Hey there my lovelies,
Welcome back to my Blog!
It’s been a while since I came in here to write a review but I am making an exception today as if you didn’t realise why just by reading the title then I do not know what else to add 🙂
Anyways back to today’s subject and let me ask you something what’s the first thing that you notice about someone before having a conversation with them? Is it their eyes? their hair? their glowing skin? Well for me it’s their smile. It’s the first thing that I see when I look at someone and of course I assume that in turn, it’s likely something that people often notice about me. Therefore it’s no wonder that one of my biggest insecurities just happens to be, you guessed it, my smile.
As a teenager I wished I had the guts to go through the whole braces phase to take care of my bad boys and to straighten them out. If you’re anything like me, it’s likely that you have gone through all of the options to help keep your teeth sparkling white if I cannot have them straight. Of course there’s professional whitening at the dentist, but this can cost a bit.
Then of course there’s the shelves upon shelves in the supermarket of products available, claiming to make your teeth, pearly whites, and I have to say that I tried almost all of them but unfortunately not all of them are all that they’re cracked up to be. Not to mention the carbon toothpaste and powders, but sadly nothing seemed to work. I do have to premise that according to all of my dentist’s my teeth can never become pearly whites but I can easily settle for white.
So what option did I you have left? Well, I was having a sneaky scroll through Instagram a few months back when I noticed that all of the big influencers out there that I follow, including Kylie Jenner herself, all use this one product known as HiSmile. I pretty sure you’ve seen it too. You know that little light up machine that people sit in their mouth and post selfies with? Well, the HiSmile brand boasts about giving you whiter teeth in just 6 days using the machine for as little as 10 minutes and at just the fraction of the cost of a professional job!
Of course my first question was, does it actually work? Well I decided to get one of the little kits when back in January they had 30% discount site wide and test it out for myself and of course review it for you guys so that you know exactly what you’re in for if you feel like purchasing one for yourself.
Before using the teeth whitening kit, I decided to do a bit of reading up on the product, you know to make sure it was all legit and wasn’t going to make my teeth fall out or something gruesome like that. (I PROMISE IT DOESN’T!) After all you can’t always trust everything you see on Instagram. But as it turns out, HiSmile is actually a very highly regarded company!
The company was actually founded by two young Aussies who practically built it from the ground up to being a multi-million dollar business. The product claims to whiten your teeth in just 10 minutes and they guarantee that you will 100% see results.
The HiSmile kit uses a gel and LED light system to gently whiten your teeth while maintaining no damage to the enamel. In just six applications, the product promises to improve your teeth by a minimum of 2 shades. And you can do it all from the comfort of your own home!
After reading all of this I was feeling pretty confident and actually really excited to start my treatment with HiSmile teeth whitening kit!
How to use it:
When you purchase the HiSmile Kit it comes with everything that you need including The LED light and battery, HiSmile gels, mouth tray, instruction manual and even a handy little results chart that helps you assess the difference the treatment makes to your teeth.
Okay now here’s a step by step of how it works.
- Step 1: Gently brush your teeth beforehand with toothpaste to make sure they’re clean
- Step 2: Open the battery compartment on the LED light. Remove the plastic from the battery and reinsert the battery
- Step 3: Attach the mouth tray to the LED light (it should just slide on really easily)
- Step 4: Apply 1/4 of a syringe of whitening gel to the top and 1/4 to the bottom of the mouth tray
- Step 5: Place the mouth tray in your mouth making sure it’s firmly against your teeth, press the button on the LED light (a blue light will turn on) and leave in until the light turns of (about 10 minutes
- Step 6: Rinse your mouth with warm water to rid of any residue. You should also remove the mouth tray and give this a quick rinse too.
- Step 7: Smile!
Then repeat each day for the best results!
As I said before I was feeling pretty excited to give the HiSmile a go and really at this point I was willing to try anything to get rid of some stains and imperfections on my teeth. The picture above shows how my teeth looked on day one,
Judging by the chart in my kit I would say that my teeth were an 11. Grrrr my post ‘problematic’ are side teeth and overall the colour. I really just want to improve the brightness of my entire smile.
I completed my HiSmile treatment over six days. I found that it was easiest to do at night after dinner and just before heading off to bed. I loved how simple it was to apply for the ten minutes while the LED light worked it’s magic. I thought it would be easy to catch up on a few emails and other mini chores all while completing my treatment, however I came to realise that it was not that easy for. I don’t know if I was doing it all wrong which I don’t think however I had an over excessive saliva problem that kept me from doing anything accept holding tissues against my month for the whole 10mins 😦
During the treatment I happily noticed no increase in sensitivity to my teeth throughout the process of whitening or any sort of bad side effects. Although through the six days I did not notice extreme whitening , I did however notice that my smile looked brighter. By day six, my teeth had improved from the starting 11 and I would say I got down to shade 9 on the results chart.
So there you have it, the cold hard tooth (pun intented). The HiSmile isn’t just a fad on Instagram. It’s a legitimate option for people wanting to whiten their teeth and see real results.
I have to say that I am pleasantly impressed with the treatment however I do wish to go white and in fact as I am writing this post I have ordered another gel refill pack! However, having said that and remind you that my teeth can never be pearly whites I would absolutely recommend it to anyone wanting to improve their own smile?

Until next time,
