love this!! I have bought this over and over!
UPDATE--I continue to buy this over and over. The dentist checkups have been perfect. They say I do a great job cleaning my teeth but I think it is this product that keeps them so nice. I will never part with this--it's a great find. I use a floride rinse after brushing everyday because it is not in the paste. I also love that my teeth do not hurt when I use this every day. Other whitening products are painful.
I use 5 Minute Speed Whitening Gel 2 - 3 times a week and it really works! However; I don't use it for only 5 minutes. I use the mouth trays as per the review below. And I leave this on for 30 minutes at a time. I then follow with a good brushing and use a whitening rinse for 30 seconds.
My teeth respond well to this treatment and are a LOT whiter. I can highly recommend this product when used as per above instructions.
Like most of the other reviews said this is an awesome product that is super cheap and works really well. I have been using this for 3 weeks now and here are a few pointers that work for me:
1. Go to plus whites website for coupons, I got $1 off my tube
2. Go to Wal*Mart and buy teeth guards (found in the sporting area) that have helmet attachment (gives you something to hold onto when dipping in the boiling water and they are easily removed and filed down for comfort)
3. Apply the gel with a Q Tip, use one end for application (try and avoid the gums) and the other for clean up when mouth piece is put into place
4. Use in the shower or with a cup handy for drool :-p
5. I found that it also works best if you use a whitening pre brush rinse (I use a Wal*Mart brand one) and brush your teeth prior to application
Hope these little tips help!!
this is my favourite whitening product...
i used many many of them including the white strips and all and it was just uncomfortable for me .
i bought a mouth tray and use this pretty often.
thanks to it i get numerous compliments on my bright smile.
:)i love this product.it's cheap and lasts long.
I love this product! It made a huge difference to my teeth after only 5 mins, I only use it twice a month and my teeth are perfectly white, I do feel however that using this gel twice a day for the first two weeks is a tad extreme! BTW my teeth were pretty white to begin with!
This stuff is great. I used the Crest strip before and they're allright. I like this better because it's speedy. Also, whenever I use this I always get a ton of compliments on how white my teeth are. I personally use it when I take a shower so I can spit if I accumulate too much saliva (gross I know but it works). Now is does cause me some sensitivity and so I consulted my dental hygenist. She said that if you use sensodyne a week before, during, and the week after using a whitener it will help this problem. This did decrease my sensitivity about 80%.Try it out...its cheap and is works.
Before this, I'd never used a whitening product. I was walking around in Shoppers one day (Yeah, we get it in Canada <3), and I saw it next to the $36 opposition. I thought maybe my smile needed a little spiffin' up, and for $6 I couldn't resist. I just applied it directly into my teeth with a q-tip and let it sit for 10 minutes. But I agree, LOTS of drool, LOVE the taste (I found myself craving it one day!), and does a terrific job at whitening. I feel like grinning at everybody who passes by to show off my pearly whites :D Def a secret weapon, but lets keep it a secret, Ladies!
I use this in the shower because of all the hazardous drool. However long I'm in the shower is how long I keep it in my mouth. It's made my teeth whiter but not completely white. Guess I should give up the coffee? lol I'm having trouble finding a refill gel tube. I bought it was Wal*Mart and they no longer carry the product, nor does Smith's or Alberson's in my town. I'm going to check CVS and Walgreen's. I hope it's not gone off the market.
I have to say, I am really impressed with this product! After about 6 days of twice-daily use, my teeth are whiter than I ever remember them!! One reason for this may be that I have had NO sensitivity at all, which has always prevented me from following-up with a whitening program in the past. Crest Whitestrips and every other product I have used have given me such bad pain that I had to discontinue. Not so with this, it's really great.
I use the mouth trays for top and bottom at the same time, and once I got the hang of how to swallow, etc., I have no trouble at all. As a matter of fact, the trays are in as I type :) Really great product, I fully recommend!
I just purchased this product yesterday after seeing numerous people mention it on youtube. I stopped by MUA and noticed the great reviews as well so I figured I'd give it a shot. I can't say, after only 2 uses, I have the ability to say if it works well or not but I decided to give an initial review of the product (package and such) then update it about a week.
Package: As someone previously mentioned, the tube would be a lot easier to use if it had a narrow tip like shown on the box. The flat, open top makes it easier to concentrate where and how much comes out.
Price: Obviously the price is fantastic! I got mine for $6.00 at CVS. You really can't beat that for a whitening product.
Product: As I mentioned, I have used this product twice so far. I already notice a slight difference in my teeth. I have tried Crest White Strips which I HATE. The taste makes me want to vomit and the strips want to slip off my teeth. Not to mention the horrid sensitivity it causes my teeth to have. The strips would cause my teeth to hurt so bad I would be in tears! This gel (I used it 20 minutes each time) hasn't caused any sensitivity what so ever and the taste is actually quite nice. It has a light, minty taste. The only issue there might be is how much this product makes me drool. I use football mouth guards to keep the product in place and after about 10 minutes it's pouring from my mouth like a faucet! (Sorry, I'm sure that's a disgusting visual.)
EDIT: Well, it's been a couple weeks since I posted this review. I've been using it about 5-10 min about 3 times a week since then and my teeth have never been so white! I LOVE this product! If you've never tried it and are looking to whiten your teeth, please do yourself a HUGE favor and go buy some of this now! You won't regret it.
