A while back I mentioned I tried using a zero waste bamboo toothbrush to help reduce my plastic waste. I still don’t get how the nylon bristles are biodegradable unless it’s a special grade nylon that biodegrades down quickly, but anyway more on that later.
I recently gave it another try a few weeks ago and quickly in a day got over I’m brushing my teeth with a twig, which initially put me off. Neither have the bristles like regular toothbrushes started making my teeth feel like they’re on edge after 3 weeks which is a big deal for me. Continue reading “Bamboo Toothbrush”

As I do most of my beauty products shopping online I thought I’d share with you my go to online Korean cosmetics sites!
Depending on price and what’s available I use several sites. Select products I can only get at one store, others I can get at quite a few depending on price. Prices vary between the sites so I always check each time. As much as I’m loyal to my favourite products, new brands and products are always popping up so I always check to see what’s new! Few stores Continue reading “My Go To Online Korean Cosmetic Stores”
Back in January I went to see an American dental hygienist Elena, recommended by a friend for an American style dental clean here in Barcelona. It was a life changing or life habit changing visit!
Basically I’ve been cleaning my teeth wrong for ions. I was having gum issues that started when I began wearing my new retainers. One of my old retainers, a ‘flipper’ retainer from years ago broke about a year ago when I started rewearing them after a years break. I paid the price skipping a year with tooth movement, hence new retainers. The replacements are like clear mouth guards. Flippers are more hygienic as I could eat with them in and silva could do it’s job. The way they’re designed they don’t trap nasties or bacteria that can cause plague Continue reading “How to Brush Your Teeth Correctly And Why I Don’t Like My New Retainers”
Beauty Finds is back!
These are a few finds from way back in November and December last year. Some products you know what will work or not work straight away, others takes a few weeks. As our skin renews itself every month I like to give most products a chance to see if they work.
I have a few requirements with beauty finds. No animal testing and no animal ingredients apart from honey as I’m a bad vegan and eat it. Bee venom, royal jelly, snails slime, shark squalane, lanolin, no. No crap ingredients like SLS, parabens, phthalates, mineral oil aka petroleum Continue reading “November December 2017 Beauty Finds”
