Garnier Caffeine Anti-dark Circles 2-in-1 Roll-on

Dark circles are the bane of my life and no amount of sleep ever seems to help so I was very pleased to be sent this product to try.


This product claims to immediately reduce dark circles, camflouge and reduce the appearance of bags and give the eye contour an illuminated, hydrated and smoother appearance.

I am quite impressed with its ability to reduce my dark circles, they describe it as a tinted concealer and I think that sums it up perfectly. Its not as full coverage as my MAC concealer but it helps to neutralise the horrible purple colour so that the dark circles are less visible. Its a thin liquid and I've not had any problems with it caking or settling into any fine lines.

I've been using it over my usual eye cream, and because its so light I've not had any problems with product overload. It also lasts quite well as I've not felt the need to touch up during the day.

One thing that I'm not keen on is the fact that this product contains alcohol, which can dry out the skin although I've not noticed any dryness around the eye area since I started using the roll-on.

What I like best about this product is how easy it is to apply and how portable it is. I simply apply some under my eyes and then blend with my finger. I find it quicker and easier to use than my concealers especially when I'm running late and have to do my make up in 2 mins!

For reference I'm usually a MAC NC25 and the fair shade is a near perfect match.
