Luster NOW! Instant Whitening Toothpaste Review

Just recently I went to CVS to do some much needed couponing. I had a high-value coupon for Crest White Strips and they happened to also be on sale. I thought I could get them for a decent price...until I saw that even WITH the sales/coupons, they were 30 dollars! FOR STRIPS THAT YOU STICK ON YOUR TEETH! I mean, really! I remember vividly that they were only about $19.99 when they first came out. So why are they so expensive now?

Needless to say, I put them back on the shelf and put the coupon on the shelf too in case someone wanted to use it. There was no way I was paying that kind of money for a temporarily brighter smile.

But then, something awesome happened. Influenster sent me a "Something Blue" voxbox, and inside was this neat box:

I thought, "What luck!! A whitening toothpaste!" But I was a little skeptical. Luster Now! toothpaste claims to have instant whitening results. After only ONE brushing! I was wondering how that was possible, but I knew it couldn't hurt to give it a try. Before I let you in on how it worked for me, let's go over what this product actually IS and what it offers.

- Contains Bluverite, a proprietary formula that creates the optical effect of whiter teeth
-Whitens teeth after just one brushing-- results last for hours
- Removes surface and deep stains with daily use
-Safe on enamel and dental restorations

Hmm. Ok. So basically this toothpaste works "immediately" the way a blue-toned red lipstick works to whiten your smile. The good thing is that it also removes stains with daily use. You have the option of using it daily, or only using it when you need that "instant boost" to the color of your teeth.

It's a decent sized tube so with daily use, I still think it would last quite awhile.
While I unfortunately did not take before and after pictures of my teeth, I can tell you that this stuff DOES work immediately. I wouldn't say that it takes your teeth from coffee-stained yellow (like mine) to pearly white in just one brush, but it definitely makes them look whiter and takes away that yellow tinge almost immediately. Pair it with a blue-toned lipstick and you've got a really white smile!

I have also read many reviews saying that after the first week of use your teeth generally look more white and healthier. I have been using it for 3 days and I am very happy with the results, so I'm looking forward to seeing what my teeth look like after a week!

Overall, if you're looking for a quick fix, this is a great solution. Going on a date tomorrow night and don't have time for a whitening kit? Use this stuff and it really will make a huge difference!
