When I was 18, I finally got braces after years of hating my smile, covering my mouth in every single photo and generally so self-conscious of how I looked. When they came off two years later, I was finally a confident smiler. Now more than ever, I take pride in the appearance of my teeth and try to take the best care of them. When I was asked to review the Janina Ultra White Teeth Whitening Range for National Smile Month (15th May-15th June), I couldn’t say no. Read on to find out how I got on!
The Janina Ultra White Teeth Whitening Range consists of 8 products and I was sent the Sensitive Toothpaste and Maxiwhite Whitening Strips to try. The range has a unique, clinically proven low-abrasive formula thanks to being free from hydrogen peroxide and contains the Whitening Patented Bromaine Complex, a combination of natural fruit enzymes such as pineapple and papaya providing us with the safest option for whiter teeth.

I’ve been using this twice daily since I received it and the difference it has made to my teeth is astonishing. I don’t think I’ll ever use another toothpaste again! It may be a little bit more expensive than my usual toothpaste but it’s worth it. Janina suggest using this twice daily for 3 minutes and for the best results avoid using mouthwash or water to rinse afterwards as this will allow the formulation to work even longer. I found this quite difficult at first as I’ve been using mouthwash religiously since the day I got my braces on 7 years ago but I’m now used to it! I have very sensitive teeth and I’ve also noticed it has reduced significantly since using this toothpaste.

I was so excited to use these as I’ve been wanting to try similar products for ages (such as the Crest 3D Whitening Strips). This is a 7-day system, to be used twice a day. However, I opted to use them over 14 days, once a day as this fitted in better with my routine. Each packet contains a mint-flavoured strip for the upper and lower teeth to be used on dry teeth for 30 minutes after brushing. I found the lower strip more of a pain to work with, it would constantly slip around and take a while to stick, whereas I never had any problems with the upper strip. Upon removal, it would leave a tacky film on the teeth which was the only downside to these strips, I couldn’t stand the feeling. However, a quick brush or rinse soon removed the gel to reveal a whiter smile. I wouldn’t say the results are amazing but my teeth are definitely a lot less yellow and brighter.
You can buy these products and the rest of the Ultra White Range here at Boots. I’m tempted to try the Whitening Trays next!
