As promised in my post a couple of weeks ago, this entry will be focused on my user review of the 1 • DAY ACUVUE® DEFINE™ beauty enhancement contact lenses.

Review: 1 • DAY ACUVUE® DEFINE™ Contact Lenses (Natural Shine)

A quick recap on the 1 • DAY ACUVUE® DEFINE™ lenses before we delve into the review.

1. This is the only brand of beauty enhancement contact lenses that offers UV protection of more than 80% UVA and 95% UVB.

2. The company uses a “Beauty Wrapped in Comfort™” (BWIC) technology which protects your eyes from potentially harmful colour pigments.

Referring to the diagram above, as the colourants are sandwiched between two thin, transparent layers of lens material, the colourant does not touch the eye at all. Nonetheless, the technology allows oxygen transmissibility, allowing your eyes to stay fresh and comfortable.

3. There are 3 different designs to choose from – and all designs aim to make Asian eyes look naturally bigger, sparkling and more beautiful. I opted for the Natural Shine style.

As you can see from the above, the effect of the Natural Shine lens is subtle. My right iris looked slightly larger, but most importantly, it looked more sparkly as compared to the left iris.

  • If you would like to go for natural and alluring eyes for all occasions, the 1 • DAY ACUVUE® DEFINE™ would work very well. It is not too dramatic as compared to some of the other options in the market, but it does create a positive effect on the overall look. I like how my eyes become more dimensional after wearing the Natural Shine lenses.
  • These are daily disposables, which is extremely convenient and hygienic because no cleaning is required.
  • For those who have undergone LASIK surgery before (like me), our cornea would be flatter than normal as a result. This is why ACUVUE® strongly encourage everyone to visit the optometrist for an eye check prior to purchasing the lenses. In some cases, your cornea could be too flat that the curvature of these lenses is not suitable for the eye. As for me, I was able to fit the lenses well, but I could only wear for about 8 hours and would need to apply eye drops thereafter to add moisture to the eyes.
  • My vision was surprisingly clear, and not obstructed by the colourant! It almost felt as if I wasn’t wearing any lenses at all. In fact, I had to make a mental note to remove my contact lenses at the end of the day because this step has not been part of my daily regime for many years. I really almost forgot that I was having them on a couple of times.

In short, the 1 • DAY ACUVUE® DEFINE™ contact lenses help to beautify your look in an elegant and subtle manner. The effect is not radical, therefore suitable for formal and official occasions. In fact, I am currently wearing these lenses on special occasions or events when I would like to feel and look better.

Each box of 15 pairs retail at S$61.10. You can redeem a free trial pair by registering via ACUVUE® e-trial website. For more updates on ACUVUE®, or to ask any question, do check out their Official Facebook Page!
