Happy self care Sunday! By now, you should all know that I take this day pretty seriously. There is one area of my self care routine that I haven’t talked too much about, until now. I am someone who follows a really consistent bedtime routine. When I was younger, I was awful about washing my face before bed. Most nights I would even sleep in my makeup (which now makes me cringe). After watching my older sister follow a night time routine ever since she was in middle school, the older I got, I finally followed suit.
Now I can’t go to sleep without washing my face, moisturizing with a serum or lotion (sometimes both), lip mask, lash serum and brushing my teeth. And as of a few weeks ago, I’ve added a new product into my night time routine. It is the whitening kit from Smile Brilliant. I was so excited when this brand reached out to me. My teeth were never a huge insecurity for me growing up, which I am extremely grateful for, but like many people, I’ve always wanted whiter teeth. Over the years, I’ve tried countless whitening products that just didn’t measure up. They often left me in pain and the results were never long lasting. But after only a week of using the Smile Brilliant system, I began to see results that I was excited about.
Sounds too good to be true, right? Well that is what I thought too. If you haven’t heard of the brand Smile Brilliant, let me give you some information. The product is developed by hygienists & dental professionals. This team originally created custom fitted whitening trays for dental offices but quickly realized that the real costs these dentists were charging for their products was mostly for the visit and ‘chair time’ and not for the actual products themselves. That’s when Smile Brilliant was born. They wanted to eliminate much of the cost for the consumer by allowing them to create their trays at home vs paying for a visit to their local dentist.
Each kit includes material to create your own custom fitting trays (1 upper & 1 bottom), whitening gel and desentizing gel if you have sensitive teeth like me.
This process was so easy to incorporate into my nightly self care routine. After I’ve eaten dinner (and had dessert) I brush my teeth and start the whitening process.
1. I brush my teeth with toothpaste
2. Apply whitening gel in custom fitting tray
3. Wear trays for 1-3 hours (I typically wear mine for an hour and a half while watching TV)
4. Remove trays and brush with only water
5. Apply desensitizing gel to trays and wear for 20 minutes
6. Remove trays and head to bed
It is so simple! And I love that it is something you can do in the comfort of your home while you are binge watching your favorite show. Here are my results that I'm so excited about!
