Floss like a boss with Sunstar gum

Good day lovies!

Did you know that the plaque that dental floss removes holds more than 300 different species of bacteria. Enamel of the teeth is the hardest substance in the body but without brushing and dental floss tiny bacteria can destroy it.

Cleaning in-between is quick and easy with the right tools and know-how.As well as having the widest range of floss and interdental tools in SA , Sunstar Gum has created a brand-new series of short videos (+/- 30 seconds each) demonstrating how to 'floss like a boss' - even if you have implants braces or don't like floss. The videos are live on 

I have gathered up information below on how to floss correctly and a short review of the Sunstar gum floss products available

.How to Floss Like a Boss
By Dirna Grobbelaar, Ivohealth’s Oral Hygiene Advisor

1.     Take about 30cm of floss
2.     Wind the floss around your middle fingers
3.     Hold it floss between thumbs and index fingers
4.     Slide the floss in-between teeth using a gentle back-and-forth sawing action
5.     Fold floss around the side of a tooth in a C-shape
6.     Slide the floss up and down, against tooth and just under the gum line
7.     Repeat on the neighbouring tooth
8.     Pull out and repeat using a clean section of the floss

Now let's get into the products..

Paul Wilson never fails to impress me with the packaging. How cute is this?!. 

Gum original white floss ( R51)
Helps remove stains and plaque from between the teeth

This is a great standard floss if you have plague that  needs to be removed. It works on all teeth types and is extremely gentle on gums. The floss has strength and does not easily break when in contact with the teeth.

Gum Expanding floss ( R55)
Ideal if you have small gaps in between your teeth , sensitive or receding gums. This is easy to insert , even between the tightest contacts , and expands during use , for an exceptional clean.

This by far has to be my favorite floss out of all. The above description is exactly what my teeth are like. This product is true to its promise and gets into the most tiniest gaps leaving them spotless clean!. I highly recommend this to everyone. You won't regret it.

Healing earth | Products review

Hello beauties!
It's winter. You know what that means? Dryness. Dryness everywhere!. If you like me then you know the struggle of dry skin .
Healing Earth kindly sent me some goodies to review for you guys that will help in this weather.
Healing ocean hand & body wash.

You know those busy days when you come home from work/school and you feel as if you're in a mess? . yes i have those days too. Using this product after a hectic day really calms down my mind with its marvelous scent. This body wash smells very earthy and i love it. It lathers up pretty well and surprisingly it's very moisturizing aswell. The packaging is the! Its super adorable and the quote leaves me in awe everytime. I love the dispenser too as u pump out exactly how much you need and its not waste prone. The product contains ingredients such as argan oil ,jojoba oil , lavender oil and much more! Your body will thank you after using this.

Next up to the soothing rewinding bath is the healing ocean -ocean crystals.

This product is your body washes  wing man. These two work perfectly together. It helps soothe ached muscles and overall calm your mind and provide you with relaxation . It has a pleasant spa-type scent and its packaging yet again is amazing.

The best for last is none other then the healing earth softening grape foot oil.

If you have dry feet this product is a must have. I've always had dry feet and I've tried many things to help with it in the past such as pedirelax , vaseline wrapped in glad wrap but nothing seemed to give me relief. This product however was instantly drank up by my heels and it stayed soft for around 2 days. I highly recommend this oil to everyone seeking softer feet. Healing earth yet again outdone it with the packing. The dispenser is amazing to handle the amount of product you going to use.
Overall this brand highly impressed me and my expectations. I really recommend you give them a try. I can guarantee you it would be worth it.
Take care lovies.

Until next time xoxox

I was sent  8 products to help me achieve  perfect pearly white teeth and here is my reviews on the products.


Step 1: Brush

GUM Technique Plus toothbrush (R57.40)

 (Information obtained from
The GUM Technique toothbrush is designed to provide advanced cleaning with its quad-grip handle designed to allow the recommended 45 degree angle for optimal cleaning. Clinical studies showed a 33% reduction in gingivitis in six weeks. The special non-slip thumb grips are uniquely positioned so that the bristles are effortlessly placed at the angle for optimal below-the-gumline cleaning.

The Dome Trim® bristles are clinically proven to clean below the gumline, where periodontal disease starts, thereby reducing plaque, gingival inflammation and bleeding. The extended SuperTip eliminates plaque from hard to reach places. The ergonomically designed handle provides a comfortable, thicker grip for more effective brushing.

My thoughts on the product:
This by far , has been the best toothbrush I've ever used . I love the size - it's so flexible and gets the work done!. All my life I've always used larger brushes and it was always tough brushing in circular motion as instructed by dentists. I also adore the fact that it comes with a cover-keeps the germs away!.

  GUM Original White toothpaste (R52)

 (Information obtained from
The improved formula is scientifically proven to effectively remove stains and help prevent their reappearance, while strengthening gums and teeth.

My thoughts on the product :
Lights,camera,action. Do you want pearly white teeth that would be fit for a Hollywood close up scene?then I think this product is for you. It helps to whiten and brighten teeth , leaving them healthy and fresh. A little amount goes along way and it tastes really refreshing.


 GUM Original White floss (R51)
 (Information obtained from
 GUM Original White Floss, made with micronized silica, helps remove stains between teeth and provides effective interdental plaque control.
 My thoughts on the product :
I think this product is fabulous for getting in between your gums. I love the quality of it- the floss is not fragile at all and it does what it claims to do.

GUM Easy Flossers x 30 (R50.31)
 (Information obtained from
GUM Easy Flossers are designed to make between-teeth cleaning simple, fast, and effective by holding the floss at the right tension with an easy-to-grip handle, allowing you to focus on the cleaning action between your teeth, rather than managing the floss around your fingers. Flossing will remove dental plaque from areas between the teeth most commonly missed by tooth brushing alone.

My thoughts on the product :
This product is fantastic for people like me who loves food but always get food stuck in between my teeth while I'm out and about with friends. Its easy to use and convenient with it's travel size case that comes with the floss. It's a handy dandy heaven! I always have this in my handbag - love it to bits!.

GUM Soft-Picks Advanced (R89)

  (Information obtained from

 GUM Soft-Picks Advanced are disposable dental picks with soft rubber bristles that gently massage and stimulate gums. GUM Soft-Picks Advanced have a longer and curved-shaped handle to allow you to simply and comfortably clean between back teeth and other hard-to-reach places. These easy-to-use between-teeth cleaners also have a sturdy handle for a controlled grip when cleaning around crowns, bridges, implants, dentures, and orthodontic appliances. The flexible and tapered synthetic rubber bristles fit easily between most teeth, removing dental plaque where gum disease often starts and toothbrushes alone cannot reach. Each package comes with an on-the-go travel case for convenient use anytime, anywhere.

 My thoughts on the product :
I have an entire post solely dedicated for this product you can check out my thoughts on it here

GUM Flosbrush Automatic (R104)

   (Information obtained from
This nifty gadget automatically dispenses a measure of shred-resistant floss on an ergonomically designed handle. The used floss is stored in a chamber within the handle, completely separate from the clean floss. The GUM Flosbrush Automatic contains enough floss for 250 uses.
 My thoughts on the product :
By far , this is my most favourite oral care product. I LOVE EVERYTHING ABOUT IT - it's versatile , convenient and easy to use. With the regular floss you may injure your fingers by wrapping the floss around too hard , but with this product your hands will thank you!. This is my holy grail item and I think I'm going to forever repurchase it. You get rid of the nasty floss by just a scroll!If you were to purchase anything that I mentioned today , I highly recommend you to try this one out first. You won't be disappointed .


  GUM Tongue Cleaner (recommended retail price R51.35)

   (Information obtained from
GUM Dual Action Tongue Cleaner efficiently removes dental plaque, food debris, and dead cells from the surface of the tongue. One side of the tongue cleaner consists of two rows of bristles that reach into the tiny folds and crevices on the tongue surface to dislodge the dental plaque and debris. The other side of the cleaner consists of two rows of scrapers that remove the loosened plaque and debris for thorough cleaning

My thoughts on the product :
I totally adore the fact that Sunstar Gum came out with a brush for your tongue . This was the first time I've came across something like this and I was impressed. It does exactly what it claims to do. It leaves my tongue fresh , clean and it's so gentle on my tongue- which I love!

 My thoughts on the product :
This makes my breath super fresh at the end of my routine. It has a pleasant taste and has no alcohol which as a muslim , I really appreciate . My teeth feel smoother after a rinse with this- it gives me a reason to smile!
