"A while back you posted about a load of teeth whitening kits/toothpastes you bought from B&M, did they work? xxx"
....well, in a nutshell, no not really!
Like many people, I long to have whiter teeth, however daily habits like smoking, Starbucks, tea, combined with my naturally off-white teeth, have made this all but a dream- or a lot of saving to get it done professionally.
Anyway, over recent months I have tried a few 'whitening' toothpastes, and even tooth paints (!) such as the following;
However, none of them have really made much difference.
I had considered trying out one of the more expensive whitening kits, however after watching a re-run of a Gok Wan show, on which they were tested, I decided not to bother.
One time, when talking to my Grandma about this, she told me about a French toothpaste called Email Diamant.
-It was what my Grandad used to swear by when he was going on cruises or fancy evenings out to make his teeth appear whiter.
This toothpaste is to be used no different to any regular toothpaste and essentially works by staining the gums red, which make your teeth appear whiter, as opposed to working harshly on the teeth to bleach them.
(please try to ignore my horrid teeth!)
As you can see, the toothpaste tints not only your gums but also your lips- if you're as messy as I am... leaving your teeth appearing brighter/whiter!
During a bit of research, I have also read, that the same can be achieved by adding a tiny dash of red food colouring to your regular toothpaste, however, this I am yet to try. If anyone does experiment, please let me know how you get on!
I would say this is definitely the most effective 'teeth whitening' toothpaste I have used to far that doesn't cost the earth!
So here it is, Email Diamant, I salute you!
