Garnier Eye Roll On Pen Review

Garnier Light Eye Roll-On

Garnier Light Eye Roll-On is another Garnier product that I am totally in love with. Since I was a night owl during my school days I used stay awake the whole night during exams and eventually that resulted in dark circles. Though I didn’t mind it for a very long period of time, lately I realized that was a big minus and it was very obvious in my face as well. So I just picked this product randomly to try it out. I have this with me for couple of years and I am very much satisfied with its effect on my dark circles.

What does the product claim?

The formula is enriched with pro-vitamin B5 for it’s hydrating properties. Caffeine contained into Garnier Light Eye Roll-On is from synthetic origin. Garnier massage reduces puffiness and dark circles and brightens the eye contour. Massage is a technique used by experts to boost natural draining and decongest tired eyes. The formula, enriched with caffeine, known for its stimulating properties on micro-circulation, helps to brighten the skin and boost radiance.


  • Immediate cooling effect to decongest puffy eyes.
  • In 14 days skin looks brighter and more radiant.
  • In 28 days eye puffiness and dark circles are reduced.

How to use?

  • Apply Garnier Light Eye Roll-on to the eye contour area immediately after waking up.
  • Apply in light circular massaging movements. The liquid will be applied automatically via the roller ball. If necessary, smooth in any remaining liquid with your fingertips.
  • Use anytime during the day whenever eyes feel tired or puffy.
  • Products have been dermatologically tested to ensure respect to your skin.

I have been using this product for a while and I am very much satisfied that given other alternatives I will still stick on to this. The roll-on is in the shape and size of a pen and hence very compact.

Size of a Pen

The tip of the roll on has a metal finish and when we apply it around the eye area, the liquid with the metal gives a chillness that is very soothing for tired eyes.

Metal Tip

Since I spend most of the time in front of my PC this tiny thing will accompany me the whole day. The roll-on is brightly colored in yellow, which is another attractive factor about it. I use it once in the morning after bath and again in the night before I sleep. It leaves a wet look as soon as you apply it but that doesn’t last long. The wetness stays for around 5 mins and this is one reason that I don’t apply it at any other time of the day. Applying it just twice a day shows great results. I can see visible difference in a weeks time. Since I usually don’t get puffy eyes, that has never been a trouble but the dark circles were always a problem, until I found this roll-on.

What I love about this roll-on?

  • The liquid is very light on the skin and the skin quickly absorbs it.
  • Roll-on is very compact and hence easy to carry around.
  • It lasts for a very long time. I use it twice a day and I buy a roll-on to last for more than 6 months.
  • Easy to apply as it is in a slim tube with a flexible roll-on at the edge.
  • I love the chillness and the soothing feel it gives when I apply it.
  • The effects are clearly visible within a reasonable period of time.
  • It costs around Rs.200. I don’t remember the exact price but I feel it is worth for the price.
  • Packaging is really bright and attractive.
  • Easily available in any drug store.
  • Caffeine in this roll-on really does help reduce dark circles and puffiness and it is very effective.
  • It doesn’t show any side effects and it just does what it claims.

What I don’t like about this roll-on?

  • Though the results are visible the effect doesn’t last long. I apply this roll-on and once I feel my dark circle is gone I will stop using it. The next day if I had to stay awake for a while dark circles appear immediately. So I have to use this product almost everyday.
  • The tube is not transparent and hence we can’t find how much is left for use. Every time I will come to know that the roll-on is over only on the day I rub it under my eyes and find nothing coming out.

Rating – :-*:-*:-*:-*

Would I repurchase – Yes, for sure.

I recommended this product to my friend just before her wedding. She had dark circles as well and this helped her a lot. She was very glad and even I was able to notice a clear and light under eye area.

  5. I’ve been used this 2 months now.. its nice. But what I felt is that when you stop using it the circles come back, so its more like a maintainer rather than a treatment… but then again I sleep very less around 😛 5 hours a night

  6. You’ve got pretty eyes Deeptima do maintain it, everyone is not blessed so. This product will really help u.

  7. You know I was looking for something with caffeine for my under eye area. I tred the MAC under eye cream for puffiness (can’t remember the name) . that day I had puffiness under my eyes and it worked so well. they told me that it’s the caffeine in the cream that works wonders for reducing puffiness. I guess I will pick this one up instead. Sasta, sunder and tiakaao option.

    Thank you so much for the review. 🙂

    I was thinking of whether to get this or not..a.nd will definitely get it now!

    1. Hi Kala, it is easily available here in India. Sorry I have no idea about SriLanka. My guess is if you get Garnier products easily there then getting this shouldn’t be a problem.

    Thnx a lot for the review.

      1. I meant it is a carcinogen Aarthi. It is proven. :alien: used for DNA separation in labs and it is a very dangerous chemical…Thanks for the reply.. :yes:

  10. Hey, I just bought this today. I’ve got really bad dark circles for a long time now and was scared to try any products on my face since I’m scared it’ll cause a reaction. But I was getting sick of meeting people and them telling me I looked like I hadn’t slept in weeks! So I went out and bought this today, and well your blog really helped me get rid of any worries I had. Thanks! 🙂
