Favorite Things: September

This month’s favorite things list is here!  I’m really excited to share with you some of my favorite things to use on and around my eyes this month.   I’ll put links to all of my favorites down below.

First up is my favorite artificial tear – Soothe XP by Bausch and Lomb.  Anybody who knows me probably knows that I have some dry eye and allergy issues.  My eyes are very sensitive and can get easily irritated.  Since I wear my contacts a good majority of the time I like to keep drops with me that I can use with and without my contacts and these are it – they moisturize and also calm my eyes down like no other.  Seriously. they are excellent.  If you haven’t tried these yet you can find them in any eye care section over the counter.  Are you having issues with dryness or irritation in your eyes and are wondering what treatment may be right for you?  Contact me here to make an appointment.

My next favorite is also a favorite due to my sensitive eyes and allergies – my We Love Eyes foaming eyelid and eyelash cleanser.  I use this nightly to remove my eye makeup and cleanse my eyelids (and when I have heavy or waterproof makeup I do a two step cleanse starting with my We Love Eyes Makeup Remover Oil).  I love this product because it’s all natural and works so well.  We even carry this product in our store so stop in to check it out and save on shipping!  And P.S., an awesome Optometrist – Dr. Tanya Gill of Oakland Vision Center, developed it.  How cool is that!?

Next up on my list is my Bye Bye Under Eye Cream by IT Cosmetics.  IT Cosmetics has been a favorite of mine for awhile now as I love to use products that are more natural.   I consider their products to be “good for you makeup” since they don’t contain harmful ingredients and are cruelty free.  I originally received this as a part of another skin care kit and I didn’t use it right away and I am regretting that I didn’t!  It really does reduce dark circles and puffiness like no other eye cream I have tried.  It’s also great for sensitive skin or those with allergies.

Last but not least is my random (and kind of eye related pick?) – the Deep Sleep Pillow Spray from thisworks.  Good sleep is essential for your eyes as well as the rest of your body and this spray has become an essential part of my nightly routine.  A few spritzes of this all natural spray on my pillow before laying down makes me relaxed and helps me drift off to sleep in no time flat.  The smell is light, not overwhelming, and it doesn’t seems to bother my allergies at all.

That wraps up my favorite things for the month of September.  If you have any questions or comments feel free to send me a message at sheehyopticians@aol.com.
