National smile month is here! Running from 16th May up until the 16th June, it is in its 40th year running. I’m back today with a review of the Janina Ultra White Maxiwhite Toothpaste*. I find that many whitening products claim so much, but deliver so little, so at first I was slightly apprehensive about trying it out.
Janina have a range of different low abrasive whitening toothpastes. They claim to remove surface staining without containing any harsh abrasives. All the toothpastes contain two natural fruit enzymes, Pineapple and Papaya. They work together to gently whiten your teeth without causing damage to tooth enamel.
All of the claims sound great and I have been trying to find a good whitening product for a while that doesn’t make my teeth sensitive. So I have been using this toothpaste for a couple of weeks now, twice a day, and I have to say I am super impressed! Obviously my teeth didn’t become gleaming overnight, but I have noticed a difference in the colour. Even my boyfriend commented that my teeth looked whiter and he didn’t even know I was using this toothpaste!
The toothpaste has a very strong but pleasant minty taste, which makes my mouth feel and taste fresh. I was kind of expecting the taste and texture to not to be great because of its whitening claims, but it is just like a regular toothpaste with a really smooth feel to it, rather than being all gritty.
One of the main things I have noticed is that it doesn’t affect the sensitivity of my teeth. I don’t think I have come across any other whitening products that don’t make my teeth hurt, so I am loving this toothpaste. Because of this, I can 100% say that I will be repurchasing this. It is quite expensive for a toothpaste at £12.50 from Superdrug. But as I said before, this is the first whitening product that doesn’t hurt my teeth, and gives great results which I can hope will only get better.
I would love to try out the Janina Peroxide Free Whitening Strips next, if they are anything like this toothpaste! What is your favourite teeth whitening product?
