To be honest, I hate mouthwashes. But I’m a good girl, use the strong stuff Listerine everyday although really hate it. Mouthwash products have evolved over time into three generations. The first generation of products kills the germs in your mouth, providing only short term relief. The second generation went one step further and not only kills germs, but eliminates odors as well. Still, these products only provide fresh breath for up to one hour. Well, I got a sample of this new kind of mouthwash that is clinically proven to provide fresh breath for up to 24 hours with twice daily use. It’s called SmartMouth. It’s the only product in the third generation of mouthwashes which not only kill germs and eliminates odors, but also prevents those odors from returning within a 12 hour period. Which means you’ll even wake up without MORNING BREATH! Unbelievable, isn’t it? I was skeptical to the say the least. So I had to try it. I thought to get that kind of result, you’d have to go through some complicated procedure. But it’s pretty standard and simple. It comes with two bottles of solution. You mix the two solutions together in a cup, then rinse vigorously for 30 – 60 seconds, gargle and spit out. I got the mint flavor. It’s absolutely refreshing with no burning sensation. I told my guy I’d test it on him in the morning and to brace himself. He was pretty scared, lol. But it actually worked! He couldn’t believe it. I had no morning breath. How does it all work?
“SmartMouth uses a patented, dual-solution technology that requires two active ingredients to be kept separate until just prior to rinsing. This insures that SmartMouth is freshly activated with each use to provide unmatched, long-term fresh breath. SmartMouth’s oxidizer in Solution 1, like second generation mouthwash products, eliminates existing bad breath when you rinse. But unlike generation one products, it does not kill germs (that’s a good thing!). SmartMouth’s zinc ion technology, created by the combination of Solution 1 and Solution 2, neutralizes the germs, preventing them from producing new bad breath gases for long term fresh breath. One rinse in the morning prevents bad breath all day, and one rinse at night and you can wake up every day without morning breath.”
SmartMouth mouthwash is available in mint and cinnamon flavors. It can be purchased at all of the major retail chains such as Wal-Mart, Walgreens, Target, CVS, etc. It can also be ordered online at drugstore.com (only $10.99). Try it and you’ll be impressed.
Congratulations to Jennifer from Toronto! She’s our lucky winner. Please keep us posted on how CelluScience works in getting rid of cellulite! I’m very intriqued.
Thanks to everybody who entered. Stay tuned to more giveaways coming up soon!!
Darlings, we have a couple of exciting giveaways coming up. Keep your eyes peeled!
The summer months are quickly approaching. We are doing our hardest to get our skin and body toned and smooth for the pretty sundresses and sexy shorts that we’ll be wearing, right? Any of you worried about that pesky cellulite? I know I definitely will after gaining a ton of weight and hopefully shedding it next year. We need a solution (besides excising and a healthy diet)! So today I have a very exciting beauty product for one lucky reader – a three-month supply of CelluScience! CelluScience is a clinical-strength, anti-cellulite pill made of all natural ingredients (Grape Seed, Ginkgo biloba, Olive extract, Fish Oil) that helps to prevent and reduce the appearance of cellulite. CelluScience works in three different ways. First, it helps maintain a healthy blood flow in the arteries, veins, and micro arteries, fostering optimum activity of the lymphatic vessels. Next, it helps keep a strong cell metabolism, helping to avoid “under cutaneous/trapped” fat. Finally, it helps maintain strong connective fibers. All which help to reduce the look of cellulite in under 90 days.
In addition, CelluScience is a powerful free-radical scavenger. It reduces the effects of free radicals in the blood lipids by 36%, meaning this is a powerful anti-aging product as well. The studies were especially promising with smokers.
More information on CelluScience can be found here: http://www.santicatv.com. And you can read the FAQ page.
To enter, just leave your name and email in the comment (your email will be kept private). One entry per person. U.S. and Canadian residents only please. The contest is open until next Wednesday, June 10, 11:59pmET. A random winner will be drawn. Good luck to everybody!!Filed under Contests/giveaways, Fitness/Health | Comments (17)
My guy says I’m always buying weird things on eBay. He’s right. These are my latest eBay purchases, Waist & Tummy slimming shaper and Arm slimming shaper. I didn’t need them, but I was curious, I just bought them for shits and giggles. These are said to slim the tummy and arms because they contain Capsicum Tincture, which I understand is hot pepper extract. I don’t even know if these work. Apparently they are popular in Asia. I’m willing to give them a shot since I’ll be in my bikini a lot soon. Hope the hot pepper doesn’t burn my skin. I’ll report back with news of either slimmer arms or rashy tummy soon.Filed under eBay, Fitness/Health | Comment (0)
If you want to get a ton of anti-oxidants into your body instantly, you might want to try Dr. Brandt Skincare Anti-Oxidant Water Booster – Blueberry 2 oz ($35). You add a drop of this blueberry flavored water booster to your water and get the same amount of anti-oxidants from 15 cups of green tea! I am a green tea fiend. But I have yet to drink 15 cups of green tea in a day! Believe me I have tried, I ended up going to the bathroom a LOT, lol. If you are already drinking green (or black, red, white) tea daily and taking multi-vitamin pills, this is a convenient way to add more anti-oxidants. A girl can never have enough anti-oxidants to have youthful-looking skin, a stronger immune system, and overall body health. This is also available in the original and pomegranate flavors.Filed under Fitness/Health, Skincare | Comments (2)
Even though we are still having so much snow here, but summer’s not that far away if I really think about it. Wanna get a jump on getting your body bikini ready? Join the Clarins Summer Slimming Program! I haven’t worked out one bit this winter. Like my guy says, I have been hibernating. I plan on dusting off my sneakers and stepper soon after we move into our new house. But I’m a lazy bum, if there’s a lotion out there that I can rub on myself in hopes of smooth tight legs, I will do it. Clarins’ anti-cellulite lotions have dominated the market for many years now. My best friend at work used it the whole time she was pregnant and a year after she had the baby. Her legs are dimple free. I suspect her healthy diet had a lot to do with that too. But hey, if you can get extra help from this, why not? Don’t expect to lose weight or inches using these. But if you are looking to tighten, tone, and smooth out the orange-peel thighs, definitely try them. In addition, I have a secret weapon too, drink loads of green tea, the loose leaf kind (I don’t trust the tea bag variety, you don’t know what kind of quality of tea was used to put in the bag). Green tea’s like the garage cleaner for your body.

Happy New Year everybody!! A new year for a new beginning! Do you have any new year’s resolutions? I have a few every year and they are pretty much the same ones that I need to work on.
– Eat healthier for my overall health, especially for my skin and hair. Listen to my parents and follow Chinese food therapy, and eat things like goji berries, bird’s nest soup, royal jelly and many other weird-sounding things. They don’t taste good but they give you plump smooth skin and shiny hair over time.
– Exercise more. God knows I have enough fitness equipment and exercise videos at home to use.
– Be more diligent about my beauty routine. Get facials, manis and pedis or do my own facials regularly, stay on top of throughout the year, not just once in a while when I feel like it and then let it lag behind.
– Shop more! I mean, shop more discriminatingly and less impulsively, especially when it comes to sales. This one rule — if you can’t wear it with anything in your closet, don’t buy it — I should apply more.
– Spend less time on eBay and more time with my family.
What are your new year’s resolutions? Please share.Filed under Fitness/Health | Comment (1)
So I was complaining about how dry my office is now that the heat is on full blast, and look what I found. Adorable humidifiers! These cool mist ultrasonic humidifiers offer refreshing air to dry rooms, which will help make the air much more comfortable to breathe, and help your skin retain the moisture better. I know moms are probably buying these for their children’s rooms, but they are so cute I really want one, it’s gong to look great on my desk 🙂 All available at drugstore.comCute things, Fitness/Health | Comment (1)
While we are talking about gorgeous heels…
Gel Heel Appeal by Apara (2 pair pack) $10.
This awesome foot cushion for your heels is the answer to keeping our feet comfortably planted in our heels all day and preventing them from slipping out. I have this exact problem! With some pumps my feet constantly slip out. I’ve given away many a pair pumps because of this. These cushions are made of silicone and uber comfortable, and machine-washable. This is really a small investment to make.
Apara also has Gel Fete des Feet (1 pair pack) $15 and Gel Steppies (1 pair pack) $10. The Fete des Feet are for heel and arch cushioning and support. These are incredibly important if you’re on your feet all day in your heels. Your poor arch and heel need help relieve the huge amount of pressure they endure all day long. The Steppies are for ball of the foot cushioning and to prevent feet from sliding forward, which is equally important, ’cause you know that makes excrutiatingly painful toes at the end of the day.
Darlings, get these and you’ll look and feel sexy and confident in your heels 🙂Filed under Accessories, Fitness/Health | Comments (2)
