Most Helpful Positive Review hydrating and non-greasy
I am almost 40 and have been testing a variety of anti-aging products over this past year. My eyes are showing minimal to no aging - no lines or crows feet, but now is the time to be preventive. I purchased 2 eye creams: the Mario Badescu Hyaluronic Eye Cream and 1 from a well known global brand 2X the price of this one, both about the same size. I chose the global brand because I tried a deluxe sample in my early 30s, which I liked but didn't need an eye cream then. I chose this Hyaluronic eye cream based on reviews and I am glad I did. It's been about 4 months and I noticed that my eyes are brighter, hydrated, and youthful. I am of Indian descent and the skin around my eyes looks somewhat darker then the rest of my skin, but it is not dark circles from aging, I think it is an ethnic issue. I immediately notice that discoloration gone. I never realized that the skin around my eyes was not hydrated enough. I use wear eyeshadow on lids to cover it up, but I don't have to anymore. This formulation is also non-greasy, your skin just looks well moisturized. Whereas the pricier global brand was greasy and thick, I could only put it on at night and it clogged my pores on the side of my nose causing breakouts similar to my teens. So far, this is the only anti-aging product that I am satisfied with and have added to my daily routine. It is worth a try, but please keep in mind that I don't have lines around my eyes to comment on those results.
Most Helpful Critical Review Do not recommend
I remember reading some reviews before buying this eyecream; one was about clogged pores and tiny dots that could occur from this product but, since I'd seen so many other great reviews as well, i decided to purchase this anyway. A month later, i truly regret it and i cant do anything but warn anyone looking to buy this. It didn't work for me to say the least, wish i would've listened to that tiny bumps warning.

Mineral oil is so bad for your face. It clogs pores big-time. Thus the tiny scattered pimples. Same as using petroleum jelly under your eyes. Bad news.
So far so good!

I used Tula eye stick and I loved it, but I didn't like the glow. It was way to much flow. I don't wear makeup besides mascara, so i felt like when I putting the Tula eye stick on, I was like rubbing it off due to the glow. The lady at Ulta recommended this eye cream and so far so good! I've been using for maybe a week now!

I was super excited about this because it's time for me to start using products for my face! Well this made my eyes puffy and red after using. Left my eyes dry and worse than what I initially began with. Lol ?

This eye cream works well to make my under eye area less chalky and smooths out the color. Probably wouldn't use under my makeup, but for overnight it definitely helps.

One of the best eye creams I've ever used!!
Dried out my skin
RB from Kentucky
I generally have very oily skin, so very few products ever dry me out. But after a few weeks using this eye cream, my under eye was very flaky and dry. The product sat on top of my skin and didn't absorb. I hate throwing out products before I use it all but this was doing more harm than good.
First Mario purchase.

No change in eye area after consistent use. Causes my makeup to set differently. Tried using more and less product. And after being kept in a dark cool consistent place for 4 months, it separates. Oily bit on top. Which shouldn't happen. It didn't break me out though
So greasy and heavy!
PrincessSofia from Los Angeles CA
I was excited to try this after all the positive reviews I read and unfortunately I was left so disappointed! It was so heavy and greasy feeling (and I have a high tolerance for rich creams because I have super dry, sensitive skin.) but this one was way too much for me. Going to have to look for something else
Holy Grail eye cream
Vicki from Greenwood, IN
This is my Holy Grail! This is very moisturizing for my dry under eye area. I love that this also makes the deep folds I've always had on my lower lids a lot less noticeable and plumped up. The benefits are multiplied when I put a couple drops of my face oil over it.
tarynelizabeth from Pennsylvania
I got this for free in a recent purchase and it works pretty well along with the glycolic eye cream, definitely leaves my eyes feeling super smooth. I love how creamy it is and a little definitely goes a super long way. I probably won't buy it again because I feel like there are probably way more better options out on the market.
definitely worth the money

at first i thought this wasn't gonna work but wow! after the second use of the eye cream i automatically noticed that it got rid of my eye bags and it brightened the eye area up! definitely recommend!
If I could give 0 stars I would
Diana from Walnut, CA
Definitely returning this: 1) It made my fine lines more noticeable than before. 2) It doesn't absorb into the skin and so it made the skin around my eyes look shiny and oily. 3) It made me now have a small brown dot on my skin at the corner of my eye that wasn't there before 4) It makes my skin feel too tight, similar to when you use a clay mask. Soooo disappointed :(
Didn't work for me
J from Ohio
This cream heavy and doesn't absorb well so I wouldn't suggest using it during the day. After using it for several nights I noticed I was getting little red dots under my eyes and my skin was dry and sensitive. I had to stop using it and then my skin wen back to normal.
Would give 0 stars

Broke out my face in bumps, itchiness, dry patchiness and general irritation.
I notice a huge difference with dryness but not with color
Destiny from Fairfax, VA
I do love this because it has helped a lot with dryness around my eyes but I wish it did more for the dark circles. It does help but it's not a super drastic difference. I will try their other eye creams before buying again just to see if another one helps with the dark circles more.
Not my favorite
Danielle from Nebraska
I love MB products but this one just sits under my eyes and looks and feels extremely greasy. It doesn't absorb at all. I would say only try this if you have extremely dry skin underneath your eyes but even then it seems so heavy and greasy!
MLR from Illinois
I received this in a sample size and it has immediately reduced the dark circles and puffiness in my eyes. I never review products but this is an exception. The product works well - and quickly too! I really notice a difference!
Gentle and soothing. No burn.
Liz from Logan Utah
Great item for the price. Very moisturizing and gentle.
Best eye cream ever
Lizza from Alaska
My favorite eye cream
Amanda from Washington DC
Wanted to love this but it was soooo greasy and just SAT on my eyes. Couldn't use for day use because I couldnt apply makeup and nighttime it just smeared on my pillow
Tara B from Waco, Texas
Extremely hydrating!!!! Love. If you suffer from dry under eyes then I would 10/10 recommend!!
Targets moisture not wrinkles
JayMe from Grand Rapids, MI
This product works! A little definitely goes a long way so I'll be using this for awhile! Product works as described, it's VERY moisturizing & I did notice it softened some of my fine lines. It doesn't irritate my sensitive eyes which is great (between wearing contacts & having allergies, eye creams with retinol are way too irritating for me). I will alternate this with another eye cream that targets puffiness/darkness, but overall I'm happy with it. Great price point for the amount you get, & a little really does go a long way! Pat a very THIN layer outwards with your ring finger & let it sink in for several minutes. Also, I didn't notice any issues with my makeup over it during the day!
Very good product
Summer from New york
Unfortunately due to the poor customer service in the store I didn't choose the right product . I did look on the Mario web site and found the product that I should be using. I do love this line.
Best eye creme
JulieC from Bentonville AR
Just a tiny dab around each eye . Soothing, works great . I need a fragrance free product and there is one that suits my needs
Great cream for a great price
Stephanie from Connecticut
This product has been a great addition to my daily routine. I first fell in love with the drying lotion after I began getting acne at 28, it's great for when those white heads pop up. After using some harsh prescribed acne medicine, the natural balance of my skin has been out of wack and went from super oily to dry in a matter of months. Now at 30, dry skin means all of your crows feet show and so the skin around my eyes have been dull and dry. Since using this product day and night (a tiny dab does the trick!) my eye area has been hydrated and my crows feet are not noticeable. I was worried after reading the reviews that it would be a bit too harsh on my sensitive skin, I can't wear makeup without getting hives, but thankfully after a patch test it worked wonders for me. I would say to try it before discounting it all together based on negative reviews - I'm so glad I did!
