Big Green Smile Product Review

Big Green Smile Products Review


A few weeks ago I was asked if I would like to try out some products from Big Green Smile website.

Big Green Smile sell natural and organic products from make-up to cleaners to baby food.

I chose 3 products. Green peoples' mandarin child's toothpaste £3.50, Method Minnie Mouse Shampoo & Body wash £5.00 and Attitude Eco-kids bubble bath £7.99

Big green smile mandarin toothpaste review

The mandarin toothpaste priced at £3.50 for 50mls was a hit with my two youngest kids. I normally buy them strawberry flavoured toothpaste as they don't like mint. They really liked this one and i would buy it again. The only thing that worried me is that it has no fluoride in at all and I was told by my dentist to always use a toothpaste on my kids with at least 1000mg in it. So this is something I am going to look into. The product description reads:

"This natural toothpaste is made without Fluoride, SLS, Triclosan, Sorbitol, Parabens, phthalates, artificial sweeteners, petrochemicals and colourants to bring you the purest children's toothpaste that nature can offer."


The Bubble Bath I thought was priced quite high, so I thought it would be really good. The product description reads :

"Why expose your children to products containing carcinogen 1,4-dioxane or ethylene oxide? Day after day; year after year? No thanks because their body absorbs what we apply to it. Clean your children with all-natural, uncontaminated ingredients of Attitude Eco-Kids body care products, so your kids can be clean inside & out!"


I have never really given much thought to what was actually in my kids bubble bath, So when I read this I was a bit shocked that some products have harmful ingredients in them. So I was really happy to try this. But when we did I was a little disappointed. It didn't really make that much bubbles and they quickly dispersed. There was no smell to it either, which I would have preferred and for the price of £7.99. I don't thinks it's worth the money. But I will definitely be looking into what goes in my normal kids bubble bath and will be on the look out for a more natural one.

The Method Minnie Mouse Shampoo & body wash is priced at £5.00 for 532ml. I still think this is a bit on the high side price wise, but I think I would pay this as the product is a two-in-one. The smell was of strawberries and really nice. My little girl loves the bottle and the tear free formula. The product description reads :

"Let Mickey and Minnie take care of bath time with our gentle moisturizing 2-in-1 shampoo + body wash. The naturally derived, hypoallergenic formula is free of dirty ingredients, including parabens, phthalates or EDTA, for oodles of tear-free fun in the tub for kids and kids-at-heart."

I really liked the minnie mouse shampoo & body wash and the mandarin toothpaste and so did the kids, Think I will definitely be buying them again.

Regis Stone Non-Stick Breakfast Challenge

regis stone frying pan


I was asked to take part in the Regis Stone Non-Stick Breakfast challenge. The challenge was to create a healthy fried breakfast using the Regis Stone frying pan.

We received the 24cm pan priced at £24.99 from JML Regis Store. you can also get this pan in a 20cm and 28cm sizes.

This pan is extra strong and durable and is scratch resistant. The coating on the pan is non-stick so you can cook without using oil. The pans are suitable for use on gas, induction, electric and ceramic hobs.


Has I am a vegetarian I used Quorn sausages and has they have no fat in like real sausages I added a bit of oil to the pan to help them cook better. They cooked really well and quite fast too and to be honest I think they would have cooked just as good with no oil in at all.

quorn sausages

For my perfect healthy vegetarian fried breakfast I made sausages, scrambled eggs, hash browns, baked beans, mushrooms and a slice of toast using wholemeal bread.

healthy vegetarian fried breakfast

Me, my husband and 3 kids all had this for breakfast last Monday when it was the bank holiday. It was delicious and the perfect way to start a bank holiday and we had a lovely day spending time together and watching family films

I received the pan in return for this post. all opinions are mine and 100% honest
