I like to keep my teeth nice and white, so when the lovely guys at My White Secret reached out and asked if I would like to try some of their teeth whitening products I, of course, said yes.

I whiten my teeth around 3-4 times a year depending on how much coffee and red wine I drink, as they tend to dull the results quickly. I know, I should knock them both on the head… BUT Monday morning and Friday evening, that is all I am going to say.

To be completely honest I’m not happy with the shape of my teeth, I have a crossbite which makes my right upper teeth slant inward, so I always try to make my teeth as white as possible. Having a brighter smile changes the way I feel towards the shape of my teeth and gives me a lot more confidence.

I was so excited when my pretty pink package arrived and I couldn’t wait to get started. The kit consisted of a 14 day supply of both teeth whitening strips and activated charcoal-coconut oil mix that you swish around your mouth.

It’s best to use both of the products for the same 2 week period, they complement each other and give better results when used together. I used the sachets in the morning and the strips in the evenings when I had a bit more time.

I have tried many teeth whitening products before, but My White Secret whitening strips are the only ones that haven’t given me any sensitivity during the treatment. Obviously, I was very pleased about this. Nobody wants to experience that horrible pain when sipping on, that much needed, iced latte.

I started my treatment 2 weeks ago and these are the results:

I’m so pleased with how bright and white they look. I still might not have a perfect Hollywood smile, but I sure have the sparkle.

Here’s how you use them…

Activated Charcoal:
1. Tear sachet and empty contents into your mouth, swirl the contents in your mouth for 5-15 minutes then spit into the bin. For advanced results, you can also use your toothbrush to brush contents onto your teeth for 1-2 minutes, then continue swirling for the remaining time.

If you’ve never tried oil pulling before it’s quite strange. Previously, I have done it with pure coconut oil and it made me want to gag, but these perfectly combined sachets are flavoured with mint oil too, which makes it a much more pleasant experience. I say pleasant, but I really mean it’s do-able and it definitely doesn’t make you want to vom, lol.

Teeth whitening strips:
1. Tear open the foil packets to reveal two whitening strips.
2. Dry your teeth with a towel and then place the whitening strips on your top and bottom teeth.
3. Keep the strips on for 30 minutes, without eating or drinking.
4. Remove the two whitening strips and rinse off any existing gel.
5. Admire your pearly whites.

I will definitely be doing another round of this treatment before I go away on my holiday in a few months time. If you’d like to try them out for yourself, I would highly recommend, you can use my discount code ‘DBD20‘ to receive 20% off your first order.
