Review & Swatch: Garnier Instant Fairness BB Eye Roll On

Concealing or finding cure for dark circles is a constant war for most of us. All thanks to stress from our everyday, irregular diet & lack of beauty sleep. So i'm always willingly to jump into products that offers temporary remedy for these issues. Garnier is one of the brand i'm into lately ever since i got hooked onto one of their roller pen for acne.

While in HK i picked this Garnier Instant Fairness BB Eye Roll On off the Watsons rack as its Garnier latest product targetting on dark circle. FYI, this product has a different name in UK.



According to the website, its a 2 in 1 formula that works as a skincare + cosmetics. How wonder it may sounds so read on....


On the packaging its stated that the product is 10 in 1 rather different than the UK website.


Here's the list of what it claim to do:
  1. Fairer
  2. More Radiant
  3. More even-toned
  4. with less dark circles
  5. With less dark spots
  6. Fresher
  7. Smoother
  8. Less tired
  9. More hydrated
  10. Tighten

Ingredient list





The product is housed in a champagne goldish kind of plastic tube


Label to remind you that it should be consumed within 6 months


The same kind of roller pen mechanism used for their roller pen range of product.




Swatch: Its yellowish shade (i swatch it by gliding it on the back of my palm in one stroke)


After blending it on my skin

Price: SGD22.90/HKD129
Content: 15ml
Review:
I would say this work more like a corrector to me than conceal. The moisturizing content is lacking as my side of the world is summer all year round. Definitely need something with much higher content in hydrating to make it works. It does correct the tone of my skin near the eye area to a satisfactory level i guess (based on the pics above). Minimal conceal is required before stepping out of house for sure on full working day. But on normal leisure weekend, i could choose to pull off a natural look just by using this for my eye area. As for the value added 10 in 1 functions i do notice it does delivered a few, what do you think.

Will i re-purchase? probably...

  1. I think that the Bobbi Brown concealer is the magic bullet, lol! But it's cheaper than the Estee Lauder Idealist Cooling Eye Illuminator, which I love.

  3. This looks good, although I think it would accentuate my under eye bags than hide them because the consistency is so thin. But I think it'd work nicely on dark circles. Thank you for the review!
