I really like this eyecream for blasting away my dark circles! It has caffeine and ginseng to wakup your under eye area. I use this then my Caudalie eye cream to moisturize before makeup. This stuff works..and does not break me out or cause eye issues!

I got mine at Sephora for $30. It does not take alot of product for an application and you get a fair amount for the price.

Just for sanitary reasons I wish it came in a pump instead of a jar. I just don't like putting my hands in my creams. Especially when they go around my eyes!

I am not a fan of this item. The "instant brightening" effect that the marketing refers to is a pale pink pearl shimmer that forms the base of this cream. I only used this for a couple of days, so I cannot speak to long term benefits. The few days that I did use it, I was not impressed. The dryness under my eyes was still as pronounced as before and it made make-up application not as smooth (somewhat cakey). The brightening "effect" worked a little, but I feel like that was negated due to the dryness standing out and being highlighted. Save your money and find something nourishing with effective ingredients and not just gimmick fluff.

This is fantastic for brightening your eyes in the daytime because it contains some kind of micro shimmer. I absolutely adore it because it works and does everything it says it will. The price is a little off putting at first, but a 15ml pot lasted me a whole year so very much worth it.

I was blessed with the gift of immunity to dark circles, puffiness or anything like that but I thought I'd get a good eye cream to prevent all of the above or aging as well as a nice moisturiser.
This eye cream has exceeded my expectations dramatically! I've only owned this product a few days and my eyes are noticeably brighter and more awake which shows in my whole face. I'm so happy with this product; the packaging is lovely and you only need a tiny amount so it lasts. Well Worth the money, does everything promised.
Thank you origins!

Am I the only one who got zits around their eyes from this stuff?? When I first started using it, I loved it! It was very moisturizing for me and helped "depuff" my eyes. However, after 2 days of using it, I got a very painful pimple under my eyebrow (I apply eye cream from my under eye to my brows, idk if that's normal but that's what I do). At first I didn't think anything of it, but then a couple days later I had 5 really little zits all around both my eyes and then the one big one under my brow. I was like WTF is going on?? But then I remembered I just started using this eye cream and it was literally the only explanation for it happening because that's never happened to me before. Really disappointing but hopefully Sephora will let me return it since it's expensive.

Wanted to love but unfortunately hated. As a night owl and an insomniac, dark circles and undereye puffiness are a constant and somewhat extreme (though many can and do have it worse) struggle for me. I am only in my early to mid twenties so I don't need something chock full of retinoids either, and am easily irritated by most if not all products containing some form of retinol, but it never hurts to start thinking about preventative antiaging.

So I thought this would be perfect and also offering some under eye brightening/concealing effects at the same time. The brightening and concealing benefits (for my eyes) held true though not to the extent, I hoped. But sadly the product, even when not working with retinoids still stung and burned my eyes, and my eyes are not especially reactive or seem all that sensitive, but this hurt. I thought at first, it was the product actively working to smooth out the puffiness and really firm the eye area, which would be normal and acceptable and what I wanted the product to do, but, at least on me, the sensation never went away, and never lessened in severity, as I thought it might when my skin or my pain tolerance got stronger and more used to the product (which is often the case with more invasive masks or antiaging products or more intensive chemical exfolants), but I used it for two weeks one or twice a day and I never did get used to it. And the residual dryness left around my area was not good and my skin often gets super dry when it also is very sensitive (either that or it breaks out, but in the dry under eye area, IDK if there are enough oil glands to usually even potentially cause a breakout). So all bad signs, so I sadly cannot really recommend, though, especially with things like skincare and fragrance (people like/dislike and can have different tolerances and needs) it's all subjective, so it is worth a try especially for reasonably priced non intensive eye cream as a starter eye cream for those who want something basic or if you are younger and are just thinking about now caring for the undereye, but I cannot continue to use on myself and obviously would not repurchase.

I got a sample of this, and didn't like it. It has this shimmery effect that sits on top of your orbital bone, and the actual formula didn't really sink into my skin. Also, when you put concealer on top of it, it just becomes a clumpy mess. This definitely didn't work for me.

I've been using this for about 3 weeks now and have seen no difference in dark circles or puffiness. I don't suffer from terrible dark circles so there wasn't much to improve on, but I saw zero change. I do have puffiness, however, and this was not alleviated. I gave it 2 lippies because it did a good job at hydrating my eyes- I have really dry eyes that can get flakey when I add primers and shadows on top. This prevented that dryness, but because that is the only benefit I noticed, the price is really outrageous.

Another downside is its texture. As a morning eye cream, I expected it to absorb quickly and leave my under eyes hydrated, but not greasy. This left a strange, slightly tacky residue on my under eyes that did not play well with concealer. It made it crease (not terribly, but I usually don't get creasing) and it didn't blend into the skin well. It has a pearly finish and a slightly pink color, but I didn't notice any brightening or blurring effect- for reference my skin tone is NW20.

TL;DR: Good at hydrating, but does not live up to de-puffing and brightening claims. Doesn't sit well under makeup. Not terrible, but not worth the money.

Right now my close to HG (but not quite) eye cream is Sunday Riley Start Over. That costs $85.00 and this costs $30.00 and for me, the effectiveness is very comparable. I was introduced to GinZing from a Sephora sample that came in a little squeeze tube, which I loved. The regular product comes in a tub, which is stupid and unhygienic. I have issues with dark circles and some bagginess, depending on how much I sleep. This product definitely helped with dark circles. It absorbed quickly and didn't mess up makeup I put on top of it. I would use it in the morning only and use a different product at night. I have always been wary about caffeine in eye creams because I read somewhere that it can damage the skin. I tried to look this up further and could't come up with anything, so I felt okay using this. I would buy this again if it came in better packaging. For the price, it is a fantastic product for me. I have a lot of other samples to use, so I'm trying those, but if I have a really bad dark circle morning, I use the GinZing right away.

I have the product in a squeeze tube (IMO better than a jar)
I'm mid-twenties, recently dealing with morning puffiness. This works excellent for that concern. I'm pleased!
Not overly moisturizing.
Not sure if works on darkness.
Wears well under makeup
