Aquafresh extreme clean pure breath whitening comes in a tube with a white plastic lid, contents 100ml. The price varies on where you buy it. Mine was on special offer in Asda for £1, which I thought was a very good deal.
I like the packaging, there is Aquafresh logo and a red, white and blue swirl of toothpaste which indicates that the product is a combination of cleaning, freshening and whitening.
The consistency is good with not too much lather and yes, my teeth felt clean and smooth after using it. After one week, I definitely felt that my teeth were cleaner and a couple of stains on my front teeth had almost gone.
To be honest, I'm not keen on the taste, though. It's quite strong and a bit lemon-y. This reminds me a bit of washing up liquid. The taste seemed to last for ages and I didn't really like it. I much prefer spearmint. As for 'pure breath', well, it was ok but I've had better results with toothpastes which contain baking soda.
All in all, I was a little disappointed and much preferred the original Aquafresh. I loved the 'oxygen' Aquafresh but cannot find this anywhere!
Overall, I could tell it was a quality product but perhaps it didn't really suit me.
It's quite difficult to make brushing your teeth interesting, it is just one of those jobs that have to be done unless you want to lose them all! I try and inject a little burst of interest by changing the make of toothpaste that we use, generally to what ever is on special offer at our local Morrisons. this has been the case with Aquafresh extreme clean, the pure breath version that comes in a very shiny silver and gold packaging.
The first time that I used it I really got quite a shock having been using the rather bland Oral B 1 2 3 for a few weeks. But it was a pleasant shock and certainly woke me up.
The rather flashy packaging has the Aquafresh logo on a silver background showing the tri coloured paste of white with red and blue stripes in it.Under the logo it says extreme clean and on the right hand side of the cardboard packaging the colour turns to gold with white lettering saying pure breath, for a pure breath sensation that lasts. On the side we are told that Aquafresh extreme clean pure breath toothpaste goes beyond freshening to purify your breath. I particularly like this idea as we like garlic and other strong foods and this might help us not to repel close friends and family.
It also says that it is like a boost of confidence in a tube, and we could all do with that occasionally. It promotes healthy teeth and gums and fresh breath. there is no mention of any whitening agent but I have found that these never work for me any way!
Use and opinion.
The tube itself basically mimics the box in it's design, the top is a white screw on which is quite large, so cannot fall down our stupid designer plug hole when the plug is out as have other smaller tops, (sigh), I personally like the type of top that attaches to the tube as this can avert a domestic quarrel in dawns early light as to where the toothpaste top has gone, but this is a good second. We are advised to brush our teeth twice a day and not more than three times a day and to spit out and not to swallow. Discontinue use if it starts to irritate your mouth and always supervise children of 6 years and under. I think this is due to the fact that it contains sodium fluoride..
The paste itself is very white with red and a bright green stripe in it, (not blue as show on the packaging). The consistency is good not too soft or too hard and a little bit goes a long way and certainly froths up well. The taste is a strong one, bicarbonate of soda and a mintiness too and it gives the mouth quite a tingle. It does not leave white rings around the mouth as other brands have done and I find that is does leave a tingle and clean feel in my mouth.
Aquafresh says that it is a micro active foaming toothpaste and leaves your teeth feeling very clean I have now been using it for over three weeks and can say that it has a rather strong refreshing taste but does indeed leave your mouth feeling very clean. I now like the taste having got over my initial surprise and will be quite happy to continue using it and shall look out for it on special offer again. I can also see that this might be too strong for some people's taste and that maybe children would not like it but for me it is great.
My tube contains 100ml in a recyclable tube and the contents last 12months when opened, I bought it at 1/3 off in Morrisons, our prices in Gibraltar are a bit high due to transport but it is selling for 1.90pounds at Tesco according to their website.
5 out of 5 stars from me.
Thanks for reading my review which may also be posted on Ciao under splishsplash.
I tend to change toothpast quite often always being led by a new product on the market or special offers wherever I am buying. However, I do tend to lean towards whitening products and so when I last bought toothpaste at Asda I bought two packs of Aquafresh extreme clean pure breath plus whitening toothpaste as it was on offer at two packs for three pounds I believe. This is my review of the product.
The Aquafresh extreme clean pure breath plus whitening toothpaste really stood out to me on the shelf with the other toothpastes because it comes in a shiny silver box which just seemed to sparkle. On the box there is the Aquafresh name as well as the product name and the three stripes of toothpaste that Aquafresh use as their logo. We are told that this toothpaste will give 80% cleaner, purer breath compared to using a zinc free toothpaste. Apparently the toothpaste boasts a micro active foaming formula which purifies your breath, whitens your teeth and leaves you with a feeling of clean like no other. The claims sounded good to me and it was enough to have me purchase the toothpaste.
Inside the box there is a 100ml tube of toothpaste which features a shiny silver tube and a white cap. I like the way the tube looks the same as the box to be honest and there is good brand identity throughout with the Aquafresh logo present on the tube too. I tend to prefer pump toothpastes more than tubes just for their ease of use and the way they can stand on the sink and not look messy! This tube isn't too bad though and looks ok in the bathroom.
Taking off the screw top lid you can smell a strong minty fragrance which reminds me a little of the smell you get when you first bite an airwaves chewing gum! You can tell that this toothpaste is going to be a strong flavour and although it is suitable for children aged six years and above I do buy a different, less strong, toothpaste for my son because he thinks the smell of this one is too much and to be honest I think he is right.
Squeezing the toothpaste on to my brush is nice and easy. It is the standard looking Aquafresh formula which is white with red and blue stripes through it. I run a little water over the toothpaste before brushing my teeth as I do with any other type too. The taste of this toothpaste is really strong and again I would liken it a bit to the taste of airwaves that you inititally get when you bite in to the chewing gum. It almost feels as though there is a cold breeze in your mouth as you brush. The taste for me is fine, though it is very strong I like the way that it feels as though I am really giving my teeth and mouth a good clean. I wouldn't like my son to use this toothpaste now though as he is only eight and I think it would be too much and would potentially put him off brushing his teeth. The toothpaste does foam in your mouth as you brush but I don't find this off putting at all. I find the extra formula makes it easier to brush my teeth to be honest. There is plenty to spit out when you are done though and you are advised to to minimize swallowing where possible.
When I have brushed my teeth with this product I really do feel as though my mouth has had such a good clean. My teeth feel smooth and my mouth just generally feels really fresh and clean. Whilst I appreciate this is the point of all toothpastes with this one my mouth feels so much better than when I use another kind of toothpaste. I do feel it makes my breath feel purer too and although this fresh feeling doesn't last all that long I do think it makes a good start and finish to the day to be honest. In terms of the whitening qualities I do think that when I have first brushed my teeth with this my teeth appear brighter and more white but this doesn't seem to last all day and is more a temporary effect just after brushing much like the pure breath aspect is too. Despite this I do still really rate this toothpaste because I love the way my mouth feels when I have used this and I know that it will really freshen my mouth up should I need it to throughout the day. You are advised to only brush twice a day though with this, and no more than three times a day.
You have twelve months from opening to use this toothpaste but I am sure everyone would use a single tube of toothpaste quicker than that anyway!
I do recommend this toothpaste for adults looking for a strong toothpaste that will really make your mouth and teeth feel clean. I will certainly buy it again but I will probably also continue trying other products too to see if I can find anything better!
Thank you for reading my review!
When it comes to toothpaste I don't find myself being particularly loyal to any one brand, although it does invariably seem to be Colgate toothastes I purchase most often. This I feel is due to the large range of toothpaste they produce and because they are usually the ones on price promotion offers when I am looking to purchase some. Indeed just lately, I have acquired both green and purple coloured toothpastes with crystals and what not all promising to do wonderful things for your teeth and was wondering how on earth we got by years back without all these different toothpastes.
A couple of weeks back I was picking up some shopping at my local Morrisons when I noticed it was the turn of Aquafresh oral care products to be on a promotional offer. Now not being particularly loyal to any one brand as I said before and Aquafresh being a brand I have used many times over the years, the fact the toothpaste was cheaper than Colgate and other brands due to the promotion, meant it was going to be the one I purchased on this occasion, but which one to choose?
Just as with Colgate, there now seemed to be a number of different Aquafresh toothpastes to choose from in their 'Extreme Clean' range, with Whitening Action, Deep Action, Pure Breath Action and Revitalizing Action toothpaste, just so you can find one to meet your exact needs, which to be honest both confuses me and amuses me at the same time. Why do we need so many different ones? Is it not possible to combine teeth cleaning, whitening, breath freshening etc all in one tube? Indeed I thought this was the point of 'Total care' toothpastes a couple of years back, but now the trend seems to be to have all different toothpastes for different aspects of dental care.
Not wanting to ponder over this for too long, I purchased what I thought was 'Deep Action' for no reason in particular I have to say, other than it seemed to be the one which combined most things. However, when I got home, I realised I had in fact purchased the 'Pure Breath' variety which shows how much notice I was actually taking at the time!
It wasn't a problem however, as I really wasn't all that fussed which one I bought in the first place.
Aquafresh Pure Breath Action has mineral formula helps to neutralize bad breath odors for 80% cleaner, purer breath. It was Voted Product of the Year, Consumer Survey of Product Innovation 2013.
Aquafresh state their toothpaste delivers on an extreme feeling of clean by delivering bad breath germ-killing bubbles every time you brush.
I paid £1 for a 100 ml tube which isn't a bad price at all due to the offer.
When I think of Aquafresh toothpaste I always think of it being red, white and blue striped with a soft minty taste, as that as how it has always been over the years I have used it and this Pure Breath edition is not much different. It still has the striped toothpaste, however the blue stripe appears to have been replaced with green on this product. It also has a stronger minty taste than I have experienced with other Aquafresh toothpastes.
Aquafresh state their pure breath toothpaste goes beyond freshening to purify your breath. This is a micro-active foaming toothpaste which will leave you with a pure breath sensation that lasts and a feeling of clean like no other. They describe it as "A boost of confidence in a tube."
You are advised to brush twice a day and not more than three times. I generally brush my teeth two to three times a day, depending on whether I am at work or not.
I noticed right away when using this toothpaste for the first time that it does indeed have a slight foaming action when you begin brushing your teeth. It has a pleasant minty taste and feels nice and smooth whilst brushing.
I have been using this toothpaste on a daily basis since my purchase and have to say it is a good product to use, it cleans my teeth and freshens my breath so no complaints from me there. I cannot say however, that the "pure breath sensation" lasts a long time, nor does it offer me an experience like no other. I found my mouth felt fresh and I could still taste the minty sensation for an hour or so after brushing if I didn't eat or drink anything in that time, but overall it was not really any different from any other toothpaste I have used recently to be honest.
Aquafresh Extreme Clean Pure Breath toothpaste is one I will be happy to buy again, but I will stick to buying whatever is the cheapest out of the brands I trust, as I really can't tell much difference between them at all. As long as it cleans and protects my teeth and freshens my breath then I am satisfied and whilst this toothpaste certainly delivers on all counts, it doesn't offer anything different to other decent brands.
