I am obsessed with eye drops, but guess what? I lose them all the time (you can roll your eyes now)…
And since you should throw it away after 30 days (hygiene reasons), I end up with loads of half used eye drops! Something you can use it for? Mixing with pigments to make it stick better. Just an idea.
I have had my eye on these Eyedew by Optrex drops for ages (nice box!) but they were about £4…a bit steep (cheap? Moi?).
Anyway I bought them the other day because I couldn’t find any of the others I own.
There are two variations – Sparkling (restores brightness) and Dazzling (contains a blue ingredient to make the eyes look whiter).
Its worth noting that these kind of eye drops (whiteners) are not supposed to be used too often.
The eye drops we get over hear are pussy cats compared to the Japanese ones (usually by Rohto) I buy. I don’t know what they hell they put in the Rohto ones but it feels Hydrochloric acid (I’d imagine). I rolled on the floor in pain the first time I used one, but then after your like *zing* – bright white eyes and mascara all down your cheeks…
Anyway back to Optrex…These don’t hurt really, I stuck a few drops in my frequently red eyes and it did an ok job. They looks a bit brighter, they felt better.
They aren’t amazing though – I think Visine Anti Redness Drops do a far far better job (I buy this from eBay, its sold in the US).
Its not a bad-un, it just doesn’t work as well as I hoped.
The best eye lubricant I ever had was from the Eye Hospital – after waiting 7 hours to see a doctor, who said nothing was wrong, the nurse sympathetically gave me some eye drops and some plasters because “It’ll make that long wait feel worth it. Its like pets win prizes on here, no one goes home empty handed.”
And that kids, is why the NHS rocks.
So, tell me – what are your favourite eye drops (if you use them?)
