Novia Cat Eye Glasses | Review & Voucher Code

* were kind enough to send me glasses for review purposes however, all opinions in this post are my own

I've worn glasses full time for just over 3 years and I've always stuck to the same shape and colour of frames... standard black and slightly curved. When reached out to me, offering eyeglasses in return for a review, I used the opportunity to branch out with my style choice and I'm really impressed with the frames that I received. is an online glasses store hosting thousands of pairs of glasses frames and prescription sunglasses. At first, I was quite sceptical about ordering glasses online as I wouldn't normally consider ordering glasses on the internet without trying them on first. Thankfully, gives the option for you to 'try on' the glasses by uploading a digital photo of yourself to the website and the frames chosen will be placed on your photo. Seems a little bit gimmicky, but it did help in the initial stages of crossing a few potential frames off my list.

In addition, all glasses frames on the website contain measurement details. I used my current frame measurements and compared them with the frames I was considering to make sure I wasn't unexpectedly surprised when they arrived in the post. 

I opted for a pair of Novia Cat Eye Glasses in Tortoise. I always play it safe with glasses and never drift far from a traditional black pair, but I'm really glad I branched out and tried a slightly different design and colour to what I'm used to.

The glasses arrived in a clear plastic case with a glasses cloth. The frames are really sturdy and I'm really impressed with the high quality taking into account these frames retail for just $19.95 (around £16). 

In addition, if you use the discount code GSHOT50 at the checkout, will discount 50% off your chosen glasses/sunglasses (sale items excluded).

The only causes for concern I would raise is the shipping time. My glasses were shipped from China, so they took a bit over 2 weeks to arrive. Also, if you are interested in ordering from, make sure you check out the returns policy before ordering as there are a lot of conditions such as the 50% restocking fee and the exclusion of sunglasses and designer frames in their return policy.

Overall, I'm extremely pleased with the glasses I received from and I'm already looking at ordering the same pair in black. Although I was a little bit apprehensive about ordering frames online, I will definitely be more confident in doing so again in the future.

  3. Are you looking for natural eye care tips that work? Every year, millions of people are suffering from one eye discomfort to another, often the result of working long hours every single day. Maybe this is one drawback with the way our work life is changing, but that does not mean you are not entitled to better eye health.
