Charcoal Whitening: Is Black The New Bleach?
I’ve tried so many whitening toothpastes and whitening strips in my quest to end up with perfectly pearly whites. Unfortunately, most of those products either make my teeth super sensitive or just don’t work.
While scrolling on social media, I stumbled upon one of those "miracle" products that you’ve never heard of and only pop up on Facebook ads. But, of course, I watched the video and was immediately intrigued by this tar-looking toothpaste that supposedly whitens teeth.
I looked down in the comment section and saw tons of positive feedback. Plus, the brand seems to regularly respond to a large number of customer questions and concerns, which is pretty promising, right?
Now, I can tell you that even if this product hadn’t have worked, the process of using something black to scrub your teeth is so hilarious to look at and oddly satisfying on its own. I gently dipped my wet toothbrush into the black powder and scrubbed for five minutes, as directed.
To say that it was a little messy would be a bit of an understatement. Do NOT wear a white shirt while using this product and spit carefully into the sink once finished.
After my timer went off and I rinsed out all the black charcoal mess, I was so pleasantly surprised by how white my teeth were already! It was actually pretty close to the miracle that the Facebook ad promised.
The second day, I did the process but for a bit of a shorter time. (Is it just me or is it hard not to drool while brushing for five straight minutes?) Again, I saw beautiful results and my teeth were whiter than they may have ever been.
Unfortunately, I did not originally plan to review this product, so I don’t have a crazy before and after photo to show you. The Blk Diamond Facebook page has plenty of photos and videos to see before and afters, if you’re just as curious as I was.
Oh and be sure to run this product by your dentist, just to get their take.
What do you do to keep your teeth white? I’d love to know!
