Toothpaste and which ones to buy

That is whilst you’re here in Melbourne for the marathon and if you run out. You can buy them at Coles on Elizabeth st near Flinders st station or in Melbourne Central. Now Coles is open from 6 or 7am in the morning and until 11pm or 12 midnight.

Some of my toothpastes have been supplied by Coles but others I had to pay for. I generally go for the $3- $4 ones on special as they work out more viable for me.

I also buy some of mine at Chemist Warehouse where the prices are low everyday. Again I go for the big $3-$4 ones as they are viable for me and can last a bit longer. Usually I get the Colgate toothpaste as they clean my teeth well and I need that for my gums to stay healthy.

Whitening toothpaste is about $8-$20 depending on which  brand you buy. You don’t really need them unless you want to look pretty for the photo and you have stains on your teeth.

Which would you buy?

Coles Toothpaste

Coles homebrand toothpaste is always cheaper. But does it work? We put it to the test!

I needed a new toothpaste really badly and as a student am trying to save money.

I got this on special for $2 at Coles when it was Easter. It was also the time that they advertised that all the checkouts would be open. At Melbourne Central the line was not too bad and they have a lot more checkouts now. Some of them have card payment which can be a pain for those which do not have card. But it is much faster to pay that way.

Does the toothpaste work the same way as the other Colgate and generic brand ones? The answer is yes! Even better they have a really strong mint aftertaste and the teeth is a lot whiter and brighter.

And they protected my teeth for twelve hours against coffee stains and plague.

Verdict: Give the homebrand toothpaste a go if you have no money!
