Smyle: Sustainable Toothpaste (Review)

Smyle is a company I found advertised on Instagram and of course, I had to try it. They focus on zero plastic waste products and given toothpaste tubes are non-reuseable and get thrown away so easily, it's something that does need to be looked into. Smyle hope to pioneer seroplastic bathrooms, and they are starting with toothpaste.

Toothpaste Tabs are cute and sustainable at the same time. They are completely natural. The ingredients we use are healthy for your teeth and don’t harm the environment. They are former from natural ingredients, such as eucalyptus and peppermint. They can be stored in a glass bottle or a tine, which last forever but can also easily be recycled. Refills come in special compostable paper sachet refill packs which can then be transferred into containers. A standard refill package contains 125 Toothpaste Tabs, enough for two months of brushing, twice a day. 

The toothpaste is easy to use. You simply crush the mint with your teeth, brush with a wet toothbrush and rinse your mouth. I didn't love how it came packaged, just because it was in a normal envelope but inside, the package contained a refill packet, reusable storage tin and instruction card. Nothing was damaged and it meant there wasn't much waste which was good. 

One of my favourite parts about this company is that they actually emailed me to check how my trial was going and letting me know it was going to be billed within a week. This gave me the flexibility to delay the schedule (which I did, as I still was using my old toothpaste at the time), or to cancel the subscription without an unexpected extra charge. 

Overall, I love the simplicity of the product and I love the zero waste hopes. I personally don't love the toothpaste itself but that could perhaps be just because I am not used to the products. However, I do think it will be great to take on travels and trips as it is so easy to store and takes up hardly any room. To try it for yourself, you can get a trial using my link.
