I've tried the Crest strips in the past and didn't care for the harsh taste and also made teeth and gums very sensitive, so I decided to give these a try and was so glad I did!! These strips were so easy to apply and stayed on very well, taste was pleasant and literally half the price of leading brands. Being a smoker and coffee drinker I couldn't be happier with the results I've seen in just a few days. Definately will recommend and order again!!
I'm not sure why all the reviews are about a toothbrush when I received whitening strips, which is what I wanted.
That said, these are incredible. They work super fast and actually have noticeable results. The packaging may be sketchy and have Chinese characters on it but this product WORKS. I noticed results after only 2 uses and my teeth were quite yellow, as I'm a daily coffee drinker. I cut the strips in half to whiten my side teeth so they match the white front ones too.
Only con is the peppermint flavor is kind of gross and made me gag at first but I got used to it quick. Also expect your teeth to be slimy and your mouth to be super slimy when you take the strips off.
Otherwise if you're wanting a sign to get these, get them! These WORK and they give great results. And for a third of the cost of the name brand, it's WORTH IT.
I'm skeptical about most whitening kits, but I'll try almost everything to see how and if it really works. These surprisingly work really well for a strip, but there is a trick to using them. When placing them on, make sure you go from the middle out so you can get between the teeth or you'll have spots. Keep them on for as long as you can for maximum effect. They aren't wide enough to fully fold over your teeth, or long enough to include your molars if you want all your teeth whitened. It says swallowing is safe but it tastes chemically in my opinion, fake mint flavoring so not very pleasing. I used a mouth guard for the first 30 minutes then I took it out for the next 30. Your saliva will dissolve the "sticky" of the whitening strip, if it doesn't then they are a pain to remove.
I really love this product. It's such a gentle whitener I have super sensitive gums so I fear whitening products but I got their tooth brush and really dug it so I said why not? The pictures are from my first time using it. I see a difference. Best part is is that it keeps getting better and there is no pain. Love this product.
My verdict is still a bit out on this product. I've used the crest white-strips and had them slip around and taste bad, and caused sensitivity. So, I thought I'd try a different brand. These are much thicker than the crest, so they are more secure and don't slip around as much. They taste much better than the others too - like a soft mint flavor. These didn't make me spit every 5 seconds either. There is a photo color assessment chart which is helpful in assessing what color you are starting at and how you are progressing. I did get a little sensitive using these two days in a row, so I backed off to every second or third day - which helped. I was also busy getting ready for my daughter's wedding, which is why I wanted whiter teeth. I've attached photos of my starting point, about a 12 for yellow, and then after each treatment. I think I made it to about shade 8 by the wedding, I would have done a few more treatments if I wasn't so busy getting ready for guests and a big party. These photos are in order of treatments and in the same spot with the same LED "daylight" lighting and no sunlight. I'm a coffee drinker, and did not stop my morning coffee while doing these treatments - so that might have helped. It's really challenging to photograph the progress, and for me the whitening was subtle. See photos and you decide. I feel like I improved about 4 shades whiter on the included color assessment chart.
These teeth whitening strips are easy to use, affordable, and of good quality. They're gentle yet effective, and the set comes with instructions and tips on how to make it work best for you. I have very sensitive teeth and gums and haven't had a problem yet! I would recommend this to others, particularly because so many whitening kits on the market are way overpriced with the same results. If you're not used to using whitening strips, it may take a couple times to get used to it. It can get a little messy when you have to peel them off your teeth after 30 minutes to an hour of wear per session. Do it over a trash can because some slobber will fall. Yeah, kinda like your labrador retriever. I recommend spitting in the sink before removing the strips. Afterwards, rinse your mouth out well and brush your teeth, as there will be some leftover residue. But the results make it all worth it! My teeth were noticeably whiter after only a couple uses, and they continue to brighten! 😁
Used this for one week. I am a tough case for something like this as I basically drink coffee professionally. Even so, you can see the before and after pics, several shades whiter indeed! In conjunction with the Fairy-will water flosser I am making strides to improve my smile at home and reasonably priced!
I tried these out and was quite amazed at the results. Few shades lighter in just a couple treatments. They dont cause too much sensitivity, but do eventually like all teeth whiteners, thats how you know they are working correctly. I bought some remineralization gel to help with the sensitivity and that really helped. The ingredients are the same as the crest strips but are just way, way more affordable. Do yourself a favor and try these before breaking the bank on the overpriced crest strips. These do the same job at a fraction of the cost. A++ all day, thank you Fairywill for continuing to provide quality products at a price point everyone can afford.
Well, I must say I am duly impressed. I was definitely skeptical. These strips contain the same ingredients, though probably not in the same quantity, as Crest White Strips. In fact, I came upon these as I was looking for the Crest. When I did an ingredient list comparison, these contain the very similar ingredients; however, I found the hydrogen peroxide to be a little further down the line on the FairyWill versus the Crest. I believe the peroxide is key in whitening.
In my opinion, these are about as close as you will find to the expensive brand as far as quality. These even stretch better than the Crest strips. I can cover all the teeth in front and the ones on the sides that show when I smile (even my biggest smile :) )
With that being said, let's talk about cost. I can find the Crest Whitestips Professional Effects on eBay for around $30 on average. When you do a cost comparison, this box of strips is less expensive. Crest contains 20 treatments as opposed to this box of 14 days. Math states these are less expensive by about $1.29 a treatment; whereas the Crest is $1.50 per treatment. So all in all, these are excellent! I'd absolutely recommend them.
