Spotted: Garnier Skin Renew Miracle Skin BB Eye Perfector (New Formula)

I'm so confused by this one, and I'm hoping some of you might be able to help me out. I wasn't even aware that Garnier had a Skin Renew Miracle Skin BB Eye Perfector (not to be confused with the Skin Renew Anti Dark Circle Roll-On that I reviewed back in 2010). But when reader @cristina592 on Instagram shared the below pic with me, the first thing I noticed was that the box says "New Formula" as opposed to just "New":

(retail: $12.99 at Rite Aid)

After some Google searches, it appears that the Garnier BB Eye Perfector has been available in Europe and Australia (and maybe elsewhere) for some time now. Over on Makeup Alley, there are some reviews from European members, but I also see references to Target in some of the reviews, leading me to believe that this product may have originally been released in 2013 in the US (unless those reviewers are in Canada?). 

At any rate, whether it was here before or not, it has now been reformulated, per the packaging. You can read more about this product on the Garnier site HERE. The image on the Garnier site says "NEW" as opposed to "NEW FORMULA", which only adds to the confusion (for me, at least). This product comes in two shades: Fair/Light and Light/Medium.

Do you remember seeing this product in the US at some point? If you already own it, are you happy to see that it has been reformulated?

Thanks, Cristina, for the heads-up and pic!


  1. Glad I could help (or confuse lol). I saw this product at CVS for anyone interested. It's new to me so I'd thought I'd share

    1. Lol! You definitely helped put it on my radar! :) And sorry for messing up the store... will fix that above. Thanks again! :)

  2. I certainly haven't seen this product in any form before, but I'm also probably not as observant as some of your other readers and could have just as easily missed it. I do know that Target has stores in Australia though, so maybe the comment came from users there?
    Comment box ate my earlier response (silly thing) so please feel free to delete this one if the other is actually there! :)

    1. Never got your first comment so thanks for posting again! And great point about Australia. Hum....

  3. It looks like their caffeine roller with pigment, just rebranded to get on the "BB craze" wagon.

  4. Huh. I use a store brand of their tinted eye roller (but I did use the brand-name one first) which doesn't seem too radically different from this, so methinks bandwagon also. Everyone and their mother, kinda makes me glad I went on a no-buy, all these are getting a bit overwhelming

  5. The original one launched shortly after the BB cream. I've had it since then but I hate the way it sinks into the creases under my eyes. I actually seems to make the dark circles worse somehow BUT I use it on other areas of my face to hide blemishes and it works like a charm for that. And yes is just like the caffeine eye roller except with pigment. I'm excited to try the new formula perhaps it will work better for under the eyes.
