I’m skeptical when it comes to rolling my way through a bad puffy eye day, I just don’t seem to have much success with “roller” eye treatments. How are rollers treating you?
Much to my sadness, Garnier Skin Renew Anti-Puff Eye Roller was a bust for me, I really seen little to no results using it so I was ever so skeptical about the Garnier Caffeine Anti-Dark Circles but…but…but…it’s tinted dude. So it acts as a concealer and tames the puff! This could prove awesome right? And we all know what a concealer junkie I am, I had to try it!
Garnier Tinted Eye Roll On is formulated with caffeine, just like our bodies crave the java in the morning to wake us up so do our eyes. Caffeine is known for its stimulating action and ability to depuff tired, sleepy eyes.
What’s so different about this new Garner Roll On compared to the old version?
The formula hasn’t only been revamped to include more depuffing ingredients but also now comes in two shade selections for extra concealing power as well. It not only reduces the appearance of bags and dark circles but also conceals them!
Does it work?
Mmmm not on my puffy eyes sadly no. I’ve tried caffeine enriched products prior to this and haven’t really seen dramatic effects and this is about the same. The formula is cooling and feels hydrating under my eyes however my puff stays right where it is. Younger eyes may experience better results in regards to puffiness but chronic puffy eyes due to older age probably won’t see dramatic results in my opinion.
However, I don’t mind so much as acting double duty as a concealer it works great at brightening up my eye area and I’m kinda pleased to have a formula that also contains ingredients that act on depuffing at the very least. The concealer isn’t heavily pigmented and has a thinner consistency than most but it still manages to roll on easily and freshen up tired looking eyes. It’s not going to conceal major dark circles but it does a nice job of deflecting away from extra baggage hanging out under your eyes. I like the roller application for the concealer and I’m left to wonder why don’t more brands embrace a roller for their concealers, fun stuff!
Overall, younger women can experience both it’s concealing and depuffing action however older ones may not notice too much of a difference but will still enjoy the concealing benefits and ease of “rolling” on one’s concealer.
Quite nice in my opinion even though it didn’t successfully depuff my eyes.
It’s available now within the UK but I’m sure it’ll hit the US market in the next few months.
Anyone in Europe try yet?
Do share your mini review!
US chicklets will you buy it when it hits our shores?
