Do Charcoal Teeth Whitening Powders Work?
I've read some of the reviews on the website; someone even said they've seen a difference within a week of using it!
To use, you supposed to put some in your palm, wet your tooth brush, dip it in the powder and brush your teeth with what sticks on it.
Well, funnily enough, due to the light in the room being much brighter in the before shot, my teeth even look a bit whiter than the after shot. It's not. It's the same colour. It unfortunately did not work for me. Or for my boyfriend. I asked him to start using it the same time I did, so I can see results on two different person. I'm really sad and disappointed about it, but maybe it's just us. We both used it for about a month, but other than our teeth feeling lovely and clean, we didn't see any change in colour.
The powder contains some mint, which I could taste slightly, but I felt like I needed to use mouth wash to really freshen my breath. So overall I wasn't a happy customer sadly. It did leave my teeth feeling and looking clean, it's just that I had very high hopes to achieve whiter teeth which did not happen at the end. I will continue using it tho', since I'm not even half way through my jar. I'm beginning to think maybe I just haven't used it long enough, so I'll give you an update at the end of this post in case anything changes, and please do let me know if you have different results.
This was of course only one very popular brand we’ve tried, so not saying all Charcoal products will fail to whiten, but this one did sadly. For me. You may of course have a different experience. Also, please do let me know if there are any other brands any of our lovely readers could possibly recommend for me, I'm still desperately trying to go all natural with my teeth whitening! :)
