Last week we discussed an important event where having pearly white teeth would boost self-confidence, the event I selected was New York Fashion Week, because whether you posed or you didn't, you still find yourself in tons of photos! As promised I am sharing my after photo and I have something special in it for you as well! Check out my before post and here is the before and after photos:

After Photo:

As you can see from the before and after photos, I now have a much brighter smile!


Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - Do not brush teeth immediately before applying strips.
Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - Apply gel side of strip to teeth.
Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ -  Align strips with gum line and press gently for good contact, then fold the rest of strip behind teeth to keep in place. (work quickly or the edges will stick to your lip! Definitely do this in the mirror).
Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - Short strip goes on your bottom teeth, long strip on top teeth.
Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - After 2 hours, remove and discard.
Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - If any gel remains on your teeth you can either brush it away or rinse it off.
Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - Strips will not whiten caps, crowns, veneers, fillings or dentures. Do not use with dental braces.
Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - Crest 3D White 2-Hour Express Whitestrips are sold at drugstores and mass retailers nationwide. MSRP $54.99

My Take:

Crest 3D Whitestrips are definitely cheaper than a trip to the Dentist (however you should get a Dental checkup and cleaning at least every 6 months) and easy to use in the convenience of your own home! What's not to love?

I have also had the chance to try out the Crest 3D White Advanced Vivid Enamel Renewal Toothpaste and I find that the combination is a great whitening one-two punch! And the toothpaste really leaves your teeth with that fresh from the dentist kind of clean!

I have always had pretty white teeth, and this is the first time I have ever tried out a whitening product. But using the strips in conjunction with the toothpaste left me a dentist white and clean feel. I definitely think it was worth it!

You didn't think I'd forget about you right? Who loves you butterfly?

{Before} Crest 3D White 2 Hour Express Whitestrips - Fashion Week NYC!

My friends at the One2One Network and at Crest 3D White asked me “What life event would you whiten for in just two hours with Crest 3D White 2 Hour Express Whitestrips?”

For me, that was an easy answer, New York Fashion Week! New York Fashion Week is one event after another back to back and tons of photo opps! With many of these events not only do you have to consider the pictures you pose for, there are also the ones taken of you that you don't even know about! Both pictures and video are shot of the attendees, not just the models on the runway!

I'm still not used to being in front of the camera, which I know sounds weird for a blogger. But my blog started solely with inspirational and empowerment posts, I never really expected to share very much about myself. Along the years I've become a bit more comfortable with sharing the face behind the brand, and Fashion Week for me this year has been way busier than last year, while I don't aspire to walk the runway, I definitely want to have the whitest, prettiest smile possible!

I'm off to try out the Whitestrips, and I'll share my after photo with you (and you know I'm always looking out for my butterflies, so stay tuned for your own chance to share what life event you would whiten for and win a box for yourself!)

By the way,  I have also had a chance to try out the Crest 3D White ToothPaste and I really love it!
