EOS Flower Series. The design on these lenses made to look like flower petals. A bit translucent in towards the middle but shows some brightness closer ot the edge.

Directions of Use
(No instructions provided by the Company)
I usually like to soak my lenses in my regular contact lens solution for at least 48 hours. The solution in the vials are usually formulated for storage so it may be harmful for your eyes. After 48 hrs, I try to wear it 1-2 hrs at home just in case I encounter problems. This is especially important if you drive. (just an example)

Main Ingredients
(No Ingredients were provided by the Company)

Price:
$20.00 USD on Kiwiberry1
+ Shipping $7 USD for USA/Canada, and $10USD for International.
I believe it used to be $5 but once again, this probably changed because last time I checked was in June 2010.

Kiwiberry1 almost always have discounts and promotions. Be sure to check them out when you plan to order your lenses to save a few bucks! =)

Review on Lens:
The Flower Pink are my second pair of pink lenses from EOS. I love the design of these lenses, they are like pink sakura flowers. They are so beautiful!!! I noticed that these lenses help my eyes appear brighter and have a crystalline effect! The pink flower design is not very opaque on dark brown eyes in indoor lights. I like my lenses very opaque and obvious especially when it comes to pretty designs as such, but these lenses only gives me such effect when I have super flash photography.

The enlargement factor is not significant at 14mm diameter. The lenses also have a brown ring which gives off a nice enlargement effect yet not too harsh compared to a black ring.  These lenses provides natural enlargement without being overly dramatic.

On comfort level, I find that it blurs my vision every now and then. I always soak my lenses in clean solution and yet the blurring still occurs. I have to blink a few times to get the blurring to go away. Also, it tends to slide a little bit. I noticed this as I saw that the pink was very evident on my whites. On durability, I can wear these lenses for 5-6 hours without feeling dry but I try not to wear these for any longer than that.

Customer Service:



I don't usually do timelines for my reviews on contact lenses but because this was a very different case.  This is a Semi-Sponsored Post , where I was provided the lenses for free and I paid for the shipping fee. I initially wanted these lenses for my birthday (October) and knowing the disadvantages of having a high rx, I usually plan early like in June (this is when Kiwiberry1 and I were in contact). The timeline shows all the details that has happened during this transaction; I went back to all the emails to summarize what has happened and get the dates right.
On September 22, 2010 (3 Months), they arrived however they were defective. The staff were kind and replaced them for me. More complications occurred and finally on December 3rd, 2010, I finally received my 2 pairs of non-defective lenses. This is no doubt the longest wait and most complicated process I had to go through for circle lenses. Kiwiberry1 informed me that this is their longest transaction yet and this hasn't occurred before. (This, I have no comment on since I don't know but as readers, this is your judgement. However, I do want to make sure for readers to understand that I don't think this sort of situation occurs to every customer)

Pros:
  • I love the constant updates, as a customer, we all want to know what's going on.
  • I liked how they resolved my problem when I had received defective lenses and replaced them for me
  • I liked how the company takes the responsibility when problem arises, and they offered a pair free complimentary lenses for all customer who were in that same batch.
  • The communication has always been timely and respectful. Even when my tone in emails became serious and stated my review will be honest and will state every detail (meaning all the problems/cons that occured) The staff was still very genuine. Please see excepts from emails below.

Cons:
  • Pre-orders means a long wait. EOS manufacturer sent off two separate packages which wasn't Kiwiberry1's fault but it's a disadvantage to pre-orders. (making it worse by waiting longer)
  • I am a little skeptical about the part when the Manufacturers said they dont make particular Hana lenses at rx because I felt that Kiwiberry1 should present accurate info when customers chooses their lenses instead of finding out afterwards (another 2 weeks wait). Do Manufactures actually provide inaccurate info to their retailers (Kiwiberry1)? I'm not sure. I was very upset with the entire transaction at this point. 

Overall on Lenses: ♥♥♥♥ 
Product: 4/5 ♥  Beautiful Design, not enough colour payoff and blurs my vision slightly
Packaging: 5/5 ♥ Nothing was broken when received. It was packed with bubble wrapped packaging.
Price: 5/5 ♥ I think that Kiwiberry1's prices are reasonable because they are at par with market and they almost always have promotions. So do check them out to see what deal suits you best =)
