Garnier 2 in 1 Tinted Eye Roll-On Review

Good evening Ladies,

I'm always on a quest to look brighter, more awake (and alive - especially at work!), and so the latest product i've encountered to help me in my mission is this:

To  be honest i'm not not what the exact name of this product is as there is information overload on the front of the box, but for the moment i'm going for "2 in 1 tinted eye roll-on"!

A "sister" product of the original Garnier Nutritionist Caffeine eye roll-on (in the green tube), the original formula now comes with a tint and a UV filter, providing you with the option to not only "treat" under eye puffiness and bags, but to conceal dark circles at the same time.

What Garnier say: It is our 1st roll-on massage which combines a caring formula with natural ingredients and a long lasting tinted concealer as effective as make-up. The formula, along with the massaging ball, offers a complete solution to tired eyes and dark circles and bags.

I had always quite fancied trying this, but (being the tight-wad that I sometimes am!) I couldn't quite justify the RRP of £9.99 for 15ml, so when I saw it on special offer in (surprise, surprise) Tesco for £6.49 it quickly got put in the basket!

I have to say i'm really pleased with my purchase. I like the fact they have produced a tint for fairer skin tones along with three other shades (whereas the previous supposedly "universal" colour was a lot darker and not quite as adaptable), and when used it provides a really lovely illuminating effect, which I have to say is not too dissimilar to the famous YSL Touche Eclat. You literally need one roll of the roller ball under each eye (to go back and forth a few times would be too much!) to get a generous amount of coverage, and you can instantly feel a definite lifting and tightening of the skin and it feels really lovely and refreshing first thing in the morning.

First thing in the morning I apply my usual facial moisturiser and under eye moisturiser (currently Boots vitamin E), then my foundation and finally this tinted roll on for the concealing effect. It's just as long lasting as my previous MAC concealer I was using, and I reckon it will last a looooooong time because you only need to use a little at a time.

Thumbs up from me - it can't be the UK's number one eye treatment for nothing!

  1. Hi Zara,
    you could use this at night (there's nothing to say you can't!) but as it has a concealer in it, I would imagine it has been designed more as a day product - it's entirely up to you though! x
