If you’ve always dreamed of having perfectly white teeth, you’re not alone. According to CivicScience, “48 percent of U.S. adults — just under half of adults in the country — have either experienced or are interested in pursuing teeth whitening.”
Teeth whitening treatments at the dentist are notoriously expensive. Not only do the best options start in the hundreds of dollars, but they can also be painful. Teeth whitening at home, on the other hand, isn’t always as effective and it can also cost you a pretty penny.
Glowup seems to have heard all of these complaints because the brand’s teeth whitening kit only costs $60 and is customized to each users’ own teeth. As far as its efficacy, the brand promises results in as little as six days — and you only have to use the products for five minutes a day!

What sets Glowup apart — besides the fact that they are vegan and cruelty-free — is how tailored its whitening kits can be.
To get started with Glowup, users head online and fill out a quick questionnaire that covers everything from tooth sensitivity to cavity history. This way, you don’t have to worry about getting a whitening formula that’s too strong or too weak in your kit. If your formula isn’t quite right and you don’t see results, Glowup will tweak it.
Using Glowup is also simple enough to fit into your nightly routine. After brushing your teeth, add some whitening gel to the included whitening light, plug the light into your phone’s charging port (which is iPhone and Android friendly) and place the light in your mouth for at least five minutes.
Once your time is up, rinse the light and your mouth with water and you’re all set. For best results, Glowup says to repeat this process every day for 6 days until kit is finished.
One happy reviewer shared, “I went to the dentist today for a cleaning and was complemented by each hygienist on how beautiful my teeth looked. When I saw the dentist, she literally said that my teeth were glowing.”
While 87 percent of reviewers give Glowup five stars, some did say they wish the mouthpiece was smaller. That said, most users said they would use Glowup again.
