Smileactives Teeth Whitening Pen Duo
Good touch up product
I've smoked for over twenty years, drank plenty of coffee and tea and I'm in my 40's. I've never used a dentist or otc whitening product before. My teeth aren't the worst, but they are 40 yr. old smoker teeth. I quit btw last yr and this July will be one year for me smoke free. :-) Quitting smoking made me want to try something to whiten my teeth since I'm not constantly yellowing them with cigarettes anymore. OK, I used as directed and didn't have any gum sensitivity and my teeth did get whiter. Not leaps and bounds whiter, but definitely whiter. I even took a before photo to compare. I think this product is very nice and would be better after a whitening treatment either with strips or whatever you use. Like an up keep product. Now, I haven't used it for a few weeks and I do notice a dullness to my teeth since I do still drink coffee and tea. I've been reading about different otc whitening products and who's happy with what and will most likely try this and continue using these little pens for up keep. I was kind of surprised to see an improvement at all since I didn't use a tray or strip product first and because of my age. I saw improvement so I can't complain. Overall, I would say try it if you're looking for an in between major treatments product or if you already have whiter teeth and would just like to keep them that way. And use it as directed, letting it sit to dry and not drinking. I wish it came with a color chart. That's my only complaint which is why I took a photo before I began and have taken a later photo in the same light as best as I could get it.
Anyone who was disenchanted by GoSmile (and I was one of these) will love this product. The dispensers all worked. The product whitened my teeth and didn't burn or taste unpleasant. I really think QVC should abandon GoSmile as an item and just stick with this pen.
Have seen no difference yet....if I ever do???
I have used this type of tooth whitening product before, but a different brand. I honestly see not one bit of difference so far...wonder how long it takes to see anything? I will not purchase this product again I'll probably do better at the local drug store.
DID NOT WORK THIS TIME
I have used this product and was pleased with it. I ordered it recently and it no longer worked. I don't know if the formula was changed, because my teeth turned grayish and stained more quickly. I discontinued using it, bought some whitener from my dentist and my teeth are white again. Am convinced Smileactives was the culprit. Returned to QVC. Maybe I got a bad batch. Too bad. It surely was convenient to use.
Really excellent whitening power with little to no discomfort or dental sensitivity.
I use it every morning after I eat breakfast and brush my teeth. By the time I get to work my smile is nice and bright. Give it a try, the pens last forever and are very cost effective. Thanks QVC!
Worked for me!!!!!
Love the results I got after using this twice a day for a week, then maintenance every other day...about 5 shades whiter than before. Removes staining from coffee and wine drinking. Can't realistically expect it to fix tetracycline staining, though, which is my main problem, but it does help!
My husband and I both used this, twice a day for 3 weeks. So far we notice nothing different. No whiter teeth than before we started using. I agree with another posted, it might work for some poeple but just not for us.
This product really hurts my teeth and gums from the first time I applied. I have only used it 3-4 times total 1x a day. I used it last a week ago and my teeth & gums still hurt.
After using this product for a week, my gums and inside of cheeks got irritated and quite painful. At this point, I stopped using the product and everything returned to normal within a week. Too bad, because it does whiten teeth well...but it's just not worth the side effects for me.
With all the good reviews I thought this would great. My teeth are sensitive so I thought I would try it. I can't tell a difference and I've been using it for a week.
What works on some doesn't necessarily work on others. Each person just has to try it for themselves..
Stellar Return to White!
Love these as I am a 40 plus mother who lives off coffee and tea for a treat, but have accumulated serious yellow stains between check ups. I had used these last winter and loved them and came back for more as I ran out in the summer. Stellar return to white again in just a few days and still getting brighter after two weeks! Keep up the great work!
After stopping use of product I now have stains!!!
I would like to know if anyone else had a problem with this product? My teeth have always been generally white but I decided to give this product a try to see if it would get them even whiter. This is my first time using a whitener and I am severely disappointed that after stopping use I now have severe stains that I never had before!! Does this type of product wear off enamel or something? It is like my teeth had a protective barrier before...... And now stains are terrible! Thanks to this product I have to go to my dentist and hopefully figure it out! Wish I would have never used This product! Buyer beware is an understatement!!!!!!!!!!
