Vortex Color Changing Toothpaste Review

With my oldest child having just turned three, the nightly routine varies. Sometimes we take a bath, sometimes we don’t. Sometimes we read one story, sometimes we read two. Our morning routine varies at times too – what he eats for breakfast, what clothes he wants to wear and whether or not he gets to lounge in his pajamas for a while. But the one constant in both routines is brushing our teeth. Matthew knows that brushing is non-negotiable! He hasn’t had any issues with brushing, but I like to change things up every once in a while to keep him on the right path – and Vortex Color Changing Toothpaste has added a nice change to our daily routine.

Retired dentist Dr. Howard Wright invented the Vortex Color Changing Toothpaste in his quest to make kids want to brush their teeth – by making the experience enjoyable. Dr. Wright hand-picked the ingredients of the toothpaste to make sure it would be mild and gentle. He effectively eliminated the foaming agent that sometimes frightens younger children when brushing. He made sure the toothpaste would be just as fun as it would be effective in preventing tooth decay. He was also able to come up with a unique tube that dispenses two different colors of the toothpaste, which allows the paste to mix and change colors while kids are brushing – making the tooth-brushing experience fun.

Before using the toothpaste with Matthew, I decided to give it a try. Like Matthew, I was intrigued by the pink and blue streams of paste that came out of the tube. It was something I have never seen before, and even at 34, I thought it was pretty neat! I thought the grape flavoring might be too candy-like or too sweet, but it was mild and pleasant. There was no foaming, and the two colors blended together as I brushed. I knew that since I liked it so much, Matthew would too – and I was right!

Vortex Color Changing Toothpaste can add a nice, fun change to your child’s daily routine. It’s definitely going to be in Matthew’s rotation! You can find more information about Vortex on their website, their blog, on Facebook and Twitter.
