Instead of makeup, shampoos, or hair removal devices, for this week's Beauty Mark It Challenge we're talking teeth. I wanted to know which toothpastes got those pearlies all sparkly and which ones didn't freshen as nicely. Thanks to all of your reviewing efforts, and here are my favorites below:
- Elle 07 reviewed Crest Pro-Health Fluoride Toothpaste for Anticavity, Antigingivitis, and Sensitive Teeth ($4.29) — "This is my favorite toothpaste. Taste is minty, makes my teeth feel clean, and no problem with sensitivity. (Oh and my dad's a dentist.)"
- Nals33 liked Crest Pro-Health Night Fluoride Toothpaste ($4.29) — "When you use it at night, it feels like a normal toothpaste except for there's this smoothness to your teeth. I didn't pay much attention to it the first night I used it. But the next morning, I noticed that I still had that smoothness and clean-feeling mouth. Also, it definitely made my teeth whiter (though, not as much as with whitening strips), and it hasn't made my teeth sensitive. I will definitely be buying this toothpaste again."
- Righteothen said Peppermint Anticavity Fluoride Toothpaste by Tom's of Maine ($6.15) takes some getting used to — "This is not typical toothpaste. It's not as sweet, it doesn't foam as much, and the flavor is not as strong. The xylitol in this is the only sweetener, but it doesn't make you think 'sweet.' For those that think it doesn't taste as strong as your typical toothpaste, that is because it uses natural oils for the flavor, and those take a little to get used to. Once you are, it is quite flavorful."
