Review: I was a little tentative about this product but thought I’d give it a go. I’m getting into the “natural” product thing and figured how bad could it be? It wasn’t bad – but I don’t really see the benefits either. In fact, I wondered if I had happened on to one of those too-good-to-be-true products so I checked their Amazon page expecting to see a few bad ratings. It turns out it’s a five-star product. The only negative reviews this seems to garner appear to be for the packaging.

Until recently I was a big coffee and soda drinker and my teeth are not so white any more. I’ve been brushing with the charcoal, hoping they would whiten, but after a month I don’t see any difference. I also used it as a facial as directed in the booklet that was emailed to me. While face felt good immediately afterward, I didn’t notice any longer-term results.

The one thing I did have positive results on was as a bug-bite poultice. We’ve had an exceptionally bad mosquito season and I’m itching like crazy. I mixed the charcoal with water and dabbed it on the bug bites. Within just a short time, the itching had stopped. (Note: To easily remove the charcoal from your skin, use Witch Hazel.)

I don’t want to give this a one-star review because I actually still have hope for it. I’m going to keep plugging away at the concoctions and hope I find other uses that work for me. A lot of people seem to have positive results so please, give it a try and let me know what works for you!
