Mr BBB has recently come back from a work trip to Japan – obviously I had a shopping list! One of the products I really wanted to try was the Rohto Z Pro Eye Drops which are supposed to be some of the best drops available. It will be no surprise that I get tired eyes when I’m on the laptop and phone so much, so I felt I could do a good review on these. I did know in advance that the Japanese like their drops fresh feeling – Rohto Z Pro Eye Drops come in grades of ‘freshness’ all the way from 1 to 8. Mr BBB brought me back 8. What I didn’t know was that 8 would be like rubbing an extra strong mint over your eyeball.
The closest I can get in comparison is with a very strong mouth wash and that kind of after-burn you can get with it so if you think that, in your eye. After some severe swearing and eye watering, and a red eye for a few minutes, I now have one very zingy, white looking eye! I’m not sure I’d do it again to be honest – it’s a bit like being punched purely for the pleasure of remembering how you felt before you were punched, but I do kind of get the attraction of it.
A fresh-feeling eyeball is a curious thing – you didn’t know you wanted it til you had it. The effect doesn’t last very long – I’m told that the Japanese use them as a kind of wake-up, and yes, you will definitely get! I went with what I had – but probably should have started off with a lower grade of minty feeling. I’m glad I tried it but I think it would need to be some immense hangover situation before I did it again!
The weirdest discovery of all though, is that it looks like Rohoto Z Pro Eye Drops are made in Scotland. I’m not even joking.
