***REVIEW*** Arm & Hammer Truly Radiant Toothpaste

My Smiley 360* kit for Arm & Hammer's Truly Radiant arrived yesterday.

Since I got home late (and had already brushed my teeth), I started using the Arm & Hammer this morning. Of course, I will have to come back and update this review when I have used the toothpaste for at least a week. (Did I mention that my Smiley360 kit included a very nice Spinbrush from Arm & Hammer - batteries included? It did and I am loving it.)

In the mornings, I brush my teeth always for at least three or four minutes. This is because I am nervous about damage from the methotrexate and other meds I take for my sarcoidosis. Usually, I end up with lots and lots of foaming from the pastes I have used. It's a little bit messy. The first thing I noticed with the Truly Radiant is that the paste did not foam and run like others do. Because of the lack of foam, I was actually wondering just how clean my teeth were getting! The instructions on the Spinbrush were to use it for at least 2 minutes. Running short on time, I kept to the 2 minutes instead of my usualy three or four.



Not only did my teeth feel really clean, I found it easy to rinse my mouth with just a swish of water. As for the whitening effects: yes, I could already (after the one brushing) tell that my morning coffee stains were gone. My breath felt clean - no overpowering lingering of the mint-flavor from the paste - which I really like. (I hate any kind of lingering flavors in toothpastes!)

I can't wait to check back later this weekend with an update on this product.

  1. Yes i bought some today which is the19th and I'm amazed how good my teeth looked after i brushed. Tryna find reviews for it but it is a new toothpaste but i love it.

  2. It's good stuff. Jae. Let me know what you think after a week. I'll update the review then too.

  3. I've been using it now for 3 days, and I am a huge fan. My whole mouth feels cleaner, and It doesn't leave a minty overpowering taste like my last tooth paste. Huge fan, thanks for the blog, it helped steer me in the right direction!

  4. Right on, Leslie! I'm still loving it. A fellow blogger of mine says she's going to have her son use it to see if it helps with staining from childhood meds. (You know what I like about it after a couple weeks' use? My teeth look as good as they do when I wear red lipstick! LOL - all us girls love that trick, don't we?)
