I got a small sample tube of GinZing. Because of the low ratings here at MUA, it's a product I never would have purchased, but I'm always willing to try freebies. I'm surprised by how much I like this. It feels really cool and refreshing going on and does leave my eye area looking brighter (not so bright that I can forego concealer, mind you!) and concealer does apply nicely underneath it. I know this is a "mornings only" product and that is my one big concern about it - NO sun protection! The only area on my face where I have any visible sun damage is on the inner corners of both of my eyes and I realize that is the one area not protected by my glasses (which have sun filtering on them) or my sunglasses (ditto) so I'm now fairly fanatical about using an eye cream with sun protection. Clarins used to make a great one (discontinued); Ole Henriksen makes one I find too greasy for words so I use one from Shiseido in the daytime. I suppose I could layer that one over the GinZing but I do wish this product offered some sun protection, since it IS meant for day-time use. My other "criticism" is that I doubt this would be moisturizing enough for winter, but for use during the warmer weather, it is terrific.

UPDATE: I see, having used this for about a week or two, on and off, that it doesn't work great with concealer. It's like it "repels" whatever concealer I apply after putting this on. Considering that I can't leave the house concealer, that makes this eye cream a problem for me. I'm going to see how it works with mineral powder concealer (Bare Minerals Well Rested) to see if it's any better but this is one aspect that is really disappointing.

It is very rare that I feel like something is a waste of money. This product is one of those times. It does nothing at all, which I'm sort of used to with eye creams. The worst part is it makes my under eye skin drier!!!! My skin is combination . I'm in my early 30s. I usually love gel products for summer when my skin is more oily out in the heat. I feel like this sucks the moisture out of my skin. It made makeup go on horribly too since my skin was parched. Early 20s, go for it. But truly I don't recommend this at all if your looking for moisture .

Just an okay eye treatment. I noticed no refreshment, as it claims, although it was moisturizing. I like the Desert Essence much better and it's cheaper.

I honestly don't understand the hype for this product. It doesn't depuff, treat or moisturize my lids/undereyes at all. It is expensive and I would not purchase ever again.

I had a bad reaction after using La Roche-Posay Redermic C eye cream. It burns my eyes and i ended up with very dark circles, puffy eyes and eyebags that felt so sore.

One day at the mall, just so happened Origins was giving out free samples of the Ginzing Eye cream. Right there and then, i applied some under my eyes and above my lids and immediately my eyes didn't feel so sore and tired anymore!

The cream is easily absorbed and doesnt leave a greasy feel so its perfect to be applied in the mornings before makeup. My eyebags and dark circles are slightly reduced but still visible but then i've only used this for a few days. Will update again.
Update: This product is like a one hit wonder.. lol. Worked for the 1st few days and then felt warm/tingling when applied so i stopped using. Didn't reduce eyebags anyway, just took away the puffiness. And its waaay too expensive (SGD62) for such a small quantity (15ml).

I personally, quite like this eye cream. I find that it helps with minor puffiness and adds a sort of radiance to the eye area. The radiance comes from subtle shimmer. You may become squeamish when you hear shimmer, but it's so fine that it just looks like a sheen to the skin and there's no way to actually distinguish it. I don't know if this actually lightens dark circles, but the light this brings to the eyes certainly makes it seem like it. Also, it makes the eyes look so awake, which is always a plus. I do find it helps with minor puffiness, but anymore than a little and it doesn't do much for it. I do have two problems with it, though. The packaging is not great as jars are unhygienic and also this is quite a liquidy formula so you must be quite careful. I would never take away points from the actual product for the packaging, though. Another is that it has the tendency to thicken significantly over time. I'm not sure if this affects the formula but it is gross and somehow gets very messy and gloopy. But all in all, this is a really nice eye cream if you want more awake looking eyes.

I have this cream for about six months. I wanted to love it but I don't.

My skin is rather dry and I am African American with dark skin. When I don't get enough sleep I totally get the dark circle look which is not good. I brought this hoping two things one it would keep my eyes moist and second I wanted that lovely kind of tingling feeling at least on my tired days. Initially I used it off an on then in past two weeks I decided to really give it a try.

Well for me I never quite got the zing I was hoping for and it did not do anything for the circles under my eyes. Even with using this stuff daily. Was it a waste I don't think so while I did not get what I wanted it acted as a basic eye cream which is fine but I think it was a little pricey, especially when one considers I get the exact same effects as when I use jojoba oil.

Gotta say, I was really surprised by how well this product worked on my tired, lined eyes. I received the sample in my Origins order and wasn't expecting much of anything when I tried it. Pleasant surprise to find that it works! My eyes looked noticeably refreshed and the lines were much more subtle looking. The lotion feels nice, light yet hydrating, without a heavy grease feeling. A little goes a long way. I will be ordering this once my sample runs out.

This was part of a set that I purchased. This cream appears to have a tint or shimmer to it giving under eyes the appearance of being more awake. It is hydrating but I haven't used many eye creams to compare it to. The only other eye cream I used was by Clinique and this one in my opinion is far superior.
