Have you brushed your teeth already!!?

Good morning sunshine!! *SMILEZ*

Yup! The first thing I do in the morning to smile at the mirror! There was a saying, smile at the mirror when you wake up and you will have a good day ahead!! …. ok I admit, the first thing I would do in the morning is not to smile at the mirror (maybe that explain why I seldom had a good day) but to HIT SNOOZE on my phone’s alarm and continue rolling in bed – for at least 30 minutes! LOL >_< I’m such a lazy worm I know.. LOL! Though lazy, I still brush my teeth every morning (ok, who doesn’t?) to achieve my bright smile!

With that, I’m gonna share with you today my new toothpaste!

*DRUMROLL*

20140407-231549.jpg

Darlie ‘s NEW Charcoal Clean Fluoride Toothpaste! It contains natural bamboo charcoal molecules which absorb dirt and deep clean the mouth. Combine with SWA whitening agent which delivers effective whitening result, bringing dual whitening benefits.

Darlie

This little one is contains natural bamboo charcoal molecules effectively absorb dirt and deeply clean your mouth. That means.. This toothpaste can deeply clean oral cavity (removes more surface stains than regular anti-cavity toothpaste, for deep-cleaning action) and removes surface stains to whiten teeth naturally (with correct brushing method)

Not only that, it is clinical proven effectively whiten your teeth in 14 days. Speedy Whitening Agent (SWA) removes yellowish stains, fluoride for healthy teeth and natural green bamboo aroma for fresher breath.

Now I am excited to try it out!!!! Before that, pardon my sooooooo homely look! I’m preparing to jump onto my bed anytime already actually!!

20140407-231639.jpg 20140407-231658.jpg

(I can’t stop laughing at my stupid face!! I wanted to imitated some extreme sweetie pie look but ended up comical!! Total failure!! OMG~!! Hope it makes your day man!!)

20140407-231720.jpg 20140407-231729.jpg

So here it is.. the toothpaste! It ain’t as disgusting as some charcoal black bread out there.. The “charcoal” part is greyish so still within my acceptable level! At least I won’t worry my teeth will turn BLACK after brushing… (phew, guess i think too much!)

20140407-231742.jpg

So now, let’s start brushing!!

First impression? Like I mention earlier, good thing is, it’s not a BLACK toothpaste! That makes my feel safer to use it to brush my teeth!

20140407-231748.jpg

Then it’s the scent.. It’s ain’t as menthol or minty as I thought yet it still keeps my breath fresh! The fact I don’t really like Darlie toothpaste is because it gets too minty when I brush my teeth for too long ( I can’t take the “heat”!) However, I’m totally fine with Charcoal Clean toothpaste scent. It taste (or rather smell) a bit like sweet bubblegum scent. Hahaha! And foam forms quite quickly. So make sure you don’t over-squeeze too much toothpaste!! LOL!!

*see below image at your own risk!!* LOL!! (GROSSSS~)

20140407-231755.jpg

Did I also mention another reason why I don’t like using Darlie? Because my teeth seems to get dirtier (more yellowish) each time I use it.. IDK why it just doesn’t seems to get whiter! But I’ve been using this toothpaste for 3 days already and totally no problem with it!! That kinda motivates me to switch to Darlie! Hahahaha!

Still not sure which is the one you want?? Well… Hopefully the comparison chart at the end of this post well helps you!! As for now… Let see how much the Advance Vivid can whiten my teeth!

20131116-225411.jpg

Advance Vivid comes in 14 pack – 14 days treatment! Instruction is also in the box! Hence no worry if are a first timer! Actually even if no instruction given, you can google for it! Everyone is raving about it.. (^_^) Probably I can just show you the “instruction” here (go straight to 3:15 if you just want the instructions)??

20131116-225416.jpg 20131117-001203.jpg

See.. Here’s my 14 pack and instruction! Each pack comes in a sheet like below, a strip for upper teeth and a curvy strip for lower teeth!

20131117-001210.jpg

The tooth whitening gel (contain peroxide) is at where the sticky part is..Peel off with care as it’s thin and quite flimsy and avoid having the strip sticking together..

WARNING: Continue if you can take it! The pics are gonna be gross and… *gulp* Skip this post if you think you are gonna faint after seeing my yellow teeth!! I swear I have very yellow teeth!

20131116-225428.jpg

So here… This is my Day 1 pic! Sorry! It was after I put on the lower strip then I realize I forgot to snap a “before” pic!! So better than nothing, here’s a half-before pic!

20131116-225443.jpg

I read a few post saying that they felt that sensitive sensation when applying the strips. Hence I prepared myself for that “nightmare” ( I have sensitive teeth!). Other then that i was worried that I will not dare to swallow my saliva when I’m on these strip (I had another teeth whitening product that is so gross that I hardly use them)!

Apparently, these whitening strips are amazing! Put is on easily, like sticker! No sensitive sensation!! Swallow saliva? Of course! Even drinking water is no problem!! It is a totally easy 30 minutes process!!

20131116-225458.jpg

20131116-225509.jpg

Yup!! I’m very happy with my Day 1 result! I achieve whiter (partly) teeth effortlessly!! This made me wanna do it again on Day 2!!

20131116-225524.jpg

Just like Day 1, everything was fine!! Easy 30 minutes! In fact, because I was doing some work, I had them on for almost 45 minutes! OoPs!

20131116-225531.jpg

Day 3? I tried putting on the strip nearer to my gums to see if I will get the sensitive sensation.. Hmm.. With the strip nearer to my gums, I can indeed feel the sensitive sensation but it ain’t that crazy pain. Just keep your mind on other stuff and you will forget about the pain.

20131117-002357.jpg

Results seems quite stagnant already huh? Not really..! From what I see, I can tell that some teeth did gets whiter. Now I can’t wait for the 14th day to see a whiter set of teeth!!!

I will update this post again (to show you the 14th day result!) when I’m done with the whole treatment!! If you already wanna try one set yourself but don’t know which one should you be getting, below is a chart that’s pretty helpful!!

Comparison1

I suppose if you want are serious about teeth whitening and want a speedy result, “Intensive Professional Effect” should be the one for you! If you have sensitive teeth, you might one to consider “Gentle Routine”. Although the treatment is long but whiter teeth is still possible!

Comparison2

I will update this post again so…. stay tune for my FINAL RESULT!! YEAHHHHH!!

Update: 16 Feb 2014

*DRUMROLLLLLLL* RESULT TIME!!

Firstly, sorry for the SUPER LATE update!! Been SOO tight up!

So I had stopped at day 3 ya?? Now I’ll show you the rest….

IMG_7922

IMG_7963

IMG_7982

…… Actually there’s not much the rest… I only shoot till “day 6” because the result were stagnant after then… IMO, results indeed varies! 😦 My yellow teeth got better slightly as compared to the first day but ain’t any closer to the pearlie white teeth! So if you are lookng forward to those ads white teeth, you need to be more hardworking! BRUSH YOUR TEETH after every meal please!!

Perhaps I can consider doing the LED treatment – another lazy way?? Geez!
