Most Helpful Positive Review Great Product
I've been using this moisturizer for about month now, and it's great! - I have combination skin and I'm usually never without a pimple or two or three. But, my skin has been so good since I've been using this moisturizer.
I was running out of my previous moisturizer and needed to purchase a new one, and I've been meaning to try a new brand. I was also going to Europe soon for a few weeks so I wanted to get something that was under 3.0 oz so I wouldn't have a spend money on a normal-sized moisturizer for home AND a travel-sized moisturizer. After much research (and positive experiences with other Origin products), I settled on this moisturizer and I'm so happy with it! I use this at night and I use the VITAZING SPF 15 moisturizer during the day.
It's super light-weight which is awesome if you tend to get oily, yet moisturizing enough for my "normal" areas like my cheeks...however, I will probably switch over to something heavier during the the colder/drier California winter months. It smells wonderful as well - if you like citrusy scents.
The only thing I would change about the moisturizer is....a pump bottle? I'm not huge fan of dipping my fingers over-and-over again into a pot even though I know my fingers are clean. I don't even like using lip balms that are in a pot/tin.
Most Helpful Critical Review Mehh..
Nothing is for everyone. I thought: let me wear an SPF-free moisturizer for the days I stay indoor.
So I bought this, just for moisture. When I first apply this, it is fresh, absorbs quickly and my skin feels moisturized. Come back an hour later: my skin in shiny-oily, the same teenage look I really want to forget. Not for me, not for me, not for me.
With the APW with SPF-25 (love, love, love) , my skin looks fresh and mate till I wash it again at night, and mind you, it's meant for normal/dry skin.
For some reason, the GinZin makes my skin produce more oil. So..No, I'll pass on this one, will give it away.

I've been using this gel each morning for 3 weeks now and I'm loving how it's making my skin look. It feel refreshed and soft. Which is exactly what I need after a few months of staying inside all the time
Little energizing gem
Fran from Missouri, usa
I love origins products. First of, this products is vegetarian and list of ingredients is short which means is a product on the clean side which is a plus. The smell is AMAZING. It has like a tangerine smell, but so good. This moisturizer is a little gem. I have oily skin, so its hard to find a product that absorbs quickly and it doesn't leave a greasy feeling on my face. It does exactly what is advertised for. It leave my skin moisturized without leaving it greasy (absorbs really fast). Its a great accessory for someone with combo/oily skin. However, For winter times/dry skin I think this won't be the right product for you, since it's very light moisturizer (Amazing for the summer)
Once you put the cream on your face, because of the ginseng and the coffee it does give you a nice tingling sensation, so it does feels like awakening sensation (wouldn't recommend applying it after strong exfoliator or retinol products because it can be a bit too much for your skin)

First of all the smell is amazing I love that it smells so citrusy but what I loved the most is that it didn't hurt my skin and I have pretty sensitive skin! To have a product with fragrance not adfect my skin was just amazing for me! Totally recommend this product!

Best item I've received!
Brook from San Antonio TX
I am in love with this stuff. I am all about hydration and love to try new moisturizers. This is now my go-to morning moisturizer. The smell is amazing and wakes you up! Sometimes i even put it on at night. I use hada lobo first then apply this and my skin is super gooey and refreshed in the morning when usually it's dry!
Wendy R from Texas
This moisturizer has replaced my daily moisturizer that I loved so much! It is extremely refreshing and the scent is fresh and energizing! It smells of citrusy goodness so if you are sensitive to fragrance this may not be the best option for you, but it worked perfectly for me! Consistency is great and it quick absorbing, feels cool when applied and you can instantly feel your skin more "awake". Looking forward to trying more products in this Ginzing line! Price point is excellent as well for the quality!
Prerna from California
Firstly I love Origins. Their products work on my skin. So I was excited to try this oil-free gel moisturizer. Even though it is oil-free, it is very hydrating which I love since, with the changing weather, my skin turns drier. I could instantly feel the difference - like less stretching of the skin, etc. I also loved the fact that it is lightweight so after a serum, moisturizer, and sunscreen, the skin didn't feel like it couldn't breathe!
Amazing Origins Moisturizer
Tiffany from Colorado
I love this product. I have oily skin and this works like a charm. It has a really nice scent but not too powerful. It leaves my skin very moisturized and soft without feeling sticky or greasy. I am excited and can't wait to use it every night before bedtime because it is saving my skin. The package also looks wonderful. I will definitely recommend Origin moisturizer to my friends and family. Thanks Bzzagent for the opportunity to try this amazing product :)
Nice dewy glow
GypsyRose03 from Washington
This moisturizer is a nice, lightweight gel cream that leaves your skin feeling moisturized, but not oily. The smell, which is also lightweight and fades quickly reminds me of an orange creamsicle kind of smell. Then you get a hint of spice from the ginger. I think this would be moisturizing enough for combination or oily skin and I think that dryer skin types may need to add a bit of oil or other barrier moisturizer because it does absorb quickly. I received this item free for my honest and unbiased review.
My skin finally look refreshed
Ketevan from DE
Usually i have very hard time finding good moisturizer considering my combination/acne-prone skin. However, i am enjoying this gel-cream moisturizer a lot. The formula is simply Brilliant! It absorbs into the skin very easily and doesn't leave it feeling greasy. I started to notice the difference with this moisturizer after using it only for few days, I put it on before going to bed and in the morning my skin feels and looks bright, refreshed, and overall healthier. I will for sure keep purchasing this moisturizer.
Sandy from CA
This is an ultra lightweight gel moisturizer! It feels super refreshing on my skin!
I really like these type of gel moisturizers because of my oily skin.
Kourtney from NY
This product is lightweight, oil-free and energy boosts the skin using gingseng & coffee. It smells really good has a citrus smell to it. One benefit of owning this product is it helps tired skin and helps moisturize it. I definitely recommend getting this product.

GinZing Oil-Free Energy-Boosting Gel Moisturizer!!
Rojit from San Francisco, California
This moisturizer is omg hands down the best!! To begin with the smell is citrusy/orange so refreshing but it is not strong at all. The moisturizer is lightweight and doesn't make my skin oily/greasy. You only need to apply a small amount and it will go a long way. It keeps my skin hydrated and gives instant radiance. I have been using this for over 2 weeks now and I did not feel any irritation or breakouts. I absolutely love this moisturizer and will highly recommend it!!
Great smelling product!

The Best Oil free Gel Moisturizer!!
Madeeha from Virginia
I received my Origins Ginzing Oil Free Energy Boosting Gel Moisturizer from Bzzagent. This is my first time trying this Gel Moisturizer, and I am in love with this cream. It's so light on skin, absorbs quickly, leaves a fresh hydrated moisturized soft skin. I have dry skin, I am always looking for some good Moisturizer that hydrates my skin well. Luckily I found this Gel Moisturizer it does wonders to my skin. I really like it also because I feel like it's super invigorating and refreshing because of the ingredients it has and the way it smells. It's like a citrus energy shot, very nice citrus smell but not overwhelming. It smells soo good. You don't need a lot of product either so this can last you awhile. I apply this Gel Moisturizer on my skin prior doing my make up, and when its completely absorbed I can do my make up easily. It's lasts quite long. I would definitely buy this. I also recommended it to my friends. It has a beautiful packaging that is convenient to carry with me. Comparing with other brands Moisturizer for dry skin, they always make your skin looking oily and shiny because if their ingredients, but Origins Energy Boosting Gel has a very soft texture that helps to absorb quickly and moisturize the skin, and gives boost to dull looking skin that is non greasy. I m so happy to find this Moisturizer for me. Thank you so much for giving me opportunity to try this wonderful product .
My New Fave Moisturizer
Deni from Montgomery, AL
I was already loving the moisturizer because of the smell but since using it (I was using a trial size before this package came,) I am in just in LOVE. It makes my skin feel very moisturized and hydrated after use. It's not sticky, the smell itself isn't too strong, and it's not greasy. This is a staple in my morning skincare routine. Will definitely be keeping this in my rotation for a WHILE.
Nana from Louisiana
OMG The smell alone is amazing the citrus really awakens the skin in the morning and calms the skin at night.... Origins GinZing Oil-Free Energy-Boosting Gel Moisturizer is vey lightweight,silky on the skin, really left my skin feeling hydrated with no oily residue also making my skin visibly brighter I love it and will purchase in the future
very light and good moisturizer
pdxcats from portland
Like usual, Origins makes great products. I have tzone skin but with the winter and fall air, it makes my skin more dry. This gel moisturizer didn't break me out. It made my skin look good. I use it in the morning and at night. Since it is gel based, you don't need a lot. I like to apply extra at night (kind of like making it a mask). The scent is fairly light. It smells a lot like the orange and vanilla ice cream. I also like that it does not leave my face "sticky".
The only thing I don't like is the jar packaging. I always loose the little spoons so I use qtips or even my finger.
Meg from NC
I love the packaging and scent. It's really easy to blend in
The perfect daily moisturizer
Grace from Orange County, California
I'm obsessed with this moisturizer! It's a thin yet moisture filled formula that's perfect for morning skincare. Also, the smell is a light and bight citrus sent that wakes you up and keeps you refreshed! I love this product and would definitely repurchase!

This product is amazing on my sensitive skin! It smells amazing as well
