A couple weeks ago, I decided to take the 2 Weeks to Your Whitest Smile Challenge with Crest 3D White. I’ve gone through my box of the Luxe Supreme FlexFit Whitestrips, and I’m excited to show you my final results!
I used the Whitestrips every day for 14 days, keeping them on for an hour as recommended. Since these stretch to fit anyone’s teeth, they’re comfortable to wear and grip nicely to stay put— which is important when you’re wearing them for a whole hour! There’s no real taste to them, either. After about fifteen minutes, I tend to forget they’re on except when I try to talk (they made me sound like I had a lisp). I typically wore them when I was doing homework or watching YouTube in the evenings.
These are some of Crest’s most powerful whitening strips, and are supposed to deliver results as bright as a $500 professional teeth whitening from the dentist. With that said, it took a little bit of time to get used to the hydrogen peroxide level in the formula, which is known to cause a bit of discomfort with sensitive teeth. After the first application, I experienced what can only be described as pressure on my teeth. This is completely normal, though, and went away after a couple of days. Crest has different whitening products that cater to sensitive teeth, so you can pick what’s right for you. Although, I would say that small discomfort was worth it in the end.
The proof is in the pudding, and after two weeks of wearing the Whitestrips, I can definitely see a difference in my smile. Wearing the same hot red lipstick, my teeth look about three shades whiter than they did before! I will admit I was a little skeptical, having used different whitening products in the past that left me wanting more. These actually performed and gave me a noticeably brighter smile in such a short amount of time.
Considering how expensive a professional in-office whitening can be, these are a much more affordable option to getting a whiter smile. Plus, they’re convenient and you can whiten on your own time. I’m happy with my results, and will definitely be using these to maintain my bright smile every so often. You can find the Crest 3D White Whitestrips Luxe Supreme FlexFit in drugstores, or at your local ULTA or Target.
