The product- Garnier Caffeine Anti-dark Circles 2-in-1 Roll-on

I was kindly sent this to review for my blog.

How much is it? £9.99

Where can I buy it? From Boots or here

What they say-

2-in-1 formula:

  • Moisturising eye care and a cooling roller ball:
    refreshes & hydrates tired looking eyes
  • With mineral pigments it instantly covers dark

What I say- I wasn’t keen if I’m honest. I tried the original eye roll on, as I suffer with dark circles and just found it did nothing. I decided to see if it had been improved but again, the formula appears to have remained the same. The shade I was sent was Light- but I found it to be far too yellow for my skin tone, and didn’t hide my circles at all. However, I’ve not used it when my under eyes are looking particularly swollen so it may be great for calming bags. My mum has offered to trial it for that purpose. I have however, read many reviews raving about it, how awake it can make you look and how soothing it can be. Personally, it did nothing for my natural dark circles- I need a thicker formula to cover them.

How do I use it? Roll it under your eyes and blend-fingers would probably be best.

Would I buy it again? Probably not. It's just not thick enough for me, plus the colour was all wrong

Once my mum has tested it on her bags I’ll post an update.

Yeah I've given mine to my mum too, WAY to yellow isn't it! I mean it works, does what it says it's supposed to do.. but totally the wrong colour! xo
