I was concerned when the tube of this toothpaste arrived, as the box had been partially crushed in shipping; however, the tube inside was intact and did not leak. There is a foil seal at the mouth of the tube, and a plastic film just underneath it; it took me a few days to figure out that removing the foil seal had not quite removed all of the plastic film -- and that caused the product to squirt out in only a thin stream until I removed the rest of the film (which fixed that problem). This toothpaste has a very mild mint flavor, not strong at all -- and that is actually a good thing to my mind (when I've just vomited and want to get the sour taste out of my mouth, I don't want anything so strongly-flavored that it'll make me nauseous all over again!). The toothpaste also had a smooth texture -- a pleasant surprise after the gritty baking soda & peroxide toothpastes I've tried for whitening purposes in the past.
I'm normally pretty terrible about remembering to brush my teeth as frequently as I should, and it showed in the pink-tinged spit when I used this toothpaste for the first time -- a phenomenon which thankfully dissapeared by the next brushing. The "proof of the pudding," however, would be in whether or not my teeth looked whiter and less stained after using this product. Per the reports of my spouse (who graciously inspected my teeth after each brushing), this product does indeed whiten teeth effectively, even after just one brushing. I subsequently visited my dentist for a filling repair (not telling her about the new toothpaste), and she didn't say anything one way or the other -- so at least it doesn't do any harm to use this product instead of an ordinary non-whitening toothpaste.
I had not previously attempted to use very many tooth-whitening products, as the instructions for other products often seemed rather complex & time-consuming, and too above & beyond my normal dental hygeine routine to be followed consistently. This Rembrandt Intense Stain Whitening Toothpaste, however, is a tooth-whitening product which can be easily used during ordinary toothbrushing, and appears to be both safe and effective. With a prettier smile (and possibly lower future dentist's bills) to look forward to, I will be brushing my teeth more often now!
