Boots Brightening Eye Drops
Advantages: Work well
Just recently I have noticed that my eyes are a bit dull and often have red veins appearing quite a bit. They are really tired as I have two young children. I have seen the optician so its nothing bad but they use are being a bit over worked and do not look as sparkling as I would like them to look. The red veins appear when I have been wearing my contacts for quite a while so I try to limit my usage but that doesn't always work out and I think the red veins really make my eyes look sore and not very nice. I have been using Boots dry eye eye drops for a while now and they are really helping to keep my eyes moist, especially at night at the end of a long day but those drops don't really work on dull, red eyes. I decided to try the Boots brightening eye drops as I am pleased with the dry eye ones and hoped they would work the same.
These drops are especially formulated for brightness and Boots say that they are ideal for enhancing the natural brightness of your eyes. This is exactly what I wanted them for so I was hoping they would work well. The drops are said to work on all eye colours and contain natural plant extracts.
The drops are really easy to use and I don't really find it a problem to drop the liquid into my eyes. The drops come in a little 10ml bottle. This cost me just £3.69 from Boots which I though was a really good price as I've used it now for a few weeks and there still seems to be loads left. I suppose when you are only using a drop or two at a time it will last for a long while although once you have opened these drops it tells you on the packaging that you need to discard them after 90 days.
The drops are really easy to use. The little bottle has a twist off cap and then there is a little nozzle at the top of the bottle. You are meant to add 2 or 3 drops of the solution into your eyes and then blink Two or three times so it gets distributed around your eye. The bottle is not squeeze so you cannot squeeze the drops out but if you hold it upside down you can see that the solution drops out quite easily so it's easy to get the drops in your eye. Sometimes maybe a couple more drops will come out than you want but I don't think this is a really big problem. The little bottle is quite chunky so easy to hold on to and position near your eye. One tip I would give is to not touch your eye with the nip of the bottle as this could cross contaminate your eyes if you have anything wrong with them.
I tend to add these drops to my eyes when I can see a lot of red veins in them or first thing in the morning to really give my eyes a boost. When I have red eyes, after I have applied the drops I wait half an hour or so and you can see that the red veins have started to disappear and the whites of my eyes definitely come back so I really like the results I get from these drops.
One word of warning I would give is that if you are a contact lens wearer like me you are not supposed to use these drops whilst wearing soft contact lenses. This is different to the dry eye drops which you can use with contact lenses so you do need to be careful and remember this when using these drops. All in all though I would definitely say that they have worked for my eyes.
