I received a sample and purchased the full size. I was looking for a nighttime eye cream and never dreamed of using one with glycolic acid, but I like this. It is heavy and leaves my eye area smooth in the morning. It cleared up a dry patch of skin my upper eyelid too. I think it is also good since I am wearing eye makeup lately, and use eyelid primer. Seems to temporarily reduce the appearance of fine lines too. It can sting a little. Will update after more use.
During the day, I use 100% pure coffee bean eye cream. I like it, its no frills and moisturizing. I've tried tons of eye creams, none are magical, I like ones that clearly help with moisture and don't interfere with makeup (if daytime use).

I am 50 with very sensitive skin, and a stickler for ingredients, I bought this product two months ago out of desperation after seeing the celebrities on the MB website, I was recovering from a skin infection that left the eye area damaged and wanted to revive the eye area.
As a Masque - I am using this product as a masque once a week, I would never dare leave it on my eyes over night.
I use quite a thick layer and leave it on a couple of hours then remove, it is greasy and thick, but cushions the skin very well while the glycolic gets to work. At first I could feel a bit of a tingle but now I feel nothing and I find it effective at getting rid of dead skin cells around the eye area, very gently, when the product is used in this way. In the beginning I used a minute amount as I was sure I would be allergic and was gobsmacked when I wasn't.
Like I said, I apply a thick layer under the eye and on crows feet and out to the temple, I apply another masque on the rest of my face, moisture one or firming one, then leave them two hours (that's the longest I've left it so far)... then I splash and remove the masque with tepid water, then with clean water I get a fine muslin cloth (a neals year one) I hold the eye area and very gentle take the cream off with warm water, I find this effective, gentle and inexpensive way to revive the eye area on my mature skin.
So for me this products works well as a masque for dry, recovering from damage dry skin.
Unless I find something better I will stick with this for the time being, I am not keen on the ingredients, but for the moment I have no reaction and it is doing the job very well, better than I expected and it is a reasonable price.

So far on the buy this again, I would hit 'maybe'. I purchased this because I love how much glycolic acid has helped the rest of my face, so I wanted to try and eye safe cream with the same hopes.
I went into this not expecting much, and that's pretty much what I have gotten (so far).
I started using this about a month ago, and upon first glance I like the packaging. I know some don't, but I prefer my eye creams in a pot. I just ALWAYS make sure that I wash my hands before dipping my finger in the pot.
Once this is spread on, it is VERY oily. I mean, like so oily, it would still not be fully absorbed when I would wake up after sometimes 10 hours of sleep. And this persisted no matter how thoroughly I rubbed the product on.
In the a.m., I still have puffiness... I don't have wrinkles, so I can say if there is an improvement there. BUT, I can say that with the 2 months I have been using this (every other night) that my eye area does seem to look brighter.. not as shadowy and dark. Sometimes this will sting just a bit, but glycolic normally does that so that's ok.
Just a tip- DON'T GET IT IN YOUR EYE. I accidentally rubbed my eye forgetting I had it on and boy was that a mess. My vision was obscured for a few hours. Because this is so greasy, I only apply it at night.
The results are slow, but they seem to be there. I feel like the skin is lighter and tighter and my under eye concealer glides on better. I def feel that the eye area is more moisturized than it used to feel.
I'd recommend trying it, but you do have to give it some time.

I bought this eye cream a few months ago. I've seen a slight improvement with my fine lines, but nothing drastic. I liked it for about a month but then I noticed small bumps forming around my eye area. I never had this problem with any other eye cream I used in the past. I stopped using it every night and the bumps appear to be fading a bit. I don't know if it's the peanut and vegetable oil in the product or the glycoloc acid that is causing small bumps. I will not purchase this product again and I'll move on.

I have mixed feelings about most Mario Badescu products. Some seem very logical and others are either outdated or just don't make sense for 2013. This product I'm pretty happy with. . I'm still using the sample jar, which holds a lot of product given the size. It's been about 2 weeks now and I have to say that when I don't use it I see a difference in fine lines and dryness. I rotate eye creams a lot because I get bored with checking for results and this is among the best.
It's very very emollient, much like what the other reviewers have stated. It does absorb quickly, which I like at night. I'm not afraid of getting it on my (silk satin) pillowcases. It spreads very easily and softens on contact. No stinging, burning, redness, although the 2nd night I used it a white puff appeared, but was gone the next morning. Not sure what that was.
In the morning whatever lines and wrinkles were there are completely smoothed out. When I don't use it, I see a difference. The price is considerable based on the amount of product you get. I don't like the packaging and wish it were a pump/dosage style closure to keep the product fresh and germ free. Clean hands are a must with this jar type.

I really loved this stuff, not sure why everyone else hates it. I think it lasts quite a while and it hydrates great. Not greasy at all! I don't think it helps with fine lines but I am pretty sure nothing can take those away. I always feel great after putting it on at night!

This TOTALLY dried out my under eye area. SO disappointed. Back to the drawing board.....

This was very greasy. I didn't like it at all. I used it once and that was it for me.

I don't know why many people don't like this. This is the best eye cream I have ever tried, and yes I have tried quite some. It's very very hydrating which is what I need to combat those fine lines, it's thick which could be a little hard to absorb but it's the chance i'm willing to take for the hydration. The price is very reasonable, and it works much better than Clinique, philosophy, murad, ...etc
