When it comes to beauty, we take great care of our skin, hair, and makeup, but often overlook one of our most important features — our teeth!

Everyone knows that when you smile, you exude so much radiance and happiness to those around you. :D Whether you're wearing braces, dentures, or just flashing your teeth as they are, everyone has a unique smile to show off, which gives us all the more reason to take care of them properly.

From maintaining good oral health to keeping them stain-free, our teeth are critical to having a winning smile. :) That's why we need to ensure the quality of the products used on our teeth, especially when it comes to whitening products.

Speaking about whitening products, Colgate has just released the Colgate Optic White O2 toothpaste, which is formulated with active oxygen that whitens your teeth in just three days*

According to Colgate, this whitening toothpaste releases millions of warm, ultra-fine Active Oxygen bubbles that are absorbed right into the teeth's enamel, which whitens micro stains on teeth from the inside out.

We can't really imagine how that feels, so we decided to test out the Colgate Optic White O2 toothpaste for ourselves to see if it really works! Shiny white teeth, here we come. :D

We started off by following these three easy steps provided by Colgate in order to achieve the best results

STEP 1: Squeeze a small amount of whitening toothpaste onto your toothbrush, and begin brushing your teeth as usual

STEP 2: Continue brushing for two minutes to ensure complete cleansing

STEP 3: Rinse, and repeat the steps every morning and night

Here's what we thought after incorporating the toothpaste into our daily beauty routine:

Upon using a small amount of Colgate Optic White O2 toothpaste as instructed, we found that it had a super warming sensation as we brushed our pearly whites! However, we found out that this reaction is normal, and is in fact an indicator that the formula is working :D

Plus, the toothpaste also became foamy and bubbly as we continued to brush, which we deduced were the active oxygen bubbles being released. We thought that would be it, but we were pleasantly left with a cooling and refreshing herby, wintergreen mint flavour after every use. At first, it was a lil strange, experiencing a warming sensation while brushing and then a cooling sensation right after, but we got used to it pretty quickly.

As we continued to use it, we noticed that our teeth did appear slightly whiter than when we first started out. However, we'll probably need to keep using it to see what the long-term results are. Other than that, it also was great in keeping our breath fresh throughout the day, as we were fasting, hehe.

All in all, this sugar-free, gluten free, and vegan toothpaste is a great choice for those who wish to achieve a radiant smile, thanks to its key ingredient, active oxygen

Colgate believes that you are at your most beautiful when your smile lights up, and this revolutionary beauty essential is here to help you unleash your true self with your biggest, unguarded smile. :D
