This was my first experience with a tooth whitener and I am very pleased. I did a lot of research trying to decide which one I wanted to try. I am on my 7th day, and I already see a big difference! I am blessed with pretty nice teeth, but as I have gotten older, they are not as white as they were when I was in my 20's...but they almost are now! I do have a little sensitivity, but nothing major, maybe compariable to getting your teeth cleaned...I can live with that. I did not have any problems with the strips staying on my teeth at all. I was able to talk on the phone, etc. But I only did one set at a time. Meaning I did the top and when that was done, I would do the bottom, It's pretty simple. I wanted to stay with the mildest formula because I read too many complaints about tooth sentitivity with the stronger ones. Crest does waste a lot of money on packaging though. This little packets could come like trident gum packs and save a lot of money. Especially on the new designs they have. They have huge plastic cases for little strips.....I don't understand that.
I guess I am the oddball here, because I really like this body wash. It makes the best shaving cream, along the same lines as Kiss My Face. It does smell rather strong, but I like the scent it leaves behind and it doesn't really linger for very long on my skin. So it doesn't interfere with my fragrance of the day. I hunt this one down because I know it will be hard to find soon. I found it at Big Lots, and it was really inexpensive.
Fragrances -Unlisted Brand - Because i'm the princess

I absolutely loved all the products from Because I'm The Princess. Kelly has a wonderful selection of fragrances to choose from. Her packaging is really cute too! All the bottles had pretty fuschia color tops. Some of my favorites from her include Flowerbomb and Ed Hardy. I have the originals in both, and it's pretty hard to tell the difference. My husband actually likes her lotion better than the Ed Hardy one on me because he says the Ed Hardy one feels a little greasy. Customer services is outstanding and I will definately purchase again from her. :)
Conditioner -Dove - Volumizing Color Foam Conditioner

This conditioner is kind of fun to use. I felt like I was putting shaving cream on my head. It's easy to use and you don't have any conditoner running through fingers downt he drain before you have a chance to use it. It made my hair feel really nice and was very easy to comb out. My hair is light brown with lots of blonde highlights. It didn't weigh my hair down at all. I will certainly buy this again. My only concern is that "propane" is a listed ingredient. That kind of confuses me.
This is a masculine woody scent. My husband really likes this. It is a very clean just shaven kind of smell to me. Kind of soapy clean and fresh. Like going camping and taking a bath in a pond under the shadows of the forest trees. I will buy this again for him.
WISTERIA-This to me smells more green, like the leaves might be on wisteria upon first application. After it dries there is a pretty light floral scent. I have never smelled true wisteria, so I am not sure what it smells like. But I think if you like lilacs, you will like this, it has the same old fashion charm.
PARASOL-well, kind of funny...I think the name influenced me on this one. It smells just like you would imagine a woman walking through a "Lilac" garden wearing a beautiful flowing white dress carrying a parasol might smell like. It's very floral with maybe a cedar dry down. Something about this brings back my great grandmother's dining room table. She always had a lace tablecloth and in the center of the table was always this huge overflowing vase of white and lavendar lilacs. This would be a gorgeous room scent or fabulous for linens.
Styling Products -Beyond The Zone - Get N Creamed [DISCONTINUED]

This is another favorite for sleek shiny hair. It has a little more of a sheen to it then the smooth shot. It's very silky and has a fresh tropical kind of smell to it.
This seems to be my favorite product for smooth shiny hair. I little goes a long way, so a bottle will last you forever. It smells a little like amaretto or a coffee truffle smell, but it doesn't linger in your hair.
This is perhaps one of the best shaving creams I have ever used. It is really creamy and smooth. I bought the jasmine scent and it really smells like jasmine. The only time I don't use it is when I don't want any interfering fragrance in my bath. But I think it might come in unscented as well. One thing I love is that sometimes the can shaving creams leave marks in the tub/shower...and this packaging is perfect and I love the pump!!
Lotions/ Creams -Suds and Light - Silky Shea Body Lotion
ToriB 6/9/2004 10:46:00 AM
I really love this body lotion. I purchased it in the Cupids arrow which is a nice cherry vanilla with a touch of coconut scent. Very pretty. It does remind me a little of the original Jergens lotion, but with a touch of coconut.
Bath Treatments -Suds and Light - Bubble Trouble Bubble Bath
ToriB 6/9/2004 10:43:00 AM
This is the perfect bubble bath. It makes tons of fluffy creamy bubbles that have great staying power throughout my bath. I purchased it in Pink Sugar and Cupids Arrow and I love both of them.
Lotions/ Creams -Suds and Light - Featherlite Souffle
ToriB 6/9/2004 10:41:00 AM
I love this featherlite souffle. The texture is really nice. I purchased it in wildberry scone. This smells awesome, although I haven't used it yet. I'm thinking of saving it for swap and ordering it in the white cake, which I adore.
This is a perfect dupe of Pink Sugar. As with all the Pink Sugar even the original the first sniff smells strongly of cotton candy and something else. It's pretty when it's worn gently and not overkill.
AMBER-This is a very strong sharp true amber. For some reason when I close my eyes I smell Christmas. I don't know why. It's what I imagine sap might smell like dripping from a tree after it's cut. On the dry side its more powdery.Very pretty. But I don't think I would wear this alone on me. For a man this would be nice in a soap to be layered with his other fragrance.
