Like most women in their mid-forties, I’m entering this stage of my life kicking and screaming. Wrinkles, sagging skin, dull skin, and eye bags are not on my agenda, no matter what my skin thinks. Oh how I hate eye bags more than all the rest. Nothing makes you look old faster than giant puffy bags under your eyes. I was honestly embarrassed to go out in public without a lot of concealer to try to hide the dark line that separated the under eye bags and the rest of my face. I’ve used witch hazel under my eyes before with nice results but the results don’t last long and the older I get the less it is able to combat my rebellious skin. Enter Simple brand. I noticed them at a local pharmacy when they had a buy one get one half off sale on multiple products. With each product around $10 I figured it was worth $15 to try a couple out. I’ve paid more than that for a jar of eye cream that did a whole lot of nothing.
Simple Revitalizing Eye Roll-On Claims
Simple doesn’t make a lot of claims about what this simple roll-on liquid will do for your eyes. They say quite simply it reduces puffiness around the eyes and wakes up tired eyes by massaging the skin around the eyes. They suggest use “anytime you need a little revitalization.”
Simple Revitalizing Eye Roll-On Ingredients
Simple boasts “kind to eyes,” “vitamin goodness,” and no perfumes or dyes. The Simply website spells out what each ingredient in the formula is for and although I still had to look a couple of terms up, it was a refreshing change to see a company attempt to explain their ingredients in simple English. Main ingredients seem to be vitamin B5, cucumber extract, glycerine, alfalfa extract, and algae extract.
Full list of ingredients (per Simply website):
Water (Aqua, Eau) (Solvent), Butylene Glycol (Humectant), Medicago Sativa (Alfalfa) Seed Extract (Skin Conditioner), Cucumis Sativus (Cucumber) Fruit Extract (Skin Conditioner), Algae Extract (Skin Conditioner), Sodium Hyaluronate (Humectant), Panthenol (Pro-Vitamin B5), Hydrolyzed Lupine Protein, Biosaccharide Gum-1 (Skin Conditioner), Tetrahydroxypropyl Ethylenediamine (Chelating Agent), Glycerin (Humectant), Acrylates/C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer (Viscosity Increasing Agent), Xanthan Gum (Viscosity Controller), Allantoin (Soothing agent), Ethylhexylglycerin (Skin Conditioner), Sorbitol (Skin Conditioner), Disodium EDTA (Chelating Agent), Phenoxyethanol (Preservative)
Simple Revitalizing Eye Roll-On Use
Using the Simple Revitalizing Eye Roll-On is actually simple. A every so slight squeeze to the tube and then gently roll it under your eyes a couple of times. Of course, be careful not to get it in your eyes. The instructions state to gently rub the excess into the skin but I find it unnecessary unless you squeeze the tube far too much.
Simple Revitalizing Eye Roll-On Experience
The first day I tried Simple Revitalizing Eye Roll-On I was pleasantly surprised with how well it worked. The solution rolled on easily without globs or runs. The metal roller ball was a nice change from the expected plastic ball and certainly added a cooling effect. The bags under my eyes did not magically vanish or even noticeably shrink at all. As it didn’t require any effort to apply I determined to give it at least a week of once a day use before tossing the tube. By day 3 I was impressed. The bag under one eye was nearly gone and the bag under the other eye (the one bad enough it embarrassed me) was drastically shrunk. By the end of a week one eye bag might as well have never been there and the worse bag is maybe a third of what it once was. I’m actually excited to see how much more it will shrink over the next few weeks.
The tube is a generous 1/2 ounce and with the roll-on application it is difficult to over apply the liquid so a single tube should last a few months at least. A huge bargain compared to what other under-eye bag solutions cost.
In reading other reviews, several people have noted that the formula stung their skin. I had absolutely not stinging from this product but everyone’s skin is different and it is quite possible that these folks had a sensitivity to one of the extracts or other ingredients. If you try the Simple Revitalizing Eye Roll-On and it stings, don’t use it. At $10 or less a tube, it is far from the huge monetary gamble of many cosmetics.
Simple Revitalizing Eye Roll-On Review Summary
I truly love the Simple brand Revitalizing Eye Roll-On and plan to buy another tube soon as I can not see why I would not continue to use it with such drastic results.
