Dickinson's Witch Hazel Oil Control Towelettes

I have a wedding coming up, April 27th to be exact, and I've been really reluctant to try any new products. I feel like the last thing I need is some kind of full frontal face explosion to worry about a few days before my wedding. I did a lot of research and saw a lot of positive reviews on the Dickinson's Witch Hazel Oil Control Towelettes. The biggest complaint I seemed to see had more to do with the price than the product. I actually find the price to be quite reasonable. If you're at Walgreens you can get a box of 20 for $7.79 (but the website saves you $3.30 so you can get 20 for $4.49.) If you pop over to Amazon.com you can get the same box of 20 for $8.13 or do a combo of the towelettes and the toner for $16.23. Price is all about how you shop. I personally think it's a good price because the product works.

I have combination skin and these have really helped to keep my skin clean throughout the day. It's so convenient to slip a packet into my purse or my clutch and I have it when I need it. They are so gentle and leave me feeling extremely refreshed. My only complaint is, is that the smell isn't a favorite of mine. I think I may be witch hazel intolerant, BUT the product is so amazing that I don't care!

This definitely isn't your grandmother's witch hazel! I'd highly recommend this product to anyone looking for more radiant skin. People are going to notice and comment on how great your complexion is, and want to know what you have been using!

Colgate Optic White Review

I wouldn't exactly call myself a toothpaste snob, but I'm definitely funny about what goes into my mouth (no pun intended.) Previously we were using Crest 3D White toothpaste. Right on the tube it says, "Whitens: Can remove up to 80% of surface stains in 14 days." Who isn't going to jump on that? Sadly, we are nearly finished with the 2 tubes (buy in bulk, right?) and neither of us (my fiance or myself) have noticed any differences. Maybe we were looking too hard or maybe we weren't looking hard enough, but nothing too exciting going on for us.
Before receiving the Colgate Optic White Collection from Influenster, we were already the proud owners of the Colgate 360 Optic White Toothbrush. A fantastic little device. It has polishing bristles that polish away the surface stains and a tongue and cheek cleaner on the backside, which comfortably helps remove that odor causing bacteria. We have nothing but awesome things to say about that tooth brush. We both purchased the "soft" bristles, because it's our preference, and it's a very comfortable tooth brush.

When a product says anything about noticeable results in a week, I tend to roll my eyes. Nothing works in a week. But that is what this toothpaste claims and it was a claim I was willing to refute. I started using this toothbrush on a Saturday and by the next Friday I could see a big difference. A "hey, look at those teeth" difference. I couldn't deny it, I couldn't find fault, it really works. The mouthwash doesn't have the most pleasant taste, but I've become a firm believer that if the mouthwash tastes good, it's probably not doing good (so I can live with the not so awesome taste.)

I'm not sure if it's because I've been using the whole collection together or what, but Colgate has really put together an awesome trio here!
