Lumie Starter 30 Bodyclock Christmas Present Giveaway

Lumie understand that we can't always just wake up instantly, they appreciate how hard it can be on our poor tired souls. Especially in winter, to have time to wake up slowly and naturally is often impossible. The Lumie Starter 30 Bodyclock wakes you by increasing the light gradually over 30 minutes. Recreating a natural dawn helps to keep your sleep cycle on track, boosting mood, energy and productivity levels all day.


At the other end of the day, your Lumie Bodyclock light also recreates dusk, to relax you and settle you for a better night's sleep...


I live in Manchester. In Winter we get 14 seconds of sunlight a day, usually around 1pm, and it isn't usually wise to stay in bed until then, it also means we really are missing out on natural light. The Lumie Bodyclock can also be used with a lightbox to help combat SAD, and can help reset your circadian rhythm to overcome jetlag or shift work.


Setting up the clock is really easy. It's necessary to take the cover off to install the specially designed bulb, and then follow the written instructions or online video tutorial to set up your clock as you want it. I found the instructions looked really daunting, but when I actually came to do it, it was easy and straightforward.


The Lumie Bodyclock light has a gorgeous 'rays of sunshine' effect at the rear, which diffuses the light and throws a pattern on the wall. You can also use your clock as an infinitely adjustable dimmable nightlight. The light level changes are really broad, from a bright white light, to a warm glow to represent the setting/rising sun.


I haven't yet had time to properly test the Lumie Bodyclock, but I have a lot of faith in the Science behind it and the positive reviews I've heard from people I know and trust, as well as those I've read online. And I'm pleased with what I've seen so far.... ask me again in the morning....

I'll be revisiting the Lumie Bodyclock in a review later, as well as looking at the Lumie Clear - Light Therapy for problem skin - which my teenage daughter is testing.


 The Starter 30 has an rrp of £59.95 and there are a range of Lumie Bodyclocks with different special functions. You can find out more about the range, and what it can do for you, on the Lumie Bodyclock website
