Hello beautiful people! Your day is about to get a little bit brighter 🙂 Today’s post is about a quick, easy and affordable way to get those teeth sparkling white!
Colgate has definitely come up with an easy innovative way to whiten your teeth. Recently launched, is their Optic White toothbrush with built in Whitening pen. In conjunction with Colgate’s Optic White mouth wash, you can be on your way to a whiter smile in a little as two days!
I have been using these two products for a couple weeks now and I am loving the results! My teeth are noticeably whiter!! The great thing about these products is that they not only whiten your teeth but protect from future stains at the same time. BONUS! As well, the gel in the whitening pen adheres to your teeth quickly and you don’t need to rinse it off. You simply apply and carry on with your day with no wait time.
I love that the whitening pen is stored in the toothbrush because it reminds me every time I pick up my toothbrush to use it! Being consistent and establishing a new routine can at times be difficult, so for me, this is a great way to keep me on track.
When I first used the whitening gel, I was a bit confused as the gel seemed to ‘sit’ on my teeth. I had this mouth full of goopy gel and I’m not supposed to rinse? However, I fought the urge to rinse and within minutes, the gel was no longer traceable in my mouth.
The gel tastes like a whitening strip. If you have ever used one, then you know exactly that taste that I am talking about. It’s not great, but it’s not horrible either. Plus, the taste is gone fairly quickly once the gel is fully absorbed into the teeth.
I am not a huge fan of the taste of the whiteseal mouth wash. It is not as ‘fresh’ as you would expect a mouth wash to be, however, I am contributing this to the fact that I assume it is more for whitening purposes rather than freshening your breath. It contains 2% of hydrogen peroxide which is proven to help whiten teeth so including this into your daily routine will definitely help achieve a whiter smile faster.
The bottom line here is that these products work to whiten your teeth! It is affordable and easy to use.
How to use Colgate Optic White tooth brush and whitening pen:
- Start by brushing your teeth as you normally would
- Rinse with Colgate Optic White Whiteseal mouth wash. (Optional)
- Remove the whitening pen from the tooth brush, twist the bottom and the gel will appear out from the middle of the blue applicator. Apply the gel to your teeth using the applicator.
- Use twice a day for best results
Lipsticks formulated with a blue base will help cancel out any orange or yellow tones on your teeth.
Keeping the color wheel in mind, orange and yellow bases tend to bring out those same hues in your smile.
