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.

My regular eye cream, Eye Doctor, had been sold out in stores for months, so I decided to give this a try. Within days of switching, my eyes started to itch and my eyeballs turned bright red - I thought I had pink eye! The shimmer/glitter in this was so irritating, it felt like I was getting small slices on my eyeballs. I switched contacts multiple times, but the irritation didn't stop until I stopped the product. Even after stopping the use of the product, I had to switch to another new pair of contacts, because the old ones were still carrying risidual glitter.

My undereyes look dark because of shadows, so no amount of eye cream or concealer will really help with that. I received a sample of this as a GWP and became obsessed. I love this because it brightens a little. I apply it under my eyes, on my brow bone, and everywhere that I would apply highlighter. It gives me a nice but subtle glowy look.
I love the product

I will continue to purchase the product
Is NOT a good makeup eye primer
Yaya from Ca
I received a sample (LUCKILY) & applied this at night & woke up the following day to apply my eye makeup. Over 8 hrs later i noticed around my eyes has dried up patches. So unattractive, I've never experienced this before with face cream. Save your money!

Burned my eyes
Kyotophile from MD
Like some others who have posted reviews, I found that this product burned the area around my eyes and turned my eyelids red. The skin also started to flake. I have stopped using this product and switched to another brand, with much improved results. This is disappointing because otherwise I've found Origins products in various lines to work for my skin, and I can use the regular Ginzing moisturizer on other areas of my face without this problem.
Kate from California
I absolutely love this eye cream for an instant refresher in the mornings. If you put it in the fridge, it's cooling and feels amazing. This little jar is more on the speedy side but will literally last you MONTHS.
Insomnia can't stop me
Allison from North Carolina
After my sleepless nights, I put this around my eyes under my makeup and it really keeps me from looking like a corpse.
Lettie from St Louis
Have tried so many eye creams claiming to be for sensitive eyes, that did not deliver. This cream does not cause my eyes to water, itch, or get blurry. This cream does not irritate, and absorbs well! My search is over.
I love it so much
Mila from California
It is so smooth and light on my around eye skin. Staying dry and soft. The only thing I feel sad about it is the length of time using after opening, quite short just 6 months, I hope it will be longer, 12 months perhaps

I have been using Origins for 20 yrs. I've been using this for 4+. I have alot of puffiness under my eyes and this takes care of it. Definitely moisturizes the eye area. It is great to brighten the eye area, leaving a little shimmer that looks great under my Origins moisturizer and foundation. A couple of yrs ago my 72 yr old mom asked what I've been using. She now swears by it as well & is addicted! Wish it was larger. A bit prices, but 100% worth it!
Brightens and evens under eyes
Jess from Georgia
This definitely helps with brightening under eyes and reducing puffiness, feels really good in the morning when I put it on. It can cause small bumps under eyes if I don't blend it in enough which isn't too big of a deal. Overall really like it
Brightens and helps reduce puffiness
Sara85H from Overland Park, KS
It's amazing how much better my eyes look after using this.
K from Hawaii
This literally does nothing. It feels nice and does give nice sheen but does nothing for puffiness.
Didn't do much for me
amber from Cincinnati
My jar is almost empty and I won't be buying another one. Didn't do much for my eyes really. Will go back to Roc. It also has some shimmer and it didn't always absorb into my skin which are 2 things I don't want. Didnt depuff and I dont have alot of puff.
Kena from Texas
Has a little bit of shimmer. Very very moisturizing under my eyes. Helps with puffiness.
Just ok from San Diego
My eyes are still puffy, but it has ingredients that should help. Maybe my puffs are just to puffy. It does feel nice so I may or may not return it.
My go to eye cream.

First a few dabs of this under eyes and anywhere face tends to swell and then morning coffee! It is a bit pricey considering how small but worth it. I have purchased it before & would purchase it again.

It really didn't do much of anything tbh. save ur coins
Sarah from Michigan
Let me start off saying that this cream did not get rid of my dark circles but mine are due to genetics so nothing can really help that unless I get work done lol. But it did give a 'brighting' awake look! I love this cream and it just gives my face a healthier glow (:
Tulsi from Georgia
I was really excited to try this. I have an olive skin tone and naturally have dark under eyes. In the morning, they are very puffy. I've tried multiple under eye creams from low to high end and am still on the hunt for something to truly help reduce the appearance of dark puffy under eyes. This cream smells nice and provides a refreshing cooling sensation. However, it doesn't minimize the look of dark under eyes at all. I will say if you just want a nice light moisturizing under eye cream, this does sit nicely under makeup. However, I will not be repurchasing this product for my needs.
