Inside the Box:

Cailyn Tinted Lip Balm in Big Apple: Full Size!!! $19.00 value
I am new to this brand but I love it. The red color is gorgeous and I love how easy it is to apply with the brush. The product is listed as a balm but I would say its more a stain as the color lasts all day.

Sheswai Nail Lacquer: Full Size!!! $16 value: This is by far one of my favorite nail polish lines I have tried. The brush makes it super easy to apply without making a mess. And even better it doesn’t chip. I am lucky to go a whole day without chipping my polish, usually its within the first hours of application. With Sheswai polish I made it Monday to Friday before it started chipping! I will be ordering more.

Pur-lisse Pur-Delicate Gentle Soymilk Cleanser: Deluxe Sampe size $12.65 Value: At 1.7 oz, this is a very generous sample. I love this cleanser its super gentle and doesn’t irritate my skin. This is a great sample size for my travel bag.

Manna Kadar Sheer Glow Shimmer Lotion: Deluxe Sample size $8.00 value: A really great shimmer lotion it goes on light and adds the perfect glow to my cheekbones.

Racinne Ultimate Aqua Blanc Brightening Mask: 3 foil packets with a $5.00 value: This is on the list for my Friday night spa night. I can’t wait to see how it works.

Oil Pulling For Teeth Whitening

I have heard quite a bit about oil pulling and the benefits. So far the thought of swishing oil in my mouth for 20 minutes has kept me form jumping on this bandwagon. Have any of you tried it? What were you results?

Dr. Jessica Emery, owner of Sugar Fix Dental Loft Chicago weighs in on the subject from the side of a professional.

 

Oil Pulling
Even though an ancient health remedy, Oil pulling has returned, transforming into a beauty & wellness topic that has gone viral today.

What is it? How does it affect your smile? Will it whiten teeth? Below, please find expert commentary from leading cosmetic dentist Dr. Jessica Emery, DMD, owner of Sugar Fix Dental Loft Chicago. www.sugarfixdental.com

There is nothing more splendid and virtuous then unrefined coconut oil. It is a hot topic now coming back from the ancient days of tradition. ‘Oil pulling’ is a technique used to clean your teeth and mouth. You place a spoonful of coconut oil in your mouth and swish with it for up to 20 minutes. When finished make sure you spit into a trash can and not the sink as it can clog the pipes.

People swear by it, that it can fill cavities, relieve toothaches, whiten teeth, freshen breath, absorb harmful bacteria and even say it cures the common cold. From a dentist’s perspective, tooth decay is caused by bacteria and studies suggest that coconut oil treated with enzymes (which is like the process that occurs when you have oil in your mouth), the enzymes in your saliva break down. It seems to inhibit the growth of certain bacteria. So a good thing. Patients that have oil pulled have said that they ‘love how their mouth feels after swishing and that it lasts all day”. They also say that tooth pain is not gone but better. Makes sense to me as we use Vitamin E oil to sooth the gums and clove oil to sooth tooth aches. They work. I have not tried oil pulling personally but think I may jump on the bandwagon to see for myself. No solid proof that it works but it certainly makes people feel better. Your cheeks may get tired but I say ‘swish away’.
