Aquafresh - Fresh and minty:
Right well as I seem to keep writing reviews that show how much sugar I seem to consume I decided it was time to write a review showing how I do actually care for my teeth. Though I am a devout Coca Cola consumer I did have to wear a brace for three years and my oral hygiene is a prominent part of my morning and evening rituals. Coca cola consumption being a mid morning to late afternoon affair.
Well Aquafresh being a well known product makes me pretty sure that you all know what it looks like. But for all the people who do not, it comes in a tube which is about 20cm long and is bright blue. It comes in a Cardboard box which states exactly the same information as the tube itself.
Now the tube is a bright blue colour with a white screw top lid. It has a picture of the toothpaste itself on the front, which shows the red white and blue colours of the toothpaste. It also has a little chart next to that which shows you which each colour represents and what it does.
Red - promotes healthy gums
White - strong teeth
Blue - Freshens breath.
Now let's face it other than these 3 key points what else are we really looking for in toothpaste? If you have sensitive teeth you would clearly go for toothpaste that is created to suit your set problem but if you're fortunate enough to drink what you want without pain then Aquafresh would really suit you.
The tube also states that it helps block out plaque acid and lock in vital minerals, so it you used this toothpaste continuously maybe the need for sensitive teeth toothpaste would not be needed. I have used Aquafresh for 22 years. It is a brand that my mother trusts and something that has passed down to me. I have no fillings, no sensitive teeth and as of yet no wisdom teeth to speak of. I did have to wear a brace but purely because I sucked my thumb and my front teeth bucked forward.
The tube is 75ml and is recyclable. It contains all the contact information you could ever need on the back which includes there website www.aquafresh.co.uk. The tube advises that you brush your teeth twice daily. It also advises that children under 6 use a smaller dosage (a pea-sized amount) to prevent swallowing and intake of Fluroide and that they are monitored whilst brushing their teeth. Now I was quite switched on as a child, but I do remember leaving slug sized trails of toothpaste in the sink from squeezing the tube to hard so it's not completely bad advice.
Now the second you undo the screw top lid your nostrils are greeted by a nice strong smell of mint. This is encouraging in itself as that's how you would like your breath to smell. After applying a dollop to your toothbrush you get to see the red, white and blue colouring in all its glory.
Now you do not need a lot of this product to make it last and cover your whole mouth. After about 5 minutes of brushing it leaves your breath minty fresh and your teeth nice and smooth. I would say the freshness lasts for a few hours or at least up until you eat or drink something. Though the freshness does fade it does not leave your breath smelling horrible.
I would recommend Aquafresh to anyone as it does its job and it works well. To be honest humans are but simple creatures and all we really want are healthy teeth and gums and breath that smells like our insides are made of after 8 mints. My only wish is that Aquafresh make a chewing gum for use during the day when we are away from our toothbrushes. All in all an excellent product. 5/5.
