Rated 4.34 out of 5 stars
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.
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.
Probably the best vitamin c product I have ever used if not my favorite all time skin product. Such a bummer its so expensive. But it is great does everything it claims.

This serum left my face with a perfect dewey glow. It's perfect under makeup or on a bare face.
Jeans from Houston
Loved the smell, the absorption, and ease of application. This gives a slight cooling effect!

Liz from Rialto, CA
The smell is amazing! The serum makes my face glow! I use it when I don't have time for makeup, and it is worth every cent!
My skin is sensitive to all serum I have ever used.
But. This serum was the best no Irritation no burning my face. So far my sunburns has started fading. I Love this serum. Thank you DR Andrew. W.

I have very dry, sensitive skin with occasional breakouts. Affer using this serum for about 6 months and my skin has never looked better. It has cleared my dark spots, brightened my skin and prevents breakouts as I barely have pimples anymore. Would recommend to anyone looking for brighter, glowy skin.

So glad I selected this product for my Ipsy bag and did NOT read the negative reviews first like I normally do or I would have not selected it. I really like this product and will probably continue to purchase it in the future. As promised , it truly brightens my skin. My daughter noticed about 1 and a half weeks in. She asked what foundation I was using and I wasn't using any foundation, just serum and moisturizer. Now that's saying something folks. Might just be my skin, I'm 69 years old and have been a beach girl my entire life so if anything makes my skin glow I'm using it. For the record, I even use it around my entire eye area- shoot me - it works and doesn't bother my eyes one bit!

I was so excited to use this product an after a week of applying it I noticed a lot of acne an some cystic acne an knew it had to be from this product so please be aware that if you have sensitive skin don't buy because it's been over a year that my skin has looked this bad it's awful

I've used this product for years and have always loved it. It has multiple ingredients that usually only come in single serums; hyaluronic acid, vitamin C, caffeine, and plant oils to calm the skin. Meaning you don't have to have a complex regimen if you use this. My face is always hydrated, smooth, and glowing when I use this product. It also helps with some of the fine lines around my eyes. I forgot how wonderful it was till I switched to the Ordinary because someone recommended it. Sure The Ordinary was cheaper but I had to buy several bottles of serum to match what this one bottle can do. Also my skin was not near as brilliant and the serum would flake off with other products. When I switched back to Orgins Ginzing serum, I immediately remembered why I love it so much. The results are immediate. Also it doesn't flake off under other products because it absorbs very well. Everyone's skin is different but this is my favorite product and I will never abandone it again. Sometimes you have to lose something to realize how great it is, I guess.

I've been using origins products more religiously lately because I haven't had a negative experience yet. I experimented with this first to see if it works well, I use it twice a day now (as part of my morning and night routine), it definitely revitalizes my skin. I apply two pumps each time and lock it in with my regular moisturizer as well. I use it before I apply my makeup on as well as part of my pre-makeup routine.
Menchu from Florida
I had an allergic reaction with red itchy face with bumps. I used it once but initially I thought it must be with the food I ate or something. It took several days to clear with topical steroid. After a week or two, I used it again to try but I had itchy face and have red elevated bump, like a map; and I took Benadryl. Now for sure, I know it was from this serum. There's something in this product that makes me itchy. I have been using origin products for at least 8 yrs now with no reaction except at this time. I am throwing this, how I wish I can return and my money back. Please be cautious using this serum.

I love it I would recommend it I just wish it didn't cost so much ￼

I love this stuff. There is a noticeable glow with the first use
Julie H from Gilbert, AZ
I do not recommend this product. After just one application, within a day I noticed that my face was bumpy and I had breakouts (Prior to using this, I had not had any breakouts in years). It took 10 days for my skin to return to normal with no bumps. I do not typically have sensitive skin but some ingredient in this product is not compatible with me.
Emma from Boston
I had gotten a sample of this and adored it so much I bought the full version. I have dry to normal skin and this product adds the perfect touch. It makes my face feel so fresh after application. So many clean (and vegan) ingredients such as vitamin C and hyaluronic acid that make the skin glow and evens skin texture after just a couple uses. Looks beautiful under nautral makeup as well! Smells incredible too, there are essential oils added so if you dont like fragrances/have sensitive skin be aware and do a patch test before applying to face. I have been using the serum for the past month and my slightly textured skin has evened out completely and I have gotten many compliments on my "glowing complexion"
Stephanie from Pennsylvania
Origins is probably my favorite skincare brand and I've used various products from the line for years; however, have never experienced something like this before.
I noticed a slight tingling upon use which I read is normal. After this continued after a few days/week I couldn't take it anymore and stopped use altogether. Despite the fact I completely stopped using it, one spot of my face continued to grow more and more irritated and inflamed. It's been over a month now and I have an actual burn in that spot that will not go away! I'm using every remedy that I can research but nothing is working - I called the dermatologist but can't get in for another few months!
I have reached out to Origins regarding this and am awaiting a response (I hope). I pray this doesn't leave permanent damage.
heather from Austin
I was told to use this as a replacement for Original Skin Renewal Serum With Willowherb, which they discontinued. This isn't even close to similar and I now can't find any serum that helps with my oily skin like the one I used to use every single day for years. I used to use the Original Skin serum and my skin was instantly brighter and clear looking, while also mattifying. This Ginzing serum has caused my face to be super oily. I am very disappointed with this product and with Origins. I wish they wouldn't constantly discontinue our favorite products, it makes me never want to rely on Origins ever again, because as soon as I love something, they discontinue it. So disappointed.

Not at all irritating, helps moisturizer go on smoothly, smells wonderful. Did not seem to cause increased in pimples
Denver from Colorado
I received a sample of this in an Ulta order. A tiny sample. So tiny I am not sure what the point is of providing a sample of that size. I am able to deduce nothing from a single use other than I didn't have an allergic reaction. I am in no way compelled to buy the product since I cannot tell if it does anything it all after one use. Manufacturing samples of that size is worthless and not earth-friendly at all.
Reina from Des Moines, IA
This serum has a calming and soothing effect. Scent is pleasant. All time favorite for sure. I buy this again and again
estefania from sac, ca
i used it for about a week but it made my skin itchy in certain spots and made me break out a little, it does not work for my sensitive skin, to much perfume also
Bon Bon from Indiana
I love the Ginzing serum and eye cream products. My skin has never looked better and I am 60 years old. My complexion is smooth, firm and glowing since using this product.
DJ from Texas
I love this, it really helps with uneven skin tone, pores and texture on skin. Don't use right after exfoliating though.
Bella from New York
I love this product. It was the first vitamin c serum I've used, and I love it! The ingredients are nice, and I love how it feels on my skin. I have very sensitive skin, so I was scared to use serums like this. However, I'm glad that I was wrong. My skin instantly looks glowy and smoothes over the pores in my skin. The blurring of pores does not last all day, but if you were to use this under makeup, it would work great with any pore-filling primer. I use about 2 pumps for my entire face, while bringing some of the product down to my neck. I've already repurchased this product since I use it everyday! Definitely a staple in my morning skincare routine.
