Hi,
Today I modeled degergent bottle. It was an excellent object to experience the Shark’s Surface Tools. As usual, I met a lot of inconvenience. Perhaps the plan modeling workflow was not correct. But I did not find another way to do this shape. Here is what I wanted to do.

I created the basic form of the object and cut out a hole that must be covered with a concave surface.
To begin with, I experienced a Tagent Cover Surface tool. I was immediately punished for this idea. It was not the right way. Probably the best way is Guide Loft Surface.

I created the guides, but I ran into the first problem. I could not connect the curves to the edges of the surface. What is wrong? In any case, it did not work for me.

Then I used Explode Curve tool. I got two Control Point Splines. It was second problem. The guides were «glued» to the control points, but not to the spline. Converting to Interpolate Spline would disrupt the shape of the object. Finally I got the cover. But it was not the smooth surface that I expected to see. Of course, blending off edges can be forgotten. It will not work with this geometry.

I previewed a lot of videos about modeling of objects like this bottle. Why can I not achieve the desired shape? What am I doing wrong?
By the way, I already finished this bottle. Simply interesting is the opinion of the more experienced.

Maybe I would have done this different like doing a negative on the indentation or do a project curve onto surface to divide it, then make handle hole and put blends on every edge.

Yes, probably my plan is not optimal. I considered various options. But I still have to somehow connect all the parts.
Besides, I did not understand you very well. :)

I added the base model. Both models are here: https://www.dropbox.com/...h1q0fdKxEkN7x-lOTIa?dl=0

Maybe you need more control points to smooth things out. I highlighted two areas. I think doing control point splines is not my best approach. I like things to connect.

No. A large number of control points is always a source of problems.

maybe move the second point from the line at the front towards the left. It adjusts better.

Of course it will be better. But it will be a different shape. Usually I try to do that I need. Not what Shark offers me. :)
