The Deetz on … SARAKAN nature’s toothpaste

Image

This is another purchase from Holland and Barrett that you can get here (£2.49) and also if you search it you may find places that do it a bit cheaper. So basically I’m up for trying anything that has a more natural basis as opposed to chemical filled (the fact it’s fluoride free is a massive winner for me).

Here are The Deetz on this product…

My opinion …

The smell is very fresh which I like, as it is reminiscent of commercial toothpastes (I’m sorry I just need that minty scent for my teeth to feel clean). My Dad and sister thought it smelt like a dentists, which is also a positive. Upon usage it’s quite strange as it doesn’t foam up like other toothpastes (that’s the lacks of SLS), which is weird at first, as you think there isn’t enough product (but there is, a pea size amount is suffice). It has a very fresh taste, not the typical mint taste, but fresh and minty nonetheless. My teeth feel wonderfully clean afterwards and I feel better as it’s free from some harmful chemicals. I really like this product, it’s an essential for me, so I have to give it a 5/5 (as for the whitening properties, I don’t think I’ve used it long enough to see the results, but I’ll definitely keep y’all posted).

Edit: The product has a website www.sarakan.com for more info.
