Please note: I received this product for free in exchange for my honest review. All opinions on this blog are of my own person, 100% thoughts and feelings.
I was especially excited to be picked to review the Honeywell Cool Mist Humidifier because it really couldn’t have happened at a better time! Allergies are always a problem for me and always have been. However, when I moved from Ohio to North Carolina, I noticed that my allergies went into overdrive around this time. They seriously got like ten times worse.
But never mind allergies. I live in the western part of North Carolina, which is also known as our states “mountain region”. About two weeks ago, my area was impacted by a massive forest fire that blazed one of our mountains. Our whole town and multiple surrounding towns were covered in smoke for days.
Today, I woke up and heard on the news that Gatlinburg Tennessee is on fire. My thoughts are with the people and animals in that region. We visited Gatlinburg this past July and it’s a naturally beautiful area.
On Sunday, my family and I went out to eat for lunch. That is when I realized that my allergies were going haywire. I developed a painful crack inside of my left nostril from extreme dryness. As the crack split my skin, my eyes watered profusely and I told my husband that my nose just cracked. My five year old son told me that my nose looked normal to him. 🙂
But it hurt. It always hurts when that happens. When I went home, I had a massive headache on the back of the left side of my head. Again, typical allergy-related response for myself.
I took an over-the-counter allergy pill and went to bed….for the rest of the day!
When I woke up, I realized that now may be the best time to try out this Honeywell Cool Mist Humidifier that I was honorably chosen to review.
Setting it up way a cinch. If I can do it, anyone can. I followed the direction and had my mist coming out within 5 minutes. Piece of cake!
I set it on the “high setting” and placed it on a table in our living room. It has to go on a table at my house because I have a 10-month old baby that is well into her “exploring” stage of development. Also, I think we spend the most time in the living room and figured it would be the best spot.
I left it on for 5 consecutive hours and noticed a difference within that timeframe. My nose was actually running– yay! No more dry, cracked noses. I felt like my normal self. I no longer had a sinus headache either.
The sound of the Honeywell Cool Mist Humidifier is faint but audible. I actually enjoy the sound it provides because it’s soothing to me. However, this is coming from someone who has slept with a fan running for the last 16 years of her life. I “have” to have noise from a machine in order to be put at ease.
