3 Breath Fresheners to Save Your Holiday Small Talk

Your party dress is dry-cleaned, and your updo is figured out (thanks, YouTube). Up next is your smile. Allure has rounded up its favorite teeth-whitening and breath-freshening buys to put on your brightest smile this holiday season.

Nothing kills your confidence like having a piece of lettuce stuck between your teeth for an entire conversation and not knowing it until somebody points it out. Or when your mother oh-so-politely passes you a mint after you've eaten a slice of garlic bread. Or when a glass of red wine leaves your whole mouth rusty and stale. In this world of fresh-breath saboteurs and tooth decayers, here are three chic and discreet ways to freshen and brighten up. Go ahead, smile.

GoSmile Touch Up Ampoules ($35 for 30). These tiny single-shot tubes are no bigger than your pinky. When you're ready for a mini mouth makeover, simply bend the ampoule until the plastic casing cracks open to release whitening formula onto the foamlike tip. The results are impressive: Surface stains disappear and breath is fresher within seconds. Of the three flavors, we like Fresh Mint best.

Glo Everyday Glo ($25). Like a Tide to Go stick for your teeth, this stain-remover pen contains a clear gel with hydrogen peroxide and whitening silicates that help whiten teeth and break up stains before they settle into enamel. It has a flexible rubber tip that won't aggravate gums while you scrub, and the flavor has a hint of mint, so your mouth feels fresh. All that without smudging your lipstick!

Kissing Elixir ($10). It looks more like a lip gloss than a classic breath spray. This breath mist is 100 percent natural and formulated with peppermint leaf, vanilla, spearmint, cinnamon, and chorophyll. A single spritz is all you need, and the packaging is so elegant and unassuming, there's no need to excuse yourself from the table when it's time to refresh.
