I tried hello Activated Charcoal Toothpaste Tablets with fresh mint and coconut oil since I use hello charcoal toothpaste a few times a week (I figured I’d keep with the dark theme). The tablets arrived in a small black metal canister, and I was immediately in love — and you will be too, if you also have a prized collection of irresistible bottles, boxes, and tins that will totally come in handy for… something… someday.
I opened the tin and sniffed. The tabs smell nice: very minty, but not like mint candy. I set the tablets on the bathroom counter, not quite ready to dive into the experience just yet.
After a few days of procrastinating, I was finally ready to take the plunge, but the tablets were nowhere to be found. I immediately assumed my 11-year-old had taken them — of course, she had. They were in her bathroom, squirrelled away with my good brush and my favorite lipgloss.
“What are you doing with my toothpaste tablets?” I asked.
“Using ‘em,” she said.
“Yeah, they’re kind of weird, I don’t really like them that much, but I like spitting black.”
Okay, then. Well, if she can do it, I can surely do it too.
