Smile Brilliant Teeth Whitening

Claudia Di Capua

Finally tried out a tooth whitening kit and to say the least, I'm pretty impressed! Checkout what's included, how to use it, testimonials, and the best of all, a GIVEAWAY! That's right. Win the entire kit! Find those details at the bottom of this post. 

This whitening kit comes with EVERYTHING you'll need to make your little pearlies even brighter! Most of the time, molds like this will cost you hundreds of dollars at a dentists office, but Smile Brilliant has made it more accessible. An entire kit including the final molds will only cost about $140 (GO TO BOTTOM FOR GIVEAWAY DETAILS)! 

Step 1:

Grab one case of the Catalyst Paste and one case of the Base Paste (one blue and one white).

Step 3:

Place the light blue combo on the piece the tray that looks like a mouth guard. Put this in your mouth and bite down to get a mold of your top teeth. Hold there for 2 minutes! Repeat steps 1-3 for the bottom mold. 

Step 5:

My teeth are a little sensitive due to being a swimmer for my whole life, so I used the desensitizing gel for 20 minutes prior to the actual whitening gel. Apply this to the molds if you'd like to use it!

Before

Step 2:

Combine pastes until it has a light blue color. Make sure to move quickly because it will activate the hardening once you mix them!

Step 4:

Ahhh, the final product! After mailing your molds back to Smile Brilliant, they create the whitening molds that are reusable! They are then mailed back to you after a week or so and come with a cute case. 

Step 6:

Once you're done with the desensitizing gel, rinse off your molds, then apply the whitening gel. Keep that in your mouth for another 20 minutes. The desensitizing gel should help with any discomfort you might have had. 

After

Major Takeaways

As you can see, there is a dramatic difference between the first day and the fifth day! The whitening kit helped to enhance the brightness and obviously whiteness over the course of a week. It managed to eliminate any stains that may have accumulated over the years. The price is a bargain compared to buying it with a dentist and you are getting the exact same quality with a product that is but to fit you! If you need more proof, check out other users testimonials HERE and learn more about the brand HERE.

I knew I had to try this product out, so I collaborated with the Muddy Body team! My University has finals this week, so I wanted to try out my Detox mask before my exams came around. Find the steps on how to use this product to get the most out of it and the effects it had on my skin below! Use code CLAUDIA10 to get 10% off your next Muddy Body order.


Before you begin, make sure you have a small bowl, a spoon and a cup filled with about a 1/2 inch of water on hand!

Step 1:

Pour a spoonful of your mask mix into your small bowl. It's ok if this looks like more than what you need for your face. I used the excess mask I had and put it on the tops of my hands!

Step 2:

Next, pour a few drops of water into the bowl containing your mask to activate the it. You can also use other liquids like rose water, apple cider vinegar or green tea for added benefits!

Step 4:

Once you've combined both the water and mask powder, stir them together until you achieve a smooth and "muddy" consistency using the special face mask application brush. 

Step 5:

Apply and have fun with it! Naturally, I drew a mustache and heart on my face, but I eventually got to the rest of it :). Make sure to evenly apply the mask on your face. Leave it on for about 10-15 minutes (selfies and snapchats are a must). This is definitely a fun thing to do with your friends, boyfriend, girlfriend or family!

When the mask dries on your skin it should look like drying clay. It also resembled somewhat of a camo print on my skin!

Step 6:

Once the mask dries or you've waited 10-15 minutes, rinse off the mask with warm water and pat your skin dry. For the best results use the mask 1-2 times a week. It will keep your skin feeling soft and clear!

The impact of the detox mask was instantaneous. My face felt smoother and my skin felt tighter in the hours after I took it off. I took this picture the morning after using the mask and I noticed that I had almost no redness whatsoever. I normally have pink cheeks and some redness around my nose, but this mask helped to reduce that substantially as well as keep my skin super soft! 

Have I convinced you to get muddy yet?! Try it out for yourself! Truly, I only post about products and items that I really feel are beneficial and do what they say they can do. This mask as well as my refresh mask are definitely now part of my beauty regimen. Take care of your skin, guys! This product can definitely help you do that!
