Gettin' Fresh with Glade Expressions!

Hey all you lovely bloggers! I've got another fun product review for you all today. This one comes from our friends at Glade. I was lucky enough to be able to try out their new line of Glade Expressions with a starter kit of the Glade Expressions Oil Diffuser (pictured below right) and a starter kit of the Glade Expressions Fragrance Mist (pictured below, left).*

Let's start with the Glade Expressions Oil Diffuser Starter Kit:

First of all, the packaging is as beautiful as the diffuser itself is. It is modern, colorful, and inviting. It would certainly be a product that I would want to check out anyway. Unfortunately, of all the stores in my area I visited trying to grab one of these, there was only one store with one "flavor" option to choose from.

I'm not sure if this was due to their newness or if they're on the way out already but I ended up with the Pineapple Mangosteen scent. However, other scents available are: Cotton & Italian Mandarin, Fugi Apple & Cardamom Spice (which I am dying to try!!), and Lavender & Juniper Berry. When I got home, set up was super easy. Seriously, like one click and you're ready to go. The Pineapple Mangosteen scent started coming through right away so I tucked the diffuser off into my studio to let it get to work.

So pretty up there with all my fabric and notions!

A few hours later, I came in to find my whole studio was filled with a heavenly scent of pineapple and mangosteen. I LOVED it!! Over the course of the next couple of days, I was pleasantly surprised every time I popped in to my fruity fresh smelling studio.

I only give 3 stars for this one though, and that is due to the fact that the scent didn't stay very strong for very long. The first two days were amazing, but by now (4-5 days later) I can't smell anything unless I put the diffuser up to my face. So, that was disappointing. There's still plenty of fluid in the refill, and it still smells great up close but I wish I could smell it throughout the room like I could at first. My studio is a small-ish room that stays closed off so I would expect something like this to be noticeable every time I come in. Oh well! It was really nice while it lasted, and I do hope to check out some of the other scent options when this one runs out.

I also had the opportunity with this campaign to try out the new Glade Expressions Fragrance Mist. When I went to pick up my Fragrance Mist starter kit there was only one scent in stock, the Cotton & Italian Mandarin, so I grabbed that one and hurried home to check it out. However, this one also comes in Pineapple Mangosteen, Fugi Apple & Cardamom Spice (which I am dying to try!!), and Lavender & Juniper Berry.

The packaging, or starter kit container, is very pretty. I particularly like the fact that you can easily remove the label to leave the curvaceous mister sleek, white, and perfectly lovely for leaving out in plain sight. After unwrapping it, I immediately took it apart to get familiar with the refill process. (This might just be my favorite part!) All you have to do is unscrew the bottom, pull out the empty can, insert the new can, and screw the bottom back on. It's so easy, and you never have to purchase another mister even if you decide to switch fragrances. (unless of course you need an extra for another room!)

The sleek design of the mister is easy to squeeze, and produced a very fine mist perfect for spraying in any room. I absolutely love the Cotton & Italian Mandarin fragrance. It's fresh like clean laundry with just a hint of fruity citrus to make the whole room smell clean and fresh. The scent itself seems to linger nicely as well, for much longer than other room sprays I have tried in the past. That feature is especially nice when you live with stinky boys! haha!

I will definitely be using and purchasing these Glade Expressions products in the future, and would happily recommend them to anyone and everyone who likes to use this type of product. I hope that my local store restocks so I can try out the other scents as well!

I hope you all are having a wonderful week!!
