Always wanted to whiten your teeth but can’t find the time or have super sensitive teeth? This whitening kit solves both of those problems. Five minutes in the morning and five minutes in the evening will lead to pearly whites. The blue light accelerates the whitening gel and it easily plugs into your phone. In just 10 days you’ll have a noticeably brighter smile and it’ll take no extra time out of your day–you can do it while you get ready for work or for bed.

Sometimes self-care is as simple as a reminder of your self-worth. We adore these bracelets for both their style and substance. Choose the statement that speaks to you–we love “Be You”–and rock that bracelet until you feel like someone else needs it more than you. The brand is all about women supporting women and kindness. You can even register your bracelet online to track how it gets shared by women across the world.
