This post is a little late but I wanted to really test it before writing my review. Test what? My First Circle Lenses of course!! I'm was so excited to get them, you can't imagine! :D
Let's see what was in the little box from Shoppingholics
Let's agree that the main word in this post will be cute and move on, ok? Because look at these! They are all so cute! Even the little plastic bag has "because I want to see your face with a smile" written on it!
- these pink plastic thingies on the top left corner are like hair clips, they stick to your hair and keep it out of your face while you are putting on make up or contact lenses. And they are cool for straight hair because they keep it straight, no so cool for curls though, they can get tangly.
- on the top right corner you can see the tiny uber cute card they included! Awww!
- bottom left corner is the -again- super cute animal lenses case and
- on the bottom right corner you can see the actual lenses. In a cute jewelery box with bow!
DetailsDiameter : 14.5mm
Water Content : 38%
Base Curve : 8.6mm
Life Span : 1 year disposal
These lenses are supposed to be bigger than regular lenses and I was a little worried if they'd be too big. So I compared them to my regular lenses which are the Ciba Vision Air Optix Aqua
Water Content : 33%
Base Curve : 8.6mm
Life Span : 1 month disposal
Not that bad, right? Indeed, they fit me great.
ColourA you can see in the photo, it's a black ring on the outside part of the lenses which becomes dark grey, then light grey and clear in the middle. Your actual eye colour will be visible which is why I believe this colour looks better with dark eyes. Here are some photos in natural and artificial light.
I tried to look Asian cute but failed LOL!
ComfortableYou are not supposed to wear these lenses daily for many hours. But I did. What? I had to test them! And I was out of my regular lenses -_- So I was wearing them for 7 hours daily for about a week. They didn't cause me any problems but after 7 hours I wanted to remove them.
These lenses last up to 1 year. I had tried 2-year lenses in the past and they were thick and stiff so I was expecting these to be too. But they are not. They are the same as monthly lenses.
Lenses SolutionAs you can see when you buy the lenses you get a lens case for free but no lenses solution. You can actually use any regular lenses solution, I emailed people at Shoppingholics asking if I can use my BioTrue and they said it's great.
NoteIf this is the first time you are using contacts, you may experience some difficulties and discomfort. This is normal of course, everyone has difficulties at first. I've been using contact for about 10 years now (maybe more, OMG, how much money I've paid!) so feel free to ask me anything, I'll be happy to help :)
Also keep in mind that these lenses are made in Asia so I'm not sure if they have passed the European and American lenses tests and stuff. It's basically what it is with all Asian products, use at your own risk.
My opinionI really like them and I'd recommend them. I actually plan on buying one more couple of circle lenses in purple colour, I've always wanted to try purple contacts! If you find yourself browsing the webpage, feel free to recommend me a purple pair of lenses ^-^
