Today the Reader Review Panel peeps are revealing what they thought about Garnier Skin Naturals Youthful Radiance Anti-Dark Circles Roll-On ($18.95) . . .
"Great product. I was sceptical that it would work, but found out that my eyes look less tired in the mornings as I head off to work. It even helps to reduce the fine lines and wrinkles and blends in with my other makeup."

"I've really wanted to try this. The first thing I noticed was the very informative and lovely packaging and the easy to hold and apply roll-on. The first time I used it I was really surprised at the result. I thought that it may be too dark for my fair skin, but it wasn't. It was just the right colour. I felt an immediate cooling and relaxing effect and it easily and gently rolled on and smoothed my under-eye area. I had no darkness at all and I felt great. My eyes really look great when I use the roll-on, there is nothing I don't like about this product! I would recommend it to anyone with dark circles or puffy eyes, you won't regret it."

"To start, can I just say, I love a roll-on. When applying, you avoid wasting product and you keep the product safe from contaminants (no finger dipping). This is especially important to me for product I place around my eyes. The lightweight formula blends in beautifully, giving just the right amount of coverage. And the 2-in-1 benefits of treatment plus concealer . . . just brilliant. My under-eye area appears less puffy and the dark shadows minimised. Why didn’t anyone think of this before?!"
"What a fantastic product! The roller ball is cool when you apply it to your skin and the consistency is fluid and thin, which is perfect for blending into the under-eye area. I found that because the treatment concealer wasn't too thick, I could use this throughout the day to brighten up my eye area. I was surprised how effectively it reduced my dark circles; this product holds its own against more expensive dark circle treatments I've tried and I'm certainly going to keep using it!"

"I put it on over my usual foundation and it blended into my foundation seamlessly. It felt a little bit tacky after I blended it but a touch of powder fixed all that. I don’t really know if my bags were lifted in anyway, but they certainly were hidden. The only issue I have is that the product did not come out of the applicator evenly; I had smudges under my eyes and it took longer than regular concealer to blend in. Overall it’s handy to have and hides bags better than my regular concealer."
"I’ve always thought it would be great if Garnier came out with a product like their puffy eye roll-on to cover dark circles and voila – they did! After a big night out or if I haven’t had enough sleep, puffiness isn’t my problem, but dark circles are. I need something a little more than my regular foundation and heavy coverstick for that delicate eye area. Not only does the tinted roll-on provide coverage but it also has a moisturiser with sunscreen as well. And if that weren’t enough it they’ve put a little kick in – they’ve added caffeine for its stimulating properties and lemon essence, which is known for its clarifying properties, both of which help reduce the signs of fatigue. Love! Needlesss to say this is now a staple in my makeup bag."
Here's what Dazychain thought of it:
"To put simply, the Garnier Anti-Dark Circle Roll-On is el perfecto. I’ve trialled every under-eye concealer there is, not to mention countless eye creams, and nothing seems to give such immediate results. The lightweight, creamy texture is right on the money and leaves your eye area hydrated rather than cakey, and I love how convenient the roll pen is to use. I keep one at home and in my handbag at all times! Believe the hype, this little wonder pen is a god send."
"I was a massive fan of Garnier’s original roll-on so when I heard about the new one that contained concealer too, I was excited, but worried it wouldn’t live up to the hype. As soon as I tried it, I knew it was just as good, if not better. I suffer BADLY from dark under-eye circles but one or two rolls of this and they’re instantly gone. The applicator makes it so easy to apply and it blends in really easily. Plus, it’s under $20!! Bargain!! I’d recommend it to anyone."
MissCharlieBrown had this to say:
"I was reluctant to try this product because it seemed a little gimmicky. But a friend raved about it, so I thought I’d give it a whirl. I’d love to say that the product worked wonders—unfortunately after a few weeks of using it once a day, I’ve noticed no real difference in my under eye circles. On the plus side, the roll-on does have a lovely cooling effect, making it a greta under-eye treatment."
"I really like this product! I naturally have darker skin under my eyes and I found that this product really helped to even the skin colouration. It works really well as a concealer and also to hydrate the skin under my eyes. The roll-on part of it does not work too well. You have to squeeze or shake it to get the colour to come out. It is a product that I will keep using, my only suggestion would be to change or improve the roll on part."

"I'm a bit sceptical about any product that claims to remove dark circles under your eyes, but after trailing this product the dark circles under my eyes do appear to be lighter and less puffy. But what I love most about this product is that it’s also a fantastic concealer. It feels really nice to apply with a milky consistency, while still giving really good coverage. I will definitely continue using this product, and since it does two things in one, it means one less thing I need in my make up bag which is great!"
"This is an amazing product, I can't believe someone didn't think of it sooner. It's an eye cream and concealer in one compact little tube. For people like me with dark circles, this is a must have. It applies lightly, doesn't sink into fine lines, hydrates and covers my dark circles. What's even better about it is that, as it's so light in texture, I can reapply it during the day without it caking or creasing. This has been great for my dry Winter skin, keeping my eyes hydrated and dark circle-free. If you haven't already tried this, I highly recommend it."
