The whitening treatment comes in this small black pot (below) and consists of activated charcoal, natural calcium bentonite clay, and organic mint extract.
The toothbrush it came with has really soft bristles that are meant to accompany the whitening factory mixture. I would think that you can use any toothbrush, but I stuck with this one since it came with the package.
Supposedly your teeth will look whiter when using this twice a day. The verdict is still out on whether it’s “worked” for me, but I’m willing to give it a week or two before determining whether or not it really worked.
The downside: First of all, this stuff tastes awful. Don’t be fooled by the “organic mint extract” listed in the ingredients – it’s anything but minty. It left a bad taste on my teeth for hours after use. The best way to sum up this product is that it was a total hot mess.
The charcoal is so fine that when you try to get just a pinch (as per the instructions) to sprinkle onto your toothbrush, it goes everywhere. It stains your hands black, your sink, your mouth (temporarily, it goes away once you rinse). It (mostly) washed off my hands with water but it took a while to clean up my bathroom counter because it got everywhere. The second time I used it, I used a teaspoon to measure out the charcoal and this obviously worked much better. They should have skipped the “add a pinch” in the instructions and recommended a teaspoon from the beginning.
I have used a myriad of teeth whitening products over the years and this one just wasn’t my favorite. Ease of use is key with teeth whiteners. The kind that come in strips which you leave on for thirty minutes and then remove, toss and rinse, tend to be the best. We have also been testing out a Crest whitening treatment which consists of two small tubes of toothpaste-like mixture which you apply in two steps after brushing your teeth.
Unfortunately, my ultimate recommendation when it comes to Molr is to skip it. By all means, try it and see if you like it. They are primarily a subscription company with no contracts, which is an attractive business style to say the least. But you can get just as good, if not better, teeth whitening products elsewhere that won’t stain your sink/hands/mouth black. The toothbrush itself was great because the bristles were extremely soft, but they sell for $7 on the website and I think we all know you can get a toothbrush for a lot cheaper elsewhere.
Have you ever tried Molr products? What did you think?
