Tarte's EnbritenmintSaturday, May 17, 2008
Yes, that really is what you think it is: a dual ended wand with lip gloss and BriteSmile's To Go Whitener! Quite frankly when I first heard about this, I would never have thought about combining tooth whitener and lip gloss.
After trying it out, I have to say that this is a pretty cool product. The lip gloss is very similar to Tarte's other glosses, infused with the fruits goji, acai, maracuja, acerola and pomegranate which offer vitamins and anti-oxidants. The lipgloss is very shiny, long lasting and not at all sticky. The colors (pearly pink and radiant red) were formulated to make your smile look brighter, which I think really does work! In particular I love pearly pink, a light pink color with great shimmer.
I waited a week or so before trying out the BriteSmile side (I waited until after my dental appointment, I figured that whitening my tartar build up was not very helpful). It was pretty easy to use. I simply brushed it on to my teeth, where it formed a thick film over my teeth. You simply don't need to do anything else. Just don't eat or drink for 30 minutes, the gel has a great minty taste.
With daily use the wand is meant to last about 30-45 days for the tooth whitener, the gloss would likely last about that long as well unless you apply it every 30 minutes or so.
