The iconic teeth-whitening dummy that celebrities wear in the adverts. Is it all it’s cracked up to be? I tried it for a month. Here the HiSmile review.
The £60 HiSmile beginners’ kit comes with the mouthpiece and attaching device, which lights up blue and times you for 10 minutes before beeping to signify you’ve finished. It also contains 3 gels – a total of 6 uses.
The gels get to work on your teeth, and the blue light emitted from the device supposedly accelerates its work. However, that seems more of a marketing gimmick.
Does It Work? HiSmile Review
You may be wondering, does HiSmile work? The answer is: yes. But: it does not work miracles. It wouldn’t turn black to white. Instead, it’ll colour your teeth a couple shades lighter on the above chart.
Whether it’s worth it for you depends on your disposable income and how much you care about the appearance of your smile.
Once you’ve got your kit and are onto the gels, whitening your teeth becomes more affordable. 3 refill gels will set you back £20 – each one containing 9ml and 2 uses. But when you think about it, is £20 for 9ml reasonable?
This is where HiSmile is worth the money. It keeps your teeth topped up for a more affordable amount.
Teeth Whitening Pen
The £26 teeth whitening pen is a stronger formula than is in the gel kit. It’s intended for one or two darker/stained teeth, to brighten them to the shade of your other teeth.
The whitening pen did work slightly, but the liquid feels quite strong to me, so I’d keep one and only use it occasionally.
Coconut Oil Mouthwash
The mouthwash features coconut oil, taking inspiration from the ancient method of oil pulling. However, you need to use coconut oil for at least 20 minutes for that to work, not just 2.
So, I’d say this is an average mouthwash, and definitely not worth the premium price.
