Garnier Eye Roll on
Advantages: Cools the eye area
After suffering many sleepless nights with my daughter and still even though she is 8 months old the odd restless night I have developed dark circles under my eyes. Unfortunately 8 full hours of blissful sleep is impossible for me to achieve most nights so I needed something to perk up my eyes. I don't like wearing make-up and only do so as a last resort and even then I find dark circles the hardest to get rid of. I bought this for an eye watering £9.99 from Tesco.
The product comes in a tube with a roller ball applicator. This product is now also available with added make-up to banish dark circles, it costs the same and comes in light, medium and dark.
The roll on contains caffeine and pro vitamin B5, it is said to refresh, revitalise and cool tired looking eyes as well as moisturise the eye area.
The product is simple to use, you simply roll it over your under eye area and if there is any excess liquid you can just rub this in with your fingers. The product has an instant cooling effect as soon as it is applied to the eyes. It also tingles the eye area. I liked this as it made my itchy tired eyes feel really nice and refreshed. I did notice however that sometimes too much of the product can come out and if you don't rub it in afterwards it can leave a flaky layer on your skin which doesn't look very attractive. I can't say I noticed any difference in the appearance of the dark circles under my eyes. I used this religiously for weeks and there was no visable difference. The only thing this does is cool the eye area and this can be achieved using cucumber or tea bags for a fraction of the price! The product did make my eye area feel more moisturised and less itchy but again I have used eye creams that cost less that do this.
All in all this didn't live up to it's claims, I wouldn't recommend it but I will give it 2 out of 5 stars for it's cooling and moisturising properties.
Summary: Didn't banish my dark circles!
