Colgate Optic White Toothbrush + Built-In Whitening Pen- Influenster Review

I received the Colgate Optic White Toothbrush + Built-In Whitening Pen from Influenster for review about a week ago. It claims to give a whiter smile in just two days, so I put it to the test. After two days of using both the toothpaste and whitening pen morning and night I didn’t see a difference in my smile. I then decided to give it a few more days. The photos below are my before picture and my after pictures, which is after 5 days of use morning and night.20140310-111220.jpgIt may be a little hard to tell from the photos but I would say my teeth are whiter after using the product after 5 days. But I would say not dramatically so. They are maybe a shade whiter and still not as white as I would like them to be. After I tried it, my husband decided to give it a go. He quit using it after the second use. For me, it did not make my teeth hurt or over sensitive but for him it did. So if you are prone to tooth sensitivity I would not recommend this product. Also if you are looking for a dramatic white smile I don’t think this is the product for you either. However if you have just whitened your teeth or your teeth are fairly white naturally I would recommend this product to you. I think of it more as a maintenance pen. Use it everyday to keep those pearly whites, white. I also liked the convenience of it, since the actually whitening pen is stored in the handle of the toothbrush. And note one the actual tooth brush, for me I prefer a softer/medium brush and the bristles on this one are a little hard so if you don’t like harder brushes that may be a turn off for you as well.

Overall I like this product for maintaining a white smile, but just not for actually obtaining a white smile. I will continue to use this in conjunction with my other tooth whitening products.

Have any of you ever tried this? What did you think?
