Something White (with HiSmile)

As you guys may already know by now, Jared and I got engaged midnight January 1st this year in Athens! Whaaa? I’m still wrapping my head around this whole thing and I’m so excited and a little overwhelmed with this thing they call “wedding planning”. We’re moving along at quite a nice pace - we have our date, and our venue! But here’s the thing… some things take time, or so it seems. Things I need to take into consideration way in advance prior to the big day:

  • Skincare

  • Haircare

  • White teeth

Listen, I’m not a conventional bride (I’m a cool bride)… I’ve even considered wearing an all black wedding dress, or pulling a Dita Von Teese and wearing something so bold, beautiful and unique. I’m not a very traditional girl. Honestly, I never thought I’d get married or was ever that little girl who dreamt of this big day. But here’s something that I’ve always dreamed about… having white teeth!

As a coffee addict, having yellow-ish teeth is not something I care for but hey, coffee over all else, right?I’ve looked into going to the dentist to whiten my teeth, but I could not justify spending so much money for teeth that will just get yellow quick again with the minimum 3 cups of coffee I drink daily.



I want to say this while I’m still a baby blogger - I will never promote a product that I do not agree with, do not love or believe in. I will not promote a product that I, myself, will not spend my own money on.

When it came to HiSmile, I was a skeptic. I’ve seen it all over my own Instagram feed with models like Kendall Jenner and her famous sisters promoting it so I decided to reach out and give it a try!


In the age of social media, packaging and presentation is more important than ever! Not only is HiSmile’s packaging clean and aesthetically pleasing, it just puts a yellow grin on your face (this is because you have not used their product yet… but we’ll get there).

Here’s what you get:

  • 3 syringes (a 6 day supply) of HiSmile gels

  • LED light and mouth tray

  • A results chart (super handy)

  • Instruction manual (even though it’s straight forward, you want to be sure!)

I will spare you close up pictures of my then yellow teeth because you coffee drinkers get it, but on the results chart, I was about a 4 and was close to a 2 after two nights of using it!



Here’s what you do - after brushing your teeth, you apply 1/2 a syringe of whitening gel (1/4 on the top tray, 1/4 on the bottom), turn on the LED light, and relax for 10 minutes. When you’re done, just rinse with warm water. Easy, right?

HiSmile guarantees no pain or sensitivity during the whitening process, and I’m living proof.

PS: These photos were taken in cities miles apart. Which brings me to my next point!


Long before Marie Kondo’s Netflix series came out, I was a huge fan of both her books (The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up and Spark Joy). I vowed to only buy items that “sparked joy” in efforts to declutter my home and my life. Also as a traveller, this is great because it means more money saved going towards your next adventure! When I invest in a product, I consider 3 major things -

  1. Functionality (does it work/why do I need it)

  2. How often I’ll use said item

  3. Can I travel with it

First and foremost, I’m a traveller.

And you guessed it, we are having a destination wedding/hen and stag-do.

When it comes to self-care and grooming products, I need to be able to travel with it! Lucky with HiSmile, it is so compact and portable that you can take it ANYWHERE. And since I travel only with a carry-on luggage, I need all my liquids to fit into a ziplock bag. HiSmile’s syringes make it so easy to pack that you don’t have to worry about making room for it. So now I can enjoy my face mask and whitening my teeth on a flight.


Ok, so a teeth whitening kit from HiSmile costs $59.99. This includes everything I mentioned above. What is even better is that HiSmile offers a 30 day risk-free money-back guarantee! If you don’t achieve up to two shades whiter after you’re done with your full 6 day kit, contact their customer service and they’ll offer you a refund.

But you won’t need that because trust me, you’ll fall in love.


HiSmile also offers a wide range of products from day and night tooth paste, mouth wash, whitening gel pens and the oh so important refills! They’ve also recently launched their new pink toothpaste that I cannot wait to try myself!


Can you tell I’m a fan? I’ve been wanting to whiten my teeth for ages but always held off on spending tons of money on dental appointments. I’ve tried some strips and they made my teeth very sensitive. So yes, I am extremely thrilled that I found a safe, affordable, and every day solution to the worst side effect of being a coffee addict. Because HiSmile is now a part of my daily routine, I can now drink coffee without worrying about staining my teeth. Honestly, the best part of it all is that you can use it every day! So no need to wait for your dental appointment and you don’t have to worry about damaging your teeth. As a travel blogger, I take a lot of photos on my adventures. I can now travel and still keep up with beauty routine, ensuring that I’ll have bright, white teeth in every single shot. As for the wedding? I’m sure my teeth will be whiter than my dress and I wouldn’t have it any other way.


Till next time!



Note: Huge thanks to HiSmile for bringing me the white, bright smile that I’ve always wanted! And thank you Mon for being the sweetest (and Lila sends her love too)!
