GoSMILE 5 Senses Toothpaste Kit

I’m really anal about brushing my teeth.

I mean super anal.

I mean so anal that I am doing it three or four times a day.

I think when I was young my mum had somehow instilled in me the virtues of clean, sparkling teeth and it’s stuck with me every since.

Thanks mum!

In all seriousness I do have a thing for brushing my teeth quite a bit and the irony of it is I hate actually smiling with my teeth! I normally keep my mouth close lipped whenever I smile!

But that doesn’t prevent me from wanting a Hollywood sparkling white smile that might have Colgate knocking on my door asking might I appear in their next TV commercial….

Sorry…I lost track of the conversation for a second there.

Onward….

Your teeth.

Allow the Muse to introduce you to a very cute set of toothpastes for quite a cute little price! $20 bucks ($25 if you nab it after the Friends and Family Discount! Wow I should get paid for pimping Sephora so much lately!) gets you 5 mini tubes of GoSMILE toothpaste and a cute little travel toothbrush!

I have this set, my sister stuck in my stocking last year as a bit of a joke (see even my family knows how anal I am about brushing my teeth!) and I must say it’s a darn cute set and makes a great gift for people like me in your life icon wink

The set includes toothpastes in Mango Paradise Smile, Aloha Tropical Smile, Lemonade Smile, Ginger Cookie Smile, and Peppermint Candy Smile!

The Muse got one for her dentist last year and her dentist was quite tickled over it to say the least!

The moral of the story is that you don’t have to always have minty fresh breath! Why not have Ginger Cookie scented breath or Lemonade scented breath!!!!!!!

I like a little variety and the little things really get me happy thus this kit most definately gets a smile (a sparkling one) from your Muse!

The Weekend Beauty Steals and Deals

I haven’t had much time to do the research for this week’s Steals and Deals section! I’m so sorry about that!

Here’s the short version of this week’s Steals and Deals icon wink

The good news is Sephora’s Friends and Family Discount is ongoing until the 21st as confirmed by the gorgeous Erika at Makeup Bag!

Yay!

Stila also has a little sale ongoing this week which gives you a number of interesting discounts depending on the dollar amount spent! Click here for details!

And finally it’s worth a mention that Sephora has a NARS lip palette on sale for $30 and with the 20% off from the Friends and Family Sale you can nab it for $25! Good deal in the Muse’s opinion! The palette is originally $55 and would quite make a perfect little gift or stocking stuff at the reduced price!

The bad news is this week’s section is a bit small but the good news is it does contain some great buys!

Happy Weekend!
