Pre-holiday beauty routines are a must and teeth whitening is a popular process close to Christmas.
Why not treat yourself to a nice bright and white smile!
REMBRANDT has a line of teeth whitening products that will make you want to show off your pearly whites. I was given some whitening kits and toothpastes to try. The REMBRANDT Plus Peroxide Fresh Mint toothpaste is formulated with rapid-release peroxide that starts working upon contact with your teeth. I liked the mint taste to this toothpaste which was subtle, yet refreshing. The REMBRANDT Intense Stain toothpaste is also mint flavored and is infused with fluoride to provide cavity protection while removing stains and restoring enamel. The mint flavor on this toothpaste was a little bolder than the other and left my mouth feeling really clean and fresh. I found the toothpastes helps keep my teeth white following one of the whitening treatments I used. The tube was great as there was a screw on cap and the plastic held its form even toward the end of the toothpaste so there was no spillage and my cupboard did not end up being coated in toothpaste which is what typically happens! The toothpastes retail for about $7.99.
Form-Fit Whitening Strips. The kit included upper and lower strips that needed applied once a day for 5 days. The strips adhere and mold to the shape of your teeth so you do not have to worry about them slipping. They needed to be applied for 20-30 minutes. I have used teeth whitening products before and I will say that I would definitely use this product again. Other kits caused me to have teeth sensitivity for a couple of weeks following the treatment but I had no problem with the REMBRANDT kit. I started to notice an improvement after only 2 days and after the treatments were complete, I had a nice bright smile. They really did stay in place as promised.
My husband agreed to try the REMBRANDT 2 Hour Whitening Kit. The process involves applying whitening formula to your teeth using what looks like a mouth guard 20 minutes at a time, followed by a 10 minute break four times over a two hour time period. This is a great kit for someone who needs to whiten quickly! My husband liked that it could all be completed in two hours and he used it today as a way to prepare for his brother's wedding which is tomorrow. I could definitely notice a change in the whiteness of his teeth. He, however, was not fond of the taste. He said it tasted like pepper and the taste was stronger each time he applied the products. This product retails for $24.99.
No teeth whitening review would be complete without toothbrushes! I was sent two REACH by Design brushes. Curated by interior designers Tom Delavan and Celerie Kemble and celebrity stylist Brad Goreski, the new REACH by Design collection adds a splash of style to your brushing routine while also offering the same performance you’ve come to expect from REACH. These brushes were really cute and they worked great. The thick bristles were very soft on my teeth/gums. The design allowed me to easily clean even the hard to reach places in the back of my mouth. They retail for $3.99-$4.99 a piece.
