My GE Reveal Bulb Experience

I got to experience the benefits of the GE Reveal Bulbs for myself in the past few days.  Perhaps you were able to hop onto my GE Reveal Bulb and Target Gift Card Giveaway a few weeks ago.  If you remember (or if you just jumped over to check it out), they were able to change the feel of the room with just a simple change of their light bulbs.

I have to admit I was a little skeptical that there could be a change without spending an arm and a leg - and we all know, unless you have had a big windfall (like winning the lottery)  nobody I know, including me has any extra money sitting around waiting to be spent on redecorating!

I thought I would do something a little different to test this bulb.  Here is the family "reading" chair in the middle of the day when the room is "flooded" with natural light.  It's also the TV chair and the comfy recliner that has put more people to sleep, it does look soft and comfy doesn't it?  .. but that's another story.

Here is a picture of that same chair in the late afternoon / early evening with a 60 watt soft white bulb.  Does it seem like the chair is sitting in a "hazy" living room?

And here we have that same chair with a 100 watt soft white bulb.  As you can see the chair itself is lit up more, but I think it is a much harsher light.  Now most of my lights have either 60 or 100 watt bulbs installed.  I've also never really "compared" the two bulbs in a given lamp, but it is kind of shocking to me, to see how "dull" or "harsh" the bulbs seem to make the area being lit.

And here is that same chair with the Reveal Bulb that I was provided with for this review.

The area that is lit up with this bulb, without appearing to be harshly lit is much larger than either the 60 or 100 watt bulbs.  I am thinking that this will make a great (ok greater) reading chair because the lighting will be easier on the eyes.

I also like that the bulb, although equivalent to a 75W incandescent bulb it only uses 53W (less than the 60 watt bulb I usually use in lamps).  It uses 28% LESS energy to give a cleaner light.  I am sold.  I will be looking for more of these bulbs for sure when I need to replace "blown out" bulbs (you know that never ending saga??).

If you are interested in checking these GE Reveal Bulbs out - and personally I think you DEFINITELY should, check out the Target’s Cartwheel app and get 25% off GE reveal® light bulbs.  Just search “GE reveal” to find it. This offer expires 2/28.
You can Download the Target Cartwheel app on your IOS or Android.  I know I will be checking mine every time I'm looking for something that Target carries (which seems to be everything right?)

I was provided with a FREE box of 4 Reveal Bulbs for my review, but the opinions stated here are mine alone, and not effected by the product provided.

I haven't tried them yet but printed a coupon and plan on it. I like that they use less energy.
