Carbon Coco Review

Anyone who knows me knows that one of the things I'm most self conscious about is my teeth. As someone who constantly has a coffee in hand, my teeth have never been the porcelain white color you see in commercials. This is always something I become increasingly aware of when summer rolls around and my schedule is full of BBQs and days spent at the beach. I obviously want my teeth to look white for pictures, and Carbon Coco's products saved me just in time for the summer heat. 

Okay, let's get the business stuff out of the way at the start. Yes, the Carbon Coco charcoal powder and toothpaste was sent to me. However, as always, all of my opinions are my own. I do not post about products unless I believe in them – trust me! I was sent the "Ultimate Carbon Kit" which is on sale right now for $44.95, and compared to other products like Crest White Stripes, this is a good deal.

The great thing about Carbon Coco's products is you see results almost immediately. After my second time using them, I noticed my teeth were already whiter. I'm super impatient, so seeing results so quickly kept me on track with the product. The key thing about Carbon Coco is they use activated charcoal to whiten your teeth – an all-natural and organic alternative to other items on the market. I used both the "Activated Charcoal Tooth Polish" and the "Activated Charcoal Toothpaste." When I saw that the tooth polish was a loose charcoal powder, my first reaction was "this is going to taste so bad," but it didn't! It actually didn't taste like anything at all. The toothpaste, on the other hand, had a nice mint flavor which I personally love.

So, why do you need both a powder and toothpaste? The whitening process with Carbon Coco is two-step – you first brush with the powder and then with the toothpaste. The powder helps start the process of removing stains, while the toothpaste helps to fight things like plaque, gingivitis and bad breath.

Though I really do love this product, there are two minor drawbacks that I think you should be aware of when purchasing this product. First, you'll notice immediately that the charcoal powder is pitch black. While it will still whiten your teeth, it sometimes did leave some black residue around my gums even after rinsing. It goes away almost immediately after flossing, but make sure you take a second look at yourself in the mirror before running out of the house! Secondly, since the powder is black, it seems to splash everywhere, leaving behind black dots all over the sink. I'm a pretty clean person, and even when being careful I got little drops of black all over the place. It's not a big deal and immediately wipes off your sink, but just make sure you don't wear a white t-shirt! These are both minor issues, but they are something to be aware of when you start using these products.

With these things in mind, I will still be restocking Carbon Coco's products when I run out – I truly believe in the brand and the results are clear, so it's worth a little mess.
