How I whiten my teeth at home

We all want that pearly white Hollywood smile, right? I have tried hundreds of different kinds of toothpastes that claim to whiten your teeth, but none of them actually gave me the results I was looking for. And after hundreds of pounds spent on the products that did nothing for me, I  finally found something that gave me unbelievably white teeth and I thought it's time for me to share these products with you guys!
My first holy grail product is Crest 3D White whitening strips, which I am pretty sure most of you have seen YouTubers raving about them. I discovered Crest strips after watching Kathleen Light's talking how she gets her teeth to look so white. After browsing online I was struggling to find these strips in the UK, I didn't know if the websites selling it were trusty and selling genuine products.

It took me some time to do my research, but I finally found CaliWhite website selling the goods and took a risk to order it from there. Strips arrived within a week and I was beyond excited to try them out. On the day three of using the strips, I have noticed a huge difference already in my teeth colour and I was shocked to see how white my teeth looked after finishing all strips (20 treatments). You get 40 strips (20 for the top and 20 for bottom teeth) in the box, which cost you around £50 depending on which strips you choose.

What Crest says about it: 

Why pay for professional teeth whitening treatments? Crest 3D White Professional Effects Whitestrips are just as effective because they’re formulated with the same enamel-safe ingredient dentists use.

Crest 3D White Professional Effects Whitestrips:
  • Deliver professional-level teeth whitening results at home
  • Remove 14 years of stains for a whiter smile
  • Give you results that last 12 months and beyond
  • The strips mould to the shape of your teeth and come off cleanly
  • Whitestrips are so easy to use: you can whiten while you walk, talk, work, even drink water results in 20

I chose Crest 3D Whitestrips Professional Effects as it had the best reviews. I apply it once a day for 30 mins. Strips stick on very well and do not slip or slide around your mouth. You can still drink water while whitening your teeth and it has no taste at all. It took me few days to get used to it, but after a while, I would barely even notice it. One thing I have to say, your teeth gets very sensitive after using it for few days, but you can skip a day or two for your teeth to get back to normal and then start it all over again. Crest uses the same enamel-safe teeth whitening agent dentists use, so it does no damage at all. Also, the box says that results last up to 12 months and I strongly agree with that, but if you don't drink too much coffee, tea or wine then you might have white teeth for much longer! 

After I complete my 20 Crest whitening treatments, I like to keep whitening my teeth with CarbonCoco goodies. I have received these products from the lovely brand, simply to try them out and it honestly did not disappoint. I was a little sceptical at first, but I quickly changed my mind. I used Ultimate Carbon Kit which includes activated charcoal toothpaste, toothbrush with bamboo bristles and activated charcoal polish.

What CarbonCoco says about it: 

The Activated Charcoal Tooth Polish

Unlike the usual activated charcoal from health stores, this is made of finely milled Organic Coconut Activated Charcoal with a hint of Bentonite Clay and Lemon Myrtle.
This special formula is proven to be very gentle yet effective in detoxifying the mouth and removing stains! It has zero taste and smell.

The Activated Charcoal Toothpaste

This is a toothpaste formula that doesn’t have fluoride. It also contains our magic ingredient: activated charcoal!
The toothpaste is black but turns into white foam while brushing, and it has a yummy minty taste.
The toothpaste is designed to protect your teeth from further staining throughout the day, so you won’t mess up your results if you love coffee and coloured drinks!

I would brush my teeth with charcoal polish few times a week to keep them white. The whole process can be a little messy so you need to make sure you are close to the sink. The charcoal has no taste at all, which is a huge bonus. Also, you get tons of product in the tub so it will last for ages! You will see the results after a week or so and it's truly impressive. The Activate Charcoal Toothpaste has to be my favourite! It tastes so good and it leaves your teeth EXTREMELY clean and fresh. Oh and let's not forget the toothbrush. It is hands down the softest brush I've ever used! It has bamboo embedded in to every bristle on the brush and it feels very different when brushing your teeth. Currently, this kit is on sale for $45 and they ship internationally!
