Review: Garnier Anti-puff Eye Roller



Yo!
I know lately, my posts have been not been as frequent as they used to be; I have been going through some stuff and have been quite busy with work as well! But I always think of my readers and will always have something refreshing for y'all trust me! OK so about today's post: I did a product haul few months ago and I am now ready to review this product. I have mentioned it here several times; my eye bags. For the most part, it is hereditary, and I remember many childhood pics in which I sported eye bags lol. But the thing is that for people like me, the tendency to look very tired around the eye area is greater and that's why I tend to not neglect my eyes. So I use eye drops sometimes, I have used tea bags (those work by the way), store-bought cooling pads, ice and all that. I will eventually purchase an eye cream even though they are quite pricey. But thankfully, I am currently using this more affordable eye area product called Garnier Skin Renew Anti-Puff Eye Roller and here's my review:



How I use it: As can be seen, it has a metal roller which when rubbed along the eye area, dispenses the product on the skin. The skin absorbs the clear product completely within 2 minutes leaving NO residue (a plus for me). I use this first thing in the morning before bathing, and then I reapply after bathing.


What it does for me: If you can read the print on the box above, you will see what problems the product tackles and the solution it provides as well as when to expect results. All I can say is, those are no lies. My eyes, over the first 3 weeks started looking more refreshed and less tired. There is still my signature line of demarcation or slight folds along my eye region but generally, I think the product has worked OK for me.

It has caffeine (which draws out excess water) and mint extract. Also the metal roller has a cooling effect which helps to de-puff eye bags. Makes sense as many remedies for eye bags include placing a metal spoon over the eyes, or any other cool item.

I don't just rub it on, I massage the area with the roller for some seconds and I
 make sure to cover a wide area around my eyes.



Do I really like it?: Yes I do. It delivers quick results and over time, I have seen an improvement. It is also reasonably priced, portable (fits into my make-up bag like a charm), easy and fast to use and it lasts.


Price: I got it for $17 (about 2800 naira) on Amazon. For something that lasts, it's not too pricey. Personally I would prefer it to be a bit cheaper, say $10 haha.

Packaging: The tube it comes in is very sturdy and the metal ball roller doesn't jam. It's also so portable and light-weight.

Where you can get this: I am sure it is available in many online and brick and mortar stores all over the world, and here in Nigeria I found it at Poise store at The Palms, Ikeja.

Overall I would score this product 8/10.

What products have been working for you lately?


Love,
Fola

  3. Omg I didn't know they had things like this. The other day I was looking for natural remedies for tired eyes and I saw that cold tea bags help. If that doesn't work I have to try this. - justaise.blogspot.com

    1. Loool if you mean this anti-puff roller I found and purchased it on Amazon after doing a lil research on affordable eye creams that combat tired-looking eyes and puffiness. My last review and giveaway on the LED teeth whitening kit was sponsored by the company after I was contacted by them and I agreed to doing a review. xxx
