Crest 3D White Professional Effects Whitestrips

I recently received a box of Crest 3d White Intensive Professional Effects Teeth Whitening Strips 7 Count from Influenster.  (Not a member of Influenster?  Check out my posts here and here to learn more!)

I received my box of whitestrips several weeks ago.  I meant to use them right away but they "disappeared."  Turns out my husband, who is a whitestrip fanatic, stole them!  He used to use whitestrips all the time, but after we moved away from "the coupon mecca" (we lived in an area with the trifecta - Walgreens, CVS and Rite Aid) we haven't bought them as often.  Naturally, being a boy, he managed to throw the box away before I could take a picture of it, so here is the product image from Amazon:

What They Say:
Over time, your teeth yellow due to everyday activities and indulgences. While precautions can be taken, if you are not actively whitening your smile, you are yellowing it.
  • A whiter smile after just 3 days
  • Full results in 20 days
  • Professional-level results at a fraction of the cost vs. light & laser systems
  • Revolutionary Advanced Seal technology for no-slip whitening
  • New improved lower strip for more whitening coverage

What My Husband Says:

As a "connoisseur" of white strips, my husband was impressed with how easy to whitestrips were to apply.  The printed directions on the back of the strip were simple and to follow.  Previous strips he has used have only had pictures with notches.  With Crest 3D Instensive Professional Effects it was easy to tell which strip went on the top and which strip went on the bottom.  The top one is much larger!  They were very easily to apply, it only took about 15 seconds and didn't even have to re-position them.  Wore them for one hour even though the directions said two

Those were the things he liked about them.  However, there were a few things he didn't like.  He said they were "gooeyer" than other stirps, almost like a gel.  Also the taste wasn't the best, he thought they could stand to be more minty.  Being a man, he completed disregarding the instructions and ONLY WORE THEM FOR AN HOUR.  He thought he could use them once and look like the Dentastix dogs:

He did not notice a significant difference (duh!  He didn't follow the directions) and says he would not use them again because "they took too much time."  Sigh.  This is why Crest sent the whitestrips to me and not him!

What I Say:

I have only used whitestrips a few times in the past, and hated every one of them.  I found these super easy to apply.  My favorite part was once they were on, they didn't move!  I have only worn them once so far (since it took me three weeks to figure out where they went) but I definitely plan on finishing the box!
