Today I wanted to share my little obession with eyedrops... lol
I have reviewed Japanese eyedrops in the past, this time I wanted to review SANTEN Sante FX Neo eyedrops! As a glasses and contact wearer, for me eyedrops are a MUST HAVE item. They help me relieve fatigue/strained eyes, prevents red eyes and alleviates dry eyes.
Since 1991 Sante FX series are an eye drop with a powerful refreshing effect that was revolutionary among over-the-counter products at the time. Became one of the staples of eyedrops in Japan but its not for the faint of heart since the cooling intensity is very strong but with all that power it immediately alleviates the eyes.
I had to get this Limited Evangelion edition cause I LOVE AYANAMI Rei lol
Since its foundation in 1890, Santen Pharmaceutical Co., Ltd. has contributed to the protection and improvement of people's eyesight and health. Santen's integrated operations extend from research and development to production and sales of prescription and over-the-counter pharmaceuticals.
What is this eyedrop good for?
Eye strain, conjunctival congestion, itchy eyes, prevention of eye diseases (after swimming and when dust or sweat enters the eyes), inflammation of the eye due to ultraviolet light or other optical radiation(snow blindness etc.), blurred vision (severe eye discharge), sore eyelids, irritation caused by contact lenses
|Contain effective active ingredients that help to relieve eye fatigue|
|Maximum concentrations* of amino acids (taurine, Potassium L-aspartate) are contained.|
It also contains neostigmine methylsulfate which improves focus adjustment. Sante FX is highly effective for eye fatigue and red-eye relief offering a refreshing and long lasting cooling sensation.
What I think?
Since Sante FX Neo is level 5 their highest level of cooling sensation it is indeed shockingly minty, but the more you use it the more you get used to the sensation and most likely you will get addicted to the minty sensation lol If your eyes were tired or irritated before this eye drop, after 2-3 drop per eyes wait few seconds before you open your, eyes make sure to roll your eyes around to get the eyedrops evenly distributed then open your eyes. Your eyes will feel like it took a power nap and are refreshingly rejuvenated :)
Also there is no scent or taste so that is a PLUS in my book lol
If you ever tried Rohto eyedrops especially Z! you will find that they are similar in their performance and their cooling sensation. Overall I love both Santen and Rohto eyedrop evenly.
I give it 5 out of 5
especially a must have for glasses and contact wearer (you with bad vision) lol
Made very well, feels solid, cap closes tightly
Alleviates red eyes and dry eyes ♥♥♥♥♥
got rid of my red eye after few minutes
Cooling sensation ♥♥♥♥♥
at first intense but after nice minty feeling lasts for a while
My eyedrops all stars!
Rohto Lycee is the weakest one in terms of cooling sensation, Z! and FX Neo is about head to head with their effective and cooling sensation ^_^
well hope this helps!
