Colgate MaxFresh: Freshness Unleashed

The product that I'm going to review is the Colgate Fluoride Toothpaste with Whitening. It's under the Maxfresh with mouthwash beads that give it a minty fresh aroma and feel. This toothpaste is meant to freshen breath, whiten teeth, fight cavities, and helps fight germs with brushing! The inside of the toothpaste is actually infused with dissolvable mini mouthwash beads which are those tiny white bead like dots you see in the light green transparent toothpaste. The smell is definitely like any typical average pepperminty scent and so it smells amazing! I absolutely adore the unique color and the extra-added beads, which you can imagine why this toothpaste is one of my favorites with a solid 10/10 stars! 

The active ingredient is sodium floride at point twenty-four percent and the purpose is for anti-cavity. That is to say, its use is to help protect against cavities. There are directions for children of at least age 2 to use a pea size to adults to brush teeth thoroughly after each meal or at least twice a day. The inactive ingredient consist of sorbitol, water, hydrate silica, PEG-12, sodium lauryl sulfate, flavor, cellulose gum, tetrasodium pyrophosphate, cocamidoproply betaine, sodium saccharin, lactose monohydrate, FD&C blue no. 1, FD&C yellow no. 5.

Finished up the entire tube of Colgate MaxFresh toothpaste!
I'll conclude with a tip on the side for healthy teeth: brush your teeth at least twice a day, floss daily, and visit your dentist regularly. Which I know might not be easy for some of us, but we got to do what we got to do in order to keep those pearly whites shiny and looking healthy and beautiful! I really think this toothpaste is worth giving a try, and it doesn't hurt to compare it to your current toothpaste to see if you like it more or not! I know I certainly prefer this to other toothpastes that I've tried and would probably continue to purchase this again in the future.

Disclaimer: This product was purchased by my boyfriend. This review was my honest opinion and I was not compensated for this review in any way. I just happened to really like this toothpaste, so I wanted to write a review for it! :)

Suave PROFESSIONALS KERATIN INFUSION Dry ShampooA while back, I got a email from Total Beauty asking if I'd wanted to test out the Sauve Professionals Keratin Infusion products for review purposes and I replied saying I would be delighted to do so. So here's my review on the Dry Shampoo for all hair types sent to me from Total Beauty.
Here was the product that was sent to me for review: 

The very first thing I would say is the scent. It is a very strong chemical scent that I do not find pleasant and so if there was one reason as to not to try this product, it's because of that strong scent. I shook the product well before application as according to the directions on the back. Although, the instructions goes on to say during application as well and I can't imagine how I can shake the product while applying, I suppose that would mean to shake the product around my head. I did spray it about 9 inches away, or rather my best estimate of nine inches and ran my fingers through my hair to remove the excess powder. When I spray the dry shampoo on, it's an almost a feel of rush of air that's pushed on my hair. Before i know it, the scent overwhelms my senses. However, I'm lucky to say that within about 10 minutes, the scent does dissipate (or my nose grew accustomed to the strange scent). 

Suave PROFESSIONALS KERATIN INFUSION Dry ShampooIt claims that the keratin infusion & absorbs oil to refresh hair, extend blowout, and revive volume. For me, it really does absorb excess oil and helps my hair stay more matte. That's really what I'd expect from a dry shampoo, to help absorb oil and keep my hair refreshed in-between my hair washes for when I do use regular shampoo and conditioner. My hair does feel smooth and manageable, so that's a plus! I'd just wish the scent was better. 

On the front, under SALON PROVEN, it states "TO REFRESH AS WELL AS BUMBLE AND BUMBLE". I'm not quite sure what that is suppose to mean. I really think I'm going to have to rate this an 8/10. I can't quite compare it to other dry shampoos since this is the very first dry shampoo that I've used but it's relatively inexpensive. I found it on amazon for $3.49 Go ahead, give it a try, it's meant for all hair types.
