GE Reveal Light Bulbs {Review & Giveaway}

Monday, January 27, 2014

Can you guys believe that today is already the last Monday in January? Seriously... where did it go? Today is a pretty big day here on the blog, because I'm hosting my first giveaway! "What is it for?" you ask? A $10 Target gift card and GE reveal® light bulbs! Pretty cool!
{*I received the GE Light Reveal Bulbs free of charge from GE Lighting, but was in no other way compensated for this post. Opinions below are 100% mine.*}
Enter to #win a $10 Target gift card and 4 Pack of GE reveal light bulbs from It's Always Ruetten!


When I was contacted by GE to review their new reveal light bubs I was really excited to try them out... specifically in my office at work. My office is windowless (yay... not), so I use a floor lamp with the cheapest of cheap light bulbs in it. Seriously, I'm talking the now-extinct incandescent bulbs - from the dollar store. 

So as soon as the new GE reveal® light bulbs came in the mail, I threw them (gently) in my bag and took them to work. The new light bulbs are actually halogen bulbs so they are energy efficient, but by design look more like the light bulbs of yesteryear and not like the curly compact florescent bulbs.

So the lights in my office; they were great! The light was markedly clearer (and whiter) than the orange-ish glow that was emanating from my office before. I even had no less than three co-workers remark on the difference. The only problem? The wattage wasn't bright enough to keep my office bright enough. So I moved my light bulbs back home and set them up in my living room lamps.

The one thing that is a pain about renting is that sometimes the lighting set up can be less than desirable. In my Albuquerque apartments, I have only had one overhead light and that was in my first apartment's bedroom. So I rely on lamps to make up for that. In my living room, I have three lamps that I run together to give my living space enough light. Check out the before and afters:


It really is a big difference; and I'm loving it! Since I spend about 90% of my time in my living (usually blogging, crafting, or watching TV) it is especially important the I have enough and clear lighting so that I'm not straining my eyes.

As you can (sort of?) see in my pictures, the GE reveal® lights are so much whiter. They are just an untainted light that really helps me to make sure that the colors I'm using in my craft projects are spot on.
