Where do you buy it (name of store/URL of website/name of catalog company, please)?
How much do you pay for it?
What size tube do you usually get?
4.6 oz (130 g)
How often do you buy a new tube?
Every 3 to 4 months
Which country do you live in?
Do you reapply when brushing?
Not usually, unless my mouth feels particularly gross or I'm sick/have been sick.
Why do you pick that brand?
No particular reason. The Crest thing has carried over mostly from when I used whatever my parents bought, I think. I switch toothpastes every year or so, just to have something new in my mouth. :p I like minty things because they feel clean.
Is there anything else you'd like to say about your toothpaste?
I've yet to actually use this one, since it's a new tube and before I had plain peppermint. I'm kind of scared of the "extreme herbal mint" after reading your testing results in your journal. Also really scared of the pyrophosphates in the inactive ingredients. Anything with "pyro" cannot possibly be good.
