Garnier Skin Renew Anti-Dark-Circle Roller Review and Swatches

September 6, 2011

Right after I found out about the new Garnier Skin Naturals Light BB Instant Fairness BB Eye Roll-On that launched in Asia, I decided to give its American equivalent a shot.

Garnier Skin Renew Anti-Dark-Circle Roller

Similar to the original Skin Renew Anti-Puff Roller which has already made quite a buzz on YouTube, the Garnier Skin Renew Anti-Dark-Circle Roller utilizes a roller applicator that you roll directly under the eye.

Ingredients include:

Caffeine to energize and stimulate microcirculation.
Lemon Essence to brighten in just one week.
Mineral Pigments to instantly correct dark circles.

I read on MUA that this comes in different shades but I can only find Sheer Tint, a light peachy color, at my local Target. Lucky for me, the shade is a perfect match for my NC30 skin and works great on light to medium skin tones.

Texture-wise, it is rather thin and runny. It applies with a slight cooling feeling that is so refreshing. The roller is also excellent for on-the-go application and touching up. I like to roll this from the inner corner to the outer corner once, let the product sit for a few seconds then pat with my finger to blend.

As for the coverage, it is on the light side but still managed to brighten up my undereye area and wipe out 3/4 of my circles. You can also wear this over foundation and concealer if you need more coverage.

The only thing I wish could be better its moisturizing ability. While this applies fine without looking cakey like concealer, it can creep into fine lines when my skin is dry. If you have dry skin around your eyes, you might want to use an eye cream underneath.
