At Home Teeth Whitening with Smile Brilliant Review & Giveaway!!

{this post may contain affiliated links}

Today I am excited to share with you my secret to my pearly whites.. Smile Brilliant! We all know that the best accessory on you, is your smile. I hate to admit it but I've done the "napkin test" once and I couldn't believe how yellow my teeth were! I have been self-conscious about my teeth ever since that test. This is always something that I've wanted to try, and I'm glad that I got that email from Ashley over at Smile Brilliant!

Although I've never had braces and I always get asked if I had, and I still like to take pride in taking care of my teeth. Anyone that knows me knows that I always have a Diet Pepsi or a cup of coffee in my hand. So this was a no-brainer. TRY IT!

"Life is short, smile while you still have teeth" 

So how does it work?

First you will place your order at they will send you a package filled with everything you need to make your impressions. Working in an orthodontic lab a couple years ago made me well adverse to how these work, but you will follow the step by step instructions in making those impressions to send them back and have your custom trays made.

The good thing about taking these impressions of your teeth, is that the gel will get into every nook and cranny in your mouth unlike those over the counter teeth whitening strips.

During the entire process between shipping and arrivals, they answered all of my questions and concerns. They were also very patient with me. It was a wonder why I had never heard of them before!

After receiving your box of trays, getting started is super easy with their instructional cards provided. I have gotten into the routine of whitening right before bed and it is highly recommended too. All you need to do is to remove the breakaway cap from the whitening gel syringe and apply a thin line along the surface that comes in contact with front of teeth, insert and wait.

I have sensitive teeth when it comes to drinking really cold drinks so it was great to have the desensitizing gel and I felt that it didn’t cause my teeth any sensitivity at all. That’s another thing that sets Smile Brilliant from other teeth whitening systems; many don’t offer alternatives for sensitive teeth. You will use the desensitizing gel every time immediately after each session. But I have to tell you the best part of this entire whitening process... My teeth didn't get one bit of sensitivity! That really surprised me. Everyone is different and it's best to still mention it, just in case.

Once you get use to the custom trays in your mouth, you can do almost anything while you whiten.
Like your make up routine! I used mine at night for the most part but this is an example! Talking during the process ended up with drool everywhere (I mean I have to warn you, right?!) It's probably better to not talk.

Putting on your make-up OR

binge watching Netflix ;) 

After about 5-6 sessions, I couldn't notice a total change but I was getting compliments left and right. It wasn't until the entire process was over that I noticed it completely! Here are my results!

Monat Hair Review & Giveaway Ends 1/5/18

So before I let you in on the review, I want to go into a detail about my hair history!

Having a hair breakthrough!

Image may contain: one or more people and closeup

I used to go a whole week without washing my hair and then I turn 29, had two kids, diet changed and I died my hair (probably with something I shouldn't have in March of this year) so It's been every other day I have had to wash my hair because it had gotten greasy so bad. So bad to the point I got migraines from my head being greasy.

You can also sign up to be a Monat VIP. MONAT VIPs enjoy naturally based, amazing haircare products at 15% off, free shipping and a free product with all qualified Flexship orders and more! All for just $19.99 USD/$24.95 CAD and your commitment to a total of three qualifying Flexship orders.

I have been using Monat now for about 3 months. I started out using the Revive Shampoo, and when that didn't work within two weeks I switched to Monat Black. A complete 2 n 1 system that cleanses and conditions at the same time. Although this product was meant for men, I found a lot of women use it and love it! So after about a month, I noticed I still had some dandruff patches, but I found out that your hair is actually going through a detox. Have you heard of people who go through a sugar detox? Or when they give up smoking, or alcohol and their body has to go through a detox? Maybe not on the same level, but that's what your hair does.

Check this out. Men (and sometimes women as well, LIKE ME) may experience itchiness or flakiness due to years of styling products going on and building up on the scalp. Monat will dissolve that build-up and clean out the follicles. 

Here are the directions that I follow:
  • Apply a generous amount to wet hair.
  • Gently massage into a rich lather from scalp to ends.
  • Leave in hair for 2-3 minutes.
  • Rinse thoroughly.
  • REPEAT TWO more times but lesson the amount each time!
You may think that washing my hair three times in one shower session is crazy but it works!! I haven't used much more then I normally would, because it's not a lathering shampoo. I have been using this particular bottle for about 2 months and I still have about a handful more washes until I need a refill!

Now I like having my hair down once in awhile (like not love lol) but thank you Ayla, for introducing me to this product!
