Fabulous Find: Garnier BB Eye Roll-On

I’m here to talk about my most recent fabulous find:  The Garnier BB Eye Roll-On!

I first heard of this innovative beauty product back in April of this year from Nikki Tiu of Ask Me Whats (one of the many blogs I follow).  About a month after that, I read a few more positive reviews and more beauty bloggers raving about it.  So, I went ahead and bought one for myself out of curiosity.

The first time, I must admit, I didn’t feel the urge to purchase one because I wasn’t in need of another under-eye concealer, as that was my first impression of what the product basically is.  However, since many of the beauty experts I respect have been swearing by it, I thought I’d give it a try… and I’m very happy I did because now, it’s part of my never-leave-home-without-it beauty must-haves.

According to Garnier, this 1st BB Eye Roll-On in the world will give you instant radiance in a single application.  It’s enriched with brightening Pure Lemon Essence and caffeine, which is well-known for its stimulating properties on micro-circulation.  The mineral pigments provide nude coverage and natural long-lasting wear.  It’s oil and fragrance free, does not clog pores, and is suitable for all skin types and tones.

These are the effects that you can expect to see around your eye contour area:

  • More fair
  • More radiant
  • More even-toned
  • Less dark circles
  • Less dark spots
  • More fresh
  • More smooth
  • Less tired
  • More hydrated
  • Firmer

It has a metal ball tip for easy roll-on application.


How Do You Use The Garnier BB Eye Roll-On?

Application of the Garnier BB Eye Roll-On is easy peasy!  Just roll the metal ball tip against the skin under your eyes.  (Pardon my totally-no-makeup look but for the purpose of this demo, I had to remove my eye makeup. Tiis-ganda muna!  In this case, magtiis sa pansamantalang kahihiyan, hahaha!).

Apply enough amount of the Garnier BB Eye Roll-On under the eye.

Then spread the product evenly under and around your eye contour area in small, gentle patting strokes, from the inner corner of your eye and out.  Do it again on the other eye.

Spread the product evenly.

And here you’ll notice the difference — my eye that has the Garnier BB Eye Roll-On is brighter and more even-toned than the one without it.  The dark circle around my other eye is still clearly visible.

My Observations

I love the consistency of the Garnier BB cream!  It’s non sticky  and feels very light on my skin.  It also has a cooling effect (perhaps because of the metal ball tip?) that instantly soothes my tired eyes.  The cream is very spreadable, so that a small amount is all I need with each application.  After a few hours, I didn’t see any caking or creasing around my eyes, so that’s another great thing about it.  It evens out the skin tone around my eye area very effectively, but with less coverage than what a regular concealer can give.  Sure, you can build it up (if you need more coverage) to achieve your desired results but it will still not give a very thick coverage.

The smart packaging makes it so easy for you to slip it even into a tiny purse, and just as easy to pull it out and use when you need a touch-up.


My Conclusion

I highly recommend this product not just to women who are constantly on the go and need a quick beauty fix every now and then, or those who work nights and are more prone to having dark circles around their eyes.  I recommend this to anyone who simply wants to brighten their eye area a little bit for a more refreshed, well-rested look.  If you’re looking for a product that will provide more concealing for your eye bags or dark circles under your eyes, you may try putting on a thin layer of concealer on top of the Garnier BB Eye Roll-On, which I tried doing one time and I was very pleased with the results.  In any case, I think this is one product that every woman will truly benefit from; and for only less than P300, this is a great little product that gives you plenty of bang for the buck.
