I don't really use eye drops but was really intrigued when I read somewhere that this brand of eye drops is like 'crack for you eyes'. This is a different variant from what I read about, but this was the one that was easily available to me.

My eyes weren't feeling particularly fatigued or anything, so I just went in and used it.
There was a mild, minty sting. I couldn't open my eyes for a few seconds and I was a bit teary eyed after. Again, my eyes were fine beforehand so I didn't feel it did anything except sting my eyes so I decided I would give it another go when my eyes were dry or fatigued.
Fast forward to around 3am, I was sleepy af but I want to keep on playing some game on my laptop. I decided this is now the time to try the eyedrops again. It still stings but it actually perked me up for about an hour before I start feeling sleepy again.
It has almost been a month since I started using this, and yes it still stings but it doesn't bother me anymore. I don't use it everyday, just when I'm super sleepy and I need to stay up some more. I actually want to try the cooler variants! I think this is just level 3 coolness, but it goes up to level 7.
