In March I was contacted by the lovely Rhiannon to try out a new whitening toothpaste by Janina (which you can read about here) luckily I was also sent a second product from Janina to try, the Janina Ultra White Maxiwhite Professional Teeth Whitening Pre-Filled Trays…and breath…a 5 day teeth whitening system.
As I mentioned in the Janina Ultra White 24K Gold Whitening Toothpaste* review, I’m no stranger to teeth whitening products, and with my upcoming birthday the idea of having sparkly white teeth for the day was what compelled me to accept the invitation to give these new products a go. Janina have already won awards for their previous teeth whitening products inc Pure Beauty Awards 2016 Highly Commended Winner for Best New Dental Product with their Activated Charcoal Toothpaste and Pure Beauty Awards 2017 Bronze Winner for Best New Oral Beauty Product with their Charcoal & Clay Teeth Whitening Powder.

I started the teeth whitening system 5 days before my birthday, I had already been using the Janina Ultra White 24K Gold Whitening Toothpaste for 2 weeks and had already seen a difference in my teeth looking slightly whiter and brighter, so I was excited to see how much of a difference these would make. These tray’s target the front teeth-to the incisors (canine’s), my yellowness is more prominent on the incisor’s towards the back of my teeth so I was excited to see how much these would whiten those spots.
The trays come in pairs, upper and lower, and easily slot against the teeth, I would recommend placing the back of the trays against the back of your teeth to get as much product as possible against the front of your teeth otherwise you end up with only half of your teeth looking whiter and the excess product shooting up the back of the trays.
I left these in place for 35 minute’s to achieve the best whitening result, they’re super comfortable in the mouth, they’re not bulky in any way, the product itself has a lovely fresh minty taste to it too. I used these every morning after brushing my teeth whilst applying my skincare routine and then my makeup avoiding the lip products until I had removed the trays.
Before – Using only the toothpaste
Unlike the toothpaste the results of these were instant, they leave your front teeth so much more whiter, they do initially look patchy from where product has built up in area’s but that patchiness doesn’t last long, and isn’t unusual for whitening product’s like this one. Over the week my I could see my teeth getting whiter and whiter, as I mentioned in my previous post about the toothpaste, I do have a darker spot where two of my teeth slightly overlap, with other products this dark patch become more noticable with the product not fully moulding to my teeth, the toothpaste helped alleviate that darkness, but with this product I saw that same darkness coming back through with the whitening of the rest of my teeth, the product just wasn’t reaching into those awkward spots. With the yellowness on my incisors (my main focus area) it did whiten the tips/bottom half and comparing the two image’s you can see the teeth leading towards the back of the mouth aren’t as yellow looking, and much more whiter after the 5 day trial.
Compared to my previous whitening product White Glo Diamond Series Advanced Teeth Whitening System they both give the same results and the price point is fairly similar however White Glo also includes the toothpaste and reusable mouth tray. If you want something less bulky and much more flexible to be able to mould your teeth I would personally recommend using whitening strips rather than trays, both brands offer whitening strips in their range however I have yet to trial the Janina one’s.
After – 1 Application
Unsure what my hand is doing here…??
