[REVIEW] ROHTO Cooling Eye Drops is finally in Malaysia!

by - June 01, 2016

It was about 2 week ago when ROHTO decided to drop a surprise to my doorstep. 
I could not make it to their launching event on the 2nd April due to my FYP but it seemed they never forgets. 
Thank you for this refreshing parcel <3 

So what is ROHTO all about?
Manufactured in Osaka, Japan by ROHTO Pharmaceutical Co. Ltd, ROHTO eye drops is the 
Number #1 eye drop brand in Japan. It is recently brought in to Malaysia under the wings of Mentholatum Malaysia, which is well known with many other brands such as Hada Labo, Botanics and Oxy.

ROHTO is not something new to me. I came to know about this brand few years back when my dearest uncle who had severe eye dryness brought some back from his Japan trip. The one he gave to me has a very cute square and sleek design.

These two is very much similar. Do you know they even have a cooling scale?

Say Hello to both ROHTOs <3

ROHTO Cool eye drops cooling level marks at 5 out of 8, (level 0 means mild) which is slightly cooler than average eye drops for the refreshing kick. Although I have learnt to appreciate the cooling effects of ROHTO Cool eye drops, it is not without some 'super exciting' first time experience. Some people might find it hard to tolerate mint drops in their eyes; tbh I wasn't a frequent contact lens user back then with almost no reason to benefit it's 'spicy' sensation. However, to those who suffered from eye irritation and tiredness, the 'spicy' sensation quickly turns to a comfortable cool refreshing one :)
Want an extra kick for faster refreshed eyes? Store them in the refrigerator.
You are most welcome :)

You will thankful as ROHTO Cool eye drops is suitable for usage with and without contact lens! Now, that is cost savvy for contact lens users as you don't have to buy 2 different eye drops.

Check if you fit into these categories.
ROHTO Cool eye drops might just make the rest of your day a better one :)
  • Prolonged exposure to computer/ TV usage
  • Wears contact lens
  • Minor eye irritation caused by smog, dust, wind, sun glare and chlorinated water
  • Working in an air-conditioned room

The unique transparent bottle is not only for ecstatic purposes. It makes things a lot more easier to detect any abnormalities in the eye drop solution such as cloudiness or change in color although it is always good to use any eye drops within 2-3 months from opening date.

If you notice the nozzle tip of ROHTO Cool eye drops, it is specially designed to facilitate accurate eye drop instillation without messy side dripping, which can increase risk of contamination.  I used to need assistant when it comes to using eye drop but not anymore.

Personally, I liked ROHTO Cool eye drops' palm size design. I always had problems in searching for my tiny winy eyedrop in my messed up handbag (You don't want to know what is in there). The larger than average size and slim body makes it easier to be identified. It's slimmer design can also fit nicely into your ladies' purse <3

In summary, these are the 5 things I like most about 
ROHTO Cool eye drops.

  • Cooling effect that smooths the eye
  • Transparency in packaging that enhances safety feature
  • No-drip nozzle that prevents mess and contamination
  • Thin bottle design allowing easy storage in small compartments, eg wallet
  • Palm-sized, bigger than conventional eye drop makes finding it easier in my messy handbag

If you are not up to the 'mint' challenge yet, there are another 2 variants besides ROHTO Cool eye drops;
the ROHTO Aqua with cooling level 0 to provide gentle moisturizing effect

ROHTO Dry Aid with cooling level 1 for dry eye relief (only suitable for non-contact lens wearer).

ROHTO Cool eye drops is available at most leading pharmacies, drugstore and hypermarkets at at RM16.90 inclusive of GST.  At 13mls per bottle, I felt the price is slightly pricier compared to the other eye drops but still within a reasonable range, having to be the only eye drop that gives a different type of refreshing sensation yet effective results and it's transparent safety feature. I find most eye drops we have in the market does not last long in maintaining the keeping our eyes fresh and there is a need to continuously apply them, but ROHTO Cool eye drops only requires one drop to last a couple of hours (It is advisable to put 1-2 drops for 5 to 6 times a day).

So, are you up to the refreshing challenge?
