HoMedics Drift review: A unique way to unwind and find your inner zen

I have to admit that when HoMedics reached out for the purposes of this review, I wasn’t exactly sure what to think. It’s not every day that a stress relief tool comes across our emails, but I figured I would give it a shot anyways. And as it turns out, I’m really glad that I did.

As my wife and I recently concluded our most recent moving adventure, we were both feeling a bit stressed and uneasy about moving into a new place. It’s the same feeling that I’ve always had when moving to a new house, and the Drift was actually the first package I received at this new address.

The HoMedics Drift is available directly from HoMedics and select other retailers starting at $399. There are two sizes available, 16-inches or 21-inches, and your color options for the Drift are either Cream or Black.

Of course, the box is absolutely enormous, as the version we have here is the 21-inch Drift in Black, and it’s quite heavy too. HoMedics gives you everything you need to get started: sand, a rake tool, a robust power cord, and the Drift itself.

The setup process was easy enough, as the accompanying app is available on both iOS and Android under the same name as the device itself. Then, after “installing” the sand and spreading it out, it’s just a matter of connecting the app over Bluetooth.

To my surprise, HoMedics seems to have really gone all out with the Drift app. Not only are there pre-selected colors and patterns to choose from, but you also have access to a granular color wheel, complete with being able to save quite a few colors as presets.
