9 days until Christmas! 9 days until Christmas! Can you hear the jingle bells? You’ve hopefully heard this a hundred times already this season:
Buddy the Elf knows best! ‘Tis the season for laughing and being merry and jolly and sharing toothy grins and wide smiles from dawk to dusk. Really, what’s there *not* to smile about this time of year!?? No matter the weather, family drama, heartache, or gifting snafus that arise, there’s still the awesome reminder that Christmas is coming.
One of my own favorite features is my smile. Ever since getting those braces off, I’ve just always appreciated a beautiful smile, so I’m particular about dental care and hygiene and making sure the pearly whites are as pearly as possible.
I’m also a sucker for *white* smiles. You guys know far too well…I alternate between coffee and wine like clockwork. Since both of the above are prone to causing yellowing and discoloration and staining of your smile, I’m always hunting down the latest and greatest teeth whitening tips and tricks that won’t break the bank – but work like a charm.
Especially with more intense at-home teeth whitening treatments, I like to space them out to limit any time that chemicals are working their magic. Typically 3-4 times a year, I’ll hit up the latest drugstore treatment for an easy white update – beginning of spring, summertime, and the Christmas season!
I’ve always loved teeth whitening products from Crest, so this holiday season was no different.
The Crest 3D White Whitestrips 1-Hour Express Teeth Whitening Kit is fast-acting (hence “1-Hour Express” – hollah!), so I can throw ’em on right before an event or between meetings without any fuss. Fun fact: I used a 1-Hour Express set right before heading out for what I thought was dinner with J – the night we ended up getting engaged! When you’re looking for an extra bit of sparkle to complete your look and leave you just feeling amazeballs, I really think nothing beats a quick whitening. Convenient, easy, fast…fits right into that #bosslady lifestyle. (;
Crest is having a limited-time offer with Walmart where you can buy one kit at www.walmart.com and get another fo’ *free*! I’m all about that bargain hunting life, so BOGO is right up my alley. One for you, one for that person still left on your list. If you’re not looking to drop hundreds of dollars, I really think Crest does the trick just as well (if not better) – plus they’ve got the same enamel-safe whitening ingredients that dentists use. These 3D 1-Hour Whitestrips in particular can removes *years* of stains in just an hour – which is kinda sorta crazy awesome. They’ve also got an Advanced Seal Technology no-slip grip to stay put on your smile, so you can talk and drink water while you whiten. For a gal like me who talks too much and always has a slippier whitening experience because of it, this is heaven sent.
Like I said…BOGO. I don’t know about you, but this is 8 treatments for the price of 4, and I can’t say no. Plus, you get over $20 in coupons in your kit, which you can use whenever throughout the rest of the year. Thank you, Walmart. (Pick up your packs here).
What’s your favorite teeth whitening tactic?
I’d love to hear what options work – and don’t – for you…let me know in a comment!
