I am obsessed with getting whiter teeth and even though I don’t really need to have them any whiter, (luckily I’m one of those people with white teeth anyone – or people say I do) I do still want them whiter. It’s something I’ve always been obsessed with and maybe that’s to do with the fact both my parents have always been chain smokers staining their teeth slightly – I’m not saying everyone who smokes has stained teeth either, I’m just stating that my parents do.
I’ve tried various teeth whitening strips and pens and they did work for a bit but then my teeth have always ended going back to their ‘normal’ shade which for me isn’t white enough, I mean who wants to wear a red lipstick without pearly whites? Not quite Ross’s from Friends pearly whites though, nobody wants glow in the dark teeth. I’ve never heard of a teeth whitening liquid before CB12* so I was a little wary about trying it since I have no idea how a liquid can actually whiten your teeth, like I kind of understand about how the strips and pens work but not a liquid!
With the CB12 Liquid Teeth Whitener* (£15) you’re meant to put about 10ml in your mouth and rinse it about a little for about a minute, gargle then spit it out and rinse with water – twice a day after you brush your teeth. To me that’s a lot of effort I’m not going to lie when I say I love a quick and easy fix, that’s why I actually ended up only doing mine once a day in the morning and I even missed a few days too. So instead of getting pearly whites in two weeks like you’re meant to if you follow the instructions it’s taking me longer, it’s been about two weeks for me now and I’m going to be completely honest when I see very little difference – I do see a bit of a difference but not that much. I even asked my boyfriend if he thought my teeth was any whiter and he said no. Plus the first time you use it it absolutely burns it’s the same if you have any little cuts in your mouth, I mean you do kind of get used to it but I think that’s just because it’s strong and I actually didn’t know how much 10ml was so I ended up guessing each time . . .
But as I said I haven’t been using it like you should do and if I did I would probably see quite a bit more of a difference, even though I do like this product I don’t like it more than my trusty whitening strips so I think I’ll stick to those. But I do think I might give this a proper go and not be so lazy in the future!
Have you ever tried CB12 before?
