In my experience, sweat in the eyes + contacts = HOLY CRAP OW. But I'd never play without them

You can stick it in the freezer before you play and it helps keep you cool for a while- and 2. I don't need a sweatband anymore because the gel actually directs the sweat away from my eyes and down the side of my face. Really good stuff.
As a goalie I'd like some more info on that...

And advice to the OP, really all I can say is if you're using a full face cage, just swing the cage forward on the bench and wipe your face down. Something you have to learn to deal with, I guess *shrug*
