White Fang Toothpaste Jelly was the first of the exclusive to Liverpool-Spa-store toothpaste jellies that I tried. I’m always brutally honest in my reviews and I hold my hands up, I really wasn’t sure how I’d feel about the toothpaste jellies.
Slathering your skin with Lush lotions and potions is very different to putting them in your mouth. With the toothpaste jellies it wasn’t their consistency that was putting me off (quite the contrary actually, they are pretty much just like the toothpaste we are used to picking up from supermarkets). It was the idea of Lush scents becoming actual flavours that left me hesitant.
Pushing my feelings to one side, I reminded myself that I had been perfectly ok with Lush’s Toothy and Mouthwash Tabs previous to this, I can remember feeling exactly the same on the morning in which the Mouthwash Tabs were first released back in August 2016.
With this in mind,￼ the next time I was in Liverpool I decided to pick up all 10 of the toothpaste jellies. All I was sure about when I left Lush Liverpool was that I wouldn’t need to buy any more toothpaste again for a very long time. 😆 Looks wise the toothpaste jellies are very similar to how the jelly face masks look in their little pots.
All you do to use them is run your toothbrush under the tap followed by dipping it in the pot of toothpaste jelly. Some have been put off by this as they feel it’s a hygiene issue. I have however seen that some people are using a wooden tooth pick or reusable cuticle sticks to get it out of the pot and onto the brush, this is probably the best method I have heard to stop any risks of cross contamination.
White Fang contains peppermint and wild mint oil which is why I decided it would be the best one to try first. Scent and taste wise it’s the closet to a standard supermarket-bought minty toothpaste out of them all.
Even though White Fang smelt just like a standard minty toothpaste I was still really nervous about using it. White Fang was however a very positive tooth-cleaning-experience! I don’t think I would be able to tell the difference between it and a standard toothpaste if blind folded.
A little of the toothpaste jelly goes a very long way. One quick dip left enough on the brush to clean all of my teeth. It foamed up quickly and left my mouth feeling fresh. I did feel as if I needed to use mouthwash after using it but other than that I found it just as good as any other toothpaste.
After trying the White Fang toothpaste jelly I was left feeling much more confident about trying the others. I am actually looking forward to reviewing the rest of them for you all on here. If you are on the fence about trying the toothpaste jellies, based on it’s minty scent and flavour alone I’d definitely recommend trying out the White Fang toothpaste first .
