Don’t Risk Leaving Your Toothbrush Unattended…Try DentaBurst

A few weeks ago during a restroom break at work, I noticed a cup on the counter by the sink. And in said cup was a toothbrush. What the bleep?!?! Grossness.

I used to have aspirations to become a pediatric dentist/orthodontist (long story), so I can appreciate a passion for dental care. But treating a public lavatory like your personal bathroom is taking it to the extreme. Plus, in my opinion, leaving your toothbrush unattended in a public place is incredibly naïve…I mean, haven’t they heard about the Big Brother episode where the vindictive girl cleans the toilet with her rival’s toothbrush? I’ve never even seen that show, but I’ve heard about that eppy a million times.

For those of you who are looking for minty freshness on the go, I’ve found the perfect product for you. DentaBurst teeth cleaners are better than gum because they remove plaque whilst freshening breath. Just place Dentaburst on your index finger, rub it on your teeth, and enjoy the feeling of a clean mouth. The mint flavor tastes great, and it’s also available in cinnamon.They’re individually wrapped, in packs of twelve – so toss a few in your purse, store some in you car, or stash a couple in your desk drawer at work. I think I might leave some on the bathroom counter of my office restroom, and hope that my dental hygiene-happy colleague takes the hint.

DentaBurst is available in the dental aisle at CVS and Target.

The Naked Eye

I don’t typically get excited by makeup removers. But Balms Away, a new vitamin-infused, skin-soothing eye makeup remover from TheBalm has me intrigued. What makes it so special? It’s solid!

Simpy apply a dollop to each closed eye, massage in a circular motion for 3o seconds, and remove with a tissue. Perfect for travel, and for gals on the go.

Available at thebalm.com and Sephora.

Bobbi Brown Quick Face Collection

Do you go to work looking like the undead because you’re short on time in the AM? Me too. Oh, don’t look so shocked. For me, when faced with the choice between waking up early to apply makeup and hitting the snooze button one time too many, I’m always going to pick option B.

Thankfully, Bobbi Brown’s new Quick Face Collection allows me to embrace my inner sleepyhead, yet look polished and awake even when I’m tight on time. These products for cheeks, lips and eyes were designed for those on the go, so you can apply before you leave for work…or en route.

I’m particularly fond of the Lip Crayons – which I swipe on while riding the bus. This chubby pencil is available in four limited-edition shades that look like a better version of your natural lip color.

The finish isn’t chalky at all. In fact, it’s creamy with a smidge of shine – and the crayons have an unexpected, but much appreciated, hint of mint.

Lip Crayons (left to right): Naked Pink, Nude Berry, Red Plum, and Warm Rose.

Long-Wear Cream Eyeshadow (left to right): Slate, Stone, Navajo, and Malted.

New From Besame: Gingerbread 1930s Waterproof Mascara

Gingerbread isn’t something the average person would naturally associate with this time of year. But Besame is about to change all that.

Just in time for Mother’s Day, Besame introduces their new Gingerbread 1930s Waterproof Mascara. Originally developed in the 30s, it contains only 8 ingredients (paraben-free and allergy-tested) to impart gorgeous and defined lashes. The formula is waterproof, but washes off easily with a mild cleaner. The “gingerbread” refers to the conditioning oils (which won’t irritate eyes and smell heavenly), not the color; food grade colorants give this mascara a deep, glossy black hue.

And the best part is that Gingerbread Mascara’s clump-free formula can be layered to your desired thickness and won’t smear.

As a special introductory Mother’s Day Set, Gingerbread Mascara is packaged with Besame’s exclusive Satin Roll and Mini Lip Glaze*. This set is a $40 value for $24, and the promotion runs through May 31st.

*Glaze color may vary.
