Why Swap To A Tinted Moisturiser For Summer?

Last season, your must-have skincare product might have been a nourishing night cream or a high-impact foundation. Now that summer’s arrived? There’s one multi-tasking treat that’s set to be your complexion’s new BFF – a tinted moisturiser! The one that we’re loving is hydrating, glow-boosting, and suits all skin types – plus a whole lot more. Read on to reveal what the product is and exactly why you need it in your beauty arsenal…


The ORIGINS Ginzing™ SPF 40 Energy-Boosting Tinted Moisturizer has one handy feature that sets it apart from other formulas that you might have tried – a Sheer Tint Release. When you first squeeze the product out of the tube, the lotion almost looks speckled. These little beads of colour release onto your skin as you blend it in and adapt to suit your skin tone. Meaning it’s a one-tint-suits-all moisturiser! Whilst the coverage won’t rival your winter foundation, it glides over discolouration and blemishes to even out your skin tone. Plus, it’s buildable so you can layer on as much or a little as you want.

There are two star ingredients that give the ORIGINS Ginzing™ SPF 40 Energy-Boosting Tinted Moisturizer its glow-boosting power – coffee beans and panax ginseng. We all know that coffee is great for waking us up in the morning but it’s got impressive benefits when added to your skincare too! It’s a natural antioxidant in the fight against ageing, helping to blur over fine lines and give your skin an 8-hours-of-sleep glow. While panax ginseng (panax translates as ‘all-healing’ in Greek’ is a natural brightener that restores radiance while soothing and hydrating skin.

Finally, but perhaps most importantly, one of our favourite things about the ORIGINS Ginzing™ SPF 40 Energy-Boosting Tinted Moisturizer is that it acts as your sun protection too! Yes, as well as all of the great stuff that we’ve already mentioned, it will actually help to protect your skin from harmful UV rays and consequent sun damage – one of the biggest causes of ageing skin. SPF needn’t be boring – including it in this tinted moisturiser helps to make it a fu part of your daily routine – and a crucial ingredient to prolonged healthy, happy skin!
