GULP- Give Up Loving Pop Campaign

Today I wanted to talk about a new campaign well new to me it originally started in 2015, Gulp standing for Give Up Loving Pop. This campaign was created by Food Active with aim to raise awareness of just how harmful sugary drinks can be and hopefully make people think twice about how many fizzy drinks they consume.

The facts
* Regular consumption of fizzy drinks is strongly associated with with being overweight, diabetes     and tooth decay.
*Sugary drinks are the biggest source of added sugar in young peoples diet
*If everything else in their diet is equal a person who has a can of coke a day adds an extra 14.5 pounds per year from calories alone.
* Each can of coke contains 9 cubes of sugar 
Personally I think them facts alone are enough to make you give up, Im not telling you to cut them out completely but to try and replace some sugary drinks with water is a great start or even diet or sugar free fizzy drinks is a compromise. Often these sugary drinks aren't fizzy so don't let that catch you out, sugar is hidden with it having over 50 different names. 

The GULP campaign is challenging you to completely give up sugary drinks, think you can do it? Sign up here.

CB12- Mouth Wash

2 December 2016

Cb12 Mouthwash ensures that your breath smells amazing for up to 12 hours using its unique formula to do so. The difference with this product compared to a normal mouthwash is that it is also a teeth whitener, that claims to give whiter teeth within two weeks as it removes any stains or discolouration you may have on you're teeth as well as protecting against future stains. This is available in 50ml, 100ml and 250ml and is in a peppermint favour. 

The verdict
The taste is pleasant, it feels nice and gentle and isn't too strong but it weirdly makes your mouth feel dry so make sure you have some water on hand. Its amazing for when you've had any spicy foods as it leaves your mouth feeling so fresh and it feels like it takes all the flavours away from your mouth. Overall it leaves your teeth feeling and looking a lot cleaner and fresher I haven't noticed much difference in terms of white yet but it does give a general cleaner and healthier look to your teeth. Its priced at £15 for 250ml which is more expensive than ordinary mouthwash but it does give a much better result than the average mouthwash.

This is also stocked at boots which is linked here. 

Nano B Toothbrushes

I recently received two Nano B toothbrushes to review, for those of you who haven't heard of Nano B before they are online company selling toothbrushes. All of the toothbrushes are coach with either silver, gold, bamboo charcoal particles that helps to kill bacteria and prevent any bacteria growth on your toothbrushes. The last fact I love about these toothbrushes is that they are resistant to air borne bacteria which is a huge bonus as the bacteria that can get on your toothbrushes is truly disgusting as there are 10 million bacteria living on your toothbrush (how vile)!!

I for one think that these toothbrushes are super cute, I love the design of them it adds a nicer touch to our normally boring toothbrushes and at £7.99 they aren't too expensive either. They also come in a handy case which makes it easy to travel with, I've already taken this on my travels and its so much easier having this case to put it in.
