Maui Jim Sunglasses: A Review

I got my first pair of Maui Jim sunglasses recently. I have to say...they're FABULOUS! If being in love with your sunglasses is wrong, then I don't want to be right. 

Since I work for an optometrist I know the importance of wearing a good sunglass. You want something that blocks out the UV rays that can damage your eyes. Prolonged, unprotected exposure can cause premature cataracts and macular degeneration. Not fun. 

Here's what MJ has to say about their lenses:

The difference is impossible to miss. Put on a pair of Maui Jims and, instantly, glare is gone. UV that can damage eyes, gone. The world's true colors come shining through like never before. Bolder. Richer. Crisper. With more contrast and clarity. That's patented, color-infused PolarizedPlus2 Lens Technology at work in an optically correct, distortion-free lens. 

The pair that I have are called Baby Beach. They come in gold, silver and black. I chose gold because it matches my hair (they didn't have grey, that might have matched better). I've had other people try them on and they literally look good on everyone. Young and old. My 74 year old father and my 7 year old nephew both look great in them. 
"Are they expensive?" you ask. Why yes, they are.  "Are they worth it?" you ask. Hell, yes. They're worth every penny. Sunglasses are not just a fashion statement, they're also protecting your eyes. Plus, lots of people see you in them, so you want to look cool. 
Here are some friends and family that tried on the Baby Beach. I had a hard time getting them back from some of them.  

So stop wearing those $4 sunglasses from CVS and invest in a good pair of sunglasses. You totally deserve it! 

Disclosure: My wicked awesome Maui rep gave me a pair of Baby Beach. After I begged. And pleaded. All opinions are 100% my own. My opinions can't be bought yo.
