Freshen Breath On-the-Go with Colgate Wisp

We were already big fans of Colgate Wisp, the "smaller than a lip gloss" mini-toothbrush, so when we heard they were available in 16-pack pouches, we just had to share. Designed to fit in your everyday life, Wisp pouches are easy to stash in your desk drawer, purse, glove compartment or anywhere your day may take you.

To refresh your memory (pun intended), Colgate Wisp is a teensy tiny toothbrush with the "paste" built right in, so you can brush your teeth anywhere without water. Unlike gum, Wisps really make your mouth feel clean and fresh with such flavors as peppermint, spearmint and new Icy Bubble.

My fiance is slightly addicted to Wisps - I've caught him using them on the couch while watching TV, in the car while driving, even in bed! LOL. Like I said, he's hooked. This is the first freebie I've received that he stole from me. He keeps a pouch at work, too.

I think Wisps will come in handy during the summer (camping trips! food festivals!). And if you are concerned about all the plastic waste involved with the Wisp (which you should be) - good news! You can actually recycle your Wisps! Hooray! All the details are at

This things are horrible! I tried them not too long ago and they definitely don't make you feel like you have fresh breath. It's easier and less expensive to carry around a mini toothbrush and paste.

These not only are noneffective, but incredibly wasteful!! please don't promote something so wasteful even if they are giving you free-bees! Get a mini-tooth brush and paste as @juliette suggested

I agree Jackie. It's great when she promotes items that are actually useful... but lately I feel like she posts anything that anyone will pay her for. I may just have to unfollow. I don't like that!

I'm sorry you feel that way but I just want to make something very clear: I am NEVER paid to write anything - unless my post explicitly says "Sponsored Post" - and the percentage of sponsored posts is very small, maybe one every six months. Even if a post is sponsored (for a small amount, mind you), no one tells me what to write. It's always my opinion, 100%. Thanks.

In case you missed her disclaimer it said she wasn't paid for her opinion. If you don't like them fine but this was what she thought about them. Geez.

WOW I am totally SHOCKED then. I can't believe ANYONE would like those things! I haven't found one person that does. I worked an event where we were giving them out to THOUSANDS of people and no one that I talked to liked them.

Well good for you. I guess that gives you the right to criticize and ridicule.

LOL you are funny. I've actually stuck up for her plenty of times when people have said mean things. I'm a very loyal reader because I love her blog. She shares awesome things with us. I don't think I said anything "mean". That is honestly the way I felt. And actually I did miss this disclaimer. But the comment section is there for both good and bad comments, opinions, feelings - whatever! Like I said, that is honestly the way I felt.

I would also ask everyone to consider avoiding these because of the level of waste. No criticism to BB for the post, though in the future I'd love if you were a little more eco-conscious. :-)
