Mario Badescu Eye Cream Review: Expectations vs. Reality


Aging is always a topic of fear and panic-inducing thoughts. Especially when you are 30+ and trying to figure out the creases of wisdom on your face.
Things like skincare and rejuvenating rituals can help you get your mind off, and honestly, I am a personal believer in being as youthful as you feel. Age is only a number after all.

Even more so when life is short and you would rather smile away your young adulthood, but the fear of wearing and tearing down your muscles underneath your face’s skin has always been a contributing factor to why mid-aged adults are such party poopers.

The reason why eye cream is important and the demand for it is constantly on the rise is definitely because of the increased awareness and also the fact that these products actually work.

Find out if this is the right cream for you though by going through the specifics mentioned below.

Mario Badescu Hyaluronic Eye Cream Review

Best For: Dry Skin

The company claims that its hyaluronic eye cream can significantly alter the signs of aging from right under the eye. It is very hydrating and works better than most moisturizers in general.

However, the product is no magic serum that will automatically take away your age and leave you with visible youth on the face.

I saw great results, however my cousin who is a regular user and suggested me comparatively didn’t benefit all that much.

She used the product for over 5 months, with a little, barely noticeable change. But to be fair, it was because she already had fine lines and wrinkles long before she started using the product, and she’s sufficiently aged.

Should you buy: Yes, could prove to be a formidable ally during summer outings.


The key active ingredient- Hyaluronic acid aka is “hyaluronan” is one of the most hydrating agents out there that is used in commercial cosmetics and even make-up.

What it does is lock in the moisture to keep our tissues lubricated to retain that pulp on the face.
