Wedding Beauty Prep with Optic White

I never thought I would be one of those girls, with tons of beauty products all of which are essential. Heck, until college I never washed my face with anything besides regular old Dove soap, rarely used hair products, and had a makeup bag that only contained concealer, powder, mascara and eyeliner. Somehow things changed, and now, as I'm entering the final countdown for my wedding, I've been using a ton of products to make sure I have the clearest skin, the shiniest hair, and the whitest smile for the big day.

One of the new products I tried to get ready for the big day is Colgate® Optic White® Express White toothpaste, which whitens teeth in just 3 days* just by brushing! I've used other whitening products in the past, but they usually take so long to work that I either give up or forget to keep using them (ahem, short attention span much?). I have a ton on my brain right now (and saved in eighteen billion Google docs) so I love that this whitening system isn't something I have to actively remember to do, because to use the Express White all I have to remember to do is brush my teeth.

The best part is? It actually works! The Colgate® Optic White® Express White toothpaste has 2x the professionally recommended whitening ingredient (vs Optic White Sparkling Mint toothpaste) so it really does the trick. I grabbed the Express White toothpaste at my local city Walmart the other day (yep, we have those in Chicago now!) while I was picking up some other daily essentials - while other people may find it on a fancy endcap display, I found it on the shelf with Colgate's other whitening toothpastes:

I'm glad to have whiter teeth checked off my to-do list, since it's still about a mile long! Now I can focus on the rest of my wedding prep.

*For best results, use as directed for 4 weeks

  1. I use that toothpaste and it really does do amazing things!

  2. My nails are superrrr weak as well. I've heard a lot about Biotin, so I should try it!
