Reviews for Colgate Total® Toothpaste by Colgate
Rating: Apr 6, 2014 11:39am
I received it as a free gift with the purchase of Colgate mouth wash. I like it provides 12 hours protection against bacterial plaque which is great. Suitable for those who dislike strong minty taste, but for me it is basically tasteless. The paste is thick and does not really foam. It does not really give me a very clean and polished feeling. Will not repurchase for I am not comfortable with using triclosan.
Overall a basic toothpaste with mild taste and does its job.

Fangin' for it!
What they claim: "By using Colgate Total Original, you will get clinically proven, 12 hour protection against plaque bacteria. Colgate Total Original, with regular use, provides the following benefits: Prevents Cavities, Fights Gingivitis, Removes Plaque, Strengthens Enamel, Removes Stains, Prevents Tartar Build-Up, Freshens Breath."
My take: How could I not review this product. I have been using Colgate Total Original for years. Seriously, this has been a go-to in my bathroom for I don't know how long. Yes, I've tried other toothpastes, I've toyed with whitening products, I've thought about switching, however when you have found your tried and true product, you just know. This is it for me. The one thing you know you will have in your bathroom probably for the rest of your life, you will pass down to your children and they will pass on to theirs. It is a staple, like baby powder, soap, sugar, shampoo, conditioner. It's the stuff you are raised with. A basic hygiene product. It's minty, fresh, simple, and it does exactly what it says. It doesn't blow your top off with overly mintyness. It doesn't dry your mouth out. It consistently delivers, and for that, Colgate, I thank you.

I have re-purchased this toothpaste many times
Colgate Total Toothpaste is one of my favourite toothpastes.
It has a pleasant minty taste, that is not overly strong. It foams well in your mouth and most importantly, the toothpaste leaves my teeth feeling clean and smooth and my breath smelling fresh.
I do mix this product up with a whitening toothpaste every so often, but for general cleaning, I think this product does a great job.

This variant of Colgate toothpaste is the one our household continues to repurchase. It is a general purpose toothpaste that foams really well and has a nice slightly mint taste that is highly suitable for all ages. After use, my teeth feel clean and 'refreshed'. The tube lasts ages and frequently on sale which makes this product a winner.

Colgate is the only brand I truly trust regarding my teeth. This toothpaste does not only just clean my teeth but helps to protect it from cavities, bacteria and other nasties.
It has a nice pleasant taste. It leaves my mouth feeling clean and fresh.
I will continue to purchase.

This was recommended to me by my ortho and dentist. It has a great minty taste, but not too strong for the kids and it makes my mouth feel clean!

I like hype. I like that this toothpaste claims to strengthen, fight, battle. It's a war in there, you know! Whether Colgate power is helping me win, I don't know. In the four years of using it, I haven't had a filling. My dentist does always have to clean off tartar - a battle he says is fought mostly with brushing, not by toothpaste. I like using it, though. My mouth does feel clean. The taste isn't annoyingly strong, just the traditional mint. It's good stuff.

I've been using this toothpaste for a couple of years - since my dentist first recommended it to me. It has a nice minty taste that lasts quite well and my teeth feel "sparkling" clean after using it.
I especially like the packaging for the 160g size as it stands up on its end. This is very convenient for me.
I'm not sure about the anti bacterial claims but if the dentist recommended it they must have some basis in fact.

Elimitates bad breath
I really like the effectiveness of this toothpaste. The consistency is a bit gritty though and it does leave the gritty feeling behind. My boyfriend used to have horrible breath especially in the mornings and this is the only toothpaste I've found that helps with this. He still gets morning breath of course but it's nowhere near as bad. I also find this toothpaste helps with sensitive teeth. I use sensodyne on and off and usually find the effects of that are maintained longer with Colgate total than other toothpastes. I switch up my toothpastes a fair bit (according to what is on special ha ha) but this is now an essential for my bf!

i don't know if it's because i've changed toothpastes
but i don't really like this one
i feel like having i use it my mouth goes dry and doesn't smell that great
it feels nice when you're brushing your teeth and smooth but not after
although i do see my teeth brighting and looking cleaner just not so much the smell
