Philips Truly Has The Waking Process Down To A Science With The Philips Wake Up Light Plus! (+ Giveaway -Rafflecopter)



A Little Bit About The Philips Wake Up Light Plus
The Wake-up Light uses a unique combination of light and sound to wake you up in a gentle and natural way so you are ready for the day ahead. You can personalise your waking experience by adding new sounds and music via USB.
  • Soft rising light wakes you gradually: Light gradually increases in 30 minutes before your set wake up time. Light falls on your eyes and increases the level of energy in your body, gently preparing your body to wake up. This makes waking up a more pleasant feeling.
  • Drift to sleep with gradually dimming light and sound:The gradual decreasing light and sound help you to drift to sleep. You can set your preferred time for the duration of the dusk simulation.
  • Smart snooze - tap anywhere to snooze:You can put the Wake-up Light into snooze mode by simply tapping anywhere on the product. After 9 minutes the sound will gently start playing again.

Features Include:

  • Independent research
  • 250 lux light intensity
  • Bedside lamp
  • Clinically proven
  • 4 natural wake-up sounds
  • Replaceable halogen lamp
  • Add new sounds & music via USB
  • FM Radio
Our Experience
The waking process for our daughter and myself truly is a finely balanced process. The old saying, "don't poke the bear" definitely comes to mind. Yep, we are generally not morning people. My husband and son on the other hand are the complete opposite; always fully refreshed and way too cheery in the morning. And yes, I am a bit envious of their ability to rise so gleeful!

Lately, waking in the morning hasn't been quiet as abrasive as it has in the past. Over the past few day's I've been rising to the gentle glow of light and the sweet sound of chirping birds. I know what your thinking. But, it's Winter? It's gray and cold in the Northeast part of the country? Birds Chirping? Has she finally lost it? Nope. I've discovered The Philips Wake Up Light Plus.

The Wake Up Light Plus gently
 starts the waking process with a dim light and soft tone of your choice ( choose between the on-board nature sounds, a preset FM Radio Station or your favorite tunes by connecting your MP3 through USB). The light then gradually increases the level of  brightness over a 30 minute time period. As the process begins 30 minutes before the set waking time, by the time that it's reached it's maximum level of brightness your body is more ready to wake (unlike an average alarm that jars you awake abruptly with loud unfriendly noise).

I've definitely been more refreshed and prepared when it comes time to get out of bed in the morning, and I'm loving all of the additional features in the Wake Up Light PlusIt doubles as a bed side lamp (adjustable in brightness), FM Radio, and sound machine (in addition to preloaded nature sounds, you can download additional free tones online via the USB port), and can be preset for 2 separate wake up times. Another plus is the ability set it to "snooze" by touching any portion of the lamp (no need to strain your eyes in the morning searching for the right button).

The dusk setting on the Wake Up Light Plus is perfect for both adults that may have a hard time falling asleep and children.  The dusk feature gently eases you into sleep by dimming the brightness of light over a 30 minute time period. It's a great tool to help little one's fall asleep!  Our daughter is terrified of the dark, and though she has two night lights in her room, she is not a huge fan of having the lamp abruptly shut off. We will be purchasing a second Wake Up Light Plus for her room so that she can drift of to sleep gently with the soft glow gradually dimming.

Philips truly has the waking process down to a science!

The Philips Wake Up Light Plus would make the perfect gift for everyone on your list this Holiday season!

  2. FIRST! Sorry I am never first so I had to say that. I could really use this product becauseI have a problem with waking up. I have 4 different alarm clocks located around my bedroom. (2 have the option for 2 seperate wake up times) Light waking me up would be much nicer than blasting my local spanish station.

  3. I'm excited for this because I think BEEP BEEP BEEP is a little outrageous.

    Yes....I was screaming. But that's what it sounds like every morning :)
