Origins Plantscription Anti-Aging Eye Cream
Hey Lovelies,
Hope you're all well! I've got a weekend off which means I've finally got time to catch up on some blogging - yay! 
A while back Origins were running an amazing promotion where you received a free full size Plantscription eye cream with any moisturiser you purchased. Obviously that was an offer too good to pass up, so I chose a moisturiser and got the Origins Plantscription Anti-Aging Eye Cream completely free! Now that I've used up my Bobbi Brown Hydrating Eye Cream (review) which I was using previously, I've moved on to the Origins Plantscription Anti-Ageing Eye Cream. I'm a big fan of eye creams and have been using them as part of my skincare routine for many years.
I'm not sure if everyone knows this, but the delicate under eye area is actually 30% thinner than the rest of the skin on our face. This is why it's really important to use creams under our eyes that are specifically formulated for that area. 
The first thing I noticed about the Origins Plantscription Eye Cream is how soft it is. This cream almost feels like a whipped mousse when you apply it. It has a really light scent that's very fresh and not at all harsh or floral which I love. In fact, the smell reminds me a lot of MAC for some strange reason! Maybe because MAC and Origins are both owned by Estée Lauder - who knows?

 Origins advise to apply this eye cream twice a day, morning and evening and this is how I've been using it. This product is a great base for under eye concealer and I've found my concealer lasts longer and creases less when I use it. This cream is also really hydrating and feels very soothing when you apply it. It isn't greasy at all so perfect if you have oily skin or greasy eyelids!
According to the Origins website, their Plantscription Anti-Aging eye cream helps to fight signs of ageing around your eyes which include crows feet and saggy eye skin. Now even though I am nearly 33 years old, I am lucky and the fine lines around my eyes are hardly noticeable. I also don't suffer from saggy eye skin and fingers crossed I never will haha! For that reason, I can't really say much about the anti ageing properties of this cream, and I guess it's more designed for people in their 40s and over rather than young spring chickens like me who are still in their 30s and pretty much wrinkle free.
However as I got this cream as a freebie, I have been using it anyway, especially as its proving to be a great base for my eye make up and I do have a few very fine lines around my eyes and I wouldn't mind if they faded a little.
I wouldn't say the Origins Plantscription Eye Cream has made the dark circles under my eyes disappear completely, but as it is such a hydrating product, they certainly aren't as dark as they would be if I wasn't using an under eye cream.
All in all I think this is a lovely little product that's perhaps best suited to more mature skin and would definitely make a lovely present for mums or grandmums and is also perfect for those of us who are starting to notice signs of ageing around our eye area.
You can buy this product at your nearest Origins counter for £36.50.
Which eye cream do you use?

    1. If you've got wrinkles (which I'm sure you don't) get this one, otherwise check out the Bovvi Brown Hydrating eye cream or Benefit It's Potent Eye Cream (it's produced by the same people that do Dior's skincare) xxxx

  4. I've been on the hunt for an eye cream as I just tend to use samples that I have laying around and don't really get the full benefit.
    I'm the around the same age as you so this might not be as good but I'll check out the ones you mentioned above.
