I have been OBSESSED with watching Instagram videos of people trying the trending Charcoal Toothpaste and knew I needed to get my hands on it and soon! After looking on the websites people were tagging in the videos, I didn’t want to pay over £10.00 for a toothpaste, especially if it didn’t work… So I shopped around. Holland and Barrett sells a very similar product for over half the price!
Ecodenta extra black whitening toothpaste with black charcoal and teavigo is only £4.49 in Holland and Barrett. A lot more affordable! The toothpaste is 93% ecological/ingredients of natural origin which is always a bonus. This is what the tube says…
“Toothpaste with black charcoal and Teavigo is designed for those who seek new things and unconventional solutions. This toothpaste effectively removes plaque and has a strong whitening and uniquely refreshing effect. It’s cutting edge ingredient – Teavigo, an active substance found in green tea – eradicates bacteria that cause caries and maintains a healthy oral microflora.”
No matter how much I brushed my teeth or what toothpaste I used, my teeth never seemed to get any whiter. I even used teeth whitening strips in the past but still no change. So I thought I’d give this a go…
It’s just like normal toothpaste, a little goes a long way. The only major difference is that it is a thick black liquid, looks super gross too!
As you can see, my teeth are a shade of yellow and I HATE it! I got myself a new toothbrush in case the toothpaste dyed my brush black, but not to worry, it all washed out!
Another factor I was worried about was the taste… I was worried that it would taste horrible! Although to my surprise, it was a lot nicer than I thought! It isn’t very minty, I can’t really explain the taste. The paste turned my whole mouth black, it looked so gross!
After just one brush, I could already see the results! There’s not a great improvement but in all fairness, I didn’t think there would be any improvements at all on day one. The aftermath was amazing, my mouth felt so fresh! Freshier than it has with any other toothpaste. The freshness lasted hours, even after eating. I was so surprised!
The difference is quite noticeable, there’s still a little ‘yellow’ tint but you can definitely see the change! Considering this toothpaste is a fair bit pricier than what I would normally pay, it was worth every penny. It’s by far the freshest toothpaste I have used, it leaves my mouth feeling minty and clean for hours! I’m definitely going back to stock up on more!
