I'm back after a really long break. I've just had bunion removal surgery and have found some free spare time between getting waited on hand and foot to blog! Without further ado, this is a long overdue review of Lush's Toothy Tabs.
Lush created Toothy Tabs as a solution to traditional toothpaste tube waste. Toothy Tabs are solid self-preserving toothpastes, and are packaged in 100% recycled and recyclable bottles. They are also really travel friendly!
There are currently 9 unique flavours, 3 of which I have. Using a toothy tab is... interesting. You place one between your front teeth, crunch it into bits, brush your teeth with a dampen toothbrush (works with an electric one too).
As the name suggests, limelight has a lime and lemon flavour with baobab fruit powder, and creates a fizzing, sherbet-like experience.
Oral pleasure has an interesting floral taste - a mix of rose oil, electric daises, and passionfruit.
Miles of smiles is minty, and is my favourite out of the three. There's nothing better than fresh minty breath.
Toothy tabs take a while to get used to. I find that they don't foam up as much as regular toothpaste, and Miles of Smiles is not as minty. The fizzing of the sodium bi-carbonate (which is a common ingredient in all toothy tabs) in your mouth is also quite a strange feeling, and is another thing that you need time to get used to.
Although I think this is a brilliant idea and is a great alternative to good ole toothpaste, I don't think I'm ready to make a permanent switch to Toothy Tabs. I like the foam and strong minty breath that a regular toothpaste can provide too much to say goodbye.
