Origins GinZing

As of late I have got back into the bad habit of not going to bed at a reasonable hour, and as a result, I've 'bagged' myself some lovely dark circles; not enough sleep. So in a bid to try and reduce these dark circles, I have been sampling the Origins GinZing.

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 helps to reduce the look of dark circles. Unsightly bags and puffiness seem less visible. 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.

Opthalmologist tested. Good for all skin types and all ages.


First impressions of the packaging I like a lot; usual signature Origins outer packaging which signifies its eco friendly attitude to the environment. The actual packaging of the product itself again I quite like; screw off top which makes getting to the product a lot easier, although perhaps if it had a pump action or was in a squeezable tube, it would make it easier to monitor just how much product is being used per use. The product is 15ml which isn't a lot considering if it's used on a day to day basis. But regardless of the small amount of product, it is quite a good eye cream.

First impressions of the product I absolutely love the colour! Now I know that colour shouldn't really be the main 'hum-dinger' in deciding whether a product is good or not, but the gorgeous cool salmon pink colour I felt is a great colour that will blend nicely with any skin tone and make up shades. Although not photographed so well, you can sort of see the reflective particles that are the main brightening properties in this eye cream. I did find there was a slight smell to the cream, but it's a smell that isn't strong or off putting, but does eventually fade once you work well with the product.



As you can see from the picture above, the eye cream has left a brightening sheen which on my skin tone looks a little odd to begin with, but ample blending it does eventually settle and look natural under the eyes. I found the eye cream absored quickly into the skin and is not greasy which is an instant hit with me, as I have oily/combination skin.

The RRP for the GinZing is £21.00 which I thought is a little on the pricey side at first, but it does perfom the duties it sets out to achieve. Ok this eye cream is not an ultimate instant fix, but it does make your tired eyes look a lot brighter and alive.

Would I purchase? Yes.

  2. I'm using that one since 3 weeks or so now, and I like it a lot. The only problem is that it burns a little sometimes. Other than that it brightens under my eyes, I like that, and hydrates pretty well - but unfortunately for me - not for long enough. I feel my eye area getting dry again pretty quickly. (I have super dry skin).
