Smile Brilliant cariPRO Ultrasonic Electric Toothbrush Review

I received a product sample in order to complete this post. Any opinions expressed are my own.

Years ago I used a rechargeable electric toothbrush from another brand.  It worked fine but one of the reasons I stopped using it was the big recharging base took up space and the replacement toothbrush heads were ridiculously expensive.  When Smile Brilliant offered for me to try their cariPRO Ultrasonic Electric toothbrush I wanted to check out their website first.



The charging base looks small but is it really? 

When I looked at the website it looked like the charging base was quite small. We’re a family of 6, space is at a premium in our house so that was important to me.  The base actually is quite small, approximately 2 inches wide.  You don’t have to leave the base out all the time though because the charge last a long time.

How long does the charge last?

Charging is easy. You just plug the base into an outlet and set your toothbrush on the base.  The charge light will glow red while charging until fully charged when it will turn green.  If you’re in a hurry you only need to charge your brush for a few minutes to brush your teeth. When it’s fully charged however the charge lasts for up to 30 days with twice a day brushing.

What are the features of the cariPRO Ultrasonic electric toothbrush? 

The cariPRO Ultrasonic electric toothbrush has 5 different settings: clean, white, massage, gum care, and sensitive.  I have sensitive teeth but wanted to try all the settings.  I found, for me, I liked the clean setting and gum care setting the best. The sensitive setting had a “tickle” feeling to me.

The cariPRO is also waterproof so no worries if it gets wet or even if you want to brush your teeth in the shower.  Hey I’m not judging.

The brush runs for 2 minutes with a pause every 30 seconds to change areas in your mouth.

The cariPRO has smooth, almost satin-like feel making it comfortable to hold it in your hand.

60 day trial – you get to try it in your home for 60 days, if you don’t like it, ship it back and get your money back.  There is also a 2 year warranty!

The brush heads also have a tongue scraper on the back.

How much does it cost?

A valid question.  There are 3 different packages available for the cariPRO Ultrasonic electric toothbrush on the Smile Brilliant site.

  1. Individual package – this is what I got to review.  I received the cariPRO, one charging base, and 2 brush heads.  This package runs $119.  Shipping is free.
  2. Deluxe package – you get one cariPRO, one charging base and 4 brush heads. If you change your brush heads every 6 months that works out to 2 years worth of brush heads.  This package is $129 with free shipping.
  3. Couples package – this one is definitely the best deal when you compare the prices to the other packages.  You get 2 yes TWO cariPRO electric toothbrushes, 2 charging bases, and 4 brush heads.  that breaks down to each person getting a toothbrush, 2 brush heads and a charging base for only $99.50 each since the couples package is $199 with free shipping.

All packages have a 60 day trial and 2 year warranty along with free shipping

Yea but how much are the Smile Brilliant replacement electric toothbrush heads

This is where I was really impressed.

  • You can get 2 replacement toothbrush heads for $13 and free shipping.  That’s $6.50 per toothbrush head
  • A better deal, get 4 replacement toothbrush heads for $23. That breaks down to $5.75 per toothbrush heads.
  • Best deal, get 8 replacement toothbrush heads for $43 that’s $5.38 per brush head.

Why should I use an electric toothbrush over a regular toothbrush?

I asked the same question.  You can check the Smile Brilliant FAQ Here.  The short of it is, it’s 7X more effective at removing plaque than a manual toothbrush.  For me, another benefit is the fact that it runs for 2 minutes.  Admittedly, I don’t always brush my teeth for two minutes with a manual. The cariPRO electric toothbrush runs for 2 minutes so it makes it easy to do that.  The cariPRO can also help improve gum health.   In my personal opinion, I also like the feel of the cariPRO electric toothbrush on my gums. It’s sort of like a masseuse for my mouth.

This is me first thing in the morning legitimately using the toothbrush. No make up, bed head, baggy eyes and all lol

What is it missing?

This is a matter of opinion. Because it runs for 2 minutes and only gives a brief, second pause to change quadrants in the mouth, I’d like to see a couple second break after 1 minute to spit.  I know that’s gross but I have a sensitive gag reflex.  I either have to try to spit with it running in my mouth or take it out of my mouth to spit and have it splatter on the mirror.  I’ve tried to hold off until it was done running but I end up gagging lol.

HourGlass Angel Review & Coupon Link

I received a review sample at no cost in order to complete this review. Any opinions expressed are my own.

I’m a Dealspotr Influencer and I’ve founds some awesome coupons on Dealspotr including one for HourGlass Angel which I’m going to talk to you about.

Corsets and waist trainers seem to be making a big comeback.  You’re seeing celebs like Kim Kardashian and and Snooki trying it out.  You see corsets as a fashion statement or accessory from people like Nikki Minaj and Christina Aguilera.  And man, there are some stylish corsets out there.

I honestly only wanted a simple one. I wanted something that was comfortable that I could wear under a dress or shirt to help hide my belly for special occasions.   Hourglass Angel has all types of corsets and waist trainers from simple to highly fashionable.

The below pictures is me in a more form fitting shirt I own. Unfortunately you can see some of my lumps and bumps and not the ones I’d like to show off.


I put on my corset which at first I was worried I wouldn’t be able to get on.  It had a lot of hooks like bra hooks but mine had some stretch to it and once I got a few done, the rest were easy.

You can see in this pictures my belly looks more taught. The “love handles” aren’t as obvious”  I tried it on over top of shirts so you can see how this particular corset looks.

As you can see mine is plain and is not meant to be showing.  Mine allows me to move more which I need with having 4 kids and a healthcare job.  I do think it helps to enhance my bust area too.  Hourglass Angel has tons of different options, colors, and styles.  You’re sure to find what you want.

We Had a Kid K’nex Tryazon Party and a 70% OFF COUPON CODE!

I received free products thanks to Tryazon in order to host a Tryazon party.  Any opinions expressed are my own.

I had the opportunity to get in on my first ever Tryazon Party and we had so much fun! My party was for the Kid K’nex sets that are geared for ages 3 – 5.

We received an amazing party kit with several Kid K’nex sets:

Before the party started I decided to break open the 100 piece tub and try my hand and building a few things.  I was impressed with the colors, the easy of connecting the pieces, and the size for little hands.

I wanted to have a small variety of snacks and drinks for my first Tryazon party.  Unfortunately one family could not make it due to change of plans. But once everyone was there that was coming I had to get a group pictures.  I’m glad we had such a fun group!

We broke open the large tub. I showed the kids the idea page that comes with the large tub but told them, of course, they didn’t have to build something on there, they could build whatever they felt like.  It was so nice to see this bunch of kids playing so nice together and so engrossed in what they were doing without having a screen in front of them.


After they each made a creation they couldn’t wait to show it off. So we got a few fun pictures of their creations.

You can get 70% off the Kid K’nex Budding Builders set that contains 100 pieces from K’nex. Just use code: TRYAZONKK and go here:



ERA Organics Mens Products Review and a Giveaway

I received a sample of the product in order to complete an honest review. Any opinions expressed are my own.

ERA Organics offers healthy, organic skincare solutions for you.  In this post I’m highlighting the men’s ERA Organics line.

My husband received the USDA Organic Men’s face and body wash.  It’s good for many different skin types.  My husband is choosy about some of the products he uses. Not so much looking at ingredients (I do that part) but he wants it to work a certain way, feel a certain way, and smell a certain way.

He’s been using this cleanser for several days now and says it’s definitely something he will continue using. He liked the moisturizing feeling during and after use.  I really enjoyed the scent.  For me it smelled like a spicy orange creamsicle..if that makes any sense to you lol.  On a side note, the products matched well with my downstairs bathroom…BONUS!

ERA Organics Men’s Collection aslo has organic shaving solutions.  My husband received the Extra Nourishing & Hydrating Shaving Soap which looks and smells amazing.  It’s made for sensitive skin and contains organic ingredients such as palm oil, olive oil, ginger root, white oak bark and burdock root.  it has an amazing sage lemongrass scent and it non-toxic.

Also pictures is the ERA Organics Men’s natural moisturizing aftershave serum.  Containing the same nourishing ingredients as the shave soap.  The aftershave serum helps to reduce razor burn, ingrown hairs, and redness.

If you’d like to try these products yourself I have a 20% off coupon for you!  Use code: DINERO20 to save 20% off your order at ERA Organics.
