On the subject of teeth, people seem to be forever looking for ways to get whiter teeth at home. Surgery treatments for this can often be costly and time consuming, so finding the perfect ways to do this at home, is essential. First is the Iwhite instant whitening sets. This is a professional teeth whitening set which removes stains, provides instant whitening and strengthens teeth all at the same time. Perfect. Next we have the Pro Light teeth whitening system. This is a truly amazing product to have at home, its simple to use, so no messy strips. It doesn’t harm the enamel on the teeth and provides real long lasting results. The stretch marksPro Light is designed by dentists and can produce real results in just 30 minutes. an incredible system to have at home.

Remescar is a great stocking filler for people looking to reduce the appearance of stretch marks.  I know myself after having the girls, the scars on my stomach are there for a reason, however sometimes I would like something to help reduce them, make them less angry in a sense. This wonderful cream from Remescar does what it says on the tube. It really does help reduce the appearance of stretch marks, it has been really refreshing to use a product that works and so quickly too.

Another great product is Jojoba oil. This oil is fantastic for nourishing and moisturising skin, hair and nails. Something which is always welcome in the cold weather. I tend to dye my hair a lot, and the 100% natural Australian Jojoba oil has helped bring it back to life. A great little stocking filler.


Looking for something different or something that someone may not have. The beauty and care products from Creightons are made with high quality, they have a group for brands and companies such as the Real Shaving Company which are premium male grooming products inspired by traditional Barbershop and skin care using some new ideas or Perfect hair for that look and fresh feeling like you just stepped out the salon, their Keratin Pro 2 minute super smooth hair treatment, reduces frizz adds shine. There is a large range available for all your hair needs.

There is anything to care for your feet to you clean yourself in the shower and even instant tanning products all made with care quality products and with their uses in mind. The products smell nice and make you feel pampered. These would make a great stocking filler or products to add to a hamper or just for yourself any time of year.cold

Another bit of must have-ness here. Stocking were created for the useful gifts, this was the best advice I ever gave Ben, it meant everything he popped into my stocking was useful and needed. Apart from the nipple daisies. Those were not. Anyway with cold and flu season well under way, protection against colds and cold sores are a must, especially in this house. With Ben working in care, keeping his hands clean on the go is essential, so the hand sanitizer is perfect for just that. Its easy to use and fits perfectly in his pocket.
