The Easiest & Most Effective At Home Teeth Whitening I've Ever Tried {Smile Brilliant} + Giveaway!

Who doesn't love a bright, white smile? Getting one no longer requires expensive treatments at the dentist or using average at best whitening strips from the drugstore. Say hello to Smile Brilliant.

Smile Brilliant sends everything you need to your doorstep. The kit they send includes the paste and trays to make your own teeth impressions as well the the whitening gel and even desensitizing gel if you choose. Once you create your teeth molds, you send them back in the envelope included in your kit and they'll send you back the clear plastic retainer-like trays you'll use to whiten.

The whitening process is so simple you can do it anywhere! Serious anywhere! I've whitened my teeth while at work, getting a manicure, and even while sitting at a graduation!

You simply put the whitening gel along the inside of your trays and wear them for 30 minutes to 3 hours. If you are like me and suffer from tooth sensitivity, you'll definitely want to use the desensitizing gel. You apply this after whitening in the same way and keep them in for about 15-20 minutes.

I was blown away by my results!



Smile Brilliant's Whitening Kits start off at only $129! How many whitening kits have you tired over the years? I promise this will be the last one you ever have to try!

How Much Is Teeth Whitening

Hello June {June Goals + Wishlist & May Goals Results}

Well this post is 5 days late, but I still think it's important for me to see where I stacked up against last month's goals and set new ones.

May Goals Results:

  1. Spend as little as possible on food. I have so much food at the house and always seem to make an argument for eating out. 
    • According to my budget I spent $207.85 on food this month. That is mind blowing.... like what did I even buy?!
  2. Keep my house clean. 
    • I ended the month with a clean house so I'll consider this a win. 
  3. Start running again! Time to get into long distance running shape again. 
    • I started walking Beau almost every day so this is basically the intro to running course. 
  4. Blog more. I'm gonna leave the "more" part vague intentionally :)
    • Killed this goal! I blogged quite a bit this month. 
  5. Lose 5 pounds. Yep...this goal's back.
    • If you measure from the first of May to the end, I lost exactly 1 pound. But from May 18th to the end of the month, I lost 6.2 pounds. I'm calling it a success. 

June Goals:

  1. Get in 10,000 steps every day.
  2. Keep my house clean This energerigized me so much last month that it's here again.
  3. Lose 5 pounds. Slowly making progress toward my goal weight.  
  4. Get Beau's weight down. Beau is sooo overweight, hopefully the walking and weight management dog food help. 
  5. Get a good tan ;-)
