Rembrandt FORM-FIT Whitening Strips Review

The Rembrandt Whitening Strips are similar to Crest Whitestrips, in that it uses thin strips which “mold” onto the top and bottom teeth. However, the strip design is a bit different in that it is curved for a better fit – the makers call it FORMFIT® technology. Overall, the Rembrandt Whitening Strips are good for what they are made for: Minor whitening for the six anterior and posterior teeth that the strips cover.

Using Rembrandt Whitening Strips

- You get 20 individually foil wrapped strips: 10 for your upper teeth, and 10 for your bottom teeth.
- You peel the strips off of a plastic film-like material or a “backing liner”. - You align them with your gumline and then fold the bottom of the strip underneath your teeth to hold in place.
- You apply the strips for 30minutes a day, for five days.

The top strips are longer than the bottom strips. Despite them being longer, they only covered 6 teeth fully on our tester and half of the 1st bicuspids (the fourth tooth from the incisor). The back teeth were visible when the tester smiled so it was a disappointment that the top strip didn't cover more teeth.

The Packaging

The packaging Rembrandt used for this product before 2006 looked amateurish and unprofessional – it could not compete next to a Crest product when sitting side by side to it on store shelves. In the last year or so, Rembrandt’s marketing team went about redesigning all packaging for their product line up. The packaging they use now looks very professional and consumer friendly!

Whitening Factor

We couldn't tell if the whitening was working during the first four treatments, but somewhere near the 6th or 7th, the teeth on the tester started to appear whiter. While the teeth are whiter, we were not blown away by the overall whiteness. Nonethless, we would recommend them if you only need minor whitening. Please remember to get the Rembrandt strips that are packaged in a square box, as these have a higher hydrogen peroxide concentration – the packaging will say “Advanced Whitening Strips” on it. Avoid purchasing the weaker Rembrandt Mint Whitening strips (packaged in a curved box).

This product comes with instructions for those that can't get the strips out of the package, the instructions tell you how to do this correctly. For those that experience the strip sticking to your lips or mouth....seriously?? READ THE INSTRUCTIONS then proceed. You align the strip just below the gumline (for top teeth), if the strip is too long you FOLD IT UNDER your teeth. It is recommended that you do your bottom teeth first, because of saliva, then your top teeth. Results of course are going to vary. They are very easy & convenient for me to apply. Mine dissolve in approx. 10-15 minutes, I would guess this depends on how dry your mouth is. The strips do work, not dental grade of course but I did experience whitening. I will continue to use these because generally I have sensitivity issues with the Crest Brand....but not these? I love the ease of use, affordability, they work and I would definitely recommend them to my friends.

I'm always skeptical of whitening strips and trays but the price was decent and I had read some decent reviews. Picked up a box today. I had read that the strips were hard to get out of the package without ripping but I had zero problems. I suggest you have dry hands and that your bathroom is not humid. Cut the sides open carefully if you need to. Was easy to apply and had an interesting fizzy feeling when it started to work. Try not to get it on your gums (in front AND behind teeth). I felt a little bit of sensitivity but it wasn't too uncomfortable while the product was on my teeth.

I was impressed by the quick results. As a heavy coffee drinker, I didnt think I would see anything till I had used it for a few days minimum. :)

Before purchasing an "At Home Teeth Whiting Kit" I asked my dental hygienist what works best for whiting teeth. She said a custom fitting mouth piece and gel whitening agent. Okay, so I go to Target and look at Crest strips, no gel or mouth piece, and I find Rembrandt, gel whitener & a form fitting mouth piece -- perfect. Purchased it, $20, even better -- great price. Got home researched reviews for Rembrandt and was concerned and just about to return it until I read reviews about READING the instructions. I though I bet most people don't bother with that step and keeping in mind what my dentist office told me about mouth piece & gel as the best / most effective. Plus, the instructions said that if the product bothers you just rinse out your mouth and you'll be fine. Further, the instructions and reviews said to use just a thin ribbon of the gel. So, okay; I formed the mouth pieces, top & bottom -- beautiful, a perfect fit. Opened the little gel tubes and thought that I should be conservative, cautious & careful to just put a thin ribbon of the gel in the mouth pieces. Again, great. Kept them in for twenty minutes. Rinse, wait another twenty minutes and repeat. No issues what so ever and after only two twenty minutes sessions my teeth were clearly whiter. Plus, I only used ONE tube of gel for each session and there are eight tubes in the kit which means you can have eight teeth whitening sessions. Moreover, the instructions state that you don't HAVE to use all of the tubes of gel. You can save them and Rembrandt suggests to save them in the frig so the gel doesn't "spoil" / lose their effectiveness. This is a great product!!! And probably most similar to what you would get in the dentist's office treatment for hundreds of dollars less and about half the price of Crest's products. I say, "Go for it!" but be careful & cautious until YOU find the right balance in whitening YOUR teeth. For me, a nice white smile says a lot about you and brightens up your whole face. Great product at a great price. Highly recommended. The people who had a bad reaction probably didn't follow the directions and put too much gel in the mouth pieces. Johnson & Johnson is not known as a reckless company. Again, great product!

This product was simply awful. It's difficult trying to get the strip out in one piece from the package, and even more difficult trying to paste it on your teeth without it ripping or crumpling. It was a waste of money, and I regret not trying a different method.

This product is such a waste of money. I read all these great reviews only to find out the product isn't great. The strips are so dry and sticky it sticks to itself then you have a wasted striped or the product sticks to the sides of the foil. I was hoping for the price it would be a well worth it product but it really isn't. I'm going to try the Crest white strips and getting my money back for these.

I have been using these for several years now and they are by far the best whitening strips! They stay on my teeth and don't slide around and cause minimal irritation.

Love the Rembrandt whitening strips, I have used them religiously for 5 + years and no other product can compare. The sensitivity is mild to none and the spotting will fade within a day or two. It has been a problem trying to find them on store shelves now-a-days and t"your" best bet is to order them through the rembrandt website. I have used the 2 hour kit plus other Crest products but like I already mentioned above, these strips are by far the best.

I use these strips twice a year and they are great! I drink my coffee black, my tea black and I smoke, so I have problems with stains. These waxy strips stay in place the whole 30 minutes, I don't get any irritation, and I notice a drastic change in 4-5 days.
*Ignore those who say they don't have a problem with stained teeth and rate this product as terrible. These people are trying to get unnaturally cotton white teeth, not get rid of stains.

Horrible. I have only used these white strips for two days, but that's it. I refuse to use them again because I have patchy white stains all over my teeth, which were non-existent before. They stink. Don't bother buying them unless you want to have polka dot teeth.

i have pretty straight teeth after having braces for 3 years, but they were not that white so i decided to try this product since it's pretty cheap compared to other whitening strips products like crest. i'm very pleased with the product. it stays on my teeth and i did not have any irratation at all. i used it in october and i just got a new box again after about 5 months. i would say it's worth it since i saw a drastic change and i even get compliments on how white my teeth are now.

these slid off my teeth like crazy!! Plus I drooled so much I had to stay in front of the sink with my mouth open. Made my teeth only ONE shade lighter then it went away after a couple of days! My top teeth ached very much afterwards as well.
I bought these after reading so many good reviews but don't bother buying! I'm going to try crest white strips instead after this.

also, it left super white tiny squares in the tips of my teeth.

DON't BUY!

I bought these today and just removed my first set of strips about 10 minutes ago. I have never used a whitening product before, apart from whitening toothpaste, and overall these made the experience pretty pleasant. The strips stayed on with no budging, the taste was not too rancid and the treatment didn't irritate my gums or the nerves in my teeth.

My only gripe is that after I took them off and rinsed/brushed my teeth, I noticed that the whiteness on my teeth was a little patchy -- like the strips had bleached some parts of my teeth more than the other parts. I know this will likely even out after another day or two so I'm not very concerned, but if I look closely in the mirror it is quite visible. Still, at least I know that the peroxide is working, if I can see whiter parts after one use. I assume they probably take off the stains closest to the surface first and then work deeper every day that you use them.

I'm hoping that they'll work as well for me as they did for other people. At least I will not have spent a fortune on them if they end up being mediocre -- they were on sale at Shoppers' for $20 :)

I have been using these strips for several years and love them. My teeth are at a constant state of whiteness. Also they stay on my teeth better than any other brand. As a matter of fact I have some on now, I am just looking for the best price online.

These whitening strips worked great for me! They burned my gums a bit but lightened by teeth by several shades. The strips do stay in place and are easy to apply. I would definitely recommend! If you're looking for an affordable good teeth whitener, go with these!

i currently have my last pair of whitening strips in now. i'm on this website to try to find whitening strips that work better.

i notice a difference after using these. they maybe whitened my teeth a few shades, though it may just be psychological.

i definitely experienced some sensitivity. the first time i used them it was really painful for one of my bottom teeth. every few minutes it would just feel like, idk, like a charley horse for your tooth. when i took them off there was a small white stain at the tip of the tooth. im not sure if it's always been there, which may have caused the sensitivity, but hopefully it goes away.

anywhooo, i bought these on clearance. it was about 12 bucks for 7 pairs of strips (6, actually, someone in my family stole a set). i wont buy again.

These are the best whitening strips!
They are very easy to put on and keep on!

My teeth did not become sensitive but that maybe because I've been brushing with sensitive toothpaste.

I did get some white spots but they disappeared within a couple of days and they burned my gums a bit.

Overall, I love these and will continue to buy it.

I have tried several different types of white strips, and these worked the best for me. I feel my teeth whitened more quickly compared to Crest Whitestrips (my 2nd favorite). Not only that, they are cheper than the whitestrips and they cover more teeth so the whitening is more uniform.

I bought this “10 pack” (5 upper, 5 lower) at Big Lots for $10 (April 2008) in the old style packaging. After three days (two more to go), I have already seen the kinds of results I was looking for.

I have tried several different whitening products. They all produce some sensitivity in my teeth. They also all produce some white spots which do go away after a few days of finishing treatment. The experience with these Rembrandt strips has been better than all the previous products I have tried. Less sensitivity, etc.

The strips are thick, like waxy sticks of chewing gum. You fold them onto your teeth and they hold tight. The instructions say to leave them on for 30 minutes. They are VERY sticky when removing them, but this means they do NOT slide around like Crest strips. They also do NOT ooze blobs of peroxide gel like Aquafresh trays—and they whiten the whole front surface of the tooth from the gumline down (Aquafresh trays only whitened the edge of my teeth due to the way the gel sits in the trays).

I still spit when I’m using these (something I started doing because of Aquafresh trays) because I don’t want to swallow the peroxide stuff, but I have found there is a LOT LESS peroxide flavor floating around inside my mouth with these.

They are not subtle, and when you remove them you have to do more than just rinse your mouth to get the residue off—I brush with a soft toothbrush.

However, they are very effective. They are what I will choose in the future for regular whitening.

The only other thing I could ask for is something to whiten the teeth in the back of my mouth. :)

because of their waxiness they are much more convenient to keep on for a half hour than other whitening strips i've tried.
they are also significantly cheaper than most.
on the downside, they made my teeth REALLY sensitive afterwards, far more than crest did. and i generally don't have sensitive teeth at all.
