“Garnier’s anti-puff eye roller is clever and really shows that they are trying to make their mark in the mass skincare arena.
Overall I found this to be an effective product for slight eye puffiness (the kind you might see after a late night out for instance), not dark circles. At the top of the tube there is a metal roller ball where the serum inside comes through. I first shook the tube vigorously and found that it was easy to maneuver and gave me great control over where I applied it under my eyes. I really liked the nice cooling effect when I swiped the ball across my under eye area.
The serum is light in texture, oil free and absorbed quickly with a pat of my finger. I felt a tightening effect and saw improvement in the puffiness under my eyes after a few minutes. I also found that by keeping it in the refrigerator it gave me an even better effect.
The whole concept is obviously a modern take on cold compression for depuffing, but it’s a great idea, quick to use and helped me feel more confident in the morning as I faced the day!” L.V.
