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…)
