I’m not particularly worried about my teeth being perfectly white. That said, I still don’t mind getting my teeth a bit whiter. Drinking coffee and tea and eating certain foods do make your teeth more yellow, but nowadays it’s easy to brighten them up.
Easy? Yes! For me it’s important that the teeth whitener product is easy and quick to use. I’ve tried teeth whiteners that take up to 45 minutes or an hour to work and I’ve noticed that I tend to forget to use them. But with this natural Warpaint teeth whitener I get the same results in just a few minutes.
WARPAINT Natural Teeth Whitener review
The product that I’ve been using lately is Warpaint. It’s this black powder made from activated coconut charcoal and other natural ingredients. Did you know that charcoal is actually also used in medical care for overdoses of medications or alcohol?
The charcoal in warpaint is non abrasive. It removes toxins and absorbs materials. That way it helps with discoloration and stains. I love that the product is all natural. If you read my blog you know I like to use organic products and I’m careful with what I’m using especially on my face. You can find more info on warpaint and it’s ingredients here.
How do you use warpaint?
You simply just wet your toothbrush (you may want to get another tootbrush just for this), dip it in the warpaint powder and brush your teeth for two minutes. You want to keep your mouth closed so you don’t spill the black magic all over the bathroom. Then you just spit it out and rinse your mouth. Done!
Does active charcoal for teeth whitening work?
I think active charcoal works for teeth whitening, definitely. I can see a clear change in my teeth. They’re brighter and whiter now that I use this. At first I used this every day for about a week and then I cut down to 2-3 times per week. That may sound like a lot, but it’s just two minutes extra. Taking care of your teeth takes time anyway with flossing and everything.
The only downside to this product is it being a bit messy and ugly. It’s black, it’s powdery and it doesn’t look pretty on your teeth. But I don’t think it’s really that bad. After you get used to the product you know how to do it, so you don’t mess up your sink. And two minutes is nothing. I like to do this in the evening so I brush my teeth with regular toothpaste after using this to get all the black powder out of my teeth.
