GoSmile Home Teeth Whitening Kit-Review and Giveaway!!



If you're anything like me, then oral care is an important part of your health and beauty routine.  And having white teeth is a big part of that! Well, if you'd like to have brighter, whiter teeth without dealing with the dentist bills and appointments, I have a company you need to check out-GoSmile! I received a selection of GoSmile products for review. My package included the Speed Whitening System (a 2-step, 4-day whitening kit), Pre-Whitening Gel, Green Apple Luxury Toothpaste, and Touch Up Ampoules in Green Apple. 




The Speed Whitening System is a unique kit that provides all you need to whiten your teeth up to 8 shades in just 4 days! (It also includes a bonus practice set, so you can get acquainted with how the system works before use!). There are 2 simple steps to the routine, that you do morning and evening for 4 days. I love how easy it is to apply the products. There's no struggling with trays...it's virtually free from any mess and stress! After brushing teeth, you use the pre-whitening gel swab (basically like a q-tip that is coated in the gel) and apply to your teeth. Immediately follow with an application of the speed whitening system ampoules. This is, again, very easy to use-just squeeze the tube until you hear a pop, and continue to squeeze until the swab is coated with the liquid. Rub onto your teeth until the liquid is gone. The product dries out within 30 minutes (no eating or drinking during this time), and then repeat morning and evening for a total of 4 days! Another benefit to this system is that each application is packaged individually, so you don't have to measure out a specific amount, or worry about using too much at one time.




I was very pleasantly surprised by how fresh tasting the Green Apple Toothpaste was. I am a very big fan of mint toothpaste, and honestly have never liked any other kinds/flavors. But, the GoSmile green apple toothpaste leaves my mouth feeling just as fresh and clean as mint toothpaste! I really like the results I have seen. (As a matter of fact, I hid this so that no one else in the family can use it...I know I should share, but I don't want to!)
A unique aspect of GoSmile is that they not only offer products to get your teeth white, they also help you keep your teeth white! The Green Apple Touch-Up Ampoules are so handy! These are a great item to keep on hand in your purse or in the car, so anytime you need an extra polish or want to keep that coffee stain from setting-pop and apply! Very useful!




Another benefit I realized with the GoSmile system is it didn't cause any sensitivity to my teeth. I used another home whitening kit last year, and it left my teeth very sensitive and with a slight burning sensation in my gums. With GoSmile, though, there were no problems!




Unfortunately, I didn't think to take a "before" picture, but let me tell you...this is a major improvement on my teeth!


"GO SMiLE's PhD scientists theorized that technologies that assist in breaking down hydrogen peroxide into its active components will "accelerate" or "boost" the whitening process. Smile Whitening Light is the result of a lengthy design and development process — it's the ultimate whitening "accelerating" device for at-home use. It brings cutting-edge dentist-approved technology into your home, to make teeth whitening faster and easier than ever.
Smile Whitening Light works powerfully with GO SMiLE Whitening Ampoules, to whiten teeth quickly — in just one sitting! After the whitening serum is applied, the light is shone onto the teeth for three 10-minute sessions.
Lights on their own can't effectively or safely whiten teeth. However, certain wavelengths of light energy can activate the peroxide in our whitening ampoules to accelerate whitening. The serum absorbs the energy, which photochemically "excites" the peroxide molecules into breaking down faster. It provides "activating energy" that speeds up and improves the performance of whitening.
When applied to teeth coated with the serum in Whitening Ampoules, Smile Whitening Light improves the chemical reaction that occurs. It makes more efficient use of the same amount of peroxide — speeding up the reaction, producing more of the ions that whiten teeth — maximizing the action and efficacy of the whitener.
GO SMiLE scientists were very careful about what kind of light to use and chose LEDs for their safety and effectiveness. They knew that heat, or very short wavelengths of light, could provide a great deal of energy. However, both can damage living tissue, cause pain, and can even destroy the nerves and pulp of teeth. Some whitening lights contain UV light - the same wavelength that can cause skin damage. It's very important to choose the correct wavelength of light that will work safely!
Smile Whitening Light has been scientifically engineered to provide the best, exclusive combination of safe light wavelengths for tooth whitening. It accelerates the whitening process without generating a damaging level of heat or radiation. Rather than providing just one color of light, these LEDs were selected to emit a broader range of the appropriate wavelengths. This leads to maximum absorption by the formula and efficient acceleration of whitening.
Smile Whitening Light is a scientifically engineered, patent-pending design to efficiently illuminate the entire "smile zone", and the energy-efficient LED bulbs will work for thousands of hours.
Smile Whitening Light optimizes the performance of Whitening Ampoules, so you can get whiter teeth in just one sitting, safely, comfortably, and effectively!"

One of my readers will win a GoSmile Speed Whitening System, Green Apple Toothpaste and Green Apple Touch-Up Ampoules!!
