Right after unpacking the highlighters, I had a bit of a scare!
Three of the pens had white nibs and the rest had extra faded ink! And no matter
how much I shake them and try to write with them they did not apply any color.
At first I thought they were dried out but the nib was wet with ink only it was
transparent. Then I remembered the fact that frixion ink fades with heat and can
be restored when subjected to extreme low heat (As per the description above).
So, I left the pens in the freezer, took them out after about 10 minutes, left
them to thaw then tried them again and they worked perfectly fine!
So, definitely be wary of that if you place your order during the summer ;)
After solving the problem, the highlighters are very delightful change from the
usual strong colors and they erase very well. The colors are still too faded for

These are by far the best highlighters I've ever owned. I use highlighters for a
lot of planning and outlining, so I like to have a good selection of colors, and
one of the biggest problems I have with most, is that once you get past yellow,
the other colors can get really dark and hard to read through. These soft colors
are a godsend, for real -- they're so subtle and so light, but it's still enough
color to make it pop on the page.
And the erasers actually work! I was a little skeptical about them at first, and
they weren't at all a major selling point for me, but of course, I had to try
them when they got here. And they erase the highlighter ink really easily! The
only thing is that you have to wait for the ink to completely dry, or else the
eraser might smudge it up a little.
I had an initial moment of worry when I first used one of the highlighters,
because the point felt dry and stiff, but that was just because it was brand
new, of course -- they work like a dream now. Really pleased with this purchase.
