To me a smile means so much. On one hand it's just a little gesture, you're just being polite. But on the other hand it can mean so much to someone if you just smile to them. Somethimes I'm cranky and nothing seems to go right, at that point when someone I don't know smiles at me I'm like "Well it's not all that bad" and I instantly feel better. A smile is also a big way of expressing yourself. A smile is something people instantly see. It shows how well you take care of yourself and it's your trademark. I hope to encourage you to just smile! It's not hard and it can lift you and other people up. Wear your smile with confidence! And gain confidence by having a bright smile! I actually even went to the dentist to shoot this video haha.

First up: the tooth paste that will supposedly make your teeth one shade whiter in one week. I like that thought! I've had braces for a couple years and I take great care of my teeth to keep them how they are. As you can see I've used quite a lot of it already because I've been using it for about 2/3 weeks.
The toothpaste contains little whitening crystals that get rid of the little spots on your teeth. I really like the taste of the tooth paste. It's real peppermint instead of spearmint or something else that a tooth paste sometimes tastes like, which I don't like at all. Just give me the peppermint :) The tooth paste costs €3,99 which is a decent price for me.
Colgate Max White One Tooth brush
You already had a little preview of the tooth brush on the previous picture, but here you can see what's special about it. The brush has so called whitening cups that brush your teeth a little harder and better. I really feel it while brushing and I don't know if it's just me but I feel like my teeth are cleaner than usual.
The back of the brush has a rubber tongue "scraper." I usually use the regular hairs of the brush for scraping my teeth and cheeks but I have to admit that this feels a little less harsh and works fine. The tooth brush costs €3,79.
Colgate Max White One Mouth water
Then there's the mouth water which has the same taste as the tooth paste. A lot of mouth waters make it close to impossible to keep them in your mouth for the recommended time, but this one does the job. It's fresh but not eye-popping and cheek-explosing fresh so I like that!
It's bright blue and somehow that always makes me think of a bright sunny ocean. Nice little detail. The mouth water costs €6,49.
Sensitive teethMy teeth are quite sensitive so I actually expected my teeth to respond badly to these products but they surprisingly didn't at all! I didn't notice any pain or sensitivity.
ResultThis is a before and after with about 2/3 weeks between it. The first picture doesn't look as good as the second (not looking at the shade of my teeth). Judge for yourselves.
Colgate makes me smile!
My teeth feel really clean after using the products and stay like that for a longer time than usual. I think it's a combination of the whitening crystals in the tooth paste and the whitening cups in the tooth brush. Then the mouth water gets rid of bacteria so people won't faint when they come near you. I didn't notice any big differences in the colour of my teeth but I do feel like they have whitened a little. These products are not for an instant white smile, but I don't think you should want that either and it's not good for your teeth at all. I will definitely use these products up and I'm thinking about buying them again. I'm still a little suspicous about whitening products and I want to warn you for them too because they can have severe consequences for your teeth if you don't do it right. Take a good look at the product and the ingrediënts before using a whitening product.

- The ingredients aren't natural at all, but that's not what you're going for when you're using whitening products.
