Do you rarely leave the house without make-up on but are sometimes too lazy or do not always have time to apply foundation? Origins VitaZing SPF 15 Energy-Boosting Moisturizer is a tint-release moisturizer that provides quick coverage and moisture all-in-one.
I was looking for a light foundation that does not look cakey but still provides enough coverage to even out my skin tone. I also had a hard time finding a good moisturizer that did not end up looking oily under my foundation. I am a person who is very concerned about dangerous ingredients such as parabens in my beauty products. That is why I was so happy when I found the ultimate multi-tasker, Origins VitaZing Moisturizer!
The VitaZing Moisturizer is what is known as a tint-release moisturizer which means that it contains tiny spheres of pigment which almost magically adapts to your skin-tone, providing the perfect color to match your skin. It can be difficult sometimes to find a foundation which is the perfect tone for your skin, but the VitaZing looks so natural, it does look like you are wearing make-up at all! At the same time, it does provide coverage and evens out the skin-tone. I do not like to look over-done and prefer a natural look, so this worked out perfectly! It also has an SPF of 15 so that you do not have to use an extra sunscreen.
I have combination skin which means that it can be dry in some areas, but oily in the t-zone. VitaZing provides enough moisture that my skin is never too dry, but it is also not too heavy so I do not end up with a shiny face. However, since I have an oily t-zone I usually apply powder over the VitaZing in order to prevent any shine.
VitaZing contains anti-oxidants which are good for your skin, along with mangosteen which is supposed to make your skin more vibrant and healthy. My skin does seem to be healthy and I have not had any break-outs with this product. I cannot tell if my skin is more vibrant than before, but I know that anti-oxidants are supposed to be good for you. What I really like is that VitaZing is free from parabens, PABA, mineral oil, petroleum, paraffin, and is synthetic fragrance free. This is important to me because I have read a lot about the dangers associated with those ingredients. Origins is a cosmetics company which is dedicated to creating quality products without using unhealthy and unnatural ingredients.
The VitaZing also lasts forever. I have had the same tube for more than 6 months and I use it every day. It is the perfect solution for people who are on the go, travelling, or just lazy but still want a glowing, flawless look!
