Teeth Whitening With Smileo

We all dream of the perfect Hollywood smile don’t we?….. but many of us also love our daily coffee and a glass of red! This is the never ending battle that I have always faced. I have always been very fortunate to have naturally straight teeth and have used many home whitening products in my time, but I have always been conscious of the damage that peroxide based whitening products can cause, especially since I experienced a burnt gum incident a few years ago. This is why when Smileo told me about their safe, natural and easy to use products, I couldn’t wait to give them a try.

I was kindly sent the Smileo teeth whitening kit and the 3D Whitening strips to try. Having whitened my teeth at home for years, I was no stranger to either type of product, but what made Smileo products stand out for me is that Smileo’s tooth whitening products are vegan friendly, cruelty free as well as painless, 100% natural and peroxide free. Sounds pretty impressive right? Here’s how I got on.

Smileo Teeth Whitening Kit

This nifty little box of goodies promises to make teeth up to 8 shades whiter in only 7 days. The box contains 3 gel syringes, a mouth tray, UV light including battery (nice touch Smileo) and a colour card so that you can track your progress. I found the kit simple to use and loved that such great results can be achieved with only ten minutes use per day. I found the mouth tray pretty comfortable and it held against my teeth well and best of all I experienced NO sensitivity at all. The UV light is great quality and much stronger in brightness than others I have used in the past. I think this kit would be perfect for the time conscious, it’s compact and speedy with fantastic results. Smileo also offer a refill kit of syringes so that you can keep your white smile looking perfect without having to re purchase the accompanying products.

3D Whitening Strips

From the moment I used these strips I loved them. I have slightly wonky bottom teeth and have struggled to get whitening strips to stick to my lower teeth in the past. The shape of the lower strip is cleverly thought out and shaped for the perfect fit. The soft, thin strips are almost invisible on your teeth and are made from coconut shell! The strips are worn for around 30 minutes, although I did sometimes forget I had them on and left them for longer. I found the strips really comfortable, they have no nasty tastes and loved that I could still talk with them on my teeth. I saw instant results after using them and again experienced absolutely no sensitivity.

Overview

Since the using Smileo products, I feel so much more confident with my smile in photos and real life. I have already had compliments about my white teeth which is always a great confidence booster. I recommend Smileo to those who are looking to reverse years of stains on their teeth, without spending a fortune on doing it professionally. It’s a quick, and effective method at a fraction of the price it would be at the dentist. I love that Smileo products contain no nasties and I can truly see and feel the difference between using chemical based products in the past and natural products from Smileo now. My teeth feel strong, look great and have left me with a Hollywood white smile with ZERO sensitivity. As you can see my before and after results took my shade from around a 4-5 right up to a 1 in just 7 days!
