Maxlook SCL Choco Silicone Hydrogel Review

Thursday, 30 July 2015

I received this super comfy choco lens along with the grey version (review here) from Klenspop. They are both made of silicone hydrogel, which allows 5 times more oxygen to circulate to the eyes compared to normal lenses. These are a great pick for people with sensitive eyes, if you cannot wear regular circle lenses, I would recommend giving these a try as the comfort level is fantastic. 

The SCL choco 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: 14mm (graphic diameter)
BC: 8.8mm
6 month wear
Origin: Korea
Material: silicone hydrogel






The lens looks just like a thin, translucent contact with a natural gradient brown pattern. 




I like the look of these lenses, but you can see the black ring of my natural iris through the lens, giving it a double ring look. This is only really apparent at close range though. The lens is a nice dark brown and there is not much variation in colour so they are quite flat, just like real brown eyes. There is no dark limbal ring and they are so natural looking that I doubt anyone will know you are wearing contacts. They still manage to make my eyes look bigger and brighter although the enlarging effect is minimal.



As with all lenses, the right one slips due to my astigmatism. It never affects my vision though.


Overall, I like the choco better than the grey pair! I can easily wear these for 6-8 hours at a time and can wear them daily, as they are suitable for work and clinic. I just feel so much more attractive when I'm wearing circle lenses and it gives me such a confidence boost without feeling self conscious, because I know most people don't know these are not my real eyes!

If you're looking for a natural, amazingly comfortable lens, or have sensitive eyes, try these from Klenspop. You can't go wrong. 

*I was gifted these lenses for review. All my opinions are 100% honest.
