A while back I was introduced to iWhite, a teeth whitening brand that promises “instant teeth whitening” effects which are also clinically proven and tested safe. I know you are skeptical, so read on about how the products work.
Instead of rephrasing, I will simply borrow from the horses’ mouth. iWhite’s founder Robin List puts it across this way:
( iWhite products ) contains a few active ingredients, one of them being a cleaning agent, which helps to break down the stains in your teeth – turning them from double bonds to single bonds, so your teeth actually look lighter. A lot of our products also have a film-forming agent, which is loaded with bioactive crystals. They moment they hit your teeth, they become instantly whiter.
iWhite range of whitening products consists of a toothpaste, mouthwash and whitening kit. I’ve been using the toothpaste and mouthwash and they both have a refreshing taste. They are also affordably priced at $9.90 and $10.90 respectively.
For the whitening kit, it costs $49.90 and consists of 10 trays which you can use consistently for 5 days (upper and lower teeth) and these can potentially whiten your teeth up to 8 shades whiter/lighter. You can choose to whiten both upper and lower teeth together (which is what I’d do) or select only upper/lower, whichever is your preference. I’ve not tried it for 5 consecutive days, but for the sake of this blog review, I have tried it once and I think it’s a very fuss-free experience. Basically you are advised to use this after brushing your teeth and sleeping, pop this into your mouth for 20 minutes and then when the time’s up, remove it and go to sleep without rinsing your mouth or brushing your teeth. This is so that the ingredients can continue to work their effect on your teeth through the night. It does get a little uncomfortable after putting the guards/kit in for a while and you will salivate more than usual, but there is no pain or discomfort otherwise. The only problem I have in using this kit, is with reference to my lifestyle and no fault of the kit – I always drink a cup of green tea before I sleep, so it’s hard for me to skip the green tea or to drink it, rinse my teeth, use this kit and then sleep. Oops.
If you’re looking for an affordably priced and safe, home based whitening range/kit, you can definitely consider iWhite. You will find them at Guardian and Watsons stores islandwide.
We also brought home with us, handmade Lip Oil and Lip Scrub! 🙂
Thank you iWhite Singapore and WOM PR for having me at the media preview and these products for review! 🙂
