LED Lighting from AglaiaDirect

Standard

I love LED lighting. Be it solar, decorative, holiday, security, or regular indoor house lighting. It is leaps and bounds better then compact fluorescents. Compact fluorescents have powdered mercury in them. You cannot legally throw them away in your trash, and if broken, you actually have a hazardous situation on hand. My son broke one once in his room, goofing around. What a nightmare. You can’t vacuum it up, it goes airborne. Everything has to be done right. It was a good week, if not longer, before he was allowed o go back into his room. They even emit radiation. You can hold a Geiger counter up to one and will pick up a reading; very scary indeed. I still can’t believe that I put them in my kids’ rooms. So, as LEDs emerged on to the market, we were all scared off by the insanely high price. Now that more companies are involved in their production, the price on LED products, has come way down. They are so affordable now, and save you so much on your electric bill. I was shocked to see the difference, but I love it.

I was sent two lights to review from AglaiaDirect. Two LED lights. One is a clip-on task oriented, work light, and the other is a desk lamp. Both lights arrived nicely packaged, and in great working order. I was pleased to see that neither of the lights had any imperfections to them.

The desk lamp, Aglaia LT-T16 LED Rechargeable Desk Lamp, is a 3W lamp. It is definitely a must have to have in home, if only for an emergency too. It is a rechargeable lamp, with an internal 1000mAh battery. If your power goes out, this light will still work for you. It has three settings: low, medium, and high. The touch sensor, to operate it, is on the base of the lamp. First touch brings I on in low, the second moves it to medium, and the third ouch to the high setting. The fourth touch turns it off. I love how the light holds its charge, and can be used unattached from its USB power cord that is included. The one negative is that they did not include an adapter with this product. You can bring this light anywhere to work, and I really love that flexibility. The light can barely be adjusted to its side, but can really be adjusted in the up and down motions. The LED covering is frosted, so this light is very eye friendly. It emits a cool white light, rated 5500 – 6000K. I am not too fond of the cool white light in home. It can be too stark, and remind me of morgue lighting, lol. Since It has the nice covering over the LEDs, the light is actually user friendly. The bottom of this lamp has a soft, foam like material. It stays put pretty well, and won’t mar your furniture. There are actually 20 LEDs in this lamp, with a max output of 220 lumens. Up close and personal, as a able lamp, 220 lumens is quite bright. The average height of this lamp, with the neck bent over, is 13” tall. If you place the neck of the lamp straight up and down, then its’ max height is 18” tall. It’s a very usable size.

The Aglaia LED Desk Lamp with Clamp, is a 4W lamp. Another energy saver. My husband and older son are both commercial electricians and carpenters, wood workers. Having a work light is always needed. This is great task oriented lighting. The base of the light is a clamp. It is a very sturdy clamp indeed, and holds in place perfectly. The clamp is a durable, thick metal, and the inside of the clamp is lined with a foam padding to help keep it from marring your furniture. This light requires a regular outlet to be used. The power cord is separate, but attaches to the part of the cord that is attached to the lamp. The cord has a built in on/off witch. The lamp is a touch lamp, for operation. If you turn it off on the switch on the cord, then touch will not activate it. This is great for people with pets, and or kids. When the light is turned on via the switch on the cord, there is a red ring that turns on, on the base. I like that touch, very sporty, and has a cool factor to it. This entire base is ouch sensitive, so you can ouch it at any point to turn the actual light on. The first touch turns it on low, the second touch turns it on in medium mode, and the third touch turns it on in high mode. The fourth touch then turns the light off. The entire casing of this light is metal, and durable; Aluminum and Iron to be exact. The neck is very flexible, and makes it so easy to direct the light to where you need it. The light given off on this lamp falls into the 4000-4500K color temperature range. It has a fine diffuser on it, and is actually pretty comfortable to work with. It’s still in the cool range, but warmer than the other lamp. MY light meter, about a foot away from the light, had this lamp at 5500 lux, on average. It did move around, and my hand moved. They do not give a specific lumen count for this light. I have not had any issues with the gooseneck failing on me. It has been holding pretty well in the positions I set it in. Overall, I really like how user friendly this light is, as well as the low energy usage of 4W. It does function really well as a task oriented work light.

Dress your nails with this MelodySusie Gel Nail Polish Set.

Standard

gel-nail-polish-set-3

Gel nail polish is all the rave. It is so easy to do at home now, with the large availability of UV Nail Dryers on the market. Gel nail polish, however, is still pricey. Most require you to use the at least the top coat to cure it, too. The first time I was sent a nail dryer to review, I went down to my local drug store to buy nail polish. I was shocked that a bottle was $15 plus tax. It was over $30 to buy a top coat and the polish. I could get my nails done for that price. So, I was overjoyed to find this product. It is an all in one Gel Nail Polish. No top coat, or base coat needed. I received the package of 6 different nail colors: MelodySusie Gel Nail Polish Set, Lux Classics. When I ordered mine for review, the price on the set was only $23.99 with prime shipping from Amazon. You really can’t beat that price. They do offer a set of 6 in different colors, as well as a base coat/top coat all in one, too. How ironic that they sell it, even though you do not need it for this nail polish to work. In this case, it will just prolong the life span of your nail polish on your nails. You can use an LED UV nail dryer too. That is what I am using now. The colors this set come with are:

Elegant Magenta

Emerald

Sapphire

Dark Orchid

Ruby Red

Black Pearl

These polishes are nontoxic as well. I am very happy to report that this nail polish does not have a strong odor at all. I was actually very surprised at how little odor there was. My 9 year old was in the room with me, and normally complains when I do my nails. He sat about 4 ft. from me, and never even looked up with this polish. Curing time depends on the type of dryer you use. If you use an UV lamp, and apply a thin coat, you can get away with approx. 1 minute under the lamp. If you use a LED UV lamp, then double that to two minutes. I always mess up my nails, so I did three minutes under my UV LED lamp, and that worked perfectly. Even after I did a 2nd coat. The colors are pretty true to the cap. I love the shine gel nail polish gives off. I do not notice a difference between the type that requires a top coat, and this one that does not. I really love the ease of this polish too. For the ease and the price of this gel nail polish, I am surely impressed. I have no complaints.
