Luster Now Toothpaste

RATING (out of 5 stars): 3 stars

COST: $9.49 for three travel-size tubes

THE SKINNY: I will warn you before you open a tube of Luster Now Toothpaste toothpaste. It is the color of the tube -- very bright blue.

The color scared me a bit at first. But the toothpaste, which is designed to help whiten and remove stains, actually works well. I could not tell a difference after one brushing -- as the package claims -- but did notice some subtle changes after a week.

The flavor is minty and easy to deal with, making this a good option for a deeper brushing cycle every few months.

The one downside? It's is pretty pricey for toothpaste. With three tubes, I am using one all the way through and will use another in a few months. (I plan to get a year of whitening out of this package.)

KEEP OR TOSS: Keep.

CHECK IT OUT: I found this product at Walgreens, but other retailers such as Amazon carry it as well.
