Colgate 360 Degree Optic White Toothbrush

Yesterday I reviewed the Colgate Optic White Toothpaste ... and as promised, here is the review of the Colgate 360 Degree Optic White Toothbrush I purchased with the toothpaste.

While I was not super impressed with the Optic White Toothpaste, I do really enjoy the Colgate 360 Degree Optic White Toothbrush. I feel that the difference textures and heights of the toothbrush combine to reach all areas of your teeth and between your teeth to give you a super-clean feeling.

This toothbrush does tend to be a little pricier than some of the other popular brands currently available, but I found it on sale at CVS and combined my purchase with the use of a coupon, which led to me getting the toothbrush for a fairly reasonable price.

All in all, I would recommend this toothbrush wholeheartedly, but I would search for coupons before purchasing... but then, you know how I am about coupons.

Colgate Optic White Toothpaste

So I recently saw an advertisement (and a coupon) for this new Colgate Optic White toothpaste. It promises results similar to those given by whitening strips, by just brushing with this toothpaste instead of your normal toothpaste.

Now, I'm not a particularly big fan of whitening strips, because I feel that they taste awful, and I can't keep still long enough to keep them on my teeth for the required amount of time. So when I saw the ad for this Optic White toothpaste combined with the coupon (you know me, I can't resist a good coupon), I figured I would give the product a shot.

To start with, the taste is a little harsher than my normal toothpaste, but I figured it would be worth it, if it produced the desired affects. Needless to say, it really hasn't. Six weeks in, and I can't see a noticeable difference, I even took a "before" picture of my teeth, so that I wouldn't just be relying on my own fickle memory. I even purchased one of the Optic White 360 Toothbrushes (review forthcoming) to make sure I was getting the full effect.

All in all, not a bad toothpaste, my teeth were felt super clean - but it no where near delivers on its whitening promises... and would be expensive to buy without a coupon, so I think I will forgo it in the future, and stick to the regular level of whitening toothpastes - which deliver the same results for less.
