Origins GinZing

Oh how those who us who suffer from dark circles are constantly on the look for a new Eye Cream. 

Yes, me being a South Asian am also prone to hereditary dark circles and have tried loads, hopelessly. Yes I like them initially but don't love them enough to bother to apply them every single day and night. Some leave the skin too dry and some overtly oily. 

This particular one I have applied morning and night, every single freaking day since the past few weeks and if it can get a 20 something into the habit of applying eye cream regularly, the product has to be fantastic to use if not provide obvious results. 

Featuring Origins GinZing. It contains Caffeine and obviously Ginzing to reduce puffiness around the eyes and to increase blood flow. 

The product itself is a light reflecting shimmery beige-pink concoction which is so fluffy and light and a delight to apply which is its USP in my opinion.

The light reflecting 'optic natural brighteners' have a subtle brightening effect but obviously won't work exactly the same on extreme dark circles I suppose.

It absorbs really well into the skin leaving a moisturized and velvety effect and has not caused any bumps or whatsoever on my sensitive skin like other heavy eye creams have in the past.

A 15ml tub retails at £21 which isn't cheap but it contains a lot more product that you'd get in a usual squeezy tube. Plus if you are someone who is very picky when it comes to eye creams then you'll love this I promise and will find it worth the price tag.

I also slather it all over the lids as I feel it they get a bit dry due to my allergies this time of the year and this helps quite well with that too. I am not sure if it has any obvious results on the skin but I personally love using it and it does leave tired eyes nicely refreshed and awake which does the job for me. 

I know Origins is quite popular in the blogosphere. I'm quite a Origin virgin that way so do let me know your must-haves from the range ladies and I shall give them a try. Anything for the sake of the beauty blogging community you see :)

I've been curious about this product for some time now. I think I'll pick up a sample (hopefully I'll remember) next time I'm at Sephora.

Thanks for posting! <3
