Have you tried CloSYS? Review and giveaway

CloSYS

No matter how beautiful your lipstick is and how gorgeous your smile you still aren’t complete if you have bad breath. You may make that first impression but will people want to be near you if your breath isn’t up to par? That’s where CloSYS comes in. At first it appears that this is a normal toothwhitening system but CloSYS goes beyond that.

CloSYS Introductory Kit

CloSYS Introductory Kit

I’m sure you are used to mouthwash and other products that help with your breath but CloSYS is unique in comparison. First “the difference between CloSYS and other oral rinses is its ability to eliminate the volatile sulfur compounds (VSC) that cause bad breath. It also kills the harmful bacteria that create VSC and gum infection, without any alcohol or additives to cause burning or irritation. (I couldn’t have said it better myself!)

The Introductory Kit that I was sent (and that two people can win) contains the original unflavored sulfate-free floride toothpaste. In the kit there’s a gentle mint toothpaste, alcohol free oral health rinse, mini oral spray to take with, and a small mint flavor bottle to add the right amount of flavor to your taste.

All of their items are available full size as well as in travel size and introductory kits.

CloSYS Sulfate-Free Flouride Toothpaste

CloSYS Sulfate-Free Flouride Toothpaste

CloSYS toothpaste is available in both Flouride and Flouride-Free formulas. These have a very mild flavor and have a low-abrasion formula. They are both good for sensitive teeth. The main goal is eliminating bad breath for hours and that’s where they excel.

CloSYS Alcohol-Free Oral Health Rinse

CloSYS Oral Health Rinse also comes in two formulas: CloSYS Alcohol-Free Oral Health Rinse and Floride Oral Health Rinse (Silver). The alcohol-free version basically has no taste to it which is why the Introductory Kit includes a very small vial of mint flavor for you to make it a little more peppy. But a little of the flavor goes a long way.

CloSYS Flavor Concentrate

CloSYS Flavor Concentrate

“CloSYS Original Unflavored Rinse with Flavor Control® and new pre-flavored Gentle Mint Rinse contain Cloralstan™, a powerful yet gentle patented ingredient that kills 99.9% of the bacteria that cause bad breath, dissolve unwanted compounds, and reduce harmful bacteria in your mouth for a noticeably cleaner and fresher mouth.”

CloSYS Fresh Breath Oral Spray

CloSYS Fresh Breath Oral Spray

CloSYS Fresh Breath Oral Spray is another product that helps with your breath. This is a portable spray to be used any time you need it. It’s sugar free as well as alcohol free and comes in a non-aerosol spray. It’s great to have with you all the time.

Ingredient list: water, N&A flavor, polysorbate 20, glycerin, stabilized chlorine dioxide, sodium saccharin, methyl paraben, sodium citrate, sodium benzoate.

What makes CloSYS so unique is their patented ingredient Cloralstan which kills the bacteria that creates bad breath. 99% of bacteria is destroyed and Clorastan helps prevents its regrowth. Using CloSYS will help with more than your breath though. It also helps with gum disease (gingivitis and peridondtitis)

It’s easy to get started with the Introductory/Trial Size kit which is TSA approved. Once you’ve tried it you’ll be able to determine your favorites and buy them in full size. Amazon, CVS, Walmart, and Walgreens carry CloSYS so do yourself a favor and learn about it for yourself.  —  Marcia

Put your money where your mouth is with Apa Beauty

My favorite summer look? A long, wispy white dress with sky blue sandals, beachy waves, a deep tan…and a super white smile.

I can buy the dress and the sandals (at Shopbophere and here) – and I can get the tan with some great self tanner – but the teeth? I need some help. Luckily there are a few products by Apa Beauty that definitely do the trick!

Apa BeautyApa Beauty is a line of oral care and beauty products created by the celebrity cosmetic dentist Dr. Michael Apa.The packaging is sleek and white, just like your teeth will be after using the products.

Apa BeautyI am fascinated with all of the really cool products in this line and I tried a trio of items that make for a great summer smile: Apa Lip Loofah ($18), Apa Tooth Gloss ($28), and Apa Blue Lip Shine ($25).

Apa Beauty Lip Loofah

Apa Beauty Lip Loofah

I have a love/hate relationship with lip exfoliators. I love how soft my lips are after using them, but I usually hate the feel of them. They are either too gentle to make much difference or else they are too rough and are painful to use.

The Apa Beauty Lip Loofah impresses the heck out of me – this is a lip scrub to love! It’s super gentle but it gives excellent results. I use a tiny bit with some water and softly scrub in small circles, then rinse and voila – soft, moist lips that are super smooth. The scrubby stuff is made from sugar and sweet almond seed, and the moisturizing stuff includes Jojoba oil, shea butter and orange peel.

Apa Beauty Tooth Gloss

Apa Beauty Tooth Gloss

The biggest surprise for me out of the three products I tested is the Apa Beauty Tooth Gloss. I never thought for a moment that this would be anything I would use regularly – it seemed like something models or beauty pageant participants would use instead of Vaseline on their teeth to keep smiling.  But this tooth gloss does so much more:

  • LIGHT REFLECTING GLOSS BRIGHTENS TEETH FOR A BEAUTIFUL SMILE
  • ANTIOXIDANT GREEN TEA COMBATS BACTERIA AND BAD BREATH
  • SAFFLOWER SEED AND JOJOBA OIL NOURISH TEETH AND GUMS
  • PEPPERMINT OIL FIGHTS GERMS AND FRESHENS BREATH
  • RECOMMENDED FOR USE IN COMBINATION WITH APA LIP LOOFAH AND APA BLUE LIP SHINE FOR DAILY RADIANCE CARE

I don’t think I’ve ever tested anything quite like this light-reflecting gloss. It makes teeth look whiter and keeps breath fresh. It’s not slimy or weird feeling on…in fact, it’s really pleasant. It does make teeth look whiter and feels better than breath mints which actually minimize shiny teeth.  I keep it in my purse and apply it every so often. What a great and unique find.

Apa Beauty Blue Lip Shine

I’ve had great results with blue lip gloss in the past and the Apa Beauty Blue Lip Shine does its job by making teeth look even whiter. It doesn’t really add color to lips – just shine with a slight tint thanks to minty blue crystals. I like the feel of this gloss, although I wish it lasted longer. I find I need to reapply it often to keep the effect.

Overall, I really like this trio for keeping my summer smile as white as possible. Apa Beauty has all kinds of other great products for keeping teeth white, so head over to their website at apabeauty.com to check them out.  – Lisa
