Refresh Ltd Run (511454)<br />A transparent light emerald green.

A transparent light emerald green.




"Refresh was intended to be a re-melt of my favourite Aloe Juice, hence the comparison! I would say Refresh has a touch more yellow than blue tones and is less saturated. It sits between Reichenbach Antique crystal and Effetre Pale Emerald. Comparisons aside, Refresh is a gorgeous green in it's own right, and behaves well. And one thing I like about CiM, is that they don't pass off a different shade as the same colour, so while Ltd Runs may frustrate some, it's not as frustrating as buying a colour online only to find it wildly different to a previous batch." – Trudi Doherty

Messy Tester's Feedback

  • Refresh was an attempt to re-create Aloe Juice, or a version of Appletini with more blue in it. Testers suggested that Refresh is no replacement for Aloe Juice- that we should try again and go even blu-er than Refresh.
Aloe Juice was more saturated. – Heather Kelly

Refresh is only a tiny bit lighter than Appletini, and not enough to make much of a difference - although it is better behaved. Refresh doesn't look like Aloe Juice in my opinion. It needs to have less yellow, more blue and be more saturated. – Kandice Seeber
Refresh is a little less saturated than Aloe Juice and maybe a tad yellower . . . but it’s close. – Gloria Sevey

"A very pretty light green very aptly named. The glass if worked too hot did have some bubbles, so it is best to work on a cooler flame." Read more at Darlene's blog.

"It's light enough that you could use it for encasing." Read more at DragonJools blog.

"A pale green transparent, similar to Effetre Pale Emerald Green. Melted well, a few scummy bubbles in the spacers and the bird head, more from me not pinching the end off and over heating the rod than fault with the glass."
