Product Review: Garnier Light BB Eye Roll-On

Tuesday, June 12, 2012

     If there's one thing I hate when I wake up in the morning and I looked in the mirror: my under eyes-ze eye bags that is dark and puffy. This is the obvious reason if you haven't completed your sleep or should I say the wake-up-sleep-wake-up pattern. I don't know how to call it sorry for the term XD. The only reason I always experience sleepless nights is due to my son's sleeping pattern. I know, I've mention this before on my blog posts and it's like the nth time that I'll brag about it. Both hubby and I wanted to change this erratic sleeping pattern of our son but again, it keeps on adjusting every week. My son is lucky even though he's wide awake at night and sleeping on a hot summer day, his eye bags are still the same. My eyes are the ones suffering from dark circles and puffiness. 

     I always hide my dark under eyes with a concealer. But the problem with some concealers that I've tried creases big time with my fine lines when not set properly. There's also a time when the concealer is very obvious and looks unnatural. It's time consuming and bank breaking for a cheapskate like me to have a separate concealer and eye setting powder. If I'll go out to do errands, I just put my makeup in five minutes. So having a decent concealer that's budget-friendly will be the prefect solution for a practical mom like me.

     Thank you Garnier for bringing bb cream into an under eye roll-on. The moment I saw this product at Watson's last December, I decided to bring it home. Of course I paid for it :D After six months of daily usage, here's another keeper!

Garnier Light BB Eye Roll-On
Swatch on my hand, this time with flash on. Consistency is creamy and easy to blend.
Garnier Light BB Eye Roll-OnThe flash is soo reflective, I hope you can still see the problem area including my freckles.

Tada!!! Bright under eye and partially concealed my freckles.
What I like:
  • The price- for a cheapskate like me, it's budget-friendly.
  • Easy peasy application because of the roller ball technology.
  • Instantly brightens my under eye.
  • Can conceal minor imperfections surrounding my eyes.
  • The product spreads easily and gives a natural look.
  • There's a relaxing feel after each application because of the metal roller ball.
  • Works for most skin tone, I tried this on my sister who has a medium skin tone.
  • There's a batch and manufacturing date printed on the box
  • No overpowering scent.
  • Easily accessible
What I don't like:
  • The packaging- it is housed in an opaque plastic, I can't see how many product is left inside.
  • There were times that I cannot control how much product the roller ball dispenses.
  • May crease if I forgot to moisturize the skin around my under eye.
Will I repurchase? Yes!!!

     I give this a 5/5 rating. Even though there were times that it settle in my fine lines, I still love it.   It's not noticeable so I don't need to worry. If you have very dark under eyes, I suggest you to use your heavy duty concealer first. 

Have you tried using Garnier products? Share your thoughts! Take Care, Garnier :D

Good Times!~


  1. Wow! nice review!! I've seen this couple of times sa watson's but they didn't have tester as I'm quite hesitate with the shade. Do they have other shades? or 1 lng? Thanks! ^_~

  2. I've always wondered if this product works. I wanted to buy it but I hesitate when i'm already at the Garnier stall. LOL I have too many products to finish so if ever i will buy something, it should work. This review is really reassuring and might probably make me buy this when I visit the mall soon! :P

  3. great review :) i love garnier rollers but haven't tried this one coz i use bb cream on my eye-bags hehe
    ~aiMee/aMz, <3

  4. @Janet- Thanks dear :D About the shade, the time I saw it sa Watson's only on shade and it's light. When I searched sa google, it has 4 shades kaya lang sa ibang countries pa lang yata available.

    @Dawn- Yup Dawn, I really like this and highly recommended.

    @aMz88- Thanks, I also use BB cream sa under eye pag sobrang puyat then papatungan ko pa ng Garnier.

  5. Interesting. Will give this a try nga. Tamad kasi ako magconcealer, ang hirap magblend. Baka mas okay to.

  6. @Bee- try this! I higly recommend this. Madali lang i-blend :)

  7. I haven't tried any Garnier product. Shame on me. Haha!
