I really did not expect to find one at all to be honest, never mind one which is so similar! I saw it mentioned on Behind These Closed Eyes' blog, and knew I had to go out and try this ASAP! The product is Glow Job (oooh err!) by Soap & Glory.
Price: VitaZing comes in at £26, however I used to buy it with my staff discount so got it for £22.10 (it used to be £25, and my staff discount used to be 20% so would get it for £20, booo!) and Glow Job is £9.
Application: You only need a pea sized amount for both of these creams, any more than that and you can end up with streaky and uneven coverage. VitaZing is easier to apply in that you just rub it into you skin and it changes colour - actual voodoo magic - whereas Glow Job contains bronzing balls which burst to release colour. So for this one you need to apply it to your fingers then rub them together to burst all the balls (lol...) and mix in the bronzeness before putting it onto your face. You do not want to just rub this straight on, you will end up with the beads bursting all over the place and it will be hard to make it even after that!
Appearance/Scent: VitaZing is a beigey colour with tiny dark specks, and Glow Job is just pale white colour until the beads are burst and mixed in when it turns to a more golden tan colour. Personally I prefer the smell of VitaZing, it is a fresher fruity smell where as Glow Job is sweeter, reminds me of something but I can't quite think what...
Packaging: I prefer VitaZing's packaging for this one as it's a flip lid so much easier when you're in a rush in the morning! Glow Job is just a twist on lid which can be awkward at times. However, every morning when I go to use it VitaZing has a gooey, congealed bit at the nozzle which I need to wipe off before using which is really annoying! I'm sure this isn't really to do with packaging but just thought I'd throw it in there!
So here are some really awkward pictures of my face!

VitaZing: I prefer the application and smell of this but it is no longer cruelty free in my eyes and also has quite a hefty price tag!
Glow Job: Love the price, it's also more accessible as it's available from Boots rather than an Origins counter. It does have a more greasy feel to the cream which sank into my face however it left more of a residue on my hands. It also doesn't contain SPF which is a bit annoying, however it means you can wear it for occasions where there will be photos taken and it won't make your face look shiny!
So to be honest I'd say they are quite interchangeable! Except Glow Job is almost a 3rd of the price and it is most importantly cruelty free!
