FAIL - Yes To Blueberries Brightening Eye Roller Review

A little while back, Shoppers Drug Mart was having a sale on Yes To Carrots (and all the other fruit and veggie) products so I decided to pick up the ones that seemed interesting.  I'll start off with the most exciting for me, the Eye Roller.

Description: Yes To Blueberries Brightening Eye Roller contains a light, refreshing serum applied under the eyes and around the orbital bone using circular motions to brighten, refresh, and reduce dark circles. This blend includes Horse Chestnut, a natural botanical that helps improve the appearance of dark circles by stimulating circulation and blood flow, along with Bearberry Extract, an anti-oxidant rich botanical that helps brighten dark circles by inhibiting melanin production. Now whip out this little wand and say buh-bye to pesky dark circles!
  • 99% Natural
  • Free of Parabens, Petroleum and SLS
  • No Animal Testing

  • I was so excited to use this that the second I got into the car, I literally opened it and rolled it under my eyes.  It was late at night, I figured I could use a little dark circle reduction. *ohhh, ahhh* So cooling and refreshing.  Fast forward 15 seconds and my eyes were burning, I mean BURNING!  My eyes, both where I rolled it and my actual eye ball, were all red.  I closed my eyes and just sat there for a few minutes until the burning subsided, drove home and flushed my eyes with cold water.  The redness and burning was gone.  I figured that it was nothing and that I would try it again in the AM.  I wake up, excited to use it, and do my regular facial routine.  I roll it under my eyes and again, the amazing cooling sensation took over followed by burning!  I gave up on this product by the second time I used it.  I would not repurchase for obvious reasons, however, suggest you try it if you're wherever you purchased it from has a good return policy.  It did feel very refreshing and cooling but you can probably get the same effect (minus the burning) with a cold spoon :).

    Retails for approx. $20 CAN and can be purchased at Shoppers Drug Mart.  Canadians, you know what that is!  You can also check out for more info.
