Smileactives Tooth Whitening Pens

Every so often, I discover a product that puts a smile on my face! The Smileactives Teeth Whitening Duo (special price of $24.98), a recent discovery, was one such product. I love, love, love Smileactives! I don't want to understate my love; I want to shout it from cyberspace!

Anyone who wants a bright, white, and beautiful smile is going to love Smileactives: the fast, effective, and super-convenient path to teeth whitening. We all want white teeth, right? For heavy-duty whitening, I've always used custom-made trays, but with Smileactives, I might not need to use those trays again for a very long time.

I have to fess up. I don't really love the Crest Whitestrips. I have trouble keeping them on, and if I attempt to talk while wearing them, they end up everywhere but on my teeth. My dentist and I talked about that the other day (her experience has been the same) when I told her about Smileactives Tooth Whitening Pens.

You can carry a Smileactives whitening pen with you and use it anywhere, anytime. Each pen lasts for up to three weeks and contains enough for a full course of twice-daily applications. To use the pen, refresh the brush tip by twisting the dial at the opposite end of the brush, and a small drop of the whitening gel will be visible on the brush. Apply a thin layer of the gel directly onto the front surfaces of your teeth and allow it to dry for 30 seconds before resuming your normal activities. It is recommended that you abstain from eating or drinking for 20 minutes after application. That makes perfect sense; you have to give the gel time to work. The gel absorbs quickly and safely whitens your teeth - so safely you can use it up to four times a day. That's all there is to it!

Some participants in the Smileactives clinical trial saw results in as little as two days - like I did. Full results will take longer, depending on the type of teeth staining you have. In a clinical trial, after just three weeks of use, the pen whitened teeth an average of five shades, with some participants seeing up to 10 shades of whitening. I'll caution you that you should always brush your teeth after drinking coffee, tea, red wine, and colas, all of which stain teeth. If you get those staining substances off your teeth right away, you'll find it easier to keep them white. Why not brush your teeth every time you eat? Your dentist will thank you.

I love my Smileactives pens (for anyone keeping track, that's my fourth bolded "love"). I've experienced no sensitivity of my teeth or gums, which can result from whitening products. I can talk while I'm whitening my teeth, and the pen is so convenient, I can use it in my car while driving home from work. We don't want any more distracted drivers our there, so apply it before you leave the parking lot. Each time I use the Smileactives pen, I have this kick-myself thought. Why didn't I think of that? The Oraceutical company did - those brilliant people.

You can purchase Smileactives at QVC. This is a definite buy! I never want to be without Smileactives Tooth Whitening Pens again. One for my bedside, one for my bathroom, one for my car, one for my desk at work - that ought to be enough.

I got an e-mail from QVC that said that over 5,000 items will ship for free on Cyber Monday. That was a ruse to get me to QVC. Unfortunately, this isn't one of the free-shipping items.

One thing that's not a ruse is Smileactives. Love! There - I did it again. Keeping track?

WOW...that is all I can say! I got my Smileactives pens this week and I can already tell a huge difference. I have spent hundreds of dollars on other teeth whitening kits and this pen blows them out of the water. The second day I used the pen I got three compliments on my smile and how white my teeth are! I carry a pen in my purse and keep one in my cosmetic bag. It is so easy to use and doesn't leave a bad taste in your mouth. I ordered from QVC and they have a program that will automatically send new pens every month or two. Well worth the money and the increase in self confidence is priceless! I would recommend this product to EVERYONE!

After putting it on do you have to rinse it off after 30 seconds? No where can I find an answer to this question. All say leave on 30 seconds before resuming normal activity. Just what does that mean? Ok, dont eat or drink anything I understand that but do you rinse it off at all?
