Origins VitaZing Energy-Boosting Moisturizer

RATING (out of 5 stars): 2 stars

COST: $35 for 1.7 fl. oz.

THE SKINNY: Origins bills this as a multitasking moisturizer that hydrates skin, revs it up with a shot of antioxidant-rich mangosteen and has a slight tint to give you something akin to "the glow you get from a week's vacation." 

Mangosteen, Google says, is an exotic, island fruit, just in case you were wondering.

I wasn't a fan of this moisturizer, mostly because it made my pores look huge, something I can usually attribute to an odd color tint. I didn't look at all like I was glowing. I thought the tint made my skin look a little blah.

It does an adequate job as a moisturizer, but I wasn't impressed. And when moisturizer costs $35, I think I should be impressed.

KEEP OR TOSS: Toss.

CHECK IT OUT: VitaZing is SPF 15. Get more details on the Origins website.
