We all know that charcoal teeth whitening has recently become all the rage on social media. I’ve seen so many Instagram posts and been totally intrigued, so when Carbon Coco reached out and offered to let me try their Ultimate Carbon Kit, I couldn’t wait.
Inside the package was charcoal powder, activated charcoal toothpaste, and to my surprise, a cute teal toothbrush.
The whole process was extremely easy. First, you wet the toothbrush and dip it lightly into the charcoal powder. Using the powder, brush for 3 minutes and then rise. Immediately after, brush with the activated charcoal toothpaste for another 3 minutes.
Yes, your mouth will turn black, but it doesn’t last! the powder is a tad chalky, but the toothpaste gets rid of that right away.
What I liked
The whole system was a total surprise to me. I love that it came with a very soft bristled toothbrush (so you don’t dirty your own!) and that the whole process is done in 6 minutes before bed. Although the powder was chalky, the toothpaste was actually amazing. It’s minty and cleans up the charcoal mess extremely well. The product size is also fantastic – there’s enough powder and toothpaste to last a very long time.
What I didn’t like
I know it’s part of the draw on the whole product, but I really wish the powder wasn’t black. I found that I had to be extremely careful during brushing or I would be left with black flecks all over my bathrooms cupboards. It’s easy to clean, just annoying.
I was super impressed with the whole system and truly believe that it whitened my teeth better than 90% of other whitening systems I’ve tried. If you’re looking for an easy, fast, and effective way to whiten your teeth, this is it!
