Review & Giveaway: Glade Spring Products

The birds are chirping, the sun is out and if you're in the South it's starting to get super hot! What does that mean? Well, it's springtime of course! And one of my most favorite things about spring is the wondrous smells that are everyone. I'm talking about flowers, freshly cut grass, thunderstorms! And who is better at capturing those smells than Glade. I'm a big Glade fan and thanks to The Family Review Network and Glade I got the chance to try out their limited edition Sparkle of Spring spray and scented oil candle.



To spark the excitement of spring, Glade is introducing two new limited-edition home fragrances – Bring on the Blossoms™ and Sparkle of Spring™. It is the perfect time to freshen your home with citrus and floral fragrances and spruce up your wardrobe with new styles that reflect the joy that comes along with sunny, longer days. Entertainment journalist and co-host of E!’s Fashion Police, Giuliana Rancic has partnered with Glade to inspire women to update their look this spring and celebrate the budding season. Rancic is an expert in today’s fashion and shares firsthand how surroundings, especially in the home, can help set the mood. And yes I must admit I'm a fan. I'm a reality TV junkie and I love watching Giuliana and Bill...hehehe.

Here's Giuliana's top 5 tips to stay on-trend and feel fresh and exhilarated in time for spring:
Reinforce Ruffles
Revitalize Home Fragrance- Glade helps here!
Bright Colors, Fresh Look
Wake Up Happy.
Go for Geometric Jewels.


My Take: Now on to the good stuff. I was so excited to get the spray and the candle in the mail. I'm a sucker for candles and I really haven't purchased any spring or summer scents and I was actually just about out of sprays! (Perfect timing Glade!)


The Sparkle of Spring scent is described as:Fresh and citrusy with zesty lime, ginger and vanilla notes. Interesting was all I could say when I saw that. I wasn't sure if I would like it or not. Well I would soon find out. I had company coming over and what a better way to freshen the guest bedroom than to spray some smell good. First, I must comment on my favorite feature of the glade spray bottle. It has a lock! Yes, a lock. Meaning when little 2 year olds try to spray it they would first have to figure out that you must turn the top to unlock it! YES...loving Glade for looking out for moms!


Second, I wouldn't call it a spray. it's a mist. It just floats throughout the room in a continuous stream. Perfect for covering a big area. Third, the smell. Different but I love it. I've had so many people ask me, where did you get that candle or what smell is that? You can't confuse it with other companies because I don't think there is another company out there with a spray with a scent like this! I'm a big fan of originality.



As for the candle. Remember back during the Christmas holidays Glade was having a contest to design the holders for their oil candles? Well this is one of those pretty designed holders. I love it. The colors are vibrant and perfect for a party. The only thing I would caution against is smell. It is super strong so I never had to burn it for that long of a time. It's great for the kitchen when you are cooking though. And I love that once the candle burns out, you just pull out the metal clip and replace it with a new candle. Yes, it's refillable! Great for the frugal moms out there!
