Product Review: Garnier Skin Renew Anti-Puff Eye Roller

.


I forgot my camera at home hence I was unable to post at my usual time, LOL. I also got a little haircut since my hair was so long it was driving me nuts, well more like a trim since it doesn't look any different to me other than the fact that my hair feels a lot lighter which I love! Anyway, I bought this product about 2 months ago but forgot to write a review on it so I thought id write one now before I forget again!

Product: 2 out of 5
Packaging: 5 out of 5
Overall: 2 out of 5
Price: $10 (price varies depending on store)
Where to get it: Many drugstores have it
Would I buy it again? No

What they claim: Garnier Nutritioniste Skin Renew is our 1st anti-puff eye roller that uses a unique combination of skin-nutrients - Ingredient complexes developed exclusively by Garnier to work on skin's outer layer - and a cooling, roll-on applicator to stimulate micro-circulation. Diminishes dark circles. Skin Renew anti-puff eye roller is right for you if you want to gently stimulate micro-circulation around skin's delicate eye area to decongest excess fluid for diminished dark circles and puffiness.

Active Ingredients:
Caffeine - Decongests puffiness & diminishes dark circles
Pro-Vitamin B5 - Refreshes & hydrates the delicate eye area

PROS: It's non-greasy, easy to use, and doesn't take up a lot of space; the packaging is perfect for something like this which is why I gave it a 5 out of 5. It feels good upon application, a nice cooling and cold sensation to the eyes (like a liquid cucumber), has no weird smell. I did notice that it reduced puffiness a bit, not a whole lot, but a tiny bit...I used it morning and night everyday for about a month to two months, and my puffiness has gone down, but circles still there.

CONS: I didn't notice my dark circles disappear (as you can probably tell from my Dior HydrAction post, my circles are still there!) I didn't really notice any significant difference using this product other than it feels nice when you apply it.

Directions for using the roller: Just roll the ball a couple times on your under eye area.

Would I buy again? No, I think it's a waste of money and you can probably spend it on something else that will show better results.

Thanks for the review! I spent so long debating at Target whether to buy these or not (haha, oops?)--glad I decided to skip them!

I have never used a Garnier product that I liked...so no surprise.

Ethereal Prey said...

thanks for the review! I was wondering about this product. i had a $2 off coupon but then after reading your review i don't think i'll be buying it.

The only garnier product I know is their hair stuffs, they just started to promote skincare line here in PI recently...good thing I read this, if we have it here, I'll be one of those rushing to buy hoping to say bye bye to my dark circles!

jaci said...

Thanks for the review. I'd been so curious about the product and could not find any reviews on it ! :]

Clinique Repairwear (Intensive Eye Cream) has been excellent for my under eye circles. The caffeine reduces the swelling/darkness.

mayaari said...

thanks for writing up a review on this - i was considering buying it, but i guess it's not as effective as they claim

eBeautyBlog said...

hey girl, thanks for doing a review on this. I was so gonna get it when I saw the positive reaction on soompi. How long did you use this? did you use it consistently?

typicalgirl1726 said...

Darn it I just bought it. lol! Threw out the package too! ehh I guess I'll still try it out since I put moola into it. Good review! I love your reviews!

Fei said...

This one intrigued me, because it kinda sorta reminds me of the La Mer eye cream with the little silver doo dad. Guess I'm not buying this anytime soon.

Valerie said...

Hey Vanessa; Thank you for reviewing this product, I just bought the product today too and was going to do a review on it but u beat me to it lol. How long did you used the product for?? and any good recommendation for undereye circles??

Shen said...

now this is a product that i gots to have.. too bad i'm on a budget. :( and they don't have that here. looks to be great for travelling since it won't take so much space.. esp during late night out and have to wake early for flights or meetings. :)

Shen said...

cont. too bad its not that effective. :(

anyhoot, i got my Purely haul and seems to be a match with Olive Beige as well. :) great service i got from Robyn! :)

ainstein said...

thanks for reviewing this! I saw it at the store and was debating on getting it but wasnt sure if it would be worth the moola. i dont think i'll be buying this, like u said id rather pay for something that will work. i hate dark circles and puffiness!

jon n kate +8 hands down beat the duggers!

did u get to watch the new ep of run's house? i love russy! hahahaha hes so adorkable!

jeSmakeup said...

oOhh i kinda thought so!! I guess we're genetics maybe thats why it doesnt reduce the dark circles... since some ppl said it worked for them.... I guess i'll pass on this product! Great Review btw!

Ilianexy said...

I know what u mean girl! Hate to put money on something that is not effective. Have you tried Hylexin? They say the product is insane! Let me tell you something, in the tinted moisturizer review I noticed everything except dark circles. I noticed after a reader pointed out that you had dark circles, that's when I had to go back and check if it was true, I see some normal shadows there, just like anyone has. So don't stress yourself, as I said your face is so gorgeous that the last think people will notice is any dark circles!

Anastasia said...

I've never been keen on Garnier, either. I love the smell of their conditioner, but it always makes my hair (which isn't prone to grease) greasy D:

It was a neat product idea though, looked like a rollerball deodorant for your eyes.

tokyostargirl said...

I have been looking for something to reduce my puffiness and circles, but I need results! Thanks for reviewing this!

*Jen* said...

thanks so much for reviewing this! i pick this up everytime i pass it at my local drugstore, but now i'm glad i didn't waste my money!

StilettoRed said...

aww bummer, i just got this yesterday, before this post! :( I hope it works for me though....*crosses fingers*

Vanessa <3 said...

hmm puffiness gone ehh? have you ever had one that actually work on citcles?

Beauty is Androgynous said...

i'm so skeptical about a lot of de puffing agents especially if they're drug store type stuff.
i dont know why.
they usually just feel good like u said and don't show much if any result.

Tammy said...

I bought this 2 weeks ago and it is such a waste of money..the only thing I did like about it is how cool it felt once I applied it.

fuzkittie said...

The roll on idea is pretty good, it gently massages! :] I couldn't tell you had dark circles.

Mrs. Lynne, MakeupFix.net said...

I have come to the conclusion that Garnier products are really hit or miss. And for me, I'd have to err on the miss side :/ Thanks for the review sis. No more green containers to congest my bathroom, hah! :D

jeSmakeup said...

Im soo glad u made a review on this! i just read ur newest blog... i get alergies a lot! and i guess its in genetics... sucks for me =(

LMScully said...

Ha-ha! I only paid $3 for mine after Rite Aide rebate. I used mine for a month. The roller felt good around my eye because it is so cool to the touch. Didn't do anything for my shadows. I did notice a slight decrease in puffiness. But, for the price, I would grab a tube of PrepH.

Roxy said...

Thanks for the heads up! I see this everywhere thank god I didnt buy it!

Tristan Robin Blakeman said...

I was glad to read your review...I've been using this product for two weeks now - and I don't notice ANY difference in ANYthing.

I thought I was just beyond help.
