Review of Colgate Optic White Toothbrush + Built-In Whitening Pen
I received these products to sample via Influenster and Influenster's Target Spring Preview.
I have been using teeth whitening products for some time and have varied from using supplies available only through the dentist to over the counter products available at mass merchandisers.
The neat thing about this product is that the whitening gel is in its own pen that fits conveniently into the handle of the toothbrush. This makes it more likely that you'll whiten your teeth in my opinion.
I can't really think of any negatives of this product. I like the fact that the whitening gel doesn't burn my gums like other whitening gels I have used in the past and that its readily available for purchase at mass merchandisers like Target. Also I really like that the gel is easy to apply and you can make sure to apply it in between teeth too. This can be challenging with whitening strips. Colgate's Optic Whitening Pen does not require you to use trays over your teeth which is a helpful feature. You're not stuck at home with strips or trays on for any duration of time where you are limited in talking with people or going out. I think the consistency of the gel is perfect too; it doesn't get all over your mouth and seems to disintegrate after a few minutes.
Another feature I like is that the toothbrush is different than a traditional manual toothbrush. There are rubber nubs in the center of where you would normally find bristles give a nice gum massage.
I give this product a firm thumbs up! I've seen it for sale at Target recently for $12.99.
As I mentioned I received samples of this product to try via Influenster and Influenster's Target Spring Preview promotion for free but these opinions are my own.
Thanks for reading!
