My Teeth Whitening Experience with Premiere Smiles

 

 

I am someone who enjoys 2+ coffees a day and is partial to a couple of glasses of red – Don’t judge, #mumlyf is bloody hard. But because of this, my pearly whites can be a little less than pearly and little more on the stained side of the spectrum. I had been looking into getting my teeth whitened for quite a while, but I wasn’t willing to shell out the mountain of cash for my dentist to do it. I use whitening toothpaste and I have tried the at-home treatments with the little lights that are always so hyped up on Instagram. But in all honesty, I haven’t been able to get the results I desire.

The procedure

The lovely Jess came all the way to Wollongong to take care of my little toothy pegs.  With all her gear in hand, Jess came into my lounge room and was set up in under 5 minutes.  Jess explained the straightforward process of applying gel and sitting back for 20 minutes, 5 times (alternating with the lights), which will leave my teeth sparkling. Really simple and straightforward. The actual application of the gel takes a minute and the rest of the time you are reclined back watching TV.

You may not look all that glamourous (who does with their mouth prised open?) but at least you’re in the comfort of your own home. Jess was super laidback and wasn’t worried at all when I needed to tend to Louie a few times when he became restless.  There was no sensitivity and the process did not hurt in the slightest. It was actually super relaxing to be forced to lay back for two hours instead of buzzing around doing a million things at once.

Admittedly, the aftercare is a bit of a pain – You need to eat white foods for about 48 hours afterward as the procedure opens up the pores in your teeth and they are more susceptible to staining. However, in the scheme of things, it is well worth the result.

Jess recommended two sessions for me to ensure the best result. While the first session did lift some stains, it didn’t quite get the job done. After the second session, my teeth really sparkled. I also have a touch-up pen to use at home. This allows me to get an even brighter white, or to maintain my results.

My thoughts

Firstly, the whole fact that Premiere Smiles is an in-home service is amazing. Absolutely ideal for mums with kids at home. The idea of laying back in my trackies and slippers, watching Netflix while getting some pampering done is incredible. A ridiculously practical idea.

The results speak for themselves. I think this is such a good option for people who want teeth whitening that works, but don’t want to spend a bomb at the dentist.  I have already recommended the service to my own family and friends. I definitely think it is definitely worth checking out if you’re in the market for a sparkly smile.

March Favourites

Can you believe that it is April already? The months are just flying by. So let’s waste no time in diving into my favourite products last month..

Kat Von D – Shade and Light Eye Contour Palette

Why did it take me so long to purchase this bad boy?! It is just something else. At first glance I fell in love; The packaging is sleek, sturdy and somehow sexy… if make up can even be sexy. The pans are generous and beautifully set out into tone coordinated quads. The colours are super pigmented, and so very buttery. Really blendable and buildable, this eyeshadow palette is just perfection. I try to use a different eyeshadow palette each day, but I have been reaching for this constantly. If this palette isn’t in your collection, you really need to take a long hard look at yourself 😉  This is my first purchase from Kat Von D Beauty range, and judging by the quality of this product I really need to get my grubby mitts on some more.

Real-U 3 Step Skincare (Cleanse, Control and Hydrate)

Real-U has been an absolute god-send. I have oily, congested skin and suffer from blackheads and hormonal breakouts. Since using Real-U my skin has completely changed. My breakouts are minimal, my face feels smooth and fresh. I feel so much more confident going out without any make-up on, and trust me, that is a huge deal. You can read a detailed review of Real-U here.

NYX Cosmetics – Intense Butter Gloss

It feels like I have been waiting for these to be released for ever.  As an avid user of the regular Butter Gloss, you could imagine my excitement when the intense version was announced. I picked up 4 colours from Target (Spice Cake, Tres Leches, Sorbet and Chocolate Crepe). They are the same creamy formula as the Butter Gloss, but pack a pigmented punch.  Stay tuned for a more detailed post about these guys.

Rodial – Super Acids X-Treme Hangover Mask

Face masks are another of my vices. At any one time I probably have 4 or 5 on the go. I bought this guy a little while ago and have finally gotten around to using him. I have heard really good things about Rodial skincare and have been  interested in trying their products.  Rodial‘s Super Acid X-Treme Hangover Mask is a triple action resurfacing clay mask with hexapeptide, glycolic and fruit acids and probiotic technology. It claims to hide a multitude of sins (That is a big yes in my book). It smells super fruity and applies really easily. There is a slight cooling and tingling sensation while the mask dries, which feels really refreshing. My face is left feeling toned, moisturised and sparkling. I really like this mask, it is a pleasure to use and easy to take off. I am looking forward to being able to try more Rodial skincare.

Josie Maran – Argan Oil

I do love a multi-use product, but damn, this is fixes everything. I like spreading it through my hair to seal split ends and for a boost of moisture. Argan Oil is also great on the dry skin around my fingers, to seems to heal it up quick smart. I also add a few drops to brow pomades and eyeshadow cremes when they become a bit dry, and it makes them as good as new. But my favourite use is with make up. I add a few drops to my Beauty Blender while applying foundation and it spreads and blends perfectly. It adds a nice glow and I feel like it prolongs the longevity of my foundation. Most natural oils can be used the same way. Give it a go and see how you like it.

Maybelline – Eye Studio Colour Tattoo Leather Longwear Eyeshadow (Creamy Beige)

This little guy was an unplanned purchase. Although I do love the regular Colour Tattoo Eyeshadows, they’re not something that I reach for all the time.  I was doing my groceries in Woolworth’s a few weeks ago and found the Maybelline range on sale. So for $5 I thought why not?! I am so glad it picked it up. The leather range is a matte formula but with a bit of a sheen. The longevity of the Colour Tattoo cremes are crazy. They don’t crease on me like most eyeshadows and are great for an all over lid colour. They also make an excellent eyeshadow base, which is how I predominantly use mine. I haven’t seen many other colours in this range, but would definitely be interested in a cream and dark brown.

White Glo – Diamond Series Advanced Teeth Whitening System

For as long as I can remember I have hated my teeth. It is that one thing about me that I would change if I had the opportunity. But within the last year or so, I have really started to embrace them. Plus gaps are apparently ‘in’. So I have been trialling different whitening products to make them look the best that they can. I have been using this system for the last week and I have already noticed a difference. The system is easy to use and comes with whitening tooth paste as well. I have even had a few comments on how white my teeth are looking . I am excited to see the results after using this system a little more.

Lush – Colour Supplement (Dark Yellow)

I have had this little pot of magic for a while, but it always gets lost amongst my other foundations. But since my skin has been looking so great, I have been using lighter bases and this guy has been a winner. Made with beautiful natural ingredients like rice bran and soya oils. Not only does it work, but it is actually good for your skin. The Colour Supplement can be mixed with moisturiser, used on its own as a base or as a concealer. Even though the pot is particularly small, you only need a small amount to cover your whole face. The only thing I would suggest is using a powder of the top to set. If it is left unset, the foundation can be a little sticky.

 

Have you used any of these products? What were your March favourites.

Until next time..
