Toothbrush, toothpaste and mouth wash......

Every now and then I qualify to test and review things through BZZ Agent  Just recently I was contacted to try and review the Crest Pro Health range of products.

They sent me a package of toothpaste, a toothbrush and some mouthwash (more than what is in the photograph.)
I have been trying these for a couple of weeks now and these are my thoughts.

LOVE, LOVE the toothbrush.  It has some white plastic things on the side of the brush that sort of massage and help clean the gums.  They are so soft and comfortable and it makes me want to clean my teeth longer.  I know strange eh?  I will be buying this type of toothbrush exclusively from now on.  The handle is also chunky which makes it a lot easier to hold when you have stiff fingers in the morning from arthritis.

The toothpaste is good, lovely fresh minty taste and not at all pasty.  I am very lucky that I don't suffer from bad breath, or at least no one has ever told me I have bad breath, but my mouth feels fresh for a while after brushing.  I haven't really noticed if my teeth are any whiter but as I am a big tea drinker the whitening aspect of the toothpaste is probably fighting a loosing battle with the tea anyhow.

I did test the mouthwash but as I am not a fan of mouthwash anyway, so it wasn't going to score big with me.  But in all fairness it tasted fine and did the trick, but I won't be using it again as all that gargling isn't me.

So out of the three products, the toothbrush gets a 10 out of 10 and I am converted.  The toothpaste gets an 8 out of 10 as that was fine.  The mouthwash I am not going to score even though I did try it, dh did use it and he gave it a 10 out of 10 for the freshness and how fresh his mouth felt afterwards.

Have you tried any of these products?  

Oh and I should add I DO NOT FLOSS either, that is just plain icky, icky, icky.  I do go to the dentist every six months though and for my age my teeth are fine.

Hubby likes the pro-health stuff... I only use organic toothpaste (no chemicals, etc...) and an electric toothbrush. I"m also a floss addict... lol!

I love a decent toothbrush. It sounds silly and is such a little thing, but they make such a difference. I don't floss or use mouthwash either :/ I really probably should! Especially as I smoke and drink coffee!

That's cool! I would love to test new products. I will definitely check out the service you use and maybe get the opportunity to review some of these products too.

I love their toothbrush and it is because of the handle, bigger and has a good grip. haven't tried the toothpaste or mouthwash (I don't use mouth wash). I also don't floss, hate the soreness of my gums afterwards, I was told it eventually goes away. My teeth aren't good anyhow.

I was also chosen for the testing. I love the toothbrush it is so great. The toothpaste really works well. I don't have as bad morning breath that I had before. I like that the mouthwash has no alcohol in it so no stinging. I just signed up to do a Claritin campaign so looking forward to that. Clare

Good post. Does Crest toothpaste contain any hydrogen peroxide like their strips? I tried their strips once and it didn’t work at all for me so I switched to Stella white instead.
