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?
