Garnier Light Brightening Eye Roll-On has caused much buzz when it was released a few years back. I think what made it wildly popular was novelty - we're all used to eye creams, so an eye roll-on was a nice change. Plus, it claims to depuff eye bags and reduce dark circles all at a very affordable price. While I don't have (very) dark circles to begin with, I work in front of the computer all day and my eyes feel so tired by the end of my shift. I tested this product for weeks, and now here's a review.
Garnier Light Brightening Eye Roll-On (P199.00)
About the Product:
- Caffeine - stimulates micro-circulation, brightens , adds radiance
- Massage - drains the eye area of liquids that causes puffiness
- Contents: 15ml
- Shelf lift: 6 months after opening
- It comes in a compact and slim tube, and the contents won't spill so it's safe to bring it everywhere you go.
- It contains caffeine that stimulates micro-circulation underneath the skin, and I believe that this also helps in depuffing eye bags. (Caffeine is also used to temporarily decrease the appearance of cellulite.)
- This product is fragrance-free, but I still detect a hint of that fresh, lemony signature scent of Garnier's Light range. (I actually like the scent so it's a pro for me.)
- This product is tested by dermatologists and opthalmologists.
- This product has a metal ball applicator that is used to massage the eye contour. The metal ball is cool to touch even if you just leave it in room temperature, so it has this energizing and depuffing effect on the eye bags. Upon application, I feel an immediate but slight lifting effect on my eye area! On some days, I like leaving this in the fridge to give my eye area an extra cool treat. This product provides instant relief to my hot, tired eyes. The cool rollerball applicator just feels so good!
- The applicator can be hard to control, and during the times that too much product is dispensed, you'd have to use your ring finger to spread the product along your eye contour area for it to be absorbed.
- The product comes in liquid form, and it could take a few minutes for it to be totally absorbed into the skin.
- While it makes my eyes look less puffy, I haven't really noticed a reduction of my dark circles.
- It's not moisturizing. If you have other eye area concerns like fine lines, skip this one.
Would I repurchase? No, but I might try the tinted version of this.
Available at leading department stores nationwide.
I just realized, this is the first Garnier product I've ever reviewed. Have you also tried the Garnier Light Brightening Eye Roll-On and/or the tinted version? How do you find it?
