Why tea tree oil?

Optometrists LOVE tea tree oil because it works so well to clean the eyelids. Tea tree oil is a natural enemy to bacteria and demodex mites. That's why all of our products contain this key ingredient.

 

I wear heavy waterproof mascara. Would these products work for me?

Absolutely! We Love Eyes products were designed for you. Most of my patients that wear heavy eye makeup also have problems with dry eye and blepharitis. Properly removing all your eye makeup every night will help your eyes feel better. We recommend using the eyelid foaming cleanser first to remove most of your mascara then finish up with the makeup remover oil second. Some patients like to finish with another round of eyelid foaming cleanser for a final wash of the eyes and face. We definitely encourage you to experiment and find out what works best for you.

 

What about falsies and lash extensions?

If you wear temporary false eyelashes, we highly recommend removing them after every use (do not sleep in them) and removing all eye makeup and eyelash glue residue immediately. You will get the best result with our tea tree eye makeup remover oil followed with our tea tree eyelid foaming cleanser.

If you wear eyelash extensions, you cannot use either oil product as they will likely remove your extensions (unless that is your intention). Instead, use our tea tree eyelid foaming cleanser for a gentle wash to remove any excess eye makeup. Rinse with warm water.

 

What is the difference between your tea tree makeup remover oil and your tea tree cleansing oil?

The We Love Eyes tea tree makeup remover oil is great for removing makeup, including waterproof makeup. The We Love Eyes tea tree cleansing oil is formulated with a higher concentration of tea tree oil for people who have symptoms of inflammation from conditions such as blepharitis and/or dry eyes.

 

I’m allergic to eucalyptus. Can I use your products?

No. Tea tree oil comes from the leaves of Melaleuca alternifolia, a tree that is native to Australia. It looks very much like the eucalyptus tree since they are from the same family. We advise against using our products if you are allergic to tea tree, eucalyptus, myrtle or clove as they are all related.

 

I went out of town and left my foaming cleanser stopped foaming. What now?

Our foaming cleanser definitely needs to be shaken before each use. This ensures that all the ingredients (including the ingredient that helps the solution to be foamy) is evenly distributed in the bottle before pumping. Just give the bottle 10-12 vigorous shakes and it will foam again. Promise.

 

My vision gets a little blurry after use. Is this normal? Is it harmful?

Blurring of the vision is a small, occasional side effect of this product as compared to the benefits. You should be using this at the end of the night anyways, so a mild temporary blurring of the vision is not really an issue. In addition, it is not harmful to your eyes in any way. Just make sure to remove your contact lenses prior to use as it may fog up your contact lenses.
