Thoughts: When I first read the email, I was intrigued. I have tried so many different at home teeth whitening products and have never seen any improvements. My teeth is as yellow as it could be. I'm not too sure why it's so yellow but it's pretty nasty. I decided to try this product. It also sounded easy to use.
Here's a closer look at the opening.
Here's a closer look at the AM toothpaste.
Here's a closer look at the PM toothpaste.

Now for my overall opinion... First of all, there's a slight scent while using the AM toothpaste. Since it's so light, I hardly notice the scent. It just feels refreshing and smells like other toothpastes I have used. The PM toothpaste I have not noticed any scent while using. I just sniffed both products, and the AM toothpaste smells like mint. There's no scent whatsoever with the PM toothpaste. Secondly, the packaging is nice. It looks like any toothpaste out in the market. It comes in a tube and you squeeze the amount onto a toothbrush. For this reason, you have full control of the quantity you squeeze. With that said, it's well-made and sturdy. It's made out of metal-like plastic. The top is also sturdy. You can feel a tight seal, as well as, a clicking noise when you open and close. I cannot see it open or break unless you are rough with the packaging. For this reason, it's travel-friendly. It's easy to throw in your purse and bag. Only thing is with other toothpastes, you only need to carry one. This you need to carry both AM and PM. Third, the consistency is medium. It looks and feels like other toothpastes. It's not thin that it runs everywhere. It's also not thick that it's hard to work with. It's a good consistency. With that said, it's easy to use. I just squeeze the amount onto the toothbrush and wet it with water. I'm not 100% sure if it's okay to wet with water or not. I've been doing this all of my life that it's became a habit. This is the part I found most interesting. The AM toothpaste foams up while brushing my teeth. I found this fun and to be honest, I brush longer than I normally do. Okay, I might just be weird on this. The PM toothpaste does not foam up. It feels exactly like most toothpastes in the market except slightly grittier. It's not by much, but it's to prepare for overnight cleansing while sleeping. Fourth and going back to why I decided to try this product. One I don't want to spend money to get it professional whiten. It can be expensive and I heard it's not great for the teeth. That I cannot be sure. For this reason, I've been using at home teeth whitening systems. It's cheaper but I'm sure the results isn't as great as getting it professional done. There are many at home products out in the market. There's one where you use a tray and fill with a gel-like consistency. Then you leave it in your mouth for longer than thirty minutes. There's another with a strip and you wait for some time. Basically from my experience it's more work than needed. So when this came into my life, I found it the most easiest teeth whitening system. Everyone brushes their teeth mornings and at nights. There's nothing more to it than using a toothpaste. Yes, it's very similar to other toothpastes in the market. The thing that convinced me is that this product uses two types of toothpastes. The morning is to clean and freshen your breath. The night one is to whiten and to work while sleeping. I think it's a genius idea for such a simple product. I love it! Lastly and now that I've been using it for some time, I noticed my teeth is slightly whiter. When I wear certain lip products, the yellowness of the teeth shows through. It still shows but not as much as before. I actually like looking at my teeth compared to the past now that it's slightly whiter. With time, the teeth will improve. The results are not overnight but you get what you pay for. I've only used a quarter of the product. I cannot wait when I'm finished with both toothpastes. I'm so thankful this came into my life.
