GinZing Energy-Boosting Tinted Moisturizer SPF 40

This is amazing. When I first tried it a few years ago I didn't like, couldn't figure out what was good about it and thought it was gimmicky. Well in the past couple of months I found a sample my daughter had and she shared it with me. LOVE it now. You know how you hear and see the "glow" description in so many skin care and makeup products? THIS. THIS is the one. It does give you a glow. And it adds absolutely NO texture to my mature skin. I have fair skin. Not ivory, but more of a fair/medium (MAC N3) and this product gives such a nice, healthy, smooth look to the skin as it adds some color. I apply this after my skin care products in the morning. Takes about 10 seconds, it seems, for the subtle color to set in. I can definitely tell this is tinted, although out of the tube it's a whiteish-gray color. But it gives you some color and evens out skin tone. Usually I just use this as my "foundation". Sometimes tho I'll add a little MAC Face & Body over it, or one of my foundation serums. It all looks good and honestly, this Origins alone really does the trick. If you want a healthy look without any type of orange tint, I highly recommend buying a sample off eBay or wherever. And the SPF is a huge bonus! You don't need too much - I'd suggest just a dollop - like the size of 2 peas - and that's all you need for face and neck. It's natural looking, smoothing for mature skin, and glowy. Not oily. Just a bit of a glow. A true glow. No glitter. No joke.

GinZing Refreshing Eye Cream

While it is a nice little hydrating eye cream, do not expect it to get rid of dark circles. Mine are hereditary and I know that they are here to stay, but usually using a nourishing eye cream can help keep under eye hydrated and nourished. This eye cream is good as part of your AM routine, as it moisturizes well and has glowing powder added to it. The latter will help mimic an appearance of a well-rested under eye, but only temporarily, which makes it ideal for makeup users. Concealers, corrector will glide on with ease, without getting dry throughout the day. But as far as skincare benefits go - you might want to look at other options. I do not get puffy, but I still like how this eye cream wakes my skin up in the morning. I just think there are more potent eye creams available, this one isn't the best I have tried, yet it is still nice. I share more information about this and other skincare gem in a separate review here (https://www.nayatilly.com/single-post/2020/03/19/Zen-Skincare-You-Need-To-Try). Hope it helps!!

Clear Improvement Active Charcoal Mask

Oftentimes I wonder if charcoal really pulls out toxins from the skin, or if this is essentially a glorified mud mask. I do have brighter, less oily skin (I have dry skin that gets oily in warmer weather) when I use this but I also feel that a cheaper, less expensive mask could work too.
