Review and giveaway: Lookie Lous eyewear

Disclosure: I received this product to review for myself. I was not compensated in any other way and all opinions posted here are mine and mine alone. 

Even though I know I should wear sunglasses when I go out, so that my eyes are protected, I often forget.  And when I do remember, I am constantly getting tired of having something on my face and am pushing them up into my hair, which stretches out the glasses.  So I was really interested to hear about a new eyeglass/sunglass called Lookie Lous, which is actually designed to be worn as a headband, when not in use! Here's a bit about these glasses, from the Lookie Lous website.



Veterans of fashion and design, company founders Kelly and Kristie met 25 years ago while working in the Los Angeles garment district. Shortly after turning 40, they discovered that small print and misplaced reading glasses were becoming increasingly common nuisances for the both of them. Kelly remembered she had been wearing her daughter’s plastic hairband and kept mistaking it on her head for her readers… and the idea was born! lookie lous®  were literally developed in Kelly’s house. Prototypes were heated in her oven with late night Skype calls to Kristie at her dining room table. A breath of fresh innovation for a staid segment of the optics industry, lookie lous® are transparent, flexible, lightweight hairbands that rest on the head.

The kids had to get into the modeling too :)

Since I'm not quite at the stage where I need reading glasses, I received a pair with no magnification- just sunglasses.  When they arrived, I was quite surprised by the design- they don't look like any glasses I've ever seen before.  They took a little getting used to, but after I'd worn them for a while, they were actually quite comfortable, and super lightweight.  When I didn't have them on my face, they easily pushed up and served as a very nice and firm headband! I travel a lot, and these will definitely be going into my purse to use on my trips, since sunglasses and help with my hair are usually the top two things I need while traveling!

Lookie Lous are available in a variety of colors and magnifications- either 0.0, 1.0, 1.5 or 2.0. So if you're constantly misplacing your sunglasses or readers, check out Lookie Lous! They're a great solution to a common problem. 

And I have good news- one of you will win a pair of Lookie Lous in your choice of color/magnification.  Open to US mailing addresses, enter at the Rafflecopter widget below.
