I was skeptical about trying this toothpaste because I had tried other brands of "natural" toothpaste years ago and found them to have a gritty texture and a horrible aftertaste. I bought this toothpaste on a whim and was pleasantly surprised!

The consistency is thicker than most conventional toothpastes, so it's harder to get out of the tube and that takes some getting used to. The texture is fine, though - not gritty or grainy like I feared. The best thing about this toothpaste is the taste; it's really minty and fresh! In fact, my mouth felt minty for a longer time after brushing than I was accustomed to with my usual toothpaste brand. My teeth also *felt* cleaner. It was almost like they had that "just came from the dentist" feeling. I've only been using this toothpaste for about a week, so it's too soon to know for sure whether it will whiten my teeth. But my teeth already do seem like they might be a little whiter.

The major downside for the product is the price. With it costing about twice as much as the toothpaste I typically use, I don't know if it's worth it for me to continue purchasing.

i ended up trying Burt's Bees toothpaste through an in-home study. i was sent 2 full-size tubes of toothpaste marked #1 and #2, and was to use each of them for a week and give feedback. one i liked, and one was absolutely terrible. after the study i pulled off the plain white labels that had been applied over the tubes themselves to see which brands they were. the good toothpaste was Tom's of Maine, which came as no surprise to me. the horrible one was Burt's Bees, which surprised me for a couple of reasons. for one, i didn't realize that Burt's Bees *made *toothpaste. and secondly, i expect better from Burt's Bees as a brand.

i think the absolute worst thing about this toothpaste was its consistency. "thick" and "gooey" are both good descriptions. most toothpastes are...well, pasty. you put them on your toothbrush, and as you start running it voer your teeth, the paste disperses and froths up. not Burt's Bees. i was surprised at how hard it was to get the toothbrush moving normally. it's like the toothpaste was sticking the toothbrush to my teeth! and then once i got it started working, it didn't froth up like i'm used to, which doesn't necessarily mean that it wasn't working, but it certainly didn't make me feel any better about the product. the taste was OK, the aftertaste was pretty bad. my mouth and breath just didn't feel fresh after using this stuff!

the only good things i can think of to say are that Burt's Bees is a good brand overall, with quality ingredients in their products and no animal testing. but the same can be said of other brands, such as Tom's of Maine, which makes much better toothpaste.

Really Great Natural Toothpaste

By 

from Chicago, IL

Comments about Burt's Bees Natural Fluoride Whitening Toothpaste Peppermint 4 oz:

I love the Burt's bees lip balms and have used them exclusively for years now. I figured since they work so great on my lips I should go ahead and try the toothpaste too. I was very curious to see how it would work on my teeth. Well, it was not cheap in my opinion. However, I did see that it was on sale so I bought 2 tubes of it to increase my savings. I tried it for the first time and **my teeth definitely felt a lot cleaner, looked whiter, and there was a fresh taste left in my mouth as well - with no weird or sugary aftertaste**. I love brushing my teeth with the toothpaste so much that I have already started into my second tube. I am excited to get more of it and just hope I can be lucky enough to find it on sale once more! Wish me luck...everyone!

my Toothpaste for life!

By 

from San Jose, CA

Comments about Burt's Bees Natural Fluoride Whitening Toothpaste Peppermint 4 oz:

I learned that some people could be allergic to SLS and that it could cause a variety of mouth problems. I had a spot on the roof of my mouth that was itchy and red and my dentist said it was from allergies. I tried different toothpastes that were SLS free, but they didn't freshen my breath and I didn't feel they got my teeth that clean. Although, Burt's Bees toothpaste is hard to find in stores I didn't mind ordering it online as it is now my new toothpaste and will not use anything else ever. It got rid of that itchy red spot on the roof of my mouth and I don't have trouble with my mouth anymore. Thanks Burt''s Bees for making such wonderful products. Tastes good, works great. I find that my teeth have less tartar build up and my mouth stays fresh for quite sometime. No complaints from my dentist either! I will definitely be using this product for life! Burt's bees products never fail to satisfy my needs!

After using Burt's Bees toothpaste my dentist was amazed!

By 

from Lima, OH

Comments about Burt's Bees Natural Fluoride Whitening Toothpaste Peppermint 4 oz:

My dentist was a little concerned when I told him I was using this new toothpaste brand primarily because it is not ADA recommended.  He was happier when I told him it had fluoride, but he still tried to get me to agree to go back to my old brand.  Then he looked at my teeth.  This product boasts that it is great at removing plaque because of the cranberry extract.  I am convinced because the dentist was amazed at how little plaque I had.  And every time I brush my teeth they feel like I just left the dentist.  The fact that it is a green all natural product is the icing on the cake for me!

Burt's Bees toothpaste is overpriced

By 

from Oviedo, FL

Comments about Burt's Bees Natural Fluoride Whitening Toothpaste Peppermint 4 oz:

Burt's Bees has never ceased to fail me in their line of lip products or their hand salve. This product, on the other hand, seems to fail miserably by Burt's Bees standards. When I saw this product come onto shelves, I really wanted to try it. Organic toothpaste? Who'd ever heard of such a thing?! So I bought a (very pricey!) box of this toothpaste and took it home to test out. It said it was a whitener, and it also included fluoride. I tested this product for about a month, and I must say, I am thoroughly disappointed. For one, it definitely didn't "whiten my teeth". I had to use Crest Whitestrips instead. The taste of this product was, well, definitely not up to par. It tasted nothing like peppermint. Rather, it tasted of sour.. well, there's really no way to describe how awful it tasted, and the terrible aftertaste, too! Overall, I feel like this was a terrible waste of money. It's extremely overpriced for such an average product, and I don't think I'll be purchasing another tube soon.

Burt's Bees toothpaste - thick and gritty. Not appealling.

By 

from Clarendon Hills, IL

Comments about Burt's Bees Natural Fluoride Whitening Toothpaste Peppermint 4 oz:

In all honesty, this stuff is pretty gross.  I was pretty disappointed due to the fact that I love other Burt's Bees products - chapstick, lotions, etc.   It's pasty, and gritty and leaves an aftertaste in my mouth that is not pleasant and no other toothpaste has done before.  I was anxious to try and it and I received a free sample so I can't complain about the price, but I wouldn't pay for this toothpaste.  It would probably be not different than just putting baking soda on your toothbrush (which is actually good for your teeth just feels horrible because of the grit).  Maybe people who love things "natural" wouldn't mind this product, but I feel that if I want to enjoy brushing my teeth I will stick with good old Crest or Colgate.  They are much smoother and better tasting than this Burt's Bees toothpaste.  This product is also very expensive.  I'm not sure why people would pay more for a less appealing product, I must be missing something.

A good option for natural toothpaste

By 

from Kansas City, MO

Comments about Burt's Bees Natural Fluoride Whitening Toothpaste Peppermint 4 oz:

I've been using Burt's Bees Natural Fluoride Whitening Toothpaste for a few months now.  I had previousely used a different brand of natural toothpaste with less than satisfactory results that was more expensive than this Burt's Bees product.  The first thing I like about this product is that it is fairly priced, while more expensive than conventional toothpastes for a natural toothpaste it seems reasonably priced.  It has a nice peppermint flavor and leaves my teeth feeling clean.  What I think could be improved would be that the breath freshening peppermint flavor does not seem to last nor does my teeth feeling clean.  I rest easy feeling like my teeth are being naturally cleaned and it is a better choice for my mouth than other non-natural toothpastes.  Could it be done better?  Maybe, but for a good price and a natural choice I will continue to use this Burt's Bees Natural Toothpaste to take care of my teeth.

Definitely Not One of Burt's Bees Higher Points

By 

from Fort Gratiot, MI

Comments about Burt's Bees Natural Fluoride Whitening Toothpaste Peppermint 4 oz:

I often wonder why notable brand name companies try to improve upon or add to a very elite and successful product line.  I hate to say folks, Burt's Bees definitely falls below the line with their toothpaste.  Again, I am very thankful for the internet and the endless ways for obtaining samples of new items which consumers can try before they buy it.  Especially in today's economy.  I received a sample of **Burt's Bees Natural Floride Whitening Toothpaste in Peppermint **and couldn't find anything appealing about the product.  When I applied to my teeth, it was thick and gooey.  The taste was awful.  Can't think of any other way to explain it but felt like a gob of mush in my mouth and it felt unpleasant.  Believe it or not I really like some of Burt's Bees other products and would highly recommend them to others.  Their toothpaste is another story.  Even after hearing Dr. Jill Lasky, D.D.S testimony on the Burt's Bee's website about how good this product is for your teeth, I'm still not convinced.  I don't like the feel in my mouth nor the texture or taste.  The cost is high for a tube of toothpaste compared to more notable brands.  Now if **Burt's Bees would only stick to their skin care line, they have a good thing going on there!**

Go for other Bert's Bees products...just not toothepaste!

By 

from Chicago, IL

Comments about Burt's Bees Natural Fluoride Whitening Toothpaste Peppermint 4 oz:

Although I usually enjoy most of Burt's Bees products, I really disliked their natural flouride toothpaste in peppermint.  Not only did it have an unfortunate flavor (which was rather disheartening because I love peppermint), but it also felt as if my teeth weren't really clean.  My mouth would usually feel dirty again by noon!  Amongst the other brands of toothpaste, Burt's Bees did not compare - especially since it is significantly more expensive than other brands.  I prefer my mouth to feel minty and fresh, not like I got ripped off with some faux organic tooth paste.  I ended up happily throwing the toothpaste out after it fell on the floor and into my dog's mouth.  I think that my Chihuahua enjoyed the Burt's Bees toothpaste significantly more than I did!  In conclusion, I definitely do not think that it worth the money.  There are other less expensive brands available that leave my mouth feeling clean all day.
