My first thought after I removed the bubble wrap from around the bottle of this Charcoal Teeth Whitener was, "Dang, that's heavy!" For a little glass bottle of very finely ground coconut charcoal that is one heavy little jar!! My second thought when I unscrewed the lid was, "Come on. You have got to be kidding me! You expect me to brush my teeth with something that looks like finely ground black pepper? I will never get this stuff out of my teeth!!" But, I bought it! Curiosity and all that. So I might as well give it a try!
So, I got my toothbrush damp and dipped it very lightly into the charcoal. You can see in my pics about how much charcoal that picked up on my toothbrush. Make sure you tap it off a little if your toothbrush is too dry because too much can make a mess! Anyway, so then I went to town on my teeth. I have an electric toothbrush which I think helped in this situation.
If you've ever brushed your teeth with baking soda that's about what this feels like. But it's black. And it looks a bit weird! Actually, the granules are even finer than baking soda! It tastes ok though because it has no real taste. It has mint in it but to me the only evidence of the mint was some coolness on my lips. It feels a little gritty but I liked it. Like I knew it was working to remove the stains and I think now I am going to continue this 30 day experiment to see what I look like in 30 days! So I will update this review in a month or so because if I have this much of a difference in one use I can only imagine the difference in a month!!! I can say that my teeth feel polished. Like I just left the dentist's office! I do like the way it feels! I have sensitive teeth and gums and I haven't felt any sensitivity issues with this whitener like I have with all of the others I have tried. That's a HUGE bonus for me!! My teeth feel normal, just really really clean! My husband saw the difference in my before and after pictures and he went straight to the bathroom to give it a try for himself. So, his pics are posted as well and now he's on board also! He liked it as much as I do and had zero complaints!
Bottom line: I definitely recommend this to anyone who wants whiter teeth. I would recommend this to my family without hesitation. I am also going to buy more for my teen boys who have been using Invisalign and have had their teeth get stained because of it. I love this stuff!!
