Strongest points
Roller ball feels cool against the skin
Weakest points
Colour matching is all wrong, did not suit my skin type, either too light or dark.
Did not do anything for dark circles long term.
Summary
I bought this thinking it would help conceal the dark circles I have from having a newborn.
However, I was so wrong, which is shocking for Garnier.

The roller ball was easy enough to use, dispensed enough product and the roller ball itself is very cooling.

I found I had to massage the product in with a finer as it was quite noticeable that I had used something around my eyes. I ended up having to put foundation on just to cover it up. I was hoping I could use it on my make up free days.

The colour match was all wrong for me, it was either too light or too dark.

It did hide some of the darkness, but not enough like a concealer would.

In the long run, my eyes were still dark regardless of using this daily.

Wouldn't recommend.

I use this every day. It has a cooling effect and I like the roll on metal ball. It is easy to blend in and gives a great finish. I don't have bad dark circles, jst little shadows. I feel it does make a difference. I have also used as a concealer on small areas of my face, works well
I use mine every day and have had it for 6 months now and it is still going strong.
Weakest points
.You need to be careful how you apply as you can easily put too much on.
There is no way of telling how much you have left in the tube
Summary
A great under eye concealer with a cooling effect when you apply. Blends in easily with fingers. Feels light, does not clog or look cakey. Easy to take with you as it is not much bigger than a pen.

Strongest points
Because of the roll-on application this goes on very easily. Its absorbed quickly and the packaging is classy. It does the job as well as others I've tried, but no better.
Weakest points
Unfortunately its hard to cover all the areas - a brush would have been a better option.
Summary
This product is in line with all the others, not stand-out.

Strongest points
It is really easy to use with the roll on and it feel cool to the touch which is really refreshing. It's great for the days when you are in a hurry because it's super quick and easy to blend. I also like how it claims to help dark circles too because I have really bad dark circles, however I haven't noticed any differences when using it.
Weakest points
It has a really sheer coverage which doesn't cover dark circles that much. Also the lightest shade would not match very fair skin tones, and sometimes I'd use it on my face to cover hyperpigmentation and it can look dark and give the dark line.

I've used this product on and off for about 2 years now ( or there abouts)
I do not think this product is as good as it should be coming from garnier.
The colour match is the main problem I have with this item, being really fair I already struggle to find concealer type products to match my skin tone, and this really wasn't a good match considering I picked the lightest shade, my under eyes went rather orange.
I did however love the cooling effect this product had, and I have since purchased their similar product without the coloured concealer.
I do think that garniers pricing can be quite on the top end of the high street market.
