We can never guarantee results as everybody has different skin. However, we did design the eye gel for exactly your problem of very dry skin around the eyes. We included inside the product an active natural ingredient called Cardiospermum which customers have told us has a fantastic effect on their skin. The gel itself is also moisturising. So hopefully it will help you. As with all products please do a patch test first.
That is an unusual combination. Usually the oiliness from your scalp should prevent dryness. I suspect that the dryness is actually either a chemical intolerance in which case the dry scalp shampoo should be excellent or a yeast or fungus based infection of your scalp. In which case the Oregon shampoo would be better as it contains an anti-dandruff ingredient.
Both are moisturising and are not designed for greasy hair but more aimed at dry hair.
In this instance, I would recommend asking a doctor to look at your scalp and check the cause of the dryness.
This is a very difficult question to answer as everyone's skin is different and it also depends on the severity of your eczema. Also bare in mind that Hydrosil Dry Eye Gel is not a medication, and so it has to work in harmony with your skin's natural pace.
However most people tend to see an improvement in 2-3 weeks, though if your eczema is very severe this may take longer. You should also make sure that you are not using any other products around your eyes that may aggravate them, in particular make up removers, cleansers that contain chemicals or eye make up that contains glitter or very bright colours. Waterproof mascara can also be an irritant and is also problematic to remove as requires harsh cleansing or make up removers that contain detergents to dissolve the mascara.
In addition many chemical sun creams can also irritate the skin around the eyes if its prone to eczema, as can concealers containing SPF's. It's best to use pure mineral SPF's and mineral based concealers.
We would never recommend that you stop any prescription medication in favour of our products. However if you have already decided to do this and you are experiencing worse symptoms this could be due to your skin reacting to coming off steroids. This is very common and symptoms can get significantly worse for a period, especially if you have been taking them for some time. People can go on develop a condition called 'red skin syndrome' after stopping steroids, where by their skin is very red and inflamed and sometimes it can even blister.
If you are experiencing worse symptoms after coming off steroids we recommend you see your doctor for advice.
Thanks for contacting us.
You do need to click the Dry Eye Concealer a lot of times. Click it continuously (not too fast) until you see the product appearing in the product appearing in the clear little window just below the lid.
We know this is a pain on the first go, but once the product is pumped up to the top of the tube it then dispenses on one or two clicks easily. It's a new airless tube that keeps the product super hygienic. This is crucial as its such a natural product.
The only downside is that the product does need to be pumped up from the bottom of the tube on first use.
Please persevere with the pumps until you see the product appearing in the little window and then a few pumps more and you will be it appearing in the brush head.
Sorry you are having a few problems with your concealer.
Sometimes if you push the clicker dispenser too fast or too many times it can jam. It can be freed by either pushing it in fast and releasing it or pushing your thumb onto it and sliding it off in a way that frees the mechanism. Another way of describing it is a flicking motion. If this fails a light tap on the side of the tube can free it.
Please try the above. If that doesn't work please contact us and we'll see what we can do.

In one recent double blind study carried out in Germany Cardiospermum was found to have a significant anti-inflammatory effect without any side effects.
Another study, published in the Journal of Medical Plant Research, found that out of six medicinal plants tested for their anti-bacterial actions, Cardiospermum was found to be the most effective at fighting common skin bacteria that often gets into open eczema sores making the condition worse.
UK Consumer Trial
The trial on Hydrosil Dry Skin Gel was carried out by a UK doctor, on 50 people. The trial found that the Dry Skin Gel was both more effective and significantly more pleasant to use than all existing treatment the patients had tried.
