Murad Lighten & Brighten Eye Treatment is an eye cream that claims to be able to dramatically reduce dark circles, under-eye bags and related signs of environmental damage.
Retailing for about $70 for .5 fluid ounces, it is quite expensive, but it claims to be worth the price. Murad Lighten & Brighten Eye Treatment contains hydroquinone, which reduces dark under-eye circles; while the peptides in this product blends with firming and conditioning agents to diminish the appearance of under-eye bags and puffiness.
If the formula of these two ingredients is effective Murad Lighten & Brighten Eye Treatment would be a great eye cream. It might even be worth every penny you pay for it.
Palmitoyl tetrapeptide-7 and palmitoyl oligopeptide are the key ingredients in this eye cream. They are essential ingredients in any face cream or product. Peptides are made up of chains of amino acids that stimulate your skin’s production of collagen. As you get older, your skin produces less collagen. That’s why you develop wrinkles and your skin becomes thinner and more prone to dark circles and blemishes. When more collagen is present, wrinkles and fine lines will be diminished. Skin will be fuller and look more clear, healthy, and beautiful.
Hydroquinone is the other important ingredient in Murad Lighten & Brighten Eye Treatment. It lightens skin and restores texture and brightness to the complexion.
These three ingredients are all great. The only problem is that we don’t know if the manufacturer of this eye cream included an effective dose of each ingredient. Even the most beneficial ingredient won’t be effective unless a large enough amount is used. Because we don’t know the ingredient amounts in Murad Lighten & Brighten Eye Treatment, it is hard for us to say whether or not the eye cream will be effective.
We are also concerned because Murad Lighten & Brighten Eye Treatment contains a paraben. This ingredient is known to be harmful and may cause skin irritation. There is a small chance that it could cause skin cancer too.
Murad Lighten & Brighten Eye Treatment is a high quality product. However, you could probably find an eye cream that lists ingredient amounts (effective amounts of course) and can be purchased for an affordable price. We would not recommend using a product that has parabens of any kind.
