SMILE, with Janina!

Hey Guys! 

I don't know about you, but in the words of Buddy the elf 'I just like to Smile, Smiling is my favourite' so i do tend to get a little disheartened when my teeth are looking a little discoloured, i know this is 100% my own fault as i like all the obvious stainers including red wine, coffee and fizzy drinks (and i used to be a smoker, naughty!). I was lucky enough to be sent both the Janina White Ultra white extra strength toothpaste* the the Janina Maxi white whitening strips* - both have worked an absolute TREAT!

I have tried a few different whitening products in the past but have always come across two problems;
1) The way some whitening products feel they are stripping the enamel off your teeth leaving them incredibly sensitive.
2) The horrendous bi carb taste which leaves you feeling like you haven't even brushed your teeth that some products also contain. 

Luckily with the two Janina products i have trialled over the last 3 weeks, i didn't encounter either of these problems. The ultra strength toothpaste contains a combination of natural enzymes which include Bromelaine from Pineapple and Papain from Papaya, these whiten teeth without the use of harsh abrasives which causes the painful sensitive feeling you get with other products. They have 4 different products in their toothpaste range including - Enamel repair, Sensitive, Super Strength and Ultra Strength (so there is a product for everyone!) I have been using this for 3 weeks with my electric toothbrush and find removed surface stains incredibly quick, it tastes like any other toothpaste (minty and fresh) and does not have the horrible bi carb taste. I really like the way it has smoothed and protected my teeth as well as whitening, the above tube retails for £11.50 at boots

Moving on to the Whitening strips, these are an absolute god send! They are fantastic and by the far the best strips I've used to date. You can either use them twice a day for 7 days for quick results or if you don't have the time once a day for 14 days - if i'm being 100% honest i've never used them every day as i simply forget or don't have the time! I normally use them every other day and notice a huge improvement every time i use them. They are hyrdogen -peroxide free so don't damage your teeth and again don't leave them feeling sensitive once removed. Inside the pack they have two strips, you dry your teeth and then pop on your front top and bottom row of teeth, once you've placed the strips on your teeth and waited for 30 minutes you just remove! They are completely hassle and mess free and you can see results almost instantly. The box contains 14 strips and are £19.95 from Boots UK - a great price for a product that actually whitens and protects!

I know I'm a few days late to this, but between the 16th of May and the 16th of June was National Smile Month - this campaign is to create awareness of good oral hygiene. Even though i missed this, i think oral hygiene is incredibly important so it should be National Smile month all year round! My top tips would be to brush twice a day, floss once a day, avoid sugary drinks and visit a dentist every 6 months! 

Have you tried any of the Janina products, which ones did you like?
