Camping using Reco (AD)

*This post contains an item that was gifted to me in exchange for my opinion. This has in no way affected what I think of the product and I have given my own honest opinion throughout. I am very fortunate to be able to travel up and down the country with my partner Andy, in a van we have kitted out for camping. We’ve put up shelves (well Andy has, I just painted them) and added storage boxes to contain all of our belongings safely and securely. However, with it being the two of us in what is a relatively small van (it’s a Vauxhall Vivaro), space is at a premium and so we are restricted on the items we can take. I’m someone who loves her toiletries and beauty products but I know I am restricted on space and have to be quite strict with what I take. To clean my face I use bio-degradable wipes and for my moisturiser, I use the Simple everyday cream with SPF that comes in a small squeezable pouch.One of the biggest toiletries we take is always the toothpaste tube because the travel sized versions are never big enough for two people. So when Reco contacted me and asked me if I would like to try out their Toothtabs, I was looking forward to seeing if this would solve that problem.So what are Toothtabs?They are an alternative to toothpaste in a tube and arrive in plastic free, compostable packaging which is great if you are trying to do your bit in helping the environment. Reco state that they are “cruelty free and vegan, and is made up of natural ingredients.” It contains fluoride which helps keep your teeth strong and healthy in the same way regular toothpaste does.How does it work?One tab is enough for one brushing. You simply pop it in your mouth and chew it until it forms a paste. You then wet your toothbrush and then start brushing as normal.Reco currently offer a 31 day trial pack for just £3 with no shipping costs so that you can try them for yourself. Click here for more information.Whats the catch?There is no catch but after 31 days your subscription then automatically turns to a rolling 3 monthly subscription costing £11.50 (only £3.83 a month) which can be cancelled at any time.What did I think?Once I started using them and seeing how easy and mess free they were, I thought they were perfect especially for when we are away camping. However, I started noticing how much whiter my teeth were looking and how they felt healthier too and so I’ve been using them at home too. Andy has even tried them too and hasn’t hated them which is a good sign from a man that is never bothered about the products he uses. If you’ve tried them, I’d love to know what you think in the comments below.

  1. That sounds like such a cool product. I am a dental hygienist and I have not heard of this before. I need to check it out, thanks for sharing!

  2. I really want to try some tooth tabs! One of my favourite YouTubers mentioned them in a video as she explained how millions of normal toothpaste tubes just end up in landfill, so they’re a great alternative. I think they should be available easily everywhere, so that you can go and get your pot refilled as well! I definitely hope to see them becoming more of a thing as all I’ve heard is great things so far 🙂

  3. Sounds like a super cool option – I love all the new custom products that are coming out!

  4. I absolutely love this product! The tooth tabs are so convenient, simple and easy to use. What a great way to use them on a camping trip! xxx

  5. I recently discovered something like this at a store we have in the US called LUSH. They have the toothpaste tabs and they have the same thing as a shampoo (weird I know). I got a free sample but haven’t tried it yet. I was thinking that these are great alternatives for when you travel by plane and you are limited to the liquids you can take in the carry on luggage. Thank you for the informative review. I will definitely look into this more.

  6. I’ve never heard of toothpaste tabs but what a great idea. Not just for camping but for airline cabin bags, sleepovers, the possibilities are endless. Thank you for the recommendation! Lisa x

  7. I haven’t heard of these before but they sound so handy, convenient and affordable too! It’s great you noticed that your teeth felt healthier as well. Sounds like a fantastic product all round – thank you for introducing it! <3 xx

  8. Travelling in a van is so cool, I’m so jealous! I’ve been watching a lot of van life videos on YouTube recently and I’m obsessed with getting one when I have the money 😍 I love the idea of these toothpaste tablets, especially with the plastic free packaging. Sounds way better than regular toothpaste!

    1. Definitely go for it, although I’d say plan ahead because there is a few things we would do differently.
      They are such a good product. Thank you for reading 🙂

  9. My friends love tooth-tabs, mostly because the formula actually creates a workable paste in your mouth, instead of a sad bit of foam, and also because it saves the plastic on the tubes! I am not sure what brand they buy from but their tabs come in recycled glass bottles.

  10. Brushing the teeth is an absolute nightmare with my 2 autistic kids. I’m always looking for different options. Not sure this would work, but could be a consideration.

  11. I had no idea these existed but they seem a much better option than messy toothpaste. Huge bonus that they’re in recyclable packaging too and they seem to be improving your teeth
