OSIM uMist Dream Ultrasonic Humidifier Review

OSIM uMist Dream Ultrasonic Humidifier Review

Make your home healthier and pleasant smelling with this portable ultrasonic humidifier that lasts up to 8 hours!

The OSIM uMist Dream is a delightfully small and compact yet efficient humidifier. I’ve been using the uMist Dream for about 2 weeks and I love it!

It features a large capacity water reservoir that is leak-proof and puffs out extremely fine mist thanks to the high-performance ultrasonic technology. Within a few minutes of use, you can feel the air becoming moister. I like that there is a rotatable nozzle which allows you to direct airflow to where you need it most without physically moving the machine.

Place the uMist Dream by your bedside table, office desk or your sanctuary to promote well-being and a sense of serenity! I love having the night light feature to create a relaxing mood in the room.

6 Benefits of a Humidifier

  • Prevent Dry Skin – the increase in humidity relieves itchy skin, chapped lips and dry eyes by restoring moisture.
  • Helps Prevent Snoring – added moisture to the air helps soothe the tissues at the back of your throat and nasal passage and helps you sleep more comfortably. Wake up feeling more refreshed and alert while you improve your sleep and well-being!
  • Allergy Relief hay fever and seasonal allergy sufferers tend to feel more comfortable with the increased humidity as it help soothes inflamed tissues in the nasal passages.
  • Prevents Influenza – Some study says that indoor humidity levels above 40% helps reduce the risk of catching the flu. Moisture prevents the moment of germs and it deactivates virus particles, making them less likely to be infectious.
  • Helps Your Home Feel Warmer – Did you know that when humidity levels increase your body tends to feel warmer? You can save money on your electricity bill and feel warmer by simply turning on a humidifier!
  • Happier Plants – Virtually all indoor household plants will thrive with increased moisture in the air.

Pros and Cons of the OSIM uMist Dream

PROS:

  • Ultrasonic technology sound wave energy to break up water into extremely fine mist to quickly add moisture to the air.
  • Rotatable nozzle to help direct the mist towards the direction where you need it moist
  • LED indicator prompts you for a refill when the water level is low
  • Promotes well-being and restores ideal humidity. Good for dry, air-conditioned or heated rooms.
  • Night light function
  • Leak-proof water reservoir.

CONS:

  • Not recommended use with essential oils
  • Hard to clean narrow reservoir.

If you are looking for a portable high-performance Ultrasonic humidifier, the uMist is an excellent choice. It is perfect for baby nursery, bedrooms and office space. It retails C$138. For more information, please visit osim.ca.

Stila Little White Lies Collection for Spring / Summer 2019

Stila Little White Lies Collection for Spring / Summer 2019

Efficacious and “melts” into your skin for a weightless, radiance-enhancing luminous glow.

Similar Jacket | Levi’s Jeans | YSL Camera Bag

Not too long ago I was invited to preview Stila’s Spring / Summer 2019 releases at Rosewood Hotel Georgia! My go-to eyeliner has always been Stila’s waterproof eyeliner, so I was extra excited to try the new products. The Little White Lies Collection is available and exclusive to Shoppers Drug Mart in Canada.

Lingerie Soufflé Skin Perfecting Foundation $49 CAD: This luxurious, multifunction foundation that delivers a rush of freshness to the skin. It is light and does not feel weighted. Available in 8 shades that range from fair to deep. The colours are fairly true and there is no oxidation seen with wear at the end of the day.

I normally would wear MAC studio fix fluid in shade NC20 (and NC25 in the summer) and Beige 20 in Chanel VITALUMIERE AQUA. Stila’s Lingerie Soufflé Skin Perfecting Foundation shade 2.0 suits me just perfectly!

After Hours Eyeshadow Palette $68 CAD: This warm sultry luxe eyeshadow palette comes with 12 velvety-soft shades in matte, shimmer, and cosmic-glitter finishes. It is free of parabens and phthalates. I love the deep pigments with superior blending and ultra-rich uniform colour that doesn’t streak or creases.

This palette contains 12 eyeshadows

  • Toast: Soft peachy nude glitter
  • Last Round: Taupe matte
  • Sunset Soirée: Burnt orange shimmer
  • Pink Bubbly: Baby pink shimmer
  • Velvet Rope: Pomegranate glitter
  • Cash Out: Vibrant green glitter
  • Bellini: Light peach shimmer
  • All Nighter: Deep chocolate matte
  • Bright Lights: Yellow gold glitter
  • Anything Goes: Espresso matte
  • Tomorrow’s Tale: Deep reddish-brown matte
  • After Party: Smoky quartz glitter
Stila Little White Lies Collection for Spring 2019

This Look: To create the eyeshadow look above, I used Last Round for a smokey base, Stila’s Glitter & Glow Liquid Eye Shadow Dollish and topped with Toast for a soft peachy shimmer touch. For the inner corners of my eyes, I used Bellini. Lined with Stila’s waterproof eyeliner. Using both Beauty Boss Lip Gloss in Synergy for both my cheeks and lips.

This summer, I’ve been loving this softer, warm smokey eyeshadow colour palette compared to my usual matte black and grey combination. It gives the effect of a nice sunkissed tropical vacation look.

Heaven’s Hue Highlighter in Transcendence

Heaven’s Hue Highlighter $42 CAD: Released earlier in Fall 2018, this highlighter from Stila is still one of my favourites. It is available in 4 shades that are efficacious and “melts” into your skin for a weightless, radiance-enhancing luminous glow. The gossamer-lighter texture gives a dewy complexion that doesn’t appear washed out but a good reflector!

Little White Lies Heavenly Highlighting Palette $59 CAD: This limited edition palette includes 3 white highlighter shades, each with a different undertone – pink, gold and blue. This highlighter has a creamy powder-like texture that melts and blends into your skin for an illuminating and pearlescent skimmer. Again, similar to the Heaven’s Hue Highlighter, the gossamer-light formula has micro-fine glitters that create an ethereal and glistening fairy effect – perfect for layering and highlighting – without that white streak.
