Did you know.....the best tooth whitening toothpaste is: Ultra brite All In One Advanced Whitening. Consumer Reports tested 41 toothpastes, toothpastes that all boast about whitening your teeth. And they found that most brands do not live up to the hype or expensive price tags. But only one was really superior at stain removal. And this one wasn't too abrasive. And what a bargain at $1.00 for a 6 oz. tube at Walmart.
Did you know....sexy actress Eva Mendes loves a certain beauty product? St. Ives Apricot Facial Scrub. Eva Mendes says the scrub is a favorite of hers. We also love this stuff, because it's available at your local drugstore and for about $5, depending on the scrub type you choose.
Did you know....there's a simple way to clean your diamond jewelry at home? Place your diamonds into rubbing alcohol or a mixture of equal parts ammonia and cold water. Let them soak for a few minutes. Then take a brush with soft bristles, like a baby toothbrush, and gently clean your diamonds. Rinse off. And lay them on a tissue to dry.
Did you know...Nicole Richie likes a smoky eye and told one magazine she goes to these products to achieve her cat eye look: for eyeliner, M.A.C’s liquid type, and Maybelline for mascara! "I love mascara! Maybelline is great because it’s inexpensive and easy to use!" Nicole says.
Did you know...stylist Rachel Zoe cannot live without this multi-purpose skin cream called Egyptian Magic? She and a bunch of celebrities can't get enough of this stuff. "Living up to its namesake, this olive oil and honey-based cream works magic on elbows, knees and everything in between. Seriously, hold no reservations with this stuff— some of my friends and clients even swear by it as a hair mask. My advice…use it as a moisturizer to help extend your summer tan into fall ;) xoRZ" tweeted to Twitter.
Did you know...designer Giorgio Armani says that foundation and eyeliner are the 2 beauty products every woman needs to wear daily? He's got a lovely cosmetics line, for sure. Mr. Armani explains the value of a defined eye: "....a small eyeliner line. It is fundamental because it gives depth to the look and a sense of mystery---but it must not be noticeable."
Did you know...a simple jar of Aquaphor Healing Ointment ($8.99, 3.5 oz.) makes a superb nighttime eye treatment?! Yes, says celeb dermatologist Laurie Polis. Aquaphor Healing Ointment does its best work when you've retired for the night, which is actually the best time to treat your skin.
