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.

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.

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.
Better than I thought!
AmberL11 from Virginia
I was a little nervous since I'm pale, but I need a product with high spf and preferably other benefits like evening skin tone. This guy is it! I feel protected, moisturized, and the tint is just right once you blend blend blend!
Love it love it....will buy al the time

Product minimizes pores.leave face smoothed with a tiny of color
Great product, but the color can get patchy!
Nikki from Chicago, IL
I received this as a mini trial size with another purchase, and loved it so much that I bought the full size! I have fair, combination skin and I love that this provides sun protection in combination with a bit of coverage. The color match isn't bad at all - it shows up a little darker than my skin tone, so definitely a must to blend down into the neck! It gives my skin a dewy glow (which I love), but might turn out to be a bit too dewy for those with oily skin. Overall a great product, but I gave only 4/5 stars because the color starts to get patchy and clump in certain areas after about 3-4 hours.
Does what it says, but doesn't work for my oily skin
Elena94 from Fort Worth, TX
I always research the products I purchase. The abundance of positive reviews made me purchase this on a whim, but I'm kinda disappointed. I have a combination (mostly oily though) skin and this made my face look very glossy (which I don't like). Since I'm also acne-prone, from the first use, this made me break out on my chin with very painful cystic acne that I haven't gotten in awhile. I'm wary of using it again. I'm giving it 3 stars though because the tint is nice and I enjoy how it feels on my skin/how it smells.
Annie from Glen Cove, NY
Moisturizing with light coverage. Great for me since I don't typically wear foundation. Also love that it smells great and has spf to protect my skin!
AmandaRN from Chicago
I just received this product. I have moderate acne, freckles, and dark spots now that I'm near 30. Was looking for a sunscreen with some coverage and WOW...this is it!
Sofia from Italy
I already had high expectations from the reviews but I have to say I was really surprised by how good this is! I hate using foundation and this product provides the right coverage (I just add some concealer on blemishes and undereye) with the plus of high solar protection. Good degree of moisture but probably not enough for someone with fairly dry skin like me, but a light moisturizer below will do!
Marissa from MA
Bought this and was hoping I'd love it with all the positive reviews it had, but sadly I don't. It's VERY tinted (I have European skin and even with a tan this is still too dark). It's very drying and has an orange hue to it. The bottle is also very small for the price - definitely just paying for the brand here. Only reason I gave it 2 stars is because 1. It has spf 40 which is high for a facial moisturizer and 2. It's not thick considering it has spf
Been using for years
Gab from New York
Actually gave up on foundation when I found this product. Now I only use foundation for fancy all night events. In the winter/paler months I'll use this mixed with a little of a CC cream or naked skin. In the summer I can use this alone with some concealer and go about my daily errands. It really makes you glow and matches the color of your skin perfectly. Has a nice consistency too like a thicker hydrating cream. I love the whole ginzing line!
Perfect for the Anti-Makeuper
Amanda from Virginia
Oh. My. WOW. This is amazing! I am not a makeup gal (I'm bad at it, don't like the maintenance, and can't avoid touching my face or blowing my nose), but I do like for my skin to be a consistent shade throughout my face. I have fairly clear skin, but my chin and cheeks get red. I use most of the skin calming products from Origins as part of my daily regiment, but some days are better than others. I swear, this moisturizer gives me a makeup look without actually applying layers of product. And my skin looks smooth, moisturized, and NATURAL. It's wonderful, easy, and quick. I have combo skin and use Plantscription 25 moisturizer and I think it would blend better with an oil-free moisturizer, but I still love it. It's also a sheer tint, so there isn't any concern about matching skin tones. If you're like me and want to look alive and awake without taking on a whole makeup routine, definitely give this a try.
Been using for over 10 years
Kelly from Rochester Hills
I will use this until the day I die...I love the "blurring" benefit as well as the minimal tint!!
Finally, exactly what I've been searching for

I have combination to oily skin and this moisturizer is everryyyythinggggg. I absolutely love it. Sheer coverage, great smell, sun protection and it's good for my skin. I love it! And it holds up in the Houston heat!
Replaced my whole makeup routine!!
jill from New York, NY
Im so happy I discovered this tinted moisturizer because it has replaced my entire moisturizer/foundation/SPF routine. It's so easy and makes my face bright, smooth and naturally beautiful. I prefer it to makeup now. I have some acne and it does surprisingly well at providing medium coverage over my spots. I find that my face is a little sheer right after I put it on, but after 5 min it settles into a more natural finish. It's not matte, but lightly sheer which looks very natural and nice. I'm absolutely obsessed and so excited to wear it everyday.
My absolute, must have product in my routine!
eliza from Colorado
I discovered this product probably 5 years ago and have never stopped using it. I have sensitive, dry, acne prone skin that is incredibly troublesome. This product pairs so very well.
It is gentle and doesn't clog my pores, the amount of actual coverage that comes from it is amazing (you really only need a very little bit), but my favorite part is that I don't have to worry about changing products throughout the year as the color matching on this product is unreal. It lasts for awhile. I probably purchase twice a year on an almost daily basis of use. I really appreciate the SPF factor to start my day and I can go out feeling confident that its also doing something to protect my skin. I need products that look and feel natural because I am not a very big makeup gal and this is that product!
I would buy it over, and over, and over, and over again! Orgins, please never discontinue this product because I'm not sure what I would do without it!
I love this product! Will definitely keep purchasing
laura from Dallas, TX
This is my new favorite Origins product! I have been using other Origins products for a while now, but I wanted a moisturizer with SPF. This is like magic! I put it on and immediately my face looks airbrushed! I have fair skin and don't usually use a lot of foundation as it is, but this moisturizer provides such full coverage and feels so light and breathable. I really can't say enough good things about it. It's perfect for when I don't feel like putting on makeup but I still want to look put together AND it protects my face from the sun. Love love love!

I love this moisturizer!

I love this moisturizer! It is light weight and feels fresh when you put it on. It has a citrus scent which is so nice to put on during the day time. Makeup wears nicely over the top.
My Favorite thing in my bag!
rosiesmom from Portland, Oregon
This is the best tinted moisturizer ever! I used to use CC cream and thought tinted moisturizer would be too sheer but this has awesome coverage and I love that it adapts to your own skin tone and you don't have to try and color match! I'm back today for my 3rd purchase!
