Liz Earle Eyebright Soothing Eye Lotion - Review

Wednesday, July 27, 2011
Hi Everyone,

Sorry for not blogging since last so many days. Missed all of you so much..My health was in a bad shape but I am better now and back to blogging business. :-P

Today, I will be reviewing Liz Earle Eyebright Soothing Eye Lotion. I have used this eye lotion for almost two weeks now and its the right time for a review.

What Liz Earle claims about Liz Earle Eyebright Soothing Eye Lotion
  • Wake up and revitalise eyes with cotton wool pads soaked in this gentle, soothing herbal lotion before using Cleanse & Polish.
  • Non-oily, it is ideal for sensitive eyes and contact lens wearers.
  • Apply to a cotton wool pad to clean and wake up your eyes first thing.
  • Naturally active ingredients include the grassland herb – eyebright, witch hazel, organic aloe vera and cornflower to help tone, cool and refresh tired, puffy or sore eyes. 
  • Suitable for all skin types
How to Use
  • Apply Eyebright to cotton wool pad to clean and wake up your eyes first thing.
  • For a revitalising, soothing compress, soak 2 cotton wool pads in Eyebright and place over eyes and relax for 5 – 10 minutes.
  • Eyebright is light, non-oily and suitable for contact lens wearers.

    Key Ingredients 
    • Eyebright Extract (Euphrasia officinalis) - Eyebright is said to be named after Euphrosyne the Greek goddess of good cheer, joy, mirth and merriment because of the gladness it brought to sufferers of eye problems. This tiny plant is still used by herbalists today to help reduce puffy eyes. 
    • Witch Hazel Water (Hamamelis virginiana) - Witch hazel is a deciduous shrub or small tree. Its other common names, winterbloom and snapping hazel illustrate its unusually late flowering period and its explosive bursting seeds that can be ejected as far as 20 feet away from the plant. Naturally rich in tannins the distillate produced from witch hazel has a mildly astringent effect, helping to tone the skin.
    • D-panthenol - Otherwise known as pro-vitamin B5, this B vitamin is necessary for the normal functioning of the skin and has a moisturising effect. It also helps stimulate cellular renewal.
    • Cornflower Extract (Centaurea cyanus) - Considered weeds by corn farmers, cornflowers were found in Tutankamun’s tomb and were almost as blue as they would have been in 1550BC. An extract from these dainty blue flowers has been used for minor inflammations of the eye.
    • Aloe Vera (Aloe barbadensis) - The gel found in this cactus-like plant’s fat juicy fronds contain active ingredients to help cool, soothe and soften the skin. Aloe vera has been used for more than 6000 years to treat a variety of skin ailments, including sunburn, blisters and burns.
    • Glycerin - The glycerin we use is always vegetable derived. It is a humectant (attracts water), drawing atmospheric water onto the skin to aid hydration.
    Full Ingredients List 
    Aqua (water), Hamamelis virginiana (witch hazel) water, PEG-60 almond glycerides, Glycerin, Aloe barbadensis (aloe vera) leaf juice, Decyl glucoside, Panthenol, Centaurea cyanus (cornflower) extract, Euphrasia officinalis (eyebright) extract, Potassium sorbate, Phenoxyethanol, Benzoic acid, Dehydroacetic acid, Polyaminopropyl biguanide, Ethylhexylglycerin, Sodium methylparaben, Sodium propylparaben.

    My Experience with Liz Earle Eyebright Soothing Eye Lotion 
    • I started using contact lenses a few days back and since my eyes are quite sensitive, it will take some time for my eyes to adjust with the lenses.So every time I used to wear my lenses for even 2 hours, my eyes would feel tired and all puffy. Using Eyebright Soothing Eye Lotion made my eyes feel good as new and freshly awake. 
    • Every time I use this lotion, I feel like I just bathed my eyes with chilled water.:-P 
    • Instantly soothes and calms any irritations in eyes and brightens up tired eyes. 
    • Fragrance Free
    • Very light in consistency and transparent in colour. 
    • Removes light eye makeup also but does not remove the stubborn and waterproof eye makeup.
    • Does not leave any residue after use. 
    • Helps to reduce dark circles.
    • Makes eyes bright and beautiful.
    Overall, its another great product by Liz Earle and its a must have for everyone irrespective of whether your eyes are sensitive or not.
