I bought this toothpaste for a pound which is much cheaper than the rest of the Colgate range and similar competing toothpastes from other brands and this was what attracted me to the product in the first place. It is a simple white paste with no stripes or glittery bits it in - just straight forward toothpaste. It feels much lighter in your mouth than some of the gel varieties which is nice however my main problem with it is that it is not particularly minty. I find myself using more of it than I otherwise would to try and counter act this so a tube probably doesn't last as long as some of the other varieties would. It claims to contain baking soda but I'm not sure what difference this makes other than allowing Colgate to increase their ever expanding range of unnecessary different types of toothpaste. I haven't particularly noticed that my teeth are whiter when using this toothpaste compared to using any other. In conclusion, it is good value for a branded toothpaste however it could do with being a bit more minty in my opinion.
This is 1 of the Toothpastes that I use quite often. I don't tend to use this one all the time as I find that Whitening Toothpastes can sometimes make my Teeth that little bit sensitive so I chop and change between a Whitening one and a "normal" one. This comes in a 100ml tube and I think in Asda this can cost around £1.70 but there is often a 2 for £3 offer on that's when I stock up a little. May as well get things a little cheaper. When you open the tube you smell a pretty strong Minty scent and it is a Cool scent. It smells nice and I felt that this would leave my mouth nice and fresh. It is a Peppermint, which I like more than a Spearmint. When you put some of this onto your Toothpaste you can't see any of the Baking Soda bits in it, but when you start to brush with this then you can feel a slight grit from this paste and it seems that there is quite a few grains in this paste. The idea is that Baking Soda is a good ingredient to help get rid of stains. Do I find that this seems to Whiten my Teeth? I don't really feel that it does. There is no noticible difference in my view anyway but I do feel that this does clean deep down and my teeth feel clean and have a sheen to them too. The Minty taste does die down a bit but you are left with a Minty taste in your mouth for a good while afterwards. 1 of my favourite Deep Clean Toothpastes and this can be bought at an alright price as well.
It was when I was stocking up on a few household toiletries in my local branch of 'Savers' discounted drugstore that I noticed the assorted brands of toothpaste and oral hygiene items. One of the items that I decided to buy from this range was the 'Colgate Deep Clean Whitening Toothpaste with Baking Soda". I paid only £1 for the tube of Colgate toothpaste which is 100ml in size and I thought this was reasonable value for money, especially given my previous toothpaste purchase had cost me around £3. The design of the toothpaste tube for this particular product is pretty generic in its overall look and design. The name of the product is printed quite clearly on the side of the tube. There is a sort of 'flip up' plastic cap on top of the tube which can be flipped back down after use to prevent the toothpaste from drying out. When it came to using the toothpaste I thought that it looked quite generic in comparison to many of the other brands that I buy on a regular basis. There was nothing that looked different about this brand over any other brand, and it is basically just a smooth, white-coloured paste. There is no colour or 'bits' throughout the toothpaste. The paste is a thick consistency as you would expect and it squeezed from the tube onto my toothbrush quite easily. The taste of the Colgate toothpaste is one that I thought was quite pleasant; a sort of fresh peppermint flavour was evident whilst I was using the toothpaste and it was not overly strong that I felt it was harsh or abrasive. Nor did it leave any sort of 'stinging' sensation in my mouth or throat after I had finished using it. The toothpaste foams quite nicely when it is added to water and brushed along my teeth, although not in a way that leaves me feeling like I am going to gag, such is the rather mild level of effervescence achieved. I found that the paste felt quite gentle on my teeth and not at all abrasive or harsh. The texture too was pleasant enough and I didn't feel it was 'chalky' in its consistency which is a trait of certain toothpastes that I have come across before. I must admit that I find chalky-like toothpastes are quite off-putting and they make me gag so I was pleased that this particular Colgate paste didn't seem to have this horrible effect on me. I was interested to see if the product would live up to the claims it made on the reverse of the tube, particularly the claims referring to the stain-removing properties of this particular toothpaste which are as a result of the Baking Soda being added to this paste's formula. I have to be brutally honest here and admit that I have noticed absolutely no difference to the colour and shade of my teeth from using this toothpaste over any other brand that I would normally buy. I have been buying the paste for around two months now and I would have thought that that was sufficient enough time to allow for any differences to be noticeable, so I can only assume that this element of the product has failed. When it comes to cleaning my teeth however, I do feel that the product does this efficiently and my mouth feels thoroughly clean and refreshed after I have used the paste. I usually use a mouthwash product after I have brushed my teeth with toothpaste anyway, but this is down to personal choice and is not something that I feel I need to do as a result of the toothpaste not working efficiently. I would buy the Colgate Deep Clean Whitening with Baking Soda toothpaste again, but only as a generic, 'everyday' product, rather than a product that was going to be effective at removing any stains or discolouration from my teeth. Due to the claims made on the product about the stain-removing properties of the product and the fact I felt they were non-existent, I will be deducting a few marks from the overall product score as I felt said claims were untrue. The toothpaste can be purchased from branches of Superdrug where it will cost you £1.19, but it is also available in discounted retailers such as Savers for around £1. I will probably buy it again, but not as a 'Whitening' product.
