A brighter smile in 10 days?

I think almost everyone has an obsession with having their teeth whiter. I have tried several things over the years, whitening strips, whitening toothpaste... the works. Luckily my teeth are quite a bright shade so I haven't been too unlucky with them but I'm always looking for a way to make them a few shades brighter.

I heard about PolarWhitePro* and decided to give it a try. This pack contains two whitening pens. The pens contain a natural whitening enhancer which whitens teeth without causing super sensitivity, this is definitely something I have experienced in the past.

I was very impressed by the this product, the pens have a sleek applicator which makes application easy. You simply apply it to your teeth and allow 20-30 seconds for the product to set. Then you can go about your day with no messy mouth guards or waiting time.

Result- I honestly noticed an immediate difference in my teeth after one application! My teeth looked cleaner and brighter. I was a bit apprehensive applying the gel two times a day, after having sensitivity pain with other whitening products, but I did not experience any pain using this product. I applied the gel for 10 days twice a day and I definitely see a difference, before and after pictures below.

Has anyone else tried this product? PolarWhitePro is available from pharmacies and salons nationwide. For Stockist enquiries- 01 6854063.

Bronz’Express Tinted Lotion

With the colder months fast approaching people are reaching for the best false tans around to keep that summer glow... not that we get a great colour here in Ireland! The Bronz’Expres Tinted Lotion* from Academie is absolutely gorgeous.

Its gives an immediate uplift glow to the skin, which makes it streak free and easy to apply an even layer of colour. Bronz’Express does not have that usual false tan smell, it has a beautiful fruity scent to it. 

Bronz’Express is suitable for all skin types and is one of the first tans on the market to create a natural tan in a few hours. I used this day for a day event, I don't like my tan to be too dark for everyday wear so I found this tan was perfect, the colour is beautiful and it lasted for days and faded gradually just like a natural tan.

My only gripe with this tan was the consistency, it is very runny and dries quite quickly, so you need to make sure and wear gloves and a mitt and protect the floors and anything else around you in case it drips.

Bronz' Express Tinted Lotion retails for €14.95. This Tinted Lotion is available from all good pharmacies nationwide including Boots, online at The French Beauty Rooms and Beauty Salons nationwide.

Has anyone else given this tan a try?

Fall in love with Jessica's 'Autumn in New York' A/W 14 Collection

This season Jessica Nail's* decided to use inspiration from the beautiful colours you find around New York during the Autumn months. There are six shades in the collection, Soho In Love (Pale Pink), NY State of Mind (Blue Toned), Broadway Bound (Bright red), Mad for Madison (Rich brown), Meet at the Plaza (Evergreen), and Blue Harlem (Navy blue).

I was sent Blue Harlem and Broadway Bound to try out. I was seriously impressed with these polishes. They have a large brush applicator which makes application easy, they dry very quickly and leave an amazing shine! I applied two coats of the polish and it stayed chip free for about 5 days, by day 5 I only had a small chip on one nail. I absolutely adore the red shade. Red polish is my favourite colour to wear during the A/W months.

Check out the full Jessica's Autumn in New York Collection at The French Beauty Room. Jessica polishes are available from salons nationwide and online at The French Beauty Room. These polishes retail for €12.95.
