I love the Essex smile. The bright white, pearly teeth, shiny like diamonds in the mouth and a flash of red lipstick.
Unfortunately the only way the celebs can get their nashers so brilliantly white is via veneers or harmful chemicals and processes. I would not like either of these treatments therefore I try have been searching for the best high street teeth whitening product around. This month I have been using activated charcoal!
No, I didn’t get a lump of coal for Christmas! This new product is powdered charcoal used for teeth whitening. Activated charcoal is also known as activated carbon. It is a naturally absorbing product that is a great holistic alternative to harsh and man mad chemicals. It has been used for everything from facials to hangover cures.
Procoal charcoal is 100% natural, bonus! It does not contain fluoride which most whitening toothpastes do. It works by absorbing stains of your teeth and absorbing bacteria in your mouth leaving it fresh.
When I opened the tub I was shocked at how dark the powder is. A little alarming as this was going straight on my teeth to make them whiter!
You simply take a little bit of the powder and apply to your toothbrush and clean your teeth as usual. Be warned it can get messy and it is advisable to utilise the lid of the tub. You only need a little powder to cover the top of wet toothbrush bristles and you can use it up to 5 times a week. Do not expect the product to foam either, as it is totally natural and no added properties.
It is an unusual means of cleaning your teeth but I have been impressed. I used for one week and noticed a difference and I will definitely be using it again and ordering more. It’s an affordable and non-harmful means of whitening my teeth. I have sensitive teeth and this product did not affect them at all.
One drawback is that if you have ‘gappy’ teeth like mine you might need to floss after you brush your teeth to remove any residue. I found the less powder I used the less it got stuck in my teeth and gaps. So it is a matter of trial and error until you get the right amount.
100% natural, 100% for ease of use and 100% recommended by me!
