Sunglasses from FIRMOO!

About a month ago, I was contacted by Antonio from FIRMOO.COM to possibly review a pair or RX glasses or fashion sunglasses. I opted for the sunglasses because with prescription glasses, I like to actually try and feel them on before making any final decisions. After I sent in my order, I was quite surprised at how fast the shipping and delivery was! It's taken me a while to finally write a review, because I've just been incredibly busy with so many different projects and most importantly, being an awesome mom! :) 

FIRMOO claims to be the world's most popular online eyeglass store with over 530,000 fans on their Facebook Page. They carry sunglasses and RX glasses starting from only $8! They have a variety of frames, lenses, and styles to choose from. Their aim? Vision & Fashion, the FRUGAL way. Haha, love it! You get high quality eyewear at such an affordable price! Firmoo launched a program offering free eyewear to first-time buyers in order to make more people try Firmoo’s quality products & excellent service.

This is the pair of fashion sunglasses I chose. I went for this style and color, because I wanted to step out of my basic, boring comfort zone and try something a little more unique. I know this style won't be to everyone's liking, but I actually ended up loving it! I originally seleced the tortoise design frames, but unfortunately they were out of stock. But I can honestly say I'm not disappointed with the color I settled with! I DO feel the bright yellow color would be more appropriate for the summer or spring, but if you're like me, you'll wear what you like no matter the season. 

NOTEI recently found out that these specific frames are being phased out by the manufacturer/designer. However, if you really like them, they are able to check if there are any left in stock for you. (Model #: OTO2506 / Color #: YellowC23) 

First Impression: The packages included: (pictured above) the sunglasses, a case, a cleaning cloth, a velvet pouch, and a clear plastic bag containing a screwdriver and 6 tiny screws. I am incredibly happy with the way it fits & hugs my face! Because I have a really flat nose, most sunglasses (with the exception of higher end designer sunglasses) always end up sliding down the bridge of my nose, so I'll have to constantly push it back up. It's annoying, but I've dealt with it since I started wearing sunglasses. But with these bad boys,  they don't budge! I am very impressed with that quality alone! 
What drew me in from the beginning is the gradient effect of the lenses. I am in absolute love with them! The dark ombre effect next to a bright, yet smooth yellow frame makes an excellent combination. The lenses are what closed the deal for me, but the beautiful detailing of the temples was just an awesome bonus! I also love that the temples are made of real metal rather than the typical silver painted plastic.

Shipping/Delivery: After I sent in my order, it was shipped the next day! I was super impressed with how fast it was processed. I received my package in less than 5 days. It didn't come inside a box like I expected, but inside of an air bag package. However, the sunglasses were already inside the case that it comes with so nothing was broken or bent. The package arrived safely and perfectly intact. 
Quality: This pair was retailed at $44.90. The quality of the product surprised me. It's lightweight, but still durable. It's definitely not as flimsy as my cheap $10 sunglasses, but I wouldn't say it's as sturdy as some of the higher end designers sunglasses I've had. But even so, it has put up with quite a bit. I'm not the type of person to carry around the sunglass case, so if I don't need them right away, I'll just toss them into my purse. It's a terrible habit because my purse is filled with loads of crap and things get lost or broken in there. Mirrors, sunglasses, makeup, and headbands are just a few of the things that ended up broken inside my bag. But these sunglasses have stayed intact this whole time. They've gotten a few smudge prints on them, but that can easily be cleaned off. 
Customer Service: I am extremely satisfied with their customer service. Antonio was very prompt and fast with his responses. He was very professional and direct with his emails. If anything, I was the one that was late with my email responses and review! I definitely recommend them to everyone! And like I stated earlier, YOU CAN GET YOUR FIRST PAIR FREE HERE! :) You just can't beat FREE. If there are any questions or concerns, you can always email them at service@firmoo.com.
