Has the distinct flavor of hard-boiled eggs, as expected otherwise.
on July 18, 2018
I've been using a charcoal toothpaste for about a month, and thought I'd add an actual charcoal powder to my whitening regime. I saw this while looking, and purchased it because it had a little mint flavoring to it and some good reviews. Here's the weird part: it doesn't taste or smell minty in the least, but it does taste and smell like hard-boiled eggs. Odd. I wasn't expecting that, and even after using it for several days, I'm *still* not used to it. It isn't bad enough to prevent me from using the product, but I've found myself doing things in an attempt to circumvent that very distinct taste (for instance, wetting my toothbrush with a mouthwash rather than water to get a little minty flavor in the mix). It's too soon for me to notice much of a difference with whitening yet, but the odd flavor required a heads up to anyone who may be purchasing after me.
It is exactly as I'd expected in every other respect. The powder is very fine and sticks to everything, so be careful where and how you open it, how you dip your toothbrush, where you spit, and have something on hand to clean up messes if you have bad aim. You would be astounded at how quickly just a small amount of this stuff can travel and the damage it can do.
Again, the flavor isn't bad enough to prevent me from using the product, but it tastes distinctly like hard-boiled eggs and has zero trace of mint anything. Breakfast, anyone??? ;)
