Surviving Summer with Optrex and a Giveaway!

It’s hard to enjoy Summer when every time you step out of the house you’re constantly crying, sneezing, finding it difficult to breathe, or all three. Alfie and I have so much in common, including hayfever and I can’t say I like that. It’s a bit weird to be writing about how much I’ve enjoyed washing my eyes out, but I seriously have. I’ve been away quite a lot recently, and I’ve took my eyedrops along every single time, they’ve even taken up a semi-permanent residence at Alfie’s house whilst we house sit.I don’t usually get excited about something like this, but I seriously cannot stop reaching for them, they’re honestly a daily essential and now I cannot imagine my day without using them. I’ve had a bundle from Optrex to try out and I’m giving the same products away to one lucky reader too! You’ll have to be in the UK and follow a couple rules to enter, so good luck!

Surviving Summer with Optrex and a Giveaway!

The Optrex Rehydrating Eye Drops have by far been my favourites. They instantly make my eyes feel soothed, awake and hydrated. As I use the computer so much, or my phone, or even the laptop like right now, my eyes do feel really tired and dry which means these drops help lubricate my eyes by replenishing my tears in just 1-2 drops! My second favourites definitely have to be the Optrex Eyedew Dazzling, as they really make your eyes pop. I remember using these a few years ago and I just loved how sparkly they made me look, and they really make eye makeup look so much better. It’s all because of a intelligent blue ingredient which helps to make your eyes look whiter and sparkle the night away.

The Optrex Multi Action Eye Wash is a huge bottle with a super clever cap, which is what you use to help wash your eye out. It soothes, cleanses and helps irritated eyes. It can helps wash out anything that is irritating your eyes, such as dust, and leave you feeling refreshed. All of these products are also perfect for contact lense wearers! To use it simply fill the cup nearly to the top, tip your head back and place the eye cup on top of your eye and rock your head. It’s super simple and quite fun to do! Lastly, the ActiMist™ 2in1 Dry + Irritated Eye Spray which is basically irritated eyes’ best friend. Sometimes when eyes are really irritated, it’s easier to treat them whilst they’re shut and this is exactly what the mist does. In just a few simple sprays it can provide relief for up to 4 hours, perfect if you’re heading out or just want to soothe your eyes first thing.
