Product Review: 3D Crest Glamorous Whitestrips

I have been using the 3D Crest Glamorous Whitestrips for over 2 weeks now, and I can see a clear difference in the colour of my teeth. I have previously mentioned how I would love to have my teeth whitened again. I had a teeth whitening procedure done a few years ago, and it completely changed my smile for the better. So I was thinking of having a top-up procedure done, but not had the opportunity to do that, so I was very happy to have the opportunity to try out the 3D Crest Glamorous Whitestrips.

 

 

I must confess, I was a bit sceptical at first. I have used so many dental products with promises of a whiter smile only for them to perform way below expectation. In most cases, I noticed no difference at all, so I although I was happy to try out these whitening strips, I did have my hopes up.

The 3D Crest Glamorous Whitestrips formally known as Crest Advanced Vivid, is designed to whiten natural teeth 25X better than a leading teeth whitening toothpaste.

 

 

The pack also included a pack of Oral B Glide 3D White Whitening + Scope Flavour Floss.

 

 

Here are my thoughts –

 

PROS

  1. I love the compact packaging. It is so easy to pop the Whitestrips satchets and Floss pack in a bag.
  2. The Whitestrips are very easy to use. My pack came with 28 strips for 14 treatments(1 upper and 1 lower). I use the strips once a day for 30 minutes. They are easy to put on and take off.
  3. The Whitestrips work. I started to notice a difference after 4 treatments, and my teeth is now a lot whiter since I completed the 14 treatment.
  4. The Whitestrips have an advanced seal technology that provides a strong firm grip.
  5. The Whitestrips are very comfortable. I can go about my day as normal when I have them on. I can talk and even drink water with them on.
  6. The Oral B Glide 3D White Whitening + Scope Flavour Floss performs amazingly well. It gets rid of any food stuck in between the teeth and it leaves a fresh breath.

 

 

CONS

  1. I experienced a bit of teeth sensitivity while using the strips, which is perfectly normal when using a teeth whitening product. It disappeared after a few days.

 

 

I would recommend the 3D Crest Glamorous Whitestrips to anyone in need of a brighter smile. It is a very effective and convenient way of whitening your teeth. A trial will convince you!

4 top tips to keep a great complexion as you approach 30

Although ageing slows down the collagen production that keeps our skin looking healthy and young, there are a few ways that you can help to slow this natural process down. Here are 4 top tips that will make sure your complexion stays fresh as you begin to approach the big 3 0.

 

 

  1. Moisturise twice a day

The older we are, the harder it is for our skin to retain mositure. This is why it’s vital to moisturise your skin in the morning and at night. For your morning routine, use an SPF moisturiser under your primer before you apply your makeup. This will lock in moisture throughout the day. At night, it’s best to use a thicker cream as it is during this time that your skin repairs itself. As you are moisturising, ensure you massage your face as this will boost the production of collagen, which will make the skin look plumper and stimulate the lymph glands that help you achieve clearer skin.

 

  1. Be friends with SPF

You would have probably heard how important it is to keep your skin protected from the sun. Sun damage is the single biggest factor in premature ageing and leaving your skin unprotected can lead to problems such as hyperpigmentation, wrinkling, sagging and poor skin tone. There are a lot of foundations and moisturisers on the market that contain an element of SPF which means that you don’t have to apply a thick layer of sunscreen to your face every day.

 

  1. Eat the right foods

It’s certainly true that your diet directly affects the health of your skin. Eat foods that are rich in nutrients and amino acids and, if you haven’t already, introduce fibrous produce such as kale, sprouts and apples into your diet. Reduce your alcohol intake and cut back on the amount of sugar you consume as this can cause premature ageing through a process known as glycation. During glycation, excess sugar in the blood attaches itself to lipids, nucleic acids and proteins which advance the ageing process and lead to wrinkly skin. You can also pick up these nutrients through certain skincare products. Vegan skincare products in particular often include many natural ingredients such as chlorophyll, kale and maca root extracts that deliver essential vitamins to your skin.

 

  1. Take care of your eyes

The skin around our eyes is the thinnest and delicate on our face, and it is often the area that shows ageing the most. Keeping that part of the skin hydrated is important and can be done by using a serum or eye cream before bed. As you sleep, the formula sinks into the skin and decreases the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Plus, a good quality eye cream can protect the area from further damage, especially if it includes natural ingredients such as cucumber, arnica and ginseng, that can instantly hydrate and reduce puffiness.

Product Review – Viktor&Rolf Flowerbomb Bloom Eau De Toilette

I had the opportunity to try out the new Viktor&Rolf Flowerbomb Bloom Eau de Toilette, and I was blown away by the lovely fragrance.

I am a huge fan of Viktor&Rolf perfumes; I have used all of them, and reviewed a few on Fashion and Style Police, so I was super excited when this Flowerbomb Bloom bottle dropped on my doorstep. This new fragrance is known as the ‘Bloom of Spring’ is defined as fruity floriental, and I think the timing of the launch couldn’t be anymore perfect!

Flowerbomb Bloom was developed from our desire to create an airy fragrance with a burst of fresh flowers, one that was synonymous with a bloom of spring – Viktor&Rolf.

The new eau de toilette continues the iconic addiction of the Flowerbomb floral bouquet, adding in a breath of fresh air with a burst of fresh spring flowers to bring a fresh, sparkling and sensuous tone.

Here are my thoughts on this fragrance:

PROS

  1. It has a fresh, sparkling, juicy fragrance, which smells divine, and slightly lighter than the original Flowerbomb, so great for the spring/summer months.
  2. The fragrance is quite long-lasting for an Eau de Toilette. It stayed on for hours.
  3. I love the glamorous bottle. It is the shape of a diamond grenade, and features the trademark – wax Viktor&Rolf seal. It looks so pretty on my dressing table.
  4. The fragrance is quite memorable, like the other Viktor&Rolf fragrances I have tried.
  5. It can be purchased in most beauty shops, so it is easily accessible.

CONS

None.

I can’t fault this Viktor&Rolf Flowerbomb Bloom Eau De Toilette. It is a great spring fragrance to try this season, and I recommend to anyone in need of a new airy scent. This is definitely the scent of the season.It is an explosion of fruits and flowers!

You can grab a 30ml bottle for £45, 50ml bottle for £57 and 100ml bottle for £80.

What are your thoughts? Have you tried any Viktor&Rolf fragrance?
