Product Spotlight: Eye Rollers

hard candy eye'm tired garner yes to blueberries eye rollers comparison reviews
I recall there was a lot of hype when the Garnier Skin-Renew Anti Dark Circle Eye Roller ($12) first came out (along with its tinted counterpart). Then a lot of other brands started to come out with their own eye rollers. But what do they really do? Right off the bat I'll tell you this: I don't notice any brightening effects. Be it because I don't have serious under eye darkness or because these just aren't effective at reducing it, the biggest benefit (for me) that products like these have is that they soothe and reduce puffiness. Most, if not all, are formulated with caffeine. If you don't suffer from puffiness you might not notice a difference but you still might like these because of how nice they feel under the eyes. The metal roller balls feel cold against the skin and serve as a nice morning under eye massage and pick-me-up. Out of these three, my favorite is the Hard Candy Eye'M Tired ($5). Not only does it have a "punny" name, but it also absorbs the quickest and leaves no residue. Plus it's the most affordable one. The Garnier Skin-Renew Roller works similarly, but I prefer the Hard Candy applicator because it has three roller balls instead of one. My least favorite, and the one I recommend you stay away from, is the Yes To Blueberries Brightening Eye Roller ($20). It's the most expensive of the bunch and has the worst roller applicator. The roller ball gets stuck and tugs on the delicate under eye skin.

Let me know if eye rollers are part of your skincare/makeup routine. Which one is your favorite?

  1. I was considering buying eye rollers but now I might just look for home remedies for my circled, sleep deprived eyes! Thanks for the review! :) x

    1. They're nice, like a novelty, but I'm sure there are better remedies for darkness out there x

  2. I've tried the one from Garnier, and I liked it. I didn't love it though, so I never repurchased it. I know just keep my eye creams in the fridge so that they have the same cooling effect as an eye roller.

    1. Yes and there's also an eye crew from L'Oreal that has a metal applicator so it gives the same cooling effect. I love it. xx

  3. I used to use the Garnier one, and though I didn't really notice a difference in how my eyes looked, it just felt so refreshing :) I keep hearing great things about Hard Candy... I'll have to see where I can get their products!

  5. There's been so much hype about rollers, I've always been quite skeptical of them.. Still, the Hard Candy one does look like a good treat to myself! I'll check out my local Walmart for them. x

  7. I love using eye rollers, they're always so refreshing in the morning. I didn't realise Yes To Blueberries did one, such a shame it wasn't very good, the other two sound worth trying though x

  8. I've owned one by Simple and I currently use one by Shu Uemura. The Simple one is absolutely HORRIBLE - it actually dries out my skin and does nothing for the puffiness under my eyes. The Shu Uemura is better, though it's not a miracle worker (I have seriously puffy eyes).
