Crest 3D White Strips 2 Hour Express Review

1:00 AM

I was very pleased to get the chance to review Crest 3D White strips 2 hour express from Chick Advisor =D

I have been a teeth whitener for years randomly on and off for years and have used Crest whitening strips in the passed so I thought that I would be super amazed by this line of whitening strips. As well I had watched quite a few Youtube reviews that were positive so I had fairly high hopes.


 This kit is really nice because it comes with 4 whitening treatments so you aren't just forking out a bunch of money for one use, it lasts a year so I think it's really good for the price.
I found these very easy to apply, they are very similar to the other Crest strips but they are slightly thicker and extremely sticky! I didn't realize how sticky they were until I was removing them.

There is only 3 here since I used one!
When applying, start with the bottom strip first, then move to top. Once strips are applied you wait 2 hours.
I did have a few times where I thought they were slipping off but they weren't . The strips were slightly annoying to wear for 2 hours straight but I mean its worth it if you get whiter teeth right?
I was able to drink some water and talk fairly okay while having these on.

Once the time is up, I went to pull the strips off but they were so stuck on my teeth I couldn't just slide them off like the other Crest strips I have used. Which is good so you know they are stuck on for the 2 hour time frame.
I had slight pain in ONE tooth but I didn't think too much of it, I brushed my teeth with Sensodyne tooth paste and I was able to drink room temperature water.

The results were really good! I do not have super yellow teeth to begin with but they needed some freshening up and I was happy with the outcome, I was actually a little shocked at first at how white they were!

So at that point I was happy!

Now for the negative =/

I went to sleep that night, I had used the strips in the evening and went to bed a couple hours after using it, I woke up in the WORST teeth pain in my life! I seriously thought my teeth were going to explode and shatter! I really do not have much sensitivity problems ever, the odd time I have some noticeable sensitivity after too much whitening but never ever ever from one use or this excruciating. I have a good pain tolerance but this was brutal. I didn't sleep at all that night, at around 1 am I found myself googling what to do when you have this problem but nothing ever was found. In the am before work I stopped by Shoppers Drug Mart and purchased some Orjel to temporarily numb any pain I could. This did not take away much pain, my 9 hour work day was the worst day I have ever had from this pain. It has been 25 hours since I have used this and I still have a fair amount of pain.

I will never use this product again, I am going to give the left over away to a friend who likes to whiten her teeth and hope she does not run into this problem.

So I DO NOT recommend this to anyone who has sensitivity issues at ALL!!! Save yourself from this pain, it is not worth it.

If you do not have problems with sensitivity I say go for it! If I had no pain I would purchase this product as well recommend it.  

For anyone with sensitivity issues or someone who isn't wanting to blow a bunch of cash on these I would recommend Plus White, see my Review Here.

What is your favorite whitening system?

  1. oh wow that makes me nervous to try it! I've never had any issues with sensitivity, like you, so I think the same would probably happen to me! :/

  2. yick! I have never whitened my teeth. The dentist seriously messed up a couple of teeth of mine so I have to see a specialist in order to get braces. Lee bought some but never used them.. the tray ones i figure those will be messy. I did at one point want to try them but too many people were talking about teeth sensitivity so I didn't... scary though I can't imagine what teeth whitening does to your teeth in the long run :-/

  6. I can't wait to try these even thought I'm a little ashamed to feature P&G crap on my blog... but oh well! And you scared the hell out of me LOL!

    I saw that Plus White gel you reviewed at my local Wal-Mart and I thought of you ahah! It was arounf $8 but I was wondering if it's cruelty-free?

  7. @MissAshDG- I think I would just recommend the regular Crest white strips, they are less intense and I don't have problems with them... It is just crazy how painful teeth pain is lol if that makes sense.

    @TheMissTwist-Ahh that sucks, your teeth look nice and white in your pictures! I agree I can't imagine that whitening a lot with such a strong whitener can be good for any ones teeth =/

    @ThisIsAlx-It should be at your shoppers, I can't remember what isle but probably beside the crest white strips in the tooth paste isle lol I think! I actually used to use baking soda but it tastes so sick! I also get lazy there is so much other stuff going on to remember that too!

    @Osxg33kgirl-omg they are soo much better!!! My friend worked with me that day and she was probably ready to hit me by noon from all my whinning lol. so painful!!!

    @LucyyLou- I don't know why these are so evil but maybe just try the Crest 3d or regular strips, I find they work decent and no pain!!

    @Gaby-I am so interested to see what you think! I hope you have no pain, I know Kandee didn't have any so maybe only a small amount of people react badly to them?
    I also really thought that I read somewhere this was cruelty free but I cannot find it anywhere now =/ I will get back to you on that one because now I am super curious!!

  8. Omigosh Taygan! I want to give you a hug when I read your bad experience on it :(
    I'm sooo glad you wrote your honest review though. I haven't tried this teeth whitening and I don't buy teeth whitening products. I brush with regular Sensodyne toothpaste and use regular mouthwash - none of them are whitening. But a couple of times P&G has sent me one crest white strips sample to try out - P&G has this brand sampler thing you can sign up for free and they send you mini samples once in a while. Anyways the crest strip I used was not this new one you tried, it was a milder version but damn, it was painful on my teeth. Not as bad the pain you described but I'm sure if I used this brand new version of Crest Strips that you tried, I would have just as bad of a pain experience as you did. I have some teeth sensitivity for sure and I honestly don't know how the majority of people can comfortably use Crest White Strips.
    I hope your teeth feel better now. If you're still not 100% back, buy some Sensodyne toothpaste. I use the basic one in Fresh Mint and it works like a charm. I've been using it strictly for a few years now and I haven't changed. Let me know how it goes if you try it x

  9. That sucks that it was so painful afterwards! I've been thinking about trying these out for a while now so I'm SUPER glad I found your review as my teeth have been slightly sensitive after the regular ones!

  12. I’m a bit weary against using Crest because of teeth sensitivity. I get my strips from Stella white instead, they are without peroxide. :)
