Most Helpful Positive Review Initial Review with Suggestions
I just started using this product and so far, I am enjoying it.
The product application is nice and the little roller ball glides effortlessly over the delicate under eye tissue. I don't feel an overwhelming "cooling" effect immediately upon contact but I do feel a cooling sensation that is mild and soothing but not cold or uncomfortable in any way. It might be beneficial to use swipe the eye area three or four times and then wait a while to let the product soak in and start working. I like instant results but sometimes that is totally unrealistic and impractical in terms of expectations. So, with that said, I shower, apply my moisturizer, roll the eye refresh under my eyes and then go make coffee. By the time I am back in front of the mirror (about five minutes) I do see some improvement in the puffiness around my lower lids. Too much salt, not enough sleep and other factors play a part in skin texture and such so keep that in mind ... this is not a miracle product ... it is a "refresher" and it delivers as it says. It is not a face lift or eye lift or concealer. Just remember the key word: REFRESH. It does.
I will re-visit this review page in a few weeks to report back but I am pretty sure I will buy this again (and again) for no other reason than it really helps with my morning routine. Cool, not sticky and a great way to prime under eye skin prior to under eye primer and concealer.
Most Helpful Critical Review Works for me
I think the effectiveness of this product really depends on the severity of your under eye circles and puffiness. I have what I would call medium to dark circles depending on how much sleep I've gotten and this works okay for me. It works better on puffiness rather than dark circles but I did notice a reduction in both. However I feel if you have relatively light circles the changes might not be as significant or noticeable and as far as I can understand you're supposed to use this at least two times a day for best results not just when you "need it". Either way though I like it and it really waked up my eyes.

mesalty from PA
This product is great as a way to refresh. I haven't used it long enough to see if it will have a noticeable change, but it feels great ... very soothing.
Product inage is outdated. I recieved black not silver.
YouBeSport from FL - Florida
I did not receive the product as shown. The one in the mail that was sent is black not white nor silver. This is bait and switch and false advertising. They need to update the product images. I like lighter colored items so I can clean them. I was expecting a chrome mettalic finish not a mette black. The serum has no scent, has no tacky stickiness, but does increase circulation and make my skin red from pressure but that quickly fades. I will be returning for a refund because it is not what I ordered. It comes in a carded box. It is a clear liquid.
Good morning fix
Jen from Michigan
I look like I have two black eyes every morning between allergies and lack of sleep. Roll this on with some face mist before you get ready helps reduce swelling instantly. Good price and works great!

Love how this makes my tired eyes feel so awake and cold!
Refreshing , Cooling, Nourishing, But...
OddModicum from Phoenix, AZ
So, I should say that Ive got hard core, dark, congenital under eye circles, courtesy of my Italian heritage, so my benchmark for an eye cream, now that Im in my mid 40s, is basically if there is ANY improvement to my undereye. Expecting miracles from a product then giving a poor review if it doesnt deliver said miracles doesnt help anyone. So I knew going in this wouldnt solve my undereye issue. It is very cooling and refreshing, with the clever metal rollerball applicator. And my undereye definitely felt nourished but not greasy, which is pretty awesome, especially if like me you need an eye cream thats not too heavy for under eye primer, Becca Color Corrector, and my handy dandy ELF 18 hour Hydrationg Concealor. Last thing I need under all those layers is a greasy eye cream. So in that way, this product is pretty snazzy.... a cooling eye serum for use under makeup. However, thats about all that it does. I did comparison with one eye teated and other eye not, and theres no discernible improvement in circles or bags with this eye gel. No immediate cosmetic gain, and over a week using 3x daily, no cumulative improvement. My puffiness is more improved with my regular Cetaphil eye cream or with LilyAna Naturals retinol cream or Roc vitamin E serum and my Popchose vibrating jade roller with under eye attachment... that stored in the fridge prior to use is great for bags. And my circles are what they are... good retinol and hyleronic acid creams give the most improvement that Ive seen. So if youre looking for a relaxing, cooling effect and nourished under eyes only at a great price point, this will rock your socks. But its definitely not a miracle gel for those of us who kinda need one to fix our under eye trainwreckery.
Lilly236 from Glen Rock, PA
Hi so I've bought this once and my sister has bought it a couple times. I love the metal roller ball that's used to apply the serum, it's cooling and relaxing...but the serum itself does not come out easily. And I mean it requires good effort to get the serum to come out...I find myself squeezing the stiff tube for a good minute or two before any comes out. Tried tonight and nothing will come out, squeezing hard and it's just hurting my fingers (haven't had it for more than a month).

I love this eye roller. Feels great on my skin and helps with under eye problems.
maddie1011 from undisclosed
I see no difference in my eyes when I use this product but it does wake me up a little
Nice cooling effect!
karimf from undisclosed
I've had this for a couple weeks, and I love it!!! It's my go-to under eye gel. Use it every day! Sometimes twice/3x day just because it feels so good applying. It takes the puffiness down! It is so cool and refreshing, and it's evened out the skin tone under my eyes, which is a plus! I look more awake! Love the roller ball!
ShanHam from Sacramento, CA
I have bought this product for a few years now. I love how it feels on my under eye. I also put it on my eyelid because they tend to get puffy. To be honest, I don't notice a huge difference in appearance but I love how it feels to apply it
Blondielulu from Raleigh, NC
I got this item and thought it would be a great addition to my morning skincare routine. I was so disappointed - the gel takes a lot of effort to come out, and feels like water. I've noticed no difference after 30 days of use, and get so frustrated in the mornings just trying to get the product to come out of the roller ball that I've given up on it.
super hydrating and def de-puffs the eyes instantly
Mimi from Texas
I have been wanting an eyeroller for a long time so once I saw that elf had this product it was a no brainer to test it out. It feels super hydrating and has good ingredients. It does not burn your eyes and has a cooling sensation. As soon as your eyes dry then you can go and apply your concealer.
Ken10 from TX
I bought this to help my dark under eye circles and it definitely does. Especially when you use it multiple times a week. It's not a drastic change and they don't go away for forever, but it helps. If anything it feels super good and cooling and it's a nice touch to add to my skincare routine.
jessi711 from CA
I am happy I got this eye refresh roller - it's perfect to use it around my eyes in summer, very comfortable.
Curly Doll from FL
I bought this amazing roller a few months ago and I am happy to have it since I use it along with eye cream to create that fresh sensation under eyes. Dark circles are still there but bags are gone.
Annie06 from undisclosed
This product works very well in itself but if I forget to leave it upside down then the end will be dry, therefore I can't use it to it's full potential.
didnt do much
suitcasey from undisclosed
i bought this a while ago and it didnt really do anything for my eyebags. however i enjoyed the cooling effect it had.
Andy34 from undisclosed
A 5-second refresher that I didn't know I needed. It's awesome that it has a cooling effect without having to put it in the fridge.
Quesito from Al
The product was sticky and left my under eyes feeling gross. I gave it 2 stars because it did have a nice cooling effect
MarvelousMess from Jacksonville
This product is pretty okay. It does reduce puffiness and it provides and pleasant cooling sensation. Definitely try in the fridge.
Loni311 from Orlando, FL
Love this stuff, so affordable and makes my puffy morning eyes vanish instantly. I keep it in the fridge so it has a nice cooling effect.
Andh17 from undisclosed
I love this roller. The cooling sensation is so nice and makes me feel like I'm being pampered for the few seconds that I use it. I love using it after I get out of a warm shower, especially after a long, hot run becasue it refreshes me instantly.
Surprisingly great double use
Princess_Purplek from England
I use this almost daily for two reasons. The first is to deal with my eyes and help refresh and hydrate the skin on both my eyelids and under eyes, but also discovered it helps cure my headaches. Rolling the ball on the end of the applicator across the crease of my eyelid and on my temples soothes headaches from when I'm straining my eyes or tired. Honestly can't remember why I decided to do it in the first place but am one hundred percent glad. This'll definitely be a repurchase.
Jaazaguilar from Sacramento, Ca
I bought this months ago and it really helps in the morning to wake up my eyes.
Does not a lot
gigote from Baltimore, MD
The +:Roll nicely on the skin and does not put too much product.
The -:It does not feel refreshing for me and, once dry, the product is still tacky and very shiny. Did not de-puff my eyes either.
