Review: Bausch and Lomb Biotrue Rewetting Drops

Today I'm doing a review for a product called Biotrue Rewetting Drops!

I was asked to review this product in exchange for the item so this post is sponsored, but all of my opinions and material are 100% mine and honest.

Brand: Bausch and Lomb
Name: Biotrue Rewetting Drops
Price: £9.99 for 10ml
Where to buy: Boots

These rewetting drops are used to rehydrate your eyes throughout the day. Your eyes can get dry and tired from wearing contact lenses, gadget usage (staring at a computer/phone all day), environmental conditions, air conditioning, heating, cold or windy weather or even things like travelling on planes. I chose to review this item because I have just started wearing circle lenses again and it's always good to have eye drops at hand because my eyes can get very tired and dry. I think I'm going to take this with me on the plane to Japan in December since it can be used up to 6 months after opening.

These eye drops contain hyaluronic acid, one of my favourite ingredients in skincare; it can hold up to 1000 times its weight in water so it keeps your eyes hydrated longer than eye drops without hyaluronic acid.

The outer packaging box is green and white with a real-sized picture of the product on it. It has a description of the product and ingredients on the sides.

Quite a nice little feature, to be able to write the date you opened the drops so that you know when to throw them away!

application

 These Rewetting Drops have quite a unique feature - the blue plastic around the bottle acts as a sort of applicator - you put your thumb on the plastic part at the top and the rest of your fingers on the bottom of the bottle. When using these eyedrops, you push your thumb down and the applicator dispenses exactly one drop of the product!

The drops in my hand

I find the applicator a little stiff to use, so it makes me hesitate and blink when I think the eye drop is going to be dispensed. It makes it a little hard to use, since I'd prefer it to be over and done with so I can't try to avoid it! Once the eye drop is in, it does feel very soothing and hydrating though. There is no burning or stinging sensation. The effect lasts an hour or so and can be reapplied if needed.

I put my circle lenses in and took some high quality selfies, then decided to include the product haha!

mythoughts

These eye drops are great for soothing tired and dry eyes, and the applicator is unique but it's a bit stiff to use, which makes me move my head and miss the eye drop. I do like the inclusion of hyaluronic acid in the product, and would probably pick it over another eye drop product. I give this product 4 stars out of 5.
