I have never really blogged about toothpaste before, I always thought it to be such a boring thing to mention on the blog. But the more I think about it the more I realize that where would my beautiful lipstick and smile be without good looking teeth! Taking care of your teeth should be a important part of your daily routine and lets face it we brush our teeth twice a day so why not put effort into the product that we use.
I have been trying out the Elgydium Whitening toothpaste for just over 3 weeks now. It is pleasant tasting and lovely to brush with, it does have a slight back taste that is a tad bit salty but you hardly notice that. The toothpaste its self is thick and white. I took a before photo weeks ago and then yesterday took an after photo, I tried to take the pics with the same lighting and conditions. You can notice a slight difference, the yellow stain of my teeth does appear faded and they look more polished. I think for only 3 or so weeks of use that is a good sign. I would gather that if I continued to use it daily for a longer period that the result would be more noticeable.
I also used the Elgydium sensitive just to try it out, I really like it but can not comment too much on its effect, I haven’t had a chance to test it because I was busy trying the whitening one. It is a thick green paste that has a very refreshing taste and is pleasant to brush with. The brands quality seems good and is not over priced so that is a bonus.
