For those of you who read my blog you will know I tried the Brilliant 1 Week Tooth Whitening Kit and said I would be back in a week – hmm I’m sorry about that. I have had the images of my teeth looking at me on my desktop of my MacBook for a while now and just haven’t gotten around to posting the final review and thoughts as I’ve been a bit back logged. Still here is it my thoughts and findings on the tooth whitening kit and whether I recommend it.
Below you will see a picture of my teeth before trying the Brilliant kit, I am a heavy coffee drinker. I can’t live without caffeine and have quite stained teeth because of it even though I do brush with a whitening toothpaste and use a whitening mouthwash. However while using this kit I only used the items in the kit and did not use my usual toothpaste or mouthwash.

After using Brilliant 1 Week Tooth Whitening Kit for 1 week
I will be honest and say the kit can be used twice a day; I found this a bit of a faff and also it made my teeth too sensitive and made them ache. So I only used the kit twice a day for the first 2 days and then daily after that. I did notice it whitened my teeth a little, but not that much. My teeth are heavy stained and my front top left tooth is also a veneer and this colour won’t change as its matched to my teeth already.
When I mentioned to a friend I had been trying this she couldn’t notice any difference. Not that I would expect her too as I didn’t notice much either but I thought I’d see if she could. I did however notice that the plaque build up between my teeth definitely went a and was lighter – so the kit did do something.
As I mentioned when I first bought the product it was only £5.59 and I bought it in Superdrug, I wasn’t expecting miracles and if I did see any difference it would be good. Well, there was a minimal difference. So maybe for people who don’t have as stained teeth as me and can use the product twice a day this would be good. I am sure they would see more difference than me. However I don’t feel it was amazing and wouldn’t buy the product again.
I am going to look about and see if I can find another reasonably priced teeth whitening system and try that and work my way through them to see what works and for what budget. If anyone has any recommendations of kits I would love to hear them!
Lots of Love,
