*I know…I know..shoddy title. Forgive me, but when will I ever get to use such a title title again??*
These Blanx products have been on my radar of late, so I was pretty geeked when I found out a couple of weeks ago that I had won the full ‘White Shock’ collection on a blog competition! I had seen a few reviews floating around the interwebs; frankly it was the LED lights that come attached with the paste that caught my attention first, but I would be remiss in my blogging duties if I did not undertake a trial for review purposes.
What’s so special about this toothpaste that marks it from every other whitening toothpaste on the market, I hear you ask? Well, two things; a little patented ingredient named ‘Actilux‘ and the Microwhite LED Activator Light. Actilux is a non-abrasive chemical that binds to the teeth and is activated by the LED light, creating a invisible barrier that blocks the causes of yellowing’ and naturally whitens teeth. This ingredient is primarily featured in all the products above.
Blanx White Shock toothpaste x LED Accelerator
The LED light accelerator automatically lights up when you unscrew the lid and begins to activate the Actilux within the toothpaste while you’re putting the paste on your brush. Technology, eh?. The LED accelerator cap is reusable, so once you have used up the paste, it can be used again and again if you decide to buy another BlanX toothpaste.
Blanx White Shock Mouthwash
Again, another product filled with ALL THE ACTILUX. This light activated whitening mouthwash binds to the teeth and can also be used with the LED accelerator…and the sun. As in natural light from outside, not the direct sun, as walking around grinning at the sun would look a bit dodgy tbh.
Blanx White Shock Gel Pen
This gel pen is hydrogen peroxide-free and can be used anywhere (within sink distance). Simply rub a bit on your teeth, wait a couple of minutes, then rinse.
Blanx LED Bite/Mouthguard
OK how fun does this look? The LED mouthguard is designed for use after brushing and helps to accelerate the whitening process. The guard is to be left in the mouth for 1 – 2 minutes after brushing.
I will be trialing this product for two weeks to see if there are any changes. The product claims to whiten teeth by four shades, which sounds exciting. Here’s a ‘before/current’ photo of my teeth for now.
I will check in with another review in two weeks!
