Protect your smile with non-abrasive products

I have always been a whitening product junkie you name it I’ve tried it so when I heard about Dentisse I was really excited to get a chance to try it. The fact that its a clay based toothpaste had me intrigued to be honest I thought it might feel or taste a little gross but curisoty made me give it a whirl.

Now in the 2nd week of using Dentisse I really love it. There is no weird clay feel or taste, but there is an amazing mint flavor.  Its so gentle and leaves my teeth and mouth  so amazingly minty clean. My favorite thing it that my mouth feels so much cleaner long after I brush and my teeth are super smooth and bright.

Dentisse Natural Reflection Toothpaste

We all want a picture perfect smile, which sometimes involves investing in whitening, bonding or veneers. However, many popular dental hygiene products are abrasive and can actually ruin teeth.

According to Dr. Emanuel Layliev of the New York Center for Cosmetic Dentistry, in order to protect our smiles, it is best to avoid alcohol based rises, colored rinses and excess fluoride containing rinses, as well as toothpastes that contain abrasive elements such as baking soda.

Dr. Layliev recommends Dentisse Natural Reflection Toothpaste and Natural Reflection rinse to protect and brighten our smiles. The rinse is an alcohol-free rinse that contains aloe vera and doesn’t burn or dry. The toothpaste is a clay-based paste that smoothes, polishes and whitens without any being abrasive to the teeth.

What makes Dentisse more effective than other “whitening” toothpastes marketed today? Simply put: Its unique formula. Ten years in research and development, the natural ingredients in Dentisse are combined in a proprietary way that enhances their tooth-polishing power.* Key among these ingredients are…a safe, effective cleaning, polishing and whitening agent: kaolin clay That’s right: clay. But a unique white clay, purified and refined. Its particles have flat surfaces with microscopic ridges that polish teeth to a micro-smooth luster. a smoothing agent: bentonite clay

Dentisse Natural Reflection toothpaste gently smoothes and polishes tooth enamel, safely removing surface stains and harmful plaque. When used regularly, it prevents plaque and stains from forming. Two weeks of faithful use, and your teeth will be noticeably brighter and smoother, your breath will be fresher – and your smile will take on a new radiance.

Kim Kardashian opens up to Glamour Magazine about her body image – and more!

Kim Kardashian is Feburary’s cover girl for Glamour Magazine, and inside Katie Kouric interviews Kim on body issues – and what it’s like to be a sex symbol.

Katie Couric: Because a lot of young women read this magazine, I wanted to ask you about issues you’ve had with your body in the past and growing up and being bullied. You developed early, is that true?

Kim Kardashian: Kourtney probably bullied me the most because she hadn’t developed. She was always making fun of me. I mean, when I was 11 I was a C-cup and I got my period. I was just insecure.

Katie Couric: But how did you sort of come to love, accept and appreciate the body you had?

Kim Kardashian: I remember I would sit in the bathtub, and I would put a hot washcloth on my boobs and think, Please, Lord, just please, I don’t want to grow any bigger. I would cry. My mom would say, “You are going to love this one day.” And she was like, “You’re Armenian. Look at all your aunts. They’re super curvy, and this is your family. This is who you are.” We were raised around all of our Armenian cousins, and I know a lot about the culture. So I think that made me confident in who I am.

Katie Couric: How do you feel about being a sex symbol? Is it empowering or degrading?

Kim Kardashian: It’s definitely powerful. I don’t find myself as sexy as everyone thinks. I’m a lot more insecure than people would assume, but with little stupid things. When I get dressed, I’m always so indecisive.

After 15 years in the shoe business, Jimmy Choo launches its first fragrance!

According to Stylist, the Jimmy Choo is launching their first fragrance, to be sold exclusively at Saks Fifth Avenue starting January 15th.

The fragrance will be called Jimmy Choo.

“We’ve transitioned into a lifestyle luxury brand, and it seemed like the next natural step for us,” Tamara Mellon, co-founder and chief creative officer of Jimmy Choo, told WWD at a London event to launch the fragrance. “Fragrance is such an important accessory for women — I think it will have a very broad reach. Our customer is every woman.”

The juice, three years in the making, was created by Olivier Polge of International Flavors & Fragrances, and it’s a fruity chypre with green top notes, as well as exotic tiger orchid, sweet toffee and Indonesian patchouli notes.

“You have to — fragrance is something that’s very… personal,” said Mellon, to a room full of beauty editors at the New York launch event, where she revealed that her favorites as a teenager included Opium and Anaïs Anaïs. “I love the smell of green fresh notes, they’re in the top notes of our fragrance. I like things that are sensual, so that’s how we came in with the patchouli.”

“We wanted to create something that was an object of desire, that you would be proud to have on show,” said Mellon of the Murano-glass-inspired perfume bottle. She has a history of using the Italian material for chandeliers in some of the first Jimmy Choo stores.
