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 my liking but definitely usable. Overall, a nice product.

I always had problems skimming my text books after highlighting and with how light the colors are it's easy, even without erasing anything.
The colors are by no means dim though. They are colorful and attention getting but not bright and blinding. I love these highlighters and won't buy any hang else. :)

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.

I like these because they don't visually scream at my eyes. Like the rest of the Frixion highlighters, they are drier than traditional ones.

These are just okay. I'd just use the markers instead of buying these if I had to do it again

I love these highlighters. They make the text pop out, which is the POINT of highlighters, but they are much easier on the eyes for academics or translators like me who stare at highlighted pages for hours every day. They're just prettier, too, and don't soak through the way some highlighters can, even on cheap pages or thin diary-type pages. They'd probably even work in a Bible, but I haven't tested that myself.

Get them if you want a change of pace, need more colors for your taxonomies, or have weary eyes. VERY good pens.

Generally these highlighters have been nice, and it's nice to have the option to erase; however, the soft violet color is much lighter compared to the other 5 colors. It takes 3 passes to get a color with brightness even comparable to the other colors'. I have put them in the freezer to try and fix this, but with no results. I suspect it's just how the color is.
The highlighters also seem semi-opaque, leaving a sort of cloudiness over the ink it highlights. This cloudiness remains even after you erase the color, but it hasn't significantly affected the visibility of the writing it highlights. It might be an issue more with similarly soft-colored ink.

These are amazing! I love how they are subtle yet still noticeable within a textbook. And the erasing mechanism works perfectly.
