Harvard-trained medical doctor and botanist Andrew Weil has again teamed up with Origins to develop this new Mega-Bright Dark Circle Minimizer*. Origins say this eye cream will ‘keep your eye area looking bright and also helps strengthen fragile, dry eye skin to help the appearance of darkness from circling back’. I have to say I agree 100%.
This Origins eye cream has a thick creamy feel to it, the consistency reminds me of the Kiehl’s creamy eye treatment with avocado. I’ve been using this mostly in the morning, as I said its quite thick and is nice to apply, it gives you an instant feeling of hydration. As soon as you put this on your under eye area feels smooth and looks luminous and fresh. Perfect if you have dehydrated under eyes.
It’s works as a really good base for concealer as its so rich and my concealer sits really well on top of it. It stops any creasing and keeps the area hydrated all day. This cream is packed full of skin benefits such as,
- White Peony for it’s anti-oxidant properties
- Ume, from the fruit of the Japanese Plum Blossom tree, to help minimise the dark circles
- Grapefruit to help reduce puffynes
- Magnolia Extract works to tighten and strengthen the delicate under eye skin
- Molasses for brightening & evening skin tone
You only need a small amount of this cream and it is easily absorbed and keeps the skin feeling soft throughout the day. I would say my under eye looks brighter (which makes me happy), but I think I also have my cleaner diet to thank for that. I have been eating more fresh fruit and vegetables this year so I’d say a good diet, combined with this Origins cream are making a good team. I’m hoping that as I continue to use the Mega-Bright Dark Circle Minimizer for a second month I see even more results and a reduction in discolouration.
It is a lovely addition to my skincare regime and I think this pot is going to last me quite a while. So if you’re someone that needs help keeping the dark circles at bay, puffiness to a minimum and longs for brighter under eyes then this Origins Mega-Bright Dark Circle Minimizer is a must for you.
Products that are marked with an * have either been sent to me for my consideration or I’ve received at events. I’m under no obligation to review them on my blog. However if I do, the reviews are 100% my own.
