|Bobbi Brown Hydrating Eye Cream||
Bobbi Brown Hydrating Eye Cream is a tiny 0.5-ounce container of eye cream that sells for around $50. A large price tag like that should mean there are quite a few positive reviews, which is exactly what we found, but on the flip side of those positive reviews are a number of negative reviews. Not all consumers are sold on the hydrating power or concealer support of Bobbi Brown Hydrating Eye Cream.
Bobbi Brown Hydrating Eye Cream is a thin cream designed to be applied under the eye before applying concealer. Many consumers have issues with concealer settling into the fine lines under the eye where it cakes up and dries out. To combat this, a foundation of sorts can be used to hydrating the area and fill the fine lines so the makeup cannot settle there. Bobbi Brown Hydrating Eye Cream claims to be one of those products. Application is simple enough; the consumer simply applies a small amount under the eye with a patting motion. Allow the cream time to absorb fully before applying concealer or foundation.
We found a short list of ingredients on a third-party website, but the Bobbi Brown website does not list the ingredients. We expected reviews on the Bobbi Brown website to be all positive, but we found quite a few from consumers who did not like the product claiming it simply did not work as claimed. The ingredients listed as being part of the cream include Avocado Oil, Jojoba Oil and Aloe Vera. There’s even a bit of witch hazel to soothe the area under the eye.
We are slightly concerned about several reports of burning and drying under the eye after application. Without a complete list of ingredients we have no idea what ingredient could cause this burning, but it could be an alcohol-based ingredient.

The Bottom Line
Bobbi Brown Hydrating Eye Cream is not necessarily the best eye cream on the market. If the consumer is going to pay $50 for less than one ounce of eye cream that cream should never cause burning or dryness and it should work as claimed.
