Origins GinZing Refreshing Eye Cream

RATING (out of 5 stars): 2 stars

COST: $30 for 0.5 ounces

THE SKINNY: Origins GinZing Refreshing Eye Cream is meant to fight those dark circles under your eyes after a bad night's sleep. It uses caffeine from the coffee bean, ginseng, and magnolia extract to do that.

Like all of Origins' products, this cream goes on lightly and is non-irritating to tired eyes. It's supposed to help brighten and "wake up" your tired eyes. And it sort of does that, although without any eye-popping difference.

The few times I've tried the sample, some of the puffiness under my eyes does go away, but my eyes still look tired and droopy. Maybe I'm not using enough of the cream?

Ole Henricksen Ultimate Eye Lift Gel delivered much better results, even though you have to put it on the night before.

KEEP OR TOSS: Keep the sample, but I won't but a full-sized product.
