How I naturally Whiten my teeth for under $8

coconut oil pulling

Getting your teeth professionally whitened is not only expensive, time-consuming, but also dangerous.  I have close friends and family members relay stories of how having their teeth professionally whitened by dentist destroyed their enamel and caused them to have super sensitive teeth. Of course, not everyone will have that experience if you wish to go that route, but I have found a super safe, simple and affordable way to whiten teeth at home. It involves one ingredient, takes 5 minutes max, and costs less than $8. That remedy is… coconut oil pulling.

The Face Cleansing balm that Mositurizes while removing makeup

counterbeauty face cleansing balm review

Oh how much I love a beauty product that multitasks! If a product makes my life easier, I’ll love it to the end.

I recently tested the Beautycounter Cleansing Balm. It is a natural face cleansing balm (read: no parabens, phthalates, synthetic fragrances, PEGS, SLS or secrets) that hydrates your skin while removing grit from the day.

Added bonus! It is so easy (and fun) to use.  The product comes in a beautiful glass container. There is a soft, linen, cleansing towel to help remove the product, and two plastic wands to help scoop the product from the container. The wands keep it sanitary so you don’t double dip and helps prevents any bacteria from your hands to mix with the product.

How To Use

Placing the face cleansing balm into my hands, I used circular motions on my face. The balm melted effortlessly into my skin, nearly instantaneously. The makeup lifted easily as well and my face began to shine. Next, I took the cloth that was supplied and dampen it with warm water. I gently removed the balm and residue with the cloth. Afterward, I washed away the rest of the balm with cold water. All done!  While other makeup removers are harsh and drying, I noticed an immediate softness to my skin. I highly recommend this product. It is a super easy way to keep your skin fresh all Summer long!
