Origins was founded in 1990 and is known for their natural skin care products and approximately 2,000 stores globally. They are a big brand linked with Estée Lauder, however, every company has big hits and some mistakes, and an average products like Origins Eye Doctor. No I am not kidding; this an average 2.5 stars product, do you want to know why? Keep reading.
– The packaging
Origins Eye Doctor comes in a blue-green tinted jar, I am concerned about putting my fingers on the cream each time I will use it, and to expose it to the air that will diminish its qualities. A pump would be perfect, but sadly it comes in a jar.
– The ingredients
The list is very long, and also they indicate in their website that the ingredients may change so better to check the actual product to see what are the current ones. The main ones that I love: Cucumber, Rosemary, Ginseng, and Green Tea Extract. The main ones that I hate: peg-100 stearate, polysorbate 60 (aldough in a very low quantity), peg-4 dilaurate.
I applied a fair amount under my eyes, it’s texture was light and sunk in easily but the scent was a little bit irritating for me.
– The results
Origins Eye Doctor is a really basic eye cream, it doesn’t irritate my eyes, it sinks in and isn’t overly greasy or waxy. However, Origins Eye Doctor does not do anything else besides hydration, nourishes your under-eye area and makes it feel fresh. Does not fade dark shadows, counter crow’s feet, and de-puff. I would say that this is more a preventative thing.
– The downsides
I hate the smell of Origins Eye Doctor even when is it is very faint. I firmly believe that an eye cream should not have any fragrance.
They claim that Origins Eye Doctor will counteract eye-aging crow’s feet and to fade the look of dark shadows. In my opinion, this a product for people under 30 years if you want to get something to really treat your eyes and you are 30+ keep looking this is not the one.
