Why: Over the counter teeth whitening treatments are a godsend for those of us who want movie star smiles, but aren't banking movie star paychecks. It can be hard, though, to find the time (or, in my case, the patience) to mess with gloopy gels, fussy trays and precise, down-to-the-second timing.
That's why Listerine's Quick Dissolving Strips are so great. After a quick peel and stick, they melt away in about the time it takes to sit through a commercial break, with nothing to clean up. Plus, they're gentle enough that you can do both daily treatments back to back without worrying about burning your gums or making your chompers feel sensitive. They're thin and light, so you can chat normally while wearing them, and since they're transparent, this is one beauty regimen you can indulge in right out in the open.
Price: $24 for two weeks of twice-daily treatments
