I love the Mario Badescu Hyaluronic Eye Cream. I find that it leaves my skin super soft and I think it helps me look a little more awake and alert after a long night or stressful week. I do not currently have wrinkles around my eyes so I can't really speak to how effective it would be on the anti-aging front but I imagine it may be a little too light to really get rid of wrinkles. I also love that just a tiny bit, about the amount that you would get if you dipped your finger in the jar, is all that it takes to cover my whole eye area. 

I have tried a few other Mario Badescu eye creams and this is by far my favorite. It isn't too heavy and as long as you only apply the amount you need to very lightly cover your eye area it isn't at all greasy. I am able to wear make up over it as long as I give it five or so minutes to sink into my skin. It does not have any real noticeable smell which I love because perfumes in eye lotions always end up irritating my eyes. 

The price of a jar is a little more expensive than an eye cream you would pick up in a drugstore but I believe it is better quality and that it will last longer because you only need to use a tiny bit at a time to see results.

I got a free sample of Mario Badescu Hyaluronic Eye Cream as well as the ceramide Herbal cream and my review on both are 'negatively' the same.  The Hyaluronic Eye Cream is definitely oily.  The first time I used it, it was in the morning.  And just like the Ceramide Herbal cream it was just as heavy and greasy.  It was like this the whole day and my sunglasses were sliding on it and when I perpspired it was irritating my eyes!  I had to remove it, my eye makeup and all.  It was so frustrating.  It's better to use it in the evening, or bedtime rather, although I still can not get over how heavy and oily this was.  I just don't like it.  Thank goodness this was only a sample.  The few things that do please me is that it's moisturizing and the scent is light enough to not put me off, but other than that it's a no go for me.  I also can't really say that it did anything for my crow's feet, but then again I would not seek to find out because I've already blacklisted this product from ever coming near my eyes again.  Definitely would not purchase this.

For the cost, it should have worked better.

Comments about Mario Badescu Hyaluronic Eye Cream:

When I pay a lot of money for a beauty product, I expect results. That is what I expected when I spent a fair amount of money purchasing this Maria Badescu Hyaluronic Eye Cream. Hyaluronic Acid is an ingredient that is supposed to draw moisture to the skin around the eyes to make them look more hydrated. It is this action that is supposed to create a younger look to the eyes. I was not impressed. The ads made this product look like a miracle cream, however, my eyes did not look that much different after using it. I have some crow's feet from stress and I thought that this cream would help that. It made a tiny difference but not enough to warrant what I had to spend on the product. I feel as though my chain got jerked by buying this product. I will not purchase it again as I have found other products that work much better but cost a lot less. Just because a celebrity or a makeup "expert" says it will work does not mean it will actually work.

Very moisturizing, but a bit pricey!

By

Comments about Mario Badescu Hyaluronic Eye Cream:

I do like this eye cream by Mario Badescu, which really is no surprise as it's Mario Badescu! Anything by this brand is a safe bet in my experience, and the Hyaluronic Eye Cream is no exception. I find it to be extremely moisturizing, which is good for an eye cream, but after I apply it my skin remains a bit slick and inhospitable to any lasting eye makeup, so I only use this eye cream at bed time. I should mention that while I do like this product, it's good, of course, it's by no means my favorite eye cream and certainly not the best of all Mario Badescu's selection; there are many products that I prefer to this one that are less expensive.

Absorption
It absorbs well, my skin seems to drink it in. Even so, I don't recommend using this eye cream in the daytime or any other time you're planning to wear eye makeup, it leaves your skin too slick for anything to stick well.

Doesn't Clog Pores
The pores around my eyes have fared well!

Effectiveness
This works fine, but there are likely better and cheaper alternatives.

Hydrating nighttime eye cream

By

Comments about Mario Badescu Hyaluronic Eye Cream:

This is actually only the second eye cream I've used. Previously I had been using Bobbi Brown brand. The reason I rate this eye cream so high is because of its hydration. The first time I used it I applied it after my overall face lotion. When I woke up the next morning I could still feel the eye cream around my eyes whereas my overall face lotion had been completely absorbed. The eye cream is not overly heavy at all and a little goes a long way. It's not oily and has a smooth texture to it. I can't say that I've noticed any changes with fine lines or wrinkles but it does help with puffiness in the morning.

Comments about Mario Badescu Hyaluronic Eye Cream:

I received a small sample of this eye cream a few months ago, and have to admit that it got tossed in a drawer and forgotten for a while. I pulled it out recently, though, and began using it nightly (when I remember). I have been very please with the cream so far, though I have not noticed any visible results. I am still fairly young, though, and at this point using it more as a preventative measure against future aging than a relief effort for past aging. I am hoping that I can fend off the wrinkles if I keep using this cream & other great products. It has a lovely, smooth texture that glides onto the skin without feeling heavy or oily, yet is not so light as to feel like it doesn't work. So far, it has seemed to me to be a perfect balance of the two and I am hoping that I can work it into my budget once this sample runs out. Though it seems a little pricey to me, I think it would be worth it in the long run

This eye cream is very effective

Comments about Mario Badescu Hyaluronic Eye Cream:

Mario Badescu's hyaluronic eye cream is absolutely amazing. I received this item as a gift and fell in love with this product immediately and began to share with family members. The eye cream helps remove puffiness and it truly moistens the area. This cream is especially good for those with sensitive skin. it goes on smooth and does not irritate the skin, which is great for those of us who have had negative reactions to skin treatments before. The cream is very light and is not greasy at all. While this cream can be expensive, it is definitely worth the cost and ca truly help after a rough night. The bottle is small but it seems to last a long time, which is great because of the cost. I would certainly recommend this product to others who are in need of a product of this sort as it is a great product, is great for sensitive skin, and truly moisturizes. This product is amazing and would be a great addition to any woman's medicine cabinet.

I got an allergic reaction!

Comments about Mario Badescu Hyaluronic Eye Cream:

My friends had introduced me to Mario Badescu products awhile ago and i had heard so many great reviews that i decided to try it. I am thankful that i received this product as a sample instead of buying original size with my own money. This eye cream is not for everyone! When i finally received it in the mail, i was extremely excited to use it along with other mario badescu products i received (seaweed night cream, aloe lotion,etc.). The moment i put this cream around my eyes, i started experiencing severe pain around the area of my eye and it became red and puffy. I washed it off immediately and until today, my eyes are still red and puffy. Also, my whole face became itchy due to his other products! I went to the doctor a week later (i was hoping that my face will heal by then), and was prescribed me to allergy medicine. From today on, i will be careful before putting anything on my face. Mario badescu products are not for everyone!

Just okay

Comments about Mario Badescu Hyaluronic Eye Cream:

The **Mario Badescu Hyaluronic Eye Cream** is a decent product for me so far. I don't really use it that regularly, but I did try it for a few weeks when I received a free sample of it. I probably wouldn't shell out the big bucks to buy the product though, as all Mario Badescu products are really expensive. Basically, I followed the instructions on the jar, and applied it at night after I had washed my face. Well, after a few weeks of using it, I can't honestly say that I see much of a difference. I tend to suffer from black rings under my eyes (due to not getting enough sleep), so I had been hoping that the hyaluronic eye cream could help reduce the dark circles. So far, I don't think the eye cream has really done much of anything, either good or bad for me. I'm wondering how long I have to use it in order to see results. As of now, I would not recommend it to others, as there are probably cheaper products that can get the job done.

I don't really see a difference...

Comments about Mario Badescu Hyaluronic Eye Cream:

Anyone who knows mario badescu's products should know they are on the more expensive side. I actually have never heard of this line until i saw a youtube review about it. The girl told us that you were able to get free samples before buying a full size which i think is really good. So in order to get the sample, you have to feel out a survey on what type of skin you have and they'll send you recommended products. I always have dark circles under my eyes and sometimes bag. I don't know I do since I sleep a whole lot, but I just do. I wanted to try this hyaluronic eye cream to see if it can help tighten the skin and diminish the look of dark circles. I've been using this for a couple of weeks and it hasn't really done anything for me. The cream is smooth and blends into your skin, not leaving a cakey feeling or anything like that though it does feel kinda of oily if you don't rub it in. Doesn't smell like anything so I would give it a try for free and see if you like it.
