Standout Beauty Products I’m Currently Loving:

This month I found two fantastic beauty products that I’m loving!

Colgate Optic White Toothbrush + Whitening Pen

The first product I discovered this month is a toothbrush that holds a tooth-whitening product inside. Can’t remember to whiten your teeth with most products? Well this little guy sits inside your toothbrush, so it’s a constant reminder that it’s easy and simple to use. The product itself is interesting because you apply it to your teeth and leave it on, no need to wipe it off. I tend to use my sonicare Oral B toothbrush which is fabulous but I also use a regular toothbrush as a pre-brush and in the morning to gently exfoliate my lips. I’ve been using this every few days and I honestly noticed a difference after the very few times using it. Such a win! I got mine at Target, don’t forget to use your RedCard for an extra 5% off!

EcoTools Facial Mask Sponges

The second product I discovered this month was courtesy of my seasonal Walmart Beauty Box. This is a seasonal box that’s technically free and you only pay $5 for the shipping. It delivers 4 times a year and I highly recommend it. I’ve found a couple of great inexpensive beauty product items over the past year, such as today’s product. I got a sample 2-pack of mask remover sponges from EcoTools and you can buy a 3-pack in stores for $3.97! These little guys are seriously one of the best beauty product tools I’ve found in a long time. They’re super cheap and super amazing! They save tons of water and time. If you’re like me and you love applying face masks but don’t love the time and mess it takes to rinse some of the more stubborn masks off, these sponges are the best thing ever. The sponges can also be used to wash your face with your regular cleanser but I haven’t tried them for that. I will say it again, these are FANTASTIC. Go buy some now! If you order online the colors that come are varied and in the stores I saw green and yellow. You can buy these on amazon but you’ll be robbed at a selling price of $12 instead of $4 for the 3-pack. Honestly, who buys this sort of thing for that kind of markup on Amazon?
