Flossolution Complete Sonic Flossing & Brushing Set: Toss Your Floss

“Floss daily,” says your dentist. How many of us actually obey? It’s not that I don’t agree with the benefits. Having healthy gums is actually more important than having healthy teeth because it’s easier to fix your teeth. Once your gums recede and deteriorate, all your teeth fall out. Sorry to scare you…

Grills at the VMAs: Why, Why, Why??

Here’s a celebrity beauty trend I’m horrified by, and I’d be surprised if everyone else wasn’t on the same page…grills!

I don’t like mint which makes finding a toothpaste my taste-buds are OK with a bit of a challenge. Most toothpastes that aren’t mint flavored are either designed with kids in mind (ie they have Sesame Street and the likes on the packaging) or they’re natural toothpastes formulated without fluoride. A bunch of popular natural […]

White teeth took the world by storm some years ago with the advent of teeth-whitening agents. Suddenly, everyone had a sparkling smile. Well, now we can do more than apply peroxide or strips.

Wine Wipes: Wine-O’s Rejoice!

My best friend got me these little guys for Christmas last year. When I realized what they were, I felt the same way I felt the first time my mom showed me what mascara was. A life changing experience. Wine Wipes are a combination of baking soda, salt, hydroperoxide, calcium, glycerin and orange blossom and […]
