This has been my first time using a ayurvedic tongue scraper and I’m never going back. It’s been so much more effective than using my toothbrush. Personally, I’ve found it removes build up and keeps my breath fresher longer.
After the first time my partner saw me use it, he wanted to buy one too! Highly recommend if you’re considering investing in one!
Scrapes stuff from my tongue effectively. It also looks great. After a few months, I bought another one for my wife.
I have used a tongue scraper for years but they have always been the cheap plastic ones. This is a great product. I have been using it for the past month and feel a lot cleaner. I used the plastic one i still had, and found that my mouth didn't feel nearly as clean. I highly recommend this one over a plastic one that you have to replace every month or so. This one is easy to clean and sterilize. Its worth the extra few dollars, in 2 months you've already got your moneys worth.
Never used this before. I’m addicted now. No bad breath complaints so far!
This is my second time purchasing this toothpaste, I love it! I had tried Lush tooth tabs, Toms toothpaste, and tooth powder. The lush products and tooth powder made my teeth sensitive. My dental hygienist commented that charcoal tooth powder can change the pH in your mouth and harm your teeth. The Toms toothpaste I wasn’t a fan of the taste, and I couldn’t locate a Toms recycling program near me. The David’s toothpaste is AWESOME. No sensitivity, the consistency is like normal toothpaste, and the peppermint is very pleasant and not an “earthy tasting” peppermint. My only comment is that when you are done with the toothpaste, it’s a little tricky to cut the packaging apart to clean it before recycling. The edges are sharp and the key makes the tube so flat that you can’t easily cut the side to clean the inside out. I’m happy to do it to reduce my waste, but something to be mindful of. So happy to discover this toothpaste!
I love the rolling key to make sure you get as much toothpaste out of the tube as possible. I also love that the metal tube is recyclable, although the plastic cap is not (in my town) due to its small size. The flavor is not a minty as a traditional Crest or Colgate toothpaste, but still refreshing and probably preferable for those of you who are not fans of mint. I am not sure if it is dentist-recommended - I plan to bring it up with my dentist next time I go in and make sure I am making a healthy choice as well as en environmentally conscious one! The price is admittedly pretty high for a tube of toothpaste, although hopefully it will last a long time, especially with the rolling key. I may post an update to this review with information on how long one tube lasts (brushing 2x a day) and what my dentist says about this product. Be well!
I love this toothpaste! It has a fresh taste and great consistency, and the tube key is such a plus to use all the product. One of my favorite swaps to date.
I generally prefer a medium bristle but couldn't find one (anywhere I looked) -- this works just as well, though! Adult size. Happy to be replacing my plastic toothbrushes. Would recommend!
I really love the handle of the toothbrush. It feels very stable in my hand. The bristles are nice and soft, but they don't fall apart in my mouth. It also gets my teeth really clean.
Toothbrush looks great and the handle feels good, however the bristles are pretty hard! I’d say they are more firm than my old plastic toothbrush which was labeled “medium”. Unfortunately, this brush does hurt my gums quite a bit. Also, I wish there was a different color option to avoid confusion with other members of the household. My husband’s has a charming piece of blue painters tape on his.
Everything I need in a toothbrush. I wish the bristles could be compostable, but it's still great to have a fully compostable bamboo handle. It feels nice in my hand, and I think that these toothbrushes actually last longer than "regular" plastic ones (at least, I haven't noticed the bristles starting to wear down yet like a plastic toothbrush's bristles would by this time. When do you REALLY need to replace a bamboo toothbrush, anyway?)
I've tired other bamboo toothbrushes but these are my favorite as of right now. The bristles stay in place, they are sturdy but not too hard that they hurt. I've noticed my teeth feeling extra clean. The handle is smooth and I'm not afraid of it splintering. Plus they are super affordable.
I have used this product for several days now and am loving it! It goes on so smooth when I wet it a little in my sink.
I would compare it’s effectiveness to other natural aluminum free deodorants and have not noticed any BO smell, I am a recreational athlete so this is important! It won’t keep you from sweating but neither do any of the other natural deodorants. Best of all this is plastic free!!
I am absolutely amazed at how well this stone worked for me. Even with standard and natural deodorant I would have a sour smell by the end of the day. I've been using this stone for a few weeks and I don't smell at all. It's been fantastic!
Been using the stone for about a week and I've been enjoying it. I still sweat, but I am considerable less stinky with the stone. It's nice to have a deo that is low-waste and doesn't stain my clothes. Like others have mentioned, it's best to use the stone right out of the shower. If I forget and dry my pits I'll spritz them with a little rosewater or witch hazel to apply it. Appreciate the super fast shipping too.
So a few months ago I stopped using antiperspirant cold turkey and started using this. At first it didn't work. I gave it probably three weeks and smelled pretty bad. I tried a couple other natural deodorants afterward and my body odor only seemed to get worse. Finally I decided to give this stone another try and now it works so amazingly well! I think my body just needed extra time to "detox," whatever that means, and was probably working from the get go, I just smelled extra bad during that three week time frame!
I quit antiperspirants because they made my armpits super itchy, and so far I've had absolutely no irritation with this product! I apply it to wet armpits straight out of the shower so I don't need to run the stone under water. Can't recommend this product enough!
I get the hype. My underarm skin peels with just about every single commercial deodorant I've tried. This stone is amazing and the peeling hasn't happened once. I apply it right after a shower, and it keeps me dry for a large portion of the day. I do have to touch up with Tom's sometimes, but not as much as I was expecting to. Great little stone!
Good for any old day honestly. I have a big bum so I wear thongs often because they are more comfortable for me (not lingerie thongs tho, come on, those are horrendous).
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 (:
I bought silk floss refills with the glass dispenser and it works really well. I love the aesthetics of the glass dispenser, too. I plan to try the corn floss next.
Refillable floss that's biodegradable is great, but the corn floss breaks pretty much every other time I use it. I'll probably stick with it, but it does take some getting used to.
I was a bit concerned after reading the description that said it "may break in tight spots", but I have had no problems at all! I am impressed with the quality of the floss and will definitely continue to purchase.
I love the container because it's plain! It's very easy to use and quite compact. I also like that my teeth feel thoroughly clean after I floss! However, I have a lot of fillings and tight areas, so unfortunately the corn floss itself isn't a great fit for those spots. I'll be using it in the areas that I can, and I'll definitely give the silk floss a go. The nice thing is, for the most part, I just need a different refillable floss type. I'm happy that it's plastic free !! And very cost effective!
I was excited to make the switch to this dental floss! The pros are that is is both vegan and compostable. The downsides are that it is pretty thick and that it breaks between some of my teeth. Those traits mean I will not be able to convince others in my house to use it, but I'll keep at it.
I've been eating these mints on an almost regular basis after lunch. When I'm at work I'm usually in a hurry and don't have time to brush my teeth after so these mints are really nice and easy to use. I do want to point out though, that I only use them because of the xyletol in them and not actually for "fresh breath". I've only tried the orange flavor so far so I can't speak for the other flavors yet but It's definitely more like a candy.
These are so good. I can't decide which flavor is the best.
I sadly did not like these at all. I was excited to purchase them but they didn’t stand out to me, especially at $6. They just lacked in flavor/taste. I can’t see them “covering up” any bad breath. I gave 3 stars because I like the package and idea.
These are really nice to have. I keep some in my purse for emergency breath refresh. The orange cardamom is amazing. I am trying NOT to eat them all at once they are so good. I highly recommend these in their handy little box.
After cleaning this brush numerous times, I still find it awkward (as noted below), but it's getting easier. The trick to cleaning it is to thoroughly comb or brush it to remove as many hair strands as you can before cleaning.
With most hair strands removed, it's much easier to scrub carefully with a mild soap and a nail brush, sideways under running water, being careful to not get water into the brush. Then I let it dry, face down so any water runs out.
Solid, but quite light. Just the right amount of stiffness in the bristles, gets through tangles and scratches the scalp in a good way. Feels like it will still be a great brush for years to come.
This brush is sturdy and made of quality materials, and feels like it will last several years. If I was basing this review on durability, it would get 5 out of 5.
However it requires frequent cleaning (at least in the land of LA smog) and is difficult to clean. You can't submerge the brush and soak it. You have to be careful not to get water in to it, while awkwardly scrubbing the wooden bristles.
I wish the rubber portion that held the bristles could be popped out and washed separately, then popped back in again.
Rose water was easy and simple to make with these dried rose petals. I was happy to know they were also organic and edible! I added a couple splashes into some homemade lemonade for an amazing aromatic afternoon treat.
