Rembrandt recently gave me the opportunity to review some of their products, as well as graciously giving me their new 2hr whitening kit to giveaway to one of my lucky readers.
I decided to try the Form Fit Whitening Strips ($24.99), as they only needed to be on for 30 minutes a day, for 5-7 days, which totally fits in to my (and the kids') busy schedule. This kit contains two strips per day, one for the upper teeth, and one for the lower teeth. You simply rinse your mouth with water, stick on the strips, and wait for 30 minutes before removing. In five days, your teeth are visibly whiter but for even more, there are enough strips for 7 days. I used them for all 7 days, and noticed that my teeth were significantly whiter. Using a teeth whitening chart from a friend of mine, after 7 days, my teeth were 3 shades lighter. This was not noticeably whiter in the "Extreme Makeover" sense, but it was enough that friends and family were making comments such as "how well I looked", and "you look great, have you had a hair cut?". My sister-in-law, who is particularly observant when it comes to appearances, noticed straight away, saying "when did you get time to get your teeth whitened?!".
There are only two draw backs:
- you need fairly straight teeth for it to work well. My top teeth are perfectly straight and the strips went on easily and stayed on. My bottom two middle teeth are quite crooked, and the strips had trouble staying stuck on.
- they only cover the front teeth (to your canine teeth). I have a wide smile, so I would have liked them better if they covered one more tooth.
- so easy - 1 minute to apply, 30 minutes of wearing, 1 minute to remove, all at home
- very comfortable to wear
- no yucky taste - they are supposedly mint flavoured, but really, they tasted of nothing while on, and just a faint mint taste once removed
- visible whitening in 5-7 days
I will definitely use these again, in 6 months time as Rembrandt recommends.
And now for the fun part - the giveaway! I am giving one lucky reader Rembrandt's new 2 hour whitening kit that whitens, as the name suggests, in just 2 hours. How perfect would that be for the school reunion, or the last minute dinner invitation?
