♫ Michael Bublé - Grown-Up Christmas List
I've been wanting to try the Garnier Brightening Eye Roll-On ever since I realized my dark eye circles were becoming darker and darker, but never bought it 'coz I wasn't sure how well it would work. Then miraculously, Garnier came out with another version of their Eye Roll-On, the BB (cream) version, which basically does what the original Brightening Eye Roll-On does, except that it has added concealing abilities. I hesitated from buying it (for various reasons) until lately, when I finally decided it was high time I did something to fight those darn panda eyes, lol.
The product claims to have 10 instant visible effects, which claim to make the under-eye area:
- More radiant
- More even-toned
- With less dark circles
- With less dark spots
- Less tired
- More hydrated
- Less visible lines/tightened
The BB Eye Roll-On is roughly pen-shaped, with a rounded top. Only the shade "Natural" is available locally, although I believe they have 2 shades available in other countries.
Just roll it on under and around the eye area. The amount dispensed is quite little so you might need to roll it around a few times to get the desired amount in order to cover the whole eye area.
They aren't kidding when they say "light" BB on the packaging. The BB cream (more like a liquid, actually...) is slightly more watery than the usual BB creams we are used to applying on the face, but I like it because that makes it easier to pat and blend into the eye area. However, this also means that it does not provide full coverage for medium to heavy dark eye circles. Sometimes I have to use this together with my Etude House stick concealer so that my panda eyes will be fully covered. =X
In all, I find this Garnier Light BB Roll-On quite useful, as it does make my eye contour area look smoother and fairer, with less visible dark circles and lines. It also does a good job to even out the skin tone around my eye. Overall a good product, and I love its texture which is easy to pat and blend without pulling or tugging at the delicate skin around the eyes.
Retails at RM 24.90 and is available at all major drugstores and pharmacies.
✓ Pros: Comes in a travel-friendly packaging, affordable price, easy to pat and blend, does what it claims (mostly).
✗ Cons: Product sometimes does not come out so you have to shake the tube and roll it on your hand; texture is watery; does not provide full coverage for heavy dark circles.
