Have you ever (like myself) found that PERFECT red lip, you know the one that is not too deep, not too bright, suits your complexion b-e-a-uuuutifully and makes you feel like a million dollars? Only to feel completely let down when you smile and your not-so pearly whites are on show for all to see and you toss that lippy back in the drawer NEVER to be shown the bright lights of the dancefloor! Sound familiar?
I will hold my hands up, as an ex-smoker and a heavy tea and coffee drinker, I have tried more than a few teeth whitening products in my time. I have tried gels, mouthwashes, pens, liquid pouches… you name it I gave it a go and ended up disappointed with the results each time.
When the Polished products dropped in the salon, I literally jumped on them and took them home with me in a little bag of hope and optimism. BOY was I impressed!
The Teeth Whitening Powder is so easy to use and can replace your normal toothpaste morning and night, as it is peroxide free, enamel safe and contains no harmful abrasives. Simply dip your damp toothbrush into the powder and brush away for 2 mins as normal. The powder will become quite foamy and has a mild menthol taste, leaving your breath fresh and your teeth clean.
The Teeth Whitening Strips were VERY impressive. As a self-confessed fidgeter and picker, I was concerned how I would fare with the strips on my teeth for 30mins; but I was determined to keep them on for the whole 60 mins. There are two strips in a pack, one for your top set and one for your bottom set clearly marked out on the packaging (to avoid confusion!). Slowly apply the strip over the front of your teeth, fold over and hold down until you feel they are secure and won’t move without intention. Depending on the results you desire and the severity of the discolouration, you can leave them on for only 30 mins or for as long as 60 mins.
I managed 60 mins without any inconvenience whatsoever; although the first use I did keep checking the mirror to see could I see the strips and in honesty after a bit of practice I was able to apply them without them being obvious to the naked eye.
Basically you can use the powder in place of your normal toothpaste, or you can alternate between the two throughout the week if you still want to, and the strips can be used once a day for 30-60 mins. Once your 14 days of using the strips is over you can pare back and use them 3-4 times a week instead to maintain your results. It’s really that simple. I personally think that’s why it’s been so easy to use these 2 products, that have now found their way onto my
“I wish I had found this before my wedding day” list!
