Like with any teeth whitening product the main thing that concerns people the most is the price. Luster premium white has two whitening kits, the Pro Light Dental Whitening System which sells on their website for $43.99 and they also have a two-minute whitening kit which sells for $12.99 both of which containing the same ingredients. Compared to other teeth whitening kits the price range is very reasonable.
Now let’s get to the real important stuff, the whitening agent! The whitening agent is what makes or breaks ALL teeth whitening products. If you’re not currently aware, the best whitening agent on the market is hydrogen peroxide. Hydrogen peroxide is the same exact whitening agent your dentist uses when you go for an in office teeth whitening. The reason why dentists use hydrogen peroxide as the active whitening agent is because it simply works better than any other whitening agent out there. This is why when you see any teeth whitening product out there that doesn’t contain hydrogen peroxide it’s almost guaranteed not to work.
Now in the case of luster pro their product contains what’s known as carbamide peroxide which contains only 1/3 of the power of hydrogen peroxide. On their website when you look at the ingredients you’ll see it’s the active whitening agent is listed as “urea hydrogen peroxide” (11% w/w). Don’t be fooled by the name, some people might see the words “hydrogen peroxide” in the name and automatically assume that they are getting the same thing that dentists use. Dentists use “hydrogen peroxide” NOT “urea hydrogen peroxide” which is just another name for carbamide peroxide.
According to the ADA (America Dental Association), 10% of carbamide peroxide is equal to 3.5% hydrogen peroxide. To put things in perspective, dentists use up to 35% hydrogen peroxide to deliver results that they do, luster pro products contain only 11% carbamide peroxide which equals to about 3.6 hydrogen peroxide. So you cannot realistically expect anything spectacular from luster pro light teeth whitening system (or any product for that matter) if it containing such a little amount of hydrogen peroxide.
Other Ingredients (Warning!)
One thing I can say about the other included ingredients in this whitening product is the fact that they are less than satisfactory. For example, one of the main ingredients found in most of luster pro products is Alcohol Denat which is short for Denatured alcohol which according to Wikipedia, it is ethanol that has additives that make it poisonous, bad tasting, and foul smelling to discourage recreational consumption. This seems like a pretty pointless ingredient to add to a teeth whitening product. It also contains Methyl Hydrogenated Rosinate, Hydroxypropylcellulose, Mentha Piperita (Peppermint) Oil, Menthol, Sucralose.
Now one thing I do want to clarify is that a lot of commercial oral products have these type of harmful ingredients. For example, in Listerine and other mouthwashes you will find Alcohol Denat which is what gives you that burning sensation. At the end of the day this is something you really should consider before purchasing this kit.
As far as their refund policy is concerned it a bit tricky, you are given 30 days to use the product and if you’re not satisfied you can simply return the kit to get a refund. You’ll be only refunded the price of the product, any shipping and tax paid will not be refunded.
The thing is you are only allowed to get a refund if you purchase directly from their official website or directly from Amazon. If you purchase any of their products from websites such as eBay or any unauthorized resellers you will not be entitled to a refund. Also if you purchase multiple products you are only entitled a refund for one product and that’s also per household.
Reviews From Others
Below I posted some screenshots that I took from several websites showing you what other people who have purchased this product:
So at the end of the day, based on the reviews about it’s either a love or a hate relationship when it comes to any product manufactured by Luster. Some people swear by their products while others claim it doesn’t work for them. Based on the information I’ve provided above hopefully you can make your own decisions.
