A little over a week ago, I posted a 2-in-1 beauty DIY for teeth whitening & blackhead removal. I received a lot of positive feedback on the quick tutorial video I shared on my Instagram which illustrated the application of the teeth and blackhead mask. I thank you all for showing me much love and I appreciate each and every one of my readers!
The recipe is awesome because it only requires baking soda and lemon juice but sometimes I get super lazy to start whipping up recipes, dirtying a mixing bowls and wondering if I have any lemons in the fridge. Luckily, I could save myself the hassle because teeth whitening just got even EASIER for me thanks to Caribbean Coco!
Caribbean Coco sent me over some product to review and compare to my teeth whitening DIY that I mentioned above. The opinions below are completely my own based on my experiences.
I received my package from Caribbean Coco right before I departed for my trip to Dallas. I couldn’t wait until I got back to New York to try it out so, I decided to pack some product with me and test it out during my trip. I am so glad I took it with me because I absolutely fell in love!
This product whitens and brightens teeth, protects against enamel erosion, helps get rid of plaque and bacteria build up that can cause tooth discoloration and bad breath. It’s literally AMAZING because of how efficiently and quickly it works. The application is just 4 simple steps.
1) Dip 2)Brush 3)Rinse 4)Smile ;D
HOW EASY IS THAT?! After just using the product once, I noticed a little difference. I repeated this once a day for about 5 days and oh boy do I notice a huge difference! My pearly whites are super pearly white!
Peep my smile below!
They recommend to brush your teeth with the product about 3-4 times a week. I plan on following their recommendation because of how happy I am with the product usage results.
Okay, so this review is about to get lit………
THIS PRODUCT IS NATURAL!
Yes, yes, yes! It contains no chemical additives. They claim the active charcoal to be 100% natural and safe without any toxic fillers. This is awesome because most whitening strips or powders contain a lot of harsh chemicals that can harm your teeth over a period of time.
Caribbean Coco Charcoal vs. My DIY Teeth Whitening Recipe
I definitely lost this one! I would pick this charcoal powder over my recipe in a heartbeat! I feel like it’s more effective because my results were more noticeable with this powder then my mixture. The packaging in this product also makes it super convenient. It comes in a little round jar which eliminates the need to make a mess mixing up ingredients. There is so much product in one jar that is enough to last you 4-6 months depending on how often you use it. This is so much better then having to create a mixture every time you want to whiten your teeth. It’s also odorless and tasteless. That’s really important because I can’t tell you how many times the smell or taste of other teeth whitening products make me gang. I admit my mixture doesn’t smell but let’s just say the taste of baking soda and lemon isn’t the greatest. Coco Caribbean smells like nothing and tastes like nothing just in case you swallow some while rinsing.
I am unsure how much oz is present in one jar. I’m going to guess about 3oz or so. You can purchase it on Caribbean-coco.com or on Amazon for $19.99. Although the product was gifted to me, I still think it is affordable because of the generous amount that comes in one jar. Trust me when I say a little dip goes a long way. I will most definitely purchase this product once I run. This is now a new addition to my weekly routine.
FYI- They also offer a few other products aside from the teeth whitening powder like a body scrub, a clay mask, handmade organic soap and tons of bathroom accessories. I plan on trying a few on these as well so stay posted on those reviews!
Special thanks to Coco Caribbean for this wonderful opportunity and to all of you who read and keep up with my blog. Feel free to comment or message me about any questions about this product or even just to say hi. I love hearing from each and every one of you.
Don’t be shy & drop a line!
