Carbon Coco

OOTD-4

Hey, Ya’ll!! We got the chance to try Carbon Coco a natural teeth whitening system.We used the Ultimate Carbon Kit which retails for $59.90 (original price $69.90) The kit includes bamboo charcoal toothbrush, activated charcoal fluoride free toothpaste, activated charcoal tooth polish and satin bag.

The Run Down

We used both the toothpaste and the activated charcoal for 7 days. No mouthwash or any other toothpaste brand, just Carbon CoCo.

What we liked:
Teeth felt clean
Loved the toothbrush

We didn’t have much success with the toothpaste and activated charcoal. We didn’t see a  our teeth get whiter but the toothbrush was awesome. It was really soft and gentle and really helped with the clean feeling. The Carbon Aqua Flosser and Tongue Cleaner are two things that we would love to try!

Shea Moisture Black African Soap

Hey Ya’ll!! We are back with yet another Shea Moisture product review: Black African Soap. We have been using this line for a couple of months and we love it of course!!! The Black African Soap Skincare Line is geared towards people with blemish and troubled skin (acne).  The Black African Soap line has three main ingredients; Black African Soap, Tamarind Extract, and Tea Tree Oil. We use the Black African Soap Bar, Problem Skin Toner, and Clarifying Mud Mask.   Here are the deets!

The Main Ingredients

Black African Soap :  natural remedy for troubled skin

Tamarind Extract :  naturally exfoliates and brightens skin

Tea Tree Oil:  has antiseptic  properties

Shea Moisture describes the Black African Soap as a line that keeps problem skin hydrated, balances oily and blemish complexions, leaves skin smooth, shine free and is great under makeup.

Black African Soap Bar: this lathers up nicely but not too much. We noticed that our skin isn’t dried out after washing our face. The smell is decent and not strong at all.

Problem Skin Toner: love this stuff!!! It is not drying at all and for us, it keeps the oiliness at bay during these hot summer days.

Clarifying Mud Mask: This mask is amazing for any breakouts that may occur but the scent is a little strong at first but we have gotten used to it.

Pros

Moisturized skin

Skin feels really smooth

Black spots from acne are fading

Cons

Problem skin  Toner needs to be a little bit bigger..lol

Lesley and I have used everything out there for our skin since our high school days. It worked but our skin was dry or it wouldn’t work at all. Using these products gives our skin the balance, moisture and keeps the breakouts to a minimum.

Have you tried any of Shea Moisture’s skincare line? If so which one?
