Beauty Test Drive: Origins GinZing Refreshing Eye Cream

We feel sad, hurt, angry and confused when the insult to the injury of a poor night’s sleep includes dark circles and puffy eyes. Is there no justice in this world? Luckily, Origins feels our pain, and with faking a well-rested look in mind, they created a brand-new eye cream designed to lend you the illusion of a person who got eight hours of sleep. I’ve been trying this product since the beginning of Fashion Week, which requires lots of running around on little zzz’s. Of all the eye salves I’ve tried, I’m really impressed with how quickly and efficiently GinZing works. Touted as a “shot of espresso for tired eyes,” it shapes up the eye area in a few different ways: Ginseng and caffeine act as instantly toning eye openers; magnolia helps reduce dark circles, even though some derms claim nothing really works on the latter; and brightening optics, silica and mica, superficially illuminate the area overall. (Word to the wise: Use sparingly and sensitive-skin types should test first, as the ingredients are no joke. I had a slight skin reaction but it cleared right up when I stopped slathering it on like a junkie.) Anyway, I’m so sleepy some mornings I don’t really care how it works just that it does, and after the past few weeks I’ve spent with this secret weapon, well, I can say we’re still in our honeymoon phase.
