When it comes to teeth, I like them white - and I mean, like Simon Cowell white - so I'm always looking for ways to whiten and maintain a bright smile. I've had my teeth professionally whitened twice, used Crest strips, always use a whitening toothpaste and mouthwash, floss, don't smoke or drink coffee/red wine and visit my dentist every 6 months. So when I was asked if I'd like to try Retardex toothpaste and mouthwash - clinically proven to whiten teeth in 14 days - I was definately up for it.
Firstly, my boyfriend laughed at the name...he's immature. Secondly, the mouthwash bottle is the exact same size and shape as my bottle of acetone I use to remove my nails polish so I keep having a momentary panic that I've picked the wrong bottle up!
The toothpaste tastes quite clinical, kind of like the mouth rinse you have at the dentist, but not unpleasant. It doesn't really foam much, which I prefer, and it's low abrasion. This toothpaste definately made my teeth feel really clean all day (I used it with an electric toothbrush FYI). The mouthwash is unflavoured so kind of just tastes like water, which is quite unusual; it does come with a mint flavour sachet that you can add if you prefer minty fresh breath (I do and I added it, it was fairly minty at first but the taste kind of wore off after a few days).
