Review: Origins "VitaZing SPF 15 Moisturizer"

Rating: 8 out of 10
Skin Type: Any
Me: At first, I just thought this was a moisturizer with luminosity so your skin glows. (Advertised to make your skin look energized.) After trying it out  and bringing it home, I noticed that there was a tint to it! I think this is really close to a BB Cream, not just a tinted moisturizer because of its added skin benefits. The tint that it gives is actually a little bit darker than your normal no. 23 for BB Cream. Plus, it's versatile so if you have tan skin, this is great too! For me, I mix it with a moisturizer and sunscreen so the tint isn't as dark. Problem solved <3
Repurchase: No... It's great, but it's not something that I must have.
How to: Just apply this in the morning as a moisturizer for an energized glow!
Price: $35... Quite on the pricey side considering how small it is! Since I mix it with moisturizer, it will probably take me a long time to finish this tube. Even with it's amazing benefits, I still think it's a little pricey.  
Quality: It's a really great moisturizer because it's not oily yet moisturizing and light. I think my skin does look energized because there's this glow to it. Even my friend said it when I wore this, "We were up at the same time, why does your skin glow?" That really made my day :)
Smell: It has a scent of mangosteen; like a leafy citrus smell. Kinda also smells like baby lotion with a mix of a leafy tropical smell. Not bad, not good, eh...
Texture: When applied, it's really smooth and moisturizing. I really love the texture because it's so easy to blend and it sinks into your skin very fast.  
Color: It's a little darker than no. 23 of usual BB creams, but for the summer, it's great for that healthy glow!
Packaging: It's a small, squeeze tube bottle that keeps the product inside sanitary. I love the colors they use, it's so refreshing and simple! Inside however, the tip is flat, so it's a little hard to control how much product you're squeezing out. Either way, I still love how small, simple, and color-appropriate the tube is. ^_^ 
Amount: 1.7 fl. oz. / 50 ml. 

Leave me a comment if you have any questions or just a comment ! <3
