Review: Blood Eye Drops

Blood in Eyes

Just in case you ever what to look like you’re bleeding from your eyes then I thought I should do a review on the Kryolan blood eyedrops. As scary as they look they’re not painful in the slightest. If anything they’re really quite moisturizing!

The consistency is quite odd, like normal eyedrops but with a slightly oily thickness

It kind of feels like you’re putting a thin form of olive oil in your eyes or brand new contact lenses in, its odd but not uncomfortable. If you’re not used to the feeling then it can be a little alarming (kind of like wearing contacts the first time) but just blink a few times to spread it around the eye and you’re ok.

Kryolan Blood Drops

One big draw back to this is it has a pretty limited shelf life, which I suppose is to be expected considering it’s effectively tinted eye drops which also have a short life expectancy. But it can be quite frustrating since it’s very easy to loose track of when you last opened the bottle and it’s not exactly a cheap product.


  • 6ox 
  • £14/£20
  • Effect lasts for 10-20 minutes 
  • Shelf life of 30 day’s once opened
  • Stains skin slightly

You can get this product in different colours, I very nearly got the blue ones a while back for my alien look but I resisted since I thought it might distract from the rest of the makeup and props I had made.


Don’t expect this effect to last longer than 10-15 minutes, this is a top up product since your eye starts to break down the colour after about 10 minutes. Overall the only negative thing I have to say about this product is the shelf life. The price is perfectly normally for a special effects product like this, but the time limit can really make it a kick in the purse unless you’re using it a lot once you’ve opened it.

I picked this up at Charles Fox in Convent Garden but you can also get it here

    Ohhhhhhhhhhhh I like this review!!!,

    could you do more reviews on sfx products?
    Most are expensive so it’s nice to hear someone trustworthy tell us the pros and cons of a product. ^-^

    If the “blood” starts to break down, is it ok to re apply it? :0, oh and you’re amazing :D

    Can you use it with contacts? I’m guessing it is bad for long-term contacts, but if they are one-a-day, could you use it with them in?

      I’m not sure to be honest. I wouldn’t advise it, especially if they’re not disposable :)
