Man Behind the Mirror : Teeth Whitening Kit : Review

GIFTED


The guys over at Man Behind the Mirror sent me their teeth whitening kit to try.

I have looked at teeth whitening kits in the past, but never got around to try one….not sure why as it was something that I really wanted to get to brighten my teeth.

I brush regularly and use mouthwash, but still they are never as bright as I would really like them.

This year I also started to reduce my intake of coffee and fizzy drinks like coke, one to try and improve my health and two to help reduce staining my teeth.

ABOUT them

Our at-home Teeth Whitening Kit is designed to visibly whiten your teeth in just 10 minutes, with a proven gel formulation that ensures zero sensitivity.

From £49.95

A SIMPLE 3-STEP WHITENING PROCESS

The Kit

The kit comes in a very nice box which looks really good before you even open it.

On opening its been designed to have two compartments, the top for the gel and the bottom for the device. I found this very cool, and found it very professional.

Getting started

The instruction guide is mega easy to follow, and I had no issues putting it all together and starting with the whitening process.

The two things that you should try and remember is

  1. Brush before using the kit
  2. Avoid dark coloured drinks like red wine, coffee, tea etc..

How I got on

I tried using the daily, but once or twice things got in the way and I forgot but for the most part it was daily use.

Here is a before and after of my teeth.

Not the most Instragramable photo but it does show the difference, and as you can see it did lighten them. Sorry for the lighter and darker pic, it took me a few times to get a clear photo that close.

Its a great product, as I even used this while I was deciding what to watch on Netflix a few times…its so simple to use.

Product Overall :

Note : Just because this was gifted, that has not influenced my thoughts in any way. The above is a 100% honest review of the kit.

Firstly a big thanks to the guys at Man Behind The Mirror for the kit.

As you have read I had no issues with the kit, easy to use and setup and it did whiten my teeth which you can see from the before and after pic.

As you saw they are lighter, I think I would need a few more months use to get them to the shade I want but it did work! they did make them go a little lighter which is great 🙂

I have no issues recommending this product and for the price its definitely worth it.

Highkind Cannabis Company Vape Pen Kit: Review

GIFTED


The guys over at Highkind Cannabis Company (@highkindcannabisco ) sent me a vape pen kit to try.⠀

They sent me the : CBD VAPE PEN KIT – LIMITED EDITION – CINDY CHEESE £49.99 ⠀

I don’t smoke, or vape but I always make sure I test anything I get sent so I decided to use this daily for a good week or two and see what it was like.⠀

I had heard that this helps relax you, which right now in my life I could do with due to a few things that have recently happened to me and caused me to have anxiety….so did it work?

The Kit

This is what the pen kit consists of, and its super easy to assemble.

This only took about one min to put together, and then I decided I would play safe and put it on charge for a little before trying it.

Trying it

As I said at the start I don’t smoke, or vape…I have tried smoking and tried a vape ages ago but its not something I do daily it was more just to try…so what did I think about this.

I decided I would try this daily for at least two weeks, one to see what it was like and two to see if it helped relax me as I needed some relaxing due to a few things in my life right now.

The first few times I was a little 50/50 with the flavour of the vape I liked it but wasnt sure about it, but I continued with it and used it daily throughout the day.

I took the pen to work, car journeys and used it while sitting at home watching Netflix.

After maybe a day or two’s use, I did feel relaxed after using it and I was getting used to the flavour.

Overall :

Note : Just because this was gifted, that has not influenced my thoughts in any way. The above is a 100% honest review of the Vape Kit.

Firstly a big thanks to HighKind for the vape pen kit.

For the last while now I have been using this daily, I have had zero issues with it and have felt relaxed after the first few days use.

I have now finish this one, and will get another flavour and see how I find that.

I have no issues recommending HighKind, the service, communication and the Vape Pen kit are all very good.

Wow this was a big box, and I loved how careful it was all wrapped.

Look at all the goodies.

The Goodies

NOTE : Costs shown in this blog may vary depending on the supermarket/store

Hartley’s Jelly Pots
Delicious pots of wobbly jelly, guaranteed to put a smile on your face.

£0.55 for a single pot, £1.65 for 3 pots

I have not had jelly for many years, and always remember when I was a kid I used to have loads.

These sounded very nice, and I couldnt wait to open and dig right in to the wibbly wobbly jelly.

WOW these are amazing!! The flavour was perfect, and not just there like other jellys.

It was really good and so light I had to finish two pots.

  • Overall : 5/5

McVitie’s V.I.Bs
Mcvitie’s new Very Important Biscuits. Combination of golden biscuit, topped with a layer of chewy caramel and coating of the iconic milk chocolate.

£1.79

These look just like the classic Mcvities we all know and love, with the lovely chocolate top layer. The one that we eat as is, or dunk in to our favourite hot drink.

I decided to eat it as is at first to taste how it was, as this one is the V.I.Bs Caramel Bliss flavour.

I bit into this and instantly had that familiar taste but then the soft chewy caramel hit me. These are mega moreish dry or dunked, and I could have easily had the whole packet…but I decided to be a good boy and save some.

  • Overall : 5/5

Peters Yard Original Sourdough Crispbread
Award winning crispbread made with natural ingredients including their signature sourdough starter.

This was a new product for me, I have never really seen this or heard of this but that’s the fun part here as I love finding new things.

This packet is great to have in your pocket for a quick wee snack, or to have with cheese or a spread.

I decided to take this just as is, as that way I could taste exactly as it is.

These are lovely and thin, nice and crispy and had a really nice taste. I then tried with some butter, then some cheese and all worked really well with these.

I would get these again, as I was very surprised and enjoyed them.

  • Overall : 5/5

EMILY Veg Thins

I started with the Chipotle BBQ packet, as it sounded very interesting.

These had a really nice flavour to them, and one that I wouldnt want to dip as it would spoil it…but thats a personal preference.

These were so light, full of flavour I finished the packet in one sitting. I didnt feel full, so these would be a perfect mid day snack to fight those hunger pangs.

Next on to the Sea Salt packet.

These were very nice, a good amount of salt to give it some flavour and again very moreish.

Just like the other packet, these were very light and easy to eat and again would be a perfect mid day snack.

  • Overall : 5/5

Amy’s Kitchen Organic Vegetable Barley Soup
Classic comforting flavours.

£1.89

I am not really a soup person, I will take it if its put down to me but its not the first thing I would order when I go out for a meal unless there wasnt anything else I fancied.

This was actually ok, it had a nice flavour and very filling and doesn’t have many calories which is good if your someone who is calorie counting.

If I spotted this and I did fancy soup, it is something I would try again.

  • Overall : 4/5

Naked Five Minute Noodles – Japanese Chicken Yakisoba
A delicious range of asian stir fry noodles.

£1

I decided to try these just as they are, rather than add anything else to the mix so I got a true flavour.

These were very easy to prepare, and very fast to prepare which is great if you want a quick meal.

With my first bit I could taste the flavour, and it had a very very slight kick which added to the really nice flavour. For me I wish I did add something else to the mix, but to be honest I was very impressed with this and it was fine to eat it as is.

RHYTHM108 Sweet ‘N’ Salty Almond Bar
Made with smooth almond butter

£1.49

Unfortunately almonds is one of the nuts I am allergic to, so I had to get help to review this item.

Made with smooth almond butter⠀

This is what they said “These bars are amazing! The perfect combination of sweet and salty, and so addictive. They have a really great chocolate flavour, and could have easily had another “⠀

  • Overall : 5/5

Thatchers Cloud Lemon
Perfect balance of sharp notes from lemons and sweetness from specially selected apples.

£5.50 per 4-pack

I have recently started to try more ciders, and have enjoyed them as a change to beers or wine.

I have never tried a lemon cider, so this was going to be interesting for me.

This was a very interesting cider for me, it had a nice flavour and a nice aftertaste but it just didnt hit the spot for me as I prefer the other flavours of cider.

Dont get me wrong, it was very nice and refreshing but for me I think I need more than just lemon.

  • Overall : 4

Nakd Drizzled Chocolish Bars Multipack
Perfect for a chocolate lover looking for a healthier alternative

£3.00

Due to this containing a type of nut I am allergic to, again I needed to get some help in reviewing this item.

This is what they said “This is a great wee treat to have daily, and know that it’s not going to add too many calories on to your daily amount. They have a great flavour and very moreish”⠀

  • Overall : 5/5

Whitworths Chocolate Biscuit & Hazelnut Treat Mix
A new snack that you can feel good eating.

£2.00

Unfortunately I cant do Hazelnuts, as its one of the nuts I am allergic to so I had to get help to review this one.

“The combination of the biscuit, hazelnut and fruit was a perfect mouthful and very addictive”

  • Overall : 5/5

Lucozade Revive
New from Lucozade, Revive is a naturally inspired uplift.

£1.49

I have tried nearly all of Lucozades drink in the past, and enjoyed all the new flavours so I was excited to see how this was compared to what I had in the past.

Firstly the labelling was very nice, I liked how I could see the colour of the drink and it wasn’t too in your face.

I decided to take this to work, and drink it there.

This was a very refreshing drink, and one that I was very surprised at how much I enjoyed it.

The lemon and lime flavour was not overpowering, it was just the perfect balance and left me wanting more.

  • Overall : 5/5

FULFIL Chocolate Hazelnut Whip Bar
A smooth chocolate hazelnut whip

£2.00

Due to this containing a type of nut I am allergic to, again I needed to get some help in reviewing this item.

This is what they said “These are delicious. They have a crumbly cookie texture, and an incredible flavour.”⠀

  • Overall : 5/5

St Lawrence Gold Pure Canadian Maple Syrup
A delicious tasting maple syrup

£1.00

Now who doesnt love pancakes and syrup? these were a fav when I was a child and still is….I am a big kid 🙂

I got the two wee bottles and couldnt wait to pour them over a pancake and dig in.

To start with I poured a little over one pancake, and took a taste to see how it was.

This was really nice, a perfect amount of sweetness that made the perfect bite.

Firstly this is a great idea, you get a box every month with surprise products. This for me was very cool, as I got to try some products that I might never have thought to try.

If you like what you saw and read, check them out even for one box….you never know you may keep it going and get a box a month 🙂
