Once again I’ll reiterate that I’m not even sure that I like eye cream but hey here we are so lets talk. As a side note: I accidentally write ‘ice cream’ instead of ‘eye cream’ more often than I’d like to admit, but that’s something for my therapist to figure out. I went on an Origins skin care shopping spree a while ago (before falling into a deep and desperate love affair with Paula’s Choice), and this was the eye cream that I picked up to use alongside the products that I purchased. Basically an eye cream needs to do two things for me to think it’s of any benefit; moisturise the skin under my eyes without leaving a greasy residue, and eradicate all under-eye wrinkles and make me look sixteen again OVERNIGHT. Two extremely realistic expectations of a skin care product. So far, this
ice cream eye cream manages to tick the first box, and although it hasn’t magically wiped away the lines under my eyes patience is a virtue and I have high hopes for the future. It contains caffeine, ginseng, magnolia extract and natural optic brighteners to, “rapidly wake up, refresh and restore radiance to tired eyes”. As I’ve looked like I’m living off of 2 hours sleep every day since birth, I am yet to see any real radiance restoration around my eye area. Despite this, I quite enjoy using this eye cream and will continue to do so until this little jar runs out. Origins GinZing Refreshing Eye Cream retails for $45 AUD and is available for purchase from Kit Cosmetics.
