Crest 3D White Whitestrips Luxe Supreme FlexFit Challenge…

The new Crest 3D White Whitestrips Luxe Supreme FlexFit strips [$34] claim to whiten as well as a $500 in-office pro treatment so I am DOWN!  In Paris there was PLENTY of red wine, cafe creme and all kinds of other stain magnets so I started while I was there.  Now is the perfect time to try and obliterate some of the damage done while I was gone (I am excited to see how this turns out!!)

The Rundown:

  • Helps whiten teeth as well as a $500 professional teeth whitening treatment
  • The FlexFit technology allows Whitestrips to stretch and mold to custom fit your smile for superior coverage and improved application
  • Provides 30% more coverage to whiten more teeth
  • The no slip grip stays put so you can talk and drink water while whitening teeth
  • Dramatically whiter smile
  • Uses the same enamel-safe teeth whitening agent dentists use

 

In the box, you get 28 strips that you use once a day for one hour….I started using mine in Paris so I am almost halfway through the box!  I have also been using the Crest 3D White Luxe toothpaste as well.

Shopping at the World Famous Galeries Lafayette in Paris…

Galeries Lafayette in Paris is an EXPERIENCE. The afternoon of our second day in Paris was spent at the world famous Galeries Lafayette department store which was founded in 1895.  It is a STUNNING 10 story masterpiece in the middle of Paris on Boulevard Haussmann in the 9th arrondissement of Paris.

A little background:

In 1895, Théophile Bader and his cousin Alphonse Kahn opened a fashion store in a small haberdasher’s shop at the corner of rue La Fayette and the Chaussée d’Antin, in Paris.[1] In 1896, their company purchased the entire building at n°1 rue La Fayette; in 1905 they acquired the buildings at n°38, 40 and 42, boulevard Haussmann and n°15 rue de la Chaussée d’Antin. Bader commissioned the architect Georges Chedanne and his pupil Ferdinand Chanut to design the store at the Haussmann location, where a glass and steel dome and Art Nouveau staircases were finished in 1912.

TMG Travel: My Day as a Tourist + Hyatt Paris Madeleine…

I have been to Paris three times now, and it never gets old.  There is always something new to see that I haven’t seen before!!  The Paris Beauty Tour was about to start and I wanted to hit the ground running! We arrived in Paris on Wednesday morning after flying all night we couldn’t check into the hotel until 3pm so we HAD to go out. I was ready to go and find some beauty goodies and do some sight seeing.

Carmen and I hit up a few french pharmacies and found some Caudalie products DIRT CHEAP (Caudalie doesn’t have to be imported because it is created in France – so it is SIGNIFICANTLY less expensive.)  For instance, the travel beauty elixir is $18.00 at Sephora and around 8 – 10 Euros depending on the pharmacie because prices fluctuate (8 Euros is around 10 dollars).

So after our jaws were finished dropping – Carmen and I decided we were going to walk to the Eiffel Tower because neither of us had been before.  So off we went…and if you have never seen the Eiffel Tower up close get ready because it is MASSIVELY gorgeous.

It was a cloudy day but we didn’t care. We bought our tickets and went straight to the top – you can have a glass of champagne up there once you arrive and the view is breathtaking!!! So after our sojourn to the top (Carm is afraid of heights, but she was a TROOPER) we had some downtime at the hotel and had time to get ready for our evening at the Hyatt Paris Madeleine. We had our welcome reception here….it was a BEAUTIFUL boutique hotel right in the heart of the 8th district near the Eiffel Tower. We had a table in the back of the beautiful Cafe M. We sampled their “Wine and More” menu which consisted of several Mediterranean menu items, bread and cheeses with accompanying wines. We also learned about the beehive on top of the hotel – yes….beehive. They have a beekeeper that tends to it and they make their OWN honey that the chef uses for inspiration and in the recipes (which is very yummy). The ambiance was cozy, the food was BEYOND delicious and I am still dreaming about this chocolate cake with this glass of port…
