Review: Simple Kind To Eyes Revitalising Eye Roll-On

Back again with another Simple review, but this time it’s the Simple Kind To Eyes Revitalising Eye Roll-On*. I really like this product but I’ve got a bit of a love/hate relationship with it. 

Simple says: Our special blend of Simple revitalising goodness containing Pro-Vitamin B5, Cucumber Extract, Glycerin and Lupin Extract, helps to reduce puffiness and wake up and revitalise tired eyes. 

This product does exactly what it says on the tin. The roller ball dispenses enough product for it to be effective underneath or on top of makeup, but not so much that there’s excess or any dripping. It feels amazing. Honestly. You know when you’re really hot and you have an ice cold drink – that refreshing feeling? That’s what it’s like for your eyes. 

When I’m tired my eyelids feel so weighed down, and the roll on instantly perks them up. When the product dries it leaves behind a ‘tightening’ feeling; not horrible, but a constant refreshing feeling. And I love the fact that you can apply it at any point during the day, even over my makeup.


It’s just a feeling. I don’t see any difference in my tired eyes. The roller ball is great, so I don’t doubt that it helps my puffiness – along with the Simple Soothing Eye Balm. But apart from that I just don’t think it does much else. 

 I also love/hate the roller ball. Rolling it over my ‘made up’ face is just a recipe for disaster. Those who use clear mascara and know what happens to them after a while will get what I’m talking about. 

Bottom line: It’s a great product. I love the fact that it isn’t limited to just your morning/evening routine. If tired eyes are a big problem for you then I’d definitely give this a try, or even if you just need a pick-me-up from time to time. 

Realistically though, you could probably get the same result with a few slices of cucumber followed by a decent eye cream. 

 Simple Kind To Eyes Revitalising Eye Roll-On is available from all chain drugstores and major supermarkets, priced at £4.99.

Review: Simple Kind To Eyes Soothing Eye Balm

I’ve dabbled in eye creams before but haven’t found anything I’ve loved that has made a huge difference to my eyes. I’ve got dark circles and always have bags, and I don’t mean normal bags I mean suitcases perched on top of my hamster cheeks. When I’m really tired they look like they’re fit to burst.

Simple Kind To Eyes Soothing Eye Balm* has been my saviour of late and it’s now a staple in my skincare regime. The product is supposed to reduce puffiness and relax tired eyes, and although I’m not sure if it relaxes my eyes, it has definitely had an effect on my bags. In fact, they’ve almost gone. It’s not irritating at all so it’s great for people with sensitive eyes.

The product itself comes in a 15ml tube with a pointed nozzle, perfect for application around the eye area. I usually dispense a small amount under my eye, smooth it across the skin with my ring finger and then pat it in. If my bags are particularly bad then I’m a bit firmer with my patting, although careful not to damage the skin around the eye. Most days I use this before bed, but if I’m quite tired I use this in the morning too. It sinks in really easily and is fine underneath my makeup.

I’ll most definitely be purchasing this when it runs out, but tube seems very generous so I know it’ll last me ages.

Simple Kind To Eyes Soothing Eye Balm* is priced at £3.99 and is available from Boots, Superdrug and most drugstores and major supermarkets.
