Zenni Optical reached out to me and asked if I wanted to be a part of their new campaign focusing on how you can order and customize prescription glasses/sunglasses to your liking while being able to stay in a good budget (under $50).
This was PERFECT timing because my ophthalmologist told me I needed to start wearing prescription sunglasses everyday.
The sunglasses came, I loved them, they were PERFECT! I was wearing them daily. Couldn’t get enough of them.
Now IDK why I put off writing the post when I was so darn happy about the sunglasses, but I did. Karma came and I lost the sunglasses a few months later in Mexico. The upside of this is we now know that I like these sunglasses so much that I went ahead and purchased the replacement at full price so I could go back to wearing them daily.
So yes they were originally gifted, but clearly I love them or else I wouldn’t have bought them again myself!
Here’s what I ended up picking: I ordered the Premium Cat-Eye Sunglasses 112021 Black, with the 1.57 Mid-Index Lens, standard tint Gray 80%, and Super Hydrophobic Anti-Reflective Coating. Final price before shipping $49.85.
I was looking for an all black over sized cat-eye style because I love how chic and classic it looks. Since these are “premium sunglasses” and I chose a classic style I’m hoping to wear them for quite a while!
I wanted them large and the tint as dark as possible for those days when I do’t feel like wearing makeup so I can hide behind them and pretend I’m a celeb. I also feel like they give me more sun protection that way and I’m always trying to protect myself from the sun as much as humanely possible.

How to Keep Glasses Clean
I chose the super hydrophobic anti-reflective coating because dirty glasses are the bane of my existence and drive me crazy!
Glasses Tip: I clean mine with dish soap and water to get all of my makeup, oil, and fingerprints off of my glasses and sunglasses.
When they arrived and I tried them on for the first time I was immediately in love. Isn’t putting on a brand new pair of glasses the best? You don’t even realize how poorly you were seeing without them!
Zenni Sunglasses Case
I love that these come with a case so I can’t crush them in my purse. They also seem very sturdy so I think they are going to work for a long time for me. Another thing I love about them is how light they are in my purse!
