Murad’s Resurgence Renewing Eye Cream Review

Brighter, Younger Eyes, Finally?

There’s a relatively new eye cream in town and it’s receiving some pretty good reviews.

The product is by Murad and it’s called Resurgence Renewing Eye Cream.

As usual, we’re going to take a minute to check out the ingredients to see if the product can actually stand up to its claims.

We’ll also take a look at what users are saying about it and decide whether it’s worth the money, or whether you should just skip it and keep looking.

What Murad Claims

According to Murad, this eye cream will brighten your eyes by reducing dark circles and illuminating the eye area. They also say that it will improve elasticity and increase moisture, thus making your skin firmer. It supposedly does this using their wild yam and soybean sterols.

Next, they claim that it reduces medium to deep wrinkles using Palmitoyl Pentapeptide-3 and will calm and hydrate skin using panthenol.

What’s It REALLY Do?

Unlike many of their brethren, Murad actually lists what’s in the Resurgence Eye Cream. A closer look at the actual ingredients list reveals that it does indeed contain wild yam extract, soybean sterols, palmitoyl penta-and-tetrapetides, retinol, and evening primrose oil. These are all good anti-aging ingredients. Panthenol’s in there too, but it’s pretty far down the list.

There are several different fruit and flower extracts that have antioxidants, proteins, and vitamins that are good for your skin.

There are also a couple of ingredients such as lecithin, silica and boron nitride that act as illusory ingredients. In other words, they make it look and feel like your skin is soft and your wrinkles are reduced by smoothing them out, filling them in, or causing light to refract off of your skin, thus hiding flaws.

Finally, there’s titanium dioxide which is a sunscreen.

What Do Users Say?

For the most part, the reviews are good on the Resurgence Eye Cream. Here’s a list of the pros and cons that users seem to agree upon:


  • Only required a small amount. Less than one pump does both eyes.
  • Reduces crepiness
  • Plumps skin
  • Reduces laugh lines and crow’s feet
  • Diminishes puffiness
  • Works for under eye dark circles


  • Not good for sensitive skin – may cause a burning sensation
  • Expensive
  • Opinions differ about the moisturizing power

Final Word

My only concern with this product is that it contains the faker ingredients that make your skin feel soft and look like it has less wrinkles. It also has parabens in it, which is an issue for some. It is, however, made without sulfates, synthetic fragrances, petrochemicals, phthalates, GMOs or triclosan.

For the most part, this cream has ingredients that may be beneficial to your skin. It’s got great user reviews, especially from the over-50 set. Since it’s made without most of the nasties that other creams have, it may well be worth a try. Click here to find the best deal on Murad’s Resurgence Eye Cream.

    Don’t all soybean sterols contain GMOs, because virtually all soybeans are genetically modified.
    I don’t think it can be claimed that any product with soy is GMO free, & that is a very serious objection.

      Hi Nana, thanks for pointing that out. There are definitely soybeans that aren’t genetically modified but because so many of them are, we are forced to depend upon the company to reliably relay the origins of their ingredients. If that’s the case, though, where do we draw the line?
