Want Whiter Teeth by Using a Body Cream?!

Ever tried Brushing your Teeth with a Body Cream? No? Well this morning on Twitter I heard from LovelyisLovely that you can use Karin Herzog’s Oxygen cream to brush your teeth to make them appear whiter! Sounds odd yes but it actually works!

Apparently clinical trials have proven that using the oxygen cream as a tooth paste can improve problems like receding gums, gingivitis and periodontal disease. As oxygen creams are mildly antiseptic they will help prevent decay and the mouth feels super-clean afterwards, plus teeth will gradually become whiter.

Last summer I used the Crest Whitening Strips which were very effective, however I hated the taste of the bleach and only used them for 3 days just to brighten up my smile as I had heard reports that they can make teeth sensitive. So after hearing about this Karin Herzog Tip I thought I would give it a go!
I had a good feeling that this cream would work, as I’ve noticed when I apply onto my body, it seems to have a slight bleaching effect on my skin. This cream is very safe to use on the teeth as their products don’t contain any preservatives or parabens, so far safer than using bleaching agents!

I applied a small amount of the 4% Karin Herzog Oxygen Body Cream onto my toothbrush (I use the Sensodyne Pronamel toothbrush) and worked into my teeth and gums. It has no taste what-so-ever. After brushing for about 2 minutes I left the cream on my teeth for a couple more minutes so that the cream would foam up and work its magic. I then rinsed and brushed my teeth with my normal minty toothpaste. Amazingly my teeth felt super clean and brighter afterwards! I shall definitely be continuing with this regime.

  1. Thanks for the great recommendation - I had professional dentist whitening and tried the Crest strips and it definitely weakened my enamel - to the extend that the top of one of my lower front teeth chipped :(

Also, all Crest Whitestrips are made with the same enamel safe ingredients that dentist use. @Kat O - can you please give us a ring? We'd really like to talk in detail. +44 (0)1932 896000 or + 44 (0)191 297 5000 Thanks!
