Who doesn’t love a Hollywood smile? Teeth whitening is definitely growing in the UK especially when you see those beautiful shiny teeth of all the influencers and the younger people, so I’ve written about this before and while there are toothpastes available and strips, I think the best way to go and get a white a smile is to actually go to your dentist. Of course, this doesn’t come cheap.
Well, you can have a zoom whitening or get some trays made and whiten at home with a gel, but for the latter, you’re looking at around £300. Obviously, you can look around for offers and sometimes they’ll be 100 quid off, but that’s the price that I’ve been quoted. So what are we bargain hunters to do? Years ago I got some trays …
A few years back, I started noticing that my teeth were going a bit yellow. Now my teeth are naturally straight so I was happy about how they looked, but the yellowing was bugging me, so I checked out how to make them look better and this is what I found:
The “natural” and cheapest approach
I saw a really fascinating teeth whitening video recently on YouTube, where a young lady used bicarbonate soda and lemon juice and brushed her teeth with that once a week for lovely white teeth. Now that should come in at around 50 p or less a week, which feels like a real bargain.
The dentist option
I turned to my dentist and he offered me laser or molds and gels. I took the cheaper option, so he made me …
Now is the time to get those presents bought as there are not too many shopping days left Christmas day. Here is a round-up of my favourite bargain Christmas gift ideas – most in at less than £20 each, though a few in at more are very good buys IMHO.
They are in no particular order as I figure that most of us have a few different people to buy for. Remember if you buy online, you’ll probably have to pay postage and packaging :-(, but always use a cashback site if you can. If you have any to add, please put them in the comments.

I get annoyed when people, especially in posh shops judge me by my appearance. Once the assistant knows that I am not there to window shop, their attitude changes.
I have enough friends and I know that judging on appearances is wrong, so I should walk out, but in the end, snooty shop assistants are there to serve me, whether they like the look of me or not. In the short term, snooty shop assistants will always exist, so sometimes, when I can be bothered, I have learnt some basics to get better treatment (which includes getting free make up and beauty product samples;-)) anywhere.
1. Get a good haircut – basically looking well groomed is one key to looking like you have more than you really do. Go your local beauty school to get …
A recent trip to Superdrug opened my eyes to their own range of products. I must admit when it comes to shampoos and other toiletries, I am a bit of a known brand rather than an own brand fan.
But the funny thing is that a lot of own brand products offer the same features for less. As you may know, I don’t like writing about deals too often as once they are gone. You poor pumpkins remain annoyed that you missed the offer.
So here’s a little round up of some of Superdrug’s lovely products that are low priced or regularly on offer:
If you’re looking to save some money on expensive beauty products, then you will be surprised to know that you can make your own DIY products from items in your cupboards at home, and for a fraction of the price you’d pay in the shops. Take a look at the following tips for inspiration.
1. Homemade body scrub
Mix 1 cup of sugar (not salt as this will burn the skin) with 2tbsp of olive oil of grape seed oil and mix together in a bowl. Apply to the skin in circular motions for the best affect!
2. Smooth legs
Use conditioner or baby oil instead of soap or shaving cream on your legs for an extra smooth affect.
3. Homemade Face Wash
Mix 2 teaspoons of baby wash, 2 tablespoons water, 2 tablespoons glycerine …
