B32720/1)

My Opinion: - I have used this product twice before and if I am not wrong, Garnier has fixed the price of this Eye Roll-on at Rs 199 since the last 3 years. Three years back I had used this Eye Roll-on to de-puff my naturally puffy eyes and it had worked very well. So this time when I was sent this product for review by the brand, I was happy to use it once again. The packaging of this product is very innovative just like a marker with a flat roller head at the tip.The pen has a beautiful yellow plastic body with a transparent screw-on lid and the roller is made of steel and hence gives a cool feeling to my eye area while massaging.

              The liquid is colorless and watery. The product spreads easily on my eye area and takes about 3-4 mins to dry up. It gets absorbed within a few minutes and does not sit on my skin. I use it morning and evening after cleansing my face. It does not make any difference to my eye shadows/liner/concealer etc. It is fragrance free and that is a big advantage for an eye product. True to the brand's claim, it instantly cools off the eye area and gives a soothing and refreshing feeling.

                I do not have serious dark circles and my main problem is puffiness. This product has always helped me to ward off puffiness, I never get puffy eyes while using this product but once I leave it immediately the puffiness is back. So I will call it a temporary relief for people with puffy eyes, of course the brand does not claim to provide long lasting effects so I wouldn't complain. Coming to the anti-dark circle claim, I will say it does very less for dark circles and it would absolutely do nothing for people with serious dark circles.

                   With regular use though, it gives a slight brightening effect. It will take atleast 3 months to get used up if I use it twice a day and so Rs 199 is very affordable taking into consideration the prices of eye-care products from other brands. Thumps up to Garnier for maintaining the price at Rs 199. This Eye Roll-on contains Caffeine which is known for its depuffing properties and Pro-vitamin B5/Panthenol which is a humectant, emollient and moisturiser and has good skin penetration.

Pros: -

* Easily Available and affordable

* Great packaging, easy to carry around in my purse

* De-puffs my eyes

* Would stay with me for 3+ months

* Steel Roller gives a soothing and cool massage to my eye area

* Contains Caffeine and Panthenol (Pro-vitamin B5)

* The Eye Roll-on is fragrance-free, dermatologically as well as ophthalmologically tested

* Brightens up with regular use

Cons: -

* Does nothing for dark circles

* Contains Methylparaben (though I am not paranoid about parabens, some people are)

                I rate Garnier Light Eye Roll-on 4 out of 5. Its one of the first eye products I had used so I couldn't give any less than 4. Its a great product for people with puffy eyes but it would do nothing for dark circles especially for people with heavy dark circles.

Hope you enjoyed this review, do leave behind your precious comments and share with us your experiences regarding eye-care products.

Oh I am disappointed. I thought it could do something to the dark circles. I have used this before and didn't find any difference to my under eye area :-(

This Roll-On had reduced my dark circles. Works like a charm for puffed eyes and improves your fine lines around the eyes. Apply twice daily for results. Bought from Delivery timing was perfect no delay with no complain with the product.

Every time I open a review of a dark circle removing thing,the users say they don't have dark circles and can't comment 😑😒now I believe there's nothing in the world that can actually reduce dark circles.
