Questions & Answers for Fresh Lotus Eye Gel

Question
Placement
Do you put this gel right underneath your eye in the sensitive area, or do you apply it on the tops of your cheekbones like regular eye creams and gels?

answer 1
I have sensitive eyes. I use the gel very closely to the skin under my eyes. I also use on my lids and above them. The only thing I do avoid is getting the gel too close to the sides of my eyes. This is to avoid any of it to seep into my eyes. I have been using for a week, results are amazing. I am not having any issues to sensitivity to my eyes with the way I have been applying the gel.

answer 11
As a general rule of thumb, unless otherwise specified, eye creams and treatments are best applied around the orbital bone around the eye area. The delicate skin around the eye absorbs the treatment so it travels to the area in need. Applying too close to the eye can result in product seeping into eyes, which can cause irritation. Hope that helps!

This is a great eye gel that is cooling to the touch and definitely helps to alleviate puffiness and dark circles. Lotus Flower extract helps to calm any inflammation and reduce puffiness and cucumber also helps to soothe any tired skin. It’s great if your main concern is puffiness of the eyes! The cooling sensation also feels very nice and relaxing on the skin.

This is a great product, but I would not use it alone as an overall eye treatment. It's a great rejuvenating product that will perk up the eye area, but I don't find it to be hydrating or moisturizing. If you are concerned with fine lines, wrinkles or dryness, I would definitely use another eye cream or product in conjunction with this one.

If your puffiness is caused by tiredness, environmental factors, etc., then it WILL perk up your eye area and make it look refreshed and brighter. If you have puffiness as a result of genetics (like dark circles), then no, it won't. (I spent so much time trying products for my dark circles until a makeup artist told me that, in my case, they were genetic, and that no product would make them completely go away. Oops!) This is a great gel, though, and it you can feel it working.

Yes. The first time I tried this was after 4 days in Vegas, puffy from staying up late, bloaty from buffet food, and dry from the hot arid desert air. It worked for me, and for me this works better than Burt's Bees, Estee Lauder, Clinique and Dior, hands-down. It's hard finding the perfect product, because we all have different body chemistry and will react differently to different products, but I really hope this works for you. When I love an awesome product I just want it to be awesome for everyone else, too. Good luck!

No, you are better off using a product like Clinique's all about eyes rich. I used this for dark circles (it had no effect) and I noticed more under eye wrinkles, and thus more difficulty applying concealer smoothly, after switching to this product.

Yes, you can store it in the refrigerator. I always store mine in the refrigerator for several reasons. First of all, I love how it refreshens your eyes when you use it, and cold temperature depuff your under eyes faster, it also help reduce the visible pores on your eyes area. Last but not least, it helps your gel lasts longer because gel/creme products tends to change colors if you store it in an unstable temperature place. And store in the refrigerator helps the quality of this product, and other creme and gel products for your skin.

I used the middle finger to gently apply the product all around the top and bottom of my eyes (from brow bone to under the eye where all the yucky circles pop up). The product doesn't specifiy, I don't believe, so I used the gel as both a day and night solution. In the morning your eyes feel light and I noticed a dramatic decrease in puffiness and dark circles.

answer 4
Application - 1) With your ring fingers because they are your weaker fingers, any tugging will not help you achieve your desired results.
2) OR Dampen a cotton ball/pad slightly with cold water and put in the freezer until it has turned slightly into ice. Then apply these "iced" cotton pads over your Lotus Eye Gel to help the product absorb into the under eye area!

Should be applied underneath your make-up!

For more effective and faster results, apply it after you have cleansed and all the other steps in your skin regimen!
For morning/day ie: right before you apply make-up

For night ie: right before you go to bed

The product is best used every time you finish cleansing your face, immediately after cleansing. It takes a couple minutes to fully absorb, so I'd recommend waiting a minute or two before applying any eye makeup or under-eye concealer.

I usually pump a bit onto my pinkie and apply it around my eyes, underneath and in the corners. And I recommend using it at night, after you've cleaned and moisturized your face. That works well for me, personally.
During the day, the gel feels a bit oily - but that could be my skin. I have oil control issues.
Hope this helps!
