A few weeks ago the company Carbon Coco contacted me to review their Ultimate Carbon Kit* that contains their popular Activated Charcoal Tooth Polish, Activated Charcoal Toothpaste, Bamboo Bristled Toothbrush, Tongue Cleaner, and Satin Pouch. I have been having my own oral health struggles for a bit, and have actually have been eyeing their products for quite a while on Instagram and Facebook, so the opportunity to test out and review these products could not have come at a better time!
“Made from 100% certified organic coconut shell charcoal, Carbon Coco not only brightens your smile, but also improves your overall mouth health. Our medical grade activated charcoal powder removes toxins, stains, and plaque from your teeth through a process called adsorption, in which activated charcoal binds with these particles and flushes them out of your teeth and mouth. The super finely milled polish won’t damage your enamel or gums and also contains bentonite clay, a natural ingredient that helps remineralise teeth plus a hint of lemon myrtle, which has gentle and non-acidic antibacterial properties.”
I have been using the products for two weeks, day and night. They claim that results will be seen in 7-14 days, and I wanted to really put it to the test to see if it works. Please be sure to read the additional information to fully understand how this product worked for me, and how it may benefit your oral health.
I’m pretty stubborn when it comes to sales clerks giving me recommendations. ESPECIALLY when I don’t ask for help. However, I was convinced to try this product because the cheap Italy Towel I have been using to scrub my face away was making me look… worn. I opted for the advice of the nice Korean lady in charge of the beauty booth at the P.A.T. Market and got a way gentler exfoliant to try (after trying samples).
My mother was gifted the Foreo Espada Acne-Clearing Blue Light Pen from a friend. In return, she was kind enough to let me use it, since I am the most (acne) problem child out of the bunch. I am familiar with Colour Light Therapy and have tried Red light myself. Blue light however is supposed to be more up the alley of acne-related issues!
While writing this post, I took the time to really understand how Colour Light Therapy works. I try to sum it up my findings to share with you. So please read the disclaimer before reading the full post.
