MAN what a weekend and week so far! My brother, Donovan, came in to town to stay with Jordan and me for the weekend and we had a blast! Between shopping the NSale, catching up, and eating some INCREDIBLE food (including Korean BBQ, which if you haven’t tried yet, I HIGHLY recommend), the weekend FLEW by! Now it’s back to working 7-5 everyday and prepping for finals in my summer classes that I have at the end of this week, which basically translates to: I’m practically hooked up to a coffee IV until Friday comes around.
SO, if you drink as much coffee as I do (or an amount even remotely close) you’ll know that while coffee is GREAT for keeping you alive, awake, alert, and enthusiastic, it’s not so great for your smile and trying to take nice pics to post on the blog. But I discovered a product recently that I’ve been using for a couple weeks now that has REALLY helped to remove some of the coffee stains I had and that I can honestly say I will continue to use to keep my smile photo-ready and shining bright! 🙂
The product is called Natural Teeth Whitener & Detoxifier by Avistar. It’s completely natural, made from organic activated coconut charcoal and baking soda! I had been wanting to try a charcoal teeth whitener for a while, because I kept seeing ads for them on Facebook and had heard such good things about them, but I could never afford them since they were usually super expensive (okay well usually like $50 but for a little container, that’s a lot to me!!). Avistar reached out to me and asked me to try their Natural Teeth Whitener & Detoxifier and Natural Activated Charcoal Infused Mouthwash free of charge to try and review after using the product.
After trying these, I can HONESTLY say that I love these products!!
The charcoal powder can be a little messy when you first open the container, so I place a paper towel underneath for easy cleanup. I can’t stand not using toothpaste to brush my teeth, so I still use my regular toothpaste after brushing with the charcoal powder (not sure if it makes a difference, but Avistar recommends to brush with the powder first and then brush with your regular toothpaste, if you’re planning on using both and it seems to work for me so far). This also helps to get the charcoal out of your teeth if some got stuck between them! I use it once a day (at night since I’m usually always running late in the mornings and didn’t want to add another step to my already packed morning routine) and I’ve still been able to see results!
As for the mouthwash, I will admit I was a little skeptical when I first opened the bottle… the liquid is black.
I was super nervous that it might stain my teeth or even my sink when I used it, but it didn’t at all! It tastes fresh and minty and seems to work well with the powder product. Another thing I love about this mouthwash is that it doesn’t contain any peroxide at all so it doesn’t hurt your teeth if you have sensitive teeth (MEEEEEE, seriously if I use whitening mouthwash, I have to pour it onto a toothbrush and then brush my teeth with the mouthwash). This mouthwash doesn’t hurt at all and hasn’t caused any sensitivity or pain when I’ve used it!
Overall, for the price and quality of this, I would definitely recommend trying these products if you are looking to whiten your smile naturally! I really have enjoyed trying them and plan to continue using them to help whiten my teeth! 🙂
