Maxlook SCL 24 Gray Silicone Hydrogel Circle Lens Review
Monday, 20 July 2015
Apologies for my short hiatus, I am currently still studying for my exams but today I have let myself take some time out to put up this circle lens review! The lovely girls at Klenspop generously sent me over 2 lenses to try out from a new brand (to me) called SCL. I received a gray pair and a choco pair and I love them both because they look so natural on me. If you can't tell by now, I gravitate to natural lenses because they look the best with my features- I cannot pull off lenses that are too large or too bold!
The SCL gray lenses and bonus case cost $33 USD, which is a bit more expensive than usual circle lenses, but that's because these are made of silicone hydrogel. Plus you can use my code
'KINE KSGK1SV1' for 10% off!
Diameter: 13.5mm (graphic diameter)
6 month wear
Material: silicone hydrogel
FYI, silicone hydrogel contact lenses are advanced soft lenses that allow more oxygen to pass through to the cornea than regular hydrogel lenses.In fact, silicone hydrogel lenses enable up to five times more oxygen to reach the cornea than regular hydrogel lenses making them the more comfortable choice!
Every pair of lenses comes neatly packaged in a pretty box with a lens case and tweezers inside.
Choco and gray.
A comparison of the lens color. The choco review will be up next week!
The lenses are super comfortable to insert and have not given me any trouble for over 6 hours. They do show a lot of my brown iris through the centre of the lens, so it looks like only the rim is grey coloured. With the darkness of my eyes plus the dark grey lens, these lenses could almost pass for a natural black lens. There is hardly any enlargement factor, thus I would consider these as more of a coloured lens than a circle lens.
Overall, these lenses are perfect if you are looking for an everyday dark grey or black lens that is super comfortable and natural looking in the eyes. Keep in mind that there is hardly any enlargement factor though.
I have also read on other blogs that silicone hydrogel lenses may actually make your cornea more sensitive at first, due to the increased oxygen supply (weird huh)! It may take a couple of days for this feeling to subside and then they should feel normal. Just something to keep in mind.
Have you tried silicone hydrogel lenses before? What was your experience?
*These lenses were gifted for review. All my opinions are 100% honest.
