Product Review: Himalaya Herbals Complete Care Herbal Toothpaste

Saturday, September 6, 2014

     Hi dearies! Today I'm going to share my thoughts on my first toothpaste review. Ya'll know that I have a yellowish teeth, it's from the combination of genes and the love for coffee and tea. The stains from these drinks are stubborn and sometimes those problems are solved only by teeth experts. Since the only solution to whiten my teeth is by replacing my old veneer and or have a laser teeth whitening, I will not expect regular toothpaste and whitening toothpaste to make magic on the whitening department. 

     All I know right now is that regular toothpastes will keep my gums healthy, make my teeth stronger and prevent other problems like plaque and bad breath to arise. Have you tried using herbal toothpaste before? I've seen Himalaya Herbals Complete Care Herbal Toothpaste in supermarket shelves before and I was a bit hesitant to try it because it's herbal and in my opinion it will produce less foam while brushing. To know more about the product information and my honest to goodness review, click CONTINUE READING please :)
Product Review: Himalaya Herbals Complete Care Herbal Toothpaste
Himalaya Herbals Complete Care Herbal Toothpaste 
     Healthy gums are the key to healthy teeth and oral hygiene. The Himalaya Herbals Gum Expert range of toothpaste has Miswak and natural astringents which ensure your gums remain healthy and protected. 

    Himalaya Herbals Complete care herbal toothpaste is an advanced herbal formulation that provides 12 hour protection from harmful germs and removes surface stains and plaque build-up on teeth.

     Since I have a yellowish teeth, I'm not expecting this toothpaste to make it whiter. So here are the things that you should expect while using this toothpaste according to what is written on the box packaging:
  • Healthy gums 
  • Strong teeth 
  • Fresh breath 
  • 100% Vegetarian 
  • Free from Parabens 
  • 12 hour protection from harmful germs 
  • Removes Plaque 
  • Helps prevent tooth decay 
  • Advanced gum tightening system 
  • Helps reduce glum bleeding and prevents inflammation 
  • Maintains clean and white teeth 
  • Refreshing taste 
  • Long lasting fresh breath
     The 7 main ingredients of this toothpaste are mostly from nature. Neem I think is the main ingredient for most of Himalaya Herbals products and it is an anti-bacterial in nature.
  • Pomegranate fruit rind has astringent, antibacterial and antioxidant properties. Recent studies have shown that Pomegranate also helps to combat dental plaque.
  • Neem have been used for hundreds of years as an extremely effective method of total oral hygiene. Neem bark has been reported for the presence of phenolic and antioxidant activity. Bark also has anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties.
  • Indian Gum Arabic Tree's fresh twigs are used to protect gums and teeth. Bark extract has tannins which are known for its antioxidant properties.
  • Triphala is an astringent which stops gum bleeding. Rich in Tannins and phenolic compounds which are responsible for antioxidant properties. It also helps in healing mouth ulcers.
  • Bishop's Weed, a revered herb in Ayurveda, is used as a home-remedy for various ailments. It has mouth-freshening, antiseptic, astringent and carminative properties.
  • False Black Pepper has anti-inflammatory properties, which are effective in treating swollen gums. Fruits are rich in antioxidant component called flavonoids.
  • Five-Leaved Chaste Tree is valued for its oral anti-inflammatory, analgesic and antioxidant properties.

What I like:
  • This toothpaste is made mostly of herbal ingredients.
  • The price is affordable.
  • The texture is smooth.
  • It foams up well.
  • It has a fresh minty taste.
  • I feel that my teeth are squeaky clean after brushing.
  • Easily accessible
  • Batch, manufacturing and expiry date printed on the box packaging.
What I don't like:
  • The medicinal and herbal-ish scent.
  • There's an after taste that I cannot explain even though it taste minty at first.
Will I repurchase? Maybe Yes and No. 

     I give this a 3.75/5 rating. Since I have a very sensitive nose, the scent of a product is one of the important factor that I always consider. I prefer strong cool minty scent toothpaste and this one failed in this department. Even though it tastes minty, the herbal-ish scent is still there and lingers in my nose while brushing my teeth. BUT all in all I had a great experience with the toothpaste. It's just me and my sensitive nose that can't stand the medicinal scent.

     This review is based solely on my experience after using the product for two weeks. If you don't have sensitive nose, I recommend this product. If you're looking for a toothpaste that contains mostly natural ingredients that will make your teeth and mouth smelling fresh and squeaky clean then you should try this!
