Origins No Puffery Eye Roll-On | Review
I've tried other depuffing options in the past--Lierac Diopti-Calm (not quite as effective as the claims) and Origins Ginzing (more makeup than skincare); so as soon as my most recent eye potion hit rock bottom, I was on the hunt for another option. After landing eyes on Into the Gloss' glowing review of the Clinique roll-on, I was pretty keen. Yet, Origins (debatably my favorite brand) launched a similar option, with minty packaging, and I was in 'can't decide' territory. I reverted to the 'swatch' test; side by side; testing the real cooling properties. Can you guess who won? Yup--the Origins No Puffery Cooling Roll-on (and it's arguably the best early-morning eye savior I've found).
An extension to Origins', already established, 'No Puffery' line, the cooling roll-on serves as an everyday option of their already popular No-Puffery Mask. With Yeast Extract to brighten and Hoelen Mushroom Extract to calm redness, and, not to mention, a metal applicator to get the real cooling properties going.
Now, onto the part you've all been waiting for...does it work? The answer is yes. Although lacking on the hydration front, as someone who doesn't struggle with flakey bits under my peepers, it's not a factor I really consider. As for the claims, it not only rids of signs of fatigue, but aids in a much more awake disposition as well.
Oh, Origins--you've stolen my heart again. Now, if only you could churn something out that helps me fit into the sleep cycle of my peers....
