REVIEW: Eye Love Sunnies (& Giveaway)

A few weeks ago I received an email from Eye Love about doing a potential review for their company. Come to find out, I actually went to High School with the SeeEO (cute, right?!). I'm always up for trying out a new product, especially one that I have a connection with, but once I learned more about the company I was SOLD!

Living in the Southern California sun requires some sort of eyewear protection (or else you are squinting 95% of the day and ending up with massive headaches, not to mention wrinkles). If you follow me on social media then I'm sure you are well aware of my love for sunglasses (mostly because I'm not sure that hats were really made for my head... Strike that, reverse it). I have a bazillion and a half pairs of sunnies, so why not add another?!


But, you see, these sunnies aren't your average pair of sunglasses. They actually help provide an eye examination and glasses to someone in need. (Oh yeah, and they are polarized, have UV400 protection, are glare-eliminating and not just a cheap pair that I received as some race freebie.) So not only can you feel good about the pair of sunnies on your face, but you know you are getting a premium quality product.



I was sent a pair of the Women's Premium Designer Polarized Sunglasses - Brown Matte. Not only do you receive the sunnies, but there are a plethora of bonuses that arrive too. A hard case - stylish and functional? Yes please! A soft case - use the soft case if you feel like going smaller. A microfiber cleaning cloth - to keep your sunnies so fresh and so clean! And a screwdriver - allows you to tighten those screws to keep them feeling brand new.

Although these sunnies aren't for running, I have found plenty of other times to wear them around town. They are super cute (even if they may not have been a style I would have originally selected for myself), with a slightly over-sized round lens combined with sleek, slender temples.



Eye Love was started in May of 2015 with the ultimate goal being to build permanent clinics in areas that have no access to quality eye care. As active members of Great Shape, Inc, and more specifically the iCARE project, Drs. Jenna and Travis Zigler travel to Jamaica every year to give eye examinations and dispense eyeglasses. I LOVE Eye Love (even if they did go to the OSU College of Optometry)!

Only two pairs of sunglasses for me - and I am constantly losing them!

Brandi Gilbert said...

Can I plead the 5th on this? I have sunglasses everywhere because I hate to be without them (in my gym bag, in my car, in my purse, at my desk, etc).

Kelly Wu said...

I think I have 5 pairs now. I keep losing them, buying more, and then finding the old pair again. I always keep one pair in my every day bag so I'm never without.

I have one pair that I try to make multipurpose -- running, life, everything. It would be helpful to have more than one, and if I could make them last longer. Also, really cool to see this company's MO. Thanks for hosting.
