Most Helpful Positive Review Good when fresh
I liked this product when I initially had a small sample or maybe it was a small size from a variety gift set. When it is fresh, it is creamy, and I just pat it on lightly under my eye. It has sort of a luminous look to it on the skin, it lightens up your under eye area. I wear glasses, and I liked how it looks. I don't really have dark circles so I can't make any claims as to its qualities there. However, the downside is that since it is in a pot container, it has tended to dry out and become less creamy as time goes on... I use just little dabs under each eye, so the product lasts a while, but now it tends to cake and I hate to press and smear it around stretching on my tender under eye area. I think this product might work out better in a little tube or something so it isn't fully exposed to the air each morning before the entire product is consumed.
Most Helpful Critical Review Questionable
I think it's important for everyone to note why this product is out there - it's not meant to be a long-term treatment for eye area concerns, but a temporary fix for those special (or...common) days when results is all you need. With that philosophy in mind is how I tried this product. I really didnt' have to try it more than just a few times since, as mentioned, this product claims to give you results instantly, and there's no waiting period before results. I have dark circles, and some puffiness from over-working, over playing, and just generally not sleeping due to a hyper active lifestyle. On various occasions I tried this, and other than moisterize for a moment, it didn't do much. It did very, very lightly "brighten" the area, but nothing that anyone would notice. I noticed because I spent 5 minutes analyzing the difference of "before" and "after." For a product that claims "instant" results, there's very little instant effect. I say go for something more long term and fix the problem rather than poorly attempt to hide it. It gets 2 stars because it's gentle and lightly hydrating, and offers a very, VERY subtle effect. Perhaps it would work for someone who didn't really need all that much help. For the rest of us who want to treat/cover dark circles due to a very active, overworked, over-playful life style, this may not be the right choice.

This eye cream is very lightweight but powerful. I saw results with just a few uses and you can definitely feel the product working on the undereyes. This cream is infused with coffee to help the skin look awake, vibrant and ready for the day!
Refreshing eye cream
tinabow from Wellington, FL
I hadn't tried this brand of eye cream — and I've tried about a dozen at this point — but this is one I plan to keep in my rotation. While this doesn't double as a concealer like some other eye creams, it has a refreshing, tightening effect that makes under-eye bags look and feel lighter. The cream has a pleasant smell and is not too greasy or slimy like some other creams on the market. I applied this a few ways: with my pinky, patting it on; massaging on, as the packaging recommends; and with the tip of a blending sponge. I preferred the application with the sponge the best. I would recommend this for anyone looking for a little under-eye lift.

Jena from Tennessee
Is it the best for moisturizing, no. And did I see a permanent effect, no. But it did help with morning puffiness
Wakes Up Eyes

I already loved the GinZing line and this was no disappointment. Along with the face cream my face was zoom ready every day. No greasy feeling, no heaviness. Absorbed wonderfully. It really woke my eyes up.

I'm in love with this product it works wonders. It has helped me do much. I've definitely added this to my cart and buying more.
Amazing eye product!
Natalie07 from Winston Salem, North Carolina
I loved to test this eye moisturizer! It was very hydrating. I noticed a difference in my eye puffiness in the mornings after using this product.
Love the consistency!
Bran from Maryland
I love the consistency of this product. I didn't really notice a different under my eyes at all. I wouldn't recommend this.
Very Nice Product
Boldbeauty.andrea from PA, United States
I've been using this for a few weeks now and I've been very pleased with the product. The texture isn't too thick and it isn't heavily fragranced. It keeps my eye area looking awake. I've really enjoyed this!
Best to brighten and depuff
Dabmommy from Sacramento
I had tried this one time before in a very very small sample size and loved. Now I could see it being one I will continue to buy but this size is a very good size and it could last me a long time. The texture is of an eye cream, a little thicker than lotion but it absorbs very quickly and nice into the skin around my eyes. It has a light citrusy/sweet smell to it and a slight tint. This eye cream is meant to brighten and depuff the eyes I would strongly agree to that, while it may not be immediate I notice the change long term over a couple of uses. The pic I took is just a before and after in the same day, (top before bottom after) again not enough a major difference for one time but I do since I had received this over a week ago.
Good product! Good results!
Krysti K from Orlando, FL
I tried this product in the morning to help depict my eyes when I wake up. I have really small eyes so if they are puffy in the morning they look even smaller so this product is great to help open the look of my eyes before I get going for the day. I just use a small amount on my eyes you don't need a lot. It really helped with depuffing my eyes. I will continue to use this product and Recommend to others!
Ceci from Los Angeles
I received a complimentary Origins Ginzing Refreshing Eye Cream to Brighten and Depuff in exchange for my honest review. I've always wanted to try this brand and eye cream out, so I am actually very happy to have been chosen for this campaign.
Overall I do like this, would recommend to others, and would repurchase. It's probably not my favorite eye cream yet. BUT I feel that I didn not have enough time to actually test this product out for it to make a difference. Meaning I barely tested it for a week, and was asked to review it. It barely made a dent for my puffiness in that time frame.
In terms of brightening, then yes this works. I did notice that the light reflected off of my undelete wherever the product was applied. I suspect that it is because of a pearlescent ype of ingredient.
In terms of refreshing, I did feel that this product felt nice on my skin. I place this and my other skincare products in a mini, mini fridge to keep the products cold. So the cold eye cream is a pleasant wake up call. Panax Ginseng and Coffee Bean energize and revitalize.
I was reading the box containing the jar, and found out some cool information showing how Origins is trying to be eco friendly. The carton is made from 50% post-cosumer recycled fiber. Paperboard and carton manufactured using only wind or hydro power, both renewable energy resources.
Again, not bad and an affordable product. I'm sold.
Awakening moisturizing cream
on.the.rowe from Ohio
My favorite part is that the cream is lightly tinted. Perfect for brightening dark under eye circles. I apply before my makeup but it can also be used on its own on no makeup days. It feels refreshing & lightweight while complimenting my oily skin. And no strong scents which is another perk!
Drea from Bakersfield
Received this as a free sample and after using for a week I approve!!! Always have puffy eyes and this stuff is amazing! It did burn slightly but other than that lived the results!
disna from nc
pretty good stuff definitely depuffs the eyes
Hali from LA
Love this refreshing eye cream! Leaves my eyes feeling so cool and fresh, I can instantly tell a difference after applying. Bags and puffiness are gone just like that, highly recommend this for everyday use before applying makeup.
My dark circles aren't as dark & my eyes look more alive
JasMinnieM from Michigan
I was really excited when I tried this because I've had super dark circles all of my life. I love how good this felt underneath my eyes. A little goes a long way so you don't need much. I saw a change in my dark circles after about 5 or 6 days. I know they definitely look much brighter and I don't appear as sleepy or tired. Definitely one of the best eye creams I've ever tried. I'll definitely be buying more of it once I finish this container.

I really like this eye cream! It helps with the puffy, dark circles I have as a mom of a VERY active toddler.
Holy grail product
Liliya from Jersey
I am 25 and the first signs of aging are starting to set in around my eyes, darkening under my eyes because of my thin skin and it makes me so self consince but this product does amazing wonders writhin a week I seen change less dark circles and lines are way less noticeable , I don't even have to put makeup under anymore
AsToldByB.Nicole from Greenville, SC
This product claims to instantly brighten and debuff under eye dark circles to give the user a wide awake, refreshed look. I have been using this product for three weeks, and I have not experienced these benefits at all. However, there are a few other personal benefits that I enjoy. I previously used the murad refreshing eye cream. In comparison, I have found that this ginseng eye cream is light weight, and easier to massage into the skin. I have also noticed that it blends well with other moisturizers I put on my skin (so I feel that it would do great under makeup). My favorite thing about it is that it does not cause my eyes to water after applying. Overall, I think it is a decent eye cream. I do feel that the personal benefits I mentioned, can be found in other eye creams. I would not recommend it to anyone who wants to specifically experience the benefits that it advertises.
Brightening Eye Cream
Cindy M from Connecticut
The Origins Refreshing Eye cream gives your under eyes a quick pick me up in the morning. Due to it's brightening properties, my dark circles are less visible. I feel like the area is moisturized. I didn't see too much if a difference with getting rid of my under eye bags. I like that it didn't have a strong fragrance since it's for the eye area.
Mom 2 54321 from McAllen TX
My Dad died almost a week ago now and I got this in the mail to review. It came at the perfect time! I have used it everyday to help hide my sad, puffy, tired eyes. It is a thick, rich formula with barely any scent. It shines to help brighten up the under eye and cools them too.
Kristen1156 from Texas, United States
I'm a first timer using this Origins ginzing eye cream. The consistency is great not too watery or to thick it applies very well it only takes about 10-15 seconds to absorb in and I love that compared to others that seem like it never ends to apply. Now it does get a little tacky but that doesn't last long for me it was like a notification that I was done applying the product. It doesn't have a smell which is a plus! It's a benefit to have this product because i really like the brand and quality. I don't think I would buy this product on my own after I finish it, but I would still reccomend it as contradicting as it sounds I guess because I wasn't wow'd.
I loved the creamy texture
Ashley from West Virginia
It's has a really good creamy texture to it. I used it frequently and loved how it felt on my eyes, although I didn't really see too big of a difference with my puffiness.
