Smile a Little Brighter and Whiter

The #LoveMe challenge for Monday was to share something that you like about yourself. My answer was my smile. My smile may not be perfect or straight, but I have learned to love it. I’m excited that I get to share more about my smile and making it a little whiter with Colgate® Optic White® Express White toothpaste in just three days.


My Not So Straight Smile

I have learned to love my imperfect smile. My smile is a reminder of my childhood to me. A reminder of growing up with a single mom and all the work that she did to raise me on her own. A reminder that my teeth were straight enough that I didn’t really need braces. A reminder that I can smile a little brighter because those teeth show off a little bit of my story in every smile.


Smile a Little Whiter

As I have started working at home more I have found I’m drinking more coffee and it is taking a toll on my smile. I’ve been noticing that my teeth are getting a little more yellow. I was excited to try out Colgate® Optic White® Express toothpaste to see if it could help my smile become a little brighter and whiter.

What I liked was that you get whiter teeth in just 3 days, just by brushing. I was interested to find out that Optic White® Express White has 2 times more of the professionally recommended whitening ingredient (vs. Optic White Sparkling Mint TP).*


We went to our local Walmart to find the Colgate® Optic White® Express White display and pick up some to try. If you are curious about Colgate® Optic White® Express White toothpaste there will also be a demo in 550 stores on 2/28/15. See if it is coming to your local Walmart. Make sure and ask for your $1 off coupon!

If you want to just try out it or if you want both you and your spouse to share it you can get it in 3 sizes: 3oz & 4.5oz are now available, and the 1.45oz travel size will be available March 14th if you want to take it on a trip.

Do you like your smile? Do you wish you had whiter teeth?
