Review of Garnier Nutritioniste Skin Renew Anti-Puff Eye Roller

Product Review: Garnier Nutritioniste Skin Renew Anti-Puff Eye Roller

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.

I've been using it for a few weeks now - Love the way it feels like everyone else, but it hasn't done anything for the circles or puffiness. I bought Pixi Eye Zone Brightener - Lighten on a whim at Target a while back. Where it doesn’t get rid of the puffiness or circles, it does the best job at hiding them with the reflecting mica. It dries translucent so sometimes I don’t even have to use concealer to hide the circles…a miracle in itself. But after really late nights, the concealer goes on smoothly over it. Only $24 at Target…I’m a cheapskate, so this seems like a lot for me, but I’ll definitely buy it again when I run out.

Sometimes I have noticed that these products actually have the OPPOSITE effect on me! Does anyone else notice that? Like.. it makes the puffiness a whole lot WORSE than before? Not always, but sometimes...

Bought this....did not do ONE thing for my puffiness, in fact, it looked worse after I put it on....waste of money.

I haven't tried it yet I want to though. It must work differently for different people I guess

i've seen the commercial for this a lot and i've been thinking about trying it but i'm one for instant gratification and i guess maybe that's not realistic here. thank you for reviewing it though and telling me what to expect so maybe i have to give it a couple days of use before i really notice anything happening. it might be worth the $13 at least

I saw this on sale yesterday and had to pick it up (I really like Garnier's face products). I tried it last night and this morning, and while there were no visible signs, I agree with everyone else: it feels amazing and doesn't interfere with makeup.

I am curious about this, too. Are you supposed to keep it in the fridge by chance. i would definitely try that for addtionial help with puffiness. I wouldn't hold my breath for the dark circles, though.

I don't really suffer from either puffiness or dark circles but I'd love to hear more about this. I'm so curious about it. I love the whole nutritioniste line because it smells so good and really makes my skin feel soft.

I don't use it for dark circles but I do use it for puffiness, my eyes tend to puff up quite a bit when I sleep. I love the product, it works for me and the cool liquid really does feel great!

I used this, too. It does help with puffiness, but my dark circles are still there. It did nothing for them.

Same here ... felt good, but that's about all I got out of it. Puffiness remained, circles remained.

I read about this on another blog and the reviewer there kind of had the same feeling. It felt great on and that it didn't interfere with her makeup, but she didn't really see any results.

I bought it too (on sale for 6.99) and it's also been three days... it does feel great, but I'm skeptical about it actually working... it never hurts to try!

ugh waste of $13 i used it for about a week and It dod noting I might as well finish it because theres no point in being wasteful. but otherwise the application and feel is creat nothing greasy or slimy about it. but that's its only redeeming quality
