Manufacturer’s Description: The Halos N Horns Toothy Fruity SLS free Toothpaste is a pink gel formulation that smells and tastes of fruity strawberries and bananas.
We have weeded out the SLS foaming agent found in the majority of children’s toothpastes so you don’t need to worry about your little tykes swallowing SLS when they brush their teeth. Of course, we recommend that you always supervise their brushing and encourage kids to have a good old spit after they have brushed their teeth to minimise swallowing.
We have also included fluoride in our toothy fruity formulation, so you know your kids are getting all of the tooth protection that they need – give yourself a gold star!
Rating: (5/5 stars)
Review: We were sent the Toothy Fruity toothpaste a little while ago to review, and Georgie has been using it ever since. We’ve even bought a second tube so there’s no possibility of us running out!
Right from the first brush, Georgie loved this toothpaste. Since we started using it, we don’t have to convince her to brush her teeth – instead, our trouble is now wrestling the toothbrush back out of her stubborn two-year-old death grip.
The only other brand of toothpaste we’ve used was a mint flavoured common brand one, which we got in our Bounty bags. Tooth brushing was never too easy and Georgie just wasn’t that bothered about the taste of the toothpaste.
With this Halos N Horns one, it couldn’t be more different. Georgie actually asks for more toothpaste once she has brushed the first lot away, which had never happened before. She used to just want to get the chore of brushing her teeth over & done with.
One great thing about this toothpaste is that it is SLS-free, unlike the previous toothpaste we were using. This dramatically lowers the “try not to let your toddler swallow the toothpaste” stress, as it’s no longer a major worry if she does swallow a bit. It’s really quite hard to teach a very small child the theory of “rinse & spit”.
I’ve tasted the toothpaste myself and it has a lovely flavour and you can really taste the fruit – it is predominately strawberry flavoured, which one of Georgie’s favourite fruits, so it’s easy to see why it’s a hit with our little girl.
It’s not hard to guess that we think this toothpaste deserves a 5 star rating.
