Most Helpful Positive Review no makeup - makeup look!
I'm very fair skinned (red tint) and tried a few other "tinted moisturizers" that I hated. I live in Florida and chose this because of the high SPF. I've never worn foundation, as I like to be as natural as possible, And this product is exactly what it says it is.
The tint is quite visible on my fair skin, so I'm sure to go into my hairline and a bit below my chin as well. I got three compliments the first day of how nice my skin looked - it evens out complexion and leaves you with a glow.
I first spray my face with Mario Budesdco rose water then use a pearl size of the origins product. I find it is a bit thick and I don't want to pull my skin by rubbing it in too hard, so the rose water helps for ease of application. It appears sunscreeny until it absorbs, then I continue with my bronzer which mattes it out a bit.
Love love love!
Most Helpful Critical Review not what C&C was
I went to an actual Origins store to replace the C&C tinted face cream. Well Origins did it again, discontinued another product that I love. OK to I bought the GinZing as a replacement. It is ok but it is too thick and my face feels oily at the end of the day. the C&C lotion was awesome and did not feel like that. I would only recommend this product if you have dry skin. Not a fan. Now I have to go out and search for new tinted lotion since I do not wear makeup. Not too happy.
Reviewed by 466 customers Not what I expected
AmandaS29 from Rancho Cucamonga, CA
I selected this as my free product with purchase and it just isn't what I expected. The formula is thick and smells more like a sunblock than it does a moisturizer. I've had other Origins branded moisturizers with a SPF and those have felt smooth-creamy and left my face feeling soft. This leaves my face feeling a bit sticky even though I try putting on a light layer. I wish I could trade this for the potted moisturizer. I gave 3 stars because I just have begun using it and have hope that it will do the job of moisturizing my face.
Not good for fair skinned with light eyebrows
Judie E from Mogadore, Oh
I want to love this. I used Origns for over 25 years and this is the first product I'm not thrilled with. It comes off on my mask first of all. Like a lot. I have short hair that is light in color, if this gets in my sideburn area, orange. If it touches my eyebrows that are light, orange. Please bring back my cc cream.
Beautiful product but not fair skin friendly
Magnet from Kentucky
This left my skin feeling great, dewy, and and smelled nice. I'm sure I would LOVE this product if it didn't leave my skin looking a bit orange. When I tried it on in store it matched by skin but apparently it oxidizes throughout the day. It also probably would not work for darker skin tones. Try this product only if you are light to medium skin
Ive only used it twice
Ale from San Diego
I've only used it twice and i can say i love this! Ive been really into the no makeup makeup look and i was looking for a tinted moisturizer with spf and i'm sooo glad i picked this up! I have combination skin and this makes my skin look healthy and dewy.
Not fair skin friendly
BRV from Virginia
For me, this just looked very orange. Tried using it after I did my self tanning routine and it still didn't look quite right. It is hydrating, and I like the GinZing range from Origins. Have to appreciate that this has such a high SPF ☀️ so you'll be protected from sun damage when wearing this. Has very sheer coverage. Ended up giving this to my mom who has a deeper complexion that me. She loves it! So I'm glad the bottle didn't go to waste.
Not For Me
Helen53 from Sacramento, CA
Tried a very small amount when I received this and really did not enjoy the greasy, heavy feeling of this moisturizer. It also did not smell as nice as the other GinZing products. Couldn't return due to having this for way too long, but definitely would not recommend if you are sensitive to heavy moisturizers.
I LOVE THIS PRODUCT
Acb234 from Maryland
This moisturizer I cannot live without and is my absolute favorite product ever. It makes my skin so dewy and hydrated. The smell is great too but not overpowering. I love how it protects my skin from the sun. I have medium tan skin and the color matches my skin tone pretty well even in the winter it gives me a nice color.
I would buy this and share it with my girls
Aunt Angie's Mountain Living from TRUCKEE,Ca
Best products are the ones shared by those who love them. This is one of those.
Blurs it all!
J from New Jersey
Not super tinted but helps to hide redness and scarring
This is my go to moisturizer with SPF, the tint is light
Katrina from Modesto CA
I use this instead of makeup.
Great 3-in-1 product
lindsayann from Florida
I've been using this for about a year now. I had been using the Cicapair Tiger Grass Color Correcting Treatment for a while, since I have a bit of redness in my skin. It took this Ginzing moisturizer a little while to grow on me, but now I love it and actually prefer it over the Cicapair. This one is much lighter on my skin, gives me a fresh and dewy look, does a decent job of evening out my skin tone, and doesn't clog my pores in the heat and humidity. The only improvement for me personally would be if it could do just a smidge more to even out my redness, but if it messed with the consistency of it then it definitely wouldn't be worth it. *Worth noting - I'm fairly light-skinned Caucasian, and at my palest this can sometimes be a hair too dark on me. It has enough pigmentation to it that I also can't imagine how anyone with a skin tone much darker than mine could wear this, which is really unfortunate and definitely something Origins should figure out a solution to, as this really is a great product.
Great moisturizer with spf!
kms from Oklahoma
This is a great product! It's tinted perfectly for my skintone so I don't have to wear any face makeup, and my skin is protected from uv rays like my dermatologist wants. Now that being said, it probably won't match everyone's skintone.
Verna from CA
The color is too dark. My skin looks dull after I applied it on. Won't recommend it to anyone with normal skin tone.
Chris77 from Northampton, MA
I have acne-prone skin and most products break me out so I typically avoid putting anything on it. But, last year I had melanoma so I've really had to get serious about wearing sunscreen. I ordered this, ready for it to break me out, but it's amazing! This makes my skin look flawless, it's lightweight AND I know that my face is protected from the sun. Great product! Thank you!
LOVE this product!
Liz from Texas
I received this product as part of a promo, and loved it! It provides sun protection, but not greasy like most the products on the market. The tint makes my skin glow and the product makes my skin look and feel fresh. This will be a regular purchase!
Not recommended for African American skin!
denise from Dallas, TX
I was so excited to try this product. I've been wanting to purchase for months after seeing all of the great reviews. After trying for the first time, I found that it made my skin look like I tried the wrong color foundation - the color was way off. There was no hydrated, dewy look as others have mentioned. It made my skin look like there was a grayish tint to it, and I just used a pea sized amount. I am a medium toned African American woman and love all Origins products, but this one is a miss.
Liz from New York, NY
I bought this on a whim a year ago and I can't believe how glowy and even it makes my skin look! I put it on every morning after my skincare routine and will use a little concealer for dark spots, but otherwise I don't need any other foundation - and I have dark spots/acne scars! It looks like I'm not wearing any make up and just have really good skin. It's also my first time wearing a daily SPF and it's made a huge difference. Highly highly recommend this product. Is there a best origins product for fading dark spots, not just blurring them?
Great tinted moisturizer
redsteph19 from Newberg, OR
This did not make my skin greasy. It has almost a mineraly finish so to me that's good because my skin is oily. It was natural looking. I didn't feel like it was energy-boosted but it has a mild nice scent. I would definitely buy this again.
Amanda from Portland Oregon
This was way to dark for those who have fair skin. Unable to use couldn't blend the color out.
Deborah from Maryland
I used to use a 50SPF Philosophy product until they stopped making it. I searched and searched and am so happy with this SPF product. Origins, please don't stop making this! It goes on easily and absorbs well like a good moisturizer. The SPF 40 is critical for me to avoid more dark spots and the tint is an added bonus. I don't notice the tint until I wash my face at night and see in. LOVE IT!!!!
LOVE LOVE LOVE. Perfect for everyday.
Lex from Iowa
I did not wear makeup very often at all before this product, but when I went to law school, I felt like I should be a little more professional and look more put together day-to-day. My face is oily in the T-zone, but flaky on my cheeks and chin and so it is really hard for me to find a foundation that doesn't make me oily or make my skin look more flaky. This is the perfect compromise for me! It's light enough that it is not oily, but moisturizing enough that my skin doesn't flake. It also is super easy to put on and is super buildable, so it's perfect for the days that I just want to throw it on like a moisturizer, but also perfect for when I want to add some concealer and face powder. I've even used it as a foundation and it looks great.
Use instead of foundation
SGW from Prosper, TX
I love to use this product instead of foundation. For me, it does a great job of evening out my skin irregularities without having to wear foundation. It's light, moisturizing, feels great!
Rockinthatmombod from Boston, Ma
Since quarantine, I've been looking for ways to simplify my makeup routine. I have been trying tinted moisturizers and have found it difficult to find the right shade for my skin. I was skeptical about this one, but it really is quit lovely on. It uses your ph levels to form your perfect shade. It provides a nice glow to your skin.
I apply in the morning after washing my face and then walk away for a bit and have some coffee. Then I go back and finish my makeup. I still use concealer under my eyes and around my nose to cover my dark circles and redness. I was worried it the concealed areas would stand out, but they do not.
Giving 4 stars not 5 because this isn't as moisturizing as I would like it to be.
Great for covering Rosacea!
Stacy❤️ from NJ
I finally found my favorite product to cover my rosacea!! Your tinted sunscreen is so light and does not cake on the irritated area on my face.
Thanks you for this great multi-purpose moisturizer!!
Gives the best glow
Alex from New York
Have sworn by this for years. Im not one to write reviews, but this is my holy grail. Everytime I use this on a client, (young or mature skin) I always get asked about it because they are shocked at how blurred, and perfected their skin tone is after. Highly recommend!! Just not too suitable for a true oily skin but all other skin types will work great with this.
