Happy Kitty Sewing: Colgate Optic White

Colgate Optic White

I received three Colgate products in my Influenster Sugar 'n Spice VoxBox which I was excited to try out.  I got the Optic White 360' Toothbrush, Toothpaste, and Mouthwash, which promised whiter teeth in 5 days, when you use all three products together!  Usually I am very skeptical when it comes to toothpaste whitening promises.  I've tried the Crest Strips, to all the whitening toothpastes, and I really haven't seen much of a difference.  I drink a lot of tea, Coke and coffee and all three stain my teeth, so I'm always looking for products that will *really* whiten my teeth.

The Optic White 360 Toothbrush
Back with Tongue Scraper
As you can see, it looks like an ordinary toothbrush, but it has two features that promise optimal whitening.  The first is the whitening cups.  If you look down the middle of the toothbrush you will see 3 white circles that are lower than the surrounding bristles, and those are the whitening cups.  The second feature is the polishing bristles, which help whiten teeth by polishing away surface stains, and cleans hard-to-reach areas.  The toothbrush also boasts a cheek and tongue scraper and an easy to hold non-slip handle.

Optic White Toothpaste
This product comes in 3 different flavors: Sparkling Mint, Cool Mild Mint, and Enamel White.  The flavor I tried was Sparkling mint.  It comes out white, tastes like mint, but is NOT overwhelming.  I REALLY like this toothpaste.  The first time I used it, I could tell that it whitened my teeth.  I love this toothpaste, and I probably won't change until I find a better product.  I use Crest and Sensodyne as well, and they don't whiten my teeth like this.

Optic White Mouthwash

And this is where the secret is.  After using this mouthwash ONCE, I could tell a MAJOR difference!  I really couldn't believe it.  BUT, no pain no gain.  This mouthwash is REALLY strong.  The directions state to swish 15ml (3 teaspoons) for 1 minute, twice a day.  After about 30 seconds the liquid starts to bubble and the edge wears off slightly.  It's a really strong mouthwash, I'm not going to lie, but the taste is tolerable and does not include alcohol, which is very important to me.  After 5 days there was a major difference!  The trick for me was to lean forward and let the mouthwash pool across my front teeth, instead of laying on my tongue for the whole time.  Plus it starts to foam, and the taste isn't so strong.  

By using all 3 products, in 5 days my teeth were noticeably whiter, definitely by 3 shades which is the Colgate promise. It removed my surface stains from tea and pop.  I have been using this regimen for over a month, and I can tell a big difference, and I am more confident to smile.  I will be using these products from now on!  Thank you Influenster for this major change in my life!

Even though this is embarrassing, I'll show you a Pre-Colgate Pic:

AND this pic is after I had dinner and didn't do my second whitening!  Also the pic tint is a little off, but you can  from the first pic a major difference.  Go get some Colgate Optic White and brighten your smile today!  I swear on it!

The Colgate Optic White Toothbrush sells for around $5, the toothpaste for around $3 for 4 oz., and the mouthwash for around $3 for 8 oz.  These products have been spotted at Walgreens, Rite Aid, Walmart, CVS, and other grocery stores.  I find these products to be priced very reasonable compared to other similar products promising the same results.
