Colgate Optic White Toothbrush + Built-in Whitening Pen Review

White teeth are attractive, and with spring here there’s no better time to try to get whiter teeth for your new spring look. An economical and easy way to get whiter teeth is with Colgate’s new Optic White Toothbrush + Whitening Pen. Spring is the time for lighter, brighter colors for clothes, makeup and hair. So, it’s only right that teeth should get in on some of the lightening action.
I was given the opportunity by Influenster to try Colgate’s new whiting product that combines a toothbrush and whitening pen. It looks quick and easy: Brush, Whiten and Go. 


The toothbrush included in the package is made to help remove surface stains and has a firm feel to it. It took me a while to get used to the brush. It has a bigger tip than the other Colgate brush that I normally use. I found it hard to reach the back teeth for a thorough cleaning. The handle feels good and has a good grip.
You can use your regular, favorite toothpaste, but for optimum results use the whitening pen with Colgate’s Optic White toothpaste.


The pen is used by turning the dial at the bottom to get the whitening gel to the surface. Paint the gel on your teeth. The gel adheres to your teeth and dries quickly. There is no need to rinse. Colgate says results can be seen in as little as two days.
One plus is that you can control where the gel goes, as compared to whitening strips or a tray of goo that you put over your teeth. I like the fact that the gel doesn’t end up all over my gums, and I can put the whitening product only on the areas that need it.
The pen fits in the handle of the brush for easy storage. There are three simple steps: brush, whiten and go.

My opinion

 I did get whiter teeth, finding moderate results. They weren’t bright, luminescent white like you would get from a costly in-office procedure from a dentist, but Colgate’s whitening pen does make teeth whiter. I think it’s great for me because I love coffee and tea, which are awful culprits of yellowing and staining teeth. Colgate’s whitening pen is convenient and easy to use because it only takes a minute to use, and there is no waiting around after using.
There are lots of teeth whitening kits available, both over-the-counter and ones available from dentists, and some are quite expensive. Colgate Optic White Toothbrush + Built-in Whitening Pen is inexpensive, with prices ranging from $13 to $18. It is available at most drugstores and online, including Amazon.
