Review: ROHTO Lycée Eye Drops (for contact lens)

Hello everyone!
Today I will be reviewing ROHTO's Lycée Eye Drops (for contact lens).

Picture Credit:
ROHTO is really famous for their burning cooling effect eye drops, and I was really curious so I went ahead and bought one! I believe the strongest eye drop from ROHTO is Z!, and the least strongest is the Lycée.
I first heard about ROHTO from one of my favorite blogs, ekiBlog

Nozomi Sasaki is the spokesperson for these eye drops. Isn't the commercial really cute? ♥

Cheapest at $11 on eBay

♥ Cute packaging
♥ Smells like roses
♥ Soothes irritation
♥ Re-moistens eyes
♥ Includes Vitamin B12, Vitamin B6, and Potassium L (which are all healthy for your eyes!)
♥ Refreshes eyes (may be a con because some users think it burns, but the "burn" is followed by a cool minty feeling)

★ Small (may be a pro because it's easy to carry)
★ A tiny bit pricey

Active Ingredients:
Sodium Chondroitin Sulfate 0.5%
Potassium Chloride 0.08%
Sodium Chloride 0.44%
Sodium Bicarbonate 0.05%
Hydroxyethylcellulose 0.02%

The packaging is a 3.5 x 3.5 x 1 cm square which contains 8 mL of fluid.

Close-up of the nozzle (sorry it's bad quality, my camera wouldn't focus...)
I personally love this packaging! It's a really pretty pink color with loads of sparkles and glitter.
Even the box is pretty. It has some sort of reflective aluminum thing that makes it shiny when it's under certain light LOL ; u ; 

The back of the box
I can't read Japanese (other than Hiragana, but knowing just Hiragana isn't helpful ;;) so I apologize that I cannot translate any of this...

In the box, there you have your eye drops in a small plastic bag so that it can't be tampered with. You also have a sheet of information in Japanese.

Front side of paper
Back side of paper
As you can see in the front side of the paper, there is some instruction on how to open and close your eye drops. You twist the cap counter-clockwise to open it, and simply push the cap down to close it. You can also see that the application for these eye drops are quite unique as any angle of application will always result in the eye drop traveling downwards. (Instead of it squirting around in random directions like other brands.)

The back side of the paper includes contact information for ROHTO as well as a list of ingredients (I'm guessing, by the percentages and such.) I don't know what the rest of the information on the front and back side are > n <;;

You use these eye drops like any other eye drops. Shake the bottle well and squeeze 1-2 drops onto your eye, while not using them more than 5-6 times per day.

After squeezing in one drop of the Lycée eye drops, my eyes were white and awake in only two minutes!! You might not see a dramatic difference from the pictures, but there was a really huge difference in real life.

Overall, I give ROHTO's Lycée Eye Drops a: ★★★★☆ 4/5 stars!

To be honest, I was a tiny bit disappointed when I first received my package. For some reason, I always imagined the bottle to be a bit bigger, instead of it being really tiny. I was also disappointed that it smelled like roses, instead of a lychee fruit which I mistakenly imagined it to be LOL orz;; (I mean, it's called "Lycée"  and the packaging it pink!!) But after my first use, I instantly fell in love with it! These eye drops are really amazing because they reduce the redness of my eyes a lot. I also really like the cooling sensation it brings which re-moistens while relaxes my tired eyes.

Before purchasing the Lycée eye drops, I seldom used other eye drops. I thought that my tired, dry eyes were considered normal with the use of contact lenses. However, I don't think I'll ever go back to not using eye drops now that I've used the Lycée ones > u <. I recommend them to all contact lens wearers!! (Though  it might interest mostly girls because of the packaging L-LOL...)

For non-contact lens users, there is also a version of the Lycée eye drops that are meant for non-contact lens users for the same price. I haven't seen them before, but I believe it is a dark pink color in comparison to the light pink color meant for contact lens users. But if I were someone who doesn't wear contact lenses, and is looking for eye drops, then I'd buy ROHTO's Z!, which is a lot more effective than ROHTO's Lycée.

I know I said in my post two posts ago, that my next post would be the OST C20 Serum (am I confusing you yet? haha~), but I haven't received it yet. Look forward to it soon!

Don't forget to enter my giveaway!! It's not too late~

That's it for now. Thank you for reading, and have a wonderful day ♥ xoxo
