Product Review: Murad Essential-C Eye Cream SPF 15

Hello, everyone!

I’ve mentioned Murad products on the blog before (here and here), so I thought I’d do a quick review of Murad’s Essential-C Eye Cream SPF 15.

I’ve been using this product for about a year and have been happy with it overall. I chose it because it has an SPF, which my pale skin and aging eyes need. It moisturizes well, and although the bottle is only .5 ounces, it last for several months.

While I wish the SPF were slightly higher – SPF 20 or even 30 – the downside is really the packaging. The plastic cap breaks easily, so I find this product slightly difficult to travel with. Maybe I’m too hard on my luggage, but every bottle I’ve had has cracked or broken any time I’ve traveled with it, so I end up with a bit of a gooey mess in my toiletries bag. I’ve started putting it in its own plastic bag to at least contain the mess, but it’s still annoying. I’m almost out of my current bottle, so I think I’m going to try something else with travel-friendly packaging next. And I’ll get something with a higher SPF while I’m at it.
