No time in the morning for anti-age serum, moisturizer, sunblock and foundation? Or more than one of them?! No, none of us has the time, but believe it or not, Origins‘ energizing moisturizer does all of the above and does it well. This magical formulation is really magic: out of the tube, it’s white; as you apply, it turns into whatever shade your complexion is to match for the perfect tone. I know what you’re thinking, and I said the same thing. But I tried it, and here’s the magical part (I sound like an infomercial, but I’m dead-serious!): when you wipe it off, with your Swissper or whatnot, it becomes a skin-toned foundation color.
I don’t take this lightly – no pun intended: I’m darker than my friend, who I tried this on with; we used tissues to wipe it clean and the colors of our tissues were remarkably differently. I then tried this moisturizer on my face and my hand (my hand is much darker) and believe it or not, it was perfect match for both of us.
VitaZing has mangosteen, a natural anti-oxidant (and super-yummy if you ever come across one), to perk you up, and while it doesn’t result in a full-coverage foundation look, the touch of color it gives evens out your complexion. The finish? Clean, not greasy, with a slight sheen and the summer glow you want. The ease is a total plus; the result is what convinced me. At Origins for $35.
