White On: Supersmile Super-size 4 Piece Whitening System

Supersmile Super-size 4 Piece Whitening System with Rinse & Rods

As the mom of a newborn and a 4-year-old, I live on coffee. Seriously, Starbucks is the only reason I’m conscious enough to type this. But you’d never guess how much coffee I consume to look at my smile. That’s because I discovered a truly amazing teeth whitening system.

I’m on maternity leave and I spend quite a bit of time with QVC on the TV. I get absolutely mesmerized by the demonstrations. Anyway, one day, I watched the Supersmile Super-size 4 Piece Whitening System with Rinse & Rods demo – and I was intrigued. They were showing some unreal before and after photos – and I decided I needed to see what this kit could do for my stained smile.   (more…)

Whiten Up: Rembrandt Deeply White Toothpaste

Hi, my name is Daneen and I am addicted to caffeine. Two years ago, before my son was born, coffee was a luxury, not a necessity. I would occasionally partake in an occasional cup of coffee or indulge myself with a Starbucks treat. But post-Westley, I stop at Wawa every morning to pick up a 16 to 20 oz coffee – just to get my head right before work. My teeth show the signs of my coffee compulsion and they’ve been looking particularly lackluster lately.

Just last month, I was seriously considering visiting my dentist for a professional whitening treatment. But a few weeks ago, Rembrandt sent me their DEEPLY WHITE® + Peroxide Fresh Mint Toothpaste to try. So I put my dentist plans on hold and decided to give Rembrandt’s product a go. (more…)

I Can’t Believe It’s Not Lip Gloss: Clinique Butter Shine Lipstick

I haven’t worn lip gloss in almost three weeks. This is huge news for a lip gloss junkie like me…and probably a new record.

If you’re a gloss loyalist who rarely breaks out anything in the stick variety, I’ve found a product that might just change your tune. For almost a month, I’ve had Clinique Colour Surge Butter Shine Lipstick on lockdown. It’s a sheer lipstick with gloss-like tendencies that “drenches lips in moist, lush color that glides on buttery-soft, and feels luxuriously smooth.”

I’m partial to Raspberry Rush, which is described as raspberry with a hint of gold pearl. Paired with a few swipes of black mascara, it lends my face an easy yet polished look.

Clinique recently enlisted the help of a dentist to identify lipstick shades that instantly make your teeth look less mother of pearl and more pearly white…and Raspberry Rush is one of them. These shades are proven to make teeth look at least one shade brighter – it was confirmed using a dental color guide. The Clinique brightening lipstick shades include:

*High Impact Lip Colour SPF 15 in After Party, Go Fig, Peach Pop and Red-y To Wear

*Colour Surge Butter Shine Lipstick in Cranberry Cream, Pink-a-Boo and Raspberry Rush

*Different Lipstick in Ice Bloom, Raspberry Glace and Shy

*Long Last Soft Shine Lipstick in Twilight Nude

I’ve found my perfect shade. Find yours at

Arm & Hammer Does Infomercials?

Was up late (again) last night…blogging into the wee hours. And guess what I saw? An infomercial from Arm & Hammer.

I’m still not quite sure why such an established brand needs to be running commercials at 1:30am during an episode of Escaped on the Investigation Discovery channel, but here’s what they were hocking: , “the new secret in teeth whitening.”

Apparently, you apply it to your toothbrush, on top of your favorite toothpaste. For the low, low price of $19.99 (plus S&H), you receive the following:

* 2 Arm & Hammer Whitening Boosters
* 1 Arm & Hammer Advance White Brilliant Sparkle Toothpaste (4.3 oz)
* 1 SpinBrush Classic Clean Toothbrush
* 1 SpinBrush Travel Case
* 2 Arm & Hammer Advance White Brilliant Sparkle Toothpaste (travel sized)
