Review: Colgate Optic White Regimen

*Disclosure* I received the Colgate Optic White regimen complimentary from Influenster. All opinions are 100% honest and my own!

Hi guys! Today I'm going to be reviewing the Colgate Optic White regimen that was kindly sent to me from Influenster. I received these products in the Sugar & Spice VoxBox about a month and a half ago. Here's my review on these products!

First off, as you can see, the toothbrush is still in the packaging because I have to use a super soft bristled toothbrush and this one is soft. I know you probably are thinking there's not much of a difference, but for my teeth, there is. I have the most sensitive teeth on the planet so I don't want to chance it and hurt my teeth or gums. I'm giving this toothbrush to my fiance.

I probably should've pictured this differently but I'll start with the toothpaste. I have to admit, I'm not the biggest fan of this stuff. Using it is fine, it foams up really well and it feels like it gets in between my teeth nicely to clean them out. However, the taste of this stuff is pretty nasty is my opinion. Even though it's sparkling mint flavor, it tastes more like chemicals. I truly don't have a problem with how this cleans my teeth at all, but I seriously can't get past the taste. The tube contains 4 ounces of product and it retails for $2.99.

Now for the mouthwash. I can't even begin to explain how much I dislike this product! Again, I have no problem with how this performs. I can feel it getting in between my teeth like the toothpaste does, but the taste is even worse than the toothpaste. It says it's sparkling fresh mint, but it tastes very acidic and it burns my mouth a bit. An 8 ounce bottle of this retails for $2.99.

I can't really tell if this regimen actually helps with whitening because I haven't used it consistently enough due to how much I dislike the flavor. I also have a prescription toothpaste that I have to use at night, so if this regimen works better when used morning and night, then I can't be a very good judge. Honestly, spend your money on a different toothpaste and mouthwash. I typically don't mind Colgate products, but these were a dud in my opinion. 

I'm still very appreciative that Influenster sent me these products in the Sugar & Spice VoxBox, but these particular products just weren't my cup of tea! I love the Dickinson's witch hazel wipes though, and I'm currently uploading a video of my review on them as I write this!

Have any of you tried this regimen?


  1. I feel the same way about these particular products, I just really didnt like the taste and found other toothpastes did the same and whitened better..great review!

    1. Glad I'm not the only one who feels this way!

  4. Hi there,

    I was planning to try this range once i'm out of my current toothpaste but now that you mentioned that it tastes bad, Im having second thoughts on it.

    I followed you via GFC. Coime visit mine :)


    1. Yeah, definitely go with something else. I'm dreading having to use everything up. I may just throw out the mouthwash since I dislike it so much. I hate wasting things though.

      Thanks for stopping by, and I'm following you back :)
