I've seen these before (I believe the £Pound Shops used to have a version of these one time before too, if I'm not mistaken?), but are they any good though? (as I've never tried these before). :-)

I find I tend to need to use twice the amount of Lidl toothpaste to get the same effect as Colegate etc. Others may find otherwise but for me Lidl toothpaste is a false economy.

I find it (and Aldi's) much the same as any other toothpaste. No better, no worse - just hugely cheaper because you aren't paying for all the advertising and marketing. It'll be made by one of those companies anyway, to much the same formula.

I tend to stock up on the Colegate white stuff when it's 49p in savers. It's sometimes three for £1 in poundland if I'm not mistaken. It's not that expensive and I have never seen this Lidl toothpaste retailing for 35/39p before. Although granted it's 125ml.

I think the Lidl paste has a different consistency to other toothpastes, almost chalky. It reminds me of the consistency of some basic Tesco toothpastes.

Lastly, I can't remember the last time I saw an advert for the Colgate basic red flouride cavity protection toothpaste. Maybe in the 90s.

Like a previous poster I used both Aldi and Lidl's toothpastes and are no different in my opinion to toothpastes costing lost more. The consistency's not runny as prevously described as anyone elses. My favourite's Aldi's whitening toothpaste which works for me. Heat to OP!

​all supermarkets do a cheap toothpaste. They just call it value/smart price/ basic toothpaste but it is the same thing and is priced about the same. Lidl/Aldi just give there value brands fancy names like dentalux to fool thier customers into thinking they are getting branded goods cheaper than the larger supermarkets. They have doing this with all there items for years. People save money in Lidl/Aldi because these stores do not stock many branded goods and customers are forced to buy the stores own brand, if they just bought value brands from the main supermarkets they would save as well. You also wouldn't have to wait in long queues and be rushed through the checkout having your goods thrown on the floor before you get a chance to pack them.

Tell you what: you stay out of Lidl/Aldi while the rest of us migrate over from the 'big four' and save a shed load on QUALITY stuff. Their premium stuff is as good or better than premium ranges in the big supermarkets and still cheaper than regular stuff at the latter. You do have to overcome your brand ignorance/snobbery first of course.

Tried this, don't like it. Very watery + need to use more for better effect. No match for even Colgate basic red flouride cavity protection toothpaste ones.

I'm with you on this, but its probably worth noting that at 35p/125ml this (on the face of it) slightly undercuts the equivalent Tesco Value toothpaste. And noting that Tesco are busy rationalising their Value range, so removing (for me) the main reason why I kept shopping there.

Another misguided comment from someone who doesn't understand the Aldi/Lidl business model. You can't compare their products with supermarket value lines - they're far better than that and at least equal to branded items. The Tesco cheapo toothpaste you link to shows that it comes from China - unlike the Aldi and Lidl ones.

It's not a question of being 'forced' to buy their brands - it's a matter of choice, because they're every bit as good as the brand, in most cases made by the manufacturer of the brand, and at least a third cheaper.

​Aldi and Lidl do some really good stuff. I'm not that stupid that I can't tell the difference between a cheap product and a decent quality product just because of packaging. Could you tell me the difference between 8 wraps from Aldi and 8 wraps from Tesco? They have the same ingredients but Aldi charge 69p and Tesco charge £1.05, the weight is also the same. There are plenty of similar examples but I don't want to bore everyone. Simple fact is that most Aldi products are not the same as the supermarket value ranges in fancy packaging. Some people will never be convinced though. Try buying a selection of smart price stuff then some Aldi stuff and do a blind taste test, I'm sure you'll realise that you could actually be wrong then.

Is the kids one on offer? X

Absolute tosh. Lidl tomato sauce is made to look like hienz but is nowhere near as good the lidl cereal is terrible. Then we can move on the fruit and veg wonky cucumbers which could almost fit in a pickle jar, bananas that never ripped just go brown within days. But since they own the farms they can obviously call lower class products class 1/ grade a or whatever they want. Then all the awards they have won, if you worked for one of these award bodies I would imagine you would be biased towards the companies who essentially pay you wages over companies who do there own marketing and research instead of paying to stick the awarding bodies label on the goods.

You realise that Lidl changed the brand name of some of its products about three times in a couple of years before they were called Batts? I suspect they bought the Batts brand as a marketing ploy. If so what a waste of money as they're the same bloody products.

All Aldi and Lidl 'brands' are just own label names they've created for their own use. They see it as necessary to appeal to those who bizarrely have to have a brand on the label. At some point they may feel able to brand everything with their own name but that may still be a way off.

From my point of view I don't care what name's on the label. It's the quality of the product that matters and with both companies it's almost invariably as good as the brand leader. And often made by the brand leader.

Lol
Sorry I started this debate.

What I can say is the Lidl pineapples taste as equally as good as those from the Big 4, no matter what brand label is showing.

​of course I know. I used to buy the Ketchup when it was under the Kania name. I'm not stupid, I am able to work these things out for myself.

Thanks Op. I usually get this so was able to stock up. Cracking product and have been using for years. This stuff has been tested and reviewed many times in Germany German Review of Whitening Complex 5. here is a generic review in English thelocal.de/201…105

I prefer lidl dentalux complex 7 to the Colgate total version, and at about 20% of the price to, the big brands are still making an absolute killing when they are on offer at £1 or so a tube and people run like lemmings thinking they have a great deal, if lidl are making money at 59p per 125ml tube, then the major brands are ripping people of all day every day.

Still someone has to pay for the marketing/ brainwashing costs, and no longer will it be me.

Also Lidl and Aldi brands are not comparable with the very cheap supermarket own labels, they are competing with supermarket high level own brands, and also the well known brands, I have compared quite a lot of stuff and generally the lidl aldi stuff is better than the branded goods and also cheaper.

Lidl and aldi are nothing like when they first came here when they were cheap and nasty, now they are qualty and value, and judging by their expansion many people agree.

A good statement and correct. Some of the top of the range items are excellent quality. Lidl Deluxe range for example.
Both Lidl and Aldi are expanding in my area and Aldi had a massive impact on Morrisons last year locally. Lo and behold, Lidl are building a store soon even closer to that same Morrisons. One good thing about Morrisons, it's easier to get served! One bad thing about Morrisons, they often overcharge!
I love seeing the price cuts in all the big supermarkets. They promote the new lower prices as if they are doing their customers a favour! They've been ripping off their punters for years and the price drops are all down to Lidl and Aldi. Make no mistake, the big supermarkets do NOT want to drop their prices! But, they have to, the little supermarkets call the shots. Times may change, but not too soon.

Here in Leicester on the abbey lane, there is a new aldi opoening literally on the opposite side of the road to Asda, a conservative estimate about 30metres apart. And yes I've noticed recently as you walk into asda they have offers, as they define it, on fruit and vegetables, hum that sounds familiar!

I've been using the complex 7 variety for the last 18 months and have not had any problems at the dentist, in fact I have not required a dental clean during this time either.

One comment at the beginning mentioned no SLS (sodium lauryl sulfate) this is one of the reasons many feel the toothpaste is not doing its job as SLS is a foaming agent (which they also use in shampoos), so less foaming in the mouth.

The trouble with SLS in toothpaste is the possible side effects of mouth ulcers. I've experienced these nasties for many years, but once I switched to this Lidl toothpaste no more mouth ulcers. Its difficult to find SLS free toothpaste so at 39p this is a bargain!

PS...for other mouth ulcer suffers, a chemist recommended a 'cure' to me 40 odd years ago, now it might be a bit scary, but I have recently seen it being discussed on the internet which is the use of an old fashioned caustic pencil like this
https://www.amazon.co.uk/Bray-Health-and-Leisure-Caustic/dp/B004OX9P6Y/ref=pd_sim_121_2?ie=UTF8&psc=1&refRID=M8XQ675T706ES5JKX7D2
A quick touch of the pencil on the ulcer cleared it up for me in a day. Anyone trying this is entirely at their own risk of cause.
