Smile With Confidence | Everything You Need To Prep Ya Pout This Summer*


I spend most of my time lolling like a loon; grinning like a big old cheshire cat & chortling away at my own jokes [no shame - I properly make myself rofl into the next millennium sometimes. Usually during proper inappropriate moments / situations, before yelling YOLO like it's 2016.] 

Brandnation very kindly sent me a few must-have bits recently; all perfect to use when prepping ya pout for premium laughter & confident chuckling this Summer. There's some fab brands & bits in the mix here; all perfect to use as part of your beauty regime - to help you feel your best & look hot AF all day, eeeeerday.

I think most gals have a lil bit of upper lip / facial hair, being real. If yours bothers you - or you feel it's quite dark / noticeable, Jolen is one of those tried & tested brands that've been around for years; offering the best & most convenient ways to wave TRAAAA to ya tache. There's literally sweet FA to be embarrassed about if this sounds like you. I don't think I've ever met a fellow bird who hasn't had some kind of run in with facial hair; it's just the way we are - and can be very much influenced by hormone levels.

I was kindly sent the Jolen Creme Bleach Mild Formula with Aloe Vera* by me Brandnation baes to demonstrate exactly how simple this problem is to remedy. I don't have a mad tache situation going on, but I do have this one pesky sorta whisker that tragically grows back [quite thick, dark and noticeable each month] right in the corner of my upper lip. I hate him. We'll name him Rodriguez for the purpose of this post. Why? I dunno hun rly.

It's dead cheap to pick up a box of Jolen Creme Bleach from like, Superdrug or Boots [we're talking under a fiver] & it's properly simple to use. I like this particular product as it's a special mild formula too; as my skin can be irrationally sensitive in parts and I don't want any mad reactions when bleaching ma tache [that being said - you can use this creme to lighten hair on other areas of your face / eyebrows / body... it's skills aren't just limited to ya upper lip. And I don't want reactions anywhere thanks hun.]

It's fast to use, damn effective and easy to prepare yourself, at home. Oh - and suitable for all hair types. As you can see from the image above, in each kit you get a lil mixing bowl [which is a new feature - and much appreciated], plastic card & scraper device to mix, spread and remove your bleachin' fun with profesh looking results. Smell ya later, Rodriguez.

Directions for use:

1 Wash area to be bleached with soap and cold water and pat dry.
2 Using the spatula, fill the mixing cup with creme to the line indicated.
3 Measure one accelerator capful of powder and add it to the mixing cup.
4 With the spatula, mix the ingredients together well so that the powder is thoroughly blended with the crème.
5 Apply mixture with spatula to the area to be bleached, covering hair completely. Wait 8 minutes and remove with spatula. If hair is not completely bleached, reapply the mixture for another 5 to 10 minutes.

Wash area with cold water. Et voila!

Another common worry when it comes to pyar beaming like a Cheshire Cat who got the cream and / or Dreamies [cos let's be real, those things are like cat crack] - for me, and no doubt many others, is the colour of me gnashers. I have quite naturally white teeth, but I can't help wishing they were whiter & more American looking. Home teeth whitening strips are a safe & quick way for me to restore my smile confidence when flashing my pearly whites at that hot boy who works in the office.

I hadn't tried this brand before, but these Billion Dollar Smile Whitening Strips* are fab - easy to use, effective & instantly give you a hit of whiteness / confidence boost. As a huge coffee guzzler / enthusiast / addict the whiteness doesn't always last that long; but I love applying these before nights out, days where I know that hotty will be in the office or before important meetings where I'm trying to get awkward clients onboard.

Finally, the most enjoyable part of "Operation Summer Smile: knock 'em dead [not literally; maybe at most a bit stunned by your absolute fitness]" for me is lippy! These fun flavoured lip balms are perfect to slick on to hydrate your lips throughout the day to keep them kissably soft; in case said office saucepot decides he wants to neck on with you in the kitchen - and to use to prep ya pout pre-lippy application. On that note: how abso stunning are these new Sleek Lip Shot Glossespls?! Those nudes 😍 I can't think of a better way to finish the look & pop the icing on the proverbial cake re: Summer lip prep.
