Ok, so I’m woman enough to admit I like to pick stuff, peel stuff, and pop stuff. Pop pimples, on that. Pick my nose? No, never but scabs? Aw heck yes! Peel? Sure, give me dead skin, sunburned skin, whatever you got and I’ll peel it. Yes, I am guilty of all this stuff. God…don’t sit there and lie saying you don’t enjoy doing this too. You don’t want us thinking how terribly dishonest you are because you won’t admit you relish the idea of picking that scab off your knee when you fell on the ice last week and scratched yourself.
My best friend once told me that he enjoys popping his boyfriend’s pimples…I just wanna get it out there that I do NOT love the idea of peeling, popping, or picking stuff from other people’s bodies however I have no such problems doing it to myself. Needless to say I never held Jai’s hand again after hearing he pops Mattie’s pimples, ew…not cool!
Anyway…I’m bringing this all up because of a cool peel mask I recently got.
Jump it to hear my stories of peeling!
Absolutely lovin’ the fact that Garner makes mask treatments in Asia! Dude, WTH? Why do we never get the cool stuff?
Recently, the Muse came across Garner Self-Heating Sauna Masks at a local Asian beauty shop so I hauled five packs, shrug they sounded good and the price was right at $3.00 for two.
What did I think?
Jump for it!
I’m quite sad over the fact that for the last year or so I wake up with tired, puffy eyes almost every single day. This could be old age creeping up on me or the lack of sleep. The Muse likes to think it’s lack of sleep rather than admit she’s getting old.
I’ve set out a quest for over a year to locate the perfect product to de-puff my tired eyes and wake them up again. Sadly, I’ve yet to find a single product that works and believe you me and tried ‘em all!
For the past few months I’ve been using Garnier Skin Renew Anti-Puff Eye Roller and I was kinda hopeful for a while that this would be my solution to my woes. I mean think about it…an anti-puffing agent at the local drugstore for a nice price…seems to good to be true right?
Well fact is that it is too good to be true because it doesn’t work at all. Period. The end. Sad sigh.
Why the Muse was tricked into believing that Garnier Skin Renew Anti-Puff Eye Roller was the solution to life, the universe, and everything is truly beyond her. I guess the Muse was just feeling hopeful that finally some drugstore brand product was finally released that would wow her but sadly as with all drugstore brands she was in for a sore disappointment.
Garnier Skin Renew Anti-Puff Eye Roller comes in a nifty little roller ball applicator and is a cooling liquid that contains a high dose of caffeine. As you may know, caffeine is supposedly a miracle agent for de-puffing your eyes. Personally the Muse has tried many caffeine laden products and none have worked. The Muse likes to think it’s a nice marketing strategy for making us all frenzied about how caffeine wakes up so it should likely do the same with our eyes…not.
Honestly, I should have known the product wouldn’t work from the get go considering that it not only promises to de-puff but also rid my eyes of dark circles. Anything that makes two big promises like that does make me wonder. I decided to try this for a few months before reviewing it so religiously, daily, I’d apply it prior to applying my eye cream. I applied it once in the AM and once in the PM and I almost had myself tricked that I noticed some difference in my eyes…but nope..truly this was a trick of my imagination because honestly the puffiness was still very there.
The product is absolutely ideal as it applies wonderfully well with the applicator. It’s also nice and cooling and has a nice fresh scent. I think the cooling sensation is much of where I got it into my head that the product was actually working however I honestly see absolutely no results in regards to either puffiness or dark circles.
All in all it’s pretty much well wasted but hey what do you expect from a company who makes haircare products right? I’d say stick with the hair products and leave the skincare to the experts.
This Muse is still trying to locate that perfect product to de-puff her tired eyes and she knows now, after many months of use, Garnier Skin Renew Anti-Puff Eye Roller isn’t it!
Skip it! Total trash as far as this Muse is concerned.
