Truly, I can’t wear it without someone telling me how well I look
I worry about Origins. One would imagine the almost 30-year-old plant-based range might be enjoying a purple patch currently, seeing as all the coolest skincare brands boast of their own natural credentials, but the trailblazing Origins counters seem to get smaller and their products overlooked. This one deserves attention and heaps of praise, though. It’s Ginzing SPF40 Energy Boosting Tinted Moisturiser (£30), and it is absolutely brilliant if, like me, you either can’t be bothered to apply foundation in the heat or prefer a fresher look at this time of year. I love it because, unlike most, it delivers completely on the moisturiser brief: I’ve been wearing it alone over serum and my dry skin has wanted for nothing. As unusually, its sun protection factor is high (most tinted moisturisers are SPF20 at best, and usually lower) and its sunny, glowy coverage is perfection itself. Truly, I can’t wear it without someone telling me how well I look (gratifying when you haven’t taken a proper holiday in years and naturally appear consumptive).
