GE Reveal Light Bulb Makeover
Disclosure: For this GE Reveal Light Bulb Makeover, GE Lighting sent me a 4-pack of GE reveal® 75W halogen light bulbs free of charge. As always, all opinions are 100% my own.

Recently, a representative for GE Lighting asked me to do a lighting makeover using the new GE reveal® light bulbs..
Well, I must say I was a little nervous since this was my first “real” review on the blog. Sure, I give my opinion about products all the time but they have always been products that I regularly use. So, before I received the bulbs, I researched the GE Lighting website and was excited to learn that the new GE reveal® light bulbs use 28% less energy verses their incandescent counter parts. Even though that was an important feature for me, I was really interested to see how the new bulbs would look in my house.
Well, I will let you be the judge!…
GE Reveal Light Bulb Before and After:
Ta da! As you can see, there is definitely a difference between the yellow light from the old bulb and the clean white light from the GE reveal® light bulb! Just to let you know, these photos were not altered (except to add the blog watermark and “Before” and “After”). I think you’d agree that there is a clear difference between the two bulbs. Seriously, don’t you just love how the new GE reveal® bulb looks?!! In my opinion, it actually brings new life to the lamp I bought from Target last spring!
In my room, the walls are Benjamin Moore – Bone White but in the picture with the old bulb (on left), the walls look very yellow. The GE reveal® bulb (on right) makes the room seem so fresh, crisp and even brighter! The new light bulb actually gives my room more of a daylight feel compared to the tired yellow light from before. With the dreary winter we have been having, it’s like a breath of fresh air to have some bright, cheerful lighting in my home!
Anyway, the light bulbs they sent me for review provide lighting which is equivalent to a 75 watt incandescent bulb, but they only use 53 watts per bulb.
Here are some more quick facts (via the GE Lighting website) about the GE Reveal Light Bulbs :
- These bulbs bring out the colors and patterns that may normally go unnoticed under standard incandescent light.
- They bring the true beauty of your home to life by filtering out the dingy yellow tones unlike standard incandescent bulbs.
- The color-enhanced full spectrum light bulbs make your whites appear whiter, reds redder, and allow patterns throughout your home to “pop”.
- These light bulbs are designed to use 28% less energy than standard incandescent bulbs.
- Up to 80% energy savings compared to incandescent bulbs.
Obviously, I would highly recommend GE reveal® bulbs to anyone who wants a more naturally lit home.
Now that I have tried one in my Target lamp, I’m ready to start switching the rest of my bulbs around the house!
Hopefully, I inspired you to check out these awesome lightbulbs yourself!

You really can see a difference. Funny I am going to be reviewing another light bulb brand soon.
so many wonderful new lighting options, I do love the white light and I have just tried some pink lighting for a tablescape, so pretty…
The new light bulbs make quite a difference. Thanks for sharing the Target coupons.
I tried to get on the band wagon and try the " new" light bulbs out there but so far have not found any I like. I have wasted so much money trying to find the right bulbs it is ridiculous and some of them are not so cheap! I am going to try the ones you reviewed because they look like they offer the same amount of light as the old bulb.~Des
Thanks for the info. and review as I have been apprehensive to try these new bulbs.
Great tip….and that lamp is GORG!!
Lightbulbs really do make SUCH a difference, and this is proof!!Stacy
I love reveal bulbs, they do make such a difference. Easier to read under one too.
I am amazed to see the difference!! I am definitely going to try them. Thank you for such a great review, and for posting the Target coupons and app. I am a Cartwheel user at Target too, and I am always thrilled to see extra savings at the register!
Great post, Shelley! I really dislike yellow light bulbs, so these are right up my alley. Glad you shared them with us.
Cool! Thanks for the info Shelley!
The difference is very noticeable. I usually prefer using a dimmer yellow lighting for the bedroom, since it’s darker and thus encourages sleep. But in your case, I guess the dreary winter is enough to do that job. I hope this white light is enough to bring a cheerful glow into your home to go against the gloomy weather.Bryan Hubbard @ Douthit Electrical
