Herbacin Make-up Remover Review

For a long time now, I've been using make-up remover wipes to take off my make-up at night. It's been easy and convenient, but it's not always the best choice for my skin type. I wanted to get back to using a make-up remover that wouldn't cause me to tug Read more

Supersmile Professional Whitening System

I was head over heels in love with my Supersmile Professional Whitening from the very first brush.  Normally whitening systems, trays, strips, etc. always leave my teeth feeling almost painfully sensitive, but I experienced absolutely zero sensitivity with this system. The whitening system I purchased came with the Professional Whitening Toothpaste and Professional Whitening Accelerator.  You just use a pearl sized drop of each on a dry toothbrush and then brush for two minutes and that is literally it.  My teeth were instantly smoother which is due to the gentle dissolution of the protein pellicle (a thin layer of protein that forms on the tooth surface, and to which plaque, bacteria, and of course, stains adhere) on my teeth.  My teeth definitely looked cleaner and brighter right away…I kid you not, I saw the difference immediately and just to make sure I didn’t imagine whiter teeth, grabbed a shade guide to compare and my teeth were indeed two shades whiter after the first brush.  I do think my teeth would have been even whiter had I chosen to purchase the Activating Rods (which enhances whitening results).  Read more
