Firmoo.com: Do You Wear Glasses?

Happy Wednesday!!! :D

Do you guys wear glasses?
I've been wearing glasses since I was in the 3rd grade. I have really, really bad eyesight... probably because I didn't listen to my Mom when I was a kid -- I loved reading so much that I still read my books way past "lights out", haha! 
I know, I know, I'm such a cool kid nerd! ;)

The funny thing is only my older sister has perfect vision, the rest of us got stuck with wearing glasses, haha!
I think I've had about 8 eyeglasses in my lifetime... I've had my fair share of really embarrassing glasses, oh gosh, I can't even begin to explain, haha! You don't know how happy I was when eyeglasses started becoming fashionable! 

Right now, I have two eyeglasses. My brother, on the other hand, only has one and it's seriously starting to fall apart. That's why I was really happy when Firmoo.com emailed me about a review! 
As a back-to-school present for my brother, I got him new eyeglasses. :D


First off though, here's a little something about Firmoo:

Firmoo.com is the world's most popular online eyeglasses store. Years of expertise in optical industry enable Firmoo.com to offer varieties of high quality prescription eyewear to the consuming public at extremely affordable prices. The low prices in Firmoo.com never compromise the quality of eyewear, treating the quality and services to consumers as top priority. More importantly, Firmoo.com is aware of the aesthetic functionality of eyeglasses. Though long being an integral part of the fashion industry, eyeglasses are never consumed in the same manner as other fashion items, with the expensive price being the major hurdle. Firmoo.com makes the fashion-conscious consumers’ dream of creating a real eyewear wardrobe a reality.

Their shipping is fast, especially considering these glasses came all the way from China!
They sent me my tracking number on August 13th and I received the package on the 17th = 4 days! :)


The glasses came with two cases:


- a regular case


- a pouch

It also comes with a special cleaning cloth:


My brother and I chose the Unisex Acetate Full Rim Eyeglasses.

At $24.95, this is definitely very affordable! 
And the prescription lenses are already included in the price! :)

You do have to pay for shipping, but if your order adds up to $39 or more, shipping is free!
(Use code FREESHIP)


This is a pair of unisex full rim acetate frames that perfectly blend an amazing mix of retro and modern style. 
The front frame is classic and conservative in its retro look and color. This stunning frame is perfect for fashion conscious youth -- it will make a chic match with different outfits and it can be a way to express your unique style. 

The total weight with lenses is 27g.


The glasses look great and the fit is perfect!
My brother said it's really comfortable.
The sizing/ measurements provided online are really accurate.

The screws were a little bit loose at first, but it is easily fixable especially because they provide a mini screwdriver:


I was able to tighten the glasses right away, yay!
How cool, right?!


They also come with two extra screws -- that is so thoughtful of them!
In all my years of wearing eyeglasses, this is the first time I ever got extra screws and a screwdriver... my Prada glasses from my optometrist didn't even have them. Bonus points for Firmoo! :)

They have a wide selection of glasses to choose from. 
If you don't wear eyeglasses, don't worry, they also have sunglasses -- there's definitely something for everyone! :)

And to add to that, Firmoo is offering free eye wear to first time buyers -- all you have to do is pay for shipping, that's it! Amazing, right?! 
You can learn more about their program here.

You can also keep up to date with Firmoo through Facebook and Twitter.

  18. I don't wear glasses, but I would wear these because they are super cute. When I was younger I thought glasses looked stupid and that I would have to opt for contacts if I ever needed to better my vision. But I was totally afraid of contacts. So I'm really happy that glasses look so chic these days.

  22. I don't even know where to begin about Firmoo. I got to review glasses for them too and it's seriously amazing! I love them. They're definitely super comfy. The only thing is, I didn't have my prescription at the time. :/
