Hey darlings, I hope you have all had a lovely week so far?
Today's post is something a little different, but something I wanted to mention as you know I love to save you guys money if I find a good deal! So the other day I was talking about contact lenses to some of my family members, and it came up in conversation about Lenstore. I discovered Lenstore about 3 or 4 years ago and have been getting my contact lenses from there ever since! It got me thinking that I should definitely share it with you all!
A little background about my eyes...
I am unfortunately VERY short sighted. To give you an example, if I have my laptop on my lap it's completely blurry without my glasses or contact lenses... So I am always wearing either glasses or contacts.
Finding the right contacts lenses...
Many years back I used to buy monthly lenses which were great in terms of being cost effective. But I had my fair share of problems with those, getting eye infections and a lot of discomfort after wearing the lenses a few times. Admittedly it may have been I wasn't looking after them well enough or something along those lines but I did feel I did everything I was supposed to with them.
After that I tried 2 weeklies then moved on to daily disposable lenses which I really loved, I personally found them the most comfortable and hygienic of any lenses i'd tried. The only downfall with daily lenses was the cost. To have enough pairs for every day of the month was really expensive from the highstreet opticians! That's when I started to do research and came across Lenstore. If you are a contact lens wearer you will probably recognise a lot of the brands on the Lenstore website, my personal favs are the 'Focus Dailies All Day Comfort' I have been buying these for years now and have never been let down. I often get itchy and dry eyes but find these don't irritate or make my eyes any worse thankfully!
So why am I writing this and letting you know about Lenstore? Because the prices of the contact lenses on the Lenstore website are SO good that I really think that everyone who wears contacts should know about it! For 30 daily disposable lenses it comes to £14.65 which I think is such a bargain... I believe this is less than half the price I was paying before from a highstreet branch of opticians.
For those of us who need glasses/contacts it's so frustrating having to pay out so much money on an on-going basis so I really believe it's important to share finds like this. Of course I'm not saying you should just go for the cheapest option over quality BUT if you can find the same brand and quality for a better price then that's perfect right?!
This isn't something I had thought of mentioning before as it's just something I have been buying for years and didn't really think anything about it. But after hearing how much friends were spending on their contact lenses I thought it was definitely worth sharing! Of course I wanted to get the best deal for all of you lovely people who read my blogs so I decided to contact Lenstore to let them know I would be sharing this post.
To which they kindly gave me a discount code 'RACHIE10' for you all to use if you need any contact lenses. This will give you 10% off your order, all you will need is an up to date contact lens prescription where relevant!
I really hope this post was helpful and saves you some money if you wear contacts and don't already get them from Lenstore. If you have any other recommendations please do let me know!
