It is rare for me to get so excited about an eye cream within only a few weeks of using it but I have to say that the Mario Badescu Hyaluronic Eye Cream has made an impression on me. If you read my post about incorporating other hyaluronic acid moisturizers into my skincare routine, then you know that I am a huge fan. Our bodies naturally produce hyaluronic acid and it plays an important role in maintaining the health of skin’s barrier by aiding the skin in retaining moisture. It is also one of the very few ingredients that I’ve noticed makes a visible improvement to my skin within hours of using it.
Background: I’ve tried quite a few different eye creams over the years to help combat fine lines around me eyes. I am beginning to believe that I was born a squinter and that really doesn’t bode well for the formation of dynamic lines around my eyes. As I’ve gotten older, the lines have become more and more visible.
My experience: The Mario Badescu Hyaluronic Eye Cream is the first eye cream I’ve tried that actually seems to help plump the lines and reduce their visibility within minutes of applying it. I don’t know that it helps prevent future lines or the depth of the lines I already have but I am more than willing to give this product a shot over the long haul for a number of reasons.
Results: I saw a visible improvement within thirty minutes of application, which is something I’ve never experienced before. While the eye cream is thick, its absorbs within minutes and while the area still feels moist to the touch afterward– I can apply makeup over it without any trouble; I haven’t had a single instance of my foundation oxidizing over it and that’s another first. So, the fact that I can use this eye cream for daytime and nighttime and still get the same effect has cut down on the products that I use as part of my daily skincare routine. This product also didn’t lead to any breakouts, something I’ve been diligently trying to avoid since being prescribed Tazorac by my doctor. Also, this product cost me less than $20. I’m serious. I got a healthy 14 ml. pot for under $20. Amazing.
