What: Robin test runs the Rembrandt Whitening Touch Up Pen to fend off stains before they have a chance to set in, $12.99.
The Lowdown: With so many teeth whitening options available, it’s hard to figure out which makes the most sense. Trays, strips, toothpastes, laser treatments . . . what’s a girl—who just wants a white smile to do? And a smile that doesn’t make its onlookers have to put on sunglasses either, if you catch my drift. The Rembrandt Whitening Touch Up Pen isn’t meant for people who look like they’ve been chewing tobacco for twenty years. Instead, it is supposed to be an in-between whitener, kind of like a whitening maintenance wand. Drank some coffee, tea, glass of Bordeaux? Simply break out this pen and rub over your teeth to diminish any staining effects. That’s the theory anyway.
While the pen tip seems a bit hard (I prefer to let the whitening gel ooze out of the pen and then rub it onto my teeth with my finger for maximum coverage), I do feel my teeth have been looking a bit brighter these days. The gel also doesn’t irritate my gums like others have in the past.
Yea or Nay: It’s a yea.
