I have recently discovered GinZing by Origins. I have been looking for that certain eye  cream that moisturizes and brightens your eyes so I don’t always have to use concealer for days i want to look extra natural.

Pros:

Brightens instantly!

Buildable, meaning you can brighten under your eye as much as you want just reapply more cream

Cons:

too creamy

Overall, I LOVE it

 

 

Benefits of Ginseng

The benefits of long term usage of ginseng have been realized by the North American and European populations only since the late 1960s. As awareness of ginseng’s properties steadily increase, so does its popularity. Ginseng’s value is mainly as a preventative. It should be taken over a long period of time to stimulate rejuvenation and virility. Indications are the best long term benefits are achieved with a dosage of between 500 and 1500 mg (milligrams) per day. For therapeutic use, a dosage of 2000 mg per day is recommended.

Ginseng may be effective for treating colds, coughs, rheumatism, neuralgia, gout, diabetes, anemia insomnia, stress, headache, backache and double vision. Women find it helpful in normalizing menstruation and easing childbirth. In an experiment study in Eastern Europe, ginseng was used effectively as a mouth was against Periodontal Disease which is a progressive destruction of the supporting structures of the teeth. Ginseng also counteracts the effects of physical and emotional stress, enhances memory, counteracts fatigue without caffeine, and improves stamina. Medically, ginseng stimulates the immune system, by spuring the production of the body’s own virus fighting chemicals, helps reduce cholesterol levels in the blood, has anti-clotting effects, reducing risk of arterial blood clots, helps control diabetes by reducing blood sugar levels, is known as an antioxidant, preventing the cumulative cell damage researchers believe cumulates in cancer, protects the liver from the effects of drug, alcohol and toxins, minimizes cell damage from radiation, and increases intestinal absorption of nutrients.
