BigW still stocks this toothpaste


BigW still stocks this toothpaste, though you've got to look hard (and downwards) to find it. When a product hits the bottom shelf, not a good sign for its future.

Purchased in July 2019.

Love it but can’t buy it!


Have used Maclean’s Sensitive toothpaste for at least 15 + years & now can’t find it in Coles & Woolworths. Tried others & do not like. I asked today at Coles & they don’t know as ordering is done from central body. Is this favoured toothpaste still made & selling elsewhere?

Purchased in February 2019 at Coles Supermarkets.

Highly recommend for sensitive teeth


Been using this for years after daughter put me onto it. From time to time I want to try a different sensitive toothpaste but i end up spitting that stuff out when my teeth start to hurt and resort to good old Macleans Sensitive. I hope this toothpaste is around for a long time.

Purchased in March 2019.



Put it back on the shelves


I have used many different sensitive toothpastes over the years and the most effective and the best value for money is without a doubt Macleans Sensitive. However, much to my disgust I can no longer find it anywhere. I have tried others but they do not even come close. Please bring it back

Best toothpaste for me


Having tried other brands for sensitive teeth, I always find myself going back to McLeans Sensitive, Some years ago I had mild gum disease and since using this my dentist has advised me that there has been no further decline at all in the health of my gums. In fact, for someone my age they are very healthy. Other toothpastes either make my tongue numb, or have a nasty flavour. McLeans Sensitive has a mild mint flavour that makes brushing easier.
Inexpensive, reliable, works
No longer available at Woolworths Supermarkets

Great product


Thanks for bringing out a sensitive toothpaste as macleans is the only brand I am not allergic to. I have tried all the new brands on the market with the same outcome - allergies. Then I found your new product and wow, I was so thrilled as it works well without any affects what so ever! Thank you soo much for bringing this product out for your consumers.
Is the only brand I am not allergic to

A great toothpaste for sensitive teeth.


This is a great toothpaste that really didnt irritate my teeth or gums after I used it. It is more expensive than a couple of other products out there, but I think it can be found on sale and its worth it. The toothpaste has a nice fresh minty taste and wasnt too overpowering. I am not sure if I used it continually if it would make my teeth less sensitive, because I havent been using it on a regular basis. I tend to switch my toothpastes around, so I use this one a couple of times a week.
This is a great refreshing product to use for those with sensitive teeth.
It can be a little expensive and I think most sensitive pastes are a bit more costly anyway.

Macleans has been round for many years now and I have to say I trust them 100%. This is just one of their products and for sensative teeth and it does fix the job well. I would choose this over all other sensative teeth toothpastes why because I know it works and it works fast. I like the taste of it and it comes in a fair sized tube. The price is cheaper than most of its rivals and infact a better product in my eyes. The packaging is good and the product is a1+ and the price is just right for me and for families. If my friends or family had sensative teeth yes I would recommend this to them.
Love it, this is my favourite when my teeth become sensative.
Nothing at all.

For those with more sensitive teeth it is always a better option to use a sensitive toothpaste such as this one from Macleans as you do notice the difference compared with using more everyday brands. This toothpaste is more expensive than other products but if you need to use it specifically, then it is a great option.
Always available at the supermarket, helps if you have more sensitive teeth and need a specific type of product to deal with that. Great tasting and gives a good clean.
More expensive than normal everyday toothpaste products, but worth it as it will help to reduce tooth sensitiveness.

I have found that Macleans is cheaper than most other brands, but just as effective - if not more so...! Also, is available at supermarkets. Really worth it!!!

Like other reviewers, I used to believe that colgate was the be all and end all. But having tried several macleans products, including this one, I have found that they offer similar results but at a cheaper price. The sensitive toothpaste works well and I have never had a problem with it not being available at the supermarket.
Cheaper than the sensitive products of other brands, such as colgate and sensodyne, but does the same job. It tastes great and is available at all the supermarkets I have used. Actually works - I had fewer sensitive areas around my teeth after using it.
Have had no problems with this toothpaste.

I love this toothpaste! I have been ana avid user of Colgate but decided to try Macleans to save money. There is a substantial difference in price. I wasn't disappointed. This product is of a very high quality and I barely noticed the difference. It does the job well and I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised. I agree, Colgate and Sensodyne are both well known brands. However, Maclean Sensitive toothpaste does the job just as well at a cheaper price.
Cheap and economical compared to the other more popular brands like Colgate and Sensodyne
Nothing really

Seems nice and gentle on teeth. The price is really good compared to other sensitive toothpastes so I actually switched to this one after a while of using Colgate. I guess that's the only real main difference - price, Colgate has the Brand, but is overpriced. Either are a great toothpaste.
Pleasant taste & price

It is available at my local Woolworths, having returned to the shelves a few years back. Perhaps have a word to your local Supermarket manager as it is definitely available.


Many thanks
