First Aid Beauty Detox Eye Roller Review: A Lot of Under Eye Goodness in a Little Bottle

First Aid Beauty Detox Eye Roller
When it comes to eye creams, I'm all about plumping everything up and making it look less wrinkly and swollen. Really, it is amazing what a little moisture will do to the under eye area! I hate looking tired, and it seems that I'm really prone to it. All the concealer in the world isn't enough to cover up my under eye issues, but a good eye primer can hide a lot of my faults and makes my concealer application better.

The Detox Eye Roller is a small glass bottle (it holds 10 mL, which is about 1/3 ounce) of a clear liquid. Really, it feels like slightly thick water. It comes out of a metal roller top, which you're meant to roll over the under eye area. I've been suspicious of the eye product roller application in the past (like here), though I do like this applicator. I'm still not sure that the ball really does much with redistributing lymph like FAB says, but it does help greatly with proper application (I'm sure without it I would be using about 3-4 weeks worth of product at a go), and with the roller I'm much more gentle on the area than I would be with a finger tip.

The liquid is light and it disappears really quickly into my skin. There's no residue and no greasy feeling left behind, and it doesn't interfere with makeup application. I do like to have a little bit more of a creamy/lotion typically in this area to smooth my concealer application, but it doesn't seem to really matter with this eye liquid (I don't know what to call it. It isn't a cream...)

Ingredients:
Water (Aqua), Glycerin, Hamamelis Virginiana (Witch Hazel) Water, Butylene Glycol, Sodium Hyaluronate, Camellia Sinensis (White Tea) Leaf Extract, Chrysanthemum Parthenium (Feverfew) Extract, Glycyrrhiza Glabra (Licorice) Root Extract, Palmitoyl Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein, Palmitoyl Oligopeptide, Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide-7, Ethoxydiglycol, Polysorbate 20, Caffeine, Menthyl Lactate, PEG-12 Dimethicone, Aminomethyl Propanol, Carbomer, Benzoic Acid, Caprylyl Glycol, Phenoxyethanol, Mica (CI 77019), Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891)


So, really here's where the best info is! In that ingredient list you'll find:
Moisture (temporarily plumps stuff up, making it look smoother and fine lines less obvious): Glycerin, Sodium Hyaluronate
Antioxidants: White Tea Extract
Peptides: Palmitoyl Oligopeptide, Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide-7
Anti-Inflammatory: Feverfew (also decreases redness), Licorice Root
Brightening: Licorice Root (decreases melanin production)
Tightening: Caffeine

I love the idea of rollers for under eye products but I hadn't tried any yet. I tent to apply way more than recommended too just because so much comes out of tubes. Sounds like this is a good product, thanks I'll check it out.

Thanks for the summary. I saw this the other day and was wondering how well it works. Guess I need to try it out now.

I'm approaching my 30th birthday, and have been more interested in anti-aging products lately (for obvious reasons!). This looks like a nice, gentle product. Great review!
