With all the late nights pulling through assignments, investing in an eye cream is definitely needed! After hearing my friend rave about the Origins GinZing Eye Cream and also checking out online reviews, I finally gotten it as my first ever eye cream! Its purpose is to brighten the eye area and also make it less puffy!
When I used it for the first time, I really love it as it makes the puffy areas under my eyes go away. Even though I get less than 8 hours of sleep, my eyes felt more awake after patting it around the eye area...which must be due to the caffeine content. The texture is light and easily absorbed. Plus, it has some kind of highlight/tint to make the eyes look brighter and provide a sheer coverage over the dark circles.
But after using it for a long run, twice a day for about 1 month, oil seeds start to appear around my eye area. Oh well, this eye cream is too rich for me. I started cutting down the usage to once a day and then once in 2 days but it didn't help much so I decided to stop using it after a while. I only use it when I need to get rid of the puffiness or when my eyes is still feeling sleepy x) It also didn't help much with my eyebags since I'm practically born with eye bags (it's true...)
Overall, this eye cream lived up its expectation for it's depuff and refreshing purpose. Other than that, I didn't notice much change on my dark circles. I guess it only works when you apply it due to the brightening tint. Bought it for about RM140 if I am not mistaken.
