[unpaid/purchase/affiliate] I’m taking Friday off beauty and instead focusing on things that would fall more into the health category. A reader recommend (thank you Pinky!) is Blephasol Sensitive Eye Lid Cleanser and it couldn’t have come at a better time for me. I’ve been testing several mascaras over the past couple of weeks and made the big mistake of making an Instagram reel, getting it wrong, taking off the mascara, putting it back on, getting it wrong again and removing once more. The end result was extremely sore eyes (I usually do everything in one take – I’m not committed enough to aim for perfection!). As it is, I get sore eyes from my screen which I mitigate with drops but this particular sore eye was next level.
Without getting too gory, as we know, sore eyes tend to produce more secretions and I was glad that I bought the little wipes as well for mornings when they definitely needed some attention. The thing about the wipes is that you really can winkle into the corners without any fear of upsetting your eyes further – if anything, the wipes soothe and refresh as well as de-sleep so you feel less conscious of the red balls staring back at you. The wipes don’t remove mascara (use the liquid for this), or not much, but if you’ve been wearing kohl on the inner rims they get every last drop away. I stopped wearing mascara, used the Blephasol Sensitive Eye Lid Cleanser which is like a micellar and used the wipes for mornings. I think they’re both very useful products to have on hand – I’ve learned my lesson that I can’t abuse my peepers in the way I did for that silly reel but I think really this stuff might be a godsend for anyone whose eyes need extra care in cleansing. You can find the liquid HERE. For no known reason, the wipes aren’t on-line.

The wipes likely aren’t online as Thea only sell to opticians & pharmacies – they’re pretty strict on this! Just go careful using them often if you’ve not been diagnosed with blepharitis as it can be harsh on lids being used everyday & not specifically treating the condition (work in optics & spend a lot of my time going over proper use/treatment with px’s)
Thank you! I bought mine in Superdrug. They really helped to calm my eyes down so I’ll keep them for sore eye days – best in the fridge? Or doesn’t it matter?
Fridge will make them nice & cooling but isn’t necessary as they’re packaged in sterile sachets. If you ever get a stye or conjunctivitis, cut a wipe in half so you’re not transferring anything from one eye to the other! The Thea eye drops (Thealoz Duo) is excellent for tired or dry eyes.
Brilliant, thank you for the info x
I got the wipes on Amazon recently for my dry eye issues and have shared them with my mum who has macular degeneration
FYI Boots does a slightly cheaper version than this one – just the lid wash, don’t think they do the wipes. Also, Dr Hilary Jones does both wipes and cleanser which are both a bit cheaper, for anyone on a budget. I’ve used the ones you showed too. I tend to buy whichever is on offer. Emma x
oh thanks for the info.
