Freshlook Illuminate Contact Lenses | Your Answer To Bigger, Bolder and More Vibrant Eyes

11/12/2013Shen



I've stayed far away from contact lenses as much as I could.

I tried those that came from bazaars. You know, those that were sold online to make your eyes bigger, made popular by make Youtube gurus and bloggers. The ones that either came from China or God knows where. How can I not? They made your eyes look doll-like.

Unfortunately, the experience was so nasty. My eyes itched the whole time, it was so watery that my fellow beauty bloggers noticed my discomfort and advised me to remove it immediately for fear that it might do damage to my eyes. In the end, I threw them away and wasted about a thousand pesos of my money.

And I'm not the only one with horror stories about these so-called contact lenses. My friend, Marj Sia of the Travelling High Heels, had her fake contact lenses horror story as well. That's why she sent me a sample of Freshlook Illuminate Contact Lenses, to help me overcome my fear and see the difference of a legit pair compared to cheap imitations.

Like with makeup, I don't think I can ever risk my face using fake cosmetics. And that goes for these rounded wonders, too. I will never put my trust again in cheaper imitations, made by brands I can't even pronounce or hardly know if they are safe and trust-worthy.


I've tried Freshlook contact lenses way back in college and have experienced the comfort of it, so Marj didn't have to make so much of effort in convincing me to try these. I can't wait to make use of it on my next event!

Here a few facts to settle your weary minds about Freshlook Illuminate Contact Lenses

  • FreshLook® Illuminate is a new daily disposable circle lens from ALCON® specially designed to make Asian eyes look naturally bigger, bolder and more vibrant. 

  • Circle lenses, or also known as limbal ring lenses, are contact lenses that make the iris appear bigger. The iris is the coloured part of the eye.
  • FreshLook® Illuminate is designed based on consumer insight that Asian women who want to enhance their eyes desire to do so discreetly. These women want people to notice that their eyes are different, but do not want them to know that they have enhanced their eyes, or the secret to how they have enhanced their eyes.
  • FreshLook® Illuminate has a smooth colour border that enlarges and outlines the eye.
  • FreshLook® Illuminate has a unique starburst pattern that blends the coloured ring into the iris, mimicking the natural gradation of colour in a person’s iris from the edge of the lens to the centre of the eye.

  • FreshLook® Illuminate uses a brown-black colour chosen specifically to match different shades of Asian eyes.
  • FreshLook® Illuminate has a multi-dimensional lens colour created with a dual-layered colour printing technology to enhance all shades of Asian eyes, from light brown to black.
  • FreshLook® Illuminate sits well in the centre of the eye and follows eye movements closely. 
  • FreshLook® Illuminate incorporates AquaRelease™, a built-in moisturiser with a patented blink-activated technology for longer-lasting moisture and comfort.
  • FreshLook® Illuminate is manufactured with the patented Lightstream Technology™ that locks the pigments inside the lens so that it does not come into direct contact with the eye.
  • FreshLook® Illuminate is made of non-ionised material that attracts 300 times less protein than ionic materials, thus minimising deposit levels.
  • FreshLook® Illuminate is available at Php 650.00 for a box of 10pcs in all leading optical clinics. 

I know how enticing buying the cheaper lenses are. But I want to remind you that you're risking your eyesight every time you wear one. In cases like this, it's better to be safe than sorry and better to spend a little for a branded one that you can trust that end up paying more in the end.

Treasure your eyes and care for it always. Use only authentic products made specifically for your eyes by brands that you can trust. When in doubt, better not to buy. :)

DAILIES® FreshLook® ILLUMINATE™ is now available in all leading optical clinics nationwide.
