My latest review is on Himalaya Toothpaste! Who doesn’t love brushing their teeth?! (Besides maybe preschoolers or people with no teeth…hmmm.) Anyways, I was excited to receive my sample package from Moms Meet and see that it came with some….wait for it….Swag!!
This is a beautiful pouch decorated with the traditional art form of block printing. It’s also made with unbleached cotton and non-toxic or natural dyes. You can learn more about the impact of Matr Boomie and view more designs at matrboomie.com/blockprint.
I also received a nice little tote bag…and we know that I love tote bags!
This beauty is made from upcycled saris worn from the women of India. Himalaya Herbal Healthcare supports Self Employed Women’s Association (SEWA) by sponsoring this amazing bag! I think this is a fantastic partnership and I really love seeing collaborations like this!
So on to the toothpaste!
I was able to try out six different flavors as well as a 100% bamboo toothbrush. I was really curious about the bamboo toothbrush, I mean how can bamboo be comfortable to brush with?
Well, I was pleasantly surprised because the entire brush was very lightweight and the bristles were incredibly soft! It felt like I was brushing my teeth with a pillow! I find this especially pleasing because I have sensitive teeth so some toothbrushes can be a little rough.
The first flavor I had to try was the cinnamon. I love cinnamon on EVERYTHING…I seriously can’t get enough so of course I had to go for the cinnamon toothpaste first.
I could not believe how amazing this tasted! It was like brushing my teeth with a pack of cinnamon Trident gum! Now, I know cinnamon is not for everyone and many people are allergic…but for you cinnamon lovers out there, this is a must for your toothpaste collection. –I don’t know if anyone actually has a toothpaste collection, but you get the idea.
Then I tried the spearmint, mint, and peppermint flavors.
The unique thing about this line of toothpaste is that it is gluten free, SLS free, carrageenan free and fluoride free. I know there is some debate on whether or not fluoride is good for you, but if you are completely against fluoride then I definitely recommend this line for you. –You can do your own research on the pros and cons of fluoride. What I was most surprised about was the taste of all of the toothpaste flavors. They tasted just like any popular brand toothpaste. I was expecting it to taste a little bland, but was shocked at how good they all were. I will say that there was a slight “fake sugar” aftertaste, but it wasn’t strong enough to be deal-breaker.
Then I tried the Whitening toothpastes!
I was a little bummed that there wasn’t a cinnamon version of this one, but the mint and peppermint tasted just fine, too. The flavors were more subtle than their non-whitening counterparts, but still tasted just like any of the popular brand pastes. Again, I have sensitive teeth so I wasn’t sure what to expect from the whitening products. But, after a few brushes there was no irritation or sensitivity. Win! As for the whitening aspect, I’m not sure I used them long enough to see an effect. I will have to continue using them for a while and then report back with an update.
Overall, I was pleased with this product and I like the idea that it doesn’t contain a lot of the harsh chemicals that can be found in other products. You can learn more about the ingredients here.
