Didn't really whiten
This is fine for me as a toothpaste but didn't really whiten my teeth, which makes it a bit to expensive for a regular toothpaste.
I have found that the aldi whitening toothpaste a much cheaper version that did make my teeth whiter.

Icy clean & fresh breath
I received this as part of my Glosscars 2013 prize.
This is an effective & pleasant toothpaste product. After regular use I did notice a slight whitening effect on my teeth. It leaves a lovely aftertaste in my mouth & helps keep my gums healthy. As usual, Colgate delivers with a great toothpaste product

Worth a try
I received this as part of my Glosscars 2013 prize pack. I am always willing to try a new toothpaste because I am still trying to find my favourite paste.
The best thing I like about this paste is that it stands up, so that makes it easier to use and to place on the bathroom counter. This is a unique factor which makes it easy to use and it reminds me of the pump toothpaste.
It is a pretty sea blue gel paste with little sparkles in it. I like the look of gel pastes because they always seem to be fresher than regular paste.
I have a very sensitive mouth in the sense that I am never able to use any whitening paste continuously because I get some sort of an irritation on the inside of my mouth. I used this paste and varied it with others so that my mouth didn't get used to this one alone.
The taste is minty, not super strong, but pretty strong mint. The mint taste didn't last very long for me, but that's okay because as mentioned, my mouth is pretty sensitive anyway.

I got this in the most recent beautorium and I was definitely intrigued by all the positive reviews on here. I have been using it for around a month now and I have definitely noticed whitening. The parts of my teeth where I pay most attention to definitely became brighter than the other parts. Rather than seeing my my teeth become pearl whites, they became brighter like their dullness was removed. The effects may be different for you - I drink a lot of tea and have done for years so no doubt there is some staining. I did notice a little sensitivity after using this but it's not too dramatic nor to a level which concerns me. Additionally, I find the product to be great, it has a pleasant taste, foams nicely and is really like every other good old toothpaste except for the brightening. It does seem to work for me and i will definitely continue to use it. Not sure if I'll be repurchasing because it is a little pricey for the small amount but I'll keep using it for now.

I love this toothpaste. It isnt as harsh on my teeth as other toothpastes are, ie the colgate whitening. this one makes my teeth feel minty fresh and I love it!

I was lucky enough to receive a free tube via Colgate’s Facebook promotion last year, however I am not a huge fan of this toothpaste.
In terms of packaging, it comes in a stand-up tube, which is handy, but it doesn’t make a big difference for me. The toothpaste is a clear blue gel, which I at first expected to be a strong minty toothpaste, but it isn’t. The instructions say to use this toothpaste 3 times a day, to achieve whiter teeth in 7 days. To be honest, I don’t know anyone who would brush their teeth 3 times a day. I work full-time and bringing a toothbrush and toothpaste to work is just awkward! I have only used it toothpaste 2 times a day, for the duration of almost 2 months. I have noticed my upper front teeth have become a tiny bit whiter, but not much. Well, I know the RRP for this toothpaste is well under $10 so I wasn’t expecting miracles. Overall I think this is OK as a normal toothpaste, but not very user-friendly. I didn’t have stained teeth to start with, so the result was minimal for me. It might work better for others, especially if they can take the time to brush their teeth 3 times a day. Unfortunately I don’t think I will purchase this.

Glosscars 2013 - Minty Fresh, Brighter Teeth
As a massive fan of coffee, tea and the occasional glass of wine, I purchased the Colgate MaxWhite ONE toothpaste in the hopes that it would leave my teeth looking a little bit brighter and whiter. To start off, I really love the packaging of this toothpaste. It comes with a secure flip top cap which ensures there are no spillages or mess. The tube comes in an inverted shape which is great because the product drains down towards the top by itself. I also like that the tube is able to stand up by itself on my bathroom cabinet.
The toothpaste directions advise to use it three times a day for two minutes each time. I usually only brush my teeth morning and night as I am not home throughout the day but I made a conscious effort to brush three times a day for one week. The toothpaste disperses as a blue gel paste with glitter particles throughout. The gel formula works really well to spread throughout my teeth and it also foams really easy. The toothpaste has a minty taste to it which is quite enjoyable. The toothpaste leaves my teeth feeling clean and minty fresh. Another thing I enjoy about this whitening toothpaste over others is that it does not have a strong whitening bleach smell to it even though it contains whitening accelerators.
In terms of results, at around the fourth day mark I could notice a difference in the shade of my teeth. The results are not dramatic (and the product doesn’t promise they will be!), but the difference is noticeable. After the first week my teeth were left looking much brighter and surface stains were definitely more diminished. I would say that the product does what it says in that it left my teeth up to one shade lighter. The effects of the toothpaste made me more comfortable with my smile which was great. I think that the Colgate MaxWhite toothpaste would be great to use to top up the brightness of your teeth every now and then, and also to help maintain your pearly whites.

In a quest for whiter teeth I first used Colgate MaxWhite ONE original toothpaste which is not a miracle product but I definitely saw improvements while using it. I absolutely loved the super fresh mint flavour of the original toothpaste so when Colgate maxWhite ONE ICE came out I just had to try it to see how it compared!
Of course this toothpaste has an amazing low price just like the original maxwhite ONE which is hardly much more than a standard toothpaste. It also possesses the same appealing shiny silver tube that comes in a shiny silver box that just gives it an edge over other toothpastes. The tube is easier to use than the standard tube – with a large flip top lid which is easy to open and somehow less messy. Less mess means the top doesn’t get clogged up with dried toothpaste so the lid always closes properly. The large lid and design of the tube also means you can stand it on its end on the bench if you wish.
However, the flavour of this toothpaste definitely disappointed me - it is no where near as good as the original. To be honest it does not have that much of a flavour and I definitely would not say ‘power mint’ means powerful mint as I expected it would (I would describe the original as power mint though…). I find the flavour does not last in my mouth and often I feel like my mouth is not fresh for as long as it should be after brushing.
After using this toothpaste a while I would say it’s other effects are the same as the original. I wouldn’t say I have seen a dramatic improvement in the whiteness of my teeth (however my teeth were fairly white to begin with so perhaps this is why?) and my teeth definitely aren’t dazzling supermodel white…. but hey it’s not going to be an absolute miracle product! My teeth are looking brighter though and a little whiter. I’ll also add that the instructions say you should use it 3 times a day, but I rarely get that 3rd brush in and usually would only do it twice so this could be why I haven’t seen improvements to such a great extent. I think that 3 brushes a day may be quite a challenge for a lot of people, and generally not a common routine in our busy lives, so this may let a lot of people down results wise.
My overall opinion about this toothpaste is neutral but I would not purchase this again. I guess I am leaning more to the negative side because I love the original MaxWhite ONE a lot, and this one is just not up to that standard in terms of flavour (and the flavour is what really did it for me with that product…toothpaste is supposed to leave your mouth feeling fresh and this just doesn’t). However for $6 the cost is comparable to that of standard toothpaste (a little more expensive because the tube is smaller, but this is our teeth we are talking about and they are worth it) so I would say give it a go as there is some whitening/brightening effect there. This flavour would be more suited to those who don’t want a strong mint flavour….it’s personal preference really, but I’d recommend the original over this one.

I have slightly yellowing teeth so I've been looking for a product to brighten my smile up so I tried this. Firstly I love the packaging. Very eye-catching and it has a very secure lid - great for travelling. The toothpaste itself left my mouth feeling really icy fresh and that freshness lasted ages. It also leaves me teeth feeling more clean than other toothpastes. I have been using it twice a day for months now and my teeth are only maybe slightly whiter which is why it doesn't get 5 stars. I was hoping the product would work quicker but I will continue to use this product and see how it goes. Overall it is a great toothpaste but maybe not the holy grail of whitening toothpastes.

GLOSSCARS 2013 - Minty Magic
I'm on to my second box of this toothpaste so you know that I really like it! This is a toothpaste that really does whiten teeth fast and it has a great minty taste too unlike some whitening products. Here are some of my ponderings on this product:
PACKAGING: Max White One Ice comes in a largish white box with the same colour scheme that you see on the tube itself. I love the look of this product. The ice-blue at the bottom and silver top with white crystal starburst make it look quite cool - literally! It makes you think of a dazzling white glacier, cold and pristine. The effect is dramatic and attractive.
The tube itself is quite a good size at 103g and unlike most toothpastes it has a flat lid so it can stand upright on your bathroom shelf and so takes up less space. It has a flp-top lid which has a slight ridge so you can easily lift it open. The lid also clicks shut and prevents gluggy toothpaste spills.
The toothpaste is packaged in a a plastic squeezy tube (for want of a better name) that makes it easy to dispense the toothpaste without the tube losing its shape or preventing it from standing upright.
PRODUCT: The colour of this product is amazing. Without sounding like Miranda Priestly from The Devil Wears Prada, this is a gorgeous cerulean blue that makes you feel fresher just looking at it. The taste is also really minty and refreshing. Colgate call it ''power mint'' and the taste is stronger than the original Max White toothpaste. It really does make your mouth and breath fresh. This also cleans well - my teeth feel nice and smooth after use.
While I did find the original MaxWhite One caused senstivity problems with my teeth, I haven't had any problems with MaxWhite One Ice. I think overall it's quite a gentle formula and the gel seems to be kinder to sensitive gums.
In terms of its whitening ability, I have noticed that my teeth are a shade whiter too after a couple of weeks which is something considering I drink a lot of coffee and tea.
I think that at $5.99 this has to be one of the best whitening deals around. I will defiinitely be returning to this toothpaste in future and would recommend it to anyone on a budget or who would like to whiten their teeth in a hurry. This is a great product that works and won't break the bank.
