Firmoo Sunglasses {Sponsored Review} and an Offer for You!

Hey there! I was so excited when I was recently contacted by Firmoo to review a pair of glasses.  Did you know that Firmoo is the world's most popular online eyeglass store?

As someone who is an avid online shopper the idea of virtually trying on glasses and ordering right from my computer totally intrigued me. And the process was so simple!

I knew from the moment I was asked by Firmoo to participate in this review that I would get sunglasses.  My eyes are super sensitive to light, so sunglasses are a necessity for me. 

As I mentioned, Firmoo offers a virtual try-on system. You can even upload your own photo! 

Once you find the perfect frame, you just simply fill in your prescription information (if applicable).  Since I did want a prescription added to my lenses I just filled out a simple chart with my prescription specifics (my ophthalmologist always gives me a laminated prescription card when my script changes) and had my husband take one quick measurement using a standard ruler. And that was it! Seriously.

I went with these cute plastic framed, black and white two-toned sunglasses.  One thing, as I went to write this review, I tried to link back to these actual glasses on the Firmoo site, but they were no longer available.  Product seems to move quickly so if you see something you like do not hesitate.  This may be particularly true for sunglasses as the selection was not vast to begin with.  However, in perusing their site I did see that they had a large selection of traditional (non sunglasses) frames.

So, as I mentioned, (thanks to a particularly horrific bout of shingles in my eye), my eyes tend to be quite light sensitive.  My new Firmoo sunglasses provide adequate protection; even with the glare of snow on the ground.  In comparison to my other sunglasses (which were purchased at a large retail eyeglass shop for approximately $200), my Firmoo sunglasses are made of decidedly thinner plastic.  However, they were immediately comfortable (with no adjustments needed) and seem sturdy enough for everyday wear.

Lastly, my package arrived (after about a two-week wait) with both a hard and soft case, cleaning cloth, tool set (with key chain attachment) and replacement screws.  This was way more than I ever received with more expensive glasses and provides extra protection to add to the longevity of the new glasses.

What do you think?  Firmoo is offering a first pair free program on their site right now. You just pay shipping. Plus, they have a full refund if you are not satisfied with your glasses.  You can find more info and order your free glasses here

In the past I would only have one frame that would have to go with every outfit and look, because it was just too costly to have multiple styles and colors. However, with Firmoo's excellent quality, affordable prices, fashionable designs and fast delivery, you can totally afford to make glasses an everyday coordinating accessory (prescription or not).

*Please note that I was contacted by Firmoo to review a pair of glasses of my choice at no cost to me.  These opinions are my own.
