I had heard good things about a particular drugstore nail polish, and so I decided to go pick it up and give drugstore nailpolishes another try. I'm usually disappointed by drugstore nail polishes, however this one proved that good things really do come in small packages.

Another product that has proven to me, in the last month, that good things come in small packages is the eos lip balms. I've become a total junkie and purchased all 4 of the ball shaped lip balms and 1 of the stick shaped chapstick type products from them.
eos ball shaped lip balm (available in summer fruit, honeydew melon, lemon, &mint)
they leave lips incredibly smooth...
I may have to try their shaving cream soon
Evolution of smooth lip balm has become a permanent member of my purse =]

We all covet that bright white smile, but who wants to pay to get their teeth whitened in a dental office? not me! Several companies out there have products marketed towards those who want to get their smile brighter and whiter, and I have tried one of them! Here are some pictures and some opinions I formed along the way =]
This is what the packaging looks like....it runs somewhere between $20 and $25
Inside the package is a tray that you will have boil water for...
You boil water and then dip the mouth guard looking tray into the water for just a few seconds
you then place it in your mouth and suck in, in order to mold it to your bite.
There is a top and bottom piece
Then you will open an ampule of whitening product and place it in the trays (the directions say you will need 1 per tray per session, however I only needed one for each session, and I had 4 left over)
After you have put the product into the tray, you will wear it for 20 minutes, take it out for 10, and then repeat the process of put the whitening formula in the tray and wear it again.
The whole kit takes 2 hours to complete.
This product absolutely works, however, like with most products there are positives and negatives
It was nice to have a perfect fit tray for my teeth, and I liked that I had 4 ampules left in order to do the process again in a couple of weeks.
I don't like that it take 2 hours. You don't have the luxury you would have with some other 30 minute or less white strip types of products.
Also, there is a little bit of gum sensitivity following the 2 hours. However, for me this did not last.
I would purchase this product again, and use it.
