Disclosure: I received a free jar of Moon Dust Tooth Powder to trial for this review. All opinions are my own.
A couple of weeks ago, I came across a weird looking tooth paste product called Moon Dust Tooth Powder. I had recently switched to a natural deodorant which I have been very happy with and was considering trying their natural tooth whitening products when I found Moon Dust.
Moon Dust Tooth Powder
Moon Dust is a food grade tooth powder which is new to the market. It’s a tooth whitener but also a tooth paste and it looks super weird but I’d read some good reviews about these type of products so I was keen to try it.
A Little Bit of Background
5 years ago, a friend introduced me to safer skin care products. Before then I had no idea about the kind of ingredients that companies were putting in our personal care products. After speaking with her, I did some research and realised that companies often choose the cheap way out, regardless if this means using ingredients that have been proven to be harmful. Since then, I am always happy to find a product that can do the job I need it to do, but with less risk to myself and my family.
This is just one of the reasons I was so excited when Gabrielle Morrison (RN and Holistic Health Coach), one of the founders of Moon Dust offered to send me a sample of the product to try it out for myself. Not only is it the first product I have received for an official review, I even have one to give away to my readers!
I headed into the bathroom with Moo to try our new, kinda funky looking, tooth powder. I’m not going to lie, I was super worried it was going to be really gritty and taste kind of funny. I was very surprised (and pleased) to find it wasn’t like that at all.
Moo went first and was not a fan. Possibly because it’s quite different to what she’s used to but she hates most toothpastes anyway. After that I was even more worried about what it would be like but with trepidation, dipped my brush in the powder and into my mouth.
I wasn’t sure if I was supposed to add water or not. I know I’d read this on the Moon Dust website but was too excited to go check again, so I tried without. The Tooth Powder seemed to stick to my toothbrush fine and didn’t feel dry in my mouth. FYI the website says dip your brush in water first, salt water is good. Seriously, this stuff was not at all gritty and didn’t really have any taste at all. Phew! Makes it much easier to write a review when it’s good!
I brushed while Moo laughed about my black teeth and then gave my mouth a really good rinse. And I mean, a really good rinse. Moon Dust recommend that you have a dark cloth handy to help with clean up and I’d second that idea. They also suggest you can brush your teeth in the shower. This is better for clean up, but you probably want to dip in the powder outside the shower first.
My teeth definitely felt clean afterwards and maybe a little whiter – have a look at the photos below and see for yourself.
The Rest of the Week
Day 2 – I think because I was a bit worried about the taste and texture of the Moon Dust the first time I used it, I didn’t brush as well as I could have. Today I gave it a really good go and, this is going to sound a little bit weird, but it almost tasted a little like cake mix. I think maybe it’s the cinnamon in the mixture.
Day 4 – I decided to try it in the shower today. Much easier to clean up as long as you’re careful transferring the Moon Dust on your toothbrush to the shower.
Day 6 – Squirt saw me with black teeth and thought it was hilarious so wanted to try it himself. He was a little slow to start and said it tasted funny. However, he actually brushed his teeth for longer than he usually does with regular toothpaste, so it can’t have been too bad.
Day 7 – I took my final photo and compared it to the others. I felt like I could definitely see a difference in the whiteness but thought maybe I was getting carried away. I called ever sceptical Hubby in to see the photos. He took one look and said “so I guess it works then?”.
Results: Squirt now only wants to use this and not his other toothpaste. That’s always a good sign – must be because it tastes like cake! (And he thinks it makes him look like a zombie). I am super happy with the results and that the tooth powder tastes and feels much better than I expected.
Are you so amazed by this product that you just can’t wait to try it for yourself? Moon Dust is available for purchase from their website mymoondust.com. You can also find your closest stockist on their “Shop” page.
