We’re already on the prowl for ways to stay sane, motivated, and cozy, even as every cold weather natural element fights against us.
As our NYC-based team sits together compiling this review, rain rips across the windows in diagonal sheets. Umbrellas line the floor. Jackets slip off chair backs. Summer has officially escaped us.
When it’s cold out, you’re only as content as you are moisturized. This season is all about hydration—and we aren’t talking about lattes. Enter: the Canopy Bedside Humidifier, our always-on solution for healthy, hydrated skin.
A humidifier may seem like a gratuitous, even lavish, purchase. But when you look into the science behind Canopy technologies, it becomes evident that humidifiers are no more a luxury than the water they distribute—we need them.
Breaking (And Building) Barriers
Here at The Get Well, the health (and appearance) of our skin is paramount (it is the largest organ, after all). Canopy pledges to improve the performance of the skin barrier as a natural defense system. The importance of the skin barrier has been a hot topic in the wellness world as of late, so, naturally, we were intrigued.
The skin barrier needs hydration in order to operate at its maximum efficiency. Well-moisturized skin will better absorb topical products and, as a result, reap greater benefits. Canopy makes it so easy it almost feels too good to be true: just add water. The universal solvent, the elixir of life… it’s really no wonder that clean moisture works wonders. Clean being the operative word here.
Canopy takes pains to make sure that the moisture provided by their humidifiers is stripped of all impurities and toxins. You can pour regular tap water into the 2.5L container of the Bedside Humidifier, rest assured that only the good stuff will make it past your Canopy filter. And although the skin barrier itself isn’t visible, the results most certainly are.
Step into the Canopy Lab
Several members of our team were skeptical about the premise of the world’s cleanest humidifier–the appliances don’t exactly scream “fresh” (or even “modern”). From the very beginning, Canopy has been unraveling this narrative. We’ve been “testing” the Bedside Humidifier for months (read: we cannot imagine life without it) and in that time, we’ve found their efforts to be a success.
The sleek, unassuming design of the Bedside Humidifier encases a device engineered to include everything you expect from a humidifier, and then some:
- Uniquely mist-free
- Smart Persistent Airflow (SPA) technology
- Embedded UV LEDs to prevent mold
- Easily disassemblable and dishwasher safe
- Range of sizes to accommodate different spaces
The other humidifying guys have run into consistent issues with their misting humidifiers—namely, the growth of mold. Canopy circumvents this issue with multiple features, one of which is SPA. This function shuts off your humidifier only once the water inside has run out, so there’s no way for leftover moisture to produce mold (because who has the time to dry out their humidifier anyway?).
Humidify Your Way to Wellness
With benefits spanning so many areas of life, you might assume maintaining your own Canopy humidifier to be complicated or expensive. We’re pleased to report that, in our experience, neither has been the case.
For one, they’re extremely accommodating. The original Bedside Humidifier is ultra powerful, effective in rooms up to 500 square feet. Should you need a bigger range of coverage, though, the Humidifier Plus doubles it to 1,000 square feet.
Canopy also has multiple colorways to choose from, all of which are subtle but still allow room to play. Every aesthetic is accounted for, as Canopy includes all of the classics (White, Moonstruck, Cream) plus versions of white with colored accents. Another personalization route comes in the form of scents (!!!). Canopy Aroma Kits include collabs with The Skinny Confidential, Curie, The Sill, and Laneige. Most recently, Canopy President Alli Webb curated her own line of oils.
Invest in Canopy (Because They Definitely Invest in You)
Beyond looking and feeling better with Canopy, since using the Bedside Humidifier many of us have felt unexpected support on the brand level. Canopy is one of the rare wellness brands with a genuine investment in consumers.
Every humidifier comes with a free vial of essential oil to test the addition of aroma to your device, plus the “puck” necessary to diffuse it. Their cardboard packaging is covered in small reminders to treat yourself kindly, an effort which they’ve already devoted themselves to and hope you’ll join them in. And for all of the business-minded buyers out there, Canopy has a 12 month warranty for all of its products.
Canopy offers ways to even further enhance your experience with a supplementary subscription of filters, fragrances, or both. Order your humidifier and register to receive a new filter and three-piece aroma kit at the same time, replenished every forty-five days. We did the math and this comes out to $25 in savings for your first order ($40 if you go for the Humidifier Plus)!
TLDR; Canopy has reimagined the humidifier and we genuinely cannot get enough. Head to their website and get under the Canopy with us—your skin will thank you.
