My Reason for Trying The Toothpaste
I have been using toothpaste that is fluoride free and made for sensitive teeth for a few years now. It has made a huge difference in how my teeth feel. The Potassium in all toothpastes for sensitive teeth does a great job with reducing sensitivity to cold and hot, plus just general tooth aches caused by sensitivity.
I have tried two other toothpastes. First I tried Sensodyne and while that works I hated the taste and the toothpaste burned my sensitive gums.
Then I tried Tom’s of Maine which I really like but when I went to Whole Foods last they only had the variety with fluoride. I do not use fluoride toothpaste because it can cause issues with hormones in the body (particularly thyroid) I have enough issues with my hormones and do not want to take anything that can further disrupt my endocrine system.
The Tube: Kiss My Face Sensitive Toothpaste comes in a 3.4 oz plastic tube that is packaged in a box. The tube is like most other plastic tubes. I am not a fan of plastic tubes but most toothpaste comes in them. Still I wish it was in a metal tube, because it is easier to squeeze out the last drop with no waste. Plus I worry about plastics in the environment.
I do like that instead of a screw off cap, the tube has a flip top with a wide cover so you can set the tube of toothpaste up on your counter. Since this toothpaste is not super thick, it helps the toothpaste get to the opening so when you go to use it, it is easier to squeeze from the tube. This is especially true when the tube is almost empty and helps avoid waste.
The Look of the Toothpaste: The toothpaste is a light green transparent looking toothpaste. It is not overly thin but could in my opinions be slightly thicker. It does contain aloe vera and I would say that the consistency reminds me of a thick aloe vera gel.
The Taste and Feel: has a mild minty taste with a hint of citrus. It really is refreshing but subtle. You can feel a little grit in the toothpaste which helps to remove any stains you might have. I like that the toothpaste does not burn the inside of my mouth like so many mainstream toothpastes do.
How well it works
To clean my teeth: Kiss My Face Sensitive Toothpaste works well to clean my teeth and remove stains. I use it twice a day and feel it does a little better job than the Toms of Maine that I was using. I like that it is a gel rather than a paste and feel it rinses away more easily than pastes.
To Reduce Sensitivity: Of course the main reason I chose Kiss My Face Sensitive Toothpaste is to reduce sensitivity. For that it works just as well as any other I have tried. Since they all have the same active ingredient it is not surprising that they all work about the same. I do find that this one is easier on my gums and less irritating than some toothpastes.
Whitening: Kiss My Face Sensitive Toothpaste does specifically say it is also a whitening toothpaste and I feel it does a good job without harsh chemicals. My teeth are generally whiter when using this toothpaste twice a day.
