In all honesty, I'm very picky about mouthwash. I like Listerine—or more accurately, generic Listerine that comes from Dollar Tree. If it doesn't burn my mouth like crazy, I'm highly skeptical of its antiseptic and breath-freshening abilities. I'm not saying my breath wasn't minty after using Trader Joe's Mouth Wash. But it left an odd aftertaste long after I rinsed and brushed my teeth.

The soap had a faintly sweet odor. I thought it was reminiscent of oatmeal soap with a hint of honey. It left Sonia's skin silky smooth. I didn't feel like it made much of a difference on mine. Another interesting property of the soap: it dried off very quickly. Other soaps remain slippery and slimy for a long while after being wet. This soap felt oddly drained just moments after being wet—still waxy and smooth, but with a complete lack of that slippery slime.

For Sonia's thoughts, check out the short video below.

Bottom line: Camel Milk Soap with Olive Oil and Honey: 7 out of 10.
Bottom line: Mouth Wash with Tea Tree Oil & Cool Mint: 6 out of 10.


  1. I love the mouthwash. For anyone that uses JASON mouthwash or any other natural, cruelty-free mouthwashes, this is great because it's less than half the price of the other brands available. It could taste strange to those not using natural products. When I first converted over to natural products, it was an adjustment.

  2. The camel soap smells like a zoo, and tbe "natural" mouthwash contains ploysorbate 80.

    1. EWG has polysorbate-80 listed as a low health concern. It states, "Classified as not expected to be potentially toxic or harmful," and "Not suspected to be an environmental toxin." Do you have other info and sources? Thank you.

  3. Love the idea of reviews of non-food products!!
