Luster Premium White Pro Light Dental Whiten System Review

Sent for review. Contains affiliate links. 

When your teeth are the slightest bit yellow, pinks and reds go wonky with a quickness and throw off your whole look. You know what I mean? Smooth, clean, bright teeth boost your confidence, even if you aren't worried about your lipstick.

I've tried quite a few kits and, of course, the best results have come from what I've purchased from a dentist. I still get some sensitivity from those kits, so I have only used them sparingly. Whitening strips all seem to kill my teeth with sensitivity for days. Granular polishes are terrible for your enamel (and probably for the water supply). So what's left?

I was sent the Luster Premium White Pro Light Dental Whiten System to check out and see if it delivered. Basically, you clean your teeth, swish some mouth wash, apply a serum to the teeth and stick a blue light in your mouth for 2 minutes. Luster Premium White Pro Light Dental Whitening Kit claims to whiten teeth quickly, with no enamel damage or tooth sensitivity. But is it too good to be true?

Much to my surprise--it totally works! And my sensitive teeth didn't experience any sensitivity, which is amazing. The packaging suggests if you haven't lightened in six months to follow their process ten times. I did exactly that and my teeth got lighter! Two complete shades lighter, to be exact. (According to the enclosed handy color chart!) Now, to be fair, my teeth were already pretty white. And now, they are two shades whiter. So on me, it's not overly dramatic, but I'm really happy!

But, and yes, there is a but, it's a little cumbersome. You have to rinse with mouthwash, apply the serum and then use the light every single to complete one cycle. So if you do this 10 times, the time suggested if you haven't whitened in six months, it's a lot of work.  You swish, apply and wait for 2 minutes TEN TIMES. It took me a full episode of Narcos to get through 10 rounds of whitening.

So yes, this actually works. And it costs less than a box of whitening strips (some of the whitening strips, anyway). You're either going to need to spend a long time in the bathroom or need to bring a spittoon to the living room. Either way, whiter teeth are on the way for $43.99, assuming you're a patient person.

What do you use to whiten your teeth? Tell me what works for you!

Lipstick League: What Fragrance Type Are You?

Question of the Week: What's your go-to fragrance for fall?

I'm not sure my fragrance changes for fall, as I kind of have a signature scent. I rotate between Kai (white florals), Rosie Jane's Leila Lou (pear, jasmine, grass) and Harvey Prince Sincerely ( Meyer Lemon, White Grapefruit, Satsuma Mandarin, Summer Forsythia, Pink Plumeria, Wild Verbena, Tahitian Vanilla, Sensual Musk). What kind of fragrance do you switch to when the seasons change? Clearly, I have a type....what about you?

MITOQ Serum: Real Results, Really Fast.

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of MitoQ. The opinions and text are all mine.

The advancements the smarty science guys are making in the world of skincare is nothing short of amazing. For years, women smoothed Vaseline on their faces and got excited about not having dry skin. Today, MitoQ has figured out a way to literally recharge your cellular batteries (it's the mitochondria!) via some helpful antioxidants that work on a level not previously thought possible.

Five Lippies To Try This Fall

Sent for review. Purchased by me. Contains affiliate links. 

I'm embarrassed by how many lippies I own. Legit embarrassed. And I'm not even considering all of the Mac lippies I depotted and still have (that I've never touched since depotting. I'm fairly certain depotting is code for file and forget).

That said, some are better than the rest. Here are my favorites.

Skincare That Was Good To The Last Drop: Paula's Choice Skincare

Sponsored Post. All opinions are my own. 

Earlier this year, I got the chance to have my skin made over by Paula Begoun, the beauty (and brains!) behind Paula's Choice. Paula's Choice is one of those brands that if I had to use until I couldn't use skincare anymore, I would be perfectly happy. What can I say? The line delivers, the science is solid and it won't break the bank. And get this. I actually got to the bottom of the bottle on several of the products I tried! I'm a blogger. I almost never hit empty on anything.
