    Did anyone else notice that 2018 is the year everyone decided to make their teeth whiter than a 1990 toothpaste commercial? This is how I feel trying to keep up:

    Luckily for all of us, I stumbled upon the perfect solution for those of us who want pearly white teeth, but want to put in about 5% effort. Twin Lotus charcoal toothpaste ($6 on Amazon) is easy, cheap, and most importantly very effective.

    Its active charcoal/herbal-extract formula not only whitens, but can help kill bacteria and remove malodor (aka freshens your breath). Plus, it's cruelty-free and vegan-friendly!

    It has a whopping 1,394 five-star reviews — and some satisfying AF before and after pictures!

    Impatient people rejoice: thousands of people saw a major different in almost no time at all! The below picture is from three days — that's faster than it takes me to check my mailbox.

    It's also a quick fix for fresher breath — charcoal can naturally kill bacteria and neutralize odor. ~Science~.

    Five minutes over the sink = removing years of coffee- and tea-induced stains. Which is great news, because giving up caffeine is laughable.

    Basically there is zero difference in your routine other than a) you now use a new, natural toothpaste and b) your smile is better than ever.

    Get it from Amazon for $6.

    And if you miss that ~minty~ feeling from mainstream brands, just finish off with some Listerine mouthwash ($3.97 on Amazon)!

    For under 10 bucks nothing is stopping you! GO FORTH AND SMILE MY FRIENDS.
