Mornings with Carbon Coco

As a lot of you probably know, Carbon Coco has been a internet hit since the brand started sending their products to just about every social media influencer. At first I was worried about why they had to send their products to just about everyone to get people talking about it, but that marketing got people genuinely talking because of how great the product really is. My first impression of the brand was that their products were cruelty free, no fluoride, and used all natural products, which is definitely all things I really appreciate when it comes to self-care products. I decided to work with them very quickly and excitedly to have this chance to try them out!

I first wet my toothbrush and dip it gently in the activated charcoal powder.
Being cautious of not spilling, I then begin brushing with little pressure to polish
my teeth. I work the powder all around my mouth brushing evenly throughout for a total of 2 minutes. When spitting the charcoal out, you HAVE to spit low to the sink and try to be gentle otherwise you will have a literal Jackson Pollock painting in your sink (see reference here). At first was incredibly intimidating brushing with a powder (and a jet black one at that) but as I got used to working it into my morning routine I began to really look forward to it. The reason being, is the instantly brightening smile it leaves! After seeing so many "reviews" online I was being cynical and originally thought that the way it works was that the dark charcoal colour just cancels out the yellow tones in stained teeth by leaving it's own kind of stain. But now I'm sure that over time it has genuinely left my teeth looking brighter and actually more healthy without feeling stripped of all my enamel. The Crest White Strips always made my teeth feel sensitive and dry but I'm confident to say that the Carbon Coco powder leaves them in better shape then ever.

The second step is definitely my favourite because of the amazing formula of this toothpaste. After brushing with a powder that leaves a LOT of residue in between your teeth or on your tongue, you 100% will want a second cleanse with a good toothpaste. I love the spearmint flavour and the fact that it's FLUORIDE FREE! Fluoride in toothpaste has always made me feel absolutely sick to my stomach and honestly, it made me hate brushing my teeth. In high school, oral care felt like such a chore but now I genuinely feel excited to use these products in the morning. 

Overall, I am so incredibly pleased with this brand and their message. They are continuing to be innovative and grow their company more and more with the release of their water flosser and even coming out with new flavours of activated charcoal. They made a natural whitening system so mainstream that so many smaller healthcare companies can market charcoal powder in products and people not be deterred by how scary that sounds. Thank you so much to the team at Carbon Coco for sending their products to me and being patient with me to create a post I was proud of! I can't wait to continue using these products as I go on my big road trip at the end of the summer so I can brush everyday and be confident these products won't harm the environment.
