I Tried Brushing with Activated Charcoal and Here’s What Happened

activated charcoal review

Hey everyone! I’m in full wedding prep mode and have been doing every physical self-improvement thing I can in order to look my best on my wedding day! I’ve been in the gym every day, watching what I eat, and taking care of my skin. One thing I’ve neglected up until recently however, is the lovely coffee stains on my teeth! When Avistar reached out to me with their charcoal teeth whitening solution, I figured I should give it a try. Here’s what I thought!

The Before & After


Genetically speaking, my teeth are not the best. Add in the fact that I’m an avid coffee drinker and BAM, I got problems! I’m always skeptical of teeth whitening solutions as they either don’t work well or hurt my gums because of how strong the chemicals are. With that said, I was really impressed with how well Avistar’s charcoal teeth whitening powder worked! The before is on the left and the after is on the right!

How to Get the Best Results

Basically, its as simple as brushing your teeth! Dip your damp tooth brush into the powder and then brush for two minutes. Do this twice a day (I did it before work and then before bed!) Right away I could see results but after two weeks, my teeth were permanently whiter! Just like any beauty product though, you have to keep using it consistently to maintain the whiteness.

A great follow up product is the Avistar Activated Charcoal Mouthwash ! I rinse with this once a day and it pulls out all the “ick” in my mouth and I get a nice detoxed feeling. It’s minty without the awful taste of alcohol other mouthwashes have.

So yes, brushing with charcoal does work! My teeth are whiter and don’t look like I chug coffee all day long, which is a miracle because I do! Definitely give it a try if coffee stains on your teeth are becoming a problem!

Special thanks to Avistar for sending me their products to try for free!

  1. I gotta try this. I am always really fussy about having a clean mouth (and beautiful teeth). Isn’t amazing what charcoal can do? It can clean your face and also your teeth/mouth with no bad effects.


  2. I have some of this but I am not consistent enough. I know I would get better results if I just used it more often. It can be a little messy tho.


  3. So great! You are going to be a beautiful bride! Thank you for the review. I was curious as if it actually works.
