Shine Bright Like a Diamond Colgate Max White One Optic | Review




With all the product buying I do, One product necessity for us all is toothpaste, and thinking about how much time I spend trying to find the right Skincare or Haircare products, one would think a little time and love would go into picking out a toothpaste, Especially as its something we all use twice daily!


I can only speak for myself here, but there are a few things I take into consideration when purchasing my toothpaste and Colgate have done a pretty good job in cutting my search down to 2 seconds when I'll be getting my next tube. Colgate MaxWhite ONE optic* 75ml @ £4.49  Using its unique optic brightener technology helps turn my pearly dulls into pearly whites. As you can see below, the Optic brighteners ( Those tiny little blue dots in the toothpaste ) that are inside toothpaste form this sheen on your teeth that reflect blue light and makes your teeth appear instantly whiter. We know our colour wheel! If our teeth are stained a orangey yellow we need a colour like blue to counteract it and neutralise it and give the appearance of whiter teeth!



For me, Flavor is a huge thing in toothpaste, Don't act like its not a big deal. I'm not a lover of sensodine. I think it tastes fowl, and anything that's too Pepperminty makes my mouth do this confused thing where it doesn't know if its too cold or on fire because of the mint overload and it just produces saliva so I'm spitting for the next 5 mins after brushing my teeth. Never had that? WELL YOU'RE LUCKY! 

I found the smell and flavor just right. It was more spearminty so there wasn't this mint overload, It helped with breath ( or so my bf said as we are both smokers ) and I felt the spearminty-ness lasted a couple hours. 

So lets do a cheeky before picture. I know I know, tiny teeth. :P If you can look past my GRRRRRRRRR face, You will see my top teeth aren't that great, and along with my bottom row middle 2 but then omg, the 2 beside them on each side are visibly more yellow. It looks horrible! rahhhh :(



You can see below the toothpaste is blue and I like to take my time brushing my teeth and really let the toothpaste get on my teeth and let those optic brighteners do their job! I brushed for 2 mins and swished it in my mouth as you do.. and you can even see from spitting it and dribbling some of the blue pigments in the sink :)







Now I mean... Don't get me wrong, my teeth aren't bling-a-rific but I can see a difference, The bottom teeth aren't nearly as yellow as they were! 
I'm really really happy with the results. The flavor, The packaging, The price, It all gets a thumbs up from me and they even feel clean, I run my tongue along them now and they just feel clean and strong.

Colgate. You make me sparkle ( obviously not like a diamond contrary to my title but you know what I mean :P)

Have you tried Colgate Max White One Optic?

  1. Haaa #tinyteethtwins I have the smallest teeth in the world, yours do not even look small in comparison! I have a proper gummy smile going on if I am not careful! Nice review lovely, made me want to go out and buy it! I usually use Arm and Hammer because of the baking soda doing lovely things to my teeth but I finished my last tube and I'm on my emergency generic Colgate. I shall be purchasing for sure. Thank you :)

  7. That looks really good! Did you experience any sensitivity at all? That's my main issue with whitening toothpastes.

    1. Hey Kat, Thats actually a great question, Sorry I didn't mention it in the post. I didn't find any sensitivity at all using this. It was such a lovely product to use I will say don't wear a nice white shirt when doing it though as you may get some of the blue bits on it but no, sensitivity wise, I had no problems. I guess because its not a whitening toothpaste with bleaches or chemicals in it to make the tooth whiter, this paste has got the blue bits in that help neutralise the yellow its and reflects the blue to make the appearance of whiter teeth.

      I hope that helped xxx

  8. It looks like you had a really good result from this! I can definitely see a difference. I'm gonna have to give this a whirl as I drink quite a bit of coffee and have a bit of yellowing from it.
    This was a lovely detailed post..I loved the grrr faced pics, they made me smile.
    Thanks for sharing and have a fab weekend!

    1. Yeah Keisha, I've tried a few teeth whitening products, all with weird tastes or pastes you have to leave on for 20 mins with a LED light in your mouth, and this is quick, easy, and its happening when I brush my teeth. I'm not a coffee drinker but you can see the yellow on my teeth and just by brushing once how the yellow didn't seem as prominent. I'd say its worth a go for anyone wanting to give their teeth a pick me up. You will have to let me know how you get on!
