Review & Swatches – Origins GinZing Eye Cream

As I mentioned in my Origins Haul post, I have fallen head-over-heels in love with their GinZing eye cream, so much so that I bought a full size pot the very same week my sample arrived. If that doesn’t say something, nothing will!

I must admit when it comes to eye creams I always start with the best of intentions but rarely follow through, often being put off by it irritating my eyes in one way or another. This little pot of wonder is in a league of it’s own though, brightening my dark circles without leaving my skin greasy or irritating my eyes.

After just over a week of religious use I’ve barely made a dip in the pot and this is only the 5ml sample! With this in mind I imagine the 15ml pot will easily last 6 months or more! I’ll let you know how long it takes me to finish the 5ml pot when I’m done.

In terms of consistency this is a fairly think, pearlescent cream. It appears to have a slight shimmer in the pot but this thankfully doesn’t translate to a glitter ball effect when on the skin, more a light, brightened effect.

Here it is swatched before blending…

And now blended…

I haven’t used it for long enough to comment on any long term effects, but can say that I can see a visible difference once I’ve applied it and hope in time I’ll see my dark circles reduced. For now though I’d say this is on it’s way to becoming my HG eye cream.

What’s your favourite eye cream for reducing dark circles?

  1. I love this! I’ve been using it for months now everyday and I couldn’t live without it. When I was on holiday I used this before going to the beach and it reduced my dark circles so much without needing to use makeup in the sweaty heat!
