Verilux Smart Light Desk Lamp for Learning review....AND GIVEAWAY!!!

I have been redoing my craft room/Great Grandma room for a while now.  It is kind of an office, but it had no ceiling light.  Weird, right? There is a light switch that works an outlet, so we had a lamp plugged into it when guests come that I took off of my sewing table.

Even though I had the lamp on the sewing table, it still is hard to sew at night.  With big craft shows coming up, I NEED to get work done.  With three kids home,lots of that sewing needs to happen at night.

I had the chance to review the Verilux SmartLight.  It is known as "the lamp for learning".

According to their site the light mimicks natural lighting which increases productivity!  It makes is easier to read, less eye strain, more focus, and great productivity.  Umm, score. 

Research actually shows that:
Use of Verilux Natural Spectrum lighting, in a school setting, increased visual acuity (clarity and sharpness of letters) for over 88% of the study participants.  Clarity and preciseness is DEFINITELY something I need when sewing and crafting!

A study of full spectrum lighting in schools reported that students perform better, have higher rates of achievement and have less stress and improved attendance.

So while this is fantastic for my vision while sewing, it is also amazing for students. With school coming up next month (yippee!) I know friends of mine are already posting pictures of back to school shopping. 

Why not include a new desk lamp?  They come in graphite and white. The arm bends amazingly well.  I have actually inverted mine to shine up towards the ceiling when Eric needed to check something out.  They are very light and super bright!  I love mine!

The replacement bulbs are a bit oddly shaped, but able to be purchased on their site.
Want to try your luck and win one?  You can!  Good luck!  This contest ends midnight on the 24th.  I will post the winner as soon as I wake up.  I have to have the winners info to the company on the25th.  PLEASE....make sure you use an email you check on a regular basis.  If the winner hasn't responded by 5pmEST on July 25, I WILL draw a new winner!
