Reduce eye redness with Lumify by Bausch + Lomb

Drop everything! Because the eye care experts at Bausch + Lomb are proud to launch an amazing new eye drop that significantly reduces redness to help eyes appear whiter, brighter and more radiant.


 Developed by eye doctors, LUMIFYTM was approved by the FDA in December of 2017. Its unique formulation has been clinically proven to significantly reduce redness in 1 minute and lasts up to 8 hours. LUMIFY is 100% free of bleach and dyes.

“Eye redness is a common, non-specific issue that brings many patients into our offices,” said Melissa Toyos, M.D., general ophthalmologist, dry eye specialist, and facial cosmetic surgeon at Toyos Clinic. “LUMIFY works differently than other redness relievers by selectively targeting redness and alleviating some of the potential side effects common to other redness relievers – rebound redness, dependency or loss of effectiveness over time. I am excited to be able to recommend LUMIFY as a new, effective option for my patients.”

Our eyes are one of the first things people notice and with today’s selfie culture, we always want our eyes to look their best. It’s no wonder many women spend so much time and effort making their eyes look beautiful – concealers, wrinkle creams, lash extensions – but all of these tips and tricks fall short when your eyes are red.

“One of the first things I do when preparing for a photo shoot is to check out the whites of my models’ eyes” said Vincent Oquendo, celebrity makeup artist and LUMIFY brand ambassador. If there is any redness, LUMIFY can help eyes appear whiter and brighter.”

Just one drop of LUMIFY starts working in 1 minute and lasts up to 8 hours, making it a great step to add to your routine when eyes are red and need a little help to let their natural beauty shine through. Once you try LUMIFY, you won’t believe your eyes!

LUMIFY will be available at major food, drug and mass retailers including Walgreens, CVS, Rite Aid, Walmart, Target and in June 2018.

At-Home Teeth Whitening: Does it Work?

*Smile Brilliant sent me a whitening kit to try for free.  This review is my honest opinion on their products!*


I’ve always dreamed of having white teeth and have tried whitening strips when I was younger. It was a struggle of keeping them on and not swallowing the slimy gel. Fast forward to my adulthood I was offered the opportunity to try Smile Brilliants at Home Teeth Whitening.

Needless to say I was skeptical but couldn’t resist the opportunity of having whiter teeth. The system arrives in two shipments. The first shipment included a mixture to cream my impressions. It was really easy to do – and my seven year old son begged to try it. Within ten minutes the templates were done! A return package was include to slip them into
the mail and ship back to Smile Brillant.

A few weeks later the actual trays arrived in the mail and fit perfectly! With that being said the next step is whitening.


The package suggest to whiten for 45 minutes to 33 hours, followed by a 20 minute desensitizing process. I was super nervous how my teeth and gums would react and to be honest the first time I put too much whitening gel on the trays and could feel everything. It actually hurt. As I continued to whiten everything seemed normal and
the sensitivity subsided. When you first apply the trays you will drool. You can either swallow or spit it out.

As I work from home I have flexibility on whitening. And can at times whiten up to three hours. This worked out perfectly for me. For others, you may need to a lot a certain amount of time each morning or evening to achieve the perfect shade of white.

It didn’t take very long to notice the brightness. With my teeth being fairly white to begin with the difference isn’t as noticeable as others. I still have a few syringes of whitening gel left over and I am excited to continue on this journey to maintain the whitening effect.

Here’s my before and after photos. It was rather challenging to obtain the same lighting in both pictures. These aren’t retouched in any way. I can definitely notice a different in the brightness of my teeth. I wasn’t expected a huge color change. The brightness has impacted me! And I love this product. I’m really impressed with the Smile Brillant system!

Popcornopolis Organic Nearly Naked Popcorn



From family movie nights to after school snacks, my little man loves munching on popcorn, and I don’t mind giving in to his popcorn obsession as it’s much better for them than greasy, potato chips, cookies, or candy as snacks.

I also happen to love popcorn, myself, for the same reason. When I’m craving a snack, I want something that isn’t loaded with calories. Popcornopolis Organic Nearly Naked Popcorn is the perfect snack for the entire family.
This lightly salted snack is only 38 calories per cup! You really can’t beat that! We love adding a little bit of Parmesan or other seasonings to it to change up the flavor, but it really doesn’t need it. It’s great by itself. Since it’s lightly salted, if you did want variety, you can add just about anything to it from skittles to pretzels and even chocolate bits. Whatever your heart desires.
Popcornopolis Organic Nearly Naked Popcorn is made fresh with the finest ingredients and absolutely no preservatives. It’s gluten free and Kosher, popped in coconut oil, all natural whole grain, which has a 9 month shelf life.
It’s our movie night go-to. We are obsessed! I admit it!
