#Dating Dealbreaker?

Whitening-Lightening-3

Could whiter teeth lead to better relationships and job growth? According to Match.com, teeth are the number one standard by which both men and women judge their potential dating partners, ahead of other dating dealbreakers like bad grammar, hair or clothes. Kelton Research also found that 58% of applicants are more likely to be offered a job and 53% offered a raise if their teeth are whiter. Although the benefits of whiter teeth are more than just cosmetic, many consumers are skeptical of at-home whiteners due to chemicals or sensitivity to ingredients.

Whitening Lightning’s chemical-free ZERO White System is formulated with baking soda and pomegranate extract for a sensitivity-free, whiter smile. Simply dry teeth with the provided wipes and brush on the gel formulation. To activate the formulation, place the provided UV light on teeth for 20 minutes and brush off for a whiter smile. The formulation is so gentle, that it can also be worn overnight.

I have this product – and I’ve tried it – and I think it REALLY works. I’d post pictures of my own teeth, but that just grosses me right out. :) You’ll have to take my word for it. I love how easy this system is to use – and the results are clear! I have to pick up the Whitening Pen for continued use!

Whitening Lightning is available via www.whiteninglightning.com – ZERO White System, $115 | ZERO White Teeth Whitening Pen, $29

New! Philips PureRadiance Facial Cleansing System

SC5274_10-IMS-en_US

Summer is rough on my skin with the sun, sweat and long days my skin can develop blemishes and just look a bit dull. I have used cleansing brushes before but the New Philips PureRadiance Cleansing System looked a bit different than the other brushes I have used and I was excited to see how well it would work.

The PureRadiance brush uses Sonic technology plus Advanced Dual Motion that work together to rotate the brush head and deep clean your skin removing dirt and makeup. I like that it doesn’t take any longer than my normal cleansing routine.  I just add my cleanser turn the device on and start working around my face. The brush has a slight pause every 20 seconds to tell you when its time to rotate sections from cheek to forehead then the other cheek. It also has two settings, speed one is gentle and speed 2 is deep cleaning.

After just the first use my skin felt really clean and smooth and I love that it exfoliates any dry, dead skin leaving my skin clean and radiant. The brush is very easy to hold and much lighter than others I have tried.  It comes with a charger, a drying stand and a cloth travel case. If you are looking to get your skin in shape or keep it looking great be sure to check this out.

Review: Nerium Firm Body Contouring Cream

51htPlN6lgL._SL1500_

Summer is here and that means shorts, dresses, swimsuits and lots of skin peeking out. After 3 kids and sliding down the backside  of my 30′s I have noticed my skin is just not where I want to be. Jocelyn and I both loved Nerium AD and I was excited to try out their newest launch Nerium Firm.

As I wanted to see the quickest results I  decided to use the cream  in the morning and at ngiht.  I focused on my legs from knee to hip which is one of my biggest trouble areas. It doesn’t take too much cream as a little goes a long way and it absorbs quickly leaving my skin feeling soft and smooth.

I just finished my third week of treatment and I can really see the results. After just a few weeks my skin is definitely firmer but the best part is there are less bumps and dimples and my skin is much smoother overall. Now ladies don’t expect to use this cream and get the skin of an 18 year old overnight. But if you want smoother, firmer skin this really is a great product. I am very happy with the difference so far and excited to see continued improvement.

 

NeriumFirm $98
A scientific breakthrough holds the answers to looking toned and smooth all year long. Following the historical success of the NeriumAD age-defying skincare line, Nerium International presents NeriumFirm Body Contouring Cream!

NeriumFirm is a skin-tightening cream developed from the patented NAE-8 extract of the Nerium oleander plant. Its powerful antioxidant formulation has been clinically proven to reduce the appearance of cellulite and dimpling and to help smooth, tighten and firm the appearance of loose skin. NeriumFirm also helps restore the appearance of youthful contour, tone and texture.

NeriumFirm is the only contouring product on the market harnessing the power of the NAE-8 extract, the key ingredient in the renowned NeriumAD skincare line. In addition to the proven results of NAE-8, NeriumFirm contains five other key ingredients:

Peptide matrix
Caffeine
White willow bark extract
Green tea leaf extract
Forskohlii root extract

Apply 1 – 2 teaspoons of NeriumFirm with gentle circular massaging motions to the targeted area (from the knee to the hip, the buttocks, the arms and/or abdomen), ideally while skin is warm and damp, then allow to dry 5 – 8 minutes prior to bedtime or dressing. Best used after showering and exfoliating on clean damp skin. You may experience a tingling or warming sensation and a little erythema (redness of the skin), which will dissipate quickly.

DO NOT mix with other products and make sure the targeted area is clean, damp, and free of lotions or products. For Better Results: As noted above, your main application of NeriumFirm should be in the evening before bed, just after a warm shower and preparing your skin surface with light exfoliation (the product works best overnight while you sleep). Want to supercharge your results? Add a second application of NeriumFirm in the morning!
