I received this product at a discounted price to review. I can see the difference in my teeth. The charcoal doesn’t have a taste, which is a bonus. It would not have been good if the charcoal had a taste. The first time I used the charcoal powder I brushed my tongue with the charcoal. Please don’t do that! You’ll have a black tongue, and will have to take other measures to remove the blackness from your tongue. I rinsed the charcoal from my toothbrush, and then brushed my tongue. This process eliminated the blackness from my tongue.. I missed that clean feeling from using toothpaste. For this reason, I used mouthwash or toothpaste to brush my tongue. I plan to continue using activated charcoal to brush my teeth.
The charcoal looks like ground up charcoal. When I brushed with the charcoal, the process was a little messy. The charcoal is not thick like toothpaste. As a result, while brushing my teeth, the charcoal did splatter on the mirror and sink. For this reason, there was some extra clean-up to complete. However, the benefits of using the charcoal far outweigh the consequences. I can’t wait to see my continued results of brushing with activated charcoal powder!
