Glasses & sunglasses (style #4f1004) c/o Firmoo

I was recently contacted by Firmoo who offered to send me a pair of prescription glasses to try out.
Having just been for an eye test a week beforehand (freaky!) and being told my glasses wearing time is on the up again (too much crafting apparently) it all seemed very serendipitous.

I decided to go with a pair of prescription sunglasses as I don't have any, and thought they'd be great for crafty afternoons in the garden.
Choosing the frames was pretty hard as there are so many to choose from, and it did feel a bit weird not being able to try them on. You can upload a photo of your face though which despite looking pretty silly actually helped tons and definitely helped me choose the right frames to fit my face.
Unfortunately due to an error in the order process, I received standard glasses instead of sunglasses, but this was resolved super quickly and I was sent the correct ones as well as keeping the original pair.

After a few weeks of wearing both pairs (admittedly the sunglasses less frequently) I'm pretty happy with them.
They're comfortable and feel solidly made - they actually feel more solid than my other glasses and I find myself reaching for these more often.
I've read other Firmoo reviews in which people have mentioned headaches, but this isn't something I've had a problem with apart from after the first day, but I expected this anyway as my prescription is now stronger.

I'd definitely recommend giving Firmoo a go if you're looking for a new pair of specs - and don't be put off by the idea of ordering online as they've made the whole process really user friendly. Plus they always seem to have offers on so you can definitely find yourself a bargain!


  1. These look simply AMAZING!
    My specs are out of prescription at the minute but I don't have the pennies to get a new pair yet!

    The shape you chose REALLY suit you and just look absolutely fab!
    You look great :D

  2. These look so lovely on you Skye! Always perving over new glasses frames, will add these to the list!

  3. As i said before, I LOVE your non sunglasses glasses, they really suit you! I also like the sunglasses glasses! Both my pairs of glasses are now buggered thanks to daughter banging them on the floor, they now sit wonky on my face! Now is thus probably time to actually investigate new ones! Only a few years too late! xx
