Renewed faith in reviewers because of this stuff
on July 6, 2016
Okay, I don't know about you, but I'm a pretty skeptical review-reader and Amazon purchaser. When I see a product like this that's kinda weird and it doesn't have a LOT of reviews, but they're all positive, I tend to assume that any of the non-veeified purchases are fake reviews.
I have really sensitive teeth, and normal whitening products make my mouth SO sore, and I find leaving them on for 20 – 40 minutes (depending on the type) really inconvenient. Plus they're stupidly expensive.
So I figured "why not?" I'll buy the weird charcoal mouth powder. It's cheap, so worst case scenario I get to laugh at my boyfriend when I make him try it. Win-win.
So I used it for the first time today, and I have renewed hope and optimism in life! This stuff is amazing. I put a little on my wet sonic toothbrush and just brushed like I normally would with toothpaste. Took a bit longer to rinse my mouth, toothbrush, and sink, but who cares? It's not a 20-minute strip of bleach and cling wrap on your teeth.
So I finally let myself check in the mirror, and holy s***! My teeth are already visibly whiter. I'm blown away. It seriously is more noticeable than one treatment of any whitening strip I've ever used. I unfortunately did not take a before pic, so I know seeing my teeth isn't very helpful, but I drink a LOT of coffee, and this actually is a noticeable improvement for me (I know, I know, for shame).
Anyway, if you too are a skeptical purchaser, from one cynic to another: this stuff is actually great.
• a little goes a long way: this tub will probably last me a year
• quick: no longer than normal brushing
• effective: whiter teeth after one application
• taste: slightly minty, not at all chalky like I expected
• after taste: may want to follow with mouthwash or a tiny quick pass of toothpaste if you want a better after taste
