For the last few weeks, my eyes have been feeling really puffy in the mornings so I started looking into finding an eye roll-on stick with anti-puffing properties. I’ve been a fan of Marcelle ever since their BB Cream so I decided to try out the Marcelle Hydra-C Eye Roll-On for anti-puff and dark circles.
The key ingredient in these types of anti-puff products is caffeine because it acts as a vasoconstrictor aka it narrows your blood vessels. Puffiness is essentially inflammation so caffeine would certainly help. As someone who suffers from migraines this is why having a little bit of Coca Cola usually helps. The other factor that aids in de-puffing is the metallic rollerball because it’s cold. As we all know, being cold causes things to shrink :-)
The thing about this product that got my attention though was that there was vitamin C in it, but when you look at the list of ingredients, citric acid is actually the second to last ingredient, which makes me think that maybe vitamin C doesn’t have all that much to do with the efficacy of this product.
