Review: Hay fever relief by Liz Earle Eye Bright
I can not call this a review as it is as essential to me as fresh air so let's call it a coping mechanism for summer. The glorious sunshine brings not so glorious hayfever.
Hands up who has hayfever?
There are so many of us you only need to look at the pharmacy counter in Boots!
Thankfully only two of my children suffer. My number 1 and number 4. I am yet to find anyone who suffers from hayfever as bad as my eldest. For the past twenty years, I have watched in pity as he battles through the summer.
As I type this blog I am watching my number 4 curled up on the couch asleep, drained after a day with a high pollen count. As a mother, it does make me sad watching them suffer as they have your imperfections.
Last night my eyes were so swollen and red that today I went bare of make-up. Irritated eyes will not thank you for super sexy long lashes so simply wear your sunglasses and a smile.
How many of you actually wash your sunglasses?
No, I do not mean on the corner of your blouse I mean to get rid of pollen and any sticky residue build up from the day.
Fill up a bowl of soapy water and give them a good wash. Mine are from Next so built to last if you have posh designer ones that may disintegrate at the sign of water, do it at your own risk.

If you are unaware of Liz and her company ethics have a read here (Amazing lady!)
Obviously you will still need allergy medication (whatever works for you) and a handkerchief. Google ways to keep pollen at bay within your home. I did have a chuckle doing this as the amount of plagiarism on the subject is very entertaining.
Let me know if you use Eyebright already and how you find it helps you.
