How To Use The Refinery Eye Gel

In The Mankind Christmas Collection: The GQ Edition, you’ll receive a full sized Eye Gel. What more could you ask for? It’s perfect at reducing puffiness, redness and other signs of tiredness. The gel is enriched with Aloe Vera, which helps to soothe the skin and reduce inflammation. Not only that, but it also moisturises and repairs.

Watch our video on how to apply The Refinery Eye Gel here.


Step 1: Apply to finger tips.

We’d always recommend using your ring finger, as it’s the gentlest. However, we know it’s easier to use your index finger, so give that a try if you’re new to eye creams. Just make sure you apply as little pressure as possible.

Step 2: Apply around eye socket.

One common mistake people make when applying eye cream, is applying it directly to the skin around the eyes. The main problem here is that the skin around your eyes is the thinnest, which means your product can travel into your eye. To avoid this, apply around your orbital bone and you’ll be good to go.

Step 3: Pat from centre of the eye.

Did you know your body has an internal system that aids in the draining of toxins and waste? By working your eye cream from the inside of the eye to the outside, you can assist this process. This helps relieve puffiness and irritation, which is always a bonus.

Final Thoughts

Adding an eye cream to your routine is a step every guy should take. It’s usually an area most people forget to look after and shows the signs of tiredness before anywhere else. The Refinery don’t just offer this eye cream, they’ve also got an incredible range of grooming products you should try.
