Combat puffy eyes and dark circles with ORIGINS GinZing™ Refreshing Eye Cream

ORIGINS

Birchbox Breakdown

So you got a little (over) excited at last night’s karaoke bash and belted out Fun’s hit tune “We Are Young” again and again, late into the night. Come morning, you’re neither looking so young nor feeling so fun. Thankfully, this brightening, botanical-packed moisturizer deflates puffiness and boosts hydration for an instant pick-me-up.

How it Works

Caffeine-rich coffee bean extracts and ginseng rev up circulation for immediately perkier complexions, while vitamin B fortifies skin against environmental damage. Magnolia bark fades dark spots and hyperpigmentation and light-diffusing minerals give skin a luminous finish. It’s also oil-free, making it great for all skin types.

How to Use

Every morning and evening, apply a nickel-sized amount to clean skin.

Great for oilier skin-types

This is quite possibly the best-smelling skincare product I've ever used! I have to wake up at 5 a.m. to get ready for work, and the citrus smell of this definitely perks me up in the morning. This moisturizer goes on light and absorbs very quickly, allowing you to put on makeup right away. Unfortunately, it just wasn't moisturizing enough for me. I finished my bottle, but won't be repurchasing. I will miss the smell though!

Great product!

I have been using this for about a month everyday and if I put it on at least ten minutes before I apply my make up I can really tell a difference. It makes my eyes look more open and wider and does help with the dark circles. I am so glad I got it!

The best

This is the best moisturizer I have used. The smell is incredible and the gel consistency is best for my oily skin.

Lightweight and energizing
Purchased

This was one the first products I received in a birchbox and purchased in full size, and it's probably my favorite so far. Typically I only pay $10-$15 for my moisturizers, but this one was totally worth the additional splurge. Goes on thin and doesn't feel heavy. Genuinely feel my skin perk up when I apply! Fantastic scent

Awesome moisturizer, doesn't 'wake-up' skin

This moisturizer is the best! I'd give it a 4.83 if I could. It's light and smells nice and doesn't make me break out, which is a huge plus. It doesn't really de puff, which is the ONLY reason I didn't give it a 5, but with the comparatively low price, treat yourself with a nice eye cream and you're set to go.

Great Moisturizer
Purchased

This is a great moisturizer. Not too oily and just perfect for my combination skin. Has a good smell and doesn't feel heavy on the face.

Great for Summer, Not so much for Winter

I do like that it's light, almost like a serum, absorbs quickly and does not leave a sticky residue on my face. However it's definitely not as moisturizing as I'd like in the winter. I use this for the summer when my skin isn't as dry. But it does leave my skin nice and smooth :)

Instant pick-me-up Yes, All-day-long No
Purchased

I love the smell of this stuff and how it makes my skin feel for the first hour after I put it on (I have what I consider to be fairly dry skin, so I like to moisturize a lot, but I can't stand anything heavy or oily on my face). However, after about an hour, I feel like my skin is a little dry and tight again. It definitely has that "Instant Pick Me Up" effect, but it doesn't last all day and it's a little pricey compared to other moisturizers I've used and liked.

I've had better
Purchased

For the cost of this product I expected something different. It is not as smooth of an application and seems to leave a sticky texture on your skin. I also feel like a look a little shiny too. Once I apply my usual make up routine after using this it seems to look fine, but I don't think I'll purchase this one again.
