When I was approached by Firmoo to provide a product review on their optical store I thought “why not?!” I mentioned wanting to expand my blog into occasionally doing non polish related reviews (but still accustomed to my taste of course!) so I thought this would be a fun opportunity.
Incase you didn’t know, which I’m sure none of you know haha…I have absolutely horrible eye vision, I’m surprised I’m not considered legally blind yet. With horrible eye vision comes a costly price of doctors visits, contacts, prescriptions, and the cost of frames which if you wear glasses you know they don’t come very cheap. So when I read what Firmoo was about I was even more keen on sharing with my readers, especially since at least a few of you have to be somewhat blind As for you perfect 20/20 freaks you might find this review useful as well (especially the end), so read on.
Firmoo is an online retail site that sells discount priced eye glasses and sunglasses with either prescription lenses or non prescription, its your choice.
Since I didn’t have a current prescription handy I opted for a pair of non prescription sunglasses…it’s always good to have a back up pair in my opinion. The process was VERY easy. Once I decided on the style I filled out a quick and simple form which includes prescription info if necessary, and that was it.
This is what I received in my Firmoo package:
Sunglasses (model #OTO2513), hard case, soft sleeve case, repair kit with screws, and cleaning cloth. I was pretty surprised and impressed with all this. It’s more than I ever get buying high end sun glasses!
Directly from Firmoo:
Why choose Firmoo.com?
“Here at Firmoo, we offer over 300 styles of affordable and stylish frames for you to choose from. Customers even can buy 8 pairs of different eyewear on our site instead of only one pair at the local retail outlet or mall with the same amount money. Different clothes, different mood, different glasses every day, sounds interesting, huh? And if you don’t want to rack your brain to think it over which style suits you most, we offer Virtual Try-On System that helps you see how you look with our glasses or sunglasses. You even are able to use your own photo to try our eyewear virtually, and also you can share your awesome try-on photo on yours and Firmoo’s Facebook wall and see what your friends think of it.”
I didn’t try the virtual try on system with my own picture, but I did with the preloaded model pics. I really enjoyed it because it gave you a better idea of the size and shape of the frames. It’s always a bit intimidating buying glasses or sunglasses without actually trying them on so that helped a bit in my deciding on frames. They also provide detailed measurements on all frames so you can determine whats best for you by that way as well.
Of course I have to incorporate nail polish into this post some how, so I paired up my new sunglasses with Zoya Paloma. I thought they went well together, not too matchy matchy yet still close in color.
My only negative with these glasses is that I found a tiny speck in one of the lenses. It seems to be inside of the lens so I couldn’t really get it off. It doesn’t impede my vision or is that noticeable when wearing, it’s just something I noticed while photographing my sunglasses.
Now onto the awesome part…Firmoo is offering all first time customers a free pair of eyewear. The only catch is that there is a limited amount of free pairs each day. Once you go to Firmoo’s website, select a style you like then click on “New Customer? Get your free pair now” link under the picture. If it is still available you just have to choose one of the options to “share” such as Email, Facebook or Twitter and you’ll receive a voucher for a free pair. The only thing you’ll have to pay for is shipping. If your choice happens to be unavailable you’ll see a countdown clock for when it’s available again.
Incase you’re wondering, none of these links are referral links. I am not receiving any sort of “points” or “credits” for sending you to their site. Just sharing incase any of you happen to like free stuff…
Overall I’m very happy with my Firmoo sunglasses, they don’t have that cheap flimsy feeling that cheaper sunglasses tend to have. They fit perfectly and snug and I love the extra care that was given by including a screw set and two types of cases. If you have a few dollars to spare on shipping I would suggest taking advantage of this free offer. Firmoo also ships internationally, you can find a list of which countries here, so I believe you can get in on the free pair of glasses even if you’re outside of the U.S. although shipping would cost more of course.
Hope everyone is enjoying their Labor Day Weekend! Happy September!!!! …inching closer to fall!
