This charcoal toothpaste works the same as another charcoal toothpaste I used before — Cali White Activated Charcoal & Coconut Oil Toothpaste — in terms of whitening. hello Activated Charcoal Toothpaste ($5) is half the price of Cali White ($10). They are both 4 oz. Let’s compare the ingredients in each one.
hello Activated Charcoal Toothpaste:
Sorbitol (Humectant), Hydrated Silica (Polishes And Cleans Teeth), Vegetable Glycerin (Soothes And Moisturizes), Xylitol (Sweetener), Purified Water, Charcoal Powder (Whitens, Polishes And Cleans Teeth/Freshens Breath), Flavor (Freshens Breath), Xanthan Gum (Thickener), Titanium Dioxide (Mineral), Cocamidopropyl Betaine (Cleanser), Sodium Cocoyl Glutamate (Cleanser), Coconut Oil (Soothes And Moisturizes), Potassium Sorbate (Maintains Stability) And Stevia Rebaudiana Leaf Extract* (Sweetener).
Cali White Activated Charcoal & Coconut Oil Toothpaste:
Purified Water (Distilled Water), Xylitol, Diatomite Diatomaceous Earth, Baking Soda, Activated Charcoal, Tea Tree Oil, Organic Coconut Oil, Xanthan Gum, Citric Acid, Peppermint Oil, Natural Flavors.
Cali White has a shorter ingredient list, but (this is just me) I don’t care. As I said before, they both gave the same results. The hello brand is thicker in consistency and feels more like an actual toothpaste. From what I remember, Cali White fully dissolved due to the fact that it doesn’t contain any foaming agents. Between the two, if I were to pick one to try again, I would choose hello Activated Charcoal Toothpaste. I can’t justify paying $10 for a charcoal toothpaste if the results are identical from my own experience. With both charcoal toothpastes, the whitening effects isn’t that noticeable. That’s why I will not purchase either one again. I want a toothpaste that shows results. I want visible teeth whitening effects. The only time my teeth looked visibly whiter was when I used this.
Yep, it worked. Unfortunately, the effects only lasted a few months, which isn’t bad. I enjoyed it while it lasted.
Have you used a charcoal-based toothpaste before? Did it work for you?

I have more protein bars to share!

Garden of Life Organic Fit High Protein Weight Loss Bar (Chocolate Covered Cherry)
I’ve tried Garden of Life High Protein Weight Loss Bar before. At one point, I was addicted to them, haha. This time, I have Chocolate Covered Cherry. It’s a new flavor to me. This is what I think about it.
These are the blandest protein bars out there. They don’t taste like what it’s called Chocolate Covered Cherry. Just a hint of that flavor. It’s barely there. They are soft in texture. Somewhat similar to a brownie, which I like. Even though they are bland, I really do like these. They make a satisfying treat that’s low in sugar. There’s only 1 gram of sugar (0 grams of added sugar) per bar. That’s why these protein bars are tasteless. Each bar contains 200 calories with 14 grams of protein and 13 grams of fiber.
Do I recommend these? Once again, they are satisfying. I do enjoy having them early in the morning with my breakfast or alone. Since they contain Green Coffee Bean Extract, it wakes me up quickly. But, I realize that I am very sensitive to caffeine. I get really hyper when I consume caffeine, lol. That’s why I don’t drink coffee with caffeine as much anymore. I choose decaf whenever possible. These protein bars (to me) are very addicting due to the caffeine in it, so I only purchase them once after a couple of months for a nice low sugar, high protein snack. Yes, I would recommend them if you can handle a snack that’s bland.
Organic soluble tapioca fiber‚ organic vegetable glycerin‚ organic pea protein‚ organic almonds‚ organic chocolate coating (organic cacao nibs‚ organic erythritol‚ organic tapioca fiber‚ organic cocoa butter‚ natural licorice flavor‚ organic stevia extract (leaf)‚ organic sunflower lecithin‚ organic vanilla bean extract)‚ organic pea crisps (organic pea protein‚ organic starch)‚ organic sprouted brown rice protein‚ organic cacao‚ organic acacia fiber‚ organic tart cherry‚ organic carob‚ organic flavor‚ organic svetol® green coffee bean extract‚ organic ashwagandha‚ sea salt‚ organic cinnamon.
Raw Rev Glo (Mixed Nuts, Caramel & Sea Salt)
Remember Raw Rev Glo Protein Bars? One of my favorite flavors is Mixed Nuts, Caramel, & Sea Salt. This is what I think about them now.
I still feel the same way as I did before in my last review. It’s healthy and tasty at the same time. It’s filling too. This protein bar makes it feel like I’m eating a candy bar. I would definitely purchase these again soon. 🙂
Raw Rev Nutty Superfood Blend (raw cashews, peanuts, raw almonds, pea protein, organic brown rice protein, raw organic hemp protein, raw organic virgin coconut oil, raw organic chia seeds, raw organic sprouted flax seeds) isomalto-oligosaccharides (prebiotic fiber from tapioca), organic Italian dark chocolate chips (cane sugar, chocolate liquor, cocoa butter, soy lecithin, vanilla extract), pea protein crisps, natural flavors, organic brown rice syrup, sea salt.
Have you tried any of these protein bars? Did you like them? 🙂
