it really works!

Today I am sharing with you just a couple of things that I have tried lately and discovered... they work! I get so tired of all these products that claim to be the best, but I am usually disappointed. Well, here are a few things that I have been pleasantly surprised by.

1. Optic White toothpaste
I don't know about you, but I always feel like my teeth could be/should be/need to be whiter. I go through times that I get really concerned about my teeth, and take all measures to avoid darkening them. You know what I'm talking about... you drink through a straw, wipe your teeth with a napkin, excessive flossing. Well when I saw this Optic White toothpaste advertised on tv, I was instantly intrigued. I tried it out and was pleasantly surprised. I didn't take before and after pictures, but I could tell a significant difference in just about a week and a half. My teeth were not sensitive, which is a possible symptom for most whitening agents. If you are looking for whiter teeth, give this toothpaste a try. (take before and after pictures just to prove your results!)

2. Mary Kay Acne Treatment Gel

This little beauty is a miracle worker! If you have a blemish or a little red-headed guy shows up on your face, just put a little drop of this pimple killer on there and BOOM! results. I usually use this overnight, but you can put it on anytime. Because I do use it before bed, I can see results by the time I get up in the morning. Obviously that is perfect. Go to bed with a pimple, wake up blemish-free! Again, I was pleasantly surprised. 

3. Nichole by O.P.I. nail polish
Ok, all nail polish "works," but let's face it, some are just better than others... and some are prettier of course. O.P.I. is always a winning brand for nail polish, but maybe I am just bragging about this beautiful new polish that I am a proud owner of. ;)
And here is my next purchase from the O.P.I. collection
So go ahead and try these out, and let me know what you think! Or if you have already tried them give me a shout out.
