Whether it's a laser or a lip gloss, it seems like you can buy any beauty treatment off a shelf these days. While the DIY optionsArticle Pictures are convenient and budget-friendly, there are some beauty rituals that are better left to the pros. Below, we've weighed the convenience, expense, longevity and safety of the top beauty treatments to determine when to get gorgeous at home and when to make the investment in seeing a professional.

FACIALDo It YourselfAt-home facials can be just as therapeutic as most spa treatments with the right mask and environment. On a budget? Use common ingredients right in your own home, like lemon, sugar, honey, avocado and cucumbers. Pinterest features many DIY facial recipes tailored to all skin types. So improvise your own spa and create the full experience right at home by lighting a few candles and playing some relaxing music. (www.Pinterest.com)

WAXING: Professional. At-home waxing is one treatment we definitely recommend leaving to the professionals! DIY waxing tends to leave unwanted stray hairs, and commonly causes burns and ingrown hairs. (Most waxers don't even wax their own bodies, instead they let a co-worker wax them!) Turn to the pro's at Uni K Wax Centers for this beauty treatment as they go extensive training, have their own unique proprietary all-natural elastic wax and provide the cleanest, fastest, painless waxing experience in the field.

TEETH WHITENING: Do It Yourself. At-home toothpastes, strips, gels and trays can get teeth almost as white as a professional treatment. Try an over-the-counter whitener like Supersmile Ultimate Whitening System, as it's the most impressive at-home whitening kit to-date that combines the best selling Professional Whitening System. ($58, www.supersmilestore.com)

SUNLESS TANNING: Professional. Because the streaks you notice the day after while sporting your new sun dress can be quite embarrassing. Visiting a professional is essential to obtaining absolute even color, not to mention it will last longer than one applied at home! Professionals can even add definition to your abs or arms by darkening certain areas, if desired. We recommend scheduling your appointment at least 24 hours in advance, to allow ample time for the spray to dry before showering and to avoid rubbing off on your clothes.

We all want whiter teeth. With the amount of coffee, wine, tea and other staining foods/drinks, we are left with daily stains on our teeth, which build up to deeper stains over time. In attempt to fight these stains we turn to whitening products: whitening strips, whitening mouthwash, whitening toothpaste, whitening pens, etc. But what makes us choose one whitening product over another? We all want fast results, and we want it to be easy. 

I try to use a whitening toothpaste to fight those daily stains, and sometimes I turn to whitening strips if I really need a whitening boost. But for the time in between those two (or if you're not a fan of either), Colgate is introducing the Colgate Optic White Toothbrush + Whitening Pen. Hitting stores this month, this Colgate duo has a built-in whitening pen housed at the bottom of your toothbrush. Simply brush your teeth with the Colgate toothbrush (which I found to be a very nice toothbrush) and when you're done brushing, remove the whitening pen and apply to your teeth. You do not need to wait a certain amount of time, or rinse. Just apply, wipe the top of the pen to rid extra product, store the pen back in your toothbrush, and go! It's really easy and convenient to have it in one product, so you really can't use the excuse "I forgot." No waiting, no rinsing, just "Brush. Whiten. Go." 

I really did see a difference with using the whitening pen. It whitened without causing any tooth pain, and the gel adhered and dissolved well without staying on too long. Colgate Optic White Toothbrush + Whitening Pen claims you'll see whiter teeth in 2 days. So what did I see? Well there certainly was improvement in the short use of 2 days, but it's not a startling difference. However, with continued use it can only get better! I like to use the whitening pen before bed, but for best results you should use 2 times daily and then use gel as needed. It is also recommended to start using a new Optic White Toothbrush + Whitening Pen every three months. But to sum it up, good toothbrush, good whitening pen: a product that works and will fit flawlessly into your beauty routine!
