[sponsored review] Dentiste Plus White Nighttime Toothpaste & Kiss You Ionic Toothbrush

One of my favorite sponsored products! Came at a really good time cos I was having this dull lingering ache in my back teeth recently.

Dentiste Plus White Nighttime Toothpaste ($10.00 / 100g)

I'm pretty sure everyone has morning breath. So common that it has probably become the norm already. But it can be reduced or removed! The bad breath in the morning is actually caused by anaerobe bacteria which grows very quickly in the night due to a slower flow of saliva. Regular toothpastes are unable to effectively control oral bacteria, unlike Dentiste, which claims to be the only effective night-time toothpaste that controls bacteria and gives fresh morning breath!

It contains:
  • 14 natural extracts which are naturally antiseptic and antibacteria (like sage, peppermint, cinnamon etc)
  • Xylitol - natural taste enhancer, creating an unwelcome environment for bacteria
  • Cyclodextrin Complex - traps up bad bacteria
  • Stable Vitamin C - increase antibodies for healthy gums
  • Micronized silica complex - soothes sensitive teeth
Comes in a really cool pump bottle too!

PS. You can redeem your free Dentiste Plus White sample here!

Kiss You Ionic Toothbrush ($25.00 each)

This is really cool. It claims to be the most advanced toothbrush in the world! No it's not your regular or electric toothbrush. It's an IONIC toothbrush! In simple terms, it works by temporarily reversing the polarity of tooth surfaces. Plaque molecules are then repelled by the teeth and drawn to the toothbrush. Clinically shown to remove up to 48% more plaque! So cool right?!

It actually comes with a metal piece in the middle where we have to touch to 'activate' it. It's also battery-operated (to release the negative ions), and has replaceable brush heads.

My take: I used both products together so I'd just have to review them as a 'package' since I'm not sure which one did the job. Anyway, within days after using them, the dull ache disappeared. Saved me some dentist money, though I know it would be better to visit one still. 2 weeks later, not sure if I still have morning breath, but my mouth feels cleaner, both after brushing as well as in the morning. Not much of a whitening effect though. 

Where to buy:
  • Dentiste White Plus - Watsons, Guardian, SaSa, Nishino, OG, CGH Pharmacy, Mount Alvernia Pharmacy & major retailers
  • Kiss You toothbrush - Watsons

Wanted: Participants for Animal Communication practice

Lol never thought I'll be posting something like this on my blog. I'll probably get more feedback if I used Facebook but not sure how many genuinely want to help me. So, let's try this platform first.

I took the foundation level of animal communication last weekend, and I am now looking for participants (dogs or cats only) to help me practise. Even though I took this workshop so I could speak to Popo, I do realize and agree that it is more difficult to practise on your own pet because you already know him/her very well.

So what is animal communication? In simple terms, speaking to your pet. It's not verbal commands nor interpreting your pet's behavior. I'm not an animal behaviorist. I do not need to touch or see your pet in person. I just....connect. Or try to. Lol.

It is most important to understand that I am only a beginner, and I make mistakes. I don't get connected always, nor do I get all questions correct. That's why practice is important and I thank the people who truly want to help me improve.

♥ You must be the legal owner of the dog/cat.
♥ You must allow me to talk to your pet.
♥ No other animal communicators are speaking to him/her.
♥ The owner (you!) must not be too critical nor give negative comments. For a selfish but practical reason, it affects my confidence and that's not helping me improve. No need to lie either. Just tell me nicely that the answer doesn't seem to be what it is. =P
♥ You must not blame your pet for whatever he/she tells me. Please please don't.

♥ A photo of your dog/cat's face. The butt might work but I'd rather not.
♥ Name of pet
♥ Questions. Maximum 5 please. Ask simple straightforward questions like favorite toy or food. Don't expect them to understand questions like "do you want to be sterilized?" -_- (Some animals don't even know if they're male or female.)
♥ Email or Facebook message me.

♥ I may not be able to connect. But I will keep trying.
♥ I make mistakes. Be gentle with your words. :)
♥ It is possible that your pet does not want to talk to me. I'm not going to force.
♥ I supposedly have an affinity with cats but I find that I work better with dogs. Nevertheless, let me try.
♥ I prefer not to connect with deceased pets. Not yet.

So if you are willing to help me out here, or know anyone who does, please do contact me. TIA! :)

First visit to VivoCity

Yesterday we brought Popo to VivoCity for the first time! Have been procrastinating for several months. For those of you wanting to bring your pets there too, it is allowed! I had in fact emailed the management some time back, and was told that pets are allowed in VivoCity as long as they do not touch the floor. Here's their official response:

Although however, during our conversation she did mention that the pet has to be in a bag and not hand-carried. And I would have to "try to hide it". Defeated the purpose of being pet-friendly, but since it wasn't in the official reply, I didn't bother trying to hide her. 

I also brought up the topic of a friend getting chased out by the security guard, and she mentioned that sometimes the guards have to "do something" if a non-dog lover complains about seeing a dog there. I think it's really unfair. Since it's pet-friendly, we have a right to be there too. So to all non dog lovers, keep your ass out of VivoCity.

Anyway, we did enter via Lobby G (just because we found a lot outside the lobby) and went straight up to Pet Safari. Popo's head was sticking out of her bag and many people saw her. I would say I saw more smiles than frowns. =)

Explored Pet Safari with ease. And got super tempted to get a stroller. No I didn't, but I WILL have one. Someday.

Daiso isn't pet-friendly (got sign at the entrance). Just so you know. So we headed downstairs. Her head was still out by the way. We went into Challenger. The staff saw her. No problem. Went into this shop with small boxes. Also no problem. Samsung and Apple too. We did make it a point to look for 'No Pets' signs before entering though.

We didn't explore much cos first, the crowd was giving me a headache. Second, Popo was heavy. Third, it was dinnertime and we were hungry. I had also forgotten to bring water out for her. So guess where we went? GIANT! Yes the supermarket!

Was quite apprehensive although we couldn't see a 'No Pets' sign. But the staff saw her and didn't say anything. People saw her and didn't complain. We even went to the food sections! Wish we went earlier so we could have more time to shop around. Boo.

I don't expect the restaurants to be pet-friendly, so we just dabao-ed out to the Boardwalk. There was a bazaar there, and very crowded. Let Popo out to walk and I would say she got quite some attention. All positive the way I see it. Lol. She saw the sunset for the first time (I think) too.

Singapore needs to be more pet-friendly. Having a pet is already so expensive, it would certainly help if we weren't restricted to expensive pet cafes and pet taxis. It means a lot to have our pets out spending the day with us you know? Tsk.
