Origins Ginzing Energy Boosting Moisturizer Review

Origins Ginzing Energy Boosting Moisturizer

Origins Ginzing Energy Boosting Moisturizer sounds like the perfect moisturizer for me today. You know the “I stayed up too late wasting my life away gaming” moisturizer that gives you back your glow because your sleep deprived and dehydrated from sitting at your desk all night?

I got a preview of The Last of Us and won’t admit to the amount of time I’ve spent on it so far. Hours of my life I’ll never get back. Excuse me while I call in this review and get back to the game.

No seriously, part of my skincare issues stem from the fact I am simply not getting enough sleep so I’m wondering if Origins Ginzing Energy Boosting Moisturizer can restore my glow. Plus did I mention it’s a gel moisturizer…score! Dontcha just love gel moisturizers for Summer? I can’t be alone here.

Sephora 8 HR Mattifying Moisturizer Review & Swatches

Sephora 8 HR Mattifying Moisturizer Sunscreen

Sephora 8 HR Mattifying Moisturizer SunScreen SPF 20 ($22) arrives at just the right time as my skin is starting to go a little combo. Although I have drier skin when the weather warms up my forehead starts to shine like a bright star and I get a fair bit of oily around my t-zone.

I decided now was a good time to try this because we’re SLOWLY seeing some good weather here in New York. Hell yesterday it was a whooping 90!

Tony Moly Intense Repair Live Snail Cream Review

Tony Moly Intense Repair Live Snail Cream Set

I’ve had Tony Moly Intense Repair Live Snail Cream in my stash a while now along with Tony Moly Intense Live Snail Eye Cream as well since they came as a set.

I believe Paris (My Women Stuff) either had a Holiday in Korea or somewhere else when she purchased these for me on request and it’s been quite a long time since she sent them to me so much so that I’m nearly done with the facial cream and have completely used up all the eye cream at this point.

I think perhaps they have been two of my first Snail Skincare products outside of Etude House’s snail moisturizer. Since that time I’ve tried a whole host of products with snail secretion including BB Creams, masks, sleeping packs, etc…etc….Snail is kinda an old trend at this point and Korea (and other Asian companies) are now moving on to venoms. Oh lawd…how does one keep up with all these skincare crazes?

Let’s take a look at Tony Moly’s version of Snail Cream and see how it holds up.
