I've used this a few times now since receiving and while I'm slowly getting used to the product, I do feel better about knowing I've reduced my plastic consumption! Like others have noted, these tablets will not foam up which is disappointing. I checked with my dentist and they said to always use a toothpaste with fluoride, so be sure to get the tablets with fluoride! Or ask your dentist for the best option for you!
It feels pretty much impossible to find a zero-waste toothpaste option that includes fluoride. Since my dentist told me I should be using toothpaste with fluoride in it, I have been on the hunt for a low waste option and these are the best ones by far!
I’ve been waiting anxiously for any of the toothpaste tab brands to come out with a fluoridated version for u.s. customers. To my knowledge, these are the first and I love them! I’ve tried other, non-fluoridated, tabs (lush and etee) and really didn’t care for them. The unpaste tabs have a much more minty taste that reminds me more of traditional toothpaste, which is a plus to me. This also might be a feature of the fluoride ones since they probably have a lot less baking soda. (I have not tried unpaste without fluoride). Still getting used to the texture of these - they are definitely more watery and less foamy than what I’m used to, but that is a small price to pay.
I decided to give these a try along with Bite to see what my options were like for ditching the tube. Compared to Bite, Unpaste has a much more intense, and long lasting mint flavor. They also taste a bit sweeter (although with that slight bitterness that comes along with stevia sweeteners). That said, the texture leaves something to be desired- I couldn't get over how chalky these were. One of the other reviews mentioned it was like "chewy [sic] on cotton gauzes", and that feels like an accurate description to me. I preferred the flavor and texture of the Bite tablets far more.
Great flavor, not salty and works very well (:
