Beauty Tip: Whitening Lightning

I'm all about the teeth. I always notice when someone has a perfect bright white smile. I love the dentist. I get giddy when six months is up and my appointment rolls around. I'm passing that on to James and he looks forward to brushing his teeth everyday.

The thing is, not all teeth are always sparkling white. Especially if you're a coffee drinker (guilty) or a lover of soda and candy. 

That's where Whitening Lightning  comes in. I was recently introduced to this amazing company and had the opportunity to try out the Dial A Smile Professional Teeth Whitening Kit as well as the Super Booster Whitening Pen.

I used the dial a smile kit for three days in a row- just like the instructions said to. 

The kit comes with everything you need to do a professional teeth whitening in the comfort of your own home. 

This set is really easy to use and the instructions are simple. My kind of product. 

I think the best way to explain this product to you is to SHOW you. So here are some not so cute selfies as your guide. 

First, you need to use the dial included to match your teeth to their current shade. My teeth were at a 6 and the dial goes from a 1 being the best to a 16 being the worst. So 6 isn't too bad but I'm determined to get to a 1!! This product says you can get 4-7 shades lighter if you use it correctly for the three days. 

Use the blue pads provided to completely wipe down your teeth. You want those babies DRY!

The whitening gel is in a syringe. You simply squirt a third of it out into the provided cap and then use the included q tips to clean and protect your gums and then the little black brush to put the gel on your teeth. Store the syringe in the fridge. 

A tip I learned when applying the gel- yes, you want to apply generously, but not TOO generously or you are going to have some intense drool. 

Use the LED light for 20 minutest each of the three days. 

Tip- it's MUCH easier to just put that sucker in your mouth so you can be hands free. It's totally comfortable. 

So I did this for THREE days exactly as I was supposed to. 

They give you a VERY generous amount of gel that I actually had enough to repeat the process and do it a second time for a total of SIX DAYS. 

I also used the super booster whitening pen for 14 days. It recommends using it once every day for 2 weeks right before bed time. 

The pen is very easy to use. You just twist the bottom until the gel comes out and then paint on a thin coat on each tooth. Smile wide for 60 seconds so it dries and you're good to go. 

So between the six  day professional at home treatment (I had enough to do the three day treatment twice) and the fourteen days using the super booster whitening pen, here are my results- 

I went from a shade six to a shade two. So FOUR shades lighter. These products definitely whitened my teeth. While they did not bring me to the perfect one I was hoping for, it did lift my teeth four whole shades and that's so close to the one I was hoping for!

I'm pretty sure that if I continue to use the super booster whitening pen and if I repeated the dial a smile kit again that I would easily get to a shade one. 

What I liked about the product- 
-easy to use
-everything is included 
-you can be hands free while doing this
-definitely gave my teeth a whitening boost 

Overall I would recommend this product to anyone who wants whiter, brighter teeth, wants it done in the comfort of their own home and on their own time, and doesn't want to shell out thousands of dollars to get it done in a dentist office. 

I'm impressed and I'm satisfied with a level TWO.
