Smileactives Teeth Whitening Pen Duo
No directions are given on how long to leave on!
When you apply this product it's gooey and eventually you will want to brush your teeth. Neither the video presentation nor the package instructions tell you for how long to leave it on, after how long you can brush your teeth, eat etc. And the fact that the company's website (Smileactives) does not link to anything when one presses the "contact us" button, does not instill in me with a great deal of confidence. Until I receive proper info on how to use this product, it's useless to me!
Part of daily dental hygiene
I use this whitening pen as part of my dental hygiene, especially after my breakfast blueberry smoothie and coffee. I go along with the mantra "if you're not whitening, you're yellowing!" Can't claim a veneers-type white, but a subtle and distinct brightening. Very rejuvenating for me , and I give away to older grandchildren to encourage smiling!
Good product, easy to use
I have used them for several years now, and to be honest, I am addicted to them. I just don't want to be without them! They are not miracle workers, and no one should expect that. However, they are great in that they make my teeth a little whiter and leave my breath so fresh. Don't expect miracles, but they are very good and so easy to use with no sensitivity whatsoever, and they are reasonably priced. I do wish they would have longer lasting whitening power. Like another customer said, 'They seem to whiten initially, but much of the whitening wears off too quickly.' Overall, though, I do like these whitening pens and will continue buy them if they stay reasonably priced.
Good product for the price...
I have been using this product for about 3 weeks now. I use it at least twice a day, sometimes up to 4 times, depending how busy I am. I didn't see much improvement; maybe one shade whiter? I didn't have really stained or yellow teeth to begin with so I don't know if someone who does would have better results than I did. I like the product to combat new stains and like the convenience of the pen over, say, a whitening strip. I keep one in my purse and can use it after coffee or wine. I haven't had any sensitivity. The taste is nice. Overall, I am happy with the product. I look at these pens as more of a maintenance program.
I have been using this product for about a week at least 2 to 3 times a day and I don't feel it has whitened my teeth at all.I will give it another week to see if any change but I'm not holding my breath.
I wasn't sure that the teeth whitening pen would significantly change the color of my teeth but within about three days I began to see a difference! I would definitely recommend this product.
Wish it worked, but didn't for me
I purchased this item, because my teeth are slightly stained from drinking tea, etc. However, I used as explained for 2 weeks, and didn't really see any results. It doesn't taste bad, or didn't cause me any sensitivity, and is easy to use. However, when applied, it seems to kind of look brighter for a few minutes while the gel is drying, but then within ten minutes it was back to normal. So, it is way too temporary, definintely not something that is cumalative at all. Wish it worked for me, but unfortunately didn't. Will be returning this one.
GIFTED & SHE LOVED IT
I got this in the 8 piece Beauty Testtube a few shipments ago (I'm on A-D). The packaging was a little different (all white, no blue) but the name on the tube was identical to this one. So I can only assume since I received this about 18+ months ago they changed the packaging. I had no use for it. I have dentures. So why the 5 star? I often make 'beauty gift baskets' for those special in my life. I made one for my sister in law when she came to visit. After a few weeks I received a phone call. Her exact words 'Where did you get that whitening pen from?' I NEED more. Said her co-workers & friends noticed as she did a dramatic whitening to her teeth...So I would recommend this product based on anothers testimony....My sister in law.
I tried another brand from QVC and was very disappointed, so I was skeptical about trying this product. I have been pleasantly surprised. I could definitely tell a difference within a few days and more so within a few more days. It is very convenient to use and there is no sensitivity.
Results were non-existent
As the video promised, I did not experience any sensitivity whatsoever with the product and it does not have an unpleasant taste. These are the only reasons the product is receiving a 2 star rating instead of a one star rating. As for the touted whitening, I honestly haven't noticed the promised results. I've been using it for two weeks, as directed, and I certainly have not whitened 5-7 shades, let alone 1 shade. My teeth were not optic white to begin with, but they weren't horribly yellowed either. Overall, I'm fairly disappointed and will not purchase this product again. If it sounds too good to be true. . . .
If I notice any change in results in the next two weeks, I will revise my review.
I have been using this whitener for many years. It's an excellent product. I'm in my 60s & it does the job. My dentist even remarked how white my teeth are. I believe keeping your teeth white takes 10 years off your face. I would highly recommend it.
Whitened without Sensitivity
The Smileactives Teeth Whitening Pens worked well for me. They whitened my teeth noticeably over a period of a couple of weeks. I used the pens as the TV presentation directed 2-3 times/day and it worked well for me. They didn't cause any teeth sensitivity or irritation at all. I liked the pens better than the whitening strips or trays and will use them again.
