This is the second time ordering these whitening pencils. The set I ordered has 2 sizes-a smaller one for handbags etc. and the larger vibrating kind. The first time I had to exchange the pens because one did not work, the second time the same thing happened. While I am sure that this is a good whitener, it is not worth it if one in the set doesn't work.

These pens did absolutely nothing for me. A waste of money, and I don't understand what the vibrating suppose to do. Doesn't work half of the time.

This product actually works. Does not cause any sensitivity to teeth and gums. Noticed a difference in a few days.

So far the Smileactives pens are good. They're easy to use - just paint right on, convenient to take on the go. So very different from more expensive trays and syringes of gel from the dentist.
I can see a difference - not sure how many shades. I think In the first couple days I saw the biggest whitening difference. Since using them for about two weeks since, I feel the whitening has plateaued. Or maybe I need to use more than 2-3 times a day.
Flavors are fine, nothing sickening and I find less sensitivity and burning on the gums than I do with the professional dentist kit that costs more.
Overall seems like a good product for the value and they're easy to use if you get in the habit of it. I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 since I'm not blown away by the results but it's working gradually, I think. (Kind of hard to tell even with the shade chart.) I'll keep up with it and hope for the best!

I liked the pens very handy. And I think the vibrite ones are a great idea.
However, since I really disliked the flavor of the pink one, sure I would
NOT have used it.
Also I had issue with gum sensitivity myself. (Never a problem w/ other
home whitening system I've used). Unfortunate as I think potential for
good results possible.
I opted to return this one. Disappointing sigh...
Rated 4 out of 5 by harleywoman883 Pleased with this product.
I have bought & returned several teeth-whitening products before. Can't seem to find one that works fast and doesn't make me gag...:-) These pens work well, and there is no bad taste. I've been using them twice per day for over a week, and I definitely see a difference. It takes only a minute or two, and there's no sitting for 30 minutes with a painful tray or or blue light in your mouth! The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars was because one of the pens was defective, but Customer Service resolved the issue for me. I'm not sending them back, because they work.

Wasn't sure if I should give these whitening pens a whirl, since I have tried others without noticing a difference, I have now been using these whitening pens for a week and there is definitely a color change. I don't think that they will be the snowy white I was looking for but I am confident by the time I finish one pen that they wIll definitely be shades whiter then they were and others have noticed, which make me happy, especially for the price. I also do not have any issues with it making my teeth sensitive like others products did.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Nighthawks These work!
I've only had these pens for a few days, but I can already see whiter teeth. I've only given this 4 stars because although I've used them as directed, my gums became a little sensitive so I might start using them only every other day. Also, one of the pens was defective. I didn't want to send all 4 pens back because the other 3 work, so I called customer service and they refunded me the cost of one pen, which I thought was fair. But I am very pleased with the whitening power I've seen so far and I like these better than strips.
