A few weeks ago, I posted on my social media accounts that I was sent Kismet Essentials’ product “Coco Rinse” and to watch for a review soon. A lot of you were intrigued by this product and the oil pulling method. First off, I would like to thank Kismet Essentials for sending me their product, I am so delighted!
Before I get into the review, here is a quick bio on Kismet Essentials. They are a company based in Vancouver, BC (Yay for a Canadian brand) and they pride themselves on trying their best to use natural based products in their own lives, so they wanted to bring those kind of products to their customers. Their goal is to provide customers with products that will help them enjoy a naturally healthy and beautiful life. All of their ingredients are organic, non-GMO, and ethically sourced from sustainable resources. They are proud to provide products that make their customers feel good about what they bring into their home and put in their bodies. Their products are good for you and our planet!
To be honest, the oil pulling method was something I had not tried, because I wasn’t really sure what it was all about, or how it could give you whiter teeth. So like most people, I stuck to whitening strips. Those of you who follow my blog know I love to use products like Coco Rinse that contain natural ingredients that benefit your body, skin and overall health. I strongly believe in feeling beautiful inside as well as out, and Kismet Essentials believes in that philosophy too. After doing some research on the oil pulling method, and Coco Rinse specifically, I was super excited to test this out.
In case you don’t know what the oil pulling method is, here is a description from their website: “Oil pulling is our favorite natural way to get whiter teeth and fresh breath! If you’ve never heard of it, oil pulling is an ancient Ayurvedic dental practice, also known as “kavala” or “gundusha”. It involves swishing a tablespoon of coconut oil daily in your mouth for 10-20 minutes to draw and pull our the toxins in your body.”

Kismet Essentials also lists some benefits of oil pulling on their website:
- Whiter Teeth
- Fresher Breath
- Improved Digestion
- Reduced Headaches
- Cleaner Tongue and Mouth
- Better Immune System
- Healthier Gums
- Reduced Plaque
- Clearer, Softer Skin
- Improved Skin Conditions (Eczema, Psoriasis etc)
- Balanced Hormones
The Coco Rinse process is done over a 14 day period. One of the things I love most is how easy it is to use. You get 14 sachets in your kit, and you use 1 per day. Open the sachet and put the product in your mouth, then swish it around for 10 minutes (or up to 20). Yes- it’s seriously that easy.
Another thing I found awesome is how there is no mess. When I have used whitening strips in the past, I would get it on my fingers and lips. Because you have to peel the strips off and place them on your teeth, but none of this happens when using this product. Coco Rinse is also mint flavoured, so it tastes good! It’s basically like using mouthwash, you swish it around and there is no mess.
After the 10 minutes are up, you simply spit it out. Do not swallow it, because it contains all of the toxins it has drawn out, so make sure to spit it out! Another thing I love is how it does not leave that grimy feeling of film residue on your teeth; my teeth actually feel cleaner after I use this product. I am SO impressed.

If you have used whitening strips before, you have probably experienced the sensitivity and discomfort that comes along with using these. Coco Rinse gave me zero pain or sensitivity over the entire 14 day duration, including now that I am done using the kit.
After my 14 days of continued use I can see that my teeth are whiter. I am one to really take care of my teeth, I brush twice a day and floss once a day. When I was younger I had braces, so I now have a small wire on the back of some of my teeth to keep them straight. If you’ve had braces and now have these wires as well you know how annoying it is to floss with these. I do my best, but it is the only spot where I will get plaque buildup because it’s so hard to floss around the wires. Since using Coco Rinse I notice a BIG difference with my wires. Using this in conjunction with my flossing has removed basically ANY buildup I had accumulated since my last teeth cleaning, I cannot get over it!!
Overall I am really happy with the results! This product is a dream if you are someone like me who is obsessed with brushing and flossing haha and also because it is natural, whitens teeth and helps to keep plaque away which = cleaner smile = makes me super happy!
