    Origins Ginzing Refreshing Scrub Cleanser

    Have to say I was not a fan. After recently running out of my homemade pumpkin, spice, sugar, and Vitamin E scrub that a friend made for me, I decided to give this a go. First off, I knew that this product would have a very orangey smell, but some of the Origins Facial products that have an orange scent have a darker, sweeter almost CHOCOLATEY orange scent (the High Potency Night a mins to my morese, for example), so I was hoping it would be like that. It is not. This is an extremely bitter-smelling orange, which I can see how this adds to the extra feeling of 'zing" that this product gives the skin and is named for and how a chocolate orange scent might be too mellow and tame for that same effect. I was not a fan though. As far as the performance goes, it did polish the skin. Very well in fact but almost too well. The homemade scrub i used before worked on sugar, which is a humectant, meaning it draws moisture and helps to bind it in to the skin after the harsher, solid texture of the sugar itself scrubs away any dead skin blocking the pore. This coupled with the pumpkin puree (which is both a hydrator and something that works also like a mild exfoliating enzyme in a more "chemical"/acid/deeper skin layers kind of way), made that exfoliator very gentle and simultaneously effective. After the one time using the Ginzing however, my skin felt very polished but was also sore. Not overtly red (any more so than after a more trusted physical exfoliant would be used- my skin is very pale and shows temporary redness after scrubbing/physical exfoliation or even a good deep or double-cleansing very easily but it generally is easily soothed and goes away quickly), but even at that, this product made my skin sore. I do not like this and don;'t feel it could be a good sign. Also the coffee beans neither dissolve nor rinse away very well. Also the bitter orange smell doesn't go away easily either. It might be good for some but not for me. I couldn't say many positive things about it, so it's hard to recommend, but it never hurts to try. I got this in a kit with several other prodyucts that I wanted to try. The Vitazing eye cream seems a winner for me and the Original Skin Serum is quickly growing to be a trusted twice daily part of my skincare routine, but i did not like this at all.
