Rohto Lycée Contact (eye drops & free case)

I´ve been prescribed new contact linses back in May so I ordered the Lycée Contact eye drops to keep my eyes healthy and comfortable when wearing them.
This is the first time I got contact lenses in about 10 years as previously I could only wear hard ones and found them too uncomfy to even I was just wearing my specs. Anyway, finally I can wear lenses again (1-month disposable ones) =D

I found an offer for the Lycée Contact & a free case so I ordered them from Alphabeautyuk. Incl. the case the drops just cost 0.20$ more so I got the ones with the storage case.

I honestly thought the case would be a container to hold the lenses but it´s actually a storage case for the eye drops. It comes with a mirror but I neither use a mirror to insert the lenses or drops nor to remove them but a mirror can always be handy anyway.

The Lycée Contact eye drops come in a very cute little bottle in light pink. I can surely get eye drops for contact lenses in Austria but why not get the cute ones from Japan hehe? And they´re not pricey and the 8ml will last a while (though please remember to discard your eye drops regularly, about every 2-3 months max).

I tried the regular Lycée eye drops before and honestly they stung too much since they are "cooling". I don´t mind a little cooling effect but the regular ones just felt painful and not refreshing.
The Lycée Contact seem to be milder (they are only cooling level 1 out of 5, I believe the regular one is 3) as I feel a light cooling sensation but not the heavy burning and stinging like in the regular ones. The Contact drops seem to make my eyes feel refreshed and awake when I use them so they´re really perfect for a contact lens wearer.

Overall I recommend the Lycée Contact eye drops even if you don´t wear contacts over the regular kind. If you like the cooling sensation you might want to try the Rohto Z! drops as they are obviously the most cooling (aka burning, cooling level 6 respectively 7) drops from Rohto as far as I know (available in various kinds incl. for contact lens wearers, regular, multi-purpose etc.) =P

Use 4-6 times per day (at most), 1-2 drops per application. Don´t touch the nozzle to prevent contamination and always close cap tightly after use.
These eye drops are free of colorant, the pink tint comes from the Vitamin B12 contained in the liquid.

Active ingredients:
Sodium Chondroitin Sulfate 0.5%
Potassium Chloride 0.08%
Sodium Chloride 0.44%
Sodium Bicarbonate 0.05%
Hydroxyethylcellulose 0.02%

Like all my reviews these are my personal opinions. Please use at your own risk!

Augh! I am so mad at myself for not getting the drops with the case-I also thought that it was a contact lense case. Well, I guess I can always make another order =D

Lora said...

Ooh! I've always wanted to try these eye drops! And now that you've showed us where to get one that comes with a cute case, I'm off to get it!

Lora said...

Aw, it's too bad they're sold out right now.

I love love love this! grabbed this based on your review too (i swear, i use your blog as my basis of purchase while i'm in Japan haha), and i like it much better than the other Rohto eye drops for contacts. the other one is in the ovaly shaped something with C on it and had no cooling sensation. it didn't make my eyes feel less tired or anything at all, and actually felt like made my eyes sorta sticky?

but this one! omg i love it! took me a while to hunt down these eyedrops (combini seems to carry no eyedrops and severely limited cosmetics, and there are many different "drugstore" chains?), but the Lycee contact ones are amazing. it was shocking how it tingled so much when i first tried it, if this is ranked 1 on cooling, i can't imagine how much the rank 5 hurts x____x but this is really great, the other morning i had this piece of fuzz attached to my lashes that went in my eye and would NOT budge. got to the point where i can't even open my eyes at all. dropped some of this in, and voila, all fixed! and i use it to give my eyes a bit of freshening/awakening. they're a bit cheaper retailing in Japan so i'm gonna buy a few bottles of backup before i head back to US!

I've ordered the Rohto Lycee for regular using. Now I'm afraid of the burning cooling effect! D':

But I love the adorable case!!!
