@PlacidPenguin@ThomasF It looks like some people are using an IOS app that looks like you guys and is kind of like you guys but not quite. @cwolfpack3 posted a screenshot above. You might want to say something official because I’m anything but. And PlacidPenguin is even less reliable.
@JT954 i have been using charcoal toothy tabs from lush (so i’m not really as shocked or confused as the meh staff writer seems to be about these) - i personally don’t really notice a difference, but some people do. feel free to read the reviews yourself. obv a different product but same ingredient same concept. https://www.lushusa.com/face/teeth/boom!/04342.html
There doesn’t seem to be a 2-for option. I can pick one or the other for $7.50 and then do the usual “do you want another” thing to get the second one. Not really a 2-for-Tuesday at all. I’m so disappointed
@mlitrus Toothpaste doesn’t whiten teeth. It’s a myth. The best it can do is polish them a little (with ingredients such as hydrated silica or calcium carbonate, for example), which isn’t whitening as much as it is removing topical dirt.
If you want to actually whiten teeth, you need hydrogen peroxide. It actually penetrates enamel and bleaches below the surface. Decent concentrations too, above 10%, which isn’t something you’ll find even in toothpastes that have it.
I think the claim behind activated charcoal is similar in principle, but I doubt it works in practice, as the molecules involved are much bigger in size and also not in liquid form. If it could penetrate enamel, getting it back out should be fairly difficult…
I heard that the charcoal doesn’t do anything for teeth. I have a charcoal mask that supposedly is the best one from Korea, and it barely does anything. No idea if this is better, but I don’t even want to bother wasting the money to try.
I know the model number write-up can get difficult to do day after day, but today’s begged for a thought on what the 60 applies to. We have 32 teeth, 28 if you had wisdom teeth removed, less if you are a hockey player… So is this supposed to indicate the product has almost/a bit more than 2 treatments worth depending on each person’s tooth count, or what?
@mollama the 60 stands for 60 grams. Or 2 oz. They say it contains enough for 200+ uses. Not sure if you’ll get quite that many but there’s a very good amount in there. A little goes a long way with this stuff.
Apparently, it will polish teeth, strengthen enamel, improves gum health, and freshens breath.
-Activated charcoal is abrasive on your enamel so be careful! I have found mixed abrasive ratings online (70-120) which is still better than most whitening toothpastes but I think it’s higher. I have used it a few times and it does an excellent job at whitening but left my teeth sensitive for a few days. Seems the trick is to gently put on teeth, let sit a few minutes then rinse, rinse, rinse.
As far as the blackhead mask- it definitely brings things to the surface but that means breakouts for a few days. Great to make skin look better in the long run but not right before your big date with Irk!
@phatmass I received an incredibly ridiculous response from Meh Customer Service today, claiming that the masks are supposed to be thin. I replied with pictures of myself wearing the mask in which it looks like I got a light dusting of ash that you can still see my skin through and asked that they compare it to the photo accompanying the mask listing on Meh.com, which makes the model look like she’s wearing an opaque leather gimp mask.
I complained about their misleading ad. I paid 15 and only got 2. What is 2 for tuesday??? Meh won’t do anything about it and then mask is seperated and watery. It’s junk. Had to throw mine away. Next time this stuff comes up, I will voice my opinion again.
