Crest 3D White 2 Hour Express Whitestrips

So last week I had the chance to try out the Crest 3D White 2 Hour Express Whitestrips. I opened the little pack and peeled off two sheer strips, the longest went on the top teeth and the shorter  strip on my lower teeth. I kept on for two hour while blogging and doing some computer work. The good thing is these strips stay put and do not move in my mouth to a point of annoyance. They really stick. I can still talk and keep normal. The box has 4 strips packets and I’ve used 2 in a week or so. My teeth did get brighter and whiter and I love the results. I actually impressed that Crest can do all this at the comfort of my own home. Ha! Here’s the proof (see below pic).

On attending the show, Scarlett Johansson said: “It’s so exciting to be here at the Dolce&Gabbana Fashion Show.

Prada Spring/Summer 2012 collection

Redken Creative Consultant Guido created hair with a bit of an edge at Prada today, which offset the beautiful Spring/Summer 2012 collection. “The look for Prada today is a bit like a girl curling her hair and putting in a bobby pin before going out at night- she did her hair herself. It’s kind of homemade, not finished, the hair of a woman with a David Lynch darkness– she’s more night than day with her hair. But she is overall a Prada woman because there is a refinement to her quirkiness.”–Guido, Redken Creative Consultant
