Hi there! Sorry for the almost a month of disappearance! School was starting and I was trying my best to enjoy my life so much that I completely neglected my blog I'm sorry /kowtows/
Today, I'll be doing a post on how I store my contact lenses!
I must say first, that this is the way that I store my contacts, and you NEED NOT follow what I did, I'm just sharing HOW I DO IT. I'm saying all of these because I don't want to get comments like 'EW!! THAT'S SO UNSANITARY'. I find that my method fits me quite well so I don't really have any intention of changing LOL.
So this is how I store my lenses~
Yes, I know how unsanitary it may seem but I feel like this method fits me the most so I'm sticking with it.
I have the habit of putting both my lenses in one single container because I felt like putting both side of the lenses in two separate containers wastes a lot of space as well as contact solution, so I might as well put both together...and since both my eyes are of the same degree (not really, one is higher than the other but I just follow the lower one because it is a pain in the ass to get two pairs of lenses so that both sides would be different degrees), I don't have to worry that I'm wearing the wrong degree on the wrong eye.
I put my lenses in this small round plastic container that you can get at hardware stores or arts&crafts stores for a relatively cheap price.
One thing I really love about my method of storing lenses, is that this container is made out of transparent plastic! Which means, that you can see what is stored inside, which is absolutely perfect!! Why? Because this means that you are able to clearly see what the colour of the lenses inside are without having to go through the hassle of opening each and every single lens container you own! I especially hate doing that because
1. It's a waste of time especially when you are in a rush, read the second point.
2. I have the habit of changing the lens solution inside whenever I open a lens container because I believe that the liquid inside has been tainted and I'm afraid they'll ruin my lenses.
3. I'll waste a lot of contacts solution as seen in the second point.
To me, this small transparent container is good because like the lens case, it also makes use of the twisting and turning of the lid to keep it close so you don't have to worry that the container will pop open on it's own!
I don't get why some people say that this is unsanitary? Both the lens case and this is made out of plastic so I don't really understand why??
Another good point about this container, is that it is all the same, flat surface and all which makes them perfect for stacking! This saves a whole lot of space for me because I don't really have much space on my table top to put my lens cases and while some lens cases are like really freaking cute (eg. my Rilakkuma ones), THOSE COME WITH UNEVEN TOPS SO YOU CAN'T EVEN STACK THEM AT ALL UNLIKE NORMAL CASES AND THEY WASTE SO MUCH GOD DAMN SPACE URGH. (One of my pet peeves) So yes, I'm fine with my current method.
That is all regarding my storage of contact lenses! If you want to do this but aren't comfortable with the thought of putting two lenses in together, just buy double the amount of containers and put one lens in each! (Though I feel that that is quite a waste of money, liquid and space idea I'm sorry)
See you next time!
Will be doing a few lens reviews soon~ (If you follow my instagram @diiyawn, you would have seen the amount of makeup pictures I posted, each featuring a different kind of lenses hue, just going to use those photos LOL)
