MY HEALTH HANDBAG ESSENTIALS FOR SPRING FEAT. MURINE CLEAR EYES (FOR RED EYES) + HYDRALYTE APPLE BLACKCURRANT EFFERVESCENT ELECTROLYTE TABLETS



HELLO EVERYBODY! 

How's everyone going? I am hoping the answer is AMAZING! When it comes to my handbag, I usually have it packed with useless tissues, wipes and simply bits and pieces that weigh our bags down. This could be old tickets, gadgets that you don't even need to use or snacks that should be hidden from view. That's why when it comes to your health, it's so important to have the health essentials stocked in your bag, which is why I am happy to chat about TWO health essentials I always carry with me in my bag. They're essential to my daily life and could too be important for yours too. 

The TWO health essentials I always look to carry in my bag are: 
  • Murine Clear Eyes - Clears Red Eyes (Eye-drops 15ml) 
  • Hydralyte - Apple Blackcurrant Effervescent Electrolyte Tablets (Contains 20) 

Why I've included both of these items in my daily handbag is because one - my eyes literally get red and sore considering how many hours I spend looking at the computer screen, and two - now that the temperatures are literally soaring in Australia, it's good to get hydrated so that's why I look to pop one or two tablets in a glass of cold water when possible. 

Check out more into detail of how these work and what purpose it would be useful for your everyday life! 

1. HANDBAG ESSENTIAL #1

FEATURING HYDRALYTE - APPLE BLACKCURRANT EFFERVESCENT ELECTROLYTE TABLETS

This helps to replace water and electrolytes lost due to vomiting, diarrhoea, heavy sweating, vigorous exercise and excess alcohol consumption AKA your ideal hangover cure. 

This would be helpful if you're out in the sun and you're feeling quite dehydrated, then this would be super handy because it helps to replace water and electrolytes that's lost to may factors as mentioned above. This tablet helps to manage any forms of dehydration due to the loss of fluids through heavy sweating and seeing that summer and spring are just around the corner, it's perfect to keep in your handbag - just in case. The hydralyte helps to restore fluid that's lost to as a result of the diuretic effect of alcohol and usually it's best taken before you go to bed so that when you wake up the next morning, you'll so much refreshed and energized. I call this my hangover cure! What better way to replenish your lost fluids. I took two tablets after a big night out with a few cocktails and mocktails involved. The next morning I did not feel dehydrated (which I would normally feel after a few drinks!) but in this case, I felt that refreshed, hydrated and of course full of energy once again. 

Ideally, the Hydralyte is definitely perfect for travelling on the go because it fits in your handbag well, plus it's always handy to be carrying a tube around. They are also suitable for the entire family and even safe for pregnant and breastfeeding mothers out there.

2. HANDBAG ESSENTIAL #2

FEATURING MURINE CLEAR EYES, CLEARS RED EYES EYE DROPS. 

Clears red eyes and brightens eyes for up to 8 hours. 

I constantly look at the computer screen everyday for more than 8 hours and you can really imagine how much impact it has for my eyes. They get sore and start getting red and irritated. Thanks to this handy bottle of Murine Clear eyes, Clears Red Eyes, I can truly rely on a product that can keep me going throughout the day. Not only that, there are so many factors that contribute to us getting red, bloodshot eyes but I would say because I am surrounded in an air-conditioned environment all day long, my eyes get super dry and irritated which is not a comfortable feeling. 

Red or bloodshot eyes are caused by the widening or dilation of blood vessels in the white part of the eye. The blood vessels look prominent and this is what gives your eyes the red, pinkish appearance to it. 

I've used Murine Clear Eyes every day and I've found that it looked to clear the redness and dryness from my eyes. It's best to use the eyedrops at night or depending on how dry they are during the day, then of course you can squeeze a few drops into your eyes then. I've also found that after using the drops, my eyes were brightened for up to 8 hours so this gives me some form of comfort to my eyes. The key active ingredient is Naphazoline Hydrochloride which is a decongestant and vasconstrictor that helps to reduce any signs of blood vessels hence removing any redness and brightens up the eyes. 

It's definitely useful and convenient to have the Murine Clear Eyes Eye drops in your handbag because the weather and external surroundings is so unpredictable, you never know when you'll need this! 

HOW TO USE: 
  • Gently squeeze one or two drops into each eye up to four times a day, or as directed by your doctor. 
  • TO avoid any contamination, do not touch eye dropper tip to any surface. 
  • Discard after 4 weeks of opening. 
WHERE TO PURCHASE:
