I have a fun giveaway for my Friday favorites today! Linking up with Amanda to share my very positive experience with Smile Brilliant’s at home teeth whitening kit! Skip down to the bottom if you trust my judgment and you’re just here for the giveaway. 😉
Disclosure: This post was compensated by Smile Brilliant and I received free product in exchange for an honest review.
When I was first contacted by Smile Brilliant about this campaign, I thought I could easily slip it into my back to school routine. It would coincide well with our anniversary trip and my fall business trips. As my non-profit has grown, so too has my public role. I find myself giving more and more presentations, especially at the national level. This is a great opportunity but it leaves me wanting to feel my most confident.
When I competed in pageants (don’t laugh – I actually learned a lot), I did an in-office teeth whitening treatment, which was great (but expensive). Observation: I had a lot more time for self-care during those days. The Smile Brilliant at home teeth whitening kit can be completed entirely from your own home. In my case, at home means on the road, so it fits my busy lifestyle perfectly.
Smile Brilliant At Home Teeth Whitening – How It Works
The box arrives with everything you need to get started, including putty, the molds for creating the impressions, whitening gel, and desensitizing gel. Despite the straight-forward instructions, I was immediately dubious. I was worried the putty would trigger my (very sensitive) gag reflex. I also worried that the molds wouldn’t fit in my mouth. Thankfully, I was wrong on both counts. Creating the impressions of my teeth couldn’t have been simpler!
The putty hardens over night and you can drop the molds into the pre-addressed stamped envelope the following morning! Approximately 10 days later, my whitening trays arrived in a portable storage container. Easy enough.
The syringes made it easy to ensure that I was coating the front of my trays and to control how much whitening gel I was using. I remembered how sensitive my teeth would be after office treatments, so I started my whitening treatments using a 30-minute interval. When I didn’t experience any sensitivity, I increased it to 45 minutes.
The few times I did experience sensitivity, I would coat my teeth with the desensitivity gel. I also would give my teeth a break between treatments. It didn’t happen very often; I found the entire process to be pretty mild.
At Home Teeth Whitening – Smile Brilliant Results
I received my whitening kit right before my whirlwind month of travel. I found myself whitening at home, in Venice, in Prague, in Boston, in Williamstown, and in New York City. My whitening trays fit easily into my cosmetic kit and the syringes are well below the 3oz rule, so I could carry them in my carry-on baggage. (TSA never stopped me!)
(Photos seriously make everything better. You can’t even tell how beat up that bag is.)
Though I couldn’t tell a stark difference, I definitely felt more confident about my smile after completing my whitening treatments. Knowing that I had done my part made it easier to smile in our anniversary photos in Venice, and I didn’t feel quite as self-conscious when I approached the podium at NACAC or College Board Forum. I was ready for anything!
The best thing about the Smile Brilliant at home teeth whitening kit was how easily it fit into my busy lifestyle. I didn’t have to go to the dentist to have perfectly fitting custom trays made nor did I spend hours whitening my teeth. Whether I slipped my trays in before a bubble bath or as I sat down to get some work done, my teeth whitening could fit perfectly into my schedule. The ease made it a product that I can easily get behind.
(Ever wonder what irreverent comment you’re making in pictures? I do.)
