We attended this year’s Face & Body Expo to see the latest and greatest in lotions, potions and more! Although the show was aimed at salon and shop owners, most companies were more than happy to chat with us and show us their goods. First up is GoSmile, where we tested several products on and off camera including their Touch Up ampoules, FlashLites Smile Touch ups and AM/PM Toothpaste duo.
GoSmile differentiates itself from the pack by eliminating the pain and “mess” that usually comes along with teeth whitening. Here’s my assessment of the items I tested:
Touch Up ampoules: I tested original mint flavored ampoules and my first thought was that they’re not very minty. Other than that, I like how the ampoule makes it easy to put the solution on all of your teeth and on some more than others if needed. It’s not messy and or goopy and can be done after lunch and then just left on. Very easy and there was no pain after using them for the week.
FlashLites Smile Touch ups: These were very similar to the Touch Ups, but are more for “instantly erase everyday stains caused by coffee, red wine and more, before they set.” Great to keep in your purse or car.
AM/PM Toothpaste Duo: I’ve been using the same toothpaste for awhile now, so these tasted very strange at first, but I did get used to them. The best way I can describe it is that they taste more herbal-y. The AM is formulated with essential oils including lemon, lime, orange, and mandarin, and is infused with peppermint. The PM has essential oils like chamomile and lavender, valerian root, and a dash with vanilla. Sounds more like a recipe than a toothpaste, but they both contain white cranberry extract (to whiten) and fluoride to prevent decay.
