Naturally whitening teeth with charcoal? | Charwhite Cosmetics

There's been a trend of using charcoal to whiten teeth and I really wanted to give it a go and see if it would make a difference. 
I am always on the lookout for new products to incorporate into my beauty routine.

So does covering your mouth/teeth in black powder results in white teeth?! I know it sounds crazy, but it actually works! There are many different ways to use charcoal to whiten teeth, but today I want to show you the one where you brush the charcoal powder onto your teeth.
Charcoal helps to whiten teeth as it's a purifying agent that absorbs impurities.
It can remove/reduce the signs of stains on your teeth and make them squeaky clean. How amazing is that?!
It also strengthens enamel which is insane!Charwhite Cosmetics have a vegan charcoal pot which is all natural, vegan, cruelty-free, fluoride-free, non-toxic and non-GMO.
If you have sensitive teeth and gums like me, you don't have to worry as this charcoal powder is pain-free! Yay :)
Its also great to know that some of your purchase of Charwhite will go towards some non-profit organisations they support like: Charity Water and Pencils of Hope.
Yes, It does make your mouth look....well, you can make up your own mind but beauty is pain...right?!To apply, wet your toothbrush and then apply a decent amount of the product, by dipping the bristles into the charcoal. Then you can brush your teeth. Brush for a few minutes working in a circular motion. Then rinse out the charcoal thoroughly.
When I brushed my teeth, I made sure I closed my mouth as I started to brush as I didn't want to get covered in a charcoal dust cloud, which can be a nightmare! I can vouch for that!

Brush for around 2-3 minutes making sure to cover all your teeth then rinse. Make sure you don't inhale the powder. 
A plus of using charcoal is that it has completely no taste which I was worried about. It also doesn't stain your skin so if it gets over your face, it just washes off easily. 

I can tell a definite change in the colour of my teeth. They are a few shades whiter, I am so happy! It's definitely worth a try! It can be used 1-2 times a week to keep your pearly whites....white :)

I love this technique as opposed to unnatural and toxic gel whiteners etc. I prefer to use a less harsh and natural product to get results! :) Highly recommend CharWhite!!!

Vegan shepherds pie recipe

Vegan. gluten-free, wheat-free

I was approached by Rennie to feature on their 'Taste of Britain Campaign' which is all about celebrating and showcasing the wonderful variety of foods in the UK.

Iconic London review | First impression

So the first thing to say is...WOW.
When I first opened the packaging and saw the Iconic London brushes in real life I just fell head over heels in love. I've never tried the 'toothbrush' style makeup brushes before so I was excited to see if they made a difference to my makeup application. I also got the Pro Evo brushes, which are handheld brushes. I've never in my life seen a brush shaped like it, and I can't explain how ergonomically pleasing it is. LOVE!

Baked tortilla samosa recipe

Vegan, wheat-free, gluten-free, no-fry

What beats a spicy samosa?! Nothing!!!
I love the crispy coating with the spicy filling, but the downside about traditional samosas is that they are made with pastry and deep fried which isn't the best for you, even though they taste insane.
I wanted to make some healthier samosas, but keeping the same tasty textures and flavours!
