Firmoo Glasses Review

*This product was sent to me by Firmoo for free. This does not change my opinion on the product whatsoever*

Hello everyone! Now I rarely venture outside the realm of beauty products, but I think glasses still count. :) As you may or may not know, I am quite nearsighted. I wear contacts on a day to day basis, but I switch to prescription glasses when my eyes feel tired or I just feel like wearing glasses! When Firmoo contacted me to review a pair of glasses, I just couldn't say no! First of all, my old pair of glasses were in my old prescription, so I was due for a new pair. Plus, Firmoo had such a great selection! 

Firmoo is an online eye glasses store, which sells both prescription and non-prescription glasses and sunglasses for both men and women. Firmoo has a good selection of glasses, as well as very affordable prices. I think this site is particularly great for people who need a pair of prescription glasses, but their eye insurance only covers either contacts or glasses. Even though I'd rather wear contacts primarily, I think every contact lens wearer still needs glasses, since it's good to give your eyes a break every once and while.

So I went online to pick out a pair of glasses, and I found the process rather easy. Normally I would not order glasses online since I rather pick them out in store, but it was easier than I expected. Once I had narrowed it down to a couple frames, I was even able to download a picture of myself and "virtually" try on the glasses I'd picked. I thought that was definitely a cool feature! I choose a pair of black square-framed glasses, with blue on the inner frames. Then I added my eye glass prescription to the order. Click here to see the exact pair I chose.

Once I made my order, I received a confirmation email immediately afterwards and another email with tracking information the day after. My glasses came in the mail approximately 4-5 days after the day I made my order, so shipping was fairly fast!

The first thing I noticed upon wearing the glasses was just how sturdy they are. Maybe I'm used to wearing flimsier glasses, but these just seemed to be well made! I didn't have the feeling that I could bend them as easily as my older glasses, and I really liked the idea that they would most likely hold up well with time. I love the style of them overall, especially the black and blue color combo. My only criticism is that they might be a bit wide for my face, but mostly they are just a new style I'm getting used to. I must say, I'm really loving having a new pair of glasses, especially ones that I feel comfortable wearing!

I'm always wearing my glasses in the evening, so I apologize if the lightening isn't amazing.

If you're interested in trying Firmoo glasses or sunglasses, they have a first pair free program. All you have to do is pay shipping, and the glasses come free! Standard shipping for approximately one pair of glasses is $6.95. That's a great deal for a good quality pair of glasses!

I'm very happy with these glasses, and would definitely consider ordering another pair in the future.

  2. That was a great timing on their part! It’s like they knew you were in need of new ones soon! Haha! Anyway, it’s great that you found a pair that you immediately liked, and that it fits you so well! I’m sure you’ll get used to the wide frame, given some time. Cheers!
