Olay Regenerist Anti-Aging Eye Roller

Olay Regenerist Anti-Aging Eye Roller
Price: $19.99
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!

  1. I've never tried an eye roller but it sounds great ! :)

    Thanks for the review,

  2. Sure! Between the two, I do prefer Clinique's. The formula and the metal rollerballs work better. But Olay does have that clicker on the end that doles out just enough product! Let me what you think, if you end up purchasing one!
