Aquafresh Fresh & Minty Toothpaste
Advantages: "tastes" good, does not foam that much, fresh and minty
Disadvantages: the fresh and minty breath is not really longlasting
Care for our teeth is essential and brushing them should be done at least twice a day so when it comes to toothpastes having a quality one is important. It also says so on this toothpaste's directions.
I am not particularly faithful to a certain brand (at the moment I have two different regular toothpastes and one especially for the sensitive gums), I buy what seems healthy and economical at the time of shopping. This one was on a special offer in my local store and since I have good experience with this brand I bought it.
It comes in a box, naturally. It is blue with a big Aquafresh logo on it, can't say it all looks appealing, can't say it does not. A regular toothpaste box, it feels clean.
The tube is quite big, it's a 125ml one, the one I bought. I did not see any smaller ones when I was buying it but a quick search on the net revealed this one comes in smaller tubes also.
It is a 3 coloured toothpaste, each of the colours being visibly separated form each other - this always intrigued me, how they make this work and I said to myself a 100 times I will, once I empty the tube, tear it apart to see how this works but I never did this - if any of you have feel free to enlighten me with your comment, I will appreciated it.
Each colour is supposed to have it's own function in this toothpaste - or at least the toothpaste is marketed in this way.
Red colour allegedly takes care of your gums keeping them healthy. This I can confirm, well or I can confirm it does not harm them. I have very sensitive gums, they do not bleed or something but whenever there is a change in my diet, if for some reason I can't get enough veggies and fruits it will show on my gums a.s.a.p.. It is the same when I use a bad toothpaste. My gums are "satisfied" with this toothpaste, they are strong and look healthy when I use it.
This one should keep your teeth strong. Well they did not fall out when I used it :). I can't say they are getting any stronger when I use this toothpaste but they certainly are clean. After brushing they have a smooth clean feel to them.
Fresh breath. This toothpaste does leave a very fresh and slightly minty feel in your mouth and your breath is the same. But can't say that it lasted really long. I mean you don't exactly have a bad breath but the freshness is gone quite soon.
***All in all***
A decent toothpaste, I like it enough to buy it again in the future. When I brush my teeth with it it does not sting as some toothpastes are known to, it has a slightly minty taste to it. It does not foam much which I do like, you do not have to spit out often (I hate doing that). You do not need to apply to much on the toothbrush either.
Summary: A decent toothpaste
