At Home Teeth Whitening with Smile Brilliant

‘Keep a smile on your face, it’s the best accessory you can wear.’

When Smile Brilliant reached out asking if I wanted to try out their product, I jumped at the chance! Who wouldn’t want to whiten their teeth in the comfort of their own home for a fraction of the price of a professional teeth whitening treatment through a dentist?!

 I have always been on the hunt for a product that guarantees a whiter smile. Being a self-proclaimed coffee addict (and a girl who loves a good glass of red wine), has caused my teeth to not be as bright as I would like. I’ve tried White Strips in the past but the strips always seemed to slide off and caused my teeth to be extremely sensitive. I’ve also tried other whitening toothpastes and mouthwashes but never seemed to be wowed at the results (plus my teeth were always so sensitive with these products!). I decided that professional teeth whitening through my dentist would be the best option, but I could never justify spending over $500 for the treatment. 

Since I’ve never had amazing results with past teeth whitening products, I admit I was a bit skeptical of the Smile Brilliant product at first. Nevertheless, I was excited to try it out and am so glad I did! 

Here’s an overview of how the process went. I first answered a few questions about my dental history and about a week later received a Smile Brilliant kit in the mail. The Smile Brilliant kit included professional whitening gel syringes, desensitizing gel syringes, 2 impression trays and fool-proof instructions on how to create your molds. I was nervous I would mess up the molds but the step by step instructions are so easy to follow. Plus, the kit even includes an extra set of material in case you make a mistake. Once I made my top and bottom molds, I sent them back to Smile Brilliant in the provided pre-addressed envelope. About a week or so later, I received my custom whitening trays and was ready to officially start the whitening process!

The custom-made teeth whitening trays are such an amazing element of the Smile Brilliant whitening kit. They’re guaranteed to stay in place throughout the process so you don’t have to worry about them sliding around or off your teeth! I whitened my teeth about every other day for the first week. After the first use, I experienced a bit of sensitivity on a few of my bottom teeth. This is where the desensitizing gel comes in. The gel is made to help prevent your teeth from feeling sensitive during the whitening process. I used this product every time I whitened and was amazed that I hardly ever (except for my first day) experienced sensitivity afterwards. I love this product and highly recommend it! Another tip I learned from a Smile Brilliant representative is to coat your gums with vaseline or coconut oil if you’re experiencing any irritation on the gums.  

Smile Brilliant recommends whitening your teeth anywhere from 45 minutes up to 3 hours. In the beginning, I started with an hour application and continued to increase the time throughout the process. I recommend whitening before bed since it is recommended to not eat or drink for thirty minutes afterwards. Grab a good book and you’re ready to go!

I am so impressed with the Smile Brilliant whitening kit and would definitely recommend it! My smile is whiter and brighter and I plan on continuing to use this product!

If you have any questions about the product, please let me know as I’d be happy to help! For additional information, you can read the article 10 Facts Everyone Should Know About Teeth Whitening or watch this YouTube review

Mother’s Day Gift Ideas

1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6 / 7 / 8 /

With Mother’s Day right around the corner, I wanted to share some gift ideas with y’all for your sweet mommas! Mother’s Day is the perfect time to spoil your momma. Moms love to spend all of their time and energy on everyone but themselves, so it’s such a great day to show your mom how appreciated she is! My momma is my best friend and the strongest woman I know, I could go on for hours explaining how much she means to me! 


Over the past few years, jewelry has been one of my favorite gifts to give for Mother’s Day. Not only are jewelry pieces timeless, but personalized pieces are so sentimental. I love to give personalized pieces such as monogrammed necklaces and bracelets. A few years ago, I gifted my momma this necklace with the coordinates of Rome, Italy. It was always a dream of ours to go there so I thought this would be a sweet sentiment to remind her of our memories from the trip!

Plan a Mother & Daughter/Son Outing/Trip

Planning an activity for you and your momma is a guaranteed gift that your momma will love! Some activity ideas can be a weekend getaway to somewhere your momma loves or has always wanted to go, a paint and sip wine night, a concert, a winery, girls night in (bring on the bubbly, facial masks and chick flicks!) etc. There are so many options and what’s better than spending quality time with your momma?!


What momma doesn’t love to be pampered?! A spa day, mani/pedi or a massage is a great idea to gift your momma some well-deserved relaxation. Some other pampering ideas could be gifting a candle and a cozy robe (don’t forget to include some champagne for a nice touch!).

Another idea is to gift your mom with an at home teeth whitening treatment, such as Smile Brilliant. I received great results from Smile Brilliant last year (you can read my review here)!

Personalized Stationary 

My momma is the Queen of to do lists (I definitely inherited that trait from her!). Everything from personalized stationary to personalized cards is something a mom is guaranteed to use and love.

I hope you all have a wonderful week! Thank you so much for reading! xo
