Mario Badescu Ceramide Herbal Eye Cream Review

Mario Badescu's Ceramide Herbal Eye Cream is an "easily absorbed, non greasy eye cream" that's made with "vegetable, carnation, and antioxidant rich rose hip oil. Reduce the look of dry, tired eyes and helps smooth out fine lines and wrinkles to keep the delicate eye area looking moist and youthful." This eye cream contains .5oz (15ml) and sells for a reasonable $18. Mario Badescu does not test on animals. 

The Ceramide Herbal Eye Cream, like many Mario Badescu products, comes in a simple, opaque white jar with a screw on cap. The Mario Badescu logo and product name are printed on the front of the jar. I'm sure yinz are tired of me saying it, but I don't like moisturizers in jars - I'm all about that squeeze tube life.

Mario Badescu's Ceramide Herbal Eye Cream is pretty basic. This light green eye cream is somewhere between a gel and cream in consistency, so its easy to apply and quick to absorb. The Ceramide Herbal Eye Cream feels cooling, soothing, and a little greasy upon application. As it sinks in, this eye cream remains a bit greasy, making it a night time only product for me. The Ceramide Herbal Eye Cream adds a fair bit of moisture to the eye area, but that's just about all it does. Mario Badescu says this'll reduce fine lines, but after five weeks of use, I've yet to see any results. When it comes to ingredients, this eye cream is fairly natural, but I'm not sure how beneficial some of the ingredients are, because some of them are kinda vague. Vegetable oils? What vegetables? This eye cream is fragrance free, but it has a bit of herbal scent.

Eh, Mario Badescu's Ceramide Herbal Eye Cream is pretty standard, but not in a bad way. It does moisturize, and the formula seems gentle. If you're looking for an eye cream that'll reduce lines and wrinkles, or won't feel greasy, this is not what you're looking for. I'll finish off my generous sample, but would not purchase a full size.
