ALOHA PEEPS. It’s Alex this week! There are 3 things that I currently love that are causing me some issues at the moment:
- I love wearing contacts at my job. (aka I hate wearing glasses to see)
- I love reading books at my job.
- I love using the computer at my job.
I work on weekends, 9 hours on Saturday and 9 hours on Sunday. Don’t get me wrong, I love my job (I didn’t list it above because the job itself is not causing me any issues) but if you notice those 3 listed above all have one thing in common: stress on my eyes.
I give my eyes a break once in a while at work. I wear my glasses sometimes and apply eye drops when needed…but when I get home, I give them a little treat! A little ‘thank you!’ for helping me get through my day! (＾∇＾)
I treat my eyes to a Kao Megurhythm Steam Hot Eye Mask!
“Kao Megurhythm Steam Hot Eye Mask is a self heat steam eye mask which relieves tired eyes for use before sleep or in relaxation. It heats up to about 104F (40℃) instantly to relax your eye zone and lasts for 5 – 10 minutes. This Kao Megurhythm Steam Hot Eye Mask is convenient to use and fragrance free.”
- Place of Origin: Japan
- Ingredients: polypropylene, polyethylene
What’s the magic in this? IT HEATS UP BY ITSELF! LIKE MAGIC! ＼(°◇°)／ Okay, not really like magic (more like chemistry) but once you open the packet, it starts warming up really fast and stays warm for at least 30 minutes (longest I had them on). When I threw them out they were still very warm.
Can you wear it with makeup on your eyes? YES. Okay, I didn’t bring them to work or anything, but unless you press these babies against your makeup, then of course you will get makeup on them. However, if you just wear them as is, your makeup is in tact! \（￣ー￣）
My eyes felt extremely relaxed after using this. It was as if someone massaged around the area…it’s the same feeling of relief. But let’s be honest here — is it worth buying?
Both yes and no. It’s not messy, convenient, long lasting (30+ minutes of heat) and travel friendly. However, there is a cheaper alternative and that’s simply getting a warm wash cloth. :B So what I’m saying is, if you don’t plan to wear them in a place aside from the comfort of your own home, then get the cheaper alternative. But if you plan on using them on lunch breaks at school or work, definitely try this. I know I’ll be bringing one with me to school!
what do you do to relax your eyes?
To conclude this post – I’m trying to make it a habit to post 3 instagram pics that sum up my week! \（￣ー￣）
*to my fellow instagram users: I use instagram to quickly edit pictures I take with my phone but I don’t upload my pictures and I don’t actually use my account. HOWEVER~ Joyce & I are definitely planning to open an instagram account for carouselstreet! If & whenwe do, we’ll definitely post our username here and follow all of you guys!
Have a lovely week! （●´∀｀）ノ♡
