Happy 2017 everyone!
This is my first post for 2017 but fingers crossed that I’ll be blogging more this year!
One of the latest trends in health and beauty right now are dry tooth products. Carbon Coco is a big one that’s making rounds on social media but did you know that Lush also carries these products?
Read on for my review!
Lush Cosmetics has debuted two different tooth cleaning products: Toothy Tabs and Tooth Powder. Both are new alternatives to the standard toothpaste you use every day. I never experiment with my toothpastes, always going for my regular drugstore brands. But what intrigued me about these products is the fact that they come in a variety of flavours and they might be a better alternative when you’re travelling.
So, I dropped by my local Lush store and picked up the Tooth Fairy Powder. It’s a pretty simple concept: you dip your wet toothbrush into the pot and then start brushing! At first, it was a bit weird – one of the things I love about brushing my teeth is the “clean” feeling you get from the minty flavour. The Tooth Fairy powder didn’t have a minty taste but rather a strawberry, fruity one. The taste isn’t overpowering, which is great cause I was worried that it would have been too sugary for my taste.
The powder itself has some specs of glitter so I was a bit worried by teeth would look like a disco ball after but I was surprised that there weren’t any on my teeth at all! Once the powder dissolved, it didn’t take long before it started to foam and really work its way into my teeth.
I’ve been using it for a couple of weeks now and while I don’t see a drastic change, it does the job in keeping my teeth clean and my gums healthy. One of my worries though, is the hygienic-factor in constantly dipping my wet toothbrush into the pot. With the powder, you have to make sure that for the most part it stays dry inside. I have yet to see any solid clumps form in the pot but it’s something to definitely watch out for.
Price-wise, at $9.95CAD, these tooth products are a bit more expensive than your drugstore regulars. But it is a great alternative if you don’t like the overpowering minty taste of those toothpaste. Lush also offers other flavours of the tooth powder like Ultrablast (mint, watercress and wasabi) and Atomic (coffee, cardamom, cinnamon and clove). I might try the Ultrablast next time since the one thing I really couldn’t get over was the lack of the “minty-fresh” taste feeling!
If you don’t want to try the powders, Lush also offers a variety of Toothy Tabs. These work the same way as the powder however, instead of dripping your brush into a pot, you just take a tab and crush it into your mouth to start the foaming. From there, brush as usual! The tabs have a larger selection of flavours:
- Sparkle – lemon, grapefruit and pepper
- Miles of Smiles – triple mint (2 types of peppermint and wild mint)
- Limelight – lime, lemon, baobab fruit
- Oral Pleasure – rose oil, vanilla, daisies, passionfruit
- Dirty – spearmint and neroli
- Bling – orange and frankincense
- Boom – sea salt, aniseed, pepper, cola
Maybe on my next Lush visit, I can try the Toothy Tabs!
