Natural White 5 Minute Tooth Whitening System-Review

Happy Sunday! First let me say I’m a big bargain shopper.  I have found a lot of great products at Dollar Tree.  On my last visit, I bought various teeth whitening products and candy.  If you have ever been to a dollar store, they have really fresh candy, just saying.

I purchased Natural White 5 Minute Tooth Whitening System for a whopping dollar at my local Dollar Tree. I just saw the same item for sale on Amazon for $5.50.  It comes with a duplex mouth tray and a tube of whitening gel that is .75 ounces.  When I first showed it to my husband he was convinced it must have contained lead or something since I got it from the dollar store. Not only did it not contain lead, but it’s made in the United States.

This stuff works great! I’ve got quite a few crowns so I wouldn’t spend the money to have a professional bleaching done at the dentist’s office. Plus my dentist charges $300!

I would have to say I’ve lightened my teeth several shades. It works fine even with me having all of these crowns.  If you are expecting paper white teeth, it’s not going to happen, besides on what planet does that look natural????

One thing about items purchased from Dollar Tree, if you see something you like, buy them all. Well, no try it first, then go back and buy all of them. Seriously, they usually only have items like this once. I snatched up about five of them on my last trip.

Oh, and don’t forget the candy!

Philosophy The Ultimate Fix for Eyes- Review

Happy Easter!  I have to laugh when I see studies for different skin care products that use really small groups. This eye cream by Philosophy was tested on a whopping 31 women. I was really excited to try this when I saw it advertised at Ulta.

It made some hefty promises, “after 12 days, 97% saw a creaseless eye area that looked ironed flat.” Um, hell to the no.

Next, “after one month crepiness reduced by 94%.” Double hell to the no! “After 1 week skin looks smoother and more youthful.”  Liar lair pants on fire!

Here is more hype: “In 31 days hollowness reduced by 64%”. I wonder what kind of drugs these testers were using, and where can I get some.

This eye cream which is .5 ounces and cost $68USD is a complete and utter waste of money.  I’ve been using it twice daily as directed for over a month and have not seen any improvement. I would have returned it, but when I bought it, I had returned some items so I spent $45 USD, which was $45 way too much for an eye cream that didn’t produce any results.

I’ve used Philosophy products in the past, and was happy with the results.  Don’t waste your money on this.

ABCO Sport Knee Support Strap Band Review

Happy Sunday! Yesterday we celebrated St. Patrick’s day here in Southeast Wisconsin.  We were meeting friends and knew it was going to be a long night of partying.

I had a partial knee replacement almost five months ago.  My recovery seems to be incredibly slow.  It’s frustrating as I’m very active, and my knee is cramping my style.

I found this ABCO Sport Knee Support on Amazon for $9.99 USD. They are available in three colors.  I purchased black. This is an amazing knee support.  It’s slim and can’t be detected under clothes.  As I’m rebuilding strength in my leg, this knee support has given me the ability to almost do my normal activities.  It’s really helpful when going up stairs.

The price on the company’s website is $17, so at $9.99, it’s a bargain.

NYX Studio Perfect Photo-Loving Primer Review

Hello and happy Sunday!  This primer has been around for awhile, but I just discovered it recently.  NYX Studio Perfect Photo-Loving Primer at Ulta for $12.99 USD.  I had a coupon so I paid $$9.89 USD.  I’ve used Smash Box Photo Finish primer in the past, and this is a total dupe. The Smash Box primer is $36 USD for one ounce, the NYX is one ounce as well.

I’ve tried many primers in the past, but this NYX goes on super smooth and wears all day.  I don’t wear much in the way of foundation, other than concealer under my eyes and around my nose. It really blurs lines, pores, etc.

Clairol Root Touch Up Powder Review

Wow!  Clairol has done it again. This new Clairol Root Touch Up available at Ulta rocks!  I purchased this today and am in love.  I use Clairol Root Touch up permanent color on a regular basis.  This contains .07 ounces and comes with a decent brush.  You can use this on your eyebrows as well. It was $9.99 USD but I had a $2.00 off coupon and a Ulta coupon for $1.90, so I ended up paying $6.09 USD.

In the past I’ve used Joan Rivers Great Hair Day and at the time thought it worked great.  This new Clairol product is different because not only does it not stain your scalp, but it has tiny flecks of gold in the powder.  Other products I’ve used were always very flat. The box says you can get 40-60 applications, and it washes out with shampoo.

As I’ve gotten older my hair has gotten thinner. It’s really hard as a woman to watch your hair turn to crap.  Menopause has really taken a toll on my body, skin, hair, etc. FU menopause!

I got blonde and it works great on my dark blonde hair.  I have some thin spots on the top of my head and this covers them up.  As women, a lot of our confidence is tied to our hair. I use to have such nice hair, now, not so much. I’ve tried wigs and hair pieces, but it’s too much work.

Clairol has been making hair color since 1956. Leave it up to them to make such a awesome hair touch up!

Gold Bond Ultimate Neck & Chest Firming Cream Review

Okay, I’m the first to admit that when I think of Gold Bond products, I think of  body powder for sweaty dudes. As usual I had a $1.50 coupon for this product, so I thought what the heck. Gold Bond Neck & Chest Cream at Walmart for $9.97 USD.  You get 2 ounces of product and I’ve been using it once a day for over three months.  You are suppose to use it twice a day, but there isn’t an SPF, so I’m just using it at night.

Here’s the description of the product:

Gold Bond Ultimate Neck & Chest Firming Cream. There are 7 intensive moisturizes. It is body treatment cream. Visibly improves firmness & texture. The product is clinically tested, proven effective, fragrance free and dermatologist tested. Advanced hydration blend draws in moisture to improve texture.

  • Neck & Chest Cream, Firming
  • New. 7 intensive moisturizers. Body treatment cream. Visibly improves firmness & texture. Clinically tested. Proven effective. Fragrance free. Dermatologist tested. Physically different than other skin on your body, the delicate neck and chest area is one of the first to show signs of aging. As one of the most exposed areas of the body, the neck and chest are highly susceptible to damage caused by the environment and UV rays, making it age faster. Also, over time our skin naturally loses its youthful firmness and texture as lipids, collagen, and hyaluronic acid, a natural hydration component within skin, start to decline-aging its appearance. Firming Neck & Chest Cream is uniquely formulated with a blend of key ingredients to deliver intense, long-lasting hydration and improve the appearance of skin’s firmness, texture, and elasticity for more supple, youthful-looking skin. Get Visible Results: Immediately: 82% saw softer smoother skin; Day 1: 85% saw improvement in skin texture; 2 Weeks: 97% had visibly firmer, more taut skin; 6 Weeks: 88% had improvement in skin elasticity. Ultimate lotion. Ultimate skin. High-performance firming complex. Advance Hydration Blend: draws in moisture to improve texture. Salicylic Acid (BHA): exfoliates to help reveal a younger-looking complexion. Stress Response Proteins: boost skin’s moisture retention to improve smoothness. Clinically tested. Proven effective. Increases elasticity. Improves texture. Visibly firms. Boosts hydration. Exclusive formula. The makers of Gold Bond do not manufacture private label brands.

Since it’s winter here in Southeast Wisconsin, I’m covered up most of the time. I happened to notice when I wore a scoop neck top recently that my neck and upper chest looked pretty darn good. The reason I noticed was because I could tell where I stopped putting the cream on my chest. OMG!  What a difference! The chest area I missed doesn’t look so hot and the rest, wow! This stuff is amazing! My neck is less crepey as well.

I’ve tried so many neck creams over the years, and spent a ton of money in the process. This cream is $5 an ounce.  I hope like heck Gold Bond never stops making this great product.

Given I’m almost 60, I would say this makes quite a difference. My skin is much smoother and spot free.
