Nicene Brands Oral and Skin Care Products-Review & Giveaway!



I was recently given the opportunity to review a few products from the Nicene Brands family. I was sent the Topol Plus Toothpaste, and the Porcelana Day and Night Skin Lightening Creams. 
The Topol toothpaste helps control stains on your teeth. It seems like some of the things I like most are apt to stain my teeth. For example: coffee. Yep, good old coffee stains your teeth! And, of course, tea. And for a southerner like me, sweet tea is a necessity of life!  Topol Plus toothpaste has a unique polishing system that removes stains. But, it doesn't just help remove stains...it also has an ingredient that fights plaque-to keep stains from coming back! It also provides all the benefits of regular toothpaste, such as fluoride, plaque fighters, and a fresh minty flavor. I have used this toothpaste twice a day for the past couple weeks and I can already see a difference in my teeth. They really are a little bit whiter! I also love the mint, which gives nice, fresh breath. 


The Porcelana Skin Lightening Creams are honestly something I probably would have never purchased before. I just never thought about trying a cream to even out my skin tone, but after trying these creams, I realize how nice they make my face look! After these creams are gone (they should last a good long time, since you only use a little), I will be checking my local Wal-Mart for more! The day cream has hydroquinone to help fade discolorations and even skin tone, and antioxidants to fight environmetal damage. It also has sunscreen for extra protection during the day.  I use this every morning after showering, and the night cream every evening right before bed. It's not greasy at all, which is a big requirement for anything I put on my face. I can not stand oily or greasy products on my face, and that is not a problem at all with Porcelana! 


The night cream has extra moisturizers (including avocado oil), and vitamins to nourish and restore skin while you sleep.  I have been using these morning and evening, and was surprised at how much difference they made! My face has a much more even tone, and it looks brighter too! I am very pleased with the effects of the creams!

  1. Since everyone's skin is different - and personal preferences on products come into play - it's good to read as many unbiased reviews of skin care products as possible.
