I kept seeing ads on Facebook and I finally said, “Ok, I’ll try it!”I’m referring to The Dirt – Trace Mineral Tooth Brushing Powder.
If you’ve been reading our blog for awhile, you know that this girl likes her red wine and tea. As a result, my teeth were not exactly pearly white. I also have EXTREMELY sensitive teeth. I had tried over the counter whitening products that actually made my teeth hurt and more sensitive. I was looking for something natural and The Dirt kept calling to me. So I took the bait and ordered it.
I was very skeptical, but it got great reviews. I liked the fact that I could pronounce all of the ingredients. The first ingredient is Bentonite Clay which I am already a fan of and use to make a great DIY mask.
I have to say that I absolutely love this product! It’s kind of a different experience brushing with a powder as opposed to a toothpaste that foams up. You have to really hang over the sink since it will drip out and it’s brown. I know it sounds gross, but it has a spicy, orangey flavor from the essential oils and it makes your teeth and gums feel really clean and drumroll….. my teeth are whiter after just a few weeks!
I typically use it once a day and DoTerra’s On Guard Whitening Toothpaste any other times that I brush in a day. There are some DIY recipes out there that I may play with down the road since I already have Bentonite clay but it seems like this tiny jar is going to last quite a while. You just wet your brush, dip it in and off you go.
Because I’m an Amazon Prime junkie, I ordered mine there. Two days, free delivery…who could resist?
I’d love to know if anyone else is as in love with The Dirt as I am – let’s talk dirty!
