Is The Garnier Skin Miracle, A Dupe For Origins Vitazing?

As the weather warms up it's also time to give our complexion a bit of TLC, ready for summer. During winter I embraced my pale skin, but now that the sun's shining I think I need to give my skin a bit of a glow.

 For me it's a bit early to pull out the fake tan, I wanted to start slowly, so a moisturiser that adds a tint of colour but that washes off at the end of the day was perfect. The Origins Vitazing would be my first port of call but recently Garnier brought out their own cheaper alternative and I wanted to see how they compare, who knows we might have a dupe on our hands, lets find out.

The first thing I notice is that the Origins one has more of a grey undertone while the Garnier one is white. They both have the same consistency, a nice light cream that doesn't feel greasy on the skin.

Colour wise is where there's a slight difference, the Origins Vitazing again leans more towards grey, while the Garnier one has more of an orange tone. I'm going to be honest, when I was comparing them on my hand I thought the Garnier version was not going to work with my skintone, it looked a bit too orange. Luckily I was pleasantly surprised, when it's rubbed into the skin the orange tinge disappears.

Here it is on my skin, beware you're about to see my skin sans make up with morning bed hair, I did warn you haha.

Holy moly ladies I think we may have a dupe, I've only put it on my cheeks in the above picture that's why it looks a little patchy but I just wanted to see the difference in colour. To me they look identical! They don't give much coverage so I like to use them to just give my skin a little glow before foundation, or just to add a bit of colour on a no make up day. The Garnier one comes with exactly the same amount of product, for less than half the price of the Origins version.

If you were thinking about buying the Origins Vitazing I would definitely head to your nearest Boot's or Superdrug and save yourselves a few pennies.

Have you tried the Garnier Skin Miracle? What do you think?

    1. They have really impressed me lately, they could well be the "it" drugstore skincare brand :)

  3. Oh how interesting! I thought these were both like face creams and didn't realize they were tanning/tinted products! I think they look very natural even on your super pale complexion and you look gorgeous! I love your eyes and eyebrows, so big and bold and pretty! I'm not a fake tan person as I tan very easily! Recently a trip to thailand has got me 3 shades darker on the body and a tad bit on the face so I've got a tan that's going to last for about 6 months!
