Review / Liz Earle EyeBright Soothing Eye Lotion

This Spring/Summer my hayfever has been, particularly, horrendous.
I take prescription medication for my allergies, so my pills are really quite strong but they don't seem to be cutting it, recently. My eyes, especially, have been constantly red and dry - if you suffer from allergies, I'm sure you know very well what I'm talking about! :(
What has really come to the rescue is the Liz Earle EyeBright Soothing Eye Lotion* - first time, I've been using it and I'm so impressed - you can, definitely, appreciate a product at its best, in the moment of crisis...



I've, totally, ditched the Bioderma  - which made my eyes even drier, at the end of the day (weirdo... never happened before... I put it down to my current sensitivity issues) and removing my eye make up with the Liz Earle lotion.
 I just pour a little bit on a cotton wool pad and swipe it over my eyes, gently; this will remove most of the make up but not get rid of it completely... but I'm not bothered about it as I always finish off, washing my face with the Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish and this product also never ever sting my eyes.

Love the twist up cap - it's great for travelling, too.


Another application for this gentle, herbal lotion is to soothe and refresh the eyes:
I soak 2 cotton wool pads, place them over my eyes and then top it with my eye gel mask (I've had it for over 10 years and I keep it in the fridge so It's always ready to use).
I've been enjoying this mini therapy session about 3 times a week... and for about 10 minutes I can totally relax, laying on my bed with my eye shut!


By the way, have you check the make up colour wheel yet?
You'll find all the information you need about the new range and it, also, have spaces next to the shades so you can swatch your current products and find the closest match - What a great idea indeed!
I have already got the cream blusher in Camelia, powder blusher in Rose on my wishlist!!! :)
 


Finally, I just wanted to mention that Evelyn - over at We Were Raised By Wolves - also has a great post about fighting hayfever... you should check it out! :)

  1. I've been enjoying this lotion a lot in the past days. Feels very soothing and refreshing; shame for the scent tho, I really don't like the way Liz products smell :/
