I always love trying new things, whether it’s a new flavor of gum, a new line of hair products, or even a different designing method. Trying new things allows you to expand your knowledge and experiences, and ultimately (in my humble opinion), makes you a cool and open-minded individual.
So, when Crest came out with its new Pro-Health line of toothpaste, I thought I’d give it a go.
The packaging was what first attracted my attention. The friendly blue gradient with the glow coming from the logo radiates the feeling of cleanliness and coolness, two factors you’d want to have in a toothpaste.
The medical caduceus symbol also appears to “legitimize” Crest’s claim that its product is better than the average toothpaste: “…With its unique Polyfluorite System,™ [it] is the first and only toothpaste recognized by the American Dental Association to address all these areas: Cavities, Gingivitis, Plaque, Teeth Sensitivity and Whitening.”
All of these factors were very positive things in my eyes, and with a winning name like “Pro-Health,” (is anyone anti-health?) how could anyone say no?
Well, for one thing, my tastebuds could. I was really turned off with the taste of the toothpaste. It wasn’t as minty or as refreshing as I was used to experiencing from my usual Crest Multicare toothpaste (which I just discovered is being discontinued…sad). It was a disappointment considering the amount of R&D and branding that probably had gone into this toothpaste, and how much I had looked forward to trying it.
In conclusion, I don’t regret trying this toothpaste—I will be finishing this tube, but only because I don’t want to be wasteful.
Has anyone else tried this product? What did you think?
