Dry, cracking skin is inevitable as the temperature continues to drop. Don’t feel like leaving the house to get to the salon?

  • Mix 2 cups of whole milk and 1 cup of hot water into a bowl
  • Add a few drops of lavender or vanilla essential oil
  • Soak feet for 5-10 minutes

The lactic acid in the milk will loosen dead skin, smoothing out calluses

The essential oils will calm the skin and soothe any soreness or inflammation

  • Exfoliate your heels, feet and lower legs with a homemade sugar scrub
  • Try mixing together 1 tablespoon of brown sugar, baking soda and olive oil
  • Finish with a thick, shea butter lotion to lock in an extra dose of moisture

MAC announces Miley Cyrus as the new face of Viva Glam!

miley-mac-glam

Miley Cyrus is the new face of MAC’s Viva Glam campaign! Color me shocked!

I’m actually surprised it’s taken this long. If anything screams Viva Glam – it’s Miley. What do you think of their collaboration?

For the last 20 years, MAC’s Viva Glam campaign has been teaming up with passionate celebrities to create capsule collections of lipsticks and glosses that raise funds and awareness for HIV/AIDS programs (every cent of the sale price goes to the cause). Now, Miley Cyrus joins the ranks of Rihanna, Nicki Minaj and Lady Gaga as the latest spokesperson for the campaign, which launches in January 2015 with a hot pink lipstick and sparkly gloss.

Whiter Teeth In One Week With Colgate Optic White

teethWhitening101

If your teeth are like mine they might be a little dingy from coffee and the occasional bottle err glass of red wine. Well never fear we can hide our affinity for dark beverages with the new Colgate Optic White Line. A trio of products that will have your teeth looking whiter and brighter in just one week!

Check out below for my thoughts on each product.

optic white toothpaste

I love this toothpaste, it has a great foaming element that leaves my teeth and mouth looking and feeling fresh and clean. I have been using it for two weeks now and I am definitely seeing an improvement in the discoloration on my teeth.

Colgate Optic White Toothpaste
The must-have toothpaste for your whitening toolkit.

With regular use, this high-impact whitening toothpaste:

  • Removes stains ordinary toothpastes don’t.
  • Whitens more than 3 shades*, results start in just one week!

Plus, it’s got a special formula made with enamel-safe whitening toothpaste ingredients.

The taste of this was a bit weird not bad but a bit different. It didn’t burn like some mouthwashes which was great and it definitely makes my mouth feel super fresh so I can leave with the mildly odd taste. And I have stopped using it as creamer in my morning coffee, that just didn’t work!

Colgate Optic White Mouthwash
Whiten, Freshen, & Protect
Freshens breath
Helps Remove Surface Stains
2% hydrogen peroxide formula whitens as it freshens.
WhiteSeal® technology forms a shield around teeth, to help seal out new stains.

colgate optic white toothbrush and pen

Love, love, love this brush. Ok what weirdo loves a toothbrush? This one! Ask Jocelyn I have a weird thing about epically long brushing sessions. I should probably channel that energy into flossing but hey I still have time to pick that up before my next dentist appointment.

I really like the multiple layers on this brush it gets all the food and ick off my teeth and they feel smooth and clean after. And how great is it to have the whitening pen right in the brush? Genius! The Whitening Pen is easy to apply and didn’t cause any sensitivity and within the first few days I started to see a marked improvement on the stains on my teeth.

Colgate Optic White Toothbrush + Whitening Pen
Brush. Whiten. Go.™
A convenient and affordable way to get whiter teeth in just two days.* The Optic White® Toothbrush + Whitening Pen.

  • Brush as you normally would with your regular toothpaste. The Colgate® Optic White® toothbrush is specially designed with polishing bristles and stain removers to help remove surface stains.
  • Turn the dial at the bottom of the whitening pen and apply gel. It takes only seconds to apply and adhere to your teeth. No waiting, no rinsing.
  • Store pen inside brush.

Overall I think this is a great line for everyday whitening and the best part it didn’t create any sensitivity issues for me.  You can learn more about the Colgate Optic White collection here or purchase any of the items your local drugstore or mass retailer.
