Origins GinZing Refreshing Eye Cream Review

I received a little sample of the Origins GinZing Refreshing Eye Cream from my Sephora perk points and I’ve used it for a month now.

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.
