My Hair's Secret Weapon + Giveaway!

April 10, 2019

      

You all know in my life as a fitness instructor I have to wash my hair quite a bit, which honestly just breaks my heart into pieces as someone who formally only had to wash their hair a couple of times a week. I was SO excited with Formulate reached out to me asking if I wanted to try out their individually customized shampoo & conditioner. I wanted to create a shampoo & conditioner that washed my hair without stripping it, and also protected my strands.

One of my favorite parts of the entire Formulate process was the survey. They asked a lot of great questions like if your hair is color treated, how often you usually wash, what your hair concerns are, etc. My favorite part was that it used my location to compare with the weather forecast for the upcoming 60 days to add sun and weather protection into my formulation based on my city... how cool is that?! You also got to custom choose the scent. I went with a Citrus Orange scent (one of the all-natural options) and it honestly smells like heaven.  Once I ordered the product, Formulate kept me up-to-date on how my special product was being created. 

Once I received the shampoo & conditioner set, I was really pleased with not only the product itself, but also the aesthetics... I mean, how pretty do these bottles look in my shower? After using the product, I couldn't believe how not only clean, but soft & strong my hair felt. I also feel like my hair is doing better with being heat styled, which is a major plus!

Thanks to Formulate, one of YOU is going to be getting their own bespoke shampoo & conditioner! So exciting! To enter just visit this link here: https://www.formulate.co/u/molliebellezza 



Good luck & enjoy your future good hair days.

Whiter Teeth for Our Wedding! + A Giveaway

November 16, 2018



Since I was about a Junior in High school, I have loved having white teeth. I think since my smile is such a huge part of my face and personality (hey, I'm a pretty smiley chick!) that it always made me feel so much more confident having pearly-whites.
I have tried basically everything from the drugstore: whitening toothpaste, mouth wash, strips that make my teeth so sensitive and don't stay on very well, at-home boiling trays, etc. Everything worked fine, but there was always something I was giving up when using these. Whether it was convenience, being able to speak, a bad taste in my mouth during use... you name it! I found keeping my teeth white at home always came with some kind of caveat.

That is why I was so excited with Smile Brilliant reached out. I had seen a few people I followed online using this system and was always intrigued, but never really put in any real research.

Disclaimer: I was gifted the Smile Brilliant kit in exchange for social promotion; however, all opinions are my own and this post includes my honest review of the products.


Before Smile Brilliant


After Smile Brilliant
The entire process was very easy. Smile Brilliant sent me one of their kits in which you create your molds at home. This was honestly really fun. You mix the two mold agents together like silly putty, and once it turns purple, you place it in the try and mold your teeth to it. After the molds are complete, you send them back to Smile Brilliant and in just a few days, you get custom-molded whitening trays sent right to your door, which is SO cool! Along with the trays came the whitening agent, as well as desensitizing gel. I had mentioned previous whiteners made my teeth sensitive, so they suggest the package with the gel to help with sensitivity, which was so helpful!


As far as the whitening process, it was so easy. You place a portion of the syringe of whitening agent in the trays and place the trays in your mouth for 45 minutes - 3 hours. Since the trays are perfectly molded to your teeth, life is very easy while you are whitening! I was able to prepare dinner, do laundry, even a light workout with my trays in. When I was done, I just rinsed out the trays with warm water, and if needed repeated the same process with the desensitizing gel to keep my teeth from getting sensitive overnight.

I felt like every time I took the trays out, I had obvious results, which I loved! It worked so well, that my Fiance at the time (now husband) ordered a kit and used it before our wedding too. We both felt so confident and smiley all day long at our wedding, and it was definitely in-part due to the Smile Brilliant Whitening kits!
