Garnier Nutritioniste Anti-Dark Circle Eye Roller

A few weeks back on a quest to combat the dark circles that come with a newborn I bought the Garnier Nutritioniste Anti-Dark Circle Eye Roller. The product boasts that it is a '2-in-1 eye product: 1- eye care with caffeine to hydrate and refresh; 2- tinted mineral pigments to instantly cover dark circles. The combination in a cooling roll-on applicator works wonders! It’s ideal for a gentle, hygienic application in the sensitive eye area and the non-messy roll-on applicator is convenient for use on-the-go.'

Now I don't have puffy eyes much so I cannot really attest to the fact that this aspect of the product works, however if that changes I can test it properly I will be sure to let you know. As to the dark circles I kinda feel like this product can't do much more then any under eye concealer. This product does have Lemon essence which is supposed to give a radiant look and diminish darkness, but this really can only do so much. If you have chronic dark circles this comes from the blood vessels being very close to the skins surface... nothing can change this so for those of you who have always had dark circles, these products cannot do much! For those of us who only once and a while suffer from dark circles due to stress diet and lack of sleep, products such as these can be helpful.

Really though this product is simply a glorified concealer... and a mild one at that. I do really like what it does for my eye area but for it's limited value I will probably go back to my normal under eye concealer once this product is gone... unless I find it on sale for a great price!

I have the original one (the green tube) and although it feels great and refreshing, I'm not sure it really works at depuffing z=

I think the purpose and the usp of the product is being a concealer.It does not claim to do anything more.So I thought it was a wonderful product with an endearing smell.

@ natural cosmetics- The beginning quote of my post were the claims on Garnier's site about the product. I have spoken to several others who have used the product and they see no real anti puffing qualities to the product at all.

I did say that is was an ok concealer but if that is all it is Garnier should not make any other claims.

I am very glad that this product worked for you. I myself am a big fan of many of Garnier's products but for me, especially after speaking to others this simply isn't one of them.
