I mentioned in my monthly wish list for July that I planned on purchasing this Bobbi Brown Extra Eye Repair Cream ($70) to help with the incredibly dry skin around my eyes. Immediately after I wrote that post I placed an order for the eye cream through Barneys New York. It arrived a few days later in the mail and I immediately put it to use.
I had used the Bobbi Brown Extra Eye Repair Cream in the past but refrained from buying it due to the high price tag. However, since I hadn't found anything better since then and my skin was getting worse, I figured it was time to go back to what's tried and true.
A few months ago the outer corners of my eyes started to develop eczema and I was prescribed a steroid cream by a dermatologist. While the cream helped, the dermatologist told me I should stop using it after a few weeks and to substitute with Aquaphor. However, every time I switched to using Aquaphor the eczema would come back and I'd have to using the steroid cream all over again.
When I started using the Bobbi Brown Extra Eye Repair Cream my skin got much better. I quickly saw a huge improvement, the skin around my eyes was no longer red and the dryness began to go away. In order to apply I like to use my ring finger to lightly tap the product around my eyes, focusing on the outer corners. Although you only get .05 oz of product, you only need the tiniest amount to cover the eye area; my previous jar lasted me about a year.
