Hi friends! Oh-my-goodness, this last year has been a whirlwind! Between taking my business full time, all of the weddings (including our own!), and traveling, it has been hard to set aside time for a little self-care. I am a huge advocate for making time for yourself, whether that means reading a book, getting a facial or enjoying a bubble bath. Whatever gives you time to relax, unwind, and reflect on everything going on in your life. If you are shouting AMEN! Then keep reading! Trust me, there is a giveaway at the end that you don’t want to miss!
* This post was sponsored by Smile Brilliant, however, all opinions, ideas and pictures are my own. I know you are going to love it!
Now, if you follow me on Instagram, you probably saw that I was recently contacted by Smile Brilliant and asked to review their teeth whitener. Most emails like this that I get, I immediately delete, but this one really caught my eye because I love having white teeth and up until now, I have always just used Crest White Strips. I have never had the opportunity to get custom fit trays because honestly, they were always way out of my budget at the dentist’s office. Once I realized that Smile Brilliant offers custom trays, with all the teeth whitening product, for UNDER $200 – I knew I needed to give it a try!
Both Manuel and I leading up to the wedding tried to use whitening strips but I have issues with teeth sensitivity and Manuel hated that they would always slip around on his teeth. After I received my custom trays, it was super easy to start whitening. I just assumed that I would have the intense sensitivity (because I always do when I whiten) however, I was shocked that I literally had none! Not only that but as someone who is consistently whitening her teeth, I was really impressed by how much whiter they got!
And because the trays were custom, I was able to whiten with whatever I was doing. Typically, I whitened while I was working and I even had a few skype calls with the trays in and none of my clients noticed haha! Or when I was relaxing on the couch in the morning was also a great time for me to fit it into my busy schedule – Charlie certainly appreciated this as we were able to cuddle longer than normal!
I am whitening in these pictures – can you tell? Crazy right?! Oh and yes, that is my permanent place for a coffee cup – I can’t make it through the day without it (which is why my teeth need to be whitened!)
This was the product that I first received and the paste that I used to make the impressions – which was a little intimidating at first but it turned out to be surprisingly simple.
I was sent four syringes of teeth whitener and four of the desensitizing gel, and they have lasted so much longer than I thought they would. Because you just need a thin line of product every time that you whiten, I have only used 2 syringes each. I have whitened about 9 times- which means that I can get about 4 whitenings out of each syringe.
