Luster Premium White Review: teeth whitening that really works!

Recently, BzzAgent sent me some Luster Premium White products to review. I love getting a chance to try products I wouldn't normally buy in the store. It's amazing how often there's something out there that seems to do exactly what it promises but I'm not familiar with the product. Thanks to BzzAgent, I'm hooked on Luster Premium White.

I really didn't believe my teeth could get noticeably whiter after using a toothpaste once or twice. My teeth are already pretty bright and white, but I have some yellow areas from when I was a kid and probably could use some help offsetting years of my soda habit. I figured I wouldn't be able to get my teeth any whiter without expensive bleaching.

I tried the Luster Now! toothpaste only twice before I had amazing results that kind of blew my mind. They look like I had them done at the dentist! I put on a reddish lipstick just to see if my eyes were playing tricks on me (warm reds tend to leave my teeth looking yellow) but ummm, wow! I'll probably alternate with a normal toothpaste, but Luster Now! will be a fixture in our house from now on.

My husband tried the toothpaste just once and had noticeable results as well. He's picky and he even noticed an amazing difference. 

Since BzzAgent sent me a kit with the Distinctly White Dual-Action Teeth Whitening System, I tried that as well. In just two days, you're supposed to see results pretty fast. I followed the directions, swishing with the provided mouthwash and then applying this gel to each of the visible teeth. Applying it is a bit tricky because it's clear and drippy, so trying to avoid my gums, keep my teeth dry while applying, and seeing if I've hit every visible area was not too easy. However, the results were worth the effort. My teeth stayed brighter and whiter for about a week!

This isn't a permanent whitening or bleaching system. It's definitely temporary. However, I experienced no side effects. My teeth and gums never felt sensitive. It's super quick and the results are very noticeable.

If you're curious about the whitening system, I made a quick video of the application process that's hosted through BzzAgent: http://bcove.me/ky3jxu20

  1. I use strips and I couldn’t be any happier. :) The brand is Stella white. They don’t contain the illegal chemical peroxide and the result is really great!

    1. The use of small amounts of peroxide for at-home teeth whitening products is not illegal in the United States. As of 2013, in the UK, a small percentage is allowed as well, though elsewhere in Europe, the laws may differ. You are correct that Stella's strips don't have peroxide, but those are not available in the United States.

      Luster's manufacturer is the only company in the US to have an FDA approved light-based lightening product and their other products like Luster White are safe to use when used as directed. They're definitely less sensitizing than Crest Whitestrips and similar products, in my experience, and most definitely less sensitizing than the stuff I got from my dentist, while working equally well.

Pottery Barn Kids Lunch Bags: Cute, but Annoying

When my daughter transitioned to "big kid school" this fall, I bought her a personalized lunch bag from Pottery Barn Kids. This was our first time having to send lunch to school, so I wanted her to enjoy carrying the bag and also have it be practical. She's just turning 4, so it was important that she be able to open the bag herself and carry it from the car to the lunch cart without assistance.

Pottery Barn Kids offers a slew of fabric patterns and four bag styles. Penny picked the MacKenzie Chocolate Zebra classic lunch bag, which is a fairly standard size and shape lunch box. We paid $7 to have her name embroidered on the bag, which I figured was worth the price to ensure her box isn't mixed up with another kid's lunch. I let Penny pick the font and thread color and ordered online.

Our classic lunch bag has now been used every weekday for nearly three months, but it looks more like a year old. It's still functional in that Penny can carry it in to school, o…

Switching from Olay Regenerist to L'Oreal RevitaLift

I've been using Olay Regenerist DNA Superstructure UV Cream for years now. I love the SPF 25 (it's now 30) the thick moisturizing quality, and how fresh my skin feels once it's absorbed. It's really thick, so it tends to need more time before I put on foundation, and it does leave my skin a touch lighter than it is in real life. The sunscreen ingredients mean this moisturizer smells just like traditional sun protection, and even a bit like my daughter's diaper cream (ick), but I know it's doing it's job and I've been really happy with it.


I intended to buy some more during a trip to Walmart today, but L'Oreal RevitaLift Triple Power Day Lotion had a $2 off coupon attached, and the base price was less than the Olay product, so I took a chance and bought  the RevitaLift instead.


L'Oreal's bottle is prettier with a similar pump mechanism. Like Olay, the product is in an opaque container, which helps keep the contents from being affected by ligh…

eSalon.com Hair Color Review

It's now May 2014 and since my original review, I've had a chance to fly out to eSalon and see how orders are processed, learn the right way to apply color, and find out the differences between box color and eSalon color. I learned a lot and have a totally different perspective now and would definitely recommend giving eSalon a try.

When you order from eSalon, be sure to upload a current, well-lit photo of your hair and don't hesitate to ask their color experts for advice. The eSalon team are experts. Let them help you find the right shade and apply color correctly. It's a learning process if you're used to box color products.

Last August, I tried eSalon. At the time, I found the color was fine in that it was even and matched what I had seen online for that shade, but it wasn't really what I was going for. eSalon's customer service was helpful, with a colorist calling to explain how their product differs from what I buy in-store and the risks of going darke…
