LISTERINE TOTAL CARE I have always grown up being quite aware of my oral health and taken good care of my teeth. I’ve not ever had a filling and would like it to stay that way. I am not actually a big fan of using mouth wash. I find them too strong and overpowering, and this one is no exception. This product is actually one of the strongest in terms of flavour I have ever used, however I use it becaues the benefits far out weigh the pungent flavour. With 6 big benefits in one including – killing germs, reducing plaque, freshening breath, protects gums, prevents tartar build up and strengthens teeth. It is hard to say no and I cannot deny my mouth needs this and since I am now well beyond the 21st Day Challenge from when I first began using this product, I can safely say my mouth looks, feels and smells a lot more clean and healthy. About a month ago I took my 4 and 2 yr old for their very first dental check up and also booked myself in for a check and clean since I hadn’t been in more than 5 years! Happy to report all is good and I am still cavity free! Yay! NIVEA CREAM I feel like I have been using this classic Nivea Cream since I started using skincare products. I am pretty sure the first time I used this product I was actually ‘borrowing’ it from my sister! This product is the perfect all rounder must have for every person, male and female! It comes in a variety of sizes, so you can have a larger size at home for daily use as well as smaller travel and purse size options available. At the moment I just have this cute little sample pot which I received after applying for a sample. The cream is thick and white and is great for dry and sensitive skin. Even safe enough to use on children and babies skin which has been great over the past 5 years with my two rascals. Can be used all over the body as both a facial and/or body cream. Currently on special at Priceline for $6.64 (200ml)
I have been using this for a few months now and love that it is unisex and my hubby can also enjoy it! The clear glass bottle is so simplistic and minimal and matches any space I store it. The scent is very gender neutral, appealing to both men and women. I usually go for the sweet, floral and girlie scents, however this isn’t any of those things yet doesn’t smell at all masculine either. This is a really fresh and clean scent that doesn’t over power your nose. I have found the fragrance to last throughout the day and can smell it lingering on my skin if I smell my arm. 🙂 This would make a great gift for those who have everything or are difficult to buy for as it would suit just about everyone! Contains top notes of wasabi, mandarin & violet leaf. Middles notes of wet cobblestones, concrete accords, orris root & rose absolute and base notes of vetiver, sandalwood & incense. PRIMAL EARTH MOISTURISER WITH SPF There has just been something in the air lately that has been attracting me to products from New Zealand, (see my NZ skincare routine here!) and this being one of them! My husband visited NZ for a few months before we met and has always raved about how beautiful a place it is, so I wasn’t surprised to find the Primal Earth range of men’s products on his side of the bathroom. Being a naturally curious beauty nut who will try just about anything I had to see if it was any good, as I usually do with any new product I see in the bathroom. I am gonna try it – mine or not! haha! This moisturiser is thick and white and contains an SPF 15 which you can’t even tell is there when you apply it. There is no greasy feel or sunscreen type smell. The smell is actually very natural and uplifting. I really like this one!! Contains Aloe Vera, Green Tea & Harakeke. Available to purchase from Woolworths. COLGATE OPTIC WHITENING PEN This product actually comes in a set with the Colgate Optic White toothbrush but I have to say I only bought it mainly for the whitening pen! I have a bit of an obsession with whitening my teeth as a frequent coffee drinker (more for the buzz and to stay awake and alert than the taste) my teeth have suffered for it and definitely have had whiter, brighter days! The pen is so easy to use, you just twist the bottom around until it clicks a few time and you will see the product begin to ooze out the top. Apply this to your teeth and you’re good to go! I have been applying this right before I go to bed so my tongue doesn’t get busy wondering around my mouth and removing the product. I want it to work with maximum results so I let it sit overnight. I started to see results after about a week and have kept on using it! NIVEA FOR MEN SENSITIVE POST SHAVE BALM With all of the hype around this product recently of course I had to give it a go to see for myself what all the fuss was about. Funnily enough my husband already had and uses this product so it was easy for me to ‘borrow’ it! For women it is said this product makes for a killer makeup primer. I have tried quite a number of different primers and have found pros and cons in each of them, however never actually finding a holy grail I would keep on re-purchasing. So I have been buying and trying out new ones all the time. This product does have a bit of an aroma to it. It is quite pleasant though and not as strong as you might expect a men’s facial product to be. Usually they seem to have a much stronger scent then women’s products in my opinion. After applying the skin feels smooth and dry surprisingly and immediately ready for makeup which stays matte and shine free throughout the day! Gotta love that!
Do you use any of the above products? Are there any you would been keen to try?
