I received a free sample of aquafresh ultimate toothpaste in a mini tube alongside a money-off coupon after filling in a form online. Ordinarily the full size 75ml version costs £1.79 and can be bought from typical shops such as Boots, Superdrug, Tesco and Waitrose. This is a slightly smaller size than the usual 100ml tube so unless the toothpaste is on offer its not great value for money.
Like most toothpastes it comes packaged in a squeezy tube with a simple bright blue design decorated with the aquafresh logo and some useful information including how to use it and a list of ingredients. The small size of the mini tube makes it ideal for travelling. However, unlike most toothpaste the flip-open lid also acts as a stand enabling the tube to be stored upright and making sure the toothpaste is always pushed down so making it easier to get out. The toothpaste itself is white with red and blue stripes and nice smooth texture.
The Aquafresh Ultimate Toothpaste claims to provide "whole tooth protection strengthening the tooth above the gum line and protecting vulnerable areas by killing bacteria to keep the gum seal tight and healthy". This quite appealed to me as it is reassuring to know a toothpaste is protecting the areas you can't see or reach below the gum as well as those you can. In order to achieve this the directions advise using a pea-sized amount twice daily.
I love the taste of this toothpaste as the mint flavour is really strong and intense so it leaves a really fresh, clean feeling in the mouth. The initial burst of mintyness wears off rapidly but the fresh feeling stays for quite a while after brushing and leaves you with fresh breath. Another great aspect is that it lathers up really well and so just a small amount spreads around the mouth nicely. I haven't had any trouble with my teeth at all and my gums actually feel healthier since using it so I've no complaints. It has also maintained a nice shiny quality to my teeth which I wasn't expecting.
Overall I am impressed with the results I've had from using this toothpaste after just a few weeks. My teeth feel and look great and even my gums seem to be healthy so I'll definitely be buying my own full size tube in the near future.
Obviously, toothpaste is a hygiene essential but I'm not loyal to any particular brand. I bought this toothpaste after signing up online and receiving a free sample. I kept the sample for travelling and used the accompanying coupon to purchase a full-size toothpaste - these normally retail for about £1.99.
Aquafresh really stands out from other toothpastes on the shelf as it stands on its lid. This makes it much easier to get the toothpaste out. Also, the tube seems to be made of a slightly different plastic to other toothpaste tubes - when I finally finished the tube there didn't seem to be a scrap of toothpaste left inside.
The tube is bright blue and contains relevant information about the toothpaste. It is made by GlaxoSmithKline and is designed to provide "whole tooth protection" - strengthening the tooth above the gum line and killing bacteria to keep the gum seal tight and healthy.
The toothpaste comes out like 'cartoon toothpaste' - it has the familiar white, blue and red stripes. I'm very intrigued as to how they manage to get the stripes to come out like this, especially as the effect lasted until the toothpaste ran out!
As for using the toothpaste - well, it just worked like any other toothpaste. I put some on my toothbrush and cleaned my teeth. My teeth felt perfectly clean after each use It's always hard to judge the effectiveness of toothpaste as you can't exactly see bacteria on your teeth, but I've experienced no problems using this and have no reason to disbelieve its claims. One thing I will point out is that the minty flavour is very strong - this is good if you like that sort of thing but if you prefer a milder toothpaste this is probably one to avoid.
This toothpaste is a bit pricey compared to some brands on the market, though no more expensive than many. Two things in its favour (in my opinion) are the strong minty taste and the packaging which mean you can use up almost every scrap of the toothpaste and it's much easier to get out. I probably wouldn't pay full price for it but I'd be happy to buy it again if it was on special offer.
Aquafresh Ultimate Toothpaste - prices for 75 ml range from £1 to £2.39 so shop around
As with all Aquafresh toothpastes this one has the three distinctive strips - sold as fighting cavities, making breath smell fresh, and fighting plaque. The tube does come in a size that is smaller than many but for the package the product does seem to pack a nice enough punch.
It lathers well, and does not have that grainy feel that some toothpastes have (for me this is important as it strangely puts my teeth on edge, like fingernails on a blackboard)... The toothpaste is sold as being whitening, which now seems to be fairly standard in most toothpastes. I haven't notice any particulr difference however the tooth pastes that I always use are whitening so all the good that a toothpaste can do may have already been done.
This particular toothpaste is sold as strengthening your teeth above and below the gum line. It is supposed to bacteria and leave breath fresh. I can comment about how strong or not my teeth are however I can say that this toothpaste does leave my mouth feeling nice and minty fresh directly after use. The fresh feeling does last well and although the 'minty' of the breath does wear off but the freshness lasts really well.
This is one of my favourite toothpastes and although it may come in a slightly smaller tube than some others of a similar price it really does what it says it should.
I have always brought branded toothpastes but normally purchase whichever is on offer. To be honest toothpaste is one product which actually baffles me a little, there are so many different ones all claiming to do different things that it leaves me feeling confused about which is the best for my teeth. Aquafresh is one brand of toothpaste which my parents always purchased when I lived at home and one which I have occasionally purchased too so when I spotted the Aquafresh Ultimate toothpaste on a half price special offer in Tesco I thought I would give it a try.
The Aquafresh toothpaste is made by the pharmaceutical giant GlaxoSmithKline and comes in two different types one of which has added whitening. As I am always anxious about the colour of my teeth as I have not been blessed with sparkling white ones then I opted for the one with added whitening. The toothpaste comes in a 75ml tube and cost £1.00 at the time which it said was a half price special offer.
As far as the packaging is concerned I was quite surprised that this toothpaste just simply comes in its plastic tube with no outer cardboard box which is normally standard packaging for toothpaste. This made me quite impressed as in my opinion as long as there is a seal on the tube I really do not see the need for the addition of a box so it was nice to see an item not excessively packaged. The tube is white and blue in colour with a flip top lid which the toothpaste stands on. The front of the tube has the Aquafresh name across the front as well as signature red, white and blue stripe which represents the colour of the toothpaste inside which Aquafresh is well known for. There is also a diagram of a tooth with it stating that the toothpaste offers whole tooth protection which for me is always good to know as sometimes with whitening toothpastes I worry that it sacrifices other important components that protect my teeth. On the back of the tube you can find more detailed information about the toothpaste including how the toothpaste works, directions for use and ingredient listings.
The first time you open the toothpaste you will notice a small foil seal covering the nozzle which you need to simply pull off. This ensures that the toothpaste has not been opened before or tampered with especially as it is not sealed in a box. It is easy to dispense the toothpaste by simply squeezing the tube to get the perfectly striped toothpaste out. I have always loved the Aquafresh stripes and am still slightly intrigued as to how they manage to get it to work so well come out in perfect stripes. The toothpaste as a lovely minty fresh fragrance and taste with it leaving my mouth feeling very fresh but it is not too strong. I use an electric toothbrush so only find that I need to use a small amount of the toothpaste to get a good amount of froth. After using my teeth feel lovely and clean and look quite sparkly.
I will say that I have not noticed a huge difference with the whitening aspect of the toothpaste, if any difference at all. But this toothpaste does leave my teeth and mouth feeling very fresh and this freshness does last a good few hours. I have also found that since using this toothpaste my gums feel and look healthier which I have been impressed with as it does state on the tube that it helps to keep the gum seal tight to stop bacteria from entering.
Overall I think this is a great toothpaste from Aquafresh, the whitening aspect could be slightly improved but the most important thing is that it helps my teeth remain healthy and gives me a clean fresh feeling mouth. This is certainly a toothpaste I would purchase again and would recommend anyone to try.
I am not particularly brand loyal when it comes to buying toothpaste products for my household, although I have one or two favourites in the 'Colgate' brand that I will purchase regularly. I was pleased when I recently got a free sample (75ml tube) of a new toothpaste launched by the well-known "Aquafresh" brand, namely the "Aquafresh Ultimate Toothpaste - Whole Tooth Protection" and this review outlines my experience of using the product.
The packaging for the product is fairly bog-standard I must confess. Comprising of a blue-coloured tube, the product name and familiar branding appear on the front. There is a plastic blue 'flip up' cap at the bottom of the tube, underneath which there is a white nozzle to dispense the toothpaste onto your brush. This little nozzle was sealed before use, by way of a little layer of foil to keep the product completely fresh and hygienic before use. I found that the tube stood up well throughout the duration of its use, mainly thanks to the sturdy and robust nature of the plastic cab at the bottom.
The toothpaste itself looks like most other types that fall under the Aquafresh brand, comprising of a trio of colours in red, white and blue. Whilst it is a fairly attractive-looking paste, there is nothing particularly innovative about THIS product from the Aquafresh range and any others that I have used in the past, based on appearances at least.
My initial impressions of using the toothpaste were that the Ultimate Toothpaste 'foams' very easily, and slightly more so than more 'regular' or 'everyday' products. This was not particularly unpleasant, and I didn't find that the paste foamed to excess so that it felt uncomfortable or too much whilst it was being used. The paste felt quite 'gentle' whilst it was being used but this may have been down to the slightly frothy lather produced.
There is a strong taste evident from the paste when it is first dispersed around the mouth, being slightly peppermint and refreshing in its flavour. Whilst the taste of the paste is not at all unpleasant, I found that I wasn't particularly blown away by it either. It is ok, but that is about as complimentary as I feel I can be. I found it unusual that the taste seemed to die down quite soon after use, and in actual fact I found it started to 'wane' a little before I had even finished brushing my teeth or rinsing out my mouth. There was a soft hint of minty flavour to be found after use, but certainly not to the extent of other toothpaste products that I use on a regular basis.
What I DID find however, is that the Aquafresh Ultimate Paste left my mouth feeling spotlessly clean and my teeth felt pristine and sparkling. It is true to say that most other toothpaste products will achieve this effect also, but I find that the effects are not usually long-lasting. The Aquafresh Ultimate paste in comparison, left my mouth feeling fresher for MUCH longer than other toothpastes, and I felt as if my breath was fresher for longer too. This aspect alone would lead me to consider purchasing the toothpaste for my household in the future as I found the effects were so effective - and very pleasant.
I am reassured by the product name "Whole Tooth Protection" which seems quite innovative to me compared to other pastes, but also by the claims on the packaging to a certain extent, as I find the bold statement on the reverse of the tube offer a little peace of mind in terms of my oral hygiene and dental health..... "Whole tooth protection - above and below the gum line Fluoride toothpaste. Aquafresh Ultimate Whitening strengthens the tooth above the gum line and protects what's vulnerable below by killing bacteria to help keep the gum seal tight and healthy." I do like the idea of the whole tooth being protected by using the product, and of course the fluoride contained in the product offers further reassurance regarding my dental health.
As @ the time of writing, (September 2012), you can purchase the 75ml tube of Aquafresh Ultimate Toothpaste from Superdrug and some supermarkets although the price seems to fluctuate greatly, so you can expect to pay anywhere between £1.20 - £2.40 for the tube. There is also a "Whitening" version of the paste available in various stores such as Asda, although I have recently seen this for sale in a local branch of 'Poundland' so would suggest trying here first.
I'd award the product full marks because not only was the paste pleasant to use and tasted nice enough, but it felt surprisingly gentle to use, thanks to the gentle foam-like lather produced during use. Furthermore, I thought that the paste worked very well in terms of leaving my mouth - and my breath - refreshingly minty and fresh, with results that were extremely long-lasting. I would consider purchasing the product for my household, but think it would be worth shopping around as the price is slightly more than what I would normally pay for a tube of toothpaste for my household.
I actually picked this product up by accident since some kind shopper had put the box on the shelf in the wrong place, I always buy the Aquafresh fresh and minty which was what I had been supposed to buy. The product can be bought in supermarkets and chemists but I haven't seen it in any discount stores yet so I would guess that the product is still quite new. The product costs about £2 which is for a 75ml tube.
The toothpaste comes packaged in a cardboard box which has the Aquafresh name on it with Ultimate written underneath and a picture of the toothpaste itself, there is also a little picture of an outline of a tooth and the words whole tooth protection. The tube inside the box is the same design as the box itself and it has a white screw top cap on it.
On the tube it states "Aquafresh Ultimate strengthens the tooth above the gum line and protects what's vulnerable below by killing bacteria to help keep the gum seal tight and healthy"
The instructions for use are to use twice a day and children of 6 or younger must only use a pea sized amount and be supervised whilst brushing. I personally wouldn't give this toothpaste to young children to use as the minty taste is a little too strong for me so I wouldn't expect them to be happy using this.
The toothpaste inside is the usual white in colour with red and blue stripes on it, it smells strongly of mint and I find that the flavour is very strong mint which i don't really like, the toothpaste seems to have a little gritty texture to me which is fine and it leaves my teeth feeling really clean. I find that after using this I feel that my breath is really fresh and the taste in your mouth lasts a while which isn't great if you want to eat your breakfast straight away.
I like the effect this toothpaste had on my teeth however I am going to stick with my usual Aquafresh toothpaste as the taste of this this one was just a little too strong for me.
Aquafresh has long been one of my favourite toothpastes on the market and so when I heard that they had a new product out for toothcare then I decided it was worth giving it a try but did it work as well as previous offerings from the Aquafresh range?
- This toothpaste is designed to protect the whole tooth rather than just the part we see which is hugely important as 70% of the tooth is below the gumline. The toothpaste does this in a simple yet effective way as it helps to keeps the gumline sealed.
- Great value at around £1 fairly regularly for a 75ml tube which will last for a fair few weeks.
- A simple design means that the tube stands on its lid and so there is no waste as the toothpaste is always ready to be squeezed out each and every use.
- Powerful cleaning keeps your teeth strong and white without the need to use a powerful toothpaste that burns at your mouth.
- Toothpaste is about cleaning but also about leaving your mouth feeling and smelling fresh and this is one of the best out there for doing that.
Overall this is a toothpaste which leaves teeth feeling and looking clean without the need to use powerful toothpastes that burn at your mouth for ages afterwards. The fresh feel and breath left with you even after you have finished brushing is great and not something you find in many toothpastes. I have been using this toothpaste since it first came on the market and I am happy to keep using it thanks to all of the above and also thanks to the great value to be had with the offers on this regularly available.
==Aquafresh Ultimate + Whitening==
I has been a while now since I have written the review for Aquafresh Ultimate Original Toothpaste, & I said that that could not be beaten but I was astounded when I found how good this product was! The Original Version of Aquafresh Ultimate I said cleaned really brilliantly & was cheap enough with the coupon I recieved. I also said how great the taste & aftertaste was, how it foamed brilliantly (& that was for a normal toothbrush), how the product also looked stylish & would not look out of place in an Aqua Blue Bathroom. So when I found a more advanced version of my (now) beloved toothpaste, I just had to try it!
==Style & Price==
Coming in a white tube with a light blue background, this product looks a lot different from the Original Version. It has the same picture of the tooth with the all important 'Aquafresh' & the 'Ultimate + Whitening' logos place halfway down the tube. Overall the design looks really nice as the tube stands on it's side & dosen't topple over easily. The tube size is 75ml. I payed 99p in B&M Bargains for this & they also had the Original Version in there too. I have seen it as much as £2.50 for the same tube in the Supermarket.
Aquafresh Ultimate + Whitening claims to:
Clean on top & below the tooth, giving you 100% protection.
Gives extreme whiteness aswell as proper protection.
Leaves your mouth feeling clean, fresh & minty.
I used an electric toothbrush this time around so was able to comment on that. I put a little squirt on my toothbrush & then turned it on. Whilst the brush was scrubbing around my teeth, I could see from the view in the mirror that the toothpaste was foaming brilliantly in my mouth & hopefully living up to it's claims! Well, I didn't have to worry, as the toothpaste lived up to every single one of it's claims! It foamed nicely (as mentioned earlier in the review) It cleaned brilliantly, leaving my teeth nice & white! The toothpaste also whitened my teeth brilliantly & left a fresh after taste in my mouth!
For 99p first of all the Toothpaste represents excellent value for money! Secondly for 99p the product also cleans my teeth brillaintly & leaves them feeling clean! Thirdly there are plenty of Advantages & No Disadvantages!
I rate this product a generous 5 Stars!
'''Thanks for Reading!'''
I never really buy a favourite toothpaste when I go to the supermarket, Just whatever sounds good and is a reasonable price. I am also a bit of a bargain hunter so when I saw there was a free sample of Aquafresh Ultimate to be had I quickly requested one! I was extremely impressed with this toothpaste and have since chosen it over others (even though it wasn't the cheapest!). Samples are still available here >>>http://aquafreshproducts.co.uk/ultimate/claim.html
Aquafresh is a well known and reputable toothpaste brand that has been around for many years, this new product Aquafresh Ultimate is a recent addition to their collection and in my opinion the best so far. The product come in a small long and rounded tube with flick on and off plastic lid. The tube is a nice icy blue colour with large branding on the front along with a tooth that demonstrates how the toothpaste cleans better than others on the market. I have only seen the tubes in 75ml sizes so far, so not the largest but a nice compact tube of paste ideal for home and travel.
The toothpaste to look at is Aquafresh's usual red, blue and white striped pattern.
Aquafresh claims that this toothpaste "helps strengthen the 30% of your teeth you can see and protect the 70% you can't, by helping to keep the gum seal tight and healthy - you can rest assured that you are helping to take care of your loved one's teeth".
This is a Flouride toothpaste.
I use a small pea sized amount of the paste on my brush and add some water and brush continuously for about 2/3 minutes. The taste of the toothpaste is not overpoweringly minty, but very refreshing which I like. It really feels like it is cleaning my teeth and almost polish like whilst brushing, my breath and mouth feels refreshed and most importantly very clean. My only disappointment with this toothpaste is that it doesn't have whitening in it which I could really do with. I would definitely buy this product again, I can really tell the difference from other pastes I have used, this is a much more deep clean.
I'm not brand loyal and will happily buy the Tesco Value range until it comes to toothpaste then I like to buy what I consider will be a good quality one. I recently had a free sample of Aquafresh Ultimate and not one to turn a freebie down I decided to try it.
Aquafrsh Ultimate is advertised as giving "whole tooth protection" It will clean and strengthen the tooth above the gum line and protect what's below it by killing bacteria and keeping the gum nice and tight around the tooth.
My tube is 75mls which is currently selling on Amazon for £2.50.
The tube is mainly blue with a flip top lid which I like as it never goes missing and is always replaced. It has the Aquafresh logo across the front. It informs the customer that it is Aquafresh Ultimate and offers whole tooth protection. The back of the tube gives directions for use which is the standard advice of brushing twice daily. Children under 6yrs should be supervised while using this product. The tube also gives a list of ingredients.
Aquafresh Ultimate has the usual red white and blue stripes running through it and in the tube doesn't really smell very minty. When I squeezed a small amount on my finger it has a slightly sandy feel to it. This is very slight and isn't obvious when brushing your teeth.
I have found that this toothpaste has a strange taste when using it to brush your teeth, its not very minty and has a slightly strange taste which I wasn't expecting. However once I had finished brushing my teeth the fresh minty taste really came through.
I have found that Aquafresh Ultimate cleans my teeth as well as any good quality toothpaste but no better. It leaves my teeth feeling smooth and clean and my mouth and breath is minty fresh. As for the whole tooth protection, well I suspect it would take a while of using this to really see if this statement is correct.
All I would say is that Aquafresh Ultimate is a good toothpaste that cleans my teeth and freshens my mouth very well and if its doing some good work below the gum line that's a bonus. Its not the best tasting toothpaste when you are using it but it gives a nice minty burst afterwards. Overall I would recommend giving it a try.
