Crest Pro-Health For Me Fluoride Anticavity Toothpaste

RATING (out of 5 stars): 4 stars
 
COST: $4.79 for 7.8 ounces

THE SKINNY: You are so going to laugh at this one.

I don’t like something about the Crest Pro-Health toothpaste. It’s either the taste or that slightly gritty texture.

My dental hygienist loves Crest Pro-Health toothpaste. She swears by it. (The Crest website says the line is the “only leading toothpaste to protect all these areas dentists check most: cavities, gingivitis, plaque, sensitivity, tartar, whitening and fresh breath and it has a clinically proven active ingredient.")

So during my last visit, said hygienist convinced me to try the For Me line. It’s for kids, she explained with a laugh, but it tastes different than the adult version.

It does. It tastes better, more mellow that Crest’s standard mint flavor. And I think I really like it.

This fluoride toothpaste is made just for kids 8 to 12, according to the website, which also touts its “great, kid-friendly flavor.”

Is it a bad thing that I happen to think it tastes better than the adult version?

KEEP OR TOSS: Keep. It’s yummy and good for you, two things that are sometimes hard to find together.
