I’m in my 30s, and while I don’t like to admit it, I can see signs of aging. I swear it’s all happened within the 3 years since having my daughter. I’m not one to spend much time primping at the mirror or worrying about how I look, but to be honest, I still find my appearance surprising. When did this happen? I have crows feet. Not terrible, but … they’re there. They snuck up on me. So, I was happy when I was given the opportunity to test and review Body Merry Age Defense Eye Cream. I received no further compensation for this post.
When I opened the bottle to use it the first time, I was surprised by how quickly and how much came out. Over subsequent uses, I was more easily able to regulate how much product I received from the bottle at one time. Additionally, I instantly fell in love with the mild, natural scent of the cream.
The cream itself appeared thick, but rubbed into the skin looking a bit watery. Looks are deceiving, as my eyes felt very moisturized and the cream didn’t feel heavy or thick on my skin. I found this to be a pleasant addition to my morning routine. While I typically just get up and run to the kiddo’s room to start the day, I found myself making a beeline to my bathroom to apply the eye cream. It’s currently the one thing I do, everyday, that is making me put “me first”. Such a simple and pleasing thing to do before focusing on the kid the rest of the day. And because it’s such a fresh scent, it’s not off-putting or overpowering.

I never noticed any irritation. I was pleased with the product and it has become a routine part of my day. That’s really saying something since I’ve never had a facial care routine before now. After about 2 weeks of use, my crows feet were still pretty prominent, but I noticed less under-eye puffiness. I hadn’t realized how bad the puffiness was until I began to take pictures for this post, so I was glad to see some results once I noticed. There were no other changes to my day or night either, so I can only think to attribute it to Body Merry eye cream. A friend of mine recently commented on my appearance, asking if I was feeling better. Apparently I looked better than I had in a while. Could it be coincidence?
If you’re interested, you can find Body Merry Age Defense Eye Cream on Amazon for about $30.
