(AD | GIFTED) I have always wanted to have pearly white teeth just like Hollywood celebrities. But professional whitening costs an arm and a leg especially when you have 2 little children and on maternity leave. What’s a mama to do, I hear you ask. Well, one thing you can do is get yourself a teeth whitening kit that you can use at home to create your own magic. This is also great as it can be used easily whilst we are all stuck indoors. When I came across Smileo, I was very excited to have been given the chance to test their teeth whitening kit. I decided to take it for a test drive for 7 days to see whether or not it really works.

Brighten Your Smile (and teeth) with Smileo
Everyone’s teeth are different. Some are sensitive, some are straightforward and some are even very stained. As a result, you may have tried different teeth whitening kits before but they never worked. Most people have complained of teeth sensitivity when using their own teeth whitening kits. I, personally, have used various different teeth whitening strips and some had hurt my teeth pretty badly. My teeth are in fact sensitive and therefore I am very wary as to what I use on my teeth.
One of the main reasons I was excited to give these Smileo, products a try, is that they do not contain any peroxide. Peroxide is usually the main culprit for causing teeth pain and sensitivity. The Smileo products are all 100% natural, vegan, cruelty-free, and are meant to be pain-free (during and after use) causing minimal to no sensitivity to your teeth.
Before we go any further I would like to bring a very important disclaimer to your attention: I am NOT a medical professional and NOR do I urge you to try these products. ALWAYS check with your dental hygienist or dentist before trying any products as everyone’s teeth are different and some may have cavities that could bring on a lot of pain from using teeth whitening products. Seek medical advice and recommendations before trying any new products. and ALWAYS follow the instructions. Please also remember that teeth whitening is not a substitute for normal tooth care and hygiene, which should include brushing twice daily, flossing, visiting the dentist as required and seeing a hygienist every 6 months.
My trial of the Teeth Whitening Kit
I had used the teeth whitening kit for 7 days as directed in the instructions included with the package. The instructions themselves were pretty easy to understand and the main gist behind using the teeth whitening kit was to layer a small amount (less is best) into the silicone tray. You need to attach the tray to the LED Whitening light and insert into your mouth. Then you switch on the light (by pressing the button) and sit like this for up to 30 minutes. It is recommended to go for the full 30 minutes but if you do manage to get any sensitivity or pain then use it for less.

The package also includes a shade map which lets you keep track of how white your teeth get every day. Scroll down for my before and after shots.
I could see a slight difference at day 2. My teeth didn’t sting and they didn’t burn. And I honestly I didn’t get any pain from using the teeth whitening kits. The only thing I had noticed was some swollen gums around day 4, but this subsided pretty quickly.

My trial of the Teeth Whitening Strips
The second product I was gifted as part of this trail, was the teeth whitening strips. The strips fit on quite well and I didn’t feel any burning or pain both during and after use which is great as other teeth whitening strips caused quite a lot of pain (which put me off continuing). With these Smileo teeth whitening strips I actually enjoyed using them and saw a great difference. The package includes strips for 14 treatments.
From my before and after pictures I can see a little difference in the colour of my teeth (whiter). However, I think it would have been better had I used the kit properly every day for the whole 14 days. If you’re able to commit properly then I definitely recommend trying these out for yourselves, and include the strips as well for a full effect. Getting a brighter smile couldn’t be easier and more practical.
The teeth whitening kit was simple, fun and easy to use and I didn’t really notice the tray in my mouth while using it. Their products range from £30-£60 and the next product I would love to try from their range is the activated charcoal which is made out of 100% coconut oil (which we all know is a great ingredient for pretty much every issue you could have).
You can get your own teeth whitening kit (or any other product from their website) with 10% off using code MONICA10. If for some reason you are not happy with your purchase they offer a money-back guarantee.
