Initial Impressions: Mr Blanc Teeth Whitening Strips

Wednesday, January 06, 2016
Teeth whitening is something I've always been interested in since I started drinking coffee about four years ago as it does stain my teeth so they become slightly yellow which I don't think most people on a day to day basis would really noticed but it's something that I noticed often and it does bother me so when I received the *Mr Blanc Teeth Whitening Strips (£24.99) from Boots late last year I was so excited to give them a go!

As much as I want to try new and exciting teeth whitening products I am a little cautious about it as I don't want to have any negative side effects and I have slightly sensitive teeth anyway and I don't want to make it worse. The Mr Blanc strips do NOT contain hydrogen peroxide (bleach) which most teeth whitening products do which is fantastic as it can be harmful and cause sensitivity. It contains ingredients that are enamel friendly, safe to use and they have been tested and approved by EU and UK cosmetic laws. I think the price is fantastic, I thought they would be much more expensive.

The strips come in individual packets so you can use them as and when you want to and they would be great for traveling. The strips come as a bottom strip and top strip and you peel them off the plastic and place onto dry teeth. It looks and feels strange as they have gel on them so it looks like jelly sticky tape to me.

For my first use, I left them on for about 15 minutes which is half the time that is recommended as I hadn't tried them before and I'm glad I did as I experienced some sensitivity which lasted for a day or so but it wasn't that bad. Also I noticed a couple of whiter areas on my teeth which I can occasionally get anyway, even when I'm not using any teeth whitening products and after a quick google search I didn't have any answers as to what it was but on the Mr Blanc website it says that it is normal and temporary. After a day or so the white marks on my two front teeth had faded so much.

Even just using the strips once and for half the time I should have, I noticed whiter teeth! My two front teeth were about a shade lighter and my other teeth were also lighter but not as much. In terms of the whitening effects, I'm incredibly impressed. However the sensitivity and white marks that appeared on a couple of my teeth does put me off using them daily but I will continue to use them and I'll report back. Also the gel that is left behind is so gross, I washed it off in record time!

Have you tried the Mr Blanc teeth whitening strips? Do you use any teeth whitening products, if so do they work? 


  1. I have heard good things about these but the white spots sound weird. I'm always looking for whitening products that don't make my teeth sensitive.

  2. I haven't used these but I really love Janina Whitening Strips & they are chemical-free & don't make your teeth tingle with sensitivity but really whiten the teeth! xx


  3. these look nice!

  4. Omg! I need to try these, they sound amazing. I currently use whitening toothpaste and it doesn't seem to be working. xx


  5. I've never used whitening strips before but it really is something I've wanted to try!

  6. I rarely use teeth whitening products as my teeth are so sensitive but it's good to hear these are not as harmful as other options on the market x

  7. I rarely buy teeth whitening products for the same reason as you, the negative side effects. However, this product does sound good :) xx

  8. I have tried the mouth guard method etc and hated it so would definitely like to give these a go, sounds like they really do make a difference xxx


  9. Ooh I've seen so much about these especially on Instagram. I'm obsessed with teeth whitening products so I'll have to try these out - I was a die-hard fan of the Crest strips but I think they changed the formula as I get SUCH bad sensitivity using those now :( So sad!
    Thanks a lot for your comment on my blog a few weeks back, too! I've really enjoyed reading through some of the bits on your blog tonight, and have followed on Bloglovin'. Feel free to follow me back if you like so we can keep up with each other :)
