I bought this product because I like the Garnier hair product but was disappointed with this face product. The roller is very large, so you cannot get very close to the eye area. A lot of the face treatment comes out with one application, so you still have to smooth it on with your hands. And it is sticky! Absorption The treatment does not soak into your skin until you smooth it into your skin with your fingertips. Then the product is on you fingers and needs to be wiped off. It will just lay on your face and wait. There is no way to control the amount that comes out with each roll. Doesn't Clog Pores I did not use the product long enough to determine if it would clog my pores or not. However, with the experience in the consistency of the treatment, I would think that it would be pore clogging after using it for a period of time. Effectiveness I could not tell if the product did work because I did not use it long enough to decide. My wrinkles are close to my eye area, so I was not able to reach the areas with the large roller in the bottle.
