How much red do you own? How much do you wear? Use? Writing this post I have come to realize that red, apparently, is my favorite color. From the clothes and accessories that I wear, to the makeup that I use, to the color of the tube of my new favorite toothpaste, red is everywhere in my life.

I have to be honest here for a minute, being in college, late nights, doing homework or catching up with my favorite show, sometimes I fall asleep with all my makeup still on. Which also means I don’t brush my teeth at night either. And then I have to lie to my dentist… So I knew that to get myself out of this rut I needed a motivation, some incentive, that I would respond to. And the easiest fix was switching the toothpaste. Colgate® Optic White® Express White Toothpaste provides an easy and fast way for whiter teeth fast. It contains the professionally recommended ingredient hydrogen peroxide to whiten faster.

I got my tooth paste at Walmart, they have a really nice end cap display with all the products which is very easy to find.

Crest 3D White Professional Effects Whitestrips Challenge ft. my husband!

If You’re Not Whitening, You’re Yellowing.”

Disclosure: Crest 3D Whitestrips were sent to me free of charge through Influenster. To learn more, please check out the link.

Poor Sam… It all started 10 days ago, after we came back from Fargo and I received this in the mail:

These are no ordinary Whitestrips boys and girls, these are Advanced Seal, which means you can drink water while wearing them!

Here is the sad thing though, back when I was in college I used to whiten my teeth using Crest White Strips, and I did it a lot. I seriously think I overdid it! My teeth became super sensitive (I can only use certain kinds of toothpaste and mouthwash now), though they are still pretty white! I guess something good did come out of these.

It took me a few days to realize that even though I can’t use them, Sam can! To my surprise, he gladly agreed to whiten his teeth!

I do apologize for lighting in some of those pictures! But I hope you’ll be able to see the difference! I can definitely see it, and so can Sam, and plus he still has 10 more days to go!

Well you get the idea! I’ll definitely post again in 10 days, after the course has been complete! I know it’s a rather pricey product! We saw it for $43.99 at Target today. But the cheaper versions work just as well. And I know that Crest offers a lot of mail in rebates, or you can get ExtraBucks for buying WhiteStips at CVS!

I definitely recommend the WhiteStrips, unless you have very very sensitive teeth. Even though instructions say that whitening won’t harm your teeth, any kind of whitening harms your teeth! So in the end definitely talk to your dentist and make a decision!

Cheers,

Zhenya
