Glister Toothpaste = Puke City!
Its hard to say which Amway product I despise the most. I mean there are so many shitty overpriced low quality items to choose from!
I really hate the Amway toothpaste - Glister!
I use normal toothpaste the kind you see advertised on TV all your life - Crest or Colgate. Whatever is on sale when I get to the drug store! I’m not overly picky. They all do the more or less the same thing.
When we first got involved with Amway the fucking upline ran through our house telling Ambot to get rid of the illegal products and replace them with something similar that Amway sells. This really pissed me off. But then there was nothing about our upline that didn’t piss me off. In this case I hate being wasteful. If we have perfectly good products in the house I want to use them up and once the container is empty then throw it out. The Amway philosophy is to throw out perfectly good useable products and then spend lots of money replacing them with shitty overpriced Amway products.
One of those shitty products was Glister toothpaste. I can go to the drugstore and there will be 15 feet of shelf space devoted to all the different kinds of toothpaste and all the different things they can do for a person: help prevent cavities, fluoride, mouthwash, whitener, sensitivity, etc. With all this incredible toothpaste variety also comes a huge range of prices. Anywhere from a buck or so up to several dollars per tube.
Let’s do a little price comparison using the Amway web site and Walmart’s website. On Walmart I chose a 6 oz tube of Crest Pro Health that costs $3.47. The $2 to $3 range is an average price for most toothpastes. And weighing in for Amway is a 6.75 oz tube of Glister for $4.15. A little higher priced than the majority of toothpastes but there are a small handful of more expensive toothpastes on the market so I think we can say within a 2 buck difference Amway is not outrageously more expensive on their toothpaste like the way they are with the majority of their products.
Price is sort of in the range. What about variety? Oh I forgot. Amway has none when it comes to toothpaste.
What about taste? There are all kinds of toothpaste flavors out there. Mint, root beer, strawberry....
But not with Amway. They have one toothpaste flavor - puke!
I’ve never had trouble using normal toothpaste to brush my teeth. Brush, rinse, spit. No problem.
There is something seriously wrong with the Amway Glister toothpaste. I brush and the foul taste of Glister makes me gag. I try to spit out as much of the crap there is in my mouth and keep brushing. I feel the sweats coming on and I’m having trouble breathing. I am going to puke if I keep brushing using this nasty shitty Amway toothpaste!
Being a glutton for punishment I keep trying the Glister toothpaste. Remember those fucking assholes in our upline threw out my perfectly good toothpaste that does not make me puke and I hate wasting anything.
I gave in after a few days. I prefer not to puke when I’m brushing my teeth. I went back to using a normal toothpaste and I haven’t had a repeat gagging performance since.
Amway’s slogan? Spend more money for our low quality toothpaste. You might not get your teeth clean but Glister will empty your stomach!
