Around the same time I found the free sample of the garnier fruits marvelous oil, I found out about a website that sends you products to review no matter your follower amount. This site is called Bzzagent.com. I signed up, not really expecting too much, because sometimes sites like this ignore you forever. It took a month to get my first offer, which I denied because it was for dog food that my picky dog refuses to eat. Then about a week or two later, I got this offer.
In the mail I got three Crest toothpastes from their Be Creative line. The flavors of them are quite interesting. I’m a very strict spearmint girl, always have been. Even in gum. So when I was reading their flavors, I didn’t know what I was getting myself into. There is Vanilla Mint Spark, Lime Spearmint Zest, and Mint Chocolate Trek.
The toothpaste itself says that it cleans, fights cavities, whitens, and freshens breath. I’m assuming it does all of that. It does clean, I haven’t been using it long enough to even for the cavity fighting and whitening to start, and it does freshen breath. If it didn’t, I don’t think you could call it toothpaste.
Each box has a different description; Be Inspired: Arouse your senses where the serenity of vanilla meets the exhilaration of cool peppermint. Be Adventurous: Explore outside your boundaries with a touch of smooth chocolate infused with refreshing mint. Be Dynamic: Energize your morning with a bold burst of lime topped off with bright spearmint. I found them to been inviting.
The first one I tried was the Vanilla Mint Spark. Vanilla is one of my favorite flavors, so I thought that this one should be first. It was pretty good. I was expecting some fake vanilla flavor, but it was pretty legit tasting. I think this one is definitely my favorite. It has the perfect distinction of vanilla and mint, neither over power the other. I love it.
The second one I tried was the Mint Chocolate Trek. I wasn’t too sure about this one, because I’m not a fan of mint chocolate anything. So I was a little bit hesitant. The paste itself has little brown spots in it, I thought that looked cool. I didn’t even get to finish brushing my teeth, not because of the flavor, but because my mouth started feeling like little pins were being stuck all over my mouth. I’m assuming I’m allergic to one of the ingredients that in this one, but not the vanilla one. I just don’t know. Before that started happening the flavor was fine. The chocolate was a little strong, but you know when you don’t like something it always stands out? I think it’s because of that. The chocolate flavor is also fake tasting, it taste like chocolate lip balm. I’m not a fan of this one, and won’t be purchasing this one in the future.
Last but not least, I tried the Lime Spearmint Zest. I assumed that I would like this one because of the spearmint, but not 100% like it because of the lime but, I really like this one. It was a little scary because it does have a few of the same ingredients as the mint chocolate, but thankfully it didn't have the same effects. The paste looks sparkly and I love anything with a shimmer to it. The lime is not over powering, it tastes amazing, and it doesn’t feel like I’m brushing my teeth with razor blades so what ever the same ingredients are in this one are not what bother me.
These toothpastes are very interesting and I didn’t think that I would have liked any of them and it turns out that I do. I’m probably going to be buying bigger tubes of the vanilla mint spark and the lime spearmint zest. I’m going to give the chocolate mint trek to my sister to see if she has the same reaction to it, and if not see if she likes it better than myself.
