Spotlight Teeth Whitening

A couple of weeks ago I headed into London to attend the UK launch of Spotlight Teeth Whitening Strips. The product has been created by Dr Lisa and Dr Vanessa Craven who were also there to answer any questions and demonstrate how the whitening strips worked.

I first started using whitening strips about five years ago. I used to buy Crest strips from America but they became increasingly difficult to find (and are now banned in the UK) and made my teeth incredibly sensitive whenever I used them. However, I liked how the product worked. So many teeth whitening products that I've looked at online look like so much off a faff with syringes, moulds, trays and an instruction list as long as my arm! 

I've seen a lot of different whitening strips pop up over the last few years on social media but their reviews are always mixed and although they are a lot cheaper to buy than getting your teeth cosmetically whitened, I didn't want to spend the money on something that wasn't guaranteed to work. At the event, it was explained to me that Spotlight strips contain Hydrogen Peroxide which is what effectively whitens teeth, many of the other strips I'd been looking at didn't contain any at all. Along with this, Spotlight also sells a whitening toothpaste which is designed to enhance and maintain the results of your teeth whitening.


I'm now halfway through my box of teeth whitening strips and I have to say that I'm really quite impressed. I could see results almost immediately and I don't have any of the sensitivity that I used to get with Crest. The strips are designed to be applied for one hour which at first seemed a long time to me but I've been putting them on whilst I've been doing other things and haven't really noticed they're there. Overall, I would definitely repurchase these (especially now that they're available to buy at Boots) as I think that they are great value for the results they give.

Have you tried Spotlight teeth whitening products before?

  3. this product looks really well!

  4. Wow, I'm curious as to why they're banned in the UK! In the states, we allow so much garbage in our products, you'd be disturbed to know what's in some of the products sold, it's ridiculous. At least other countries, such as the UK care enough about their citizens to intervene on their behalf. Anyway, this system sounds wonderful! I'm looking for a natural method to whiten mine, since I'm nursing, I have to be extremely cautious with which products I use. Thanks so much for sharing, beauty, and I hope you're having a great week so far!



  5. Sounds like you got good results. Like Jalisa I'd be interested to know why they are banned.
