UPDATE TO ORIGINAL POST (See original post below): Control Cream has been pulled from the market because it is believed that it contained undisclosed corticosteroids. And if you can find someone selling the 'old' formula (pre-March 2013), DO NOT purchase it!!! Or if you are still using the old formula, STOP!! For all of you who are new here and suffering from what you think is a 'reaction' to the 'new formula' (Mario Badescu 'reformulated' Control Cream--i.e., likely removed the working ingredients, the corticosteroids--in Feb/Mar 2013), be aware that you are likely suffering from topical corticosteroid withdrawal (TCW) as it is firmly believed that this very deceitful, unethical company had been adding undisclosed corticosteroids to both its Control Cream and Healing Cream, both of which the company is no longer selling. In short, you have been applying harmful, addictive corticosteroids to your face!!! THIS is why these products worked so very well for your ailments!! BUT corticosteroids are intended to be used for only 14 days maximum! (And some corticosteroids, the ones suspected to have been added to Control Cream and Healing Cream, should NEVER BE APPLIED TO THE FACE!) When used for long periods of time, corticosteroids can cause irreparable damage to the skin. And when corticosteroids are abruptly stopped, the skin will respond most negatively (redness, blistering, burning, stinging, itching, pustules, papules, dryness, etc.), sound familiar? Contact me: RustiRestaino at gmail dot com if you have questions. We got F'd people!! Be sure to report your experience to the FDA through Medwatch. Google FDA Medwatch and report!!

I had tried everything from vaseline through baby oil though neosporin and prescription creams and nothing solved the intensely painful and scabby condition on my eyelid. After three days of using this product, the rash, the scaly skin and the pain is gone. Amazing.

A day or two before Christmas, I suffered some sort of allergic reaction, which resulted in scaly, puffy, super-dry eyelids that got worse every day. It is no exaggeration to say that by December 26, I looked about 15 years older. Any moisturizers--including the high-end Oil of Olay items I use, burned and irritated the area more. Petroleum jelly worked to moisturize the area for bedtime, but each day I would wake with Betty Davis, circa age 90, eyes. To top it off, this was painful...it was irritated to the touch.

I consulted forum after forum online and on the advice of other people who once had the same ailment, I ordered the Mario Badescu Control Creme, which is apparently 100% natural. It arrived yesterday afternoon. I tried it immediately and felt IMMEDIATE relief. I used it again at bedtime, and voila! I woke this morning to the eyes I am more accustomed to seeing in the mirror. No tightness. Wrinkling is gone. The area around the eye is soft and more youthful looking!

I have never heard of Mario Badescu, but I plan to do some research into other products right away.

The item was shipped directly from Mario Badescu in New York City, AND included a small bag of lotion samples AND a large cosmetic bag with substantial samples of cleanser, lotion, and toner.

As other reviewers have stated (and where I learned about this) this was a miracle cream for red, itchy flaking skin on the eyelid. After one night of a applying it a little thick it was almost resolved. After the second night my eyelid was back to normal.

My baby started to get eczema around her face when she was about 4 months old. We talked to our pediatrician who recommended we use 1% hydrocortizone cream. But since it is steroid medication, you have to be careful not to overuse it and stop once you start seeing improvement. After using for 2-3 days, it was getting better but the eczema returned after about a week. Then one of my friends recommended this control cream and it is wonderful. It is a natural cream and not medication so you can be liberal with it. After about one week, my daughter's eczema cleared completely! Now we just use it once a day in the morning as a moisturizer and the eczema has never come back in the past 2 months. I have since shown this to our pediatrician, too. Highly highly recommend this cream. It is not that big but we are still using the jar for more than 2 months, so there's plenty there.

Pretty much out of the blue, my eyes went from normal to swollen overnight and then the skin on my eyelids and under my eyes were chapped. It was if my eyes had gotten a fever and then the skin started peeling around them. They itched very badly as well and I suffer form allergies and thought maybe this was the problem. I googled this condition and found several blogs where people talked about the same thing and how it just came out of the blue, overnight pretty much. Everything I read, I was experiencing and I finally came across someone who specifically named this cream and how it worked fast and amazingly well. I got onto Amazon and found it and ordered it immediately. As soon as I received it, I applied several applications and my eyes were better over night. I've continued to use it and I can say that after 3 days, my eyes looked normal again, the skin was no longer peeling and the itching had gone away almost instantly. This amazing cream does not burn either, in fact, it's very cooling to my eyes. Before I used this cream, I looked like I had aged 10 years and this cream took that away completely. I recommend this cream to anyone with these symptoms, it's amazing! One more thing...I got several nice sized samples of Mario Badescu products with my order...very nice! :o)
