Origins GinZing Refreshing Eye Cream Review

Now on to my personal review of the Origins GinZing Refreshing eye cream.

I chose this as my perk point freebie from Sephora because I love Ginseng skin products and I love the smell of Ginseng skin products.  BUT I have NOT seen any results of improvement from using this other than the fact that I’m tricking my brain since I’m using an eye cream, that I’m doing something good for my skin.

When I wake up in the mornings, I do my normal routine of washing my face, then I apply this by dabbing a little under and around my eyes.  NO unpuffiness going on, on this face.  NO covering of the dark circles…. Same Ole, Same Ole.

The cream itself has tiny lil speckles of glimmer and that’s what is supposed to “Brighten” around your eyes, but again with the brain tricks…. It’s only an illusion.

The shelf life of this product is 6 months and that gets me wondering on the efficiency of the essential oils that are in this jar???

I do know that I wouldn’t purchase the full-sized 15 ml jar for $30.

This may work for some but I haven’t seen or felt that I would recommend this to any of my friends or anyone that I know.  But, that’s just me.

Have you tried Origins GinZing eye cream?  Tell me your results.


Fogless Beauty Shower Mirrors

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial. How many people have mirrors in their showers?

I never really thought about getting one until Cassani sent me one.

Once I saw it online, I knew it would be perfect for me to use while I use my Clarisonic in the shower.

I immediately put it in my shower once I took it out of the box.

  • 1 Stainless Steel Mirror Wall Mount
  • 1 Stainless Steel Shaving Razor Wall Mount
  • 1 Shatter-Proof Fogless Shower Mirror

I used the Stainless Steel Shaving Razor Wall Mount for my shower cap.

Simply place the stainless steel wall mounts where you want them in your shower, attach the shower mirror, shower cap or razor.

If you use your Clarisonic in the shower, then having this mirror would be great!
It doesn’t fog up with all the steam and you get to see that you’re cleaning your whole face.

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

Lumene Vitamin C+ Pure Radiance Night Cream Review

I received a good sized sample of the Lumene Vitamin C+ Pure Radiance Night Cream in my March New Beauty Test Tube.

Lumene Vitamin C+ Pure Radiance Night Cream

This is supposed to improve the look and feel of our skin while we get our beauty rest. It’s a hydrating, skin-brightening night cream.
It’s best for normal to dry skin and employs the detoxifying properties of Artic cloudberry nectar to help brighten and balance dull and uneven skin tone.
I have combination/oily skin, so I’ll see if it’ll do anything for me.
It has a light citrus scent to it.
I tried it out and the claims for it being for people with dry to normal skin is absolutely TRUE!
I have combination to oily and it was way to heavy for my skin.
I’m going to have to hand this down for one of my friends that have dry to normal skin.
It’s a shame because I hear great things about this brand.
The Struggle, for the combination to oily skinned women.
