Badescu’s Hyaluronic Eye Cream was the third thing I tried. By this point, I basically thought the company sucked, and wondered why they’re not totally bankrupt.
What they say: “Hyaluronic Acid formula helps lock in the skin’s own natural moisture without the use of heavy, greasy oils. Absorbent, medium weight cream for use day or night. Aloe based formula makes this cream suitable for all skin types, even sensitive.” (for all skin types)
At first sight: Finally, a normal-looking lotion! White and unscented, this was by far the most promising-looking product!
At first use: No glitter, no smell = happy Rae!! However, this felt a bit heavy and tacky, but a little goes a very long way. I can’t vouch for the eye-cream-properties of this, as my eye area’s still young and pretty youthful – no wrinkles or fine lines to fill up here, though this did keep my dry corners moisturised! (The outside corners of my eyes tend to get dry, uncomfortable, and flaky)
The verdict: This is a fine product in my books! I used it a dozen-odd times, and that was just off the product on the lid! I didn’t even need to touch the product in the jar :) It’s not for me, but only because I don’t need an eye cream! I think it would be a great first eye cream for someone in their mid twenties, because it’s simple and does what it promises – keeps your eye area supple and hydrated. No big claims here, so it lives up to it’s aspirations!! Also, at $18/jar, this is much more reasonably priced than many anti-ageing creams.
