I bought Crest Whitestrips from Biovea.com and it was awesome

For those of you who don’t know, Crest Whitestrips are these little sticky tape-type things that are infused with lots of peroxide. I slap them on my teeth every week or so and bleach the shit out of them ‘cos I like them looking white. Maybe this is bad for them and they’ll all fall out one day but hey, I really don’t care. Girl likes her teeth to look blinding, okay? Anyway, this is not a review for Crest Whitestrips – I simply want to let you know that I found being sold for R552 from a company online called Biovea and they’re Amazing with a capital A. You see, I usually buy my strips via eBay but now that our postal system’s a total fuck show I had to make another plan and that’s how a quick google brought me to what seems to be an online chemist, Biovea.com/za. I bought my stripes on Tuesday for and BOOM they arrived today (Thursday) direct to my door via Fedex and shipping was free. Can we get an OMG?!

I don’t know much about Biovea. They seem to ship everywhere in the world and stock loads of brands but don’t have an ‘About Us’ page to indicate where they’re based. The crazy speed at which they got my order to me, however, makes me think they have an SA-based wharehouse.  But ja, if you want to want to buy anything from them, strips or otherwise, know I give them a big ass two thumbs up. Love, love Leigh Update: It would seem I nabbed the last R552 Crest pack. Of what’s left and still reasonably priced, I wouldn’t opt for the 2-hour express or Sensitive strips. Your next best bet to offer you bang for your buck while getting the job done would be the Classic Vivid strips for R775. That isn’t a great price though so perhaps shop around a bit and see what you can dig up if you want Crest strips specifically. However, if you see anything else on the site, be it vitamins or a cosmetic item feel safe in knowing this store’s a real gem.

  1. Thanks for this blog post, definitely going to check them out! I used the Crest packet you gave me just the other day – thanks again. Keen to do a full 10-day treatment soon, so will be placing an order for sure. 🙂 x

  2. These strips are magic but sooo hard to get ones hands on in SA, Crest please just bring them here! I usually use Ebay but like you said postal strike meh…

  3. Don’t buy them! I am not criticizing the product as I have never tried it. I did in fact place an order and I did pay for it but am still waiting; this a month later. I ordered via Biovea and even received a tracking number. Tracing the parcel indicates that once it arrived in the RSA, it disappeared down a black hole! The tracking number is only used within the USA (and possibly other first world countries) but means NOTHING locally. As for BIOVEA, there is no contact of any type, so guess what? So my advice, STAY AWAY!!!!!!

    1. Sorry to hear you had a negative experience. Mine was a good one. If it helps, I now buy my strips from eBay as it’s cheaper and if they don’t arrive you can get reimbursed via eBay’s insurance. While Biovea might’ve let you down, the actual product is a brilliant one that I’ve been using and loving for years x x

  4. Great review. went ahead and ordered from Biovea, not only have a not received it’s since September last year, they also haven’t refunded my money.

    1. Shame man! That’s so shit! For the record, this is a very old post. I’m running out the door now but when I have time on the weekend I’m going to update it to let people know it’s been ages since I ordered from them and I can’t vouch for their service anymore. I now buy from eBay which offers buyer protection.
