As the coronavirus pandemic wanes and public health restrictions lift, we are returning to our offices, traveling, and meeting face-to-face more and more every day. It’s also a time for many of us to refresh or, in some cases, restart our personal grooming routines. To help, here are five products that will have you feeling and looking good from head to toe—including those special places in-between.

Luster Premium White Pearl Teeth Whitening Kits

Luster Premium White Pearl is one of the fastest teeth whitening kits on the market— up to 7x faster than its competitors. With three easy steps, you get visibly whiter teeth in just 30 minutes and 6 shades whiter in 3 days with its patented whitening serum. By using both light and heat, Luster’s whitening light is proven more effective and quicker than other teeth whitening LED light systems. Developed by dentists, this kit includes: Pro Light, Serum, Rinse, and Pearl Infused Mint Whitening Toothpaste.


MouthWatcher Toothbrushes

Created by renowned dentist Dr. Ronald Plotka, MouthWatcher toothbrushes have flossing bristles that are each one micron, smaller than the thickness of a human hair, allowing the thin bristles to go interdentally between the teeth and break up plaque like no other brush on the market. Additionally, each polyester bristle is infused with silver to eliminate 99% of bacteria, viruses, and fungi that typically grow on your brush between uses. Within six hours of using the brush, your toothbrush is virtually germ-free and ready for your next use. And finally, since polyester is a more resilient material than traditional nylon bristles, this toothbrush will last up to 4 months – one month longer than a typical brush.
