents
I love getting to try new serums, so I was really excited to try this Origins Ginzing Into the Glow Brightening Serum. It has several great ingredients like vitamin c, hyaluronic acid, squalane, and lactic acid. It applies easily and sinks in with no weird residue or tackiness. This serum does smell really good, but it has several essential and fragrance oils. Which will be a major plus to some people, but I prefer products with less fragrance due to the potential for irritation. Definitely check the ingredients if you have sensitivities or allergies. I will continue to use occasionally, but I personally don't want that many oils on my face on a daily basis.

Becky from Northern California
I ordered this for myself over the holiday's thinking that it could do what it actually says, brighten and glow. While it smells lovely, it feels very tacky when applied. When I use this in conjunction with the Ginzing daily moisturizer, it literly gums up like paste when I apply my foundation over it. I'm a long standing Origins customer and love several productions, but not this one.
Luna2 from Chicago
I bought this serum in the hopes that I would feel like I have that glow and bright/radiant skin that so many people wrote about, however, after about month of using it, I'm unsure if it's really doing much for my skin. I do like that the serum doesn't leave my face oily and the scent is very refreshing, but other than that I don't know...I really want to love it but I am unsure.
Great on Melanin
Wanda from Windsor, CT
I purchased this product while looking for a moisturizer. I have been using this product since the Covid shut down. I was inside most of the time without natural sunlight. I love this product!!!!In a month, I was staring at my face and touching it because it looked beautiful, even toned, healthy and felt so soft. The product is light, the smell is divine, and you only need a small amount. I am 51 and you would NEVER guess my age. It's been 7 months that I have been using this product and it's definitely a staple of mine. I just ran out, but will purchase again....and again. On my Covid Care list.
Cmac from Grand Rapids
I have tried a few serums in the past and thought they were okay....but I used this and my face literally glowed! It smoothed my face and made it so soft!
Sepitchk from Phoenix, AZ
This product was just ok at first after a week of use my skin broke out and was also really dry at the same time. I will never use this product again!
This serum is WOW
Asiana Grande from Philadelphia, PA
I'm coming from Kiehl's. Purchased this serum as one of my first Origins products to try it out. When I put this on after cleansing my face, it gave me an amazingly pleasant cooling sensation with a very nice citrusy smell. It did not leave any oily feels or anything. Some of the Kiehl's serums made for day time use definitely left my skin feeling oily, which I didn't like. I have combination skin.
My moisturizer went onto this serum very nicely. I also like the fact that it comes in an actual glass bottle, not some cheap plastic bottle. This serum definitely has the WOW factor. Will continue to use it!
Ellie from PA
In my 15 years using Origins I've never been a big fan of Ginzing line. Decided to try this new brightening serum. I'm still on my 1st jar.. so it's an ok day serum. It does provide a little moisture and a 'wake up' feeling maybe. I don't really have dark spots so I can't speak of how well it treats them. I don't hate it but I don't love it either. Would I purchase it again? Yea, maybe, sure; but I still prefer Plantscription anti-aging serum which is the best on this planet.
Hanniefletch from Boston, MA
This is my new favorite serum! After one use my skin was glowing! It just soaks in and leaves my skin looking fresh!
The best product in the world
Vickyxoxo from Arizona
After dealing with dry and overall bad skin, this product totally transformed my face. My face has had a tremendous decrease in breakouts in just a week. I love love LOVE this product. Would recommend this to everyone!!!!
Love love this new product
Tammy from Georgia
Decreases my pore size , has smoothed my skin and plumps it up
The best serum -- hands down!
MD from Boston, MA
I use AM & PM and its gentle enough on my sensitive skin. I've always used Origins products but with this serum I have had a noticeable difference within only a few days of use. My face doesn't feel dry mid day, and I wake up more even toned plus overall much less dull. I would highly recommend!
Mikaelah from MI
I love this product! I started using the GinZing line a couple of months ago and was so excited to add this to my routine. This product smells great and a little goes a long way. I use it in the morning and at night (before my moisturizer) and it gives me such a beautiful glow from within. It doesn't make me look greasy but leaves me with a beautiful youthful glow all day long, even without makeup. The only thing I would suggest is if you have sensitive skin this may be too much for you (or maybe use once daily rather than twice). It definitely makes my skin more sensitive, but not in a bad way, I just have to remember to moisturize and use sunscreen.
Lindsey from Michigan
I've been really pleased with this product! I use it at night only, but even with just one time a day use, I've noticed a difference in my skin. It has been quite a bit smoother and noticeably more hydrated, which contributes to overall brighter looking skin. I have slightly dry skin around my nose and it's been that way for years regardless of what products I use. The only time it went away is when I used a face scrub, followed by a hydrating mask, and even then, it only disappeared for a day or two. However, since using this product, I no longer have the dry patches of skin at all, and I haven't needed to use a face scrub in general because my skin is so smooth. I'm attributing this to the AHA/BHA complex and green coffee seed extract. This product has overall been really awesome!
A little goes a long way
Ehhsamanta from Great neck ny
With the Origins GinZing Into the Glow Brightening Serum a little goes a long way. Just a small drop was enough for my whole face. I apply after washing my face 2 times a day and noticed a difference in my skin texture very quickly. After lots of sun exposure over the last few months my skin was very dry and bumpy. The vitamin C helps brighten and Hyaluronic Acid helped give my face the hydration it needed. Also love that it has coffee extract which helps get rid of dead skin cells. Overall love this product and plan to continue using it.
Merylras from Reno, NV
I have only been using this product for 24 hours but I have already observed a huge improvement in my skin. My skin is plump and pores are minimal. I decided to skip makeup today which I rarely do and I have caught a few glimpses of myself in the mirror today and I am impressed! I have never felt this type of confidence with a bare face. Yesterday, however, I wore makeup and it wasn't a problem to have it underneath it at all. If anything my skin looked more smoother and it cling to my foundation well. I'm excited to wake up and put it on again!
Refreshing and smooth
Mandy from Yorktown, VA
I truly enjoyed this serum. it went on light, had a great smell. Overall it was refreshing and made my skin smoother.
Alex from Knoxville
I use this every single day. This product has helped my face look energized. I will 100% continue using thus product.
VillainousPixel from MI
This serum did great at resurfacing my skin and leaving a glow. I only used it at night. My skin was left soft.
Courtneymua.1027 from Stanford, Ky
Its an okay serum, but it didn't brighten as much as I had expected it to. I also don't like the orange smell that it has. The good thing about it though, it goes on super easy and smooth, it didn't make my skin feel oily, and it did brighten a little.
Amazing and Effective
Grace from USA
This has such a nice scent and isn't overpowering. It brightens your skin and is more effective after each use. It is gentle to the skin and works well with other products!
Not enough moisture
Canija from Lithonia GA
My skin isn't particularly dry, but this serum definitely requires some following up with a moisturizer.
I liked it a lot until it caused an allergic reaction.
TD from Southern California
I thought the serum was working well until I woke up with a rash across my neck. I was very surprised because Origins products don't usually cause any issues for me.
Holly26 from Milwaukee
I could visibly see my skin looked brighter and it was very gentle on my sensitive skin!
Didn't make me any more oily
Kayla from Cincinnati
I am pretty low maintenance skin wise. I battle oil during the summer when I'm sweating and dryness when it's cold. I haven't used it long enough to see if it really makes a difference in either of these categories but am happy that it didn't increase oil, or make me break out! Will see how it goes as I keep using
Love this serum!
Aquaheart from Los Angeles CA
This is a great serum that helps my skin feel more hydrated and brightens the skin.
