I picked up these Crest Vivid Whitestrips a couple of weeks ago and promised a review so here it is…
They are the mildest version of the infamous strips so I wasn’t expecting a Kandee Johnson smile overnight but I was expecting SOMETHING. I got 10 pouches with a strip for my upper a lower teeth. I have now completed the course and so can share my results with you. I took daily photos after Wearing the strips for 30mins and brushing my teeth.. before you say anything… yes I am aware I have crooked teeth!
Okay… so I got results but they aren’t exactly going to set the world alight are they?
My teeth are noticeably whiter but I don’t feel the result will be permanent and the roots of my lower teeth still seem yellow. My top teeth are much whiter so I am pleased but I am still disappointed. It hasn’t put me off trying the stronger strips so watch this space for news on that in the coming months. These strips seemed different to ones I’ve seen people review on YT, they weren’t stiff, they were like a mixture between clingfilm and bubble wrap for your teeth.. very odd and very difficult to get used to and to keep in your mouth. I don’t know if we had an older pack or if it is just the vivid strips but they were not at all what I was expecting. Another thing I noticed was that sensitivity increased towards to end of the course but I’m pleased to report that that wore off a day or two after I stopped using them.
Overall it’s a mixed review I suppose. I wasn’t super impressed but I wouldn’t say no to another box in the future. They definitely did something, maybe my expectations were too high.
Here is the before any after again..
