GinZing Energy-Boosting Gel Moisturizer

Very average moisturizer, it did not work very well for my skin because it didn't hydrate it enough. Also, I didn't notice any boost/energy effects. But the worst about this moisturizer is the finishing. It is very hard to put any makeup/foundation no the top of this, because it cakes.. It was my first experience with Origins, I had great expectations but it was one of the worst moisturizers I bought lately.

MODERN FRICTION Cleansing Stick With Exfoliating White & Purple Rice

I purchased this on sale for around $10, which is a fantastic price (retail is $28?) and it is definitely worth $10. But not $28! The only reason I bought this is travel purposes, so that I can include this as a second cleanser in a carry on bag. My first love cleanser-wise is Cetaphil, which will definitely be in my Dopp kit. This formula is so much more than I expected from a stick! It leaves my skin very clean and so soft. There are little chunks in it but they’re not scratchy. There’s no lingering film or scent. I do pat on moisturizer immediately, because I fear it could be drying, and this is the reason why: The directions say to apply to dry face. I have read in other reviews that applying to damp skin is helpful but that it tends to gunk up the container, etc. In order to get any product to lay on/stick to the face, the user really needs to massage it in (to warm it up I believe), and then it tends to leave clumps. This in itself is not awful, because it lathers you very nicely once water is added. However the clumping can result in having too much cleanser to wash off - and waste. I have a feeling this is being discontinued; I would purchase again if it is ever available for under $12...

Clear Improvement Active Charcoal Mask

This is a decent mask. I have very oily skin and tend to have some acne. I never really noticed a a big difference in my pores being clearer or my skin being less oily, but my skin did always look great after using it - bright and super soft. I would have liked to have seen actual unclogging of pores, but I still got blackheads and whiteheads, even the day after use. Still, I would buy it again for the way my skin looked after. It's also reasonably priced, especially for the amount of product you get.
