Listerine Whitening Strips Review

The Listerine Whitening Quick Dissolving Strips is the first tooth whitening product that uses the dissolvable strip technology (Desgined by Pfizer). Listerine claims that the strips dissolve in just a few minutes

What does the Listerine Whitening Strips Package contain?

Each package contains 56 strips. Unlike other whitening strip products, these strips can be used for either the top or bottom teeth. This allows for much more versatility as some users prefer to focus on only the top or bottom teeth.

Opening the packaging and applying the strips is a little tricky, enough so that you will probably destroy a few strips on accident. Many users have complained that the strips often stick to the package and then tear when trying to pull out of the package.

Once the Listerine strips dissolve, does it leave hydrogen peroxide exposed against the inside lip?

Hydrogen Peroxide will irritate tissue. However, Listerine has made it so that when the hydrogen peroxide is activated in the mouth, it breaks down to oxygen and water. When the strip dissolves, the user is only swallowing water and the strip material. In addition, since this is an over-the-counter product, the hydrogen peroxide percentage is very low

Do the Strips Really Dissolve?

Listerine advertises that the strips dissolve completely in about 10 minutes and that teeth brushing is not necessary. However, many users have found the strips to leave a thick, slimy residue on the teeth (like corn starch). Also, pieces of the strips are often found leftover on the teeth.

Bottom line: Do the Listerine White Strips work?

If you can manage to get the strips onto your teeth, the strips will work. While you might not see extreme whitening results, you should be able to achieve a few lighter shades. I think this is a great product from a marketing standpoint. Listerine will get a lot of sales, but the question is, will they get repeat sales?

I just put one of these on my teeth for the first time and I can't believe nobody here mentioned the horrid taste. UGH!!!! I think I can see a bit of a difference after just using one so if you can take the awful taste then these are probably a good deal.

Normally I'm not a Listerine fan, never have been, but Whitening Quick works and does just that. So I digress to buying and using this product almost daily.

Since my last review in December 2011, I have used Crest 2 Hour and Crest Advanced strips. The Advanced strips wouldn't stick to my teeth, and neither of these products work like Listerine Whitening Strips did. The only problem I had with Listerine strips was trying to apply them if it was humid or if my mouth or hands weren't dry. LWS was THE best whitening product over the counter. My teeth will never be as white again, unless I pay for a professional whitening. If I had known I could never buy them again, I would have stocked up big time!! For the person who recently posted that they were expensive and didn't work, you have to be on the wrong website, or you work for or are related to someone working for Crest. The fact is, Listerine worked and put all other whitening products to shame, including dental/ortho products, as the cost was affordable. I MISS MY LISTERINE WHITENING STRIPS!!!

Listerine dissolving stripe are the best - where can we find them beside E-Bay? Why can't we find them in the stores? From this web-site everyone is looking for them. Guess they don't like to make money. I wish I could develop the product I would be rich tomorrow - lol

Bad ingredients, too expensive, and doesn't work - at all.

Waste of money, and I guarantee you that if your teeth aren't at least 80% white already they will never get "whiter."

I have searched all over for these strips and can't find them anywhere.
I am very dissapointed because my teenagers and I got great results from them. I have a hard time using the crest strips. They are harder to work with. I like the way the listerine strips stick to the teeth and dissolve. Please bring them back!!!!

Great product pretty easy to use if you take care when opening the strip.I bought some in Mankato when on holiday in the America,they definately increased the whiteness of my teeth by an estimated 50%! if I could have bought some in New Zealand my teeth would be even whiter.Now I have used the last one a few months ago and my teeth are slowly going back to the usuall shade. I would import them and distribute the product in New Zealand and Australia if I can get an answer from the manufacturers.

The last whitening strips I bought are impossible to use. What's happened to them? The new ones are almost impossible to remove from their backing and come our in long curls, if at all.

I really liked the ones I had before. Is this why they're off the market?

Still trying to locate the product on ANY shelf. Absolutely love the product and sooooo disappointed that I can no longer find the strips. I dislike Crest, they are not my whitener of choice for a multitude of reasons.

Trying to find something that is comparable. Disappointed to learn they are not available!!

Why would you discontinue these? These strips work so well and are so easy to use. The stores could never keep enough on the shelves, they would sell out so fast. I won't use any other kind. Please, please bring them back!!!! It is so convenient having dissolving strips, you can go anywhere, do anything and just forget about them. They're wonderful. You would make so many people happy and make brighter smiles. Please let me know if they become available again.

I contacted Johnson & Johnson, who produces Listerine. I asked if they make the Listerine Whitening Strips and where I could purchase them. Unfortunately, they discontinued them this summer. Please contact 888-222-0182 if you'd like to give them feedback and/or ask them to reconsider their decision. This product absolutely works. I've been using it for a few years and am asked often how I get my teeth so white. My orthodontist wanted me to purchase their whitening kit for approximately $200, and I declined. Went back for my 9 month checkup, and he said, "Your teeth are really white," then asked what I used. With a smile, I said, "Listerine whitening strips!" Another product that works is their Listerine Whitening Plus Restoring Fluoride Rinse; however, the whitening strips are the best. Btw, Crest White Strips do not work well, nor do the stay on your teeth. Hopefully, Johnson & Johnson will bring back their strips! Please call if you'd like to give feedback.

I got he Listerine whitening strips as a gift for xmas and I didnt think that they were going to work well considering their disolvable strips but I was very amazed at how quickly they disolved in my mouth, it was after 10 minutes mind you it took more like 20 but they left no residue on my teeth, my mouth felt fresh. However I did have troubles putting the bottom strip on the very first time and ended up wasting it but the second one wenht on better once i alligned it properly. i am very satisfied with my strips :)

There was so much to like about Listerine Whitening Strips! The price was perfect, the strips were so convenient, and they actually WORKED! Used them for two weeks and there was a amazing difference. I got compliments and my teeth were so white. But I haven't been able to find them in stores like Wal-Mart and Walgreen's...I have tried other products but none of them work. Where can I find Listerine Whitening Strips?!?

If used consistently for 2 weeks as directed, these definitely work. I have actually had a number of people who know me well, ask me if I've had my teeth whitened. I try to use a box every month or so just to maintain my teeth. Trick to getting them to stick to your teeth is to lick your teeth first, apply the strip, then lick your teeth with the strip on them again lightly. One down side of these, is that I do find I have to brush my teeth after the strips dissolve (about 20 minutes). However, I don't have to worry about drooling all over myself so as to avoid swallowing the whitening solution. I have found, as other reviewers have mentioned, that from time to time I will find a box where the strips stick to the paper and I have to struggle to peel the strip off, so the quality doesn't seem to be as consistent as one would expect. Can't see to find these in the stores these days. I hope they aren't being discontinued!

Ok so I go to buy on-line on and the only vendor that seems to have them in stock is Amazon.Com and they want $39.99!!! Seriously, keep them! Would love an answer as to when or if the product will become available again in my area.

I have been using these strips for about....5 yrs lol. They work great but they are starting to cause my gums to be sensitive and it almost seems like my gums are turning white. Its not gingitivis, but I def have to schedule an apt with the dentist bc my gums dont look right :( These are addicting and they DO WORK. I have been complimented on my smile for years...but now my poor gums hurt! :(

I've been using these for about 4 days & my teeth seem to be getting whiter, but time will tell after the full two weeks. They do taste kinda bad, like chlorine. Plus the one time I was trying to put them on my bottom teeth & they stuck on my lips & fingers, and it was all balled up. I started gagging & almost puked. Then I started to cut them to fit my teeth better & haven't had that problem since. For me they seem to disolve pretty well & I haven't had a burning problem, nor have my teeth gotten sensitive. For a sixteen year old with no job these are more affordable than the Crest, & that is the only reason I got these insted. So far they seem to be doing the job, but like I said time will tell.

Felt like Christmas morning the first time I opened the box :) Not a big deal getting them out unless youre 5 and you can't read or understand the diagrams. Burned a little the first time I used them, also not a big deal. people need to stop bitching about them hurting bc it clearly says not to put it on your gums. Seeing some results, can't wait for the 2 weeks to be over

They suck horribly. Not only are they hard to get on your teeth, but once they're on they do nothing. And my TEETH ARE NOT STAINED TO BEGIN WITH, YET THIS PRODUCT DOES NADA ON MY TEETH! NOTHING!!!!!

Also, by the way, they took me 13-1/2 minutes to fully dissolve. Liars...
