Smile Brilliant Brilliantly Simple Kit Review & Giveaway !

Want whiter teeth without having to visit a dentist? Try the Brilliantly Simple Kit ($39) by Smile Brilliant! This kit contains a professional strength whitening gel pen, a High Intensity Ultra-Blue LED activating light, and lip protective trays. This product is so small and easy to carry around (for trips) and it doesn't take rocket science to use! Keep reading for my review.

To Use:
1. Prepare your equipment: Remove the plastic cover from the battery of the LED apparatus (first use). Clip the upper and bottom lip protective trays together to make them easier to wear.
2. Brush your teeth.
3. Apply the whitening gel on your front upper and lower teeth. - it has a twist up mechanism to dispense the product.
4. Apply the protecting trays over your teeth.
5. Switch on the little LED enhancing light.
6. Place in your mouth, the mouthpiece between your lips and lip trays.
7. Wait 20 mins, rinse your mouth and you're done!

Before, After

I have had my teeth professionally whitened twice in the past (at 16 and 22, care of my Dentist Uncle in San Diego, California - if you're in the area let me know so I can tell you where to find him!), so my teeth are hardly yellow. I have been drinking a lot of tea and coffee lately for the caffeine kick, which definitely stained my teeth, but not so much I suppose. I have only used this once and I could see some improvement after, but it might be difficult to appreciate on the photo.

What I love about it...

- It does not require a lot of skill.
- The whole process doesn't seem to hurt my teeth at all - unlike professional teeth whitening with the laser, which did make my teeth feel really sensitive.
- The gel is not as yucky tasting as tooth whitening strips I've tried.
- You can do it at home.
- It only takes 20-30 minutes of your time.

What's not so good about it...

- It is hardly attractive to use - well I suppose it isn't the point of the gadget, it's the results that count! But just make sure you should use it when you expect minimal social interaction... I'd hate for the postman to arrive when I have this on. The glowy blue light is pretty cool though ;D
- It can be a bit fiddly with using the brush applicator to apply product. It's hard to tell when its evenly distributed because it is a clear gel and difficult to visualise.
- It can get messy. I believe I produce an average volume of saliva as a normal human being, but I found it challenging to leave your mouth open for the time it takes to brush the applicator and insert the lip guards.
- Again with the brush applicator - unhygienic! I make sure I wipe the applicator well between uses, but I don't know how effective doing that is.




Overall, I love the idea of this product and I'm happy to recommend it! You can get whiter teeth for just $39!
