Looking after my eyes is always something I’m careful about doing as I want to keep them in optimum condition but am prone to small infections such as styes several times a year. I tend to wear eye make up at least six days a week, and it’s important to remove every last trace which can be hard when you have eyeliner, mascara and eyeshadow lodged around the lash line after a long day at work.
I’ve been trying out Biotrue, a preservative and detergent free eyelid wipe for daily use. They are so gentle you can even use them on babies. Each wipe is individually sealed for hygiene and to keep them sterile until use. I found each wipe to be a generous size and plentifully moist to really cleanse the eye area and remove any last traces of dirt or make up that are left behind after my regular cleanse. They leave your eye feeling fresh and clean and hopefully free of infection. Also if you have an infection, be it a stye or something like conjunctivitus then these would be brilliant for using each morning and night to really help remove bacteria and clean up your eyelid in a gentle way.
Moving on to the TheraPearl eye mask, a new favourite of mine. This reusable mask can be used hot or cold to relieve dry eyes, headaches, puffy eyes and more. In this cold weather and with long days I’m incredibily tired in the evening after a day at work and I’ve found this to be a great way to relax before I go to bed. When the kids are tucked up in bed I gently warm this up in the microwave, go and lie on my bed for 20 minutes with the mask on and totally relax in peace, which sets me up perfectly to drift off to sleep after releasing all the stresses of everyday life away.
It can also be used cold by keeping it in the freezer for a couple of hours which I have tried and it feels great to soothe sore, puffy, tired eyes but I think this will be better used in the Summer months when the weather is warmer and the cold mask will have maximum effect and feel like a total treat.

One daily battle I have at home with the children is keeping their hands clean. They are forever outside, collecting mud under their fingernails, or inside using arts and craft materials. I’m constantly asking them to wash their hands whether it’s after using the toilet or before they have something to eat. Dettol have come up with a great solution, Automatic Hand Wash.
How cool is this? I just love the sleek silver dispenser and no more messing around pressing fiddly hand soap pumps, just pop your hands underneath and a blob of soap drops onto your hands!
This is perfect for my children to use and leaves no excuse for washing their hands. I know my little boy would often say he couldn’t push the pump down on a normal soap dispenser but with this it’s so simple. The hand wash is anti bacterial too, just what you need for muddy hands. Both my children have been using this daily and I can definitely say they have been washing their hands more willingly. When the soap runs out, you can simply buy a refill pack and it just pops inside, in place of the empty bottle.
I’ve also been liking the Power & Pure Multi Purpose Kitchen spray from the Dettol range. With active oxygen and killing 99.9% of bacteria, this foamy spray is great for all round use in the kitchen. This easily dissolves grease, dirt and soap scum, and I’ve had great results on my hob, draining board and around the sink leaving them shiny and clean.
Also in the range is a Surface Cleanser spray which has no odour and is great for surfaces you want to place food directly on such as in the fridge. Power & Pure Advance Bathroom wipes have a lovely mountain fresh fragrance. They are large wipes and with 80 in a pack will last a while. These are ideal for giving the bathroom sink a wipe round and over the taps. I also used these around the bath and across the tiles. They are so handy for a quick clean and being disposable means they are hygenic and not collecting germs like cloths can sometimes.
