Product Review: Quay Smile

Talking toothpaste isn’t the sexiest of topics when it comes to our beauty agenda, but ignoring good oral hygiene can be like Kirsty Alley on a diet; a complete disaster.

With a renaissance in all things natural when it comes to beauty, it is no surprise that an oral care range using the powerful properties of green tea has emerged from the dental fray.

We like it with our sushi, we like it in our ice cream and it was only a matter of time before someone managed to make a green tea toothpaste. The Quay range responds to a need in Australia for oral care products that offer a more natural and refined alternative to the standard synthetic mint varieties out there.

I’ll admit I was a little apprehensive about trying Quay’s ‘Smile’ toothpaste because I was born and raised on the faux-mint carousel. Then I read about all the wonderful things green tea does for us, like its natural antioxidant and antibacterial properties that prevent tooth enamel erosion and decay, or how it’s a rich source of fluoride, integral in maintaining strong sparklers.

The result is toothpaste that makes my teeth feel cleaner than usual. You do need to get used to a lower-intensity feeling of freshness as there is less mint content, but the green tea and mint blend really compliment each other. The texture, which my housemate loves, is slightly smoother and less grainy than regular toothpaste and the foam is firmer. The fact I’m using something natural that’s been harnessed for hundreds of years is a pretty big plus.

Quay toothpaste retails for $5.99 and mouthwash for $6.99. The ‘Smile’ range is available through and
