Wowe Lifestyle Metal Tongue Scraper – Product Review

February’s installment in my Natural Lifestyle Tips series is another amazing product review from Wowe Lifestyle! This one is focused on lower waste oral hygiene tools.

When I was a kid, I had terrible oral hygiene. For some reason, my dental checkups were always great despite my terrible oral hygiene. When I hit college, I improved my oral hygiene dramatically. Unfortunately, something also changed in my oral chemistry around that time, and my checkups stopped being as great as I wanted them to be.

Since the shift, I do whatever I can to help my oral hygiene in easy ways, and hopefully with a low environmental cost. One of the tools my dentist recommended to me was a tongue scraper. He gave me a flimsy plastic tool with teeth on each side. This plastic tongue scraper was [obviously] plastic, and designed to be disposable (though you could reuse it for a while before you needed to replace it). I also have a sensitive tongue, so I hated how rough the teeth made it. Using that tongue scraper was an awful experience, and I thought the entire experience could be dramatically improved.

When Wowe Lifestyle reached out to me about testing some of their products, I instantly gravitated towards their tongue cleaners/scrapers! They have two kinds, copper and stainless steel. They have smooth sides, are made from metal (not plastic), and are designed to last a lifetime. Wowe Lifestyle also has other oral hygiene products that I did not review, but are perfect if you want to reduce your environmental impact. If you use a manual toothbrush, take a look at their bamboo toothbrushes as an environmentally friendly replacement for your plastic one!

Now, on to the review of the tongue scrapers!

Self-Care Challenge: Boring Self-Care

Lately, I’ve been feeling less and less like myself. With everything going on in my life, my self-care routines have been abandoned – which has created this empty “not me” shell. I’ve still been helping support Izzy and her family (posts 1 & 2), recovering from my arm surgery (posts 1, 2, & 3), and then the general life busyness intensified.

Self-care is different for everyone. Some people go all out and spend an entire day in a spa or go on a full vacation to relax. Some people don’t like those things (my mom hates being touched by strangers so massages/manicures/pedicures are torture for her), or can’t afford them, which is fine. Other’s with limited funds or resources may do spa days at home (I created some luxurious bath bombs for use at home, and they were quite a bit cheaper than the ones you can buy), or choose to take a staycation. And then there is the amazing #BoringSelfCare movement, which I absolutely love!

Or maybe taking a break in the grass is your idea of self-care!
