I know I am not alone with the dreaded summer curse that is better known as Hayfever!
Streaming, itchy, red painful eyes and lots of sneezing tend to be what my days consist of from late May
all the way through until around late August which is not fun at all.
Luckily this is not my first rodeo and I do have a few products that I would like to share
with all fellow pollen allergy suffers to hopefully make it a little more bearable for you!
Eye Slices - Happy Eyes
I'm sure some will say wait a moment aren't these just fancy manufactured slices of cucumber or cold tea bags, well yes they tap into the same idea - a soothing slice for the eye but that really is where the comparisons end.
Cucumber actually stings my eyes so it was always out of the question and cold tea bags are about as appealing to me as a kick up the bum so the Eye Slices have been a long time coming as far as i'm concerned. Basically Eye Slices are re-usable non- toxic gel/jelly like slices that you pop on your eyes to solve a whole array of problems - the version best suited for myself is the Happy Eyes version as they
been specially designed for allergy suffers like myself!
They soothe and calm irritated eyes, reduce puffiness, cool and stop further irritations, after a really bad hayfever bout you will thank your lucky stars for these little babies!
For an extra soothing treat keep your Eye Slices in the fridge.

Clinique All About the Eyes Serum
In my opinion any product you repurchase as soon as you have finished it is worth writing about more than once and this is very much the case with Clinique All About the Eyes Serum.
There is countless roll on serum style products out there but most sting my eyes or are simply too intense
for my delicate eye area but not Clinique All About the Eyes Serum.
The metal roller ball soothes and massages the entire eye area all the while cooling and reducing any puffiness, what makes this a total winner in my book is that it is non greasy, absorbs instantly
and works over or under make-up wonderfully resulting in it being a fabulous product for on the go ladies!

L'Oreal Revitalift Laser Renew Eye Cream
This is a fairly new addition to my beauty routine and one I keep for popping on just before I go to bed.
Everyone should use a good eye cream regardless of their age and yes this particular one is targeted
for those who want anti-ageing properties but that is not my reason for using it.
I like L'Oreal Revitalift Laser Renew Eye Cream because it has a metal nozzle to dispense the cream on to the eyes which also aides in the application as the metal tip cools and messages the eye area.
The actual cream itself is not too shabby either it's just the right consistency not too thin that it is more a serum and not too thick/heavy that is too rich for the delicate skin of such area.
I find L'Oreal Revitalift Laser Renew Eye Cream to moisturise and hydrate well and it doesn't leave my skin tight or uncomfortable either as for the anti-ageing element I sadly can not comment.

Obviously medication is another thing I would recommend but as I am not a doctor i'm clearly not qualified to recommend anything but what I will say is that an air humidifier has been the one thing that has kept me sane this summer. My hayfever is at it's worst come nightfall so I tend to switch on my humififer an hour before I go to bed and I find I get a better sleep with less sneezing bouts!
