Quality of the latest manufacturing is bad
I have developed preference for U.K. produced products after spending time in U.K. in the 70's and finding Pearl Drops. I have started using Sensedyne in the 80's. It was a great product. I used it faithfully until earlier in the year and ended up with mouthful of ulcers.
Considering that I paid more for the uk made rather then the Thailand made one (Colgate made there also gave people ulcers) I was extremely upset. Of course it was partially my fouls-I should have checked on where the ingredients came from, but still you are the people who ma...
A disturbing toothpaste
Try it out for more than 3 minutes and a wired bitter taste starts appearing in the back of the mouth, after rinsing with regular water the bitter taste gets worse for about 10 minutes. Now I repeated this several times and it keeps happening. In the product's defense I did wash for a few days and noticed a complete recovery of sensibility to cold and hot liquids and the slight discomfort is gone but the bitter taste is just so bad.
- now it might be one of those chemicals that taste bitter to some and sweet to others but on the other hand i...t might be a allergic thing or a symptom of a larger developing problem...so more testing would be needed. -now considering all doctors recommend it all the time even to healthy patients "as the best out there" I'm thinking this would be the result of a marketing related thing so they could definitely afford a study...if they cared. -issue is I can't find much info online on the bitterns of it so since I can't be the only one out there with this reaction I encourage people to wash for 10-15 minutes and see if they get it - point is this can't be healthy can it? So I'll be dropping this great paste due to the unknowns I mean I like the result on the teeth but don't like the reports about cough and stomach issues online.

How could you believe in a product that talks about australians liking the toothpaste when your tv commercial has new zealanders spruking the product!! Seriously?? Couldnt you afford to produce a local ad...you had to recycle a nz ad!!!you do realise we are different countries...
Can't use anthing else
I usually would use a sensitive toothpaste but then I thought it would be fine to use any tooth paste, after using macleans normal toothpaste for a while I started to get a really bad sharp pain on one of my teeth, I went to the dentist and had xrays and all that jazz, in the end nothing major was wrong they suggested that I should try using sensodyne to see if it goes away if not them come back in. I used the sensodyne and literally after 1 brush the shooting pain rapidly went down, after about a week it was no longer a shooting pain and now a...fter 2 months I have no pain at all what so ever! My pain was so bad before that I couldn't eat anything too warm because it would create the worst pain, but the food was really a normal heated temperature that everyone was eating, now I haven't had that problem once and I'm literally scared not to use sensodyne, I would never ever change!
Burning Mouth after using Sensodyne Whitening toothpaste for sensitive teeth
Will be throwing my Sensodyne in the bin where it belongs. Could not work out for months what the problem was with my mouth starting to burn and feel like there was no moisture in it. Have just searched 'burning mouth' and came across a stack of forums and posts about the exact symptoms I have. Guess what! We all use Sensodyne. Well not anymore. Will stick to a non SLS herbal toothpaste from now on.
Your advert on Australian TV is a Disgrace. The woman that talks about ice cream and says " in your gob " is terrible. What kind of an example
Is that to children or young people that may see this advert. You need to change it quick smart. So many people feel the same way I do. I will not buy your product again, until you change the way you advertise it. So, so disgraceful.
Now made in Asia
I have use this toothpaste with great success. I have a problem putting something made in Asia in my mouth. So I will be switching to a product made in north America. Too many unsafe practices happening in Asia ie) poisoned milk, lead in paint and jewelry for children in products from China.
Started using this toothpaste after my front teeth started hurting badly when drinking water. A week or so after using it I woke up with my whole mouth aching. I have been in pain all day and wondered what I had done, Googled about Sensydine and found hundreds of negative reviews about it causing pain and aching and I'm disgusted that something like this can be sold.
Cannot fault my sensodyne
I purchased 1 doz. tubes of sensodyne in Bali at the local supermarket, $1.80
I haven't had one mouth ulcer since using it, to me it is perfect even if it is made in Thailand. I am using the one for gums which is the most popular, cannot seem to buy that one here in Perth. Good excuse for another trip to Bali"""
Works well for me - both UK and Thailand made are available
I'm new to using this toothpaste after damaging my teeth through years of whitening toothpaste use left them sensitive to temperature. My dentist told me it could take up to 2 weeks to gain relief but it seemed to work after 1 week. He also suggested the other brands may be just as good but I've just stuck with this one. It is rather overpriced so I just buy a couple when they are on special, as it does go on special every month or so. After reading these reviews I checked the boxes to see where they are made and found that some varieties are m...ade in the UK and others are made in Thailand. I don't think I've tried the Thailand ones, so I might avoid those, but the UK ones are still available in Coles and work well for me. You need to use 2 times a day, as I was told it puts a "film" over the teeth which protect them from the cold etc which will be washed off if you use another regular toothpaste. It does stop the sensitivity for me It is overpriced
Thailand made - not as good
I have used Sensodyne Toothpaste for so long I can't remember just how long - but it is now made in Thailand which I didn't notice until recently so I shall not be purchasing it any more - I now realize that every time you buy a product you are familiar with you have to check where it is made. The texture now is watery and I do not like the flavour - too sweet - so shall get Cedal from now on.
too expensive being made in Thailand, taste too sweet and watery.
Cheaper import now made in thailand not the uk
Obviously cheaper product and a change in the original formula.Why are they advertising it as specifically for sensitive teeth, and still charging more than your average toothpaste. Look at the ingredients - First ingredient is water and second is Sorbitol, a sweetening agent! What a rip off! Originally made and imported from UK, now made in Thailand like many other favorite brand toiletries! Look at the labels now, why do you think they have all dropped in price!
Not the same product as it used to be.
Sensodyne - watery waste of time and money
I've used Sensodyne since the old days of the original it was the only thing that stopped the sensitivity. I swapped to the mint one in latter years and was very happy with that. Then it Changed. It's not toothpaste anymore it's watery slop!!! Sinks into the toothbrush and runs off when I put our toothbrushes out. Can't believe such a well known product can be destroyed like that. What a rip off. I want the real toothpaste back! Very disappointed. Obviously cost cutting measures not quality product.
Watered down slop. You should leave the accountants out of the manufacture!!!
Burns your mouth
We started using Sensodyne Sensitive Whitening and within days we both had a horrible white film on the inside of the lips. This would peel away and left the area very sore and sensitive - not quite what we were looking for. After stopping using the toothpaste it improved. We will never use Sensodyne again.
Burns the mouth tissues and it "peels" away in an awful white gooey film.
Sensodyne - metallic taste
About 2 years ago - maybe new formulation time - I developed a metallic taste in my mouth. Continuous until 3 months ago when, on a whim, I changed from sensodyne to another make. Taste went in 2 days and food tastes good again. Neither my GP nor dentist had any idea of cause. I had not thought of sensodyne because no previous problem in about 20 years of use.
Worked well until formula change
new formula is horrible
I agree with recent bloggers that the new formula isn't the same and my teeth have become sensitive after using it....the product is also made in thailand. I was really happy with the old toothpaste and have been using it for years, so why am i paying the same price for a worse quality product!!
