My Experience with Teeth Whitening Products

Teeth Whitening is something that is very heavily advertised in the beauty world, and we probably all think the same thing - 'what a load of rubbish!'. For the most part, we're probably right. I've tried certain products in the past that aim to give you that pearly white smile, and I've always found the products too harsh. After a week or so of using them, I've gave up. I have pretty sensitive teeth as it is, and products that aim to essentially bleach your teeth just do not work for me. 
The only products I have found to have a positive impact on my teeth, are those that contain Activated Charcoal as it is a natural ingredient. That being said, it is worth remembering that using said products will only whiten your teeth to their natural white shade. With no bleaching involved, the charcoal simply clings to, and lifts stains, making your teeth the cleanest they can be. The lates products I've been testing out on my teeth are from the brand La Lune Noire.

Not only does this product contain Activated Charcoal, which lifts those tricky stains, but it also contains Bentonite Clay. This is something I've never actually come across before but it claims to strengthen gums, remove toxins, and absorb heavy metals! Beyond that, it is also packed with peppermint, orange and lemon peel for fresh smelling breath.

To use with the whitening powder, I've been brushing my teeth with their Wheat Straw Toothbrush. The bristles contain Bamboo Charcoal to effectively clean your teeth. As someone with sensitive gums, I've found this to be a lot more pleasant to use than my regular toothbrush. I still however switch between the two.

I've heard a lot about Oil Pulling, but never really new what it entails. This blend is a mix of Coconut and Peppermint Oil to create the perfect mouthwash. How it works, is bacteria that is hidden in the crevices of your mouth are essential sucked out by the oils. The longer you swirl the mouthwash around in your mouth for, the more bacteria is pulled.

So, the big question is, do these products work? I have noticed a big change, yes. At first I used the whitening powder twice a day, but have now started only using it in the evening as I don't feel the need to use it as regularly now the majority of the tougher stains have gone. As for the mouthwash, I continue to use this daily. I tend to use it at night alongside my whitening powder just to ensure my mouth feels rinsed and freshly clean before I go to sleep. I may do an update post when I feel I have used these long enough to be 100% happy with the results. But as for now, I'm enjoying using them and continuing to see improvements.

  1. Ive tried coconut oil pulling before, I can't even remember what brand I used but it was definitely before it became a crazy last year haha! This black powder scares me, but I've seen a few instavideos of where people are using this & they say it really works! The brush seems very interesting xx


  2. These sound amazing! I definitely need to try activated charcoal, and I've always wanted to try oil pulling!

  3. I love teeth whitening products. I like trying all the different ones and seeing which ones actually work. You can sometimes get really affordable ones that are amazing!!

  12. How gorgeous are your photos, Terri?! I'm in love! I've always been a bit wary of tooth whitening products as I worry that they'll damage my teeth, but these sound fab! Oil pulling sounds very odd but if it gives good results, it's worth it!

  13. I've never tried any teeth whitening stuff before, but I'm always really interested. I think it's mad how something that's black can actually whiten your teeth! Haha. Might gives these a shot one day, if I can.


  14. I'd never heard of these products but they seem great! I'm quite afraid to use agressive products that bleach your teeth as I have sensitive teeth too (even though I would love a totally white smile...). I've also tried oil pulling with coconut oil but the taste and texture just put me off after a few times ^^ Will have to look into these products :D


  15. I'm surprised I haven't heard of this brand before. This seems definitely worth the buy and I love how it's natural. I love your review, it's very helpful and I am going to check this out now!


  16. I used to love oil pulling and noticed such a big difference in my teeth which is good! I have braces now so it wouldn't be too useful but once they are off I will be using so many more whitening products!! Loved this review I'll keep it saved to refer back to ❤


  17. It's great that you noticed a difference! :) x

  18. ohh this sounds brilliant, I've tried so many things to whiten my teeth and none ever seem to work, so its always good when you find a product that does. x

  19. I've never heard of these products before but they sound like they work great. I may have to give them a go myself!

  20. I actually just ordered a teeth whitening product. I'm hoping to see some good results as most of the reviews I have read about it say it brings great results. If it doesn't work as well as I hope however, I will consider giving this a try! Please keep us posted on how this works for you!!


  21. This sounds really interesting! My dentist is constantly giving me a hard time for the amount of tea I drink, pointing out that I'm staining my teeth between visits - I bet something like this would help with that!

  22. My parents actually own a dental company where they provide teeth whitening services so I'm always a bit sceptical about trying products that haven't been issued by a dentist but I'm so glad that these are working for you Terri! It's good to hear that you're noticing an improvement and I'd love to hear an update on how you're getting on soon! Xx

  23. I've never heard of this brand before but these products actually sound really nice to use! I'm the same I always think whitening products can just be so unpleasant sometimes but these sound like they really do work! Would love to give these a try.

  24. I really never know what to trust with Teeth whitening products but this seems exciting!


  25. I have to be very careful with teeth whitening products because my front tooth is filled after I smashed it as a kid, the natural tooth wouldn't whiten but the filling would not!

  26. definitely checking these out! really sick of trying ones that dont work

  27. I love trying whitening products these sound great!

  28. This sounds great, so glad you are happy with the results. I have been looking into products to whiten my teeth and this sounds right up my street. Also, you might like the Lush 'boom' toothy tabs as they are a charcoal toothpaste and I have used it before and seen a big impact on whitening my teeth before. Great post x

  29. These products sound great, I think I'll give these a go x
