--What does the promo say?--
"Biotrue Rewetting Drops 10ml bottle are perfect for keeping eyes that are prone to dryness moist and protected throughout the day. Brought to you by Bausch & Lomb, who also produce Biotrue OneDay and Biotrue multipurpose solution, Biotrue Rewetting solution will help maintain moisture on your eyes. Throughout the day exposure to air-conditioning, digital screens and warm environments can increase evaporation from your contact lens. This leaves the eyes uncomfortable and irritated. Biotrue wetting eye drops help re-moisturise your contact lenses and also soothe irritated eyes. Biotrue Rewetting Drops are preservative free. This makes them the ideal eye drops for sensitive eyes. Plus, you can use these drops whilst your hard or soft contact lenses are in your eyes – without risking your vision or the quality of your contact lens. This helpful 10ml bottle can be used as often as needed throughout the day. Biotrue Rewetting drops contain 0.2% hydraulic acid - a natural tear lubricant. This keeps your eye hydrated in a way similar to tears. The product feels natural and gentle – even for those with the most sensitive eyes."
It takes a while to work out that the blue handle-like appendage on the side of the bottle is actually used to dispense the drops into your eyes; additionally, this tends to jam occasionally. However, the appearance, size and non-leak properties of the bottle all get the general thumbs up.
Tilt your head back and push down the dispensing handle to release 1-2 drops per eye. Easy as.
The liquid is clear and no visible residue is left around the eye area.
Odourless - so should bother nobody who is picky about smells of products.
--Texture and consistency--
While quite liquidy, the solution stays in the eye, unlike some drops, which can run down into your throat later.
--Effects on the eyes--
Successful hydration of the eyes is achieved, and the solution can be comfortably used during the day whenever your eyes feel dry.
--Value for money--
This seems a lot of money on the face of it, but ultimately this is a high-quality product that would last a long time and is great for travel and home use to combat dry eyes.
