I'm beginning to really like the concept of products that work while I'm fast asleep (and wide awake, of course). But, I'm beginning to not like the dark circles and puffiness that have made their way to the area just underneath my peepers. So, when team member jennIRL wrote to me about an interesting new depuffing product, I had to give it a whirl.
She asked, "I just saw a commercial for Garnier's Skin Renew Anti-Puff Eye Roller. This is definitely something I suffer from on a semiregular basis; have you used this product, or heard anything about it?"
So, I admit. I was a little leery of the gimmicky nature of the Skin Renew Anti-Puff Eye Roller ($13). A roller-ball wand that magically "erases" the circles and puffy undereye area? Come on, I thought. To find out how it went,
- Day one: The directions said to roll over about once or twice, but I couldn't help myself. I rolled a lot more because it felt amazing, like a gentle minicooling massage under the eye. Did I see results right away? Not really.
- Day two: I was really just looking forward to that relaxing sensation: ahhh. Results? Yes, the puffiness was reduced, but didn't see much of an improvement for my circles.
- Day three: See "day two." But — was there a slight lightening effect under my eyes or was it just my mind playing tricks on me? Hmm.
Overall, I really liked how well this product felt upon application, and how well it wears under makeup. There was no flaking, caking, or greasy feel. This product has potential, and I think it warrants a follow-up post after continual use. Stay tuned.
