How & Where To Apply Eye Cream

    Step 1: How & Where to Apply Eye Cream

    Always use your ring finger to apply your eye cream, as it has the lightest touch so not to irritate your delicate eye area.

    Where to put eye cream:

    Dot eye cream under the eyes, onto the eye lid, in the eye socket and along the top of your cheekbone.

    Step 2: Gently Tap Out Eye Cream

    Gently tap in along your brow bone, too. Because of the delicate nature around your eyes, you shouldn’t apply directly on your eyelid or directly under your lower lash line, as it spreads when it warms up on your skin.

    Step 3: Depuff the look of the Eye Area

    Continue to tap in the product to decrease any puffiness and allow the cream to work into your skin. Your eye cream before and after will result in smoother-looking under eyes that appear firmer, brighter, and more hydrated.

How To Apply Eye Serum

Charlotte's Magic Eye Rescue eye cream pairs beautifully with Cryo-Recovery Eye Serum! Both can be applied as a part of your depuff-effect eye care routine to help eyes to look smoother and brighter.

First, glide the contoured metal applicator of Cryo-Recovery Eye Serum along the eye area to provide a boost with cryotherapy-inspired ingredients and energising caffeine. Then, once your serum has absorbed into the skin, apply Magic Eye Rescue to further nourish the eye area.
