I’ve tried various teeth whiting toothpastes that have been rated highly but I’ve never been massively impressed with them myself.
One teeth whiting product that I’ve been very intrigued about, though, is the black charcoal teeth whiting powder.
I spotted the Activated Charcoal Natural Teeth Whitening Powder by Pro Teeth Whitening Co on Amazon and the reviews were fantastic. So, feeling optimistic I purchased one tub as it was on offer at £8.23 (it’s currently on sale for £11.99, at full price it’s £19.99).
It arrived on time and was sealed in a black tub.
It was filled to the brim with the charcoal powder and you only need to use a pinch or so of it each time you use it, so it will last a while and is good value for money in terms of amount of product and the number of uses you’d get.
Per instructions all you need to do is make your toothbrush wet and dab it in the powder and brush your teeth!
It’s a strange feeling to begin with as I’m obviously used to using regular toothpaste rather than this powdered stuff – kind of like brushing your teeth with flour or chalk! That soon subsides and feels regular again as you continue to brush.
It does require more rinsing than normal to remove all the black powder from your mouth once you’ve finished brushing. After using this, I rinse my mouth a couple of times and brush my teeth with my brush and just water to make sure there’s no residue left in my mouth.
It comes in peppermint and spearmint flavours, but to be honest I couldn’t taste anything so I wouldn’t say it leaves your mouth minty fresh like other toothpastes do.
I’m not too fussed about the lack of minty flavour, though, as the main purpose for me is for it to whiten my teeth. I know some people use the powder after they’ve used regular toothpaste so they still get the minty flavour from their toothpaste – which I may do going forward, but I really want to put this whitener to the test on it’s own first.
After the first use I couldn’t say there was any difference but I think that would have been overly ambitious – I’d expect a product like this to work gradually over a few uses(it’s not a trip to the dentist after all!)
However, three days into using this powder twice daily I’ve noticed a definite difference in my teeth – they are definitely whiter (not yet pearly white, but still noticeably whiter).
Below is a pic of my teeth currently – I literally just took the photo on my phone and cropped and uploaded to my app! Other than the cropping there’s no editing.
I wish I had a ‘before’ shot to show the difference – but I’m happy with the progress.
Overall, this is a great teeth whitening product and great value for money. I know it’s still very early days of my use of it, but there is a clear difference which I haven’t seen in other teeth whiting products (some of which cost more than this one).
If you’re looking for a teeth whiting product I would definitely recommend this!
