I just got a chance to try out a really cool new product! I am a part of the Influenster community, and get to try out all kinds of cool things in exchange for a review.
I’ve tried tooth whitening products before. Before my wedding, I tried a brush-on gel. It was difficult to apply because the gel would foam and make a mess. The foam would often trigger my gag reflex, and that was not pleasant. Once applied, you had to put a mouth guard over top of the gel for twenty minutes so the gel could set. During that time you couldn’t eat or drink. It was a pain. I gave up on it before I could reach the ten day mark for guaranteed results.
More recently, I was given a chance to try Crest White Strips. They worked well and did whiten, but it was hard to remember to use them daily for 20 minutes. With them, I also could not eat or drink, and I didn’t ever want to wear them out in public.
Last week, I tried out the Colgate Optic White toothbrush and whitening pen. I was a little skeptical when I saw on the box that whiter teeth were guaranteed in just two days, but I figured it was worth a try.
Basically, this product is a specially formulated toothbrush that has bristles that help polish your teeth. But that isn’t all. In addition to the toothbrush, you also receive a whitening pen. The whitening pen includes a gel that you just brush on and go. No waiting, no mess, and no embarrassing looks.
I loved this product! It was easy to add into my normal tooth brushing routine, and since the gel adheres instantly without any messiness or funny plastic, you don’t have to wait before heading out the door. I did notice a difference in just two days. I’m not sure if you can see it in the pictures below, but I could definitely see it in the mirror, and as I continued to use the product, I have seen continued whitening.
The Colgate Optic White system costs about $12 and is safe for daily use. Check it out for yourself here.
