Olay Regenerist Anti-Aging Eye Roller
Where To Find: Most drugstores (CVS, Target)
Since I bought Clinique's All About Eyes Serum De-Puffying Eye Massage, all of a sudden, I started seeing drugstore brands come out with their version (ok, I don't really know which debuted first, but either way, I just started noticing the other versions out there as soon as I bought Clinique's). Among the three out in stores (that I'm aware of), Clinique's product is still the most expensive. I decided to try Olay's Regenerist Anti-Aging Eye Roller to see if the drugstore brands hold up in this competition for best de-puffying massage rollers.
1. Contains pretty much the same ingredients as Clinique's
2. It's cheaper (by about $5-6 at most)
3. To dole out just the right amount of serum, the roller has a clicking mechanism at its end.
4. Like Clinique's, it does minimize the look of the tiny lines and puffiness.
1. I'm not a fan of the three mini metal rollerballs. It actually reduces the cooling effect that a single metal roller (like Clinique's) does.
2. I find that the serum doesn't absorb and/or dry up as fast as Clinique's
Which do I prefer? I still like Clinique's massage roller. The cooling effect of the metal ball and the serum works well on my skin; the feeling of the cool metal ball immediately refreshes my eyes. But it's not like Olay's version is miles behind Clinique's. For $6 cheaper, it still does its job.
Remember that these products provide immediate relief and only lessen the look of fine lines and puffiness. A good night's sleep and water are two simple ways to fix under-eye problems.
Look out for a post on another massage roller and how it compares with the competition, Garner Nutrioniste skin Renew Daily Eye Roller!
