Whiter Teeth + Less Mess = A Serious Charcoal Toothpaste Win!

Charcoal is in just about everything now.
We’ve been seeing it pop up in skin cleansers, deodorant, and even toothpaste. But have you actually tried smearing the stuff across your teeth? It’s pretty much a scene straight out of a nightmare. The dark stain filling the cracks between each tooth, the black drool dripping down your chin, and don’t even get me started on the cleanup project that will be your bathroom countertop.

Here’s the thing — I totally understand the payoff. Charcoal is an awesome detoxifying agent, especially when it comes to having a brighter, whiter smile. But do we really need to risk creating such a mess each morning to take advantage of those benefits?

I’m a sucker for beauty DIYs so I used to try to mix powdered charcoal with my regular toothpaste to brush away at my teeth. As you can see, it’s pretty much a disaster. Even some of the pre-mixed charcoal toothpaste at the store caused just as much black splatter around my countertop.

When I saw that Crest had a no-mess option and was asked to try it, I was a bit skeptical (I mean, how is it possible that charcoal won’t be messy) and to my surprise, it worked like a charm without having to clean up!

I ordered the Crest 3D White Whitening Therapy with Charcoal from Amazon and was totally curious how this would turn out! Upon inspecting the paste as I squeezed it out of the tube, I saw there were stripes of charcoal infused paste (rather than a big glob of black gunk on my toothbrush) blended with their signature formula. Combining the two pastes is brilliant since the mixture still cleans and protects enamel along with leaving your breath super minty as you would expect. Except with the charcoal infusion, teeth are visibly whiter after brushing!

Even better, the package boasts a “no mess formula” and it’s true! The charcoal portion of the paste is a sparkly grey so you won’t have any woes of a scary black smear across your teeth. Plus, the foam actually gets lighter as you brush, so you won’t end up with a mess in the sink to clean up. It was a win-win all around!

If you’re a fan of charcoal infused health and beauty products but don’t love the mess they can make, then this toothpaste is worth the try. For a limited time, Amazon is offering $2-off 3-packs of Crest 3D White Charcoal, so order some for yourself and give it a try.
