Ripped Off.

Just opened a new tube today only to it half empty. Seriously this isn’t good enough. Yeah it’s a good product and it’s a decent price but having a family of 4 this annoys me.

Love the results.

Have been using this product for years and at 80 y.o. I have all my own teeth. Macleans Extreme Clean used twice daily suits me just fine.

Got a cavity and my teeth are yellow now

published

This stuff is very strong but the freshness only lasts like one hour and then your teeth feel gross again, as soon as I started using this my teeth have gotten worse and they were perfectly fine before, they are more yellow and get plaque sooner and the mint is so strong right after rinsing it is PAINFUL. Would just stick with oral b or Colgate, not whatever this stuff is made of.

Taste of bicarb

published

Bring back the original formula. My mouth do not feel fresh after each clean, it just taste like bicarb. It is considered a fail for a toothpaste. It is definitely missing the refreshing elements which the original formula had.

Be wary if you accidentally inhale some

published

I got distracted while brushing and accidentally inhaled a small amount. Resulted in choking and shortness of breath. Upon being able to breath again my throat is bleeding and feels burnt. Dangerous! Should have a warning label and keep out of reach of children. I don't know what is in this product but it is a hazard.

I think it works, but it is weird stuff.

published

I bought the Macleans Extreme Clean 'Lasting Fresh' because I struggle with sinus-related breath issues sometimes, and I wanted to veer away from products containing Triclosan.

I really do think this makes my breath fresher for much longer. It ticks the box there.

But it leaves the weirdest feeling in my mouth, as if my mouth has some sort of coating all around it. I think it may be affecting the skin in my mouth. If I drink anything containing milk, it reacts and creates this thick, mucous-like, white substance.

I am really unsure whether to love this product or hate it.

Unlike most, I enjoy the new formula

published

Yes I did prefer the cleaning experience with the old formula but I much prefer the results of the new one. I'm not fussed. I miss the old flavour and texture but honestly you only spend a few minutes a day brushing your teeth. I prefer the formula of the new one which it more important. Visibally whiter teeth!

Useless Crap

published

Tried this toothpaste (made in South Africa mind you) from Coles Supermarket in South Australia and the packaging splits down the join seam on the toothpaste body bloody useless crap.

Bad packaging

published

I've used Macleans toothpastes for many many years and I don't have a problem with this toothpaste other than trying to squeeze it out of the tube! The tube in Extreme Clean appears to me to be a thicker type of plastic, almost like a thin aluminium. However, I find it very difficult to squeeze the tube with enough paste to put on my brush.
I communicated with GSK and they very kindly sent me replacements, but not Extreme Clean.
Several months later I bought Extreme Clean again - same problem - too hard to squeeze out of the tube.
Must remember not to buy that flavour/type again. And if Macleans start using the same tube packaging as Extreme Clean, I will be changing brands.

Felt really good initially... but...

published

Bring back the good toothpaste!

published

The new extreme clean fresh is a fail. We've gone back to cheap stuff in whatever brand. If it's going to taste bad it might as well be cheap.

Loved the old bubbly formula!

published

Please bring back the old formula - it was the absolute best!! This new one is so terrible!!! No foam, peeling skin on inside of cheeks, gross taste.

Made my mouth peel

published

I had used Macleans extreme clean whitening for over 8 years. Thought the new packaging looked a bit old school when I bought it. Didn't realise that they'd also failed by altering a tried and tested formula. For a few days in a row, the skin in my mouth started peeling and it clicked that the toothpaste was the only common item I had tasted. Don't know what they put in this stuff but I won't be using it again.

Won't be buying this anymore

published

Worst taste and feeling, the original felt like it cleaned my teeth and freshened my breath. The new one feels chalky and after brushing I feel like I need to brush a second time. It doesn't foam up like it used to and if I had to compare it to another toothpaste I would say it is similar to the brand Aim, cheap and nasty.

New flavour is the worst!

published

I'm so picky with toothpastes and have been happily using Macleans extreme clean for years now. The new formula tastes and feels gross. Really dropped the ball here. Makes me wonder what kind of test group was used, if any. I get the feeling Macleans has lost quite a few of it's long time customers. Hopefully they wake up and bring back the original.
