Colgate Max Fresh with Cooling Crystals
Advantages: Great to travel with, Good price, Attractive Packaging
For the purposes of this review I shall be concentrating on the Cooling Crystals (Cool Mint) flavour, but just for the record, I have purchased and used them both.
I recently found these toothpastes on offer in my local boots (at £1 each for 100ml) so thought I may as well make the most of this offer. The ones I purchased differ slightly in packaging from the picture above as they come in a toughened plastic bottle (rather than the boxed tube) but the product inside is exactly the same as is the price which is why I have added my review here. They do not appear to have pictures of the exact product I have online which means I cannot add this - but as I say, the product is the same so I hope this is still helpful.
Firstly, this looks an attractive enough product. My particular version came in a plastic tub and this helped as it allows me to squeeze out the amount of the product needed, and then use it, without mess or wastage.
Sodium Flouride (1000 ppmF)
Sodium Lauryl Sulfate
Made in Mexico
*WHAT IT DOES*
The back of the product says that this toothpaste:
- Freshens and cleans your mouth
- Whiter Teeth
- Fights Cavities
The main feature of this product is that it has 'Cooling Crystals' which are tiny little squares which are dispensed within the product, and will melt in the mouth to effectively act as a mouthwash or cleaner which compliments the toothpaste.
*USAGE / DIRECTIONS*
For children aged 6 and under, they should use a pea-sized amount.
Adults should be able to apply the amount they require onto their toothbrushes which allows them to brush inside their entire mouth.
This is quite pleasant and incredibly refreshing (in my opinion).
I really enjoy using this product for a few reasons. I like the packaging, which means that when I travel, it is always the product of choice.
I also like the quirkiness of those little squares of cooling crystals which just add to the brushing effect slightly.
The flavour is not distasteful to me at all, and I quite look forward to using this product (I like to have a few products available depending on my mood at the time and this one is fast disappearing!).
I find that this product does last, and that must be because of the accuracy of dispensing through the flip cap which means that there is no wastage or spilling. The product is quite easy to handle in that you open the lid, turn it upside down, and then dispense the required amount quite easily. The packaging is blue and quite attractive meaning it looks good on my shelf too - not that that makes any difference to the effect this product had on my teeth, but I do find it aesthetically pleasing!
On a final note - I prefer this flavour to the green one (cannot remember the name, I'm sorry). I found the green one to be more minty and less refreshing, whereas this one was just perfect - but that could be more personal opinion.
Summary: I am hoping to find it on special offer again!
