[Sponsored Review]: Darlie All Shiny White Charcoal Clean

黑人牙膏. Tell me who is not familiar with Mr Darlie? I've been using Darlie toothpaste for the longest time (switched to other brands but somehow this is my favourite?). I really like the Expert White toothpaste but it is deemed pricey so my dad doesn't buy that :(. Currently using Darlie All Shiny, works okay but definitely not as well as Expert White.

Then I was sent the new Charcoal toothpaste!

I've been using twice a day for 12 days and this is what I've gathered. Oh missed one of the days as I was staying in hall.

Whitening in 14 days

I tend to pick toothpastes with whitening properties. Who doesn't want a set of Pearlie whites?! I drink coffee/tea quite frequently to keep myself awake. I can study more efficiently when I have a small cup of caffeine. :/ However, coffee/tea stains my teeth so bad. The staining was so bad last semester wtf. Foresee the same thing happening very soon.
I didn't put it to the full 14 days test because of my schedule but 12 days ain't that far from it right. I can see a difference after use (especially in the morning) but the results are not permanent.

Stars: 2.5/5


Doesn't feel as minty as the older version but sufficient to keep your breath fresh. I don't like to talk to people after I brush because I find the mint smell too overpowering. Hence, I'm glad Charcoal clean isn't that overwhelming.

Stars: 3.5/5

Cleaning properties

It cleans really well! I love running my tongue over my smooth teeth after I brushed hehehe.

Stars: 4.5/5

Instant whitening

Not permanent but this is after brushing! Not bad right!

I looked so unkempt. It's sooooo hot I had to tie my hair up when I'm not taking pictures. 

Stars: ★

The verdict:

I find Charcoal clean even more effective than the older All Shiny white. It foams well hence brushing is relatively easy. I can see a difference, though it doesn't last especially when I ate food that stains, in just a day. I don't blame Darlie though! I can't expect $90 polished teeth just from using a toothpaste right~ However, Darlie (older version) toothpaste kept my teeth really really white for a very long time after my dental appointment 2 years ago LOL. So I figure Charcoal clean will not disappoint me! At an affordable price of $3.20, there's no reason not to give it a try!
Toothbrush I'm using is from Systema, in case you're wondering. It has tiny fibres which clean the little gaps well.

Rating: 8.5/10
Repurchase: Most likely! That is if toothpaste manager (my dad LOL) remembers
