Q&A: Are there other uses for the eye gel?

question for batty

Hi Batty!

Since I use such a tiny amount of the soothing eye gel, it seems like the jar will last a lifetime. Are there any other uses for it?

Thanks for any tips and tricks in advance

batty's answersoothing eye gelHi there!

Well, the eye gel is a hydrating product, so it can be used any place that hydration is needed. Although, it has stimulating ingredients (to reduce dark eye circles over time), so I would avoid using it on any skin that is irritated in any way (i.e. any skin that is sore due to something like acne or rosacea). If you have dry feet, elbows, legs, hands, or knees, you could mix the eye gel with a moisturizer or serum (half and half) and apply that for a super dose of hydration!
I hope that helps :)

Customer Review: Really reduces swelling

cystic acne mask

Cystic acne can be a painful process in more ways that one; Not only is it a pain the rear, but can actually cause physical pain due to inflammation and irritation of the skin. Batty’s Bath cystic acne mask was designed with target the external causes of acne all while calming and healing those angry pores.

Here’s what Kiley has to say about the cystic acne mask.

“Like many other people, I have suffered with the occasional cystic acne bump. This product works really great for me! Not in the “it’s a miracle my acne is gone” type of way. That type of product doesn’t exist. This mask dries your acne and reduces the swelling of existing bumps without causing your face to get dry in the process. I’ve been using this product about twice a week for two months and have seen that I don’t have any new cystic bumps forming and the bumps that I did have slowly went down in redness and size. I highly recommend this product!”

- Kiley  (cystic acne mask)

Thanks Kiley for your honest review! We are happy to hear you’re seeing improvement in your sensitive skin.

Q&A: Which product(s) could be causing my dry and flaky skin? (CONTINUED)

question for batty
Hi Batty,

You were right, it was the gel not absorbing. I tried the tips and so far they’ve worked, so thank you! No more flakes. The crinkles at my eyes are still there, but not as severe. Maybe I should just use the products at night?

Just wondering for future use, would I have to continue using a scrub and/or  face cloth daily in order for the gels to always absorb? My face is not used to so much scrubbing; I haven’t used a face cloth since 1993. (And yes, I’m being very gentle; and am using a Norwex baby cloth so it’s extremely soft micro fibre.)

Thanks again for your help!

batty's answer
Hey Again!

I’m glad to hear the flakes are gone!

Hydra Healing Skin Rescue GelI think for further use, yes, night time sounds like the best time for your skin – that way, when you wash your face in the morning you don’t have to worry about any un-absorbed product hanging around during the day!

I think after some time you might not have to exfoliate as much, but it will depend on how your skin reacts with repeated hydration treatments. I think that focusing on absorption will be key – and by that I mostly mean making it as easy as possible for your skin to put the gel products to use… and for now, mixing them with other products your skin already absorbs well is the best course of action. I wouldn’t hurt to use your super soft wash cloth after using the mask (because you’ll be applying a thicker layer of it) for the foreseeable future. And using the cloth until your skin starts to take in the products more readily would be advised as well.

When you get to the point where the gel products you have are almost empty, we can look into if they are a good idea to stick with, or if switch up the hydration part of your routine would be a better idea. For example, if your skin is reacting the same way after using up a full jar of hydra gel (that you’re mixing with a serum or moisturizer for optimal absorption), switching to the hydration mist and/or serum would be what I’d suggest. The mist and serum absorb well into even the most stubborn of skin… and they won’t leave behind the flakey / tight symptoms that you’ve experienced with the gel products. We might even find that after using the mist and serum as the hydration part of your routine for several months that your skin is more open / able to absorb the gel products.

Time will tell!

Let me know if I can be of any more help or if you have any more questions. Have a great week!
