Colgate Wisp: Refresh Your Teeth Anywhere

by Briana on April 8, 2009 · 31 comments

wisp-with-lippyHere’s the scene. My husband had taken me to lunch. It was Friday so of course, we had the fish special. Once I got back to work, I had lingering taste in my mouth. It was one that even a strong mint or gum could not handle. Not something I wanted to experience all day long but luckily, I had received a few samples of the new Colgate Wisp. So I whipped it out of my purse.

Colgate Wisp is a new single-use toothbrush which has a breath freshening bead which gives a clean, fresh mouth with no rinsing or water required. As you can see from the picture to the left, it is smaller than lip gloss so you can keep it with you anytime you may need it.

three-wisp-images-combinedIt was a bit awkward to use at first as I wasn’t quite sure how to use it. Once you start brushing with it, the beads start to do their work. It will gently remove the food and plaque between your teeth and along the gum line to give you a freshly brushed feel. It is perfectly safe to swallow and pretty amazing how it works with no water. Includes a soft pick at other end of the brush for those hard to get places.

Since it is not convenient to take your toothbrush and toothpaste everywhere with you or wherever water is not easily accesible, Colgate Wisp is a great alternative. They are handy and compact and individually foil sealed. Store in your purse, desk, or car for that on the go clean anytime! They don’t replace regular brushing obviously but use them whenever you are on the go.

Available in Peppermint, Spearmint, and Cinnamint so there is a flavor for everyone. These retail for $2.39/4 pk and $7.99 for a 16 pk.

Have you tried these? When do you think you would use these?

ooh these look awesome and would be so handy when out. I would love to try these cause I am always looking for ways to freshen my breath after eating, especially going somewhere like a dr. These are the coolest thing yet!

These are so interesting and cool! I would love to try them! They would be great to just keep in your desk or bag for any “emergencies” there like a better version of those Oral – B Brushups.

I would really love for you to pick me. These sound so neat. I have a lot of problems with my teeth, so I go to the dentist quite often. I could carry these with me. Even without the free ones, thanks for the coupon. I’m on a fixed income so this will be nice.

This sounds like a great thing for when I’m between work meetings or to keep in my travel bag for quick trips. Love the no water feature for airplanes and car trips!

These look awesome and much better than the ones they used to have where you wore it on your finger. Do you remember those? I’m excited to try the spearmint one!

These sound so neat! I would love to try these but havent managed to do yet. I am always on the go and so many times I wish I could brush my teeth after I ate and couldn’t. These would get lots of use. Thanks!

These would be great after eating a “stinky” meal and they are better foryour teeth than a sugary mint.

I really would love these things. I’m always trying to have clean teeth. After I eat out, I’m like wondering around my mouth with my tongue trying to see if they are clean. I constently carry flossers in car and pocket. It would be great to have a portable brush with cleaning beads!!

I just discovered these things in CVS the other day and decided they should win “invention of the century.” I’m glad to read your review because I was wondered what “real people” thought of them! Thanks for your honesty. :)

Thanks!

I’ve been so excited about these since I saw them in the store. I can’t wait for them to go on sale and the coupons to start coming. I would use these anyway. I would love to keep them in my purse for a quick freshen up.

These look great, I have seen them for sale already and was waiting for a coupon. Great idea, I love that they are tiny and no mess. They are great for taking when you go around friends houses for dinner or out for dinner and feel the need to brush you teeth.

Sounds great – I hate spending the afternoon regrettin my lunch choice!

I have not tried these yet. These would be great for my daughter as she has braces and needs to refresh/brush her mouth quite a few times a day. This would probably encourage her more to brush too. I would like to try these out too. :)

What an interesting product! I think these would be great when you’re “on the go” and can’t use a regular toothbrush! I can’t wait to try them!

I have that same problem when eating any dish prepared with garlic. Tic tacs just don’t do the trick. The 16-pack is a great deal. I’m putting this one on my shopping list for this week.
