whay is your best product to eliminate undereye puffiness?
A shopper on Apr 7, 2012
Best Answer: I've used this product for a couple of years now. At first it was great, but I'm getting diminishing returns the more I use it. I was thinking about trying the midnight concentrate stuff - a friend loves it.

Eye Alert does a great initial mask of of lines/puffiness though, if you want a short-term solution.

are you meant to use this on your actual eyelids as well? I have dry skin on my eyelid area
Benjamin D on Sep 17, 2013
Best Answer: Yes, The best aspect of this product is that you can use it over your entire eye and it does not cause any irritation. It is a great moisturizer - I use it twice a day everyday. Most eye creams burn if you get them in your eye trying to apply it. It is my favorite eye cream.

How long does the effect last?
A shopper on Mar 13, 2013
Best Answer: I use Eye Alert in the morning under my makeup and the evening under my moisurizer which noticeably diminishes puffiness, dark circles and lines. If I stop using it for several days the puffiness & darkness returns.

Is this product used over or under an eye cream?
Leeanne H on Feb 20, 2015
Best Answer: When I use this product it is as a standalone. If you really wanted to use both this procudt and an eye cream I would suggest applying the cream after using the Eye Alert (and allowing it to dry completely) so that it can hold and take effect. One great thing about Eye Alert is that it is very light and great for the very delicate skin around the eye, especially the bottom portion.

It this product good for African American men?
Mike J on Aug 24, 2014
Best Answer: I'm not African American, but the product, I think, is designed essentially to keep the tender skin under your eyes less dry and stimulated so you look and even feel more alert. Try it. It's pretty cool (literally and figuratively). I've used it for years. I hope this helps.
