Crest Whitening Strips & Other Randomness

So today, I got my Lush newspaper in the post and I'm so excited about the products they've released for this season!
I'll be blogging about their products if I have the time to visit the shop (which, of course, I will have!)...

Packed with all the information on their new products (& old). I have my eye on a load of them...

Crest Whitening Strips

I got these a long while ago after reading (on average) great reviews about it; wondering what the fuss was all about.
I'll go straight to the point: this didn't work so much for me. I noticed a slight difference and this was after a week of using the strips, twice a day. 2 weeks into it and I didn't notice much of a difference. So I don't know why most reviews on these strips are good! But 'they don't impress me much' (for those who know Shania Twain, remember her song? Bad joke attempt...)

Here is its contents. I took a picture of everything, as usual.

'Noticeable Whitening after 3 days' - Really?

The contents...

The Strips (Back & Front)

And finally, the actual stuff!

As you can see, there are 2 layers. One is longer than the other. The longer strip is meant for your bottom set of teeth; the latter is meant for your upper set of teeth.
It's advised that you leave this in for 30 minutes, 2 times a day.

The bad side is if you have sensitive teeth, you will more than likely, suffer some tooth ache (feels like a dull ache) after using this for a few days. I experienced it.
What I don't like about this also, is, this contains hydrogen peroxide.

Hydrogen Peroxide + Toothache = somehow doesn't seem like a good result to me!

Sure, it might whiten your teeth visibly (it didn't do this for me), but as much as Crest (and other online sites) insists this is safe to use... I have my own opinion!

Since then, I've stuck to Blanx Whitening Toothpaste.


Balenciaga Multicolour Leather Small Motorcycle Handbag

Whilst window shopping briefly, I spotted this bag on sale at BrandAlley (it was unsurprisingly sold out as it was on promotion) & it sure did captivate me (hence this post). I don't usually like abstract colours or odd combinations. However, this bag had an edge that I like... and I found myself liking this odd set of colours on the bag. See it for yourself. I just had to post it here.

Liking the boldness...

Forever Sunshine Body Lotion by the Bath & Body Works

This is my favourite lotion at the moment! I'm amazed at its scent... so fresh, feminine, sweet...reminds me of milk, honey, toffee...
The scent lingers on (strongly enough) for the whole day (yes... the entire day!) & you only need a small amount.
I'm very impressed with this lotion. I didn't have an expectation for it so it did catch me offguard.
Unfortunately, this is only available in the US =( so if you're lucky, you might spot one online somewhere!
I had a look on their main site and they had an offer for 'Buy 3 Get 3 Free' - only problem is...they don't ship to Europe. So this is a let down!

Also this is the first product I have used from the Bath & Body Works. Moisturising & calm sweet scenting...


I forgot to mention. You can get other types of Baths & Body Work products at this site:
Check them out. They have a load of cool stuff - Burt's Bees, Victoria's Secret, Bath Bombs and so on.

Yay for bad jokes hehehe
listerine strips worked a little better, but a secret is baking powder and / or strawberries!

A friend of mine's friend got it from America! However, I found this site that sells Bath & Body Works products (including Victoria's Secret! but I prefer B&B Works much more) here...:
