Bright Eyed Beauty - Optrex Eyedew Dazzling Drops and Acti-Mist 2-in-1 Spray

I can spend a lot of time in front of a computer all day and since I started wearing contacts, I've really noticed it taking its toll on my eyes, at times leaving them dry, irritated and tired.

Your eyes are precious, so it's essential to look after them properly.
Having dry, sore and tired eyes is no fun at all let me tell you! So it was with perfect timing that Optrex came to my rescue with their Acti-Mist 2-in-1 Spray and Eyedew Dazzling Eye Drops.

The Optrex ActiMist 2-in-1 Dry + Irritated Eye Spray is ideal for those who aren't too keen on eye droppers, or those or are a bit squeamish about foreign objects near your eyes - with this handy spray you simply just spritz it over closed eyes - neat, huh?

All you have to do is close your eyes and spray the solution onto your lids, providing moisture and stabilising the eyes lipid layer to soothe and comfort tiredness and irritation. The coolness of the liquid refreshes eyes and provides instant relief, while not smudging makeup or even having an impact on contact lenses.

The bottle is so minuscule that it's perfect for popping into your handbag for use when you're on the go, at the office or even taking to festivals or gigs when smokey atmospheres can aggravate and irritate your eyes. You need such a tiny spray which will soothe and aid your eyes for up to 4 hours, so the bottle can last up to 6 months - as well as removing the need to throw away eye drops after a couple of weeks for fear of infection. Very hygienic - which is a HUGE plus in my books!

Next up is the Optrex Eyedew Dazzling Drops.

I just want to make a note here for any contact lens wearers - whilst the ActiMist Spray can be applied at any time - the Eyedew Dazzling Eye Drops advise not to use whilst wearing, or just before you pop in your contacts - instead, use the Dazzling Eye Drops 15 mins prior and then you should be good to go! :)

The Eyedew Dazzling Eye Drops actually contain a clever blue ingredient which makes the white of your eyes look even white and brighter. They help to restore your eyes natural brightness, revealing beautiful clear eyes.

I noticed the visible eye whitening and brightening effects pretty much instantly after using them. I can see these coming in very handy if you want to banish the effects of the night before ;)

Again, these come in a tidy little 10ml bottle - just the perfect size to pop into your handbag and you can easily take these in your hand luggage on board flights also as they're well under the 100ml allowance.

I can honestly say that my eyes feel so much more refreshed and rested after using these products. The results are pretty much instantaneous so you can see and feel them working straight away after using and you can top up through out the day should you feel you need to.

My tips to get that wide eyed, awake and alert bright eyed look:

  • * Use Optrex Eyedew Dazzling Drops beforehand
  • * Use a flesh toned eyeliner such as Essence's Almost Famous Liner - a nice peachy toned colour.       White can be too hard to use on your waterline - a skin tone looks much better!
  • * Concealer can also be used on your waterline to make your eyes POP
  • * I like to use Catrice Camouflage cream with an angled liner brush and gently dab it on my waterline
  • * I find the skin tones look far better on the waterline opposed to stark whites and they really                contrast with the white of your eyes
  • * Finish with your favourite mascara - I like Benefit's They're Real Mascara
  • * Use Optrex ActiMist 2-in-1 Spray throughout the day to refresh your eyes (without smudging your      makeup!) as required :)
