nightly routine

hey babes, happy spring, finally! not sure how much more of this cold weather I can take *insert eye roll here*.img_3847

so, if you’re like me, then your nightly routine probably changes every few months. if it doesn’t then you’re lucky. it seems like after three months of the same routine my face is just like “okay, cool and?” and it becomes unaffected by it.

with that said, I thought I would share my current night routine. first off, make up remover. that is one thing that doesn’t change because I swear by the Neutrogena remover wipes. I really like wipe removers because they feel less oily than the liquid removers. the Neutrogena wipes are my img_3848favourite because other wipes I’ve tried have felt really rough on the eye area and end up making my skin super red. so I will always 10x out of 10 recommend these.

after removing the make up I take a cotton ball and Formula 10.0.06 Totally Clean Pore Cleanser, which is essential an acne/blackhead treatment and removes any oil that the wipes left behind. and I go over my whole face with a Nip+Fab Bee Sting toning pad.

c8640f5f-273f-4058-ae43-4336b590aaabnow this is just my basic every night thing some nights are a bit different because I don’t exfoliate every night because I usually do that in the morning before make up.

after toning, I have been using a 5 minute eye mask from Patchology as well as their FlashMasque. I usually put on the eye mask first, since its the quickest.

before the actual facial mask I go ahead and get my teeth 3d28fcfc-7986-4e27-aaf6-8a984d40c0c2whitening trays together so I can whiten while the mask is on. if you haven’t seen my older posts, I have been using Smile Brilliant (home teeth whitening) for teeth whitening, and I seriously LOVE it. so I put my trays and and plop the mask on and just chill, do some school work, BLOG. lol.

since I will be collabing with Smile Brilliant for another whitening kit giveaway, I will drop a few links for you to check out if your interested in the giveaway; Things to know before whitening & How-to video.img_3849

I usually leave the trays on longer than the masks so after the mask is done I just kind of roam the house taking care of random things before bed. then viola!

Smile Brilliant Whitnening!

 

Hello my little gumdrops :pkfru7986

Today I wanted to tell you guys about something I have been using for the last few weeks. You may have seen me talk about it on social media here and there.

I have been using Smile Brilliant’s teeth whitening kit. (I also linked it up for you guys, so you can feel free to check it out yourself!) Now being into beauty and make up, as I am, I am also really big on keeping my teeth white.

yhfb4473Let me just go ahead and say I have tried a lot of  things: whitening strips, oil pulling, etc. Nothing has worked so fast and so easily than the whitening gel from Smile Brilliant.

So basically, you can order a full kit, which comes with molds to make a custom fitted tray for your teeth, whitening gel, and desensitizing gel.

You mix a tub of white paste and blue paste (quickly) and place it onto the mold tray and bite down so that it gets a perfect form of your teeth. They send three of each, incase you do accidently mess up one. Let me just say the molding process was super messy, there was drool everywhere! But surely you guys can do it better than I did, lol. I also managed to get lipstick all over the molding, which I sent a note apologizing for!

After that, you fill out the little card that comes with it, put it in its packaging and mail it off to get your trays made! Once the trays come in (with a cute little case for it!) you can start using your whitening gel! You just put a small line of whitening gel into your tray, slide it on and let it sit from 30 minutes to 3 hours. img_2025

Helpful tip: build your way up to a img_2026higher time, just incase you feel sensitivity. Then you put some desensitizing gel into the tray for 15-20 minutes, and ta-da.

I am not a coffee person, but I know a lot of you guys are, so this could be something you might be interested in. Or just for you guys who just like keeping a white smile, like me, lol.

My favourite thing about this way of whitening is that its super convenient and because the trays stay on. If you have ever tried whitening strips, then you know how annoying

they can be and can slide around and slip off. Or teeth whitening where you have to go to the dentist and fork out hundreds of dollars for trays and whitening.

I seriously spend my time whitening when I blog, do coursework or cleaning. I just feel like I am getting so much done that way.

I totally recommend giving it a try, especially if everything else didn’t work out for you like it didn’t for me.

Also before trying, I thought I would drop you a little article. It basically just kind of goes over a couple of things to consider (like how much gel, if you should get desensitizing gel, etc) before buying teeth whitening products: 7 things to know before buying

Also to be helpful, I am going to link you to the video I watched when I was making my molds! Kelli Tanner:How I Whiten

Also, keep an eye out for my next post because it will contain the rules to enter in a giveaway for your very own Smile Brilliant teeth whitening kit, courtesy of Smile Brilliant and I!

I am currently out of state for the holidays but the giveaway rules WILL be post by Friday at the latest, so keep your eyes open!!!
