Drugstore Discovery of the Week: Garnier’s Roller Derby
When Garnier came out with its Skin Renew Anti-Puff Eye Roller a few years back, I was instantly hooked. It was immediately soothing to my super-sensitive eye area, able to eradicate even the most stubborn, wee-hours-revelry-induced puffiness, and, perhaps most thrillingly, a total bargain—which actually matters, considering there’s one permanently perched on my desk. Now Garnier is trying to make me fall in love all over again, this time with its new Skin Renew Anti-Dark-Circle Roller, which launches in July at drugstores near you. The cooling roller-ball delivery system is identical to its beloved predecessor, but the mission is different: Instead of puffiness, this one camouflages dark under-eye circles, like, really, really well. The formula uses a mix of caffeine and lemon to smooth and brighten raccoon eyes, and lightly tinted mineral pigments to conceal them. And while it may share the highlighting properties of a certain French luxury brand’s cult-favorite click pen, at $12.99, it’s a lot easier to buy in bulk.
