A Party Ready Smile: Carbon Coco

We all know how important it is to look after our gnashers, and I put mine through a lot. I drink a considerable amount of black tea and have a rather sweet tooth, so I am very conscious of having a good teeth cleaning routine.

The black tea does absolutely no favours for my pearly whites, much to my dentist's dismay. Because of this, I like to try and ensure my toothpaste is not only beneficial in removing plaque, but also effective at lifting surface stains.

This is where Carbon Coco has come to my rescue. I was kindly sent one of their best selling 'Ultimate Carbon Kits', consisting of a tub of their activated charcoal polish, a tube of of activated charcoal toothpaste, and a toothbrush with bamboo bristles.

The Carbon Coco range isn't like any other activated charcoal toothpaste on the market. It is made from finely milled organic coconut activated charcoal, with a hint of bentonite clay, and lemon myrtle.

If you are slighlty unsure of how a pitch black powder can help to whiten teeth, you aren't alone. I too was sceptical, but apparently it naturally detoxifies and lifts surface stains. This kit has two steps to it, firstly you use the black, tasteless powder to brush your teeth for 2 minutes, then you rinse and follow up with the fluoride free toothpaste for a further two minutes.

I was quite surprised at just how dark the powder was, especially when I couldn't see my teeth. Plus, a little goes an extremely long way, and I had to be extra careful not to scatter it all around the sink. I looked like something out of a horror movie, I am just glad the postman didn't ring the doorbell mid-brush. I then followed it up with the toothpaste, which is much more pleasant with a fresh, minty taste.

It took me a while to get all of the black from between my teeth, so I probably wouldn't use these products in the morning as it's not great if you're in a rush. Plus, you may need to clean round your sink afterwards, as it can get quite messy. However, I am beginning to notice a difference after using this for a number of days. I'd say with consistent use I'll have beautifully bright teeth worthy of being on a toothpaste billboard, just in time for the party season!
