Each time you open your mouth you are making an impression on the people you are with. If you aren’t happy with the brightness of your smile and/or the health of your teeth then Crest HD Pro Health 2-Step System, their newest product, is going to be your next best friend. Crest sent this set along with a $50 CVS giftcard for a Beauty Info Zone reader. I was thrilled to receive this myself so I know one of you will be too.

Inside this shiny box are two Crest HD products for their daily 2-step system. Step 1 is the Purifying Cleanser, a flouride toothpaste made to protect you against gingivitis as well as bacteria that causes cavities. Step 2 is the Perfecting Gel which is what makes this set unique.

You all know how to brush your teeth but you probably don’t know how to perfect your teeth! With the Crest HD System you brush for 1 minute with the Purifying Cleanser but you don’t rinse. Oh no, drop that habit so you can use this properly. Yes you can spit but don’t rinse. Instead go to Step 2 and keep brushing but this time with the Perfecting Gel. After a minute of using this you can finally spit and rinse. Then look in the mirror and smile so you can see a brighter smile.

The Oral-B 3D White Pro-Flex toothbrush will help you with your quest to have less stained teeth. This has “flexing side” that adjust to the unique curves and contours of your own teeth and gums. It also has a stain eraser in the middle that’s a different material than the outer bristles. Those bristles help whiten your teeth and help remove stains.

While this Crest HD 2-Step System is big enough to last me a month, you’ll see the difference in just one week. That means you can have a brighter smile by Valentine’s Day. CVS is promoting this system by asking you to visit your local CVS any time before the end of February and get $2 in extraCare bucks with purchase of Crest HD. This also works with any of their $ off or % off coupons that you might receive via mail or email.

For the giveaway you’ll receive the CREST HD PRO-HEALTH DAILY 2-STEP SYSTEM as well as the ORAL-B PRO FLEX TOOTHBRUSH and a $50 CVS giftcard. It’s a great prize and products that you’ll appreciate. This is open to US only through February 20th @11:50 p.m. EST.

Stop being so sensitive! Enter our Crest Sensi-Stop giveaway for a prize pack AND a $75 Walgreens gift card

I am the first to admit I am very, very sensitive.  Not like I easily take offense…I’m actually rather laid back and it takes a lot of static to get a reaction out of me.  But my teeth…that is another story.  One bite into ice cream, or an ice cube, or even hot coffee hitting my teeth the wrong way and I start screaming.  P&G sent the BIZ a great selection of products that give my teeth relief, and even better – they are sponsoring a giveaway for the same products, plus a $75 gift card to Walgreens so you can shop for even more Crest products.

Win all this and a $75 Walgreens Gift Card too1

Win all this and a $75 Walgreens Gift Card too!

Crest is celebrating the launch of their new oral care line, Sensi-Stop, that is now available at Walgreens. In addition to the $75 gift card, this fabulous Crest Sensi-Stop Prize Pack includes:

  • Crest Sensi-Stop Strips™
  • Crest Sensi-Care Rinse
  • Crest Sensi-Repair Toothpaste (sample size)
  • Oral-B Sensi-Soft Toothbrush

Check out the videos explaining this new line HERE.  The Sensi-Stop Strips are pretty terrific at relieving sensitivity in my teeth.  In ten minutes, sensitive areas are directly treated and feel so much better…and I love immediate gratification.  Here is more info from Crest:

Crest Sensi-Stop Strips

Crest® Sensi-Stop™ Strips

  • What it is: Crest® Sensi-Stop™ Strips are thin, flexible strips that contain an active ingredient used by dental professionals.
  • How it Works: Unlike toothpaste, Crest® Sensi-Stop™ Strips are applied directly to sensitive areas, providing targeted delivery of the key ingredient that allows for longer contact time on the surface of the tooth. Within minutes, strips build a lasting barrier that helps stop sensitivity pain by blocking tubules, relieving symptoms of dental sensitivity for up to 30 days (*With the use of similar oxalate products, some patients reported sensitivity relief for periods of up to one month, while others reported relief for shorter periods).

In addition to the strips, there are other Crest products that work on relieving that sensitivity throughout the day.

Crest Sensi-Soft Toothbrush

Crest Sensi-Soft Toothbrush

Crest Sensi-Repair & Prevent Toothpaste

Crest Sensi-Repair & Prevent Toothpaste

Using the right toothbrush and toothpaste makes a huge difference in tooth sensitivity.  The Sensi-Soft Toothbrush has polished-end bristles that are soft so they don’t irritate teeth and gums, yet they still gives an effective cleaning.  The Sensi-Repair & Prevent Toothpaste is a minty fresh gel/paste that works on sensitive areas to give immediate relief as well as preventing future issues.  It also has fluoride to prevent cavities and fights gingivitis.

Crest Sensi-Care AntiCavity Flouride Rinse

Crest Sensi-Care AntiCavity Fluoride Rinse

The Crest Sensi-Care AntiCavity Fluoride Rinse has a very mild minty flavor without that alcohol burn that hurts like other mouthwashes I’ve tried.  It strengthens tooth enamel, prevents cavities, cleans teeth and freshens breath.  If mouthwash has proven difficult for you in the past, give this one a try – I’ll bet the farm it will work for you.

There is a terrific promotion going on at Walgreens on Saturday, September 27th.  Your local Walgreens is having a ‘Saturdate’ so you can pick up a box of Crest Sensi-Stop Strips™ for $17.99! There will be additional coupons and deals throughout the event plus samples of Crest Sensi-Repair Toothpaste.  Stop by so you can get some relief from sensitive teeth!

Win all of this, plus a $75 Walgreens gift card too!

My Crest 3D White Whitestrips Challenge (and a giveaway)

I am a tooth person.  The first thing I notice on other people is their teeth, so I am a huge believer in the impact of a beautiful smile.  While I have used whitening products in the past, I have had difficulty because my teeth are sensitive.  I also cannot stand the taste of teeth whiteners.  I already use the Crest 3D White toothpaste, and I had read that the new Crest 3D Whitestrips were effective, good for sensitive teeth, and free of nasty taste.  So when Crest gave Beauty Info Zone a chance to do a fun Crest 3D Whitestrips ‘social experiment’ and to offer our readers a giveaway, I was ready!

Crest 3D White Whitestrips

To demonstrate the impact your teeth can make, Crest asked me to artificially ‘yellow’ my teeth and then record someone’s reaction.  I am a total glutton for punishment, so I decided to do this on Thanksgiving Day.  I hadn’t seen my brother Bill in over a month, and he was the first to arrive – so he was my guinea pig.

Here is how I looked before:

before the yellowing…

Here is a quick video intro of my plan:  The beginning of my Crest 3D Whitestrips challenge

And here is after. Wow that is awful!!

Oooooh gross…

Pretty disgusting.  That is NOT a nice gold tooth smile.

My daughter taped my brother’s reaction for us:  Crest 3D Whitestrips

Here are some pics if you prefer:

My brother seeing those teeth for the first time…

and he was definitely not impressed.

Needless to say, my whole family certainly realized the impact teeth can have on your look!!

Obviously, my teeth were excessively yellow.  But Crest 3D White Whitestrips ($49.99) are extremely effective on really yellow teeth, removing up to ten year’s worth of set-in stains.  In fact, they have a study that shows these strips whiten 25 times more effectively than a leading whitening toothpaste.  Check it out at their website, http://www.3dwhite.com/.

the best defense against my morning latte habit

It is necessary to make whitening a continual part of your grooming routine because every day your teeth can become more yellow from something as small as that morning cup of joe.

easy to use and they don’t hurt my teeth

A box of the 3D White Whitestrips comes with 20 Whitestrips that treat both your upper and lower teeth.

A strip for both your upper and lower teeth

There are two big benefits to these Whitestrips.  

1.  They have an Advanced Seal no-slip technology, so the strips really adhere to your teeth without allowing the active ingredients to escape – no yucky taste, thank goodness.

2.  These Whitestrips use the same enamel-safe ingredient dentists use, so they don’t hurt my sensitive teeth.

For the best results, use the strips once a day for 20 days.  The strips are clear and they really stay put, so you can do whatever you’d like for the 30 minutes you have them on except eat.  I like to use them at night when I read before bed.  The Crest 3D White Whitestrips are excellent – they work, they don’t taste awful, and they are easy to use.  Here is your chance to win a box for yourself!

This giveaway is open through Tuesday, Dec. 11 at 11:59 p.m. EST.  The winner will be picked by Rafflecopter and will be checked for veracity. Entering is easy, so do it now – and good luck!! – Lisa
