What is the product?
Spotlight teeth whitening strips are an at home teeth whitening kit. There are 14 packets inside, which is two weeks supply. In each packet there are two strips - one for your top teeth and one for your bottom teeth. The strips are worn daily for one hour, and you do this for two weeks.
How does it work?
Spotlight teeth whitening strips are the only teeth whitening strips in Europe that contain hydrogen peroxide which is a teeth whitening agent. Hydrogen peroxide whitens our teeth by breaking down stains such as tea and red wine, as well as penetrating and brightening the top layer of enamel.
When ready to use, you tear open the packet, take out the strips and dry your teeth. Stick the bottom strip on first, then the top, and leave them on for one hour. After removing the strips, wash away any excess and repeat every day for two weeks.
Who made it?
Spotlight was created by two Irish dentists, Doctors Lisa and Vanessa Creaven in Quay Dental, Galway who really know their stuff!
My teeth have always been something I was never too confident about. I’d always seen and been tempted by all those Groupon offers of teeth whitening, but I was weary that one bargain session would lead into another ten before I got close to erasing the twenty years of tea I was advertising! So, I decided to try Spotlight with the aim of having a confident smile.. To be honest, I was expecting one of two things – hypersensitivity resulting in me not being able to use them, or, simply no change whatsoever. It ended up being quite the contrary.
From my very first application of the strips I was so surprised with how easy they were to use. There was even one day I popped into Tesco for a few bits with the strips on, they are so noninvasive. I was also concerned with my teeth being too sensitive to withstand them but this was not the case. Although I was aware there was something on my teeth, that was it, there were no sensitivity issues whatsoever.
When I took the strips off on day one, I honestly could not believe it. After only one hour my teeth were visibly whiter. My ‘before’ picture does have a yellowish tint to it naturally due to the lighting in my room, but my lack of pearliness is clear. The second image shows the difference in one hour after the first application. Quite impressive!
Needless to say I was excited to see the results after the two weeks. A fortnight later, it was our honeymoon, and as you can see I could not stop showing over my spotlight smile!
It is about three months now since I first used the strips and I am starting to see a slight loss of dazzle but still a lot better than what they were originally. Upon reading the FAQs online it says, “ the best way you can keep your teeth nice and white is to complete one full two week course, and then top them up every 3 months with generally 5 days worth.”
At €39.95 for the pack, Spotlight are a lot better value and easier to use than any other teeth whitening kits or methods I’ve seen. As well as that, the results are instant! As a top up of five days every three months is suggested, that means the second time you buy it, the strips will do for almost your next three top ups!
I have been raving about Spotlight teeth whitening strips since I discovered them, especially to anyone I know getting married soon. There is no better photo prop than a dazzling smile, so get wedding ready!. I’ve ordered my second box ordered already!
