I was looking to try out the latest 1-Day Acuvue Define with Lacreon in is latest colours – Radiant Shine & Radiant Charm – to wear for my upcoming nuptials. I’m already a regular user of Acuvue Define, wearing shades in Natural Shine & Vivid Style, but the latest colours look like something that will make my eyes sparkle even more during the big day. Hence, I decided to get them, albeit last minute.
So I scoured online for good deals on them and I finally came across this Malaysian online shopping site MrLens.com.my which offers those contact lenses at a price cheaper than Singapore opticians. MrLens sells them at RM118/box of 30 lenses which is about SGD37.80/box. This is pretty much the price I used to pay when I drove into JB to purchase my contact lenses but now I can do it at the ease of home and get them delivered to my doorstep without the hassle of crossing the border! MrLens ships the lenses to Singapore via DHL Express, so it should reach me pretty quickly.
Speed of Delivery Test
I placed my order on 28 November, Monday at 9:45pm. The whole process is very straight forward and fuss-free. You just pick out the contact lenses that you want in your eye degree, add to cart, pay and wait for the delivery!
After my order is placed, you can opt for contact lenses re-purchase reminders so that you won’t forget that your contacts are running out amidst your busy schedule.
The very next day on 29 November, I received an email confirmation that the order has been received and is processing on their side.
On 30 November, I received another email that the package left their warehouse and is on the way to Singapore!
Very shortly after, I received an SMS from DHL stating that the package will be delivered the next day on 1 December.
DHL express service to Singapore is free when you purchase at least RM500(about SGD$160) worth of products from MrLens, otherwise the shipping fee is RM49.90.
I immediately tried on my new contacts and now I can’t decide which color to wear on my big day! What do you think?
Wearing Acuvue Radiant Charm
No Wait Time for Astigmatism Lenses
MrLens holds a wide variety of popular contact lens brands like Acuvue, Air Optix, Biomedics and Freshkon to name a few. I also placed an order of Acuvue dailies with Astigmatism for my hubby-to-be as he was too busy with work to head down to the optician to get new ones. Usually opticians don’t hold much stock for lenses with Astigmatism. We would have to order from them and wait 3-5 days before they phone you for collection and go back down to the optician to pick it up which can be quite a hassle (that’s why my hubby didn’t have time to replace his lenses and has been wearing spectacles instead).
This time, when I placed the order for his contacts, I expected to wait a while for the delivery as its with Astigmatism. So what really surprised me is that everything came together on Thursday morning which is much faster than getting them from the optician itself.
