I find the toothgel I bought for myself superb.!!It isint as strong as normal toothpastes ,and it hasent any nasty impurites which as all so often found in regular brands.I make sure my Daughter uses it to and it should be noted that if you swallow a bit it is "harmless" you cant say that for normal brands !!My Daughter and I find it a pleasure to use day and night.Keep up the good work FLP.
I came across the Forever Living range of products through a friend of mine. She tried some of the products herself, and she had such good results herself that she decided to become a distributor herself of the products. Consequently, I have now tried some of these products myself.
Forever Living are a company that sells a range of products that contain natural ingredients to promote health. A lot of their products contain Aloe Vera which is known for its soothing properties to the human body. I personally have some experience of applying Aloe Vera to the skin and also ingesting it in the form of a cordial from Holland and Barratt to help my sensitive tummy. Therefore, I was keen to try some of these products.
I like the philosophy of using natural ingredients and I also like that the company do not test on animals.
This tooth gel is quite a strange product. It contains stabilised Aloe Vera gel and bee propolis. I wasn't sure what to expect from this product before seeing it, as it is sold as containing no added fluoride, being low abrasive on your teeth, being able to whiten without any bleaching agents, being antibacterial, suitable for vegetarians, and containing only natural peppermint and spearmint flavourings.
My first use of this gel I wasn't epecting much to be honest. I thought it looked odd compared to my normal colgate. Instead of a thick paste, this is quite a thin gel, and instead of being white in colour, it is a funny shade of green. I normally use a pea size blob of toothpaste with an electric toothbrush. Here, I used enough gel to cover the round head on my brush, but it was more of a flat disc of gel rather than a proud pea sat on my brush. I didn't feel I should use more than this really as it would just fall of my brush.
I found that the foaming that you expect from toothpaste is there, just not quite so apparent as with my normal brand. The gel is incredibly gentle on my teeth. It doesn't seem to coat my teeth very much, but by the time I have finished cleaning my teeth for the usual duration, my mouth does feel as clean as any other toothpaste leaves it. More so than some of the cheaper supermarket brands I have tried when money has been tighter.
The taste of this is quite minty, but it is not as artificial. It is hard to describe really, as you only realise that other brands taste artificial from tasting the natural version. I find it more like the initial spearmint taste you get from chewing gum. I'm not sure how long this taste would linger in my mouth as I tend to follow up with Listerine mouth wash after using any toothpaste, and that has a strong enough taste to overpower the mint from the tooth gel.
While I do not feel that I can comment on contributing to whiteness of my teeth (my teeth are pretty stain free any way thanks to use of whitening toothpastes and my electric brush and regular dentist/hygienist visits) I certainly feel that my teeth are just as clean using this thin gel as my usual paste. That has surprised me to be honest.
There are a couple of little things that put me off buying this more regularly, in spite of liking the product. Firstly, I do like having flouride in toothpaste. It is recommended we use one with around 1000-1400ppm of fluoride in it to keep teeth strong. I certainly would not skimp on providing my children with this, and its probably unwise to do so myself, though I know some people are dead set against this. (In our area, children routinely have fluoride paste applied to their teeth at dental appointments to help prevent tooth decay.)
Another thing is that this is only available from either a distributor you know, or the forever living website, or from somewhere like amazon. Lastly, it costs rather a lot being a natural product. It is £5.75 for a 130g tube of the gel. I don't pay as much as this normally for toothpaste. The plus to this is it would last longer than a same size tube of toothpaste as you don't need quite as much.
Overall, a nice product, I think it works brilliantly, but I would be reluctant myself to skimp on fluoride when it is recommended we use it for dental health. I would hate to think that I compromised my familys long term dental health by skipping it. Therefore, it is not going to be something I would purchase, but I would recommend to anyone looking for a nice gentle yet effective toothpaste.
For anyone who wants to know more about fluoride, there is information from the NHS here about it. http://www.nhs.uk/Conditions/Fluoride/Pages/Introduction.aspx
I have been aware of FLP since 2006 and have even signed on to be a distributor. I haven't really done much, however due to certain situations I was in throughout the past few years. I have used their products continuously throughout that period of time however!
The primary ingredients of FLP Forever Bright Tooth gel are stabilized Aloe Vera and Bee Propolis. It contains no fluoride or animal by-products which makes it suitable for vegetarians.
I was surprised by the look of the toothpaste itself. It looks like green slime, far from the standard white paste.
It has a great taste while brushing (natural peppermint and spearmint) and it left my teeth feeling considerably cleaner than the regular toothpaste. I loved the fresh feeling.
After using it for longer it has also helped me with my gums. They use to be quite sensitive, bleeding when brushing and such, also inflamed a lot. They are feeling so much better now.
I would most certainly recommend this tooth gel for ANYONE as its worked so well, not only for me, but for the whole household.
I have been ordering FLP products in the USA so far. The orders would be put in online and for standard shipping, however I would always get the orders in under 3 business days. Often times I'd be using my products before my card has even been charged!
Now that I'm in UK and Europe I will have to see how things are working out here.
I find all Forever Living Products wonderful and I am an avid fan of their range which include Gel drinks to aid digestive disorders, muscle and joint pain and skin complaints such as eczma and psoriasis to name but a few.
The Forever Living Products company is the largest grower of aloe in the world, owning 80% of the aloe produced. they do not use any chemicals or pesticides to grow their aloe and their products are chemical and preservative free.
As a Holistic Therapist, I care a great deal about health of the mind body and soul and always try to make natural, environmentally friendly choices when buying and using products.
The Tooth Gel is dark green, non grainy, smooth gel and contains stabalised aloe gel as its main ingredient. It contains no flouride therefore for those of us who are conscious of the chemicals and toxins that in so many products today, can use this and not have to worry.
Its use can help many conditions such as mouth ulcers, bleeding gums, infections, coldsores etc. In fact, having sufferd with mouth ulers regulalry for many years, I found that after using the Forever Living Tooth Gell for only four weks, my ulcers dissapeared completely and have not returned since.
Its fresh minty taste lasts long into the day and leaves the whole mouth feeling refreshed. My 2 children love this product too and I am happy that it is safe for them to use. Only a small amount on the brush is needed. If when you spit out the gel it is still green, this is a sign that too much gel is being used.
The tube lasts longer than an equivalent size other branded toothpastes I have used in the past therefore at £4.65 per tube, I feel that I am also getting real value for money.
I have to say that i use the aloe vera toothpaste & i find it great. I have 4 kids & I love the fact that there is no flouride in it so they can safely eat the tube if they wish. They range in ages from 21 months to 12 & they have no problem using it
I bought this product when I attended an Aloe Vera party conducted by a Forever Living rep at a neighbours house last year.
When I attended the party I hadn't a clue who Forever Living were but I was soon put straight. For those who have read my review on the deodorant you will already know about the Forever Living brand & the healing properties of Aloe but for those who haven't then here goes....
FLP (Forever Living Products) are based in Arizona and they claim to be the largest grower of Aloe Vera along with being the largest producer and distributer of Aloe Vera products.
Rex Maughan is the founder of the company, which was apparently founded in 1978. He extols the virtues of Aloe Vera and the company produces a wide range of gel drinks, cosmetics, face creams, shampoos, toothpastes and household goods.
As far as I understand the products are marketed through television mail order, internet and through the parties.
They also offer a 60 day money back guarantee on your purchase.
Aloe Vera has been used in skin creams for years and for thousands of years we have used it in it's purest form to help skin problems but I have found out that it has other properties too.
Drinking Aloe gel can help digestion and it is claimed it also contains anti-inflammatory properties. Certainly the rep at the party was keen to go on about it's healing powers.
We were passed testers of various products to try before we bought. One of the testers was a small amount of the tooth gel. I tried a bit on my finger and then rubbed on my front teeth - it certainly convinced me to buy a tube.
The toothpaste tube is in a long oblong shaped box with the Forever Living logo on the side and the name of the product beneath. You get 130g of tooth gel in the tube.
Taking off the screw cap there is a foil seal over the neck of the tube to prevent tampering with the product.
The rep claimed that the Forever Bright Toothgel would make my smile pearly white again. At the time I was a smoker so this appealed.
The Gel claims that it is non abrasive, contains stabilised Aloe Vera and will strengthen and nourish your teeth and gums. It has a minty taste which will leave your mouth feeling fresh all day long.
God I was sold on this frantically scribbling on my order form. Did it live up to these claims?......
To say that the claim is that this is non abrasive I was surprised that it looked quite grainy when I squeezed some out onto my toothbrush.
When I'd tried it at the party it didn't have this consistency at all. It is a thick gel consitency and smells very minty.
I always make sure I wet toouthpaste when it's on the brush before I start brushing so I did the same with this and began to brush my front teeth. As I went on brushing my back teeth and along my tongue the minty taste began to burn. Also the taste was quite overpowering and I had to wash my mouth out quick.
What did I think?
I perservered, using this twice a day for 2 weeks but it didn't get any better. I was loathe to waste my money so I carried on a couple more weeks and the burning sensation did lessen each time I used it.
As for the claim that it brightens teeth - well I noticed no change in that area as my teeth were still the same colour (they're not stained just an offwhite colour) so maybe they weren't bad enough for me to notice any difference.
The minty freshness did last until about lunchtime though so at least this claim was halfway there.
I did finish the tube but I won't be rushing to buy any more of this product and it didn't last any longer than my normal colgate toothpaste so I was a bit disappointed with it.
I can also think of much better things to spend a fiver on these days so for the amount of toothgel that you actually get I felt that this price was a bit hefty.
I didn't think at the time but writing this review reminds me that they have a 60 day money back satisfaction guarantee and wish I had used this but I forgot!

I paid £5 for the gel and you get 130g of product.
