CHARCOAL TOOTHPASTE?! | CARBON COCO TEETH WHITENING REVIEW | VIDEO

I’m digging the charcoal polish and toothpaste that Carbon Coco sent for me to review! I’ve seen a noticeable difference in how white my teeth are and it’s so easy to use!

What I’m using: The Ultimate Charcoal Kit

• The Activated Charcoal Tooth Polish Unlike the usual activated charcoal from health stores, this is made of finely milled Organic Coconut Activated Charcoal with a hint of Bentonite Clay and Lemon Myrtle. This special formula is proven to be very gentle yet effective in detoxifying the mouth and removing stains! It has zero taste and smell.

• The Activated Charcoal Toothpaste This is a toothpaste formula that doesn’t have fluoride. It also contains our magic ingredient: activated charcoal! The toothpaste is black but turns into white foam while brushing, and it has a yummy minty taste. The toothpaste is designed to protect your teeth from further staining throughout the day, so you won’t mess up your results if you love coffee and coloured drinks!

Bonus: all Carbon Coco products are vegan-friendly and cruelty-free!

Erno Laszlo Vitamin C Peel Mask

Influenster was kind enough to select me to try and review the Erno Laszlo White Marble Dual Phase Vitamin C Peel mask. The set retails for $100 and has the following description:

Peel and reveal. Powered by super-nutrient Vitamin C, our clarifying two-step peel gently polishes skin as it fades dark spots and discoloration. Step 1 gently exfoliates; Step 2 activates brightening and moisturizing actives—you simply peel away to uncover instant radiance. Your complexion feels instantly new: smoother, even-toned and illuminated. Protective antioxidants and collagen-boosters combine to refine and renew skin, such as age-defying actives and brightening ingredients, including:

    • Vitamin C—the formula’s star multitasker—to reduce dark spots and dullness, lighten skin and jump-start collagen production.
    • Carrot seed oil to heal and balance dry or chapped skin, while helping fight age spots and sun damage.
    • Lactic acid to gently exfoliate skin so it’s properly prepped to absorb brightening, hydrating and healing nutrients.

I had never used a product like this before, so I was very excited to try it out. First, you use the smooth peel all over your face and rub it into your skin for about 3 minutes. This smells super citris-y and really wakes you up! Then, you mix the liquid activator into your hands and massage it into your skin for one minute. Finally, you rinse with warm water when you’re done.

My skin felt and looked wonderful after using it. It really got all that dead skin that can be tricky to get off and left me with a pretty glow. It did not irritate my skin at all either.

It is suggested to use this set weekly. I’ve had it for about a month now and have been doing just that. It’s been a great addition to my skin care routine and I’m actually considering getting more when I run out of this. I hope it lasts me quite a while, though.
