Colgate Sensitive Pro-Relief Toothpaste
Advantages: Great for sensitive teeth
Disadvantages: Doesnt leave my teeth feeling squeaky clean
I love getting freebies, its a great way to try before you buy, the latest free sample to drop through my letter box was a tube of Colgate Sensitive Pro Relief toothpaste. All the manufacturers seem to be climbing on the "sensitive" bandwagon at the moment, and I for one am pleased because I have a very sensitive tooth! Its actually the last one of my baby teeth and its been giving me some real problems.
Colgate pro relief comes in a regular red and white tube with a screw top lid. The Colgate logo is splashed across the front where the customer is also informed that this will offer " instant and lasting relief". The directions for use are given on the back of the tube along with the ingredients and Colgate Palmolive contact address.
To open the tube you first need to break the safety seal which looks like a small screw in the end of the tube. To remove this you simple push the lid into it and turn. I liked this idea, its nice to know the toothpaste hasn't been squeezed, sniffed or even tasted ( I actually saw someone do this!) in the shop.
Colgate pro relief is white in colour and totally smooth, it doesn't feel in the slightest bit grainy when rubbed between your fingers, its actually quite runny for a toothpaste.
Directions For Use
Colgate state that for instant relief you simply apply the paste directly to the sensitive tooth and massage in for approximately 1 minuet. For lasting relief use the toothpaste twice a day, children of 6 years and younger should only use a pea sized amount of paste and should always bee supervised using the product.
Price and Availability
Colgate Pro Sensitive is available in most supermarkets and chemists where it costs approximately £3.56 for a 75ml tube, this does vary slightly depending on where you shop.
I've used half my tube of Colgate Pro Relief Sensitive and so far I have been very pleased with the sensitivity relief it has given my teeth. I have tried just applying it directly to the tooth and it did indeed relive the pain quickly as promised, the toothpaste has a lovely strong minty taste which lasts well after I have brushed leaving my mouth feeling fresh. As for actually cleaning my teeth well I have been less pleased with that. The paste does clean my teeth quite well but it doesn't leave them feeling squeaky clean like some toothpastes I have used, I feel they could be cleaner.
Overall I think this product is excellent for sensitive teeth, it has stopped my tooth from hurting after hot or cold food and drink which I am pleased about as sensitive teeth are a misery but as for the cleaning side it does lack somewhat. I now keep the rest of my sample tube in my handbag so I can apply it directly to my tooth should it flare up again but I wont buy a tube to use at home for cleaning my teeth, there are far better products on the market for less money.
Summary: Could be better on the cleaning front
