I was contacted to do a collaboration with Firmoo months ago but there was a glitch on my end. USPS lost my package and was sent a new pair of sunglasses right away. I'm supposed to do a review about a month ago, however, I've experienced some technical difficulties with my blog.
Firmoo is an online optical store and also the world's most popular online eyeglasses store. They offer over 300 styles of affordable and stylish frames for you to choose from. They also offer a Virtual Try-On system where you can upload a photo of your own and try their glasses/sunglasses virtually.
Firmoo has launched a program offering free eye wear for first-time buyers. It's an excellent way to try their products and to check its quality. This offer is open to almost all countries in the world including the U.S., Canada, Australia, etc. You can read more about this offer here.
Here's my unbiased review:
I give it a 3.95 star rating.
The sunglasses that was sent to me (for which I chose) is the #OTO2581 model. ($40) Now, currently unavailable.
~ Customer Service is superb! USPS lost the first pair of sunglasses that Firmoo sent me and I notified them immediately of the situation and they shipped a new pair right away.
~They do indeed offer a variety of different styles for eyeglasses.
~Delivery was fast.
~I love the quality of the pouch that's included.
~ I love how they offer free eye-wear for first-time buyers.
~ They also included extra screws and a mini screwdriver for the sunglasses that was sent to me.
~The Virtual Try-On System helped a lot for the type of sunglasses that fits me.
~ I was limited to a number of sunglasses to choose from (the second time). The first sunglasses that I picked was the one USPS lost. I picked this one because there were only 3 available styles to choose from. I didn't like the other two, so I finally chose this one. There used to have more than 8 styles to choose from, however, it was unavailable at that time.
~ The sunglasses I received has a dent. How unlucky of me! (refer to picture) I wouldn't pay $40 for it to be honest.
~The website is a little confusing to navigate to find their sunglasses. It seems like it only really caters for eyeglasses but not enough variety for fashion sunglasses.
~ This particular sunglasses that I chose is being phased out by the manufacturer/designer. See here. So I guess there is no way for the others to get a hold of this product.
I am glad that I get to have a collaboration with Firmoo to review their product. This was a great opportunity for me to work with them.
I strongly suggest to try their free eyewear for first-time buyers program to try their products before purchasing.
