The combination of heavy screen time on your computer, the elements and wearing glasses or contacts can really take it’s toll on your eyes. As you can imagine, I was really pleased when I was sent the Optrex Eye Revive Moisture Mist to review.
Personally for me, by the time early evening rolls by all I’m thinking of is removing my heavy Ray Ban glasses and relaxing with a cold drink and a sheet mask over my face.
When I first saw this was Optrex, it reminded me of when I used to get something in my eye as a kid, and my Mum would make me flush it out with what seemed like a huge blue lid and wash. Not sure if I had a habit of getting stuff stuck in my eyes but it’s quite a strong memory.
Thankfully this is just a light spray and not an eyeball washing system. ????
The Optrex Eye Revive comes in quite a funky box with an instruction sheet that the worrier in me, made me read. After a couple of pumps the eye revive was ready, it has a bit of a weird smell but that evaporates in seconds. The idea is that you spray the moisture mist onto closed eyes and let the hydrating liposomes do their work. The pro-vitamin B5 and ingredient is clinically proven to soothe the skin around the eyes too!
Please excuse the creepy eye pic!
It’s not the easiest to take a before and after photo of your eyeballs. ????
After the first go, my eyes felt refreshed and less itchy – here is my before and after photo. I didn’t realise at first but when I was uploading the photos, I noticed less blood shot lines in my after photo.
Optrex Eye Revive Moisture Mist can go on over a full face of makeup and not smudge?! It’s true, I even put extra eye makeup on (3 layers of black mascara, brown eyeliner top and bottom and under eye concealer) before I tried it out. I was pleasantly surprised with this product. At most I was expecting a refreshing burst, but I also have noticeable results after a long day in the heat and computer usage.
Because this is a spray product, it means that it has a longer shelf life than eye drops, so you have 6 months to use it from opening. It’s also safe to use with contact lenses!
