Sugar ‘N Spice VoxBox Recap: Pearly Whites with Colgate Optic White

I was really excited to receive my first complimentary VoxBox from Influenster a couple of weeks ago!  Due to illness and a crazy schedule, I didn’t break into all of the products until the beginning of last week, but I definitely wasn’t disappointed.

The first of the products I tried was the Colgate Optic White Regimen. This included the Optic White toothpaste, toothbrush, and mouthwash.  I’m normally a Crest girl when it comes to toothpaste and my toothbrush decisions are all over the place, but I decided 5 days of using the Colgate routine couldn’t hurt, so I went for it.

I immediately fell in love with the toothbrush.  I have pretty sensitive gums, so I typically use a toothbrush with soft bristles, but sometimes soft bristles can come up short in making me feel like they are really cleaning my teeth.  The combination of different kinds of bristles on the Colgate toothbrush was perfect.  None of them were too stiff, but they worked in tandem to make me really feel like my teeth were getting clean.  They also have larger rubbery kind of bristles around the center bristles that kind of work like cups (check out the pictures below).  They added an interesting sensation to the experience.  I will seek out a Colgate Optic White toothbrush the next time mine needs replacing, for sure!


As for the toothpaste and mouthwash, they weren’t bad.  I definitely saw a difference in the whiteness of my teeth after using both products, in conjunction with the toothbrush, after just two days.  The flavor of the toothpaste was fine and wasn’t radically different from the Crest flavor I’m used to.  Depending on how the price point compares when I actually go shopping for new toothpaste, I may end up purchasing it instead of Crest.

As for the mouthwash…  I am not a fan of mouthwash in general.  I think they are super harsh.  My eyes water just about every time I use one.  The Colgate Optic White mouthwash is definitely not like that.  The only thing that bothered me about it was that the mouthwash had a slightly sour flavor.  However, I’ll take that over harsh over the top mint anyday!  I have a hard time making mouthwash a part of my regular routine, but if I can make that happen, I’ll buy this mouthwash in the future.

So, thumbs up Colgate, and well done!  I’m quite happy with the Colgate products from my VoxBox!
