Garnier: "Can I help you with those suitcases?"

Warning: This post includes a hideous pre makeup photo. Please bear this in mind!

I bought the Garnier Caffine Anti Dark Circles about 2 months ago when boots and it on offer, I think it was 2 for about £12. At the time I'd been using Touche Macique by L'oreal and although this was doing the job I'm a sucker for a gimmick so the cooling ball called out to me.





I bought mine in light but I think they do a very light, a medium, and a dark. The application is easy and you really do feel a cooling effect on your eyes, sort of like the time I put cucumbers all over my face as a child. I purchased this with the intention of banishing dark circles on an early morning as I don't really have much of an issue with puffyness, but if you do Garnier say this is supposed to "hydrate" tired looking eyes. IF you've read the little warning above you know what's coming, if you've missed it look away now



Gross. But as you can probably see it has reduced the suitcases under my eyes quite well. I usually dab the concealer under my eye, add a bit of foundation, then roll some more concealer on. I can still see a bit of darkness but all in all I'm quite happy with the results, I just need to find a super strong concealer to go over the top for groggier mornings. I don't think it's on offer anymore but I just had a look at Superdrug's site and they're selling it for £6.80 which I suppose is better as you don't have to commit to two.

Has anyone else used this? Is the roll on without the added concealer any good?

In other news I've spent today giving myself blisters washing my clothes over the bath after the estate agesnts refused to fix my washing machine. Glamorous goings on in my flat today!

  10. I had a sample of this in light when it first came out but it was far too dark :( I'm glad they've introduced very light as I could do with something to tackle my suitcases!

  13. I got this really cheap in Tesco a while back but I don't really notice much difference with it. Saying that I use Maybelline 'The Eraser' foundation which doubles up as a concealer too xx

    half the world away.
