  • Lid wipe comparison

    I went on a lid wipe purchase binge not too long ago and have decided to create a comparison sheet. Currently, I'm noting:
    Brand / Name of wipe,
    Sheet size,
    Sheet "feel" (soft or other),
    Appearance,
    Burning / Stinging (of course, this is personal but it still could help others),
    Ingredients,
    Misc Notes,
    Description from website.

    All but one of these I purchased on Amazon so I don't have a column for that although if there's something particular to note, in that regard, I will in Notes.
    All of the wipes I purchased are No Rinse wipes because that's my preference, so that is also not a necessary column.
    I also am not noting cost because that can vary widely depending on where you purchase these wipes -- there were some sheets I found cheaper elsewhere, online, but due to shipping, convenience, and not wanting a subscription (more than one offered that option), I bought them all on Amazon

    Are there any details that I might be leaving out that people might be interested in? I started today with Blephaclean but since I could still add columns without missing too many of the 5 I'm reviewing. Once my review is completed, I'll post the spreadsheet for those who are interested.

    Cool thread. I would like to know how much relief you got from each as well if that's possible!

      Hi PotatoCakes. I don't know if you also plan to compare foam lid cleansers, but foam vs. wipes of the same brand can be quite different. For example, I used Ocusoft Lid Scrub Plus Wipes with little success, and then when one of my doctors suggested I try the foam version, Ocusoft Lid Scrub Plus Foaming Cleanser, I tried it and for me the foam works much better.

        Hokucat - Right now I'm just doing wipes. I often use Theratears SteriLid foaming cleanser. I like it but it's not great for travel, especially with a carry on because it's another liquid. I don't use Ocusoft foaming cleanser simply because I can't find it in a store here, so haven't compared the two. Walgreens carries SteriLid. Oddly, the Ocusoft wipes seem to be everywhere, just not their cleanser.

        Faith - Unfortunately, I haven't found a wipe or cleanser that gives me relief so I won't be measuring that. My dry eye is bad enough that I've given up on anything making it better / giving me relief; my goal has been to simply manage my symptoms for years. Hopefully, though, I'll be able to provide enough information that people can more easily find a wipe (out of these 5) that does give them some relief, if they are lucky enough to have wipes make a difference.

          You're right, the Ocusoft foaming lid scrubs only seem readily avaible online, not in retail stores for some reason. I order it online. The foams are available on Amazon, and online at Walmart, Walgreens, The Dry Eye Shop, etc.
