Being an avid tea and coffee drinker my teeth were in dire need of whitening, I couldn’t afford the cost of professional teeth whitening and I didn’t want to use strong whitening strips that could damage my enamel.
So when Hello Beauty contacted me to ask if I wanted to try out some of their products I jumped at the chance. Their kit includes a bamboo toothbrush, which is biodegradable and suitable for sensitive teeth and gums. The charcoal powder is ultra fine so it doesn’t cause gum irritation. The main reason I was attracted to their products is the fact they are all natural, vegan friendly and fluoride free.
‘Made from 100% certified organic coconut shell charcoal, Hello Beauty Teeth Whitening Powder not only brightens your smile, but also improves your overall mouth health. Our medical grade activated charcoal powder removes toxins, stains, discolouration and plaque from your teeth.’
The instructions state to wet the brush, dip it into the charcoal powder and brush for two minutes. The charcoal has no taste and doesn’t feel rough or aggravating on the gums. With normal toothpaste, despite being a regular brusher my gums tend to bleed from the harsh chemicals in the formula, however I was pleasantly surprised when I didn’t end up with bleeding gums after using this.
I have been using the charcoal powder for around 3 weeks and found a huge improvement in the appearance of my teeth. I consume tea or coffee around 3-4 times a day (it’s a British thing) and this powder has really helped in reducing the stains. You only need a small amount of powder so the pot is guaranteed to last you around 2-3 months. For maximum effect it is advised to use this twice a day replacing your regular toothpaste. As it doesn’t have that menthol taste, in the morning I also use mouth wash to ensure I don’t have bad breath.
Before I was sent these products I was very sceptical about charcoal teeth whitening products, I saw it all over social media but I just saw it as a trend and a lot of photoshop editing. But after using this consecutively over the course of 3 weeks I can say that this is a miracle product and I’m upset that I didn’t try it earlier! Aside from whitening your teeth it also removes toxins and improves your oral health. Hello Beauty currently have a discount on their products so you get the powder AND the toothbrush for £14.99.
