Body Merry Age Defense Eye Cream is a light eye cream that contains peptides, retinols and other known “anti-aging” ingredients.
I received a complimentary bottle of Body Merry Eye Cream to facilitate this review. I also include an affiliate link at the end of this message. If you click on the link and make a purchase, you support Feeling Fit, Bit by Bit with a modest commission.
I have been using Body Merry Age Defense Eye Cream for a couple of weeks. I haven’t been using it long enough to notice any anti-aging results. My impressions so far are that it is a light consistency eye cream that is absorbed into the skin quickly. It smells pleasant, I cannot really identify the scent. The scent is mild, but kind of sweet smelling.
Body Merry Age Defense Eye Cream leaves the skin around my eyes feeling soft and smooth but not too oily or waxy. It seems gentle as I haven’t experienced any irritation, I have felt irritation from some other eye creams as the skin around my eyes is sensitive. It can be worn under makeup as it is absorbed quickly, i mainly use it at night due to the retinol content.
Body Merry claims it can help with “dark circles, wrinkles, puffiness, crow’s feet, fine lines, dryness, sags or bags”. I think my dark circles may be a little less noticeable and the skin does feel tighter and well moisturized.
Features and Benefits:
- 1 ounce pump bottle — 1 drop is enough for the night
- Can be used day or night, according to Body Merry. I use it in the evening as it contains retinols
- Made in the USA
- FDA registered & GMP compliant facility
- Free of: parabens, sulfates, and phthalates
Body Merry Age Defense Eye Cream had over 70 ingredients. I am not sure whether this is a plus or a minus. Many of the ingredients are very popular in anti-aging skin care products, but I tend to think the more ingredients the higher the odds it may trigger sensitivities and bad reactions.
Here are just some of the key ingredients according to the “Body Merry” Website:
The Hard Hitters: Peptide Complex + Amino Acid Emulsification + Antioxidants + Hyaluronic Acid + RetinolThe Vitamins: Vitamin C (2 types!) + Vitamin E + Vitamin B5The Organic Ones: Aloe + Rose Hip Oil + Jojoba Oil + Coconut Oil + Beeswax + Cranberry + Licorice + Sunflower Oil + Borage Oil + Flaxseed Oil + Evening Primrose Oil + Lavender + Calendula + ChamomileJust Some of the Others: Witch Hazel + Glycolic Acid + MSM + Cocoa Butter + Cucumber + Green Tea + Bearberry + Blueberry + Oregon Grape + Eyebright + Coenzyme Q10 + Lemon + Lemongrass + Apple + Sugarcane + Grapeseed Oil + Macadamia Nut Oil + Palm Oil + Tamanu Oil + Raspberry Seed Oil + Avocado Oil

Warning for Those with Nut Allergies: Body Merry Age Defense Eye Cream contains tree nut oils.
I admit, I was not normally in the habit of using an eye cream. I have never been sure why the skin around the eyes needs a different moisturizer than the rest of the face. After using Body Merry Age Defense Eye Cream a couple weeks I am beginning to understand some of the benefits of using an eye cream. The consistency is lighter than typical facial moisturizers so it is easier absorbed. Because it absorbs quickly, you can wear it under makeup. My skin does feel a little tighter after application, but I am not sure whether there is any noticeable difference. I think eye creams in general are a nice-to-have product especially if someone has issues with dark circles, bags under the eyes or needs a lighter moisturizer around the eyes.
