Origins Ginzing Eye Cream

Hey all! As you've probably guessed by the title, the subject of today's post is Ginzing Eye Cream by Origins. I recently purchased this product because I wanted a hydrating eye cream that would reduce the appearance of my (scary) dark under eye circles. I've heard wonderful things about this from one of my favorite YouTubers Tanya Burr as  Pixi2Woo. If you haven't checked out her channel, you seriously should! Anyway, I stopped by the Origins counter and here's what they have to say about the product:

Refreshing eye cream to brighten and depuff

√ 86% brighter appearance
√ 80% reduction in puffiness

Late night? Long flight? Look tired all the time? Prepare to become one of the perky people! Nature's clinically-proven morning-after eye cream instantly reduces dark circles. Unsightly bags and puffiness virtually disappear. And Origins proprietary complex of Caffeine from Coffee bean, Panax Ginseng, Magnolia Extract and natural optic brighteners rapidly wakes up, refreshes and restores radiance to tired eyes.
  • Best for all skin types
Sounds good to me! It didn't take much convincing for me to bring one home...

Origins Ginzing Eye Cream
The eye cream comes in a small pot that you can either dip your finger into to get the product out. The consistency is pretty standard, but on the thicker side as far as the eye creams I've used go but its the color of the product that struck me.

Unblended on the left, blended on the right
As you can tell on my hand (I'm a NC35 in MAC terms), it's a very light peachy pink color with a silvery sheen to it- not quite a shimmer, definitely not glitter, and not really a frost either. When blended, the peachy pink color disappears and leaves behind a sheen that catches the light. While the cream is not pigmented or tinted, when applied to the eye area it does help to [temporarily] reduce the appearance of dark circles. What is also interesting is that when worn alone, the sheen remains for the whole day which makes me look a bit more awake and rejuvenated. When worn under makeup, the sheen is not visible but I do notice that foundation and concealer blends more easily and that the eye area doesn't look parched or dry. I don't have bags under my eyes but I do feel a very slight cooling sensation so it does feel nice when I apply it to my tired eyes in the morning.
I've used the product for about a week and really like it so far, but can't yet attest to the claims it makes for long term benefits. If anyone is interested, I'd be happy to do a progress check or an updated review of how Ginzing has worked for me.

Have you used Ginzing? Or do you use another eye cream that you absolutely love?
