Glister Toothpaste – How To Puke And Brush Your Teeth At The Same Time

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 more or less the same thing.


When we first got involved with Amway the fucking assholes in our 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 20 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. 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.


Price? Amway Glister toothpaste is sort of in the range of other toothpaste brands, a bit more expensive but not 3 or 4 times more expensive like other Amway products are, maybe that’s because most toothpastes at the store cost $2 or $3, so Glister might be twice as expensive as a tube of Crest.


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.


A good Amway slogan? Spend more money for our low quality toothpaste. You might not get your teeth clean but Glister will empty your stomach!

  1. I'd feel uncomfortable letting these clowns go through my house. Throw my favorite products out. Especially when I'm picky with toothpaste and mouthwash. Can't believe Amway doesn't put more flavors and options. I remember how itchy Sanatique shampoo made my scalp itch. Had to throw away the Amway shampoo after one use

    1. Anonymous - people in Amway are nosy bastards. Snooping through the house is the least of your worries.

  2. With most Amway products, you can reuse the container by filling it up with good stuff from the store. You're ready for the next product check by your Nazi POS Platinum.

    On the other hand, have you ever tried to squeeze a tube of Crest into an empty tube of Glister? That's gotta be a bitch.

    1. Well, to be absolutely fair, squeezing a tube of Colgate in a tube of Crest has got to be a bitch too he he he.

  3. I used to be 'brainwashed' during my amway tenure and believed how that glister shit was best for my teeth (and oh, my uplines always bragged how dentists recommended glister)

    Once I quit building amway, I love how I can use any paste I want to pick from the store, and nobody keeping a watch on me like a mother hen :-)

    1. Isn't it great not having a bunch of Amway assholes bitching at you because you want to buy better quality lower priced products than the shit they're peddling!

  4. I heard from a nurse who gotten free toothpaste and toothbrush at work. Was taunted for not throwing it out by diamond. I love switching brands and flavors with no loyalty.

    1. My loyalty is for the brand that's on sale when I'm shopping.

    2. Usually toothpaste here cost 1.99 or less on sale. I also buy whatever is on sale. They are practically the same.

  5. I never tried the toothpaste, but I've had the chance to cry some of their horrible energy bars.

    My boyfriend was nearly suckered in to joining Amway. He came home raving about a guy he met named Dave at Barnes & Noble. "Dave", asked that he come and meet him for an informal "interview" the next day, and hey! Bring your girlfriend along too! The minute he started talking to us, I knew it was a crap scam. My boyfriend, however, insisted that it wasn't, and that he'd be going to the business gathering they were having that very same night.

    We fought over it for an hour before I said I would come along too. My WORST fear was that they would con him into joining right then and there, when I wasn't around to be the voice of reason.

    The entire thing was an embarrassing mess. Fools drinking the Kool Aid from the even bigger fool and his wife pouring it. During the break, I grabbed his had and told him we were OUT of there. Everything you've said on this blog about their pitching tactics is 100% TRUE.

    And the sad thing? My boyfriend had told Dave and I that we were looking to build a better future for our toddler at home. And the loser STILL pitched this bullshit business to us that would have left us destitute and in the hole.

    1. Please excuse the typo's in the post above. It was hastily typed.

      Keep up the good work on this blog. More people need to wake up a realize that they have been inducted into a cult of abusers.

      I get hassled by friends to join various MLM schemes all of the time. And what happens when you refuse? They say that you're lazy, missing out on a life changing opportunity, and that you don't care about your future. Mind you, these same friends beg for new recruits on their facebook pages day after day, and live at home with their mommy and daddy.

      We're in our mid-20's. The amount of people my age who are suckered into this bit is truly sad.

    2. And that is the thing... to even be MODERATELY successful in Amway you have to have zero conscience and not care about whose lives you wreck, as long as you milk your victims for whatever money you can get out of them. I've heard stories of uplines "advising" their victims to sell wedding rings, family heirlooms, empty out their financial nest eggs all with the promise "success is just around the corner, but you have to 'invest' in your business".

      But like any pyramid scam, the only way it can work is you have to have a LOT of people losing money hand over fist in order for the tiny few at the top to be making money. Their game is to string the suckers along for as long as possible, until they have lost almost everything. And then those "loving, caring friends" disappear.

      I'm glad your bullshit alarm was screaming and that you got him out before he could get brainwashed.

    3. Hi Anonymous. Glad to hear you guys didn't get suckered in. And you're right everything Amway is an embarrassing mess. Ambots aren't allowed to pester people in B&N but they do jt anyway. Time to rerun that post.

Comments are moderated but we publish just about everything. Even brainwashed ambots who show up here to accuse us of not trying hard enough and that we are lazy, quitters, negative, unchristian dreamstealers. Like we haven’t heard that Amspeak abuse from the assholes in our upline!

If your comment didn’t get published it could be one of these reasons:
1. Is it the weekend? We don’t moderate comments on weekends. Maybe not every day during the week either. Patience.
2. Racist/bigoted comments? Take that shit somewhere else.
3. Naming names? Public figures like politicians and actors and people known in Amway are probably OK – the owners, Diamonds with CDs or who speak at functions, people in Amway’s publicity department who write press releases and blogs. Its humiliating for people to admit their association with Amway so respect their privacy if they’re not out there telling everyone about the love of their life.
4. Gossip that serves no purpose. There are other places to dish about what Diamonds are having affairs or guessing why they’re getting divorced. If you absolutely must share that here – don’t name names. I get too many nosy ambots searching for this. Lets not help them find this shit.
5. Posting something creepy anonymously and we can’t track your location because you’re on a mobile device or using hide my ass or some other proxy. I attracted an obsessed fan and one of my blog administrators attracted a cyberstalker. Lets keep it safe for everyone. Anonymous is OK. Creepy anonymous and hiding – go fuck yourselves!
6. Posting something that serves no purpose other than to cause fighting.
7. Posting bullshit Amway propaganda. We might publish that comment to make fun of you. Otherwise take your agenda somewhere else. Not interested.
8. Notice how this blog is written in English? That's our language so keep your comments in English too. If you leave a comment written in another language then we either have to use Google translate to put it into English so everyone can understand what you wrote or we can hit the Delete button. Guess which one is easier for us to do?
9. We suspect you're a troublemaking Amway asshole.
10. Your comment got caught in the spam filter. Gets checked occasionally. We’ll get to you eventually and approve it as long as it really isn’t spam.
