Brand Review — Moon Oral Care

Hi all!  I hope you’re having a great weekend! I’m back with a new brand review.

I was sent products from Moon Oral Care for my honest review.

The claim for the brand is oral care reimagined with better design and only the best ingredients. Taking care of your teeth shouldn’t just be something you have to do – it should be something you want to do. Finally. A routine worthy of your countertop.

I do really love the packaging of this.  Below are the products I received:


Clean Slide Flossers ($4.99) — Durable waxed material is strong but flexible to easily clean around teeth and gums. Comfortable, no slide grip and invigorating fresh mint flavor.

Graphite Gray Clean Slide Floss ($3.99) — Clean sliding, PFA-free waxed dental floss that cleans deep and doesn’t tear.  100% Vegan and not tested on animals

Stain Removal Fluoride-Free Whitening Toothepaste ($7.99) —A whitening toothpaste that works for a brighter smile and long-lasting fresh feeling. Multi-dimensional peppermint blend to deliver the ultimate flavor experience. An elevated look and velvety smooth feel you’ll love. 100% Vegan and not tested on animals. Made in the USA with globally-sourced ingredients.

Teeth Whitening Pen by Kendall Jenner ($19.99) The ultimate on-the-go whitener. Made with their proprietary Elixir III blend of antioxidants and essential oils for an elevated, powerful whitening experience.

Activated Charcoal Mouth Rinse ($8.99) The ideal balance of activated charcoal and antioxidants for the best alcohol-free mouth rinse.

Soft Bristle Toothbrush 2 Pack ($6.99) An adult toothbrush designed for simplicity, sophistication and visible results.

What I think: I really enjoy these products from Moon Oral Care. The flavor of these is a delicious mint.  It is refreshing but not too strong.

My favorite product is probably the teeth whitening pen.  I’ve only been using it for a few days, and I can already see a whitening effect.  The directions say to use it twice a day for two weeks.  I’m going to keep using it for a full two weeks and I hope to see great results.

I also love all of the other products!  I like the toothpaste and although this one doesn’t have fluoride, they do sell one that does. The mouth wash is amazing as well.  It tastes great and is so refreshing.  The floss and flossers work well and are very affordable.  And the toothbrushes are cute and really effective!

Probably my favorite part of using these products is that they don’t irritate my extremely sensitive gums and teeth.  Most teeth whitening products do irritate and I have to stop using them after a few days. I am using all of these together and my teeth and gums feel fine.


I really recommend Moon Oral Care!  It’s affordable and very effective.  You can purchase these products on




My Beauty Favorites — Week of October 30 – November 5, 2017

It really feels like fall in Kansas City now, it’s much cooler, which I am loving.  I can finally wear my boots!

This week, I’ve been loving a whitening toothpaste, a luxe velvet lipstick and a liquid eyeliner:

Luster Power White Deep Stain Eraser Fluoride Toothpaste ($6.99 USD) — This two in one toothpaste will not only cleanse your teeth and freshen your breath, but it will also whiten surface and deep stains. There is no need to buy a separate cleanser and whitener. Power White Deep Stain Eraser® Fluoride Toothpaste combines these two steps in one.

What I think:  This is an effective whitening toothpaste.  It leaves my teeth clean and it does freshen my breath. It is a bit harsh on my sensitive gums, though, so I can only use it once a day.  I definitely recommend it for quickly removing stains.

Purchase at

ECRU New York Velvet Air Lipstick

ECRU New York Velvet Air Lipstick ($24 USD) –A velvet lip color that glides on lips leaving an airy, weightless cushion of long lasting color. A single swipe of your finger transforms this moisturizing satin color into a true matte finish.

What I think:  I was sent this in Mulberry (the top, dark color in the photo above) and it is perfect for fall.  It’s a really pretty dark berry.  The lipstick is hydrating, but can also be made matte by tapping with your finger.  I like the original finish, though.  It looks really rich.

Available at


Rimmel London Scandaleyes Bold Liquid Eyeliner

Rimmel London Scandaleyes Bold Liquid Eyeliner ($2.99 USD) –Intense glossy color that lasts all day and night, up to 24 hour wear. Fade, transfer and waterproof. Innovative round tip applicator for a bold look

What I think: This is a very black liquid eyeliner! It has a round ball tip that makes it so easy for me to use.  I make a thick line with a wing very easily!  It applies very smoothly and stays on all day!

Purchase at mass market retailers near you

Colgate Optic White

Colgate Optic White Regimen
Colgate Optic White Regimen

I was sent the Colgate Optic White Regimen to review from Influenster.  (Check out, they send out great products to try.  Comment on this post if you would like an invitation to join).

The claim of these products: The collection of Colgate® Optic White® products whitens more than 3 shades* and results start in one week. With Colgate® Optic White®, the only accessory you need to look fabulous is your smile. *based on twice daily use for 4 weeks.

The products are:

Colgate® Optic White® toothpaste – Whitens more than 3 shades*, results start in one week. Try our three different flavors and see which one is best for you!

  • Sparkling Mint
  • Cool Mild Mint
  • Enamel White
New Optic White™ Mouthwash — the perfect complement to Colgate® Optic White® Toothpaste. Designed with a dynamic foaming action to reach hard-to-brush places, it helps whiten teeth by removing surface stains. This alcohol-free solution is available in a Sparkling Fresh Mint flavor to freshen breath while whitening teeth, and contains polyphosphates to prevent future stains.
The Optic White® Toothbrush — For optimal whitening results, use a Colgate® 360°® Optic White® Toothbrush. It helps whiten your teeth in two important ways:

Whitening cups. These soft rubber cups are designed to hold toothpaste to more effectively remove surface stains for a whiter smile.

Polishing bristles. Help whiten teeth by polishing away surface stains and clean hard-to-reach areas for a full white smile.

I have to say that my favorite item in the bunch is the toothbrush.  It really gets teeth clean.  I also liked the toothpaste as it cleans, whitens and freshens breath.  The mouthwash was too strong for me and hurt my sensitive teeth so I only used it once.
After using the toothpaste until it ran out, I can tell you that my teeth do look whiter.  I will definitely purchase the toothpaste and toothbrush again!

Crest 3D White Professional Effects Whitestrips

Crest 3D White Professional Effects Whitestrips

A little over a month ago, I received Crest 3D White Professional Effects Whitestrips complimentary through Influenster (

From the #1 most awarded whitening brand by beauty editors, Crest 3D White Professional Effects Whitestrips remove over 10 years of set-in stains and “whiten 25X better than the leading toothpaste*”.  Their motto is: If You’re Not Whitening, You’re Yellowing.

Crest 3D White Whitestrips Professional Effects is thin, flexible strips that are coated with a tooth whitening gel containing peroxide. Designed to conform to the shape of your teeth, they work by keeping the whitening gel on your teeth for 30 minutes once a day to get at stain build-up on and below the tooth’s surface. After 20 days, you’ll get long-lasting, professional-level whitening.

I have been loving these Whitestrips!  I am almost done with my 20 days.  My teeth are so much whiter!  The only thing I don’t love is that they make my extremely sensitive teeth ache.

I would purchase these about once a year to keep my teeth white. Visit to learn more!

Instantly Whiten Teeth With Luster NOW

Luster NOW

Luster has just announced the debut of a revolutionary new way to instantly whiten your teeth at home.  Luster Premium White, which offers a collection of at-home whitening products, has come up with a solution unlike anything available – Luster NOW Instant Whitening Toothpaste  ($9.99 USD)  for a fast fix to the white smile you have been dreaming about.

Power up your smile with an instantly white, dazzlingly solution that lasts for hours – perfect before a night on the town, a first date or a party! Dentist developed and perfect for everyday use, Luster NOW is infused with Bluverite™ technology that instantly makes teeth appear whiter with just one brushing. This revolutionary ingredient delivers a special optical effect to make teeth appear instantly white for hours. In addition to the instant whitening effect, the toothpaste uses Luster’s whitening power to gradually whiten smile over time. After brushing with Luster NOW the Bluverite technology may make teeth and gums appear slightly blue, but this will disappear after a few minutes to reveal a white smile!

Directions: Brush teeth thoroughly with Luster NOW following meals or twice daily. If excessive blue appears on teeth or gums simply swish with water to reveal your dazzling smile.

What I think: I have never tried anything like this before. It is like makeup for your teeth, with added benefits of long-term whitening. You brush it on and your teeth are instantly whiter — I would say a few shades. I also love how the whitening powder is brightening my teeth over time as well. Very cool. This is very affordable and you get three 1.5 oz toothpastes that you can take anywhere. 

Luster NOW is available at Walgreens nationwide. Enjoy!
