Colgate is one of those brands that end up filling my cabinet most of the time. The reason is that I often find their products on sale and it's too much of a good offer to pass up. This toothpaste is probably my favorite Colgate toothpaste, as it tends to differ from the usual minty ones.
The packaging is the standard Colgate tube, but this one has herbs swirling around. Which, I find appealing. The color of the paste is white, with a green stripe. The texture is very creamy, which is something I always look for in a toothpaste, as many tend to just break up into little pieces and no foam is produced. This paste is quite frothy and feels very nice, making a usual routine quite more enjoyable.
Now the taste is of course the best thing about it. I usually hate very very strong toothpastes, because they leave a burning sensation in my mouth, and that taste lingers on and ruins everything I try to eat afterwards. So, this herbal one, it has a very mild fresh taste, kinda lemony, if you know how eucalyptus smells then this is the scent. It reminds me of clean forest air. So, it leaves my mouth feeling clean and fresh with a mild herbal taste. It is definitely a lot better than most other toothpastes I have tried, and I always keep coming back to this one.
I highly recommend this if you are looking for a nice creamy and fresh toothpaste.
Over the years i have tried, i would say, almost all the Colgate varieties that are about just due to whatever is on promotion, what has been in the cupboard/bathroom at the time that i go to brush my teeth. I'm not going to lie, there has been a few that i have hated, one to note is the Colgate Oxygen which I despised due to it's "burniness" as to use correct terminology.
This Colgate toothpaste unlike it's counterparts which usually have a menthol or some sort of mint flavoring actually tastes herbal. The flavor is almost kind of weird as you expect mint when it comes to toothpaste as it is the set standard but somehow in my book this works. The toothpaste is quite easy and smooth making it easy to apply to the brush and the taste has no burning and so is quite an easy one for anyone to use. It's also quite an effective toothpaste as after using it I always left with my mouth feeling clean and comfortable.
In conclusion i would definitely suggest this as an option to anyone else who suffers from the strength of some toothpastes as this is definitely much easier on the taste buds, this isn't on promotion particularly often or at least i don't tend to see it but i believe it's value is worth paying for.
When I was given a sample of Colgate Herbal White my initial thought was that I would loathe it. The work 'herbal' conjured up images of a toothpaste that tasted of basil and rosemary and, while I love these flavours in savoury meals, they are not my flavours of choice when it comes to leaving my mouth feeling fresh. However, the toothpaste does not contain these herbs at all, and as well as being superbly fresh in taste, I was also surprised by how effective it was in terms of whitening.
The toothpaste contains extracts of eucalyptus and mint, as well as lemon. The toothpaste itself is predominately white in appearance, but has a green stripe running through it. I believe the colours of the packaging may put others off to begin with as it did me, for upon hearing the word 'herbal' and clocking the forest-green shades on the packet one immediately links the herbs in question to the likes of casserole flavours mentioned above. The toothpaste is nice and viscose, and once you begin to use it the toothpaste remains in the toothbrush for long enough to drag it over and between your teeth. I have found that many toothpastes will disappear from the toothbrush and my teeth before I am halfway done with cleaning. I am glad to say this is not the case with Herbal White.
The toothpaste immediately invigorates your mouth, and is similar in this respect to Airwaves chewing gum, with the blast of menthol it delivers as soon as it hits your tongue. The taste is strong enough to linger in the mouth for a good while after cleaning, too. Although the toothpaste does not seem to contain any crystals of any kind, it does an excellent job of whitening the teeth and ridding it of plaque, without being abrasive.
This is an excellent toothpaste, and is one of my favourites to date. It will not transform your teeth in terms of whitening, but I have noticed a subtle improvement in the colour of my teeth. Highly recommended.
As someone who doesn't like the taste of mint, I've tried all the alternative toothpastes until finally settling on Colgate Herbal. That was never easy to find - I originally bought it in Italy and stocked up when going back! - and it seems now to have been largely replaced by the White variety.
I prefer Herbal White as it has a cleaner taste. It certainly has none of the strange aftertaste that some herbal pastes have. It's one of the few non-mint pastes that still has the freshness of mint. It tastes good and always leaves me confident that my breath is fresh and clean. It is more pleasant than the old Herbal type with a lighter flavour.
What I'm not sure about is its claim to whitening. I haven't noticed any difference to the other toothpastes I've used. Good cleaning properties, but hasn't changed my tooth shade at all.
The only place I've seen this paste other than online is in discount shops, so I usually pay one pound for a tube. It's unfortunate that it's not more readily available, but do look out for it at pound shops and the like. Quality Save is one chain that usually has this toothpaste in stock.
I never thought I'd get quite as excited over a tube of toothpaste but after discovering this Colgate Herbal White I have been telling everyone about how great it is! I had seen this on supermarket shelves many times and had avoided buying it as I was put off a little by the 'herbal' in the product name. It made me think of herbal remedies, old-fashioned concoctions that are never as powerful or as effective as modern tonics. However, I was finally tempted to try the toothpaste after seeing it on offer - 2 50ml tubes for £1.
The product comes in a malleable tube which is also boxed and it is available in large and small tubes - I have the 50ml sized one which I believe is the smallest amount available. The packaging stands out from the rest of the Colgate range as it has a vivid green colouring.
There is some information about the product on the outer packaging. The toothpaste is said to leave teeth "whiter [and] shinier...naturally". There is a list of special ingredients highlighted on the box too. These are:
Baking Soda: This salt is often used as a household cleaning product and is well known for it's cleaning properties. Combined with hydrogen peroxide it also has whitening properties.
Lemon Extracts: For taste and freshness.
Eucalyptus: The oil extract creates a cooling effect and promtes a sense of freshness in the same way a vapour rub works.
Melissa: A plant known as lemon balm whose leaves have a minty flavour to them.
The toothpaste also contains calcium and flouride to strengthen teeth.
The paste itself is white with turquoise stripes running through it. The white paste looks and feels very chalky and a bit more sticky and dense than other toothpastes I have used. I use this with a regular, manual toothbrush since the product contains baking soda which may be too abrasive if used with an electric brush. The paste becomes very frothy and bubbly while brushing but I can feel a powdery sensation on my teeth and gums if I run my tongue over them. A good rinse with cool water is needed to get rid of the chalky deposits. My teeth feel very clean and look bright after I use the paste.
The taste of the toothpaste is sensational. It has a mild lemon and forest-fern flavour and is unlike any other toothpaste I've ever used. It is extraordinarily refreshing. I have to say that I have used this after eating garlic and it manages to eradicate most of the taste and aroma of even this strong stinky food! The toothpaste leaves my mouth feeling cool and fresh without burning the sensitive skin in my cheeks or irritating my gums in any way. I have used lots of toothpastes that were just too strong and literally made the flesh of my lips peel (ugh!) but this Herbal White is very mild and kind to sensitive mouths. I can use it on a regular basis too.
I have never enjoyed using a toothpaste as much as I do this Herbal White. I reccommend it to those who would like a mild and unusual flavour as part of their mouthcare routine. It cleans, refreshes and provides a wonderful taste in the mouth!

I have been using Colgate Herbal for over 5 years now and it has fast become the only toothpaste I can happily use. I'm one of very few individuals who hate the taste of mint, which poses a rather large problem when buying toothpaste, however I have found Colgate Herbal manages to give me 'minty fresh' clean feeling without being overtly minty. Magic.
Firstly, this product is hard to find and I often cannot get it from major supermarkets (only from smaller, sometimes discount stores) but it is defiantly worth trying to find! It comes in a big tube so it lasts for ages, and although the name can be off-putting it doesn't really have big green herbs in the toothpaste!
The product does taste minty, however it isn't as strong as many other products on the market. Only a little amount is needed to clean all the teeth so one tube lasts for ages, and I can also use it to clean my tongue without gagging, a definite plus. I use a manual toothbrush with the product and it always makes my mouth feel clean, there is a nice aftertaste which lasts about 10 minutes, but it does not have an overpowering smell, when used or on the breath after use. It keeps my teeth in great condition, although it doesn't whiten them at all, as the packaging suggests.
Colgate is my brand for toothpastes but I usually look for one that gives me that minty clean feeling after brushing. That does not mean that I require a tooth paste with mint flavour.
I normally go in for a very simple toothpaste, may be one that claims great whitening power. The colgate Total is what sits on my bathroom sink.
Recently when I saw the Colgate Herbal toothpaste on the department store shelves with all the herbs and all pictured on it's box I thought I should give this new one a try even though I am not big on herbs when it comes to toothpastes. I didn't really find any difference in this toothpaste. My older one cleaned just the same and if the herb power has to be given some credit, well, you will perhaps have to keep using this one for a longer period of time.
As for me, I would just stick with my usual colgate Total or max the Colgate whitening.
hi i was just wondering why ican't buy "colgate herbal" at my local supermarket and have to get my mother in south africa to send it to me. it is the best toothpaste i've used. always been a "colgate" user since i was a little girl. i have partial dentures from a car accident and "colgate herbal" keeps my real and dentures so clean and my breath so fresh. i would reccommend it to anyone because if it keeps my teeth clean then it should work for everyone else. by the way i am also a smoker about 23 years and i've no stains from the tobacco due to "colgate" and "colgate herbal". thanks for the opportunity to air my views.
Did you see the adverts on TV during the promotional campaign for this new flavour of toothpaste? Colgate herbal toothpaste sank to new depths of cheesiness in the advert, using a male model (with immaculate white teeth of course), in a sailing boot, to ask a cartoon beaver how he keeps his teeth strong, white and healthy! The idea behind it being that this new brand from Colgate uses natural ingredients – hence the herbal! Well anyway, this concept must have got logged in my little brain as a few days after I saw the adverts I was in the local supermarket and there it was on offer an introductory price of 40p less. Being a sucker for a bargain – I was sold. Anyway the toothpaste wasn’t needed immediately, so before I got a chance to try out I had a sneaky-peaky on Ciao to see what other people had thought – DAMN! It wasn’t winning too many votes of confidence. Colgate Herbal toothpaste is the “new kid on the block”, so to speak, and is fundamentally different to the other products on the market. Firstly the toothpaste uses a blend of different herbs as the cleaning agents. Secondly it has a unique “refreshing” taste which for once is not some form of mint. The packaging states that the main herbs used are chamomile, myrrh, sage and eucalyptus. I will just summarise by saying eucalyptus and myrrh have antiseptic qualities whereas sage is an astringent and a breath freshener. Myrrh has historically been used as a “toothpaste” – but then again in Tudor times neat hydrochloric acid was also employed in the same use – which was fine provided it stayed off the tongue, gums, etc…. (NOTE: DO NOT USE HYDROCHLORIC ACID (HCl) AS A TOOTHPASTE!!!!) Well the theory behind the use of these herbs is sound, so what about taste and colour? The colour is two-tone green. I think it is supposed to be stripped but my tube seems to come ou
t blotchy, hmm nil point for presentation. I don’t know whether this is deliberate, but you cannot beat Aquafresh’s multi-coloured stripes! Taste, well they claimed at had a radical refreshing taste unlike any other toothpaste on the market. They were right about the distinctive taste – it certainly isn’t mint. I might be showing my age (23), but it tastes exactly like Kopp Kopp sweets! Kopp Kopps looked like black fruit pastels but tasted of euchalyptus as they were supposed to be to keep away colds etc (or so my grandparents told me….. why couldn’t they have had Werther’s originals like everyone else). To be honest - I thought Kopp Kopps were rank and the same goes for these. They also have a bad side-affect of giving you foul smelling breath – obviously the sage doesn’t work. I wouldn’t recommend using this toothpaste immediately before going on a date or out with friends – otherwise you might become a social outcast. I started writing this review six weeks ago but due to work commitments it never got posted. The tube is still lurking in the bathroom virtually untouched, as no one is keen on it. I have heard rumours that this toothpaste can be used to remove marks from curtains and wallpaper, but this has yet to be put to the test. I may have to carry out some experiments as it seems a pity to let a tube of toothpaste go to waste – but there is no way it will get used in our bathroom which is a pity because the theory behind a herbal toothpaste seems sound.
I've suffered from mouth ulcers since I was a little boy. Very young in fact. I generally have around 3 or 4 at any one time and I've had up to 8 in my mouth sometimes. Now I'm into my thirties I tend to consider mouth ulcers as a minor irritation because I can more or less block out the pain due to being so used to it. Unless, that is, I have a particularly big one and then nothing can block the pain out. I have always used Ambasol as a pain killer. I've tried everything out there and it's the best, believe me. I've even been to a specialist hospital to see if anything could be done. The doctor told me that they didn't know what was causing it but I'd probably grow out of it by the time I'm fifty. Not what you want to hear when your eleven! But now I think I've virtually eradicated the problem (I hope). I've always suspected that I was allergic to mint, so I deceided to swop toothpaste and try one without mint to see what would happen. The mouth ulcers have almost completely dissapeared. I cannot recommend a non-mint toothpaste highly enough to anyone who suffers from ulcers. I'm using Colgate Herbal Toothpaste at the moment and it also seems to be doing the trick (I've tried others as well). I've managed to cure what medical science could not simply by changing toothpaste. So go on all you people who suffer from ulcers, give it a go. You know you want to. OK, OK. You want more about the product. I'm sorry, I was so excited to get rid of the ulcers I forgot myself. The paste itself is white with a some lovely thin green sripes running through it, and it comes out of the tube very easily. The taste itself is quite unusual. I can't really put my finger on it to be honest, but it's not an unpleasent experience. It's just herby really, which is good I suppose, given the name. Right, that's it, what more can I say about a toothpaste? I
39;ve just ordered a new wide-screen TV and I'll write an indepth op on that as soon as it arrives, OK? My real motive when writing the op was to inform ulcer suffers about something that may help them out rather than to review the toothpaste itself. It's taken me 30 years to get rid of them, hopefully it won't take others so long. Spread the word!
Well after reading the ops on this toothpaste I just had to write this as most of the people hated the taste of this toothpaste. You see I disagree with this after all it is only toothpaste and it may have a different taste to the normal minty ones but I actually prefer the Herbal one now. It took me a couple of days to get used to the taste but of course once you buy something you have to finish it, especially when its my house and toothpaste isn't really that cheap. I think the taste of this toothpaste is similar to aniseed, which I like. I thought my husband liked it too as he wasn't complaining about it so when it was close to running out I bought the bigger size, it was then that I found out he actually hated it so next trip to the supermarket found me buying another new toothpaste (opinion coming soon, once I've tried it of course!). Toothpaste is of course an every day item, some people use more whether its brushing after every meal or just generally squirt out too much onto the brush. Now, it just states that it contains only one thing (the active ingredient I suppose) and that is Sodium Monoflurophosphate, this is according to the tube which just has a lot of telephone Numbers and addresses of how to get into contact with Colgate-Palmolive not very helpful really! The toothpaste my husband is using is called Colgate fresh confidence and this does actually have more ingredients listed so why doesn't the herbal one? The telephone number for the UK is 00-800-321321-32 and there address here is Guildford GU12 8JZ and there is an e-mail address as well which is firstname.lastname@example.org. I emailed them and asked them for a list of the ingredients, they then sent me a reply, straight away, saying that they wanted my mailing address so I will have to wait for the post on that one! Will update when received ( or should I say if!) I like this toothpaste because it does leave your te
eth nice and clean and your breath nice as well. If you haven't tried it give it a go but remember that its not like the minty ones we are all used to so give it a couple of days to get used to it! Thanks for reading Amanda..
You go up to your boyfriend/girlfriend/wife/husband one day and give him/her a kiss and instead of them saying, 'Hey gorgeous, your minty breath is nice and fresh today' They say, 'Hey gorgeous, your herbal breath is nice and fresh today'!!!!!! What do you think, sad I know but HERBAL'S the new thing isn't it! The toothpaste is now out, what do you reckon will be next, my guess is Herbal gum!! What do you think of that!? It's the newest toothpaste on the block and it's either a love it or hate it product from Colgate. The toothpaste originated from the famous 'Beaver' advert! Remember it!? The male model fishing in his boat with the of course, shiny white Colgate teeth and the beaver with even shinier teeth!? The man says, 'How do you get such white teeeth Mr. Beaver!?' The Beaver says, 'Well, I use Colgate Herbal toothpaste of course!' I definitely think that Colgate are the best 'teeth' retailers on the market and all their toothpaste products work brilliantly which was one of the main reasons why I was so interested in this new product. I'm sure the new toothpaste inspired many people, not just me! It certainly looked cool and very interesting to try out so I asked my mum for some the next time she went shopping and although she forgot to buy me some, she managed to remember to buy herself some! The toothpaste stayed in my mums bathroom and after a while I got really peeved off and just went in there one night and nicked it! My mum had bought the 100ml squeezy tube which was really easy to use, the toothpaste itself was a mixture of a greenish and whitish colour blended together which looked interesting! (I don't know if it was supposed to be in stripes or not!) As I added the combination of mixed herbs and goodness to my toothbrush I felt a little worried, the smell was very strong and certainly not minty! I overcome my worst fears and st
uck the green ucky goo in my mouth, my first impression was 'YUCK!' 'This is rank!' But as I brushed and cleaned my teeth the weird and different odour and taste got used to me! The toothpaste, which contains all the usual such as the fluoride and calcium, as well as these extra extracts of Chamomile, Sage, Myrrh and Eucalyptus to protect against cavities still cares for out teeth and our gums and also leaves are mouths smelling fresh and clean but not minty! The main 4 herbal extracts added to this 'tube of goodness' are as mentioned before, Myrrh and Eucalyptus, Chamomile and Sage. Here is what all of them do to help your teeth: Myrrh Myrrh is an essential herb to the toothpaste and helps our teeth recover any sores or problems. It helps our gums and also helps to heal sore throats. Myrrh, a healing remedy which has been used in many toothpastes and mouth washes before so this is not a first. Eucalyptus Eucalyptus is a strong and popular herb which has been around for many years, it originated good health after people started to chew on the roots of the herb for water. People also used the leaves as a pain reliever for fevers. Then in the early 19th century people began to realise that Eucalyptus could help asthma, bronchitis, whooping cough, and emphysema too. The main ingredient of the eucalyptus leaves is an oil known to us as eucalyptol. Just like nowaday remedys which unstuff blocked up noses, Eucalyptus did the same job and helped releive nasel stuffiness. Eucalyptus also protects and fights off certain viruses. Within the toothpaste Eucalyptus helps out teeth and gums because it is an antibacterial agent, and also helps ease sinus problems and sore throats. Chamomile Chamomile, believe it or not is part of the daisy family and has been used for thousands of years to calm the gastrointestinal system. Charmomile relaxes and un- tenses the nervous system
and is famous for helping stomach cramps, gas, indigestion or upset stomachs, ulcers and other certain problems that may be caused by tension. The herb as well as relieves tension also relieves stress and uncomfortableness. In the mouth this herb reduces the swelling of inflamed gums and relieves sore throats. Sage Sage is very good at killing bacteria which is very vital to our bodies, Sage contains a number of active constituents such as ocimene, cineole, limonene, and terpinene. Sage keeps the mouth clean and free of disease. So baaically this toothpaste is full of goodness and helps your mouth, gums and teeth as well as your throat too! For a 100ml tube you pay around £2 but I know in many large stores such as supermarkets this product is on special offer as an introductory price. The packaging is very green, obviously to represent the herbs! It is quite attractive and looks quite funky in my bathroom!!! Although the toothpaste may look, smell and taste a little weird it is actually brilliant! You get used to the non-minty smell and taste after a while and now have my very own tube which I use everyday! After you've actually brushed your teeth your teeth, gums and throat feel lovely, better than after any other toothpaste I've ever tried! So although many people dislike this product, I give it the thumbs up, as I said before you either love it or hate it! so, give it a try and see what you think! love it, but do you!? Thanks~M~
I bought this toothpaste as a change from my usual shops own brand (my attitude to toothpaste is it’s basically all the same, the fact that you brush your teeth, and the way you brush your teeth are the most important factors). Colgate herbal sounded as though it might taste quite good. It contains myhrr, eucalyptus, camomile, and sage. Apart from these ingredients, I would say that it’s not that different from your usual Colgate toothpaste - that is, it’s chock full of the usual scientific-sounding ingredients. There is nothing on the pack to tell us what the properties of any of these herbs are, in respect to dental care. I guess they don’t feel able to make any claims which they can’t prove. The only thing it says on the pack like this is “Strong healthy teeth”, which is more of a slogan than a promise. So it’s best to regard the ‘herbal’ as merely a flavouring. The toothpaste has blue-green stripes, which presumably contain the herb flavourings. The taste? This is a very personal thing, so some people may like it and others hate it. I think it’s okay – definitely more of a herbal taste than your usual minty toothpaste taste. The main taste is, I think, the eucalyptus, and it reminds me of the tea tree oil products I’ve used before. Think of cough sweets, or Vick, and you’re nearly there. So fresh tasting, but a bit medicinal, too. Not the usual kind of taste you’d associate with toothpaste, but some might love it. It comes in an easy-to squeeze tube, with the screw on cap. As far as I’m aware, there is no pump-container alternative. I would say that Colgate herbal is essentially a gimmick, designed to make you think you’re buying a product that’s ‘green’, which is okay if you like the taste, but don’t forget it’s still made by Colgate Palmolive, a huge multinational corporat
ion. I believe there are lots of reasons to use a herbal toothpaste, one that has all natural ingredients, but Colgate herbal is by no means the best. Hopefully, though, it may persuade shoppers like myself to try something that’s more “the real thing”. If you really want a herbal toothpaste I would recommend something like Thoms, Kingfisher or Sarakan instead – these are available in most health food shops. Price: £1.75 for 100 ml, £0.99 for 50 ml, at Superdrug.
I have been having a lot of trouble with my teeth just lately and finally plucked up the courage to visit the dentist, that is another opinion of mine so I wont go into too much detail about it. I am now really looking after my teeth and clean them religiously twice a day because I certainly don’t want to go through the ordeal of the dentist chair again for a while, or see the vacuum in my hard earned savings come to that. Dentists are so expensive, I will have to do an op on that when I finish paying the bill. I bought a tube of Colgate Herbal Toothpaste to try because my mouth is still rather tender. It said that it was kind to gums because of the eucalyptus and camomile ingredients. Colgate has a good name so I thought I would give it a try. Kind to gums? You must be joking it was horrible. There was a faint peppermint taste but it smelt like that camomile lotion my mother used to smear on me when I had measles thirty years ago. The smell was disgusting and made me feel quite nauseous, it burnt my gums to be quite honest and I had to sit for ages gargling with some cold water. I thought that if a product was herbal it was a gentle product, apparently not. Maybe there was some nettles used in it, well it certainly felt like I had a mouth full of the stingers. If you have tender gums avoid this one like the plague and spend £1.29 on your usual toothpaste instead.
This toothpaste is great if you like to break away from the usual in your bathroom. It doesn’t contain tea-tree oil which is a nice change. Colgate have chosen a sensible collection of herbs for this. Chamomile is nice and soothing, Sage has antiseptic properties and Myrhh is supposed to be good for anything that’s a bit soggy – so might firm up those gums a bit. The Eucalyptus is soothing and antiseptic too and should help to deodorise the mouth. The paste is mainly white with a green stripe and froths up easily to spread all round your teeth and gums. It has a pleasant fresh taste, slightly sweet in the same way as aniseed or liquorice and leaves your mouth feeling lovely.
