Teeth whitening is something that has always interested me and have tried various different products which haven’t worked for me. I know there are some that definitely work but these tend to contain hydrogen peroxide and essentially bleach your teeth. Over the last few weeks I have been trying out the BlanX White Shock range which aims at whitening teeth without using any ingredients that damage tooth enamel such as hydrogen peroxide.
This mouthwash is activated by light and removes bacteria as well as continuing to whiten your teeth throughout the day. This can be used with the LED bite which I’ve spoke about further down for 30 seconds to help whiten your teeth even more. It tastes minty and leaves your mouth feeling refreshed after using.
As with all of the products from this range, this is a light actives gel pen which is hydrogen peroxide free which means that is it safe and doesn’t damage tooth enamel. To use this you just remove the cap, turn the base to squeeze out the gel, then just rub onto your teeth. I’ve been leaving this on for 10-15 minutes then rinsing afterwards. It doesn’t have a nice taste as it’s quite bitter, but the taste fades after a few seconds so it doesn’t bother me. As it stated I used this twice a a day for two weeks and still have quite a bit left in the tube.
This kit consists of the LED bite and a whitening toothpaste, it claims to make your teeth up to 4 shades whiter in just two weeks. The way I used this was after brushing my teeth with the toothpaste below, I rubbed this toothpaste over the LED bite, turned it on and left it in my mouth for 1 minute everyday. I also used this for 10 minutes once a week as it stated that it would whiten teeth even quicker. This actually works on not just teeth, but also implants and fillings.
This toothpaste is non-abrasive, peroxide free and is meant to whiten your teeth throughout the day due to the ActiluX that it contains which reacts to light. Also included is an LED light accelerator which boots the whitening action, you screw it to the end of the toothpaste and it lights up as the toothpaste is squeezed out.
This is the same toothpaste as previously mentioned but this does not come with the LED light accelerator, however if you already have this you can just attach it to the end and use them together. I can’t quite describe the taste of this but I’m not that overkeen on it, however the taste is gone once you have finished brushing your teeth anyway.
I’ve been using these products for 3-4 weeks now and have definitely seen an improvement. I used all of the products together for two weeks, then just used the toothpaste and mouthwash after with the LED bite intensive treatment once a week. I’ve been pleased with the results and my teeth are whiter than they were before, please note that this will not make your teeth unnaturally white (bright white) as it doesn’t contain any abrasive ingredients. It does however make your teeth look naturally whiter and I’m going to continue to use this as I feel the longer I use it for, the more positive results will be achieved so feel free to message me if you want to know how I’m getting on. It took about 3 days to start seeing results, and after 2 weeks these were a lot more prominent and it’s continued to whiten my teeth even more. As I used these all together I’m not sure what particular products worked best, but I do know that they all worked well together. If you’re interested in trying out the range they are available at a lot of places such as Boots, Superdrug, ASDA, Sainsbury’s, Tesco and Waitrose. You can also follow BlanX on Twitter and Facebook!
