A couple of months ago, I was contacted by the company Carbon Coco to try and review their popular teeth whitening product. Carbon Coco is an Australian brand that aims to give everyone a healthy and natural alternative of whitening the teeth by choosing only organic and all-natural ingredients in their products.
The company was so generous to send me their Ultimate Carbon Kit and I was lucky enough to be able to try and test it. So if you guys are excited to know more about this product, then please keep on reading.
The Ultimate Carbon Kit comes with:
- Activated Charcoal Tooth Polish
- Activated Charcoal Toothpaste
- Bamboo Charcoal Toothbrush
- Carbon Coco pouch bag
- Card with complete product instruction
What is it?
Activated Charcoal Tooth Polish – Unlike the usual activated charcoal from health stores, this is made from finely milled Organic Coconut Activated Charcoal with a hint of Bentonite Clay and Lemon Myrtle. This is proven to be very gentle yet effective in detoxifying the mouth and removing stains.
Activated Charcoal Toothpaste – This is a toothpaste formula that doesn’t have fluoride. It also contains activated charcoal. The toothpaste is designed to protect your teeth from further staining throughout the day, so you won’t mess up your results if you love coffee and colored drinks.
Bamboo Charcoal Toothbrush – with specially designed bristles infused with Activated Charcoal for added cleanliness and stain removal.
How to use:
Simply dip the Bamboo Charcoal Toothbrush in the jar of Activated Charcoal Tooth Polish (tap off the excess because a little goes a long way!) brush in circles for 2-3 minutes, rinse and brush with the toothpaste. It is recommended to use the Activated Charcoal Tooth Polish at night or before bed time to give time for any residue to dislodge overnight then use the toothpaste in place of your regular toothpaste during the day.
I would be very honest here guys. I don’t have a perfect set of teeth. Mine is not white because I am a hardcore coffee drinker. I drink a cup of coffee at home and another 1-2 cups in the office. So that’ll give you an idea of how my teeth are.
Anyway, Activated Charcoal isn’t new to me, in fact I have a stock at home because this is a powerful ingredient that has lots of great benefits. It is widely being used now in soaps, skin care products and many more because of its power to remove toxins, treats acne problem and even unclog pores. And now whitens the teeth? Sounds interesting to me. My first impression while using the kit, I followed the instructions and first brushed my teeth with the Activated Charcoal Tooth Polish and it felt really unusual. It feels gross the first time! But to my surprise though, It wasn’t that bad at all but it is not my favorite step. I mean the polish is tasteless and not too rough when brushed. The grains are super fine but I guess you still have to be very gentle when you brush your teeth because it might damage or irritate your gums. Recommended is 2-3 minutes but I guess it won’t hurt if you’ll make it shorter than that especially if you have very sensitive gums. When I spit the charcoal polish out, I got black stains all over the sink so make sure you rinse everything off with water as quickly as possible, otherwise it might be hard to remove. Now, onto my favorite part, I brushed my teeth with their Activated Charcoal Toothpaste. Why is it my favorite? because I love their toothpaste! It tastes so minty and delicious. I would say it is very gentle because even though it has a minty flavor, it doesn’t hurt my gums and tongue as compared to some popular toothpaste I regularly use which gives me burning feeling.
By the way, I used the kit along with my mom. I had my mom use the bamboo toothbrush while I use my regular brush. When I received the kit, my mom was actually more excited to use the product because she really wanted to whiten and somehow strengthen her teeth so I really couldn’t say no to her. She loves it as much as I do.
Now onto the results, The first time me and my mom used it, I would say it gave us instant good results. Not drastic but you will already see the difference right after using the kit. I remembered my mom telling me her teeth become shiny and whiter. I can attest to that because I saw huge difference with her teeth after 2 weeks of using the kit. According to Carbon Coco, results will be visible within 7-14 days so imagine using this kit for much longer time. You will be surprise with the results it’ll give you. Can I just say that they even offer a money-back guarantee meaning they will refund the full payment if the customer did not get the results within 14 days. This just goes to show that they are confident about their product effectiveness. This is definitely a HIT for me!
- Safe and effective.
- All-natural and organic ingredients.
- Vegan and Cruelty-free products
- Results are already visible in less than 7 days (though this may not always be the case with other users)
- A little goes a long way especially the Activated Charcoal Tooth polish.
- No sting or gums irritation experienced.
- The toothpaste taste minty and delicious.
- Not readily available in local stores.
- Quite messy to use.
- Quite expensive but given that it is effective, it can be a value for money.
I love the Ultimate Carbon Kit and I like that it is very effective and safe to use. Even my mom loves it and she wants to continuously use it. Though I would not personally use the activated charcoal tooth polish everyday. I guess once a week is okay or when I have a special event to attend the next day or few but I would definitely use their toothpaste because it tastes delicious. All in all the Ultimate Carbon Coco is safe and yet effective in whitening the teeth. As for the price, the Ultimate Carbon Kit is quite expensive but it can also be a great deal as oppose to buying a single product from them. If you’ll check their website, this kit is actually on a discounted price from $89.95 down to $44.95 and they offer free shipping worldwide. That’s already a steal you guys!
Personally, I would say this is still a value for money because I always choose quality over quantity. So, Will I recommend it? Yes! Will I purchase? Also a yes! I’m thinking of buying the kit or their Activated Charcoal Toothpaste which is currently on sale by the way. I am a fan of their toothpaste.
That is all for today’s review. I hope you guys had fun reading as much as I did writing it. See you on my next post!
