Better Vision in Style

[Disclosure: This is a sponsored post. I received the product for a review purpose, but the opinions are my own based on my experience.]

Hi sweet bumblebees! Yeeeees, so I'm back from Seoul, and it's great to be home reuniting with Jakarta's warmth. The trip was totally fun, I got snow, rain, plus loads of cosmetics. HA! Although I'm not gonna update a haul post because I tried to take a photo of it but the result sucked, a review of each interesting product will be coming up soon, for sure ;)

Anyway, this time I'm going to review circle lenses. It's been awhile since my last post about circle lens, right? I received a package from Ohmylens.com when I was away. I picked toric circle lenses as I have astigmatism on both of my eyes.

I have never once worn toric lenses before, nor I understand how to differ them from the regular ones. However, I did quite a research and finally understood how this lens works. On the site, they have many pretty design of toric lenses, even so at the end I picked gray colored lenses with the smallest diameter which is 14 mm because I love how natural this kind of lens will look like on my eyes.

All of toric lenses on Ohmylens.com are made to your prescription so that's why you will see handwritten on the bottle or the cap. For Neo Vision's toric lenses, the bottle sticker's default is axis 180, but if it's not 180, it will be handwritten by the manufacturer.

All made to your prescription.

Well, just one thing that bothers me, I'm not sure what are these lenses made of, I couldn't find it on their website too. I even looked it up on the Neo Vision's site, yet I still didn't get a clue.

Specification of Neo Vision Ahene 3 Color Toric:
Power Range: 0.00 ∼ -10.00
Diameter: 14.0mm
Base Curve: 8.6mm
Water Content: 42%
Lifespan: 1 year disposal

Design: 5 out of 5
The 3 tones design makes this lens looks gentle and since I picked the 14 mm diameter it certainly suits my small eyes. The green part looks more vivid in real life and somehow it doesn't look too fake. Instead, it shows a liveliness.

Enlargement: 5 out of 5
I wasn't expecting any enlargement to be honest with such diameter. To my surprise, the limbal ring of this lens enable enlargement in the most natural way.

Comfort: 3.5 out of 5
It will get dry in about around 4 hours, so I definitely need to use my eyedrops once in a while. Toric lens also feels a bit different from the regular ones, mine is flatter on the center and sort of stiff.

Overall: My first impression of toric lenses was just so good. Who knows we who suffer astigmatism now can wear circle lens too? I'm thankful that my astigmatism is considered mild so that's why I can still wear the regular lenses until now. Still, this kind of lens will be exceptionally useful for those who have severe astigmatism, but at the same time want to wear circle lenses and have better vision too.

Price: USD 60 per pair

What I really like more about the service from Ohmylens.com is the convenience about your order details from their website! They are considerate to give such a guide on how to open the bottle (even if you make a mistake, there's a solution on the guide) and of course, how to take care of the lenses.

A very helpful guide indeed!

Last but not least, if you shop for more than USD 120, they will send your order by EMS (the fastest shipping method) with no charge! That's quite an interesting deal if you want to buy another pair of these toric lenses just in case.

Korean Beauty Wish List

Saturday, February 14, 2015
Anyong dear bumblebees! I am so especially excited for February, a.k.a the month of love I suppose! The reason is..... *drumrolls* I'll be flying to Seoul in just a few days! Well, the thing is, I kinda picked a wrong date to travel because with lunar new year just around the corner, I heard some of the shops will close earlier. But... Please don't... According to the itinerary, I'm going to visit Yeoju Premium Outlets on the 19th (It's THE day), I love outlet shopping ya know, it saves a lot of money.

And then on the 20th, it's the cosmetic shopping's turn. I asked Filia if the shops would still open after Seollal, and she said the chances major stores open are bigger, but such place like Myeongdong would be less packed than usual. What a relief, right? Honestly I don't like the idea of shopping in a crowded place, so if there will be less people, it doesn't sound so bad then. Just as long as all the cosmetic shops are open! LOL.

Omona~ I can't waiiit~!

So here I created little collages of things I've been wanting to buy, I guess there would be a lot of unexpected purchases (I'm just that impulsive, fyi). It's okay anyway to spend more money when you travel overseas :P
