Product Review: Target's 1 Hour Intense Whitening

Let me begin by saying that Target has in no way sponsored this post. When I find a beauty item that works well and isn't expensive, well I just have to share. All the opinions here are my own and are truthful. To begin you should know that I drink a lot of coffee. I have red wine with dinner occasionally and I do not smoke.

I got my teeth cleaned and noticed that they weren't as sparkly as I would like.  So I headed to my local Target where I stood in the Oral Care aisle for what felt like forever. Looking over all the products I decided I wanted something quick that would provide results.  I don't have the time to whiten my teeth for a week let alone a two hour block. I finally settled on Target's 1 Hour Intense Whitening kit. The price came in at under $13, it was on sale, and comes with the items you see listed.

A few days after the cleaning, I used the product.  First step, accelerator rinse - easy to open but didn't taste great.  What do you expect though with a whitening rinse. Step 2 - Whitening.  The trays come in sets of two, a lower and an upper.  I don't know if I would call them trays as they weren't plastic but more like wax. Getting them out of the protective wrapping was difficult.  My pull tabs kept breaking off.  Still not a deal breaker.  I placed the trays on my teeth and waited the allotted time. In that time, I took a shower and rough dried my hair.  The waxy trays really stuck to my teeth and took a little effort to remove.  Nothing painful just not as easy as I would have liked. Step 3 - repeat step 1. Step 4 - repeat step 2. Step 5 - Whitening rinse and done.

My teeth were whiter but not as white as I had hoped for. They did get brighter as the night went on.  I experienced some gum sensitivity which lasted for a few days. The husband was impressed with the results. So much so that he bought a kit for himself. I would say for the price, this is a great product.  Its not going to erase 14 years of stains like some of the Crest products advertise but I believe it works just as well. I like that it came in a wax tray rather than a strip. I liked that I could do things like shower/wash my face and I didn't fear that the product was going to leak out. The only thing I didn't like - because the trays were wax they stuck to themselves after a few mins. If you buy these just make sure your bite is how you want it otherwise you are going to be in some discomfort for the remaining time.

Thanks for stopping by



  1. I just tried using these. I ran across you're review. My teeth are not as white as I would of liked. I hope they brighten over night

    1. Hey Jasmine. Thanks for reading the review and trying out the product xoxo

  2. Your review is spot on. It says every six months. I am going to try one tray instead of both weekly for a while. At $11 on sale, that would be only 22 dollars for the month. Hoping weekly treatments for a month make a difference.

    1. Thanks for the comment Chrislyn. Thats a great idea. Keep in touch and let me know if it works. xoxo

  4. I have very white teeth. This month I settled on this product simply because of the cheap price. I am VERY happy with the results and would use again!
