Colgate Total plus Whitening.
I am normally very impressed with Colgate as they are generally a good brand but I'm not so sure about this product. I only bought a small 50 ml tube and in away I'm glad I did. Their advertising is always very good and all the information you need is on the tube "fights Cavities, plaque, Gum Problems" and this is probably the case but this tooth paste just isn't for me for many reasons.
Its very weak tasting unless you use a great deal, most Colgate toothpastes are nice and strong and feel like they are working like tingling which I like to feel but this fails to do this.
OK it is a gel like substance but it seems to stick together, it doesn't separate and spread round the mouth very well. When you start to rinse there always seems to be a large amount that you spit out without it seeming to do anything, it looks like its just come of the toothbrush!!
The product undiluted smells really strong but as I mentioned above it doesn't seem to be.
It also doesn't give me a lasting freshness that other Colgate toothpastes provide. On the back of the tube it states "Colgate total plus whiting provides long-lasting protection against bacteria" but I don't feel it doing this during the cleaning or after.
Overall I was quite surprised at the lack of talent this toothpaste has. I will stick to Colgate just not this type.
Colgate Total Plus Whitening Toothpaste!
I have used Colgate for a number of years now and I tend to buy a different product to try out each time I run out. This time I have the plus whitening edition and I have been pleased so far. My teeth are not perfect but I don't have any fillings or anything like that so I can see the effects of this paste. Colgate is manufactured in Poland and it has an excellent reputation and I will not put this down!
This Colgate paste is a long lasting anti bacterial protector and it aims to give you white teeth, fight cavities, remove plaque, prevent tartar, fight bad breath, reduce gum problems and restore natural whiteness. This has a unique combination of fluoride and fresh mint to give you fresh breath and protection between brushing. It also has an advanced whitening ingredient which helps to get your teeth nice and white.
This comes in a 50ml tube which is quite handy as I am not into those pumps because they get all messy as well as the lids- these are also cheaper which is good! On the front there is a large title stating 'Colgate' in red and the rest of the theme is blue. This tube lasts my family of three around two weeks and that is twice a day brushing so that is really good!
I have been using this for around one week now and I have seen immediate effects which is great, my teeth are definitely whiter and they make your breath stay minty for ages! I like the way this makes my teeth feel as well, like it has removed all plaque and they are really shiny and noticeable.
This was on offer for one pound in Tesco and I am really glad that I bought it because it has worked a treat as usual for Colgate- brilliant buy!
