Did you know that May is the unofficial start of wedding season? Even though my own wedding isn’t until October, that doesn’t mean there won’t be other celebrations over the warm spring and summer months. In fact, both Jeremy and I have cousins getting married between now and our own wedding! I’ll admit that the thought of those multiple events, and the prep that goes with them, has my head spinning a bit already. Just being a guest at numerous weddings can be taxing! Luckily, Church & Dwight has four great tips for a stress-free wedding season:
About two weeks ago, Philips Sonicare challenged my boys and I to change our smiles with the help of the new Sonicare DiamondClean adult toothbrush and the Sonicare for Kids power toothbrush. In just two weeks, the brushes promised to improve our smiles and as a family that’s had plenty of dental concerns already, that was a claim we couldn’t wait to put to the test!
My boys loved the Sonicare for Kids toothbrush from the very first use and with its kid-friendly design, it’s easy to see why! Since young children can have trouble brushing properly, using an electric toothbrush just makes sense since the brush provides a much more thorough clean. My boys had already been using electric toothbrushes but I could tell from the way they reacted to this one that the feeling was completely different. Both boys spent quite a bit of time giggling about how much the toothbrush tickled!
But that tickling is helping to remove up to 75% more plaque than a manual toothbrush with 500 brush strokes per second, and so as much as Zackary and Benjamin enjoyed the new toothbrush, I think I enjoyed it even more because every time they brushed their teeth, I knew they were getting the best clean possible. And with a built-in timer that gradually increases to the two-minute mark to help kids learn how long to brush, I knew they weren’t rushing the job either. [Read more…]
There’s something about a bright white smile that just improves appearance instantly, but whiting teeth at the dentist is a huge hassle and home whitening can take up a lot of time. Smile Brilliant is a company that specializes in professional level at-home whitening and the company’s LED whitening kit is designed for people that want to whiten their smile quickly and easily. I recently received the LED Teeth Whitening Kit to review and I couldn’t wait to see how it worked.
The set contains a whitening pen, a tiny application brush, silicone protective trays and the LED light. Using the system is simple. Simply paint the whitening gel, which uses enamel-safe hydrogen peroxide, onto the teeth, using the tiny brush for small areas between teeth. Then put the protective trays over the teeth to hold the gel in place, turn on the LED light and place it in the mouth for a minimum of twenty minutes. Whitening is said to be noticeable after as little as one week of use.
