Optrex Actimist 2-in-1 Eye Spray

Your eyes are precious, so it’s essential to look after them properly. As a contact lens wearer and someone who survives on little sleep (but a lot of eyeliner,) it’s sometimes hard to keep my eyes looking and feeling fresh. They get tired from looking at a computer screen all day, fiddling about on my iPhone and squinting in the sunlight – as well as the inevitable onset of hayfever symptoms now the weather is starting to pick up. I’ve been using eye drops for years to wake me up, help soothe tiredness and brighten dull eyes, but they can be messy to use; not only do you ruin your makeup by dropping the solution over your face rather than in your eye, but you have to find a mirror and stick your fingers in your eye to manoeuvre yourself to the perfect position. Optrex have launched a new range of eye sprays that see those issues well and truly in the past, providing all the goodness of traditional eye drops but in a handy spray. 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 teeny that it’s perfect for popping in your handbag for use out on the go, or even taking to festivals or gigs when smokey atmospheres can aggravate eyes. You need such a small amount to aid 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. Although these aren’t cheap as chips (you can get them for around £13.99) if you really suffer with tired, itchy, uncomforable eyes they could be an utter lifesaver. Especially if you’ve got a hangover…

The eye sprays are available in two variants – for tired eyes and itchy eyes – priced between £13.99 (from Lloyds) and £15.99 (from Boots). For more info, check out their website.
