ToothWave Radiofrequency Toothbrush by Silk'n | Game Changing Oral Care

I have been fairly lucky when it comes to my teeth and have had very few issues with them (*knocks on wood). Although I do take care of my teeth by brushing and flossing twice a day, I am embarrassed to admit that I have failed to make it to the dentist for a cleaning for quite a few years now, and it was really starting to show! I could feel the plaque and tartar on my teeth and they had certainly yellowed. I really do need to make it to the dentist when I feel comfortable to do so, but in the meantime, I have been using this new ToothWave radiofrequency toothbrush by Silk'n and it has been a game-changer for me!

I never thought I'd be so excited about an oral care product, but I am! After the very first use of the ToothWave, my teeth felt so smooth and clean, as if I actually went to the dentist for a cleaning. I've always used an electric toothbrush, but this Toothwave toothbrush has blown my old electric toothbrush out of the water and I am in awe as the tartar on my teeth is no match for the ToothWave!

What is the ToothWave?

First unveiled at the 2020 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, ToothWave has since been cleared for use by various regulation authorities worldwide.

From ToothWave:

"Powered by DentalRF® technology, ToothWave is the 1st toothbrush to use DentalRF technology, and is clinically proven to REDUCE EXISTING TARTAR!

DentalRF technology by Silk’n is the first dental care concept to recognize that brushing, as efficient as it may be, cannot break the strong molecular bonds that tie impurities to the teeth’s surface. Instead, by harnessing the power of well-known electro-chemical principles, DentalRF technology now lifts daily oral hygiene to new heights.

ToothWave is clinically proven* to:
  • Reduce gum inflammation and bleeding
  • Reduce teeth stains
  • Brighten teeth
  • Reduce existing Tartar
* In controlled clinical studies, ToothWave has shown to reduce gingivitis by 45%, reduce gum bleeding by 35%, provide 2 shades teeth whitening, 37% reduction of stains and 2.6% existing tartar reduction within 6 weeks."

The ToothWave comes with 2 different sized toothbrush heads. Both are made of soft bristles and are gentle and nonabrasive on both teeth and gums. It safely provides whitening without the chemical erosion. Despite being gentle, it's very powerful at breaking up and removing both stains and tartar. 

The brush has slow, medium, and fast vibration settings to choose from.  At its highest vibration speed (recommended) it makes up to 48,000 vibrating brush strokes per minute. The brush also has a timer and will shut off automatically after 2 minutes. It's recommended to go over each tooth in circular motions until the timer shuts the unit off, and then go over the chewing surface of each tooth.

The ToothWave comes with a nice-looking and sturdy base for charging as well as a USB cable and adapter so it can plug into a regular wall outlet. Once fully charged, the ToothWave will work for up to 2 weeks with regular use (twice a day for 2 minutes).

The ToothWave is also waterproof and is suitable for use under the shower or while taking a bath. πŸ’¦

It is recommended to change the brush head every 3 months or sooner if the brush head becomes worn.

π—¦π—”π—™π—˜, π—šπ—˜π—‘π—§π—Ÿπ—˜ & 𝗑𝗒𝗑𝗔𝗕π—₯π—”π—¦π—œπ—©π—˜ - Other toothbrushes work mechanically, and rely on hard enough bristles to sweep away impurities. But with DentalRF® technology, ToothWave's electrochemical mechanism of action reduces the most stubborn impurities even with soft or extra-soft bristles. ToothWave is gentle and nonabrasive to both teeth enamel and gums. Safe with implants, fillings, and braces

π—œπ—‘π—§π—˜π—‘π——π—˜π—— π—¨π—¦π—˜ – According to Health Canada: “ToothWave is intended for daily oral hygiene, including plaque removal, calculus reduction, and the prevention and reduction of gingivitis. The device is also intended for the removal of teeth discoloration, stains, plaque, and tartar (calculus).” 

Although I was skeptical, ToothWave has proven itself to me. It is hands-down the most effective yet gentle oral hygiene product that I've ever used. My teeth look and feel better than ever. They are so clean and feel so smooth since the tartar is being removed, and my teeth are getting whiter and brighter every day (there is something to be said for a clean white smile having an antiaging effect). I will NOT be going back to my old electric toothbrush and could probably avoid going to the dentist too, although I don't really recommend the latter. πŸ˜‰

I do recommend checking out the amazing before and after pictures on ToothWave's website. They are pretty amazing and speak for themselves. 

You can purchase the ToothWave here. The retail price is $349CAD (they also offer Afterpay) which is truly a bargain for what you'll be saving in the long run!


Do not use ToothWave on children below the age of 18. Supervision recommended when used by persons with special needs. Do not use ToothWave if you are pregnant, nursing, have an active implant, have any medical condition related to the immune system or to cancer, (for details and for more contraindications please refer to the User Manual).

The ToothWave was kindly gifted for review consideration. All opinions are our own.

Weekly Favourite | Fabric Shaver - Revive Your Clothes!

Happy Easter, everyone! 🐣 

Welcome to this week's "Weekly Favourite" post. 

This week, the standout product has been this fabulous fabric shaver. 

I had a fabric shaver back in high school but haven't used one in eons. I remembered how handy it came in to make my clothes look new again and give them a second life. Then, I came across this Lintek shaver at Dollarama for only $4, so I had to pick it up! You can get a similar one online for around $7.

I wasn't sure how well it would work because of the low price tag. It states on the packaging that it has 3 blades and takes 2 AA batteries, so it sounded good to me. I tried it as soon as I got home and it worked like a charm at removing lint balls/pilling from my clothing. It worked so quickly and easily to make my clothes look new again. 

Whether you want to revive some old clothes and save them from ending up in landfills, or maybe you are selling on apps like Poshmark, this fabric shaver is a must-have!

Lintek trip blade fabric shaver comes packaged as shown above. You will need to purchase 2 AA batteries as it doesn't come with them.

There are 2 compartments on the bottom; one for catching the lint and one for the batteries. There is also a single switch to turn the unit on and off.

Pop in 2 AA batteries and you're ready to go!

Built-in lint catcher

Below is a favourite hoodie of mine that I've used to demonstrate how well the fabric shaver removes the pilling from the garment.

Pilling is gone! Note: top is not dirty, it's blue and grey tie dye ;)

Watch the shaver in action. You can hear when it's shaving the pilling off.

I'm seriously kicking myself for going all these years without a fabric shaver! Now, I can save my favourite clothes and wear them longer. If you are a clothing reseller on platforms like Poshmark, you definitely need one of these to make any used clothing look new again. Side Note- If you are new to Poshmark, you can get $15 off your first order by using "poshsummergirl" as the code on the signup page linked here

You can find a similar fabric shaver for purchase online here

See you next week with our next favourite!

Weekly Favourite | Youth to the People 15% Vitamin C + Caffeine Energy Serum Review

Welcome to another installment of our Weekly Favourite! 

This week, I'm featuring Youth to the People's 15% Vitamin C + Caffeine Energy Serum. - SRP $68 USD/ 1oz.

I've been a huge fan of Vitamin C for the skin for as long as I can remember. Unfortunately, I had gotten away from using it because I'm always trying out new skincare. I was planning on incorporating a Vitamin C serum back into my skincare routine and that's when Youth to the People's (YTTP) 15% Vitamin C + Caffeine Energy Serum landed on my desk- Talk about manifestation! I was so happy to begin using a vitamin C serum again as it a very powerful antioxidant and well known for its benefits with brightening the skin, lessening hyperpigmentation, and even building collagen in the skin.

I often hear dermatologists recommend Retin-A, sunscreen + a good moisturizer, and vitamin C for the skin. Using that as my basis for my new skincare routine, I added peptides to the mix because I'm a huge fan of them. After a bit of research, making sure that I wasn't using products that would cancel each other out, I came up with the following routine:

Cleanse, tone, YTTP Vitamin C + Caffeine Serum, sunscreen

Cleanse, tone, Retin-A, peptides, night cream

I've been following this regime for almost 3 weeks now and my skin and I are loving it!

About my skin type: Aging (over 50), combo, dehydrated, acne-prone, melasma.

BENEFITS (Taken from YTTP):
  • Ultra-stable 15% vitamin C
  • Non-irritating + great for sensitive skin
  • Fragrance-free + fresh scent from plant extracts
  • Lightweight + fast absorbing
  • Blends well + never sticky

15% Vitamin C Complex: Three powerful sources of vitamin c are combined in our pro-grade formula—Ethyl Ascorbic Acid, Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate (THD Ascorbate), and Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate—for maximum efficacy and stability.

Yerba Mate + Guayusa: Naturally high in caffeine, this superleaf-derived extract enhances microcirculation to reduce morning puffiness.

Passion Fruit: High in antioxidants, helps scavenge for free radicals.

Dragon Fruit:
Promotes skin health and replenishes essential moisture.

Squalane: An emollient that provides weightless hydration, locking in moisture.

  • No added fragrance 
  • 100% vegan ingredients
  • Premium superfood extracts
  • Recyclable packaging
  • Made in USA
  • No animal testing
  • No dimethicone
  • No parabens
  • No phthalates
  • No sulfates
  • No PEGs
The serum has a beautiful slip to it, it spreads easily and my skin drinks it up. I only need 2 pumps out of the 2-4 that is recommended, which means it will last for quite a while. I apply the serum to my face and neck, as well as my eye area. YTTP's website states that it is Ophthalmologist tested so it is safe for the eye area. 

After the first use, I noticed a difference in how my skin looked, so it does have some immediate effects. My skin looked brighter, fresher, and had a healthy glow. After a few weeks, I notice my skin looking smoother, more even-toned, brighter, fresher, and younger overall. My skin also feels firmer to the touch. I also notice less puffiness around my eyes.

I am so glad that I decided to incorporate this serum into my skincare regime. I'm much happier with how my skin looks and I look forward to using it every morning. I have reactive skin and some vitamin C serums make me breakout. Luckily, I haven't had any reaction or breakouts whatsoever with this YTTP serum. I am looking forward to seeing further improvements as I continue to use this wonderful serum!

Weekly Favourite | Urban Butterfly Nail Polish Bottle Holder

Happy Sunday and welcome to week 3 of our Weekly Favourites series. πŸŽ‰

This week, the standout item of the week is this wearable nail polish bottle holder

When I first spotted it in my local dollar store, I thought maybe it was just another gimmick, but it was such a good price that I had to try it for myself. 

Whenever I paint my nails, it's a bit of a pain as I am always fumbling with the nail polish bottle. I usually pin the nail polish bottle between 2 books to try and keep it in place but inevitably, the bottle gets knocked over now and then and sometimes spills the polish onto something. It's pretty frustrating and makes me dread painting my nails. 

I was pretty excited to possibly have a solution to my nail polish woes. Once I got home I had to try it out right away. It's made of a rubber/silicone material and is quite flexible. It has an opening on the top that can fit pretty much any shape or size bottle and had 2 rubber tabs to easily take the bottle holder on and off without the worry of smudging your nail polish.

The brand at my dollar store is Urban Butterfly but there are other brands available online

Above: Top of the holder where you'll place the nail polish bottle. Fits both round and square bottles with the flexible opening. 

Fits comfortably on my ring and middle finger.

Tabs on the sides make it easy to take on and off.

Make sure to keep your hand flat on a surface while painting your nails. Remember not to lift that hand while the bottle is opened. I made that mistake once the first time I used it since I wasn't used to it yet. Luckily, nothing spilled, and I haven't made that mistake again since. 

The bottle holder stays in place nicely and makes painting my nails a breeze!!

These are the tabs that you want to press to open the finger rings to place on and off your fingers. This way, there is no chance of ruining your freshly painted manicure, you don't even have to wait for the polish to dry thanks to this little detail (it prevents you from having to slide it on and off).

This little gem that I thought might have been a gimmick is a game-changing product! I no longer dread painting my nails and it makes painting them SO much quicker and easier! Plus, no worries of spills anymore. It seems like something that will last for a long time, too!

I purchased it at my local Dollarama but found the same product online if you can't find it at your local dollar store. It is worth its weight in gold! 

Nail polish shown is Sinful Colors in the shade Spring Fling (dupe for OPI Don’t Bossa Nova Me Around).

Have a great week ahead!
