Optrex Actimist 2 in 1 Eye Spray review

Hello all!

Not the usual type of product to feature on my blog but I wanted to tell you all about a product I've found in the last week.

I suffer from really dry eyes and this combined with contact lenses and hours of sitting at a computer most days leaves my poor peepers feeling sore and dry.  Over the years I've had SO many issues with dry eyes; to the point where I've actually given up with lenses for months on end.

However, I don't feel myself when I have my glasses on and my current specs aren't in the best shape now (covered in scratches.... I need to invest in some new ones soon!) so I try to wear my lenses most days at the moment.

Last week I had the bi monthly panic... "AHHH I have an eye infection.. lets rush to Boots to get checked out!"

Of course...everything was fine and just a little dryness. I think my optician is getting used to this occurrence now and she begged me to get some drops and religiously use them.Now, like most people out there, I really can't stand using drops and I'm sure most of the actual drop doesn't even make it into my eye!

So when I saw this product I was instantly interested!

Optrex Actimist 2 in 1 Dry and Irritated Eye Spray £15.99
Optrex Actimist 2 in 1 is a spray that instantly refreshes and helps repair the natural moisture layer! Its a 10ml bottle that you can use up to 4 times per day. 

What caught my attention most was the fact it can be used whilst you have lenses in and it's also fine to use with waterproof makeup- I haven't experienced any smudging at all with gel liner!

Once sprayed from about 10cm's away  you should leave your eyes closed for 15-20 seconds.I notice the difference straight away, my lenses dont't feel sticky and I feel refreshed and ready to continue with my computer work. 

I love that........
The product is for use on eyes when closed

As well as hydrating my eyes it works on the skin around my eyes too!

The bottle is a handy size to slip into my handbag.


I'm not so happy that.....

The price tag is pretty steep but I've noticed that the product goes a long way


All in all a great product! This is also backed up by the reviews on the Boots website 


There are a few other sprays in the range for different symptoms, for example, itchy eyes! Check them out on the website.

Hope this has helped anyone out there with the same issue!

XOXOXOX
