The good news is that PeroxiCare toothpaste comes with slightly more peroxide than it did before. The bad news is that this supposed improvement comes with a .3 ounce reduction in the total amount of toothpaste in the tube.

Tipster and avid teeth-brusher Tristan writes:

I bought some new toothpaste a couple weeks ago before I was completely out. I was excited because the box said 33% more on it. When I opened the new box today I noticed it was smaller than the old box. They removed .3 ounces but added the words 33% more peroxide to the box. Won’t be buying this brand of toothpaste anymore.

Ah, but good luck finding a brand that has never been shrink rayed.

Here’s an extreeeeeme close-up of those sizes, for the doubters out there:
