Carbon Coco Teeth Whitening Kit with Activated Charcoal Review
This review was shamefully overdue! In the sense, I have had this DIY Carbon Coco teeth whitening kit with activated charcoal for a while but I just couldn’t get to use it. I know as much silly as it sounds but the truth is, after my wisdom teeth came in, my teeth started shifting.
My front teeth are uneven and few of them are a bit chipped and jagged and as a consequence I feel self-conscious about my smile sometimes! I know they don’t look that bad, but it’s a personal issue I have with my teeth – I hate giving them any TLC or attention. So I was kind of avoiding all the trouble!
But this is where the story goes interesting for me and probably amusing for you!
Last night, while doing my daily skincare PM routine, I noticed that my teeth were getting yellow! Well, not just ‘getting’ yellow but they had literally become yellow – thanks to my obsession with tea and coffee – my teeth now looked even more horrible to me!
“What the hell?” I thought to myself. “Like it or not, but now I am going to do something about them and get them looking to their very best!”
So today morning, after enjoying my morning cuppa and sending my kids off to school, I took out the contents from my new Carbon Coco Teeth Whitening Kit and got started – finally putting the kit to its paramount use.
Well, here are the results & review –

What’s the brand’s description of the products in the kit?
Carbon Coco Natural Teeth Whitening Powder
Carbon Coco is a 100% Natural Teeth Whitener. It naturally whitens teeth, polishes teeth, strengthens enamel and detoxifies your mouth without any chemicals and added nasties.
Activated charcoal is the secret ingredient. It’s an oxidized version of charcoal and can be used to effectively whiten teeth. It removes external stains from your teeth without the toxic chemical ingredients used in commercial tooth whitening.
This tooth whitening promotes good oral health and can change the pH in the mouth, helping to reduce things that cause cavities, gum disease and bad breath.
Carbon Coco Activated Charcoal Tooth Paste
Carbon Coco’s new Activated Carbon Toothpaste has a unique Activated Charcoal fluoride free formula that fights cavities, plaque, gingivitis, bad breath, keeps your mouth refreshed and replaces your everyday toothpaste. This tooth paste reduces bacteria build-up by up to 90 percent for 12 hours and penetrates deep between teeth to fight bacteria plaque.
What’s in it?
100% organic coconut shell derived activated charcoal with a hint of bentonite powder and lemon myrtle.
How much does the ultimate carbon kit costs?
Carbon Coco’s ultimate carbon kit costs around $ 89.95 but it’s currently available in just $ 44.95 at 50 % off on the company’s website.
What all is included in the kit?
The kit contains three products along with a cute little black pouch to keep the products in. The three products are:
1*Activated Charcoal Toothpaste
1* Activated Charcoal Tooth Polish
1* Tooth Brush with Bamboo Bristles
How to use it?
Simply dip a wet tooth brush into the black charcoal powder and start brushing in gentle circular motion over your teeth. Brush for 2-3 minutes, spit carefully and rinse.
Now, apply the activated carbon toothpaste on your brush and brush again for 2 minutes. Rinse really well you’re done. Your teeth will look sparkling white and your mouth will feel amazingly clean.
My Experience with Carbon Coco Natural Teeth Whitening Kit with Activated Charcoal
To a person, who’s new to the idea, the whole process of whitening teeth with black powder may sound counter intuitive and gross. But it’s actually a great method of naturally whitening teeth at home.
How it works?
Activated charcoal is a highly absorbent substance. All dirt, debris, and plaque from your teeth get attached to the surface of the charcoal, which when rinsed flushes them out of your teeth and mouth. Thus successfully removing all toxins, stains, and plaque from your teeth, making your teeth look super clean and pearly white.
Now since, I’d already noticed a lot of bloggers and you tubers brushing their teeth with activated charcoal to whiten them, I knew what to expect. And I knew it was going to be messy. The pitch-black powder stains everything – from your sink, floor, mirror, to your face and even clothes.
But then there’s no gain without pain. After using both polish and tooth paste, I was in awe with the results – my teeth looked super clean and shiny! Since my teeth were really yellow to begin with and I’d never used any teeth whitening procedure (at home or professional at the dentist) before, I must say, I am VERY pleased.
My two main concerns were – stains and sensitivity. And I am happy to state that the finely milled polish has successfully removed all the stains and yellowness without hurting my gums or damaging my enamel. So what I love about this polish is that it’s gritty but it’s not abrasive grit.
So even though, my sink was messy – my mouth felt amazingly clean!
I won’t say my teeth have become like REALLY white after using this kit. But it has indeed made my teeth look brighter and squeaky clean. And for a single time use – the results are pretty impressive.
Here are my before and after pics:
How often to use charcoal teeth whitening for best results?
For best results, it’s recommended to use once daily for three days consecutively. Then wait for a few months before re-doing it again. However, if you’ve got really badly stained teeth like me, you should use it for 5-7 days in a row before taking a break and re-using.
As per the brand, following a regular routine with activated charcoal for teeth whitening can help you maintain a bright, beautiful smile forever!
