Crest 3D White 2 Hour Express Whitestrips - Results + Giveaway

It is the spontaneous experiences and special moments that make life more exciting, but nothing spoils the excitement of a last-minute invitation than a less than dazzling smile. A smile that stands out and helps make a good impression is important in every social occasion, so if you’re feeling your pearly whites just aren’t up to par, now there is a solution that requires almost no planning in a convenient application for whitening without the wait!  
Crest 3D White 2 Hour Express Whitestrips are the latest, ground-breaking additions to the Crest 3D White collection that promise to deliver instant quick results, making every moment a smile moment. 

Last week I posted about Crest 3D White 2 Hour Express Whitestrips and I showed you a "before" shot of my teeth, and now it's time to show you my results!

What makes Crest 3D White 2 Hour Express Whitestrips different from other whitening strips? They contain an innovative thicker ingredient layer, which provides significantly more enamel safe whitening ingredient that whitens for two hours. The advancements in the Whitestrip structure make it the best fitting Whitestrip ever, including optimized notches for a brighter, whiter smile—faster!

  • Tooth stains are removed below the tooth’s surface, for a brighter, whiter smile—faster 
  • The Whitestrips contain a thicker ingredient layer, providing significantly more enamel safe whitening ingredient which whitens in just two hours 
  • The Advanced Seal Technology, which includes optimized notches that wrap and conform to teeth for improved wear and comfort, make it the best fitting Whitestrip ever 
  • Removal of the Whitestrip is easy and clean, with no messy residue

In one box, you get four treatments that will last one year if you use one every three months. Each doses are individually wrapped in foil paper.

I thought the strips were pretty easy to apply to the teeth and I was surprised at how well they stick to the teeth! I was worried they would maybe move or slip because of the saliva but no, they absolutely didn't budge!

The strips applied on my teeth

I won't lie and say the strips are amazingly comfortable to wear during two whole hours - I could talk but it was annoying to always have something stuck on my teeth. I wonder if it's a little like wearing braces? I can't compare the level of comfort with other whitening strips as I have never used some before.

But does it really work? Here are my "before" and "after" shots:



I'm sure you know how hard it is to take two pictures in the exact same lightning. I swear I was in the same room and under the same lightning but oh well! Even in real life, I can't say I really noticed an amazing difference. Honestly, I has super high hopes with this product and I must say I'm a little disappointed. Yes I did notice a slight difference, but I was really expecting super white teeth! My teeth are still yellow even though some stains were removed. Of course, the results will vary from one person to another!

On top of that, I never suffered of any teeth sensivity before but boy, these strips hurt like hell! I was warned by Taygan and Alex, but I thought I would be OK anyway... The two hours went well, then I removed the strips around 4:00 PM but around 7:00 PM, my teeth started aching so bad! I couldn't drink anything and I woke up two times that night because of the pain. By the morning, it was almost gone but still, ouch! I have already gave away the remaining strips because there's no way I will use them again!

Troy Cheerleader Ashton Says Happy Halloween

I love Halloween in general, but on a college campus it is just amazing. Something about All Hallow's Eve makes college chicks dress in some amazingly sexy outfits and strut around town. It really is a magical time of year.

Don't forget to check out our Halloween label to see a ton of other hot college cheerleaders in their Halloween costumes!

Game of the Week - #8 Kansas State v. #9 Oklahoma

I can't remember the last time K-State was ranked ahead of Oklahoma. It probably hasn't been as long as I think, but it's still been awhile. Damn that Ron Prince!

If it weren't for Texas Tech this game would be even bigger, but that's alright. It's still a battle between 2 of the top 3 teams in the best football league in the land (at least for now). I'm not sure how this game is going to go, honestly. I think OU could hang 50 on them. Or the Wildcats could slow things down dramatically and try to win 14-10.

The San Diego Cheerleaders Need Some More Love

I have a feeling there are a bunch of lookers on that squad. I'm gonna have to do some research.

Crest 3D White 2 Hour Express Whitestrips - Before

My teeth are naturally yellow, and to make things worst, I'm addicted to coffee and tea. I wouldn't say I'm complexed by the color of my teeth but let's admit it - having white teeth is always better, isn't it?

I have tried many kinds of whitening products such as toothpaste and mouthwash but nothing really worked, so when I was given the opportunity to try Crest 3D White 2 Hour Express Whitestrips, I jumped at the chance!

So, what life events would you whiten for in just 2 hours with the Crest 3D White 2 Hour Express, you ask? Well, I have a couple of important things coming up: a new job, a party for the launch of some new Marcelle and Annabelle products and a Halloween party. I thought these events were a great opportunity to look my best!

I am currently wearing the strips as I'm typing this post, so I will leave you with a "before" shot of my teeth and I will report back in a few days with the results... and a little surprise for you!

Yuck, I know!
