Product Review: Glade Expressions Collection

Hello everyone! Today I’m bringing you something new: a product review that isn’t about food or makeup! It’s a little different for the blog, but I’m branching out and wanted to do some other reviews for you guys.

Today I’m reviewing two products from the Glade Expressions Collection, the Oil Diffuser and Fragrance Mist.  I got both of these products for free through the BzzAgent program.  They sent me coupons to get these two products for free and I’m very happy that I get to share them with you.

First, I’ll review the Oil Diffuser.  In the past, I’ve had oil diffuser bottles with reeds in my house.  What I found was that the scents in the bottles last for a few weeks, but then you have to change out the sticks and the oil which can be pretty messy.  Also, it’s easy to accidentally knock the oil bottle over and make a huge mess.  I was happy to see that the Glade Expressions oil diffuser has a “no-spill” design.  I tested this out when I walked my completed oil diffuser upstairs to my room.  It didn’t make a mess at all, so I’m really pleased that this diffuser is portable and I’m happy to know that even if I do accidentally upset it, I won’t be cleaning oil out of my carpet.

Putting the oil diffuser together is really easy.  Inside the starter kit is your refillable holder, oil bottle and a scent card.

Simply take the oil bottle out of the holder and snap the scent card into the bottle until it clicks.  Then, place the bottle back inside the holder.  Set up literally takes 30 seconds.  You can immediately smell the fragrance coming out of your diffuser, and let me tell you, it is heavenly.

The Fuji Apple & Cardamom Spice fragrance was a good choice for me.  I love the scent of apples in the fall and I feel like it makes my home smell so warm and cozy.  Fuji Apple & Cardamom Spice smells like you’re baking an apple pie.  I love the fresh scent of the apples with the warm undertone of the cardamom.  I really recommend this scent if you’re a fan of apples.

I also picked up the Glade Expressions Fragrance Mist in Pineapple & Mangosteen.

This product is also really easy to assemble.  The starter kit comes already assembled, but I took it apart to see how it works, and also to show you guys.

You just take off the starter kit label, unscrew the bottom of the holder and tap the holder with your palm to release the fragrance refill.

When you need to refill your holder, just remove the top of the refill, insert it into the holder and screw the bottom of the holder on.  This product also takes about 30 seconds to assemble.  It’s very user-friendly.

Completed Fragrance Mist

To spray the fragrance, you just squeeze the sides at the top of the holder and a nice mist comes out.  I sprayed the fragrance all over my room and was delighted at how it eliminated odors (I have pets and they tend to have accidents on my carpet, leaving a musty smell in my room).  The fragrance was really bold for about 15 minutes and my room still smells very pleasant.  Compared to my usual Febreeze, the Glade Fragrance Mist does a better job at eliminating odors.  Also, the holder is pretty stylish.

The Pineapple & Mangosteen fragrance is very tropical and reminds me of the beach.  It was a great choice for such a dreary day! Once I sprayed it I immediately thought of a bright, sunny day on an island (no kidding).  The scent is really fresh and fruity and is perfect for someone who loves tropical fragrances.

Both the Oil Diffuser Starter Kit and the Fragrance Mist Starter Kit are reasonably priced.  Even though I had coupons to receive them for free, I noted the prices.  I purchased both products at Target, but they are also available at WalMart and some drug stores.  The Oil Diffuser was $5.99 and the Fragrance Mist was $2.99.  These prices are great for such quality fragrances.  I definitely recommend going to pick these up for your home.  You’ll be delighted with how warm and inviting your space will feel after using these products.

If you’d like to try either product, I have coupons for both! I have a $4.00 coupon for the Oil Diffuser Starter Kit and a $2.00 coupon for the Fragrance Mist Starter Kit.  I posted both coupons on my Facebook, but I can also mail you a coupon if you prefer.  Just let me know if you’d like a coupon, or if you’ve already tried these products in the comments.  Which scent is your favorite?
