Firmoo Glasses Review


Who else thinks that shopping for glasses is frustrating and time consuming? Because of this, I usually tend to buy my glasses online rather than spend hours in the store with sometimes annoying salesmen. At the same time, I only wear my glasses at most 2 days out of the week, so I hate to pay those high in-store prices.
A few weeks ago, I was contacted by Firmoo (www.firmoo.com), and online company that sells glasses at a great prices! All their glasses retail at $39. You can go on to pick your lens strength and tint if you like. The sales team at Firmoo was so easy to work with, and super friendly with all of my questions. The other thing that I really loved was the speedy shipping. They came so much faster than I anticipated. These are the pair that I chose!
 
 I went with a pair that was a little different than the other pair that I own. I have never worn glasses with a lens this "big", but I really liked the look and decided to give it a go. These pictures are directly from the Firmoo site, where they give you a picture of every angle. You can also upload the glasses onto an image that most closely matches you to see how it looks. 
After I filled out my settings and specifications, the glasses were shipped to me! They came with a drawstring bag to store the glasses in, as well as a really sturdy case. 
I'm not one who likes to take close up pictures of my face, but I wanted you to be able to see the glasses on, so I gave in. Here are a couple different views of the glasses in action!
 
 I think it will take a little time to get used to the bigger frames, but I love them so far! I wore them to work the day I got them and received a lot of compliments on them, with some asking where they were from. I love that the case is so sturdy - I don't have to worry about the screws getting bent out of shape and the case not lining up (issues I have had with other brands). I love the tortoise print on these, however they do come in a solid color - a black if i remember right - in case the tortoise isn't your thing. They wear very well, and don't give me a headache after wearing for 12 hours at a time at work.
The other great thing was that Firmoo has a ton of styles and options; I had to enlist a coworker to help me narrow down my choices! 
This was a sponsored post, however all the opinions are my own. I would highly recommend this brand to others, and will be using it again when I have to urge to try out a different style!
I know a lot of people go with Warby Parker, which is also a brand I'd like to try in the future, but what are your favorite sites to shop for glasses online?

  5. Those look perfect on you - I love them! I've purchased from Warby Parker before, but Firmoo looks great as well. Do they provide the same charity incentive?

  8. Those glasses are so cute. Have you tried the app from glasses.com? It's free and let's you "try on" virtually any glasses or sunglasses after you snap a few selfies. Genius I tell ya!

  9. My union at work provides me with two free pairs of glasses but the options are so limited. Those Firmoo glasses are much cuter!

  11. One day I hope to get surgery to fix my terrible eye sight...until then, I feel you in how expensive glasses are! I love how there are new sites (they are at least new to me) that have awesome glasses for cheaper!

    Love Always,
