Imii Tries… White Glo Whitening Toothpaste

whiteglo whiteglo1For the last two weeks, I have been using White Glo whitening toothpaste night and day (so I guess like any normal toothpaste really…)

I first stumbled across an ad for the toothpaste in Elle magazine, right at the back. You know when you’re done reading so you read ALL the adverts? Yeah. That. Weirdly, unlike the adverts for average looking jewellery and magic weight loss aids, the brand really caught my attention and I immediately set to work googling reviews and suppliers. I picked up the formula designed for coffee and tea drinkers, complete with toothbrush and floss-picks, for just over £3 on Amazon. Regardless of whitening properties, that’s a pretty good deal for any kind of toothpaste/toothbrush combo.

So instructions wise, the idea is pretty darn simple. Brush your teeth twice a day using the toothpaste. So, again, standard procedure. So, one Friday evening I set to it and was absolutely amazed. Obviously after one brush there isn’t a colour change but what I did notice was how incredibly clean my teeth felt. Having read other reviews, I now realise that many others also experienced this. Seriously, my teeth were squeaky clean. Not that my teeth aren’t normally clean after brushing but seriously, SO CLEAN. I even went to the dentist a week into my little trial and she remarked on how clean my teeth were. You could eat dinner out of my mouth. (Please don’t.)

Now to the whitening. Yeah so I don’t actually know. I am massively self-conscious of my teeth – I broke my front teeth when I was seven and have had a crippling fear of tooth-smiling ever since – so after hours of worry and several tears I decided not to take a before photo to compare it to. I’m really sorry about that. I understand that me just saying a thing did a thing without proof is really damn frustrating!

I think that White Glo has made a little bit of difference in the three weeks that I’ve been using it. My teeth are certainly cleaner which does of course help with not getting any more stained, and they do glow a little brighter. I mean, there’s no way I’d call it a miracle treatment or anything like that – it just cleans your teeth for pete’s sake.

Would I buy White Glo again? Well, I’m not sure. For £3, to include a toothbrush and floss sticks is pretty cool, and it does clean my teeth pretty damn well. So yeah, I think I might put another order in when I eventually run out, maybe. But would I buy it for its whitening alone? Nah mate. Get a box kit from Superdrug if you want glistening pearly whites (or talk to your trained dentist…)

    This looks good…what kind of flavour is it? http://www.lifewithoutafunsponge.com/

    I was pleasantly surprised to see that whitening toothpaste actually works. But like you said, it’s no miracle treatment. Your teeth become a little bit whiter, but it doesn’t make them as white as they show us in those TV commercials haha.

      After a while using it I have started to notice that some staining has gone so it does work, but it doesn’t ‘whiten’ them – it just cleans them haha! xx

    Thanks for this review! I love that it makes your teeth feel clean, that sounds like it would be great for getting rid of plaque!

    I read somewhere that whitening toothpastes don’t actually really work, as the chemicals that are used in other whitening products can’t be put in toothpaste, because they’re harmful if ingested, and could easily be done by children.

      Oh wow I’ve never heard that – that’s really interesting and does explain why none of them really work! I definitely think my teeth are whiter now, but as I say, I think its because of how good the paste is at cleaning and not anything its doing extra! xx
