Let’s face it: the recommended eight hours of sleep we should all get every night is sometimes hard to come by. This lack of Zzzzs usually shows up all over our faces, particularly in puffy eyes with dark circles.
That’s where Origins steps in to provide relief with it’s GinZing Refreshing eye cream.
Claims: “GinZing™ Refreshing eye
cream brightens and de-puffs with nature’s clinically-proven morning-rescue eye cream that instantly reduces dark circles. Like a shot of espresso for tired eyes, this power-packed eye cream delivers both an instant impact and sustained benefits over time. GinZing™ Refreshing eye cream is formulated with
a cool, crème texture that invigorates and hydrates the eye area, helping unsightly bags and under-eye puffiness virtually disappear. Vibrancy is restored, leaving the delicate eye-area appear rested, even-toned and revitalized.”
Our take: We loved the smooth, fast-absorbing texture of this eye cream. It didn’t sting or burn in the least (which is hard to find in an eye cream), and didn’t leave any hint of greasy residue, making it great to wear under makeup. The skin around our eyes felt a light tingly sensation – the result of the caffeine – that helped a little with de-puffing (though we didn’t see a significant difference). Also, we didn’t notice much lightening of our dark circles, and resorted to our usual concealer.
Bottom line: We loved how smooth and tingly this product made our eyes feel, but didn’t experience a major visible difference in our eye puffiness or dark circles. Although it did brighten up our eye temporarily, perhaps more longterm use would produce better results.
