Whiter Teeth in 2 Minutes!

Whiter Teeth in 2 Minutes!

I have very sensitive teeth. I once got them "professionally" whitened (at the mall) and I had to stop halfway through! Lately Crest Whitening strips have been my go-to product. Unfortunately, I even get sharp pain using these at home strips, and I have to space them out to every few days. They do work great, but they have to sit on your teeth for 30 minutes. So it's something you have to sort of commit to. That's 30 minutes where you can't drink a glass of wine or have a snack- LOL. They are also pretty pricey- about $40 for 40 strips. 

My sister purchased Activate Wow Teeth Whitening Charcoal Powder from Amazon for $20 after she read a ton of amazing reviews. Not only is the product all natural, but it does not cause any tooth sensitivity. It's made from coconut charcoal powder. The before and after pictures were so good I wondered if they were fake reviews!

Today she received the product and we both tried it. True to the reviews, it's pretty messy. It's literally a black powder that gets everywhere if you aren't careful, especially when opening for the first time. You wet your toothbrush then dip it in the powder. Then you brush for 2 minutes. I did not experience any sensitivity whatsoever. 

Unfortunately my before and after was not very significant because I recently used my Crest Whitening strips. But my sister's were Amazon review worthy! This is after just one use! 

One con to this product, in my opinion, is that it is messy. But honestly as long as you are careful, it's no big deal. Some say to brush in the shower. I did it over the sink and I did not have any problems. 

I guess another con may be that there are only 2 fluid ounces of product. But I have to say, a little bit goes a long way. 

The long term effects from using charcoal on your teeth enamel are not well known, so I don't think I will use this every day. Everything in moderation. I will definitely use it when my teeth need a pick-me-up!
