Maui Jim Sunglasses Review

Recently with the bad weather in the UK, I have been dreaming of sunnier climes. Doesn't the weather get you down when it's constant rain and wind? Well this week we have had sun! It's been great to see and hopefully this will be the start of a lovely spring. I am glad to see the sun as I was sent some Maui Jim sunglasses to review. 

Maui Jim is a premium sunglass company based in Lahaina Hawaii. 





Now the fastest growing premium polarised sunglass maker in the world, they saw a gap in the market for a brand that could combat intense glare and harmful UV while bringing the brilliant colours of the island to life. From this brand research, they created the revolutionary PolarizedPlus® lens - this colour-enhancing treatment to the lenses made with earth elements really make colours bright and vibrant. 

Every detail they say is crisper and cleaner without glare or harmful U.V. light. Of course that's really important as UV radiation, whether from natural sunlight or artificial UV rays, can damage the eye's surface tissues as well as the cornea and lens. Their PolarizedPlus®2 lens wipe out 100% of harmful UV light. 

So I was given a chance to review a pair of their sunglasses. It was a hard decision which style to choose as there are lots of cool and stylish designs on their website. I decided eventually on the Maile design. These sunglasses have an old-school glamour of yesteryear. Think Hollywood starlet, sightseeing in Rome or cocktails by the pool. I choose the black frames as I thought they would go with most things, and are suitably understated but still stylish.



 Maile Design Sunglasses


These sunglasses feature Maui Jim's newest and most advanced lenses, MauiPure™. Proprietary and exclusively found in Maui Jim sunglasses, MauiPure is the world's clearest non-glass lens material and has the added benefits of being ultra-light and extremely scratch- and impact-resistant. 



I think they look feminine and beautiful whilst still providing the utmost protection for the eyes. I was sceptical about the difference in colours but I did think colours looked enhanced and more vibrant. The gradient coating means it is darker at the top of the lens and slightly lighter at the bottom. They also have anti-corrosive springs and coating so perfect for that LA holiday, the beaches of West Wales or you could even get splashed by the Trevi Fountain and they would still be perfect!

  10. I love big sunglasses like this, you look great. I look ridiculous in big glasses...not fair!

  11. I've never actually heard of this brand before! I have a really narrow face (an optician once actually advised me to buy children's sized glasses because adult ones are just too broad for my face!) so usually I find it hard to buy frames that don't make me look like a bumble bee (especially as I love the big framed style). I love the fact you can filter the frames to show results that would suit a small face and the ones I like the most are Pikake, especially as they are green :)

    1. Yes they have a good filtering system it shows what type of face certain sunglasses suit.

  12. Oooh I like them!! I do love big sunglasses and these look like they've got the right balance of not being overly big. I'll keep an eye out for them (no pun intended) next time I treat myself to some new ones :-)
