Warpaint Natural Teeth Whitener

I received the Warpaint as part of a BR trial team and was really excited to get stuck in and test it out!

The packaging is a black plastic jar with a screw-top lid which stays on securely but can be hard to open and close due to powder getting into the creases. The jar is smaller than expected, but because you use such a small amount of product each time it will still last for ages.

The product itself is a black, milled, charcoal powder which you dip a wet toothbrush into. I was surprised by the lack of fragrance and flavour but overall this isn't important.

I made sure to check the FAQ's on the website before using and also the official hashtag on instagram which was very helpful. The three main points everyone should know before using is;

1: Warpaint can be used instead of toothpaste if you wish. This is useful if you're a bit time-poor. 2: Warpaint stains. Keep an old, dark washcloth nearby! And maybe wear dark clothes while brushing if you're particularly accident-prone. 3: Use an old toothbrush, or buy a cheap one especially for your Warpaint. As I mentioned above, it stains everything black!

I initially started out by using it in the mornings approximately an hour after brushing with regular toothpaste. It was quite alarming the first time when the blackened water went everywhere. My sink, toothbrush, hands, face... it was pretty much a disaster zone. Thankfully it rinsed off the sink easily as I didn't let it dry and get stuck on. I used it with the recommended instructions by dipping in my wet toothbrush, brushing for 2 minutes, then rinsing my mouth several times with the cup of water that I had prepared earlier, and washing my face with the dark cloth to remove the black charcoal stains.

The problem I encountered instantly though was that the Warpaint stayed stuck to my gums around where the gum ends and my teeth begins (on top of the tooth, so couldn't be fixed with flossing). Having black gums doesn't exactly scream "I practice good oral hygiene"! It was after 2-3 days of this that I switched to using Warpaint at night and regular toothpaste in the mornings. Problem solved.

So, does it work? Well, maybe. I've been using it for about 9 days now and it has only been in the past 2-3 days that I think I'm starting to see a difference, but it's so subtle that it's can't be seen in photos. I think overall it will work, but you'd need to be using it daily for a month before you could give a real definitive yes or no to its effectiveness.

Would I re-purchase Warpaint? No, it's not likely. The amount of mess and fuss required just doesn't seem worth it for such slow results. I will keep using the jar that I already have though and hopefully I'll see some improvements soon.

Tips: Use an old or cheap toothbrush (not your favourite one!), get a cup of water ready for rinsing BEFORE you start, use at nights instead of mornings, and make sure you have a dark cloth nearby for clean-up!

A Better Polisher than Whitener

My teeth are not yellow and I'm not really a tea or coffee drinker so they're not particularly stained. Warpaint hasn't dramatically whitened but a little difference can be seen after a few uses. It will not get you 'pearly whites' however it does polish your teeth leaving them smooth and slightly more healthy looking. A bit over-priced and I will not re-purchase this, however I do feel if you have very stained teeth it will help remove those surface stains, but then again so do some toothpastes you can get for a fraction of the price.

Tips: If your teeth are not particularly straight then some charcoal may get in between them, so make sure to floss and brush with normal toothpaste after :D
