the usage directions say to pat it gently (okay, it's the eye. who punches herself in the eye??) over the eye area. But, it seems to only impart a "beautiful, subtle glow to the undereye area". okay.... need a bit more info, more specifics... Is that available?
They only say to pat it to emphasize the fact that your under-eye area is very sensitive. Any rubbing or extra pressure you apply while putting on this product is basically reversing what this product is supped to do (prevent wrinkles). After maybe 2 weeks of applying in the mornings and evenings, I personally saw improvement in the puffiness and wrinkles under my eyes. The skin felt healthier, not exactly brighter as they claim, but there was improvement. Keep in mind that no one's skin is the same, and you may see improvements in shorter or longer time than I did.

This provides moisture but it also contains Retynal Palmitate (Vitamin A retinol) that reduces wrinkles in about 4 to 6 months; it also helps prevent wrinkles for years to come.

That is so interesting because it happened to me too! I honestly didn't connect it to the 5 in 1 until I saw your comment

Hi, the only thing I can say is that it adds a burn to your eyes! This formula felt wet on my eyes for over an hour and irritated the skin. I saw no visible glow or anything positive.

Apply as you would any eye cream. Gentle, tapping motion. I didn't see results after several weeks with this one. Good luck!

Goes on nice and smooth and does give your eyes a bit more "refreshed" look and feel, not too heavy.

First Aid Beauty uses the most effective ingredients to combat ageing; in the 5 in 1 Eye Cream, Alpha Arbutin acts as a long-term brightener and pigment regulator, while light reflecting agents give the eye area that immediate bright, fresh look.
I don't know about the "beautiful, subtle glow" but it cleared up the unsightly dry skin under my eyes, so I'll take their description of it! As far as application of the product, I usually use my pinky fingers or my ring fingers to apply products under the eye because those fingers have less strength, and you're less likely to tug at the delicate skin under your eyes. I don't tap it, I gently smooth it on.
It isn't a brightener, but is soothing and lightweight but VERY moisturizing, which helps as the undereye area doesn't need an oily texture cream, but gets very dry and needs a lot of protection. Makes dry, creased areas look soothed and clearer.
