The Secret To Pearly Whites: Just Smile London

June 19, 2017
Just Smile London Activated Charcoal

Hey all! We all want gleaming pearly whites right? Well after hearing about the hype of Just Smile’s activated charcoal I had to try it out. It seemed only fair to give a 2 month update to really see whether it lived up to my expectations.


  1. See results within ONE WEEK, 5-6 Shades Whiter
  2. Contains Anti-Bacterial and Anti-Fungal Qualities which works great against fighting & preventing Gum Disease.


Wet a toothbrush and dip into Activated Charcoal. Brush teeth as normal, paying special attention to areas showing the most staining. Sip a bit of water, swish through mouth thoroughly and spit. Rinse well, until spit is clear. For best results, brush your teeth with activated charcoal 2 times daily for 7 days & three-four times per week after.

Just Smile have also kindly stated the ingredients and amounts which is super useful – as I could see what was in the product before I bought it.

Coconut Activated Carbon – 96%

Bentonite Clay – 3.5%

Organic Mint Extract – 0.4%

Organic Orange Peel Extract – 0.1%


Honestly I can’t even explain how little product is needed per use. I have been using this product for 2 months and it has there is still a lot of product left. I would personally advise to buy a separate toothbrush with this as it does stain the bristles black (which I learned the hard way). The packaging says to brush in circular motions for 2 minutes, to ensure you don’t scrub, which is damaging to the teeth.

Good Points:

  • It does work – I can assure you about that
  • As well as whitening the activated charcoal does give your teeth a deep clean
  • It is super easy to apply!

Bad Points:

  • As it does not have a minty taste substituted it for toothpaste is a little odd
  • It can get messy as it comes in powder form
  • Some days it is difficult to remove the charcoal from your teeth
  • I would not say my teeth are 5 – 6 shades lighter, about 2 – 3 shades

After using Just Smile London Activated Charcoal


I really do like this product and it does work, as an avid tea and coffee drinker it lifted a lot of the stains. Although it does claim to make teeth 5 – 6 shades lighter, I did not see that much of a transformation. This could be due to the fact that I have pretty good teeth anyway, but I’m not sure. The fact that it is a replacement for regular toothpaste is a bit odd – purely because it does not have the minty freshness, but that is something that can you can get used to – using mouthwash would resolve this. However, I cannot emphasise that this product does work (I can see it lifting tough stains). My family had even noticed the change, and believe me, they wouldn’t notice subtle changes! Therefore, I would totally recommend this product!

    Sounds really good! I have been trying a teeth whiting powder that I can only use once a week so the results are pretty poor, think I’m going to try this!

    Love the honest review! I’ve been trying to whiten my teeth for like 6 months, but I drink a lot of coffee so I’m not seeing a lot of progress yet.

      No problem! It’s definitely worth giving it a decent try, I know where you’re coming from however – it takes a while to start seeing results

    First of all I want to say excellent blog! I had a quick question that I’d like to ask if you do not mind. I was interested to know how you center yourself and clear your head prior to writing. I have had trouble clearing my mind in getting my thoughts out. I do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are lost just trying to figure out how to begin. Any suggestions or tips? Kudos!
