Too Expensive for the Results

By 

from Chicagoland, IL

Comments about Murad Renewing Eye Cream:

I'm one of those women who loves trying different beauty products but who prefer not to spend too much money doing so. I generally am pleased with the Olay Regenerist line of skin care for both its effectiveness and cost, but every so often I like to try something with a little more prestige.

When I saw and felt the first drop of the **Murad Renewing Eye Cream** on the tip of my fingers I was pleased with its consistency. It's more like a thick, lotiony texture than a pore-clogging heavy cream.

Absorption
I have oily skin so I only used a small amount, and my eyelids and under eye areas felt moistened but not greasy.

The scent was very subtle and the cream absorbed into my skin very quickly and thoroughly. There was no residue or annoying stickiness left behind.

Doesn't Clog Pores
I noticed the next morning after use that I had a couple of ever-so-tiny pimples that had formed overnight. Again, I have oily skin so it didn't surprise me that I would get a few with a new product. They weren't problematic, and they cleared up quickly.

Effectiveness
To determine Murad's effectiveness, I think it depends on what your goals are when you start using it. For me, I don't believe any eye cream can eradicate dark circles (which I don't have anyway) so I am more interested in how it nurtures and protects my delicate eye area. I assess this type of product on its ingredients which seem good (retinol, soybean protein, wild yam, etc) so that I know I'm getting proven ingredients to protect and nourish my skin. I think Murad is probably reasonably effective and does combat eye puffiness, but it's not so superior that it justifies its high price tag.

Not what I was hoping for

By 

from Hudsonville, MI

Comments about Murad Renewing Eye Cream:

"Treat and repair" are its claims. It is suppose to reduce wrinkles and lessen the dark circles under your eyes. I have been trying it for 6 weeks now. I use it every morning but I only use it on one eye (I am using Oil of Olay for the other eye). I am 40, I have several wrinkles around my eyes when I smile but not huge, noticable ones when I don't smile. I do however, have dark circles under my eyes. I always have but they do seem to be getting darker with age. On with my anaylsis. After 6 weeks of use, I can honestly say, I do not see any difference between my eyes when I smile in terms of wrinkles. The same is true for the dark circles - no difference between eyes. It is possible that different skin types respond in different ways but i would say save your money. Didn't work for me.

Murad Renewing Eye Cream

By 

from San Marcos, CA

Comments about Murad Renewing Eye Cream:

I am a makeup and skin care junky, and have tried a bazillion different eye creams on the mad hope that one miracle in a bottle will take years off my eyes. If it is true that the eyes are the window to the soul, then unfortunately all you are going to see is crows feet! I am in my early 40's and was blessed with these lovely eye wrinkes from my mother (gee thanks! couldn't you have given me your little nose instead!). Anyway, I have been using this eye cream for about 7 weeks now, and I find it works okay. No, my wrinkes haven't disappeared, and I still have dark circles, but it does moisturize all right (I would prefer a little more), but it doesn't irritate my eyes. I don't think I would buy again based on the cost and the results I saw, but I will finish the bottle.

Not sure about the result

By 

from Frisco, TX

Comments about Murad Renewing Eye Cream:

I have combination skin. My T-zone is slightly oily and the rest of my face is dry. I use sunscreen SPF 15 or above everyday because I have some age spots that will not go away. I was introduced to Murad products when I lived in L.A., even though I had never heard of it and I decided to give it a try.

The Murad Renewing Eye cream came in a small bottle. One thing I don't like about this eye cream is, it is pump style. That means when you almost run out of their eye cream, you cannot use the rest inside the bottle. I think it is such a big waste. The only good thing about the pump is you will never pump more than you need. So you can kind of gauge what you are using everyday and you will not waste too much of the eye cream.

I have been using this eye cream for 3 weeks. I don't see significant improvement in the crowsfeet that I have. I don't have a lot to begin with so it is hard to tell if it is working or not. Sometimes, this eye cream will leave a residue under my eyes. I am not sure if the cold weather is doing that to my cream or not.

Overall, I would say, it is not like a cream that I want to use in a long run. It is not creamy at all. And I don't see any of my dark circle or puffiness going away.

Usual impressive Murad quality

By 

from Lakewood, CA

Comments about Murad Renewing Eye Cream:

Murad Renewing Eye Cream is part of their Reurgence treatment line. What I like the most about this eye cream is that once I apply it it pretty much stays on all day. It stays sealed with or without a coat of foundation. It's not watery or irritating in any way. It leaves a soft firming 'feel' underneath and above the eye. It has no fragrance but has a gentle clean smell. I've been a fan of Dr. Murad's products for around five years now and I've always been impressed and satisfied with every Murad product I've tried. I also use this cream on my deep eye furrow between my eyebrows to reduce the appearance of my crazy wrinkle. It also helps brighten up the dark circles underneath my eyes. It's 'illuminating.' And most importantly, a little goes a long way with this product! It really is that thick and long lasting. It's what you would expect from using a high quality and high end product.

Perfect eye cream for delicate eyes.

By 

from Los Angeles, CA

Comments about Murad Renewing Eye Cream:

The Murad Renewing Eye Cream comes in a clear small bottle with a pump and cap. The pump is very easy to use and it does not get stuck. Since this eye cream in a bottle it keeps the eye cream very sterile. One full pump is more than enough eye cream to cover my entire eye, so I only push the pump half way and that is still more than enough cream to cover my eyes. This eye cream is very creamy and absorbs very quickly without leaving a greasy feeling behind. It does not sting or bother my eyes, it keeps my dedicate eye skin elastic and smooth. After a few weeks of using this eye cream it has smoothed out the mini lines that have formed under my eye. This eye cream does not just fill in the lines that have formed it has dramatically smoothed them out. I would apply the eye cream and wait a couple of minutes before applying concealer or eyeshadow because it takes a little time for the skin to fully absorb the eye cream. Concealer goes on very smoothly and it does not look cakey under my eyes. I love this stuff because it keeps my eyes so hydrated.

The only eyecream your make up bag will ever need

By 

from Fairfax, VA

Comments about Murad Renewing Eye Cream:

Harsh summers, cold winters can leave my eye area dry looking and feeling. When that happens my concealer does not go on as smoothly and begins to flake towards the end of the day. It does not look very pretty. One pump of Murad Renewing Eye Cream is more than enough to cover up my under eye area and combat future crows feet which is a plus. I have sensitives skin so many eye creams tend to make my eyes sting, water and all of that horrible stuff. To my surprise this eye cream did not have any harsh side effects which made me even love it more! I have minor dark circles that seemed to have lighten up ever since I have started to use this eye cream. its like magic to my eyes. It goes on very smooth and creamy. Definitely absorbs into the skin within minute's of application. Since, I use my ring finger to apply the eye cream I do not need to use a lot of pressure and force,so my skin can stay nice and firm. This eye cream is non-greasy so it leaves skin hydrated and when applying concealer it looks very natural (if only i could wake up without dark circles!). So worth the quality.
