    Description (by Rebecca)

    My favorite tape - hands down. Absolutely worth the extra cost. When I need to tape a lid down, I apply one strip of the wider type vertically, pressing down the top downwards and removing it top down as well. Obviously not suitable for those with silicone allergy, but for the rest of us, it's about as eyelid/eyelash friendly as a tape can get.

     

    Please note that there are a variety of tape application approaches. Vertical does not work for everyone! Believe it or not there are even youtube videos on the subject. Experiment till you find the method that seals your lids the most effectively.

     

    Description (from the manufacturer's literature)

    This tape is fantastic!

    Because my eyes will not stay completely closed during the night, my eye doctor recommended this tape. Specifically, this brand - because it’s the best!

    Best relief for eyelids that don't close...

    I have very dry eyes. And my right eyelids don't close when I sleep. Not good.

    Rebecca recommended I try this tape to keep my eyelids closed through the night.

    It works great.

    My eye is moist when I wake up.

    And the tape comes off gently.

    Thanks for your help Rebecca.

    I do really like this tape. It’s gentle on the skin but my eye is still watering at night which then loosens the tape further. I tape it correctly as in stated in how to apply. Paper tape has fine the same thing but i definitely like the feel of this tape better. I’m going to keep trying. Great product though my just be my eye lol

    Works

    One of my eyes doesn’t close all the way when I sleep. This tape works very well. I cut off a piece to fit eyelid area down over lashes in a vertical leaving the inner area uncovered as directed by my doctor.
