I love this little humidifier! A few years back, when I got sick, my pulmonologist told me to get a cool mist humidifier. The warm ones make my chest feel heavy and make it harder for me to breathe, but the cannula for my oxygen dries my nose out so badly that I get really bad nosebleeds. So a cool mist humidifier beside me during the day could help with some of the drying, and doc said I could put my face up close to it and breath in the mist.
Well, I ordered two different cool mist humidifiers online, big, expensive, nice ones... and they were noisy, bulky and awkward. You had to wet the filters and then put them in and then set them up and turn them on... and they didn't put out the mist like I remember them doing when I was a kid.
So I get this complementary portable cool mist humidifier in exchange for an honest review and I wasn't holding out much hope for it. I'd been down that road with much more expensive and...

(EDIT: The humidifier has now stopped working completely. It started having intermittent problems after several uses, requiring jostling to get the mist going. It got progressively worse, requiring taking the unit apart and checking for problems, but eventually the mist will start. Now, just a few weeks later, it has completely stopped misting. I checked and scrubbed all the parts to make sure there everything was working, and I have only used distilled water, so it's not as if there are mineral buildups that are causing blockage. The top end of the sponge that touches the misting part is...
This little humidifier worked much better than I ever expected it to and I really like the pretty purple glow from the light that was unexpected. The mist it produces is very, very fine and does not cause wetness to settle in the area of the humidifier. I filled it up and let it go because I wanted to see how long the water would last before it was empty. It ran for about 5 hours and still had a little water left in it. Perfect for the bedside to help with dryness. Or if you spend a lot of time at your computer you can plug it in on your desk. It's very small and takes up hardly any room at all.
It works off USB so you can literally take it anywhere you want to go. The bedroom, the office, the craft room, the car, anywhere. It's a great personal humidifier and is very easy to use. I am very pleased with it. Sample provided for review purposes.
