The Good: Tastes good, Actually whitens teeth, Inexpensive
The Bad: Does not whiten teeth as fast as I would have liked.
The Basics: Aquafresh Extreme Clean Whitening Action Mint Blast toothpaste is a surprisingly fun and fresh toothpaste!
Sometimes, I am absolutely baffled by my local stores and their clearance sections. I get it when the product is close to an expiration date or has an obviously trendy nature as the trend has passed (a lot of pomegranate stuff going that way these days!), but not when the product is worthwhile. Aquafresh Extreme Clean Whitening Action Mint Blast is a toothpaste that does what it promises, with a flavor that is vibrant and enough to wake one up right away.
My wife and I purchased the 5.6 oz. tube of Aquafresh Extreme Clean Whitening Action Mint Blast last months ago and since then we have been using it twice daily. Despite that, the key selling point of the toothpaste, the whitening aspect, has not delivered exceptional results very quickly. After about four weeks of using Aquafresh Extreme Clean Whitening Action Mint Blast twice a day, I noticed less yellow on my teeth, which confirmed that whitening aspect of the toothpaste was working, but it was not working all that quickly.
Aquafresh Extreme Clean Whitening Action Mint Blast is an inexpensive, but surprisingly effective toothpaste with several selling point functions. It comes in a classic tube design with a plastic top that unscrews from the tube. The 5.6 oz. tube is six inches long by two inches wide and it tapers near the end with the nozzle. When the cap is unscrewed, there is a hard plastic nozzle which directs the product out of the tube and onto one's toothbrush. Toothpaste is easily dispensed from this type tube by flattening the plastic tube from the bottom toward the top and this also allows the user to get the most out of it.
To use Aquafresh Extreme Clean Whitening Action Mint Blast, simply dispense a small amount onto the bristles of a toothbrush and bring the brush up to your mouth and spread the toothpaste over teeth using the brush. Then agitate the toothpaste into a foam to clean teeth entirely and expectorate the product (the process takes about a minute). Rinse mouth to remove any excess toothpaste and theoretically, the process should be complete and your teeth ought to feel wonderful.
The reason I continue to use Aquafresh Extreme Clean Whitening Action Mint Blast is that it seems to work very well and it tastes good. Since starting to use this toothpaste, I have developed no cavities and there has been no noticeable tartar or plaque build-up on my teeth. Add to that, my teeth have gotten lighter. Aquafresh Extreme Clean Whitening Action Mint Blast only whitened my teeth about one shade on the color shade chart after a month of use. Despite not claiming to be tartar control, I have noticed less tartar on my teeth, though I suspect the fact that I increased my regular flossing may be as responsible for that as the toothpaste.
Aquafresh Extreme Clean Whitening Action Mint Blast significantly freshens breath. The toothpaste tastes minty, with a strong peppermint flavor. It has an instant cooling effect to it that makes my whole mouth taste fresh and clean. The taste of mint is appropriately strong and the intensity of the toothpaste is refreshing. It instantly makes my teeth, gums, tongue, cheeks and throat feel cool and fresh. After brushing with Aquafresh Extreme Clean Whitening Action Mint Blast, my mouth left me feeling quite a bit more confident about doing such basic things as kissing my wife and talking to people.
Aquafresh Extreme Clean Whitening Action Mint Blast works well and though it might not whiten very fast, it surprised me how good the Aquafresh toothpaste could be!
