What I like about it: Dentaburst are conveniently and individually packed so you can easily stash them in your purse or pocket. It's perfect for a night out especially when you're out going clubbing and having a ginormous purse is not an option. You can pretty much stash one packet somewhere because they're so thin and discreet. It's great for places where they check your purse, and you're not allowed to have gum with you (i.e. certain clubs). It's also great for traveling whether you'd be on a plane or a car especially on long road trips. I don't know if it's just me... but sometimes when I (did) chew gum during a long car ride, I get pretty nauseous. Dentaburst has become a great alternative for me.
Unlike gums and mints, this doesn't mask the whatever funky smell you're trying to get rid off (especially if you had some onions in your burger for lunch). It really freshens your breath. I'm sure you guys know that chewing gum and mints actually makes your breath worse. Sure it's minty fresh once you pop one in your mouth, but after awhile, your breath will still stink. Why? Because gums and mints has sugar in it. Being that I currently have braces, I'm suppose to avoid gums at all cost because it will breakdown the glue on my braces, and not to mention get it stuck somewhere and cause all sorts of grief. I don't like mints as well because like I mentioned, it leaves a yucky taste on my mouth after awhile probably because of the sugar. So I usually just brush my teeth after lunch. But DentaBurst really does come in handy when your in places that brushing your teeth might be a bit odd (especially in public bathrooms, umm gross?). It only gives me a fresh and minty feeling on my mouth minus the chewing and dissolving of mints in my mouth.
Don't get me wrong, but I wouldn't completely ditch the idea of brushing your teeth (because that will be dumb), but it's also perfect when you ended up sleeping over someone else's house (with whatever reason you ended up being there), and your toothbrush is not readily available. Open one of these and you're breath isn't kicking nasty.
What I dont like about it: Being said that I do have braces, it might not be a smart move to use it on your teeth. I tried it out, and the fibers of the scrubbing part of Dentaburst started getting caught on my braces. So I had to lose the idea of doing that. However, it's still great for the roof of your mouth and to clean your tongue.
Another minor rant about it is how it loosely fits on my fingers. As the boyfriend suggested, maybe they should have at least 3 (small, medium, large) different sizes available to cater to different finger sizes.
I also don't like the possible stares you might get if you do use this in public. I suggest doing it in the restroom or at least be discreet about it. People might start thinking your brushing your teeth with your finger and toothpaste (technically you are though).
Would I buy this again: Most definitely especially when I get my braces off. They're definitely the better alternative in freshening your breath and super handy dandy. They also don't take so much space and no jiggling noise of the sound of mints hitting the pan in your purse. I might not have bought this on my own, but after trying them out, I've been using them since. You'll definitely find this on my purse.
