Giveaway: Win some super power from Philips

Let’s count the ways we’ve been not so sweet to our pearly whites over the holiday season:

  • we enjoyed numerous glasses of red wine with friends
  • to jolt us awake after late-nights out at holiday parties, we downed several cups of coffee every morning
  • and with glorious time off work, we enjoyed a cup of tea or two during our cozy afternoons at home

Sound familiar? Now let’s keep the party going–Health & Swellness is giving away a basket filled with all of these teeth-staining treats!

But, not to worry–the basket also includes a Philips Sonicare FlexCare+ power toothbrush (which is worth $219.99 alone). The FlexCare+ serves up 31,000 strokes per minute, features a QuadPacer and Smartimer (so you can be sure you’re putting in some quality time on all of your teeth), a ProResults brush (better contour fit and superior bristles) and a sleek sanitizer.

Which is why it sells for $219.99. And I don’t know about you, I love healthy, white teeth and all and power brushing (once you go power brush, you can’t ever go back), but it’d hurt me to shell about that kind of money on a toothbrush.

Which is why you should enter to win it right now!

There are three ways you can enter (do all three to increase your chances!):

(1) Enter by emailing your name, address and phone number to healthandswellness@gmail.com (please put FlexCare in the subject line).

(2) Leave a comment on this post about why you should be the winner of this power brush.

(3) Tweet a link to this giveaway (be sure to include the @healthswellness handle so I see it!).

This giveaway closes 12PM January 12, 2011. Must be Canadian resident. The winner of this Philips Sonicare basket (valued at $265) will be randomly chosen and notified by email.

Whiten up

So I’m heading today to Napa, California, for a few days. It’s for work, so I haven’t set the itinerary but I think it’s safe to assume a few glasses of red wine just might be consumed (you can’t go to Napa and not enjoy some vino)…red wine that may very well stain my pearly whites.

So what better time to test out Pure Smile‘s portable teeth whitening pen ($50). I’m not completely sold on the idea of whitening on the go (I think I’d prefer to complete this task in the privacy of my own home rather than out in public so a portable pen that you can apply in 60 seconds isn’t so much of a draw for me) but I’ll give it a shot.

How to use it? You paint on the product (which is composed of 30-percent carbamide peroxide, all-natural, kosher glycerin and xylitol), leave it on for one minute and then rinse with water.

According to Vancouver-based Pure Smile, using the product twice a day for two weeks is enough to see results–check back in 14 days for my review.
