Kingfisher Mint With Fluoride Toothpaste & The Environmental Toothbrush Size Medium - Review

My first time trying a vegan and cruelty-free toothbrush and toothpaste! 

The Environmental Toothbrush is an environmentally-friendly toothbrush made from bamboo, a natural cellulose fibre. They are 100% biodegradable, contain no animal products, environmentally sustainable, and do not pollute the environment.

I thought that buying this toothbrush would make a change to me buying my unfriendly plastic toothbrushes. The environmentally friendly idea is there with this toothbrush, but what I didn't think about was how it would taste in my mouth when brushing. I found that it tasted like damp wood which wasn't very nice at all. I persisted with the brush for a few more days but I just couldn't get used to the strange taste. Unfortunately, I don't think I'll be using this toothbrush again.

Kingfisher uses all natural ingredients and contains no artificial colourings, flavourings, sweeteners or preservatives as well as being gluten-free, GM-free and made in the UK. As well as this they don't test on animals and contain no animal products. The flavours available range from Mint to Fennel which also include fluoride free toothpaste.

After reading what normal toothpastes contain I decided to try one with a more natural ingredient. I ended up coming across Kingfisher and choose the Mint flavoured toothpaste with Fluoride. As soon as I tried this toothpaste I could taste a really strange lemony flavour, not something that I'm used to in a mint toothpaste. The paste was thinner than what I'm used to, but still left my teeth feeling fresh and clean. I continued to try the toothpaste to see if I would get used to the flavouring but unfortunately, I didn't. Although, on the other hand, my Mum did say that she liked the taste of it and didn't find it strange at all, so I guess it just comes down to personal taste.
