I went through a phase of wanting to try as many whitening toothpastes as I could. This one is exclusive to Boots. The toothpaste comes in a tube with a foil seal for freshness. The toothpaste is easy to work with as it's rich and creamy. The toothpaste tastes minty and fresh. It foams up well inside the mouth and it manages to get into all of those annoying hard to reach places. It feels nice inside the mouth and it's easy to brush with. It leaves my mouth feeling clean and fresh and my breath is much fresher too. After using the toothpaste for three weeks I noticed that my teeth appeared cleaner and brighter but they still had stains on them. I didn't really see the whitening effect that this toothpaste promised and that's false advertising. The toothpaste promises whiter teeth within two weeks but I didn't see this. Yes, my teeth felt healthier, but they weren't any whiter in my opinion. The toothpaste is good value though as it lasts ages and it keeps well. It contains anti bacterial ingredients that help to control plaque and tartar build up. You can use the toothpaste on both manual and electric toothbrushes. I have used it on both and it works well on both in my opinion. A good cleaning toothpaste but I couldn't see any whitening results, sorry Boots.
I enjoy trying new toothpastes and I rarely stay loyal to one brand, tending to switch and swap different types, according to special offers which may be on at the time. One of the most recent toothpastes we have been trying lately in our house is Boot's own brand Expert Sensitive Toothpaste. The reason we bought this was because it was on a three for two offer. Each tube contains 100ml of toothpaste and retails at £3.75 per tube but as it was on an offer we got three tubes at the same time (plus our Advantage points). I am always looking out for a toothpaste which can possibly lighten or brighten my teeth at the same time as giving them a good clean and freshening my breath. I have really sensitive teeth though and when I eat hot or cold drinks or food I can really feel the pain as it shoots through my mouth. I htought this might do the trick as I have tried all sorts of toothpastes in the past to try to erradicate the problem of my sensitive teeth. The packaging of this toothpaste is fairly plain, with a white back ground and the picture of a smiling lady on the front. The toothpaste is a good thick consistency, holds onto he toothbrush well and is plain white in colour, as you would expect. So far, no different from any other toothpaste I have used, really. I like this toothpaste because although I can actually feel it is cleaning my teeth well and removing stains, I also feel it is gentle and not too abrasive, and it has a great fresh minty taste to it. As well as helping with sensitivity, this toothpaste also fights plaque, helps with tartar control and freshens my breath. It has a pleasant minty taste, which isn't too strong and I feel it leaves my breath smelling nice for several hours after I have cleaned my teeth. I also personally like this toothpaste as it doesn't foam too much in my mouth once it has mixed with my saliva, and thus, it does not cause me to gag, as I have found with some other types of toothpastes I have used in the past. Overall, I really do rate this toothpaste very highly. I have been impressed since I have been using it that I am finding my teeth are actually a lot less sensitive than they were before, added to this is the fact that they also look a lot brighter , cleaner and whiter than they were before, and the fresh breath feeling is jst a great added bonus. Very much recommended for cleaner, brighter whiter teeth and help with sensitivity.
I used to be a bit of a whitening toothpaste addict, spending a fortune, and not getting any results apart from sensitive teeth and thinned enamel, so i stopped with them because they weren't improving the appearance of my smile at all, and i switched back to the more traditional type toothpaste. I started using this particular one a few days ago, i got back from uni and it was all my mum had in. Because i've only been using this product a few days i can't really comment on the effectiveness of it's stain removal/whitening ability, so this is more about the way it leaves your teeth feeling and the cleaning ability. Firstly, there is very little foaming with this toothpaste, it doesn't really do anything once it's on the brush and in your mouth, just kind of swishes about and clumps up in the saliva, so my teeth didn't really feel clean like when you work up a good frothy mouth clean. Secondly, it has very little taste, it is subtley minty but thats all, so if you're brushing your teeth wanting to mask any smells then look for something else. Also after brushing my teeth with this at night time, the next day my morning breath was horrific! I just had a terrbile taste in my mouth as if i hadn't brushed my teeth at all! i would definitely not reccommend this toothpaste, perhaps with long term use it is good for whitening but that's if you can bare the bad taste left in your mouth and lack of that squeaky clean feeling you can get with other products
*Britons are ruining their teeth* Or so it would seem from the general availability of sensitive toothpaste on Bromley high street shelves! I was unfortunate enough to have to visit three branches of Boots before I was able to track down this cheaper than brand name sensitive whitening toothpaste. Hey, I suppose I should count myself lucky that Bromley is able to support that many branches of Boots to begin with? A recent visit to the dentist left me with a bitter taste in my mouth after I was advised that I needed to abandon fizzy drinks to all intents and purposes. I'd been getting some sensitivity in my molars, as well as pronounced acid damage to my front teeth. As anyone who's read some of my reviews should know, I'm somewhat badly behaved when it comes to chucking caffeinated fizzy drinks down my throat and this is proving a tough habit to beat. Regardless, I needed some toothpaste that would help clean up my stained nashers! *Availability, cost and value for money* As a Boots own brand, this is only available in their larger high street shores and on their website, www.boots.com, where it retails at £2.99 a tube. This is slightly cheaper than branded products such as those produced by Sensodyne (another product that it seems nigh on impossible to find in Bromley). I've been using it for two weeks now and think that I may just about be able to stretch it to the end of the month, so it's fairly good value for money. That said, I do sometimes brush my teeth three times a day, so will get through it faster than most people. *What does it claim to do?* I like the Boots Expert products' branding, as it treats the purchaser like an adult - explaining the science of what it does and closing with a cheery line. In this case it explains all about receding gums and dentine before saying that you can get back to 'enjoying all your favourite things with a dazzling smile not a sharp wince'. In essence it promises to clean, protect and whiten. *Does it make good on the promises?* I've no complaints about the product. It works as well as other, branded versions of sensitive whitening toothpastes and is serving me well. My teeth are certainly less yellow than when I started using it (curse you brewed coffee!) and although the transition has been gradual, this is only to be expected. It foams well during use and you feel that you're getting a good, thorough clean around all the hard to reach parts of your mouth. Sensitivity has genuinely improved and that's another claim that can be ticked off the list. The taste is pleasant and fresh and as the toothpaste is quite gentle I don't feel that I'm scrubbing at my teeth. So, all is well. Now if I can only beat my caffeine addiction... *Packaging etc.* All ingredients are clearly listed, as are contact details for Boots and the URL for a website where further comments about the product are invited. The packaging is a clean looking white, with blue text and a small photograph of a dazzling set of teeth. With any luck, that'll be me in a few months!
