Packaging: ♦ ♦ ♦ ♦
Garnier's Anti-Dark Circle Eye Roller is packaged the same way as their Anti-Puff Eye Roller, with the difference in color. It's comes in a long skinny plastic tube with a metal roller ball applicator on top. Each tube comes with .5 fl oz of product.
Claim: Instantly roll away dark circles. Caffeine Gel + Rollerball energizes and stimulates microcirculation. Lemon Essence brightens. Tinted mineral pigments instantly corrects dark circles. Over time, lack of sleep and daily fatigue make eyes look tired. Microcirculation slows and the delicate skin around the eyes becomes thinner and more translucent. Dark circles and shadows appear. Skin Renew Anti-Dark-Circle Roller is right for you if you want to instantly correct the appearance of dark circles and brighten the skin around your eyes.

Final Verdict: ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥
Ever since Garnier came out with their Anti-Dark Circle Eye Roller, I've been meaning to try it. I only hesitated because I was doubting how well it would work. I had tired their Anti-Puff Roller was disappointed and I apprehensive to try another roller. Finally, curiosity got the best of me and I finally bought it.
Since I bought my Anti-Dark Circle Eye Roller, I've used every morning over my moisturizer & primer and underneath my foundation. I simply roll the product under my eyes once and then pat it with my fingers to blend. Before trying it on I thought the coverage would be sheer because it said "Sheer Tint" on the box, but once I had applied it, it had great coverage (medium-full). This Anti-Dark Circle Roller also works to brighten the area under your eye. Before I tried the Anti-Dark Circle Roller I used an eye cream, Smashbox Photo Op, and an under eye concealer. Now I only have to use one product.
Garnier claims that not only will this product cover your dark circles but that it will also help create better circulation under the eyes helping to improve the appearance of dark circles. I've used this for almost a month now and my dark circles are just the same. It really doesn't help in that sense, it really just covers up the problem. It bothers me that they had to mention that because now I feel like it didn't work to it's full potential. They should have just said that it conceals and brightens. Maybe it does help others with their dark circles but it didn't work for me.
Another tiny issue I have with this roller is that only those with light to medium skin tone could use this. I'm doubt the tint would work for those with darker skin. Its always disappointing when a good product is limited to only certain people. Everyone should at least get a chance to use this.
I definitely recommend giving Garnier Skin Renew Anti-Dark Circle Eye Roller a try.
