Colgate Optic White toothbrush, toothpaste and mouthwash review

**press sample**

Well. I was given the opportunity to try out some Colgate products through Influenster recently. My husband and I are pretty set on which toothpaste we use, and this was a HUGE difference for me.

The tube claims whiter teeth in one week, but I saw no difference. Granted my teeth aren't terribly stained by anything as I don't smoke or drink coffee, and only drink caramel-colored soda occasionally. Maybe I would have seen a bigger difference if my teeth were more discolored.

The toothbrush itself is very nice. I switched my toothbrush out for this one almost immediately. I have sensitive gums, and usually need a particular type of brush, but this one, for some reason, makes my teeth and gums feel better even though it's a little more stiff than my regular brush.

It's extremely minty. Actually, I'm not sure "extremely" is the right word. I'm still not entirely certain if the hair in my nose was singed when I used this to brush my teeth for the first time. It's THAT minty. It was like mint concentrate - just absolutely overwhelming. After brush my teeth the first time, I had to have a glass of water because my mouth was just not ready for mouthwash.

The mouthwash, thankfully, isn't as potent as the toothpaste. *phew* I'm not sure I could have handled them BOTH being so potent! haha
