Hey bumblebee, this month I tried something different and ordered my contacts online! I was super excited to see the $1 offer and had just run out of contacts so I thought, why not? (Shout out to Instagram ads for coming to the rescue, am I right?) Well, here’s what I thought after spending a month with my $1 Hubble Contacts.
Considering I spent $1 on these, I wasn’t expecting much. Good thing too cause you know what they say; no expectations, no disappointments. I planned on canceling my subscription after seeing the $36 monthly fee plus $3 shipping and since popping the first pair in, I knew I made the right decision.
When they arrived a week after I placed the order, I was ecstatic. Free and fast shipping? Yes, please! The packaging is adorable and I dig the easy to store boxes they come in however the actual contacts weren’t the best.
Considering Acuvue Oasys (who also offers a free trial!) has spoiled me since I was 14 years old, I felt my special eyes just needed more love than Hubble’s contacts were giving. The harder, plastic feel of the contacts initially made me nervous to even insert them into my eyes however, once I recalled contacts were initially made out of glass I stopped stressing.
Having daily contacts for one month was enjoyable as I didn’t need to use contact solution and it kept me from second-guessing days I wanted to rock my glasses. Unfortunately, those were the only two things I actually enjoyed about my contact experience with Hubble.
Would I buy this product again? No. For $1 back-up contacts (yes I kept a few pairs stashed away just in case) they weren’t the worst however I won’t be budgeting $40 a month for the convenience of saving on contact solution and having them appear one my door step.
While it was exciting to try something new, Hubble Contacts just wasn’t it for me.
Do you wear contacts or glasses?
