Harry Potter Obsession.

Hey guys!

I’ve been thinking a lot about good ol’ Harry Potter recently. No, not the character, the story. I think this new obsession has stemmed from noticing an increasing number of Harry Potter themed items in Primark.

I’ve already taken the Pottermore wand, Ilvermorny house and Patronus tests, and have a Chestnut wood wand with a Unicorn Hair core 10 1/4 inch and Brittle flexibility, got into the Pukwudgie Ilvermorny house and have the White Mare patronus.

Now, I wouldn’t want to be reppin’ the wrong house, so of course, I had to take some Harry Potter House tests. Basically, they concluded that I’m a Slytherin. Slytherins are pretty epic, there’s no doubt about that, but they’re not really “me”. If any of you have taken the Pottermore House test recently, you’ll notice that not only is the quiz very different to how it used to be, but the questions also seem rather… Random? I don’t see how a lot of them would even relate to a house, and I honestly have no idea how I came out as a Slytherin. I always used to test as a Hufflepuff, and always play acted being Susan Bones when I’d play Harry Potter with my siblings.

I’m going to do a Harry Potter. My response to the sorting hat saying that I’d do well in Slytherin is “You’re Wrong!” I’m a Hufflepuff. A Slytherin would never even want to be a Hufflepuff. PLUS, if you want to get REALLY intense about the whole thing, I believe in MBTI personality types more strongly than I do the Pottermore sorting hat quiz, and each type generally corresponds to a house. In general:

Gryffindors are: ENTP, ENFP, ESTP and ESFP.

Slytherins are: ENTJ, ESTJ, ISTJ and ISFJ.

Ravenclaws are: INTP, INTJ, INFJ and ISTP.

Hufflepuffs are generally INFP, ENFJ, ISFP and ESFJ types.

See, I’m a bloomin’ Hufflepuff! How could anyone resist their cozy, sunlit common room, full of lively plants? I think if I weren’t a Hufflepuff, I sort-of wouldn’t want to be a Hufflepuff. They’re nothing outstanding, they are just pretty passive and observant, and like to keep the peace. If I were a Slytherin, surely I’d be far too ambitious, leader-oriented, competitive and insensitive to want to be a Hufflepuff? If I were a Gryffindor, surely I’d be too competitive, enjoy being in the spotlight too much and be too much of a leader to want to be a Hufflepuff? If I were a Ravenclaw, wouldn’t I be too academically orientated and too competitive to want to be a Hufflepuff?

I dunno. I’m having a little identity crisis here guys.

I think I’m a Hufflepuff.

I have the Hufflepuff socks to prove it.

From Primark obviously.

Have you taken the Pottermore House test? Which house did you get?! Do you agree with your house? If not, why not take the test real quick and comment below what you get – you just have to quickly make an account, and then answer 10 simple questions to be sorted into a house 🙂 C’mon 90’s kids, where ya’ll at?!?!

P.S. I’m a Hufflepuff, not a Slytherin.

Lush Tooth Fairy Tooth Powder Review

Tooth Fairy Tooth Powder:

Rating: 4/5*

Cons:

I don’t like the taste of this tooth powder. To me, it doesn’t taste of strawberry at all, whilst being labelled a “Strawberry Tooth Powder.” To me it tastes like sweetener, mixed with some sort of powdery tasting sweet, mixed with the taste of these teddy bear shaped multivitamins I used to have when I was a kid… This tooth powder tastes REALLY bad to me, and only has a slight, general berry flavour to it. That being said, my partner really likes the taste of this tooth powder! If you are a bit picky with flavours of toothpaste, I’d avoid this one!

This is quite a feminine tooth powder. It is called “Tooth Fairy,” is pink and sparkly, has pink packaging and is strawberry flavoured – all somewhat feminine features! This means some men might feel uncomfortable using this tooth powder, which I think sucks!

My teeth and mouth in general doesn’t always “feel” perfectly clean. I don’t know if it is because of the flavour of the tooth powder or what it is.


 

Pros:

I think the concept for this tooth powder is really cute, and may motivate little girls to brush their teeth! Children seem more tolerant of sweet tastes, so perhaps they would even enjoy the taste of this tooth powder.

This tooth powder doesn’t contain fluoride, which is something that I personally like. Some people prefer to have fluoride in their toothpaste which is completely understandable, as it is recommended by health professionals. I personally prefer a less harsh approach to keeping myself healthy, but each to their own!

This tooth powder really works. The difference in the appearance of my teeth before and after brushing with this tooth powder is definitely noticeable. Tooth Fairy makes my teeth look much more white, bright and clean. They also feel super clean to the touch after brushing.

I really like this format of toothpaste. I think it is easier to use up every last bit of product when in this format, which is something I always found difficult to do with conventional toothpaste. I also found that with the toothy tabs, sometimes I’d need to use more than one tab to properly cleanse my mouth however with tooth powders, I have extremely rarely needed to dab my brush into the powder a second time whilst brushing. I also find that tooth powder foams up much easier than both conventional toothpaste and the toothy tabs. Tooth powders last a good amount of time too! You would think that this format of toothpaste would be messy, but honestly, I’ve dropped more toothy tabs into my sink than I have spilled tooth powder.


 

Overall Conclusion:

Overall, I hated the taste of this tooth powder but everything else about it was on point. I love the whole concept of this tooth powder, and love tooth powders as a form of toothpaste in general! My favourite tasting of the three tooth powders is Ultrablast without a doubt!

I’m going to give Tooth Fairy a 4/5* rating. It worked amazingly, I just wish it tasted a little better! I do HIGHLY recommend anyone curious about Lush’s tooth powders to try Ultrablast though – absolute game changer for me!
