Lush Review: Toothy Tabs

Since I now live in Norwich, there's a Lush store really close to where I live.  I've really loved every single Lush product I've ever tried and I've definitely tried my fair few! So on Saturday when I was shopping with my boyfriend, we popped into Lush.

These toothy tabs immediately caught my eye.  As most of you probably are, I'm always on the lookout for anything that'll make my teeth noticeably whiter so at £2.50 for a box of tabs which are used instead of using your daily tube of toothpaste it'd be rude not to give them a little try!

Lush say: Sparkle Toothy Tab is a dose of sweet vanilla flavour and makes for a very effective palate cleanser. The black pepper gives a radiating warmth after you’ve finished brushing.

Makes teeth sparkle! 

If you want people to stop you in the street when they spot your pearly whites, use Sparkle! Lemon peel powder and Sicilian lemon oil will make your teeth sparkle brightly. Every smile should be so perfect.

I'm sure you'll agree when I say that the tab doesn't look the most appetising thing in the world.  I did smell the tab first which was probably the wrong thing to do as all I could smell was an overwhelming pepper flavour.
The instructions are to nibble a tab between your front teeth, basically crumble it up a little bit. Wet your toothbrush, start brushing and the tab will foam up and leave you with sparkly gnashers! I wasn't expecting the sparkle straight away though, I knew it'd take some time.

When brushing my teeth I was actually heaving at the taste. It was the most horrendous taste I've ever had to endure in my whole entire life. So much for a "sweet vanilla scent", my mouth was practically on fire afterwards from a pepper overload! If you can brush your teeth more than once with these then I take my hat off to you. I will never ever use these again!  

I much prefer to have a really minty taste in my mouth after brushing my teeth anyway because it just makes it that much fresher for you.  I couldn't tell the difference after one brush, my teeth weren't sparkly but as I said, it would take time for that to happen.  There are another 5 flavours in the Toothy Tabs range but I just couldn't bring myself to ever buy a packet again.

Have you tried these? Will you try them?

  3. I was really excited when I first started reading this post as I have just posted about how Im now on the look at for some cheap tooth whitening products. I don't think I will be purchasing these they defo dont look very nice and obviously were a big waste of money xx

  4. i was given some samples of these when i was last in lush, the smell put me off so much i couldn't even contemplate trying them haha! xxx

  5. I got some of the dirty ones, which are meant to be minty, but my god they were awful! Like chewing slightly minty chalk. They didn't foam up at all and I ended up spitting it out and starting again with normal toothpaste! In the bin!

  6. This is the only product I hate from LUSH, I had a pack of the dirty, they tasted of fish, I emailed LUSH and they sent me a replacement and a few extras, they still tasted foul. :/
