Smiley360 Product Review: ARM & HAMMER™ Truly Radiant™ Toothpaste and Toothbrush

I'm a member of, where I qualify to try brands for free in exchange for sharing my authentic feedback. This blog post contains affiliate links.

I recently I received one ARM &HAMMER™ Truly Radiant™ Toothpaste and Toothbrush from Smiley360 to try out and review.

I'm already a big fan of battery-powered toothbrushes and own a Crest Spinbrush that I use every night. (I'd use it in the morning but my hubby is asleep and don't want to waking him up using it...maybe it's not that loud but it sure sounds like it at 6 am and everything is dark and quiet!).  My dentist recommended that I use some type of mechanical toothbrush because she says that it gets teeth cleaner especially behind the front teeth. My teeth certainly feel cleaner after using my Spinbrush so I have to agree with her. I'm a lazy tooth brusher so I need all the help I can get.

The Truly Radiant Spin Brush head differs slightly from my usual Spinbrush head. The bristles are a little bit longer in places and the bristle height vary in different places.

According to their website the ARM &HAMMER™ Truly Radiant™ Spinbrush Deep Clean Battery Toothbrush features:

  • Elongated all-access bristles
  • Dual-Action brush head
  • Special bristles designed to whiten teeth
  • Fraction of the cost of competitive rechargeable brushes

  • The website also claims that using this toothbrush can removes 100% more plaque and removes 5X more hard-to-reach plaque.  I'm guessing you's need to visit your dental hygienist to get the real down low on that! If I could only get her to stop telling me to floss more I'd be happy.

    I use whatever whitening toothpaste is on sale usually.  I have no brand loyalty and like trying new toothpastes. The Truly Radiant™ toothpaste is great product in that it cleans my teeth so well that I feel like I just went to the dentist. Unfortunately,it is baking soda based so it tastes very salty and smells funny. It does have a little bit of a minty flavor added to it but it just isn't strong enough to overpower that salty taste. I did get use to how salty it was after a few uses so I will continue to use this product until the tube is empty.The paste itself is very runny and falls off my toothbrush and gets all over my counters and me.  The whitening results were very noticeable to me (I drink a lot of Diet Coke) and I love how white my teeth are and how clean they feel!

    According to the back of product's box, it only takes 5 days** to see the following results:

  • Whitens, strengthens and repairs tooth enamel
  • Unique formula combines pure ARM &HAMMER™ Baking Soda, Active Calcium, Fluoride and Peroxide
  • Clinically proven to beautify teeth
  • Restores gloss and luster
  • Removes stains better than the leading whitening toothpaste**

  • Overall I liked both products and will continue using them, especially the Spinbrush.  I may not buy the toothpaste after it runs out.  Depends on if it's on sale or if I have a coupon.  It really does taste awful!
