Colgate Max White One Ice > Review


I saw heaps of ads about this product. It claims that if you brushed with it 3 times a day, you would end up with whiter teeth after 7 days. I used the product twice a day (since that's more convenient for me) for about 3 weeks.

I don't think it made my teeth any whiter. It may have a tiny bit but not significant enough for me to really notice. The weirdest thing was that it reacted with the inside of my mouth and made it peel. Yes...peeled the inside of my mouth! It wasn't painful at all, it was just weird. Like an hour after brushing my teeth I would notice...I guess you could say it was like residue on the inside of my lip, which I realised was a layer of the inside of my mouth because when I went to wipe it off, it was still attached to my mouth. It's really hard to explain. But like I said, it wasn't painful at all, so I did continue to use the toothpaste for 3 weeks before stopping.

The only good thing I can say about this toothpaste is that it leaves a very strong minty sensation (I used the "Ice" flavour) and makes your teeth feel really clean.

Definitely not a product for me.

OPI At First Sight

I finished Sem 1 exams on Tuesday (Thank goodness!), still haven't recovered from my sleep deprivation though, since I worked Wednesday-Saturday straight, I finally have some down time.  But I now have a cold...how convenient...  Anyway thought it would be a good time to write a review while I'm stuck in bed all day.


OPI At First Sight is a pale nude kind of colour with very subtly gold shimmer. It practically looks like a creme finish polish. The gold shimmer is only noticeable under direct light.

I have 2 coats on in the photos. It is a sheer polish. As you can see, you can still see the tips of my nails. But by no means is it one of those horribly sheer ones that look like you have nothing but a clear polish on. A 3rd coat would get you pretty close to an opaque finish.

I really like this colour. It looks really clean. A good alternative to pale pinks. The shimmer adds some extra subtle dimension to it and warms it up so it looks good on my yellow toned skin.
