Full Review

A mild yet refreshing and natural toothpaste, Grants Mild Mint with Aloe Vera is a wholesome and family-friendly toothpaste.

With healing properties such as organic Aloe Vera and natural herbs, it is sure to be a gentle and healthier alternative to some of the big toothpaste brand products in Australia, such as Colgate’s Total 12 Toothpaste.

First Impressions

Grants Mild Mint natural toothpaste came in a compact tube that was functional and user friendly.

A 110g tube is a perfect size to fit in your bathroom cabinet without it taking up excess space.

The toothpaste flavour is definitely mild but is noticeable.

I was impressed after brushing with how it left my mouth and teeth feeling clean and refreshed.

Priced generally between $3.00 – $4.50, somewhere in the middle of this range represents good value for money.

Packaging and Design

Grants have created a simple but eye-catching packaging for the toothpaste.

They’ve used a lovely green feature colour to represent Mint and Aloe Vera.

The packaging, both the box and tube have all the information you need, and nothing you don’t.

I found the tube very easy to use and I never had any overflow when applying it to the Doctor Plotka’s Mouthwatchers Antimicrobial toothbrush I was using.

Directions for Use

There are only a few steps to follow and they are pretty simple.

First, use twice a day, morning and night. Dentists recommend brushing your teeth for 2 minutes.

They say don’t swallow the toothpaste, generally a good thing to remember.

Rinse your mouth and toothbrush after brushing. Pretty standard but beneficial advice.

Finally, make sure kids are supervised by an adult when brushing their teeth.

Testing Grants Natural Mild Mint Toothpaste

I’ve been testing this product by Grants for just over 2 weeks.

In that time, I’ve enjoyed using the Natural Mild Mint and think its good toothpaste overall.

Below are some notes that I took during my review period.

Price and Value

You’ll find that there is a reasonably wide price range with this product, mainly because it is available at some very large retail stores like Woolworths and Coles.

I’ve seen it as low as $3.00 at Woolworths and as high as $10.50 on eBay!

$3.00 is great value for money, however, somewhere between $3.00 – $4.00, I believe, still offers good value for money.

That makes it only $3.57 a tube.

Overall

Grants of Australia Natural Mild Mint with Aloe Vera Toothpaste was great to use.

After using this product, I found my mouth and teeth felt minty clean.
