A woman has shared the moment she realised her mum had made a hilarious mistake while doing the grocery shopping.

Sharing the X-rated blunder on TikTok, the woman - named Primrose - revealed her mum "got some more toothpaste but when I was brushing my teeth last night it tasted weird."

When she took a closer look at the tube of 'toothpaste' she had grabbed, she realised her mum's epic shopping fail.

What she actually held was a tube of lubricating jelly from Boots. Definitely not toothpaste. And by the looks of the squeezed tube she wasn't the only one who had already attempted to use the lube to brush her teeth.


"Okay mum?" she captioned the clip she then shared to the popular social media site, and it's since been viewed over a million times.

“Tell me why I’m laughing so hard right now," one person responded in the comments.

"Hell no," another wrote.

While a few people admitted to having similar mishaps.

"I used hair removal cream once," one person revealed.

And another said: "I've done this with dentfix."

Luckily the mishap wasn't quite as bad as what another woman from the US faced when she ran out of hairspray.

Tessica Brown will forever be known as Gorilla Glue Girl, after using the adhesive to fix her hairstyle only to discover that her hair was now set in place.

She ended up going to hospital for help, and eventually needed surgery to help fix the mistake.
