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.

I love the Ginseng line and was so excited to try this product, hoping that I would rely less on foundation as a result especially come the warmer months. But the tint is WAY too much if you are a fair skinned red head.
JenC from Mesa, AZ
I am enamored with this new product. I have a very red complexion, which is often difficult to cover. This product blends seamlessly, and gives me a nice radiant glow, without fading/wiping off if I blow my nose or wipe my face, like makeup does. The sunscreen is a bonus, as now I don't have to be as red on the golf course, and still have protection. It's not as concealing as makeup, but provides enough base coverage that when I do wear makeup, it's not as onerous.
Not to my liking.
Sammy from NYC
I received a full-sized tube of this moisturizer as part of a promotion. I wasn't thrilled about it as I am not into tinted creams but I thought I would try it. Off the bat, the smell was off-putting. The tint was ashen and it felt greasy. I tried not to accept this as a freebie as I knew I wouldn't like it. I am surprised that it got the rating it did. Perhaps they are giving away old tubes and mine is a fluke. I would never buy this product.
Hayls from Ohio
The reviews seemed to be very mixed on this product, as it is with most face products. So I'll just give my honest opinion. I hate wearing make up, I have combination skin ( dry and oily) and this works PERFECTLY for me. I have noticed that with this product I do not get acne like I would with concealer or foundation in the past. When you first put it on it does feels kind of heavy on the skin but after about 10 to 20 minutes it feels like I'm not wearing anything. I have rosacea and this does a really good job of covering my redness without making it worse. At the end of the day my face feels smooth and soft. I haven't seemed to have any of the problems that I've read in other reviews, but we are all different when it comes to our skin types. My skin is also light but not fair. Hope this helps!

I got a free sample of this product with my order and I really liked it. I plan on purchasing it very soon. This left my face feeling very refreshed and moisturized. I like the natural coverage it gave me. I just wish it came in other shades because it's a little light for me.
Loved this at first-
Leslie from Chicago metro area
I thought this was going to be a great product to replace foundation while wearing a mask. WRONG! It stains everything. I use white wash cloths so I can bleach them and when I did a load of whites, everything turned out beige, including a new white T shirt. I used a wash cloth to wash my face and then threw it in the bathtub while the water was running and it turned the bath water a rust color. I thought there was something wrong with my hot water tank but it was the tinted moisturizer. I really wanted this to be the perfect answer but I am really disappointed.
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!

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.
