I seem to remember that the concept of a cooling metal roller ball for de-puffing products was pioneered by Creme de La Mer, but other than feeling pleasant to the touch, I don’t think these really make any actual difference to the skin – it’s just too fleeting a moment for it to have any impact. What is more likely to make an impact though, is the product itself. I struggle with eye creams that don’t make my eyes worse – all the promises of plumping etc seem to mean only puffing with me, and since the worst skin care allergic reaction I have ever had was with an eye serum, I’m just all round sceptical. I’m never sure if eye creams really do any more than your regular face cream would – the talk that regular cream is too heavy etc for the ‘delicate eye area’ is something I am not entirely convinced isn’t just to indoctrinate us into buying even more products! However, there’s something about this Clinique eye roller that I find intriguing…an eye serum that I actually do want to try. I don’t have much information on it…it just looks impressive. I’ve lately been very impressed with Clinique products – I’m currently trying their Even Better Clinical Dark Spot Corrector that comes with impressive trial stats (in 4 weeks can improve dark spots, age spots and darkened pigmentation from acne scars) and claims prescription strength results – whether it reduces any pigmentation or not, it is a gorgeous serum texture that my skin loves. It’s on counter from April.

Totally agree with you about the metal roller – using the blistix moisture splash at the moment and the roller gives it such a nice feel on application but it does nothing what so ever, but the product is great.
I’m also trying out the All About Eyes cream by Clinique in the pot version and so far I haven’t seem any difference in the way of results however going to give it a week longer.
I love the original ‘all about eyes’ and would be very interested to try this new product. It is the first time that I have heard about it, thank you!
I, too, have never found a dedicated eye cream that didn’t basically give me conjunctivitis.
But what I have started doing is mixing in a small blob of 8 hour cream with my normal nighttime moisturiser, which I’ve noticed makes a difference.
I’m massively skeptical about that “delicate eye area” needing a special cream thing, too. xxx
