Get those pearly whites ready for Summer!
Hey guys!! It’s been a minute since I’ve published a post but I’m planning on getting back into a regular schedule of trying to post at least once a week! The past few months I’ve sent my focus over solely to Instagram but realized some of you were asking for actual blog posts and figured this would be a perfect time, since majority of the country is working from home, are on quarantine, and probably are looking for some online content. With that being said, I hope everyone is staying safe and healthy, following social distancing rules, and staying home! (If you can) Today, I want to share a product with you that I was so kindly gifted last weekend. It’s the GLO science GLO Lit whitening kit, and as you can probably tell from the name it’s a really cool teeth whitening kit that can be found in major retailers like Sephora, Urban Outfitters, Amazon, QVC, and many more.
First, I just want to introduce their brand a little bit! Created in NYC, GLO Science was created by Dr. Jonathan B. Levine a dental and oral health expert and his wife Stacy. One thing I found incredibly awesome about their brand is that 10% of all GLO profits go to a foundation called GLO Good Foundation which provides free dental care for those in need. How awesome is that?! Personally, it makes me feel better about buying an already amazing product when they are giving back to people at the same time. Any-who, now that you know who they are and what they stand for let’s get into how to use it and what I think of the results!
The kit itself is nice because it’s small enough for travel. Inside my kit was, An LED mouthpiece, and the power pack it connects to, 7 teeth whitening vials (42 applications), a lip moisturizer, a case for the mouthpiece, and the bag to store everything! This kit retails at $149 and refills are available for purchase so overall I think that’s a good deal for all you are getting. Another cool thing about this, is it can be paired with an app on your phone to keep track of your progress, and remind you when to whiten your teeth. However, if you don’t want to you use the app, you can still whiten your teeth without it, which is nice to have the option. The process is also extremely simple, for me I decided to use the app! My steps were as followed:
- Charge the power pack fully.
- Download the app (GLO whitening)
- Plug in the mouthpiece to the power pack
- Pair the device using Bluetooth (super easy)
- Follow the prompts on the app to begin your whitening session.
- Apply lip treatment (important to keep your lips protected and hydrated)
- Apply a SMALL amount of the whitener from the vial to the fronts of your teeth (a little goes a long way)
- Insert the mouthpiece, and sit for 8 minutes! (theres a countdown on your phone if you use the app)
- You can repeat the whitening up to 3 times in a day for maximum results
If you opted not to use the app, you would follow the same steps except the mouthpiece lighting would change when it’s time to stop, or switch applications. When I first started using this, I only whitened once in a day because I was really nervous about sensitivity because my teeth are very sensitive. Pervious whiteners created such discomfort I stopped using them. When I read about this one it said no sensitivity however, I just wanted to be safe. I’m happy to say it caused me ZERO discomfort and that made me so happy because I’ve yet to find a product that has done that for me. Another plus is that you don’t have to worry about the leftover gel on your teeth, because it’s safe to swallow. (The light on the mouthpiece is also safe because theres no UV) Just wait 20 minutes before you eat and drink when your done! Rinse the mouthpiece with warm water, let dry and then your ready for the next day!
So far I’ve been using the kit for about a week and I definitely see an improvement! Getting a little personal here, I actually have always been insecure about my teeth because lets be real no matter what you do, unless your using a whitener (which I wasn’t because of the sensitivity) your teeth are going to be a little dull. I think that the more and more I use this, I will see a huge improvement because for someone who hasn’t used whitener in a VERY long time I already see a significant improvement. This product couldn’t have been introduced at a more perfect time as well, when were all cooped up in the house it’s a perfect time to start! I am a huge fan so far, and I love that I can share things like this with you guys because I genuinely think you’ll like them as much as I do. Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns regarding this product and my results. I will be sharing more updates on my Instagram so make sure to follow along for that if you’re interested!
