Garnier Caffeine Eye Roll-on

My friend Kirsty, over at More of Me, posted about a new skincare routine she had started a few weeks ago and it got me thinking that I don't use my eye cream as often as I should. I've heard some fantastic things about the Garnier Caffeine Eye Roll-on so I went and picked one up and have been using it for the past two weeks. Here's the link to Kirsty's Skin Care Routine over on her fabulous blog; make sure you check it out!

I have seen the price of this eye roll-on range from as little as £4 right up to £9.99, so shop around. You can pick it up at the usual places: supermarkets, Boots, Superdrug, chemists and I'm sure I saw it in Home Bargains once. It is a plastic tube with a metal rollerball on top and a screw cap lid.  The box is great, very informative as most Garnier products tend to be and a nice clean design, but the tube is quite cheap looking. It's green with a clear lid and two stickers; one with 'Garnier Roll-on' and the other with the capacity amount (15ml), the expiry after opening (6 months) and the Garnier website. Had the stickers been printed onto the tube rather than stickers, which were starting to peel off upon opening, I don't think it would looked quite as cheap; it's a nice shaped tube though and it fits comfortably in your hand.

The Caffeine Roll-on claims to reduce the appearance of dark bags and circles with the use of caffeine and anti-oxidant grape extract. The massage action from the metal rollerball is formulated to encourage drainage around the eye area. After just two weeks, I have noticed a difference with the skin around my eyes, in fact, after my first application I noticed a difference. My eyes seem more open and bright and the skin under my eyes is definitely looking more youthful and smooth. I'd never really suffered from dark circles around the eyes, but for just over a year now, I have been working night shifts on a weekend and my sleeping pattern has been all over the place. Unfortunately, this meant I started to notice dark circles and these are already starting to look reduced. The feeling of the cool metal rollerball is so refreshing, it's actually quite addictive. The roll-on is extremely easy to apply, just roll it under your eyes and pat in any excess (do not drag the skin in this area as it is very delicate).

I have really enjoyed using this product for the last two weeks and I plan on using it daily going forward. Even if I can only find it for £9.99, I think it's worth the money.

Has an eye roll-on made it into your skincare routine yet? Let me know what you think of this one or any others you have used.
