We all want whiter teeth. With the amount of coffee, wine, tea and other staining foods/drinks, we are left with daily stains on our teeth, which build up to deeper stains over time. In attempt to fight these stains we turn to whitening products: whitening strips, whitening mouthwash, whitening toothpaste, whitening pens, etc. But what makes us choose one whitening product over another? We all want fast results, and we want it to be easy.
I try to use a whitening toothpaste to fight those daily stains, and sometimes I turn to whitening strips if I really need a whitening boost. But for the time in between those two (or if you're not a fan of either), Colgate is introducing the Colgate Optic White Toothbrush + Whitening Pen. Hitting stores this month, this Colgate duo has a built-in whitening pen housed at the bottom of your toothbrush. Simply brush your teeth with the Colgate toothbrush (which I found to be a very nice toothbrush) and when you're done brushing, remove the whitening pen and apply to your teeth. You do not need to wait a certain amount of time, or rinse. Just apply, wipe the top of the pen to rid extra product, store the pen back in your toothbrush, and go! It's really easy and convenient to have it in one product, so you really can't use the excuse "I forgot." No waiting, no rinsing, just "Brush. Whiten. Go."
I really did see a difference with using the whitening pen. It whitened without causing any tooth pain, and the gel adhered and dissolved well without staying on too long. Colgate Optic White Toothbrush + Whitening Pen claims you'll see whiter teeth in 2 days. So what did I see? Well there certainly was improvement in the short use of 2 days, but it's not a startling difference. However, with continued use it can only get better! I like to use the whitening pen before bed, but for best results you should use 2 times daily and then use gel as needed. It is also recommended to start using a new Optic White Toothbrush + Whitening Pen every three months. But to sum it up, good toothbrush, good whitening pen: a product that works and will fit flawlessly into your beauty routine!
