Review: Barbie Girls circle lenses from Jihoshop

Picture from Jihoshop's Ebay shop.
I've wanted a pair of circle lenses for a couple of years now, and now I finally got my chance at achieving that adorable, doll-eyed look that I've been envying on other girls!
 And boy, did I get what I paid for!
I ordered a pair of Barbie Girls Blue Eye-Cherry Blossom circle lenses from Jihoshop, and this was my experience as a circle lense newbie.

Jihoshop: 

I made my purchase from Jihoshop's ebay-shop about a week ago, and they shipped promptly! I made a mistake when making my purchase (I chose prescription -3.00 instead of -2.50), but they promised me that they would fix that for me. I didn't really expect them to remember, but they did, and to me that's a sign of great, personal service. The shipping was free, but I received a tracking number and they sent it as a recommended letter. I would have preferred if they didn't, but it was a nice gesture. 

I received them in a sealed envelope, in this cute little bag with a thank you note and a gold sticker (according to them the sticker is 24k! Wow.. I have my doubs). The pack was wrapped in plenty of bubblewrap and everything was OK.
All in all they deserve a top rating and I can't wait to empty my wallet into their pockets some more!

I tried the lenses on right out of the bottle (after washing them in some solution). The lenses does not have the distinct cherry blossom pattern that they do in the picture, but the color is a nice deep blue and they enlarge my eyes a lot! The color is not too unnatural, which was my main fear about circle lenses. They blend in really well with my dark brown eye color. They are not exactly comfortable, and they rely heavily on the moisture of my own eyes.
Even if they are not the most comfortable, I think I could wear them for a longer period of time if I just do not think about them too much- I don't really notice them when just walking around my house doing my thing. All in all, a nice product at a cheap price.
 Here is a picture of me wearing them. No make-up, and in natural light: 

How they feel:  ♠  (Not comfortable, but wearable!)
How they look:     (Great, but nothing like the product picture!)

In conclusion: I am pretty satisfied with my purchase, and I will probably be purchasing a pair of lenses (or 15) from them again!

Oh, and before I leave you I just wanted to let you guys know that..

  1. How long did you soak the lenses before after opening the bottle? It's generally recommended you soak them in lens solution for a few hours before wearing them, as they really need to have a chance to absorb the solution after sitting in the saline they are in when they come in the bottles :) Otherwise they'll dry out quickly (which isn't comfortable!) and the lens solution gently cleans any bacteria off the lens :)

    1. Yesterday I wore them all day, and they had been lying in solution all night, of course :) They're still not that comfortable. I don't know if it's a general "circle lense thing", but the edge of the lenses bother my eyes a bit.

  2. Choosing eye lenses sometimes turn out to be worst as you do not understand that which of the lenses not only go with your casual outfits but also suit your personality. Lacelle Contacts
