Dazzle This Holiday With Crest

Although this post is sponsored by Crest, all teeth whitening opinions are my own 🙂

The holidays means lots of sipping and indulging in our favorite beverages and bites. My favorite part of this time of year, is sharing those memories with my peeps. Whether that be snuggling with bae near the fireplace with some hot cocoa in hand, enjoying a coffee date with a fellow blogger, or raising a glass of red vino with the fam over dinner; this season gives all the vibes! BUT that also means, tis’ the season for stained teeth, LMAO!

Like, I want to be able to dazzle on social media with a white smile, but like, all these sugary sweets are just TOO GOOD to put down! (I’m looking at you, Pumpkin Spiced Lattes!)

So, before bae, my pup, and I send out our annual Holiday card, I NEED to show my grill a little more TLC…but honestly, who has the time…teeth whitening can be sooo tedious! Recently, my mom suggested for me to use Crest 3D Whitestrips, since she just completed her 20 day whitening with Professional Effects. And I am definitely my mother’s daughter because she has such a hard time keeping up with self-care routines, especially during busy times like the holidays, but she kept raving with how easy these were.

It could not have been better timing, that Crest reached out because ya girl’s smile was looking a little rough! For the past two weeks, I’ve been using Crest 3D Whitestrips Professional Effects and my smile is significantly whiter. Tbh, I saw a difference after only a few uses!

My favorite part about the strips is that they stay put until you take them off! So I can talk and even drink water while whitening! I can even multitask in a self-care moment while quickly rushing to get ready for our good friend’s holiday party! Hallelujah! No sticky gels or trays you have to worry about!

Another problem I’ve had in the past with whitening products is that my smile is quite large and often only my front teeth would receive the benefits but Crests’ FlexFit technology allows these strips to stretch and bend, covering my entire smile!

After 20 mins, simply peel these babies off and you are good to go! No residue, no funky taste. The only thing you should notice is your smile visibly brighter. YAS QWEEN!

OH! Another thing I should note is that my teeth are ridiculously sensitive! But with Crest 3D Whitestrips Professional Effects my teeth didn’t react one bit. That is major key in my book, because I am the last person on this planet to maintain a self-care routine that is remotely difficult or uncomfortable!

The best thing you can indulge in during this nonstop holiday season, is yourself! Squeeze in a few self-care moments with Crest 3D Whitestrips for a whiter smile, because after all… we carry it around with us every single day! You can get two Crest 3D Whitestrips Professional Effects for the price of one with their bogo deal! Shop HERE and SHINE BRIGHT, MAMAS!

Gift Glowing Skin This Holiday With These Hemp Seed Oil Goodies

IT’S THE MOST WONDERFUL TIME OF THE YEARRRRR ! 

There’ll be much mistltoeing, 

And SKIN may be glowing

When love ones are gifted Advanced Clinicals! 

It’s the most wonderful time of the year…

Thanksgiving literally crept up on all of us! But now, as we head into December, the holiday season has officially commenced…and I could not be any more excited! But let’s be honest, this can also be an extremely stressful time! What will Mom want this year? Sister has tried every product out there, how will your gift wow her? Oh yeah, your bestie still needs a little something, and dang, there’s that second cousin of yours that reminded you, you were her secret santa and to make sure it’s something good! The easy part is remembering everyone on your list, but the harder part is budgeting for it all! Cue the anxiety! As I am usually the worst gift giver, frantically shopping the day of Christmas Eve, this year, I decided to take a different approach. I have actually, set gifts aside, ahead of time! (I know, who is she?!)

But speaking of anxiety, this season of my life has been incredibly tough. My anxiety has been living it’s best life lately, making mine, difficult to navigate. So in efforts to find some tranquility, a friend of mine urged that I try some common household items made with hemp. The chemical makeup of hemp seed oil, consists of omega-3 fatty acids, which are aids in relieving anxiety. I let her know that when my anxiety levels heighten, my skin tends to dry up. She then, recommended Advanced Clinicals. For the past couple of months, my nighttime skin care routine has been literally heavenly and so peaceful!

So you could imagine my excitement when Advanced Clinicals  approached me to work together! I freaking love their products! They are THE ideal brand for affordable (yas) and effective (bigger yass) skin care! This line stands behind advanced, scientific formulas that still somehow go for $15 or less! (So, sorry if you are reading this, Mom, Sis, or bestie, these are the perfect stocking stuffers!) This is not a skin-care line that you have to wait weeks on end to see results, the chemistry is so freaking effective, that my anxiety and skin felt better after a few applications.

Before bed, I usually like to cleanse, tone, moisturize, and finally hydrate with my Vitamin E Oil. If you follow me, you know I LIVEE for Vitamin E! So once those steps are completed, I wrap up with the Advanced Clinicals Hemp Seed Oil line.

HEMP SEED OIL FACIAL MIST: Infused with my fave ingredient, Vitamin E, this mist helps brighten and replenish a healthy moisturized glow. It’s Cannabis Sativa is naturally rich in fatty acids and plant-based hydration. I LIVE for a few spritz throughout the day, really, but especially before bed as it leaves my skin feeling so soft. Plus the Aloe Vera and Sea Salt ensures I will not be left feeling oily or sticky.

HEMP SEED OIL INSTANT HYDRATION CREAM: Rich in essential fatty acids like Omegas 3, 6 and 9, this soothing compound helps restore the life and elasticity of dry, rough skin. Which is WHAT A GIRL NEEDS, because my elbows, knees, and shins tend to be the driest areas of my body! Poor things, need extra TLC and hydration. The infused Coconut Oils, soothing anti-inflammatory properties, Shea Butter, and VITAMIN E, all work together to revitalize smooth, soft skin!

HEMP SEED OIL INSTANT HYDRATION BODY OIL: This stuff makes me feel insanely luxurious! This hemp-infused body oil is intended for luminous skin. And as you can see, it does just that! PLUS, IT’S NON-GREASY and does not get on my sheets, probably because my dry skin absorbs it so quickly. Plus, the VITAMIN E, Ginger, and Lavender work together to support collagen and helps lift the skin! Not to mention, it leaves you feeling like a supple queen!

It’s crazy to me, that these “everyday” products that a friend recommended a while back, became some of the most helpful, soothing aids before bed. Not to mention this hemp line amongst many other Advanced Clinical products are stand outs, as they are backed by chemists who perfectly concocted with some of the earth’s most powerful natural agents, effective formulas that anyone can afford! Y’all know I will never stand behind expensive skincare, because in my experience, just a little, goes a long way!

Do yourself and a favor this holiday season and avoid the stressors of what the heck to gift the women (or men) in your life. With $15 a pop, you can’t go wrong with this line!
