Current Situation – In Need Of A Mommy Makeover


I have been in maternity leave mode for almost 3 months now, carrying around a newborn while chasing a very active two-year-old. Sleep is at a minimum around here, and there is no time to spend on hair and make up these days. I’m getting ready to go back to work soon, and I’d love to do a few things to help feel better about myself. Any “makeover efforts” will have to be at-home due to lack of time and affordable since our budget just got a little tighter with a second child.

A few things on my wish list include dying my roots, an at home tan for a little color, and whitening my teeth. I’m going for the latter first since it’s the easiest process and I thrive on “easy” these days. I’ve been a big fan of Crest 3D toothpaste for months now, and have used Crest Whitestrips for years. I was thrilled when Crest sent me their new 3D White Luxe Professional Effects Whitestrips to try out, and the timing was perfect as they had just landed on my wish list.


Before – My teeth were dull and lackluster. They could use a little lightening and sparkle.


I haven’t whitened my teeth in years, so it was nice to see that Crest had made some improvements to their Whitestrips. The first thing I noticed was their super tight no-slip grip. The strips cling on and stay in place until peeled off. I also like that they stretch for a custom fit.


After – My smile is much whiter and brighter after 20 treatments, once daily for 30 minutes each. Crest 3D Whitestrips Professional Effects is just as effective as professional teeth whitening treatments. These whitestrips are formulated with the same enamel-safe ingredient dentists use. You’ll start seeing a whiter smile after three days, with full results in 20.


I’m not ready to leave my little lady bug just yet, but my appearance is a bit more “work friendly” these days lol. I’ve ditched the men’s pajamas in favor of jeans, brightened my smile, and went for it with a little makeup. Now if I can find a way to get some sleep and ditch the eye bags, I’ll be a happy girl!
