Review: Nectar Sunglasses

Man oh man am I EX.CI.TED. about this post. I had the privilege of reviewing the NEW aviator polarized Desperado by Nectar Sunglasses. Now, why am I reviewing a pair of sunglasses on a yoga blog. Simple. To me yoga is about finding balance and harmony with yourself and your body. Through that you also learn to respect and nurture it. That is where your eye sight comes in. You only have two eyes people, TWO! So you need to take care of them. I have always been a HUGE advocate of sunglasses and how they protect your eyes from harmful UVA and UVB rays. Not only do they slow down cataracts and macular degeneration, it also is a good way to prevent skin cancer in the area.

So, why polarized? Polarized lenses help to reduce that super annoying glare that can happen as a reflection off an object when driving or doing everyday outdoor activities. This in turn reduces the strain in your eyes. The only problem? Most good polarized lenses cost upwards of $150. I know, I own a pair of polarized Ray-Ban lenses. But having an 18 month old who likes to play treasure chest with mommy's purse makes the idea of spending so much on something that will inevitably get scratched up, impossible. So, I was super stoked when my Nectars came in the mail.

Now let me tell you, I was skeptical to say the least. HOW could $30 lenses do the same job as my $180 pair? Well, I did the side by side test, besides being way thinner no real difference. I did the driving test, no difference.  I did the walking outdoors in the CRAZY SUNNY parking lot, they didn't work as well as my Ray Bans usually do, but then again, they are only $30!! I did the wearing outdoors while teaching a yoga class, BIG difference. What was the difference? The Nectars weigh like 1/3 of the weight as the Ray-Bans which means they are SO much more comfortable on the bridge of my nose.

So, there you have it. Would I recommend these babies? YOU BET! Do I plan on getting another pair? If/when the ones they sent me to review break I sure will!! In fact I might have to sooner because hubby really likes them. The downside to having unisex ANYTHING in my household is that chances are you wont get to keep it because the other person tends to take-over (yeah I'm guilty of it too!)

Want the best part? They sent me TWO free pairs to give to YOU! So, I am raffling off one pair here and one pair will be raffled off in my SUPER HUGE YOGA MONTH GIVEAWAY to be announced SOON!!

  7. The process of making sunglasses and glasses accessory has come a long way from when Roman Emperor Nero held polished light emerald glass gems up to his eyes and Chinese attached ceramic weights to the ends of ribbons draped over the ears in order to keep on their cool sunglasses.
