I’m SO tired. So much to do around here lately with Marky leaving. AND my hubby SNORES. Not all night long, but the noise usually starts around 6 or 7 AM. And if the snores wake me up-I’m UP. I’m not one of those people that can easily fall back asleep when there’s noise around. Needless to say, my dark circles are having a hey day right now.
And the thing is, as I get older? Heavy concealers are NOT a good idea. All they do is just highlight every line and wrinkle under my eyes, so no thank you!
So what’s an aging, tired, Beauty Blogger to do?
She tries Garnier BB Eye Miracle Skin Perfector($19.99), that’s what she does! Garnier BB Eye Miracle Skin Perfector contains Haloxyl to treat under-eye bags and dark circles. And it has mineral pigments to even out skin tone and brighten that dark, tired under-eye area.
It has one of those roller ball dispensers that gently massages and cools the under-eye area.
To be honest, I’m not a huge fan of this rollerball applicator. It’s a waste of time. It doesn’t really do anything except make it harder to apply the product. I end up just squeezing some out and applying it with my finger.
Swatchy Time! This is the fair/light shade which is a nice, brightening peachy colour.
And that colour does a great job in helping my under eye area look so much better these days!
Garnier BB Eye Miracle Skin Perfector is supposed to:
- reduce under eye bags and circles-check! I’d say it does a decent job of that!
- erases sings of fatigue-check again!
- smoothes fine lines-sort of. It’s a nice thin consistency, so it’s easy to spread. But at my age it’s hard to find ANYTHING that doesn’t start to settle a bit into them fine lines. But this ain’t all that bad!
- brightens the eye contour-yup! Check again! Looks brighter to me!
- Moisturizes 24 hours-and I’d have to say close on this one. Since I’ve been using this, my under-eye area does feel more hydrated. But whether it moisturizes for 24 hours or not, I can’t really tell.
Garnier BB Eye Miracle Skin Perfector doesn’t completely cover my dark circles, but I actually LIKE that. Like I’ve said before, I’m not into looking perfect. Just a better version of me. And this little drugstore gem is doing a pretty decent job of helping me look less tired! And the one thing that I really like? Is that it doesn’t cake up, or flake up on me as the day goes on. I’m an eye rubber. Been one my whole life. And yeah, I know it’s a bad habit. But I could have worse ones, right? And when I rub my eyes when I’m tired, Garnier BB Eye Miracle Skin Perfector doesn’t rub off or ball up on me, so for me it’s a WIN. And I find I don’t have to set it with some kind of even more line-ehancing powder for it to last, so win, WIN!
Garnier BB Eye Miracle Skin Perfector can be found at pretty much all major retailers across Canada right now. The only con I have is the price. I sure wish it was around $10-$12 instead. Garnier is really getting expensive yo! Drop the useless rollerball and make it cost less Monsieur Garnier! You’re not curing cancer, right? Hahaha, that’s one of my fave Mitchell & Webb sketches!
What’s your favourite under-eye concealer at the moment?
