I was contacted a few weeks ago from someone in PR to try out a product. the product is the Bausch & Lomb "Bio True" multi-purpose solution. I have been testing this out for about a little over a week and really have enjoyed using it.
it came with a little tote bag, which i love to use to bring with me to the gym or to my work with little things like my make-up bag, extra contact case, the solution and my eyeglass case (with my eyeglasses of course) just in case i wanted to remove my contacts.
I suffer from severe dry eyes as it is, and i normally use opti-free. so i was a bit hesitant to try something different. I had heard such great things about this particular solution from Pam (xxPinkxx) and so i gave it a go.
Bausch & Lomb was having a giveaway, but had ended on March 27th for a free tote bag - the giveaway was to celebrate their newest innovation (the bio true multipurpose solution)
So the best thing about this contact solution is that it is made and has a lubricant that is naturally found in your eyes. which is a plus for me because i have super dry eyes! and usually sometimes other contact lens solutions dry my eyes out (AOSept being one of them).
the formula matches the pH of healthy tears and keeps certain beneficial tear proteins active. I am very impressed with the qualities of BioTrue because after using this for 1.5 weeks i noticed my eyes are not as dry as usual and i didn't have to use rewetting drops as much as when i was using other contact solutions.
I really really really loved the packaging! i think because it was different than your typical white bottle of solution, it was clear and it gave it a little more pizazz to it lol. i had the sample size and i know they do sell the smaller ones, which i love because i can tote it around in my purse and for on the go!
I enjoyed using this product quite a bit. i noticed the quality of the solution itself was more lubricating and more thicker. not sticky though. after the first few uses i noticed my eyes weren't as dry (but they normally are ALWAYS dry) and when i wore my contacts i didn't have to use rewetting drops as often. it didn't sting my eyes at all which was awesome! because theres nothing worse than sticking a contact in your eye and it stinging the bahjeezers out of it!
it was really easy to use, real easy to bring along with me. only gripe about it was the cap. sometimes it was hard to take off with one hand (i usually do that with my others) but i did like that it was not the twist off type. but just harder than usual to take off. otherwise - it's self explanatory on how to use it - it does come with instructions in the box incase you are new to using contact solution or wearing contacts.
Overall - i absolutely loved this product! i did notice a different that it really worked well with my eyes making me want to use contacts more! kept my eyes lubricated more than regular contact solutions, it was easy to use, didn't bother my eyes at all and it was just a pleasure having!
I only got the smaller sample sized bottle, but when this runs out i will definitely be switching from my current contact solution to BioTrue!
