My first experience of teeth whitening (Part One)

RapidWhite Travel Tooth Whitening Pen, 2x3ml.

Please excuse the bedraggled packaging photograph, but I didn't actually pay for this item. Last week I was helping my sister sort through some of her stuff for a bootsale, ebay etc and we came across this. She had bought it with every intention to use it but said I could have it as I had already been moaning about the fact that I'd ordered this product at the beginning of June on a couple of recommendations and it just never arrived. After several emails back and forth and the supplier being extremely unhelpful and not answering my questions, my money eventually got refunded and I remained tooth whitener-less.

I can't currently find this exact item on the Boots website though this doesn't mean you won't be able to find it in store. If I have a good experience with RapidWhite then I'd be keen to try their other treatments, after all this is just a travel pen.

The course is a week long, with applications twice daily. I'm commiting to this so check back next Sunday for my results!
Below is my smile today, so we can compare next week to see whether this stuff works! I hope it does but I hope there aren't any negative side effects...sensitivity is not my friend!


  1. the chart is very handy! cant wait to see how this works out for you.
    for the sensitivity, i recommend sensodyne pronamel toothpaste, it works for my little bro.

    good luck emily!

  2. i want to whiten my teethbadly! i have a gel thing but i dont think it does jack s@*t hehe x

  3. I've tried that 5 minute whitening gel. It kind of worked but not enough to get it white. Plus it was painful! Hopefully RapidWhite is a much better product.

  4. oooo i cant wait to see how you get on with this. i really want my teeth whitened but don't want that big plastic thing in my mouth! haha

  5. oh wow looks amazing! I can't wait to see if it will work out well ;)

  6. It surely is exciting to use a product for the first time. In the market today, there are many products that promise that they can whiten teeth. But be warned, they have different chemical ingredients that can sometime not suitable for all types of teeth. I hope this one can do what it said it does to whiten teeth. Keep us posted on the outcome of your trial.

  7. That is right, Marlena. It is best to check with your dentist first before you try any dental products. As much you want to try all kinds of things, a professional’s advice is needed to help you prevent inflicting harm on your teeth and gums. [Jerri Franceschi]

  9. Have you checked with your dentist about this teeth whitening product? Well, it is good to know that teeth whitening products are easily available for us to use. But, as people here said, your dentist’s advice would be great to prevent any complications. [Eduardo Tomlin]

  10. Well well, good post, but I totally agree with Eduardo Tomlin comment, one must get verified with their dentist before use any products.

  11. A tip if you are looking for another product is to try out Stella white strips. Their strips worked great for me :)

  12. Hope it does wonders for you. Anyways, I certainly agree to some of you here. The best thing to do first is to consult your dentist. When it comes to teeth whitening, I do not trust whitening pens, gels or any other kits that’s readily available in the market. Still, your cosmetic dentist knows what’s best for your teeth.
