After a recent trip to the opticians and the realisation that a new prescription meant new glasses, I was horrified at the prospect of paying at least £50 for a pair I liked. So when Firmoo* contacted me about receiving a pair of their glasses, I jumped at the chance.
Firmoo are an online glasses store, where prices start from $39 (that's about £24!) - much cheaper than the high street. The best thing about Firmoo though is that they offer a program to get your first pair completely free, you only need to pay for shipping. They even have a feature where you can upload a photo of yourself to 'try on' the different pairs of glasses, which is pretty helpful when it comes to choosing the right pair.
The pair I chose are listed on the website as #F03, a lovely full-framed tortoisehell pair of specs. Shipping took about 2 weeks and they arrived fully cased and with a few extra bits and bobs like a soft case, cleaning cloth and a little bag of spare screws. Although my hard case came a little bashed, the glasses were absolutely fine.
I was really surprised by the quality, fit and comfort of the glasses. One thing I will say as that the lenses seem to attract smudges and fingerprints. I don't know why this is, as I've never had this happen with glasses before. Not a deal breaker, but a little annoying. Scratch-resistant coating is an option you can choose for the glasses, though this costs extra, but may be something I'd opt for next time.
Overall I think these glasses are fab. Thank you Firmoo, I'm chuffed!
*These glasses were sent to me for free, but as always I am completely honest in my reviews. If I like or dislike a product, you will find out about it!
