I bought a 100ml tube of this from Savers for £1.98.
The toothpaste is supposed to whiten and brighten the teeth, but does it work?
I had a bad experience with this toothpaste. Initially I thought it was great. It has a nice minty aroma and the taste is really fresh and pleasant. It foams up well inside the mouth and it leaves you with pleasant smelling breath. However after a week or so I noticed that my teeth were becoming somewhat sensitive. I put up with it for a week or two then I decided to visit my dentist and ask them what was happening to my teeth.
After a couple of weeks the enamel on my teeth was wearing off, leaving me with small holes in my teeth that needed filling. This cost me around £46, all because of a toothpaste!
To be honest this toothpaste does NOTHING to whiten your teeth. It just works like any ordinary toothpaste really, except that it tastes better. I wouldn't recommend it though due to the fact that it actually ruined my teeth. It's too harsh and it contains a number of strong ingredients that strip the enamel off your teeth, leaving your teeth exposed and sensitive to hot food and/ or hot drinks. Eating ice cream is almost impossible too! The toothpaste is not suitable for daily use. If you DO wish to try it I would recommend using it once or twice a week as hopefully it won't be as harsh then.
Not for me!
I think a person's smile is so important but have read that the older you get the more dingy-looking your teeth become which is a dead giveaway if you want to stop the signs of ageing like I do! This tooth 'Natural White' formula isn't just for oldies like me but is said to be good for smokers or anyone who just wants to make their teeth appear whiter.
I didn't really expect much as I only paid 99p from QualitySave & I have tried several tooth whitening toothpastes before without much success.
The tube I got was just the 50ml size (they do bigger ones but I decided that I'd just go for the smaller one to see if I had any success. It comes very smartly packaged in a sturdy box with gold & it claims to 'remove more than 90% of tooth staing - BBC TVs Watchdog'. It also claims to be 'less abrasive than other leading brands of both whitening & regular toothpaste'.
Other claims include -
- 'cleans & safely removes stains & film without bleaching & polishes to give a brighter, more confident smile
- is extra gentle
- contains soluble calcium & fluoride, agents proven to help strengthen & remineralise tooth enamel for cavity protection.
It also states on the box that the 'dual action anti-bacterial formula containing xylitol & triclosan - 2 clinically proven agents which help fight plaque, a cause of tartar'. A full list of other ingredients are listed & there's a money-back guarantee.
The paste itself has a gentle minty flavour & tastes quite pleasant when you use it (recommended 2 - 3times per day). It certainly isn't abrasive & makes the teeth feel smoother & well-cleaned.
I had a few stains on my bottom teeth (from when I smoked) & they seem to have got less noticeable over the past few days & I've noticed a little improvement in the colour of my teeth although nothing dramatic (as yet).
It's pleasant enough to use & I've tried it with both a manual & a sonic toothbrush plus it rinses off easily. It leaves a fresh taste in the mouth too which can't be bad.
I'd say it's worth buying this for 99p but, in my opinion, there's nothing that works as well as the tooth whitening provided by dentists if you have £ to spare.

This is my favourite whiteneing toothpaste and I have tried pearl drops, arm and hammer, colgate whitening and maccleans. I honesty; find that because i use this toothpaste most people know me as havign nic white teeth, but when i went travelling, and being abroad and cost of toothpaste etc, i reverted to using any old one, and that really did leave me with yellow teeth. I dont really have any major teeth problems, and at one point i did get a teeth whitening system, but I lost motivation to use it because I find as long as I am using this toothpaste, then I do not really need my teeth to be any whiter.
ofcourse the advanatge this has over pearl drops is that this is all in one which saves time and money and is more convenient. however this is my regular toothpaste and I would never use a different one unless it was for something specific in the future like sensitive teeth etc and it certainly does do what it says which is whiten teeth to give youa nice smile.
it costs about £3 and you cna purchase it from boots or superdrug and as far as i know, it only comes in the one flavour but there is a sensitive version as well.
I have a real "thing" for teeth. It is the first thing I often notice about someone, how nice their smile is, and I often think that teeth care shows alot about personal hygiene...ok, so I'm rambling, but I'm trying to give a reason for why I buy so many oral hygiene products (just wait for the reviews to be typed, there will be many!)
I want white teeth again. Ok, so my teeth are not horrendous to look at, but they could be better. I actually want to have laser treatment on them, but for now, over the counter products will have to do. I long for the day I can right a review about one, and say "Hey! It works!!"
Right, back to the product. With promises of "maximum strength", "hollywood smile", and "whitening formula" - I had high hopes for this toothpaste. The packaging is great, no complaints. The tube (125ml size) has a wide lid, so the toothpaste can be stored upright if desired. The tube is made from a softer plastic type material than others on the market, meaning it keeps its shape and is easy to squeeze. A big thumbs up from me.
The taste is ok - minty and pleasant enough. After cleaning my teeth do feel clean, but after many uses, I'm not convinced that there is a difference in the colour of my teeth - they are still tinged a little yellow and are far from as white as I would like them to be.
All in all, it's a product I would buy again but not recommend for it's whitening claims.
Onne of my most sensitive areas from a vain point of view is my teeth. A few years ago I had acquired some very nasty staining and made it my will to get rid of them without the use of a dentist (not good advice I know, Ijust hate dentists). Thus I bought a top of the range electric toothbrush and my love affair with teeth hygeine began.
The toothbrush did the work, but the gems come from the toothpaste and I often flit between brands and find I am a sucker for gimmicks and marketing in this arena. Thus when i came across Beverly Hills Formula in a strangely clinical box boasting of being able to rebuild tooth enamel, strengthen teeth and gums, kill bacteria and yes, whiten like you've never seen before, I grabbed it there and then.
Does it do all these things? Well I am no dentist but I do know how it compares to other pastes I have used and unfortunately it doesn't rate highly. For the huge price of £3.99 for a 125ml tube (yes, I think I got ripped off) I was expecting so much more. My teeth don't appear whiter, and if anything my gums are hurting slightly. it could be a number of reasons I'm sure but I do not get the refreshing clean feel I get from, say, Colgate or MacCleans. Highly disappointed and wont buy again.
Beverly Hills Formula Natural White toothpaste comes in a good size 125 ml tube with a good wide lid meaning you can stand it up on it's end. What's more, the plastic the tube is made of seems to always keep its shape unlike so many other toothpaste brands where you end up having to roll up the tube from the end just to get a tiny bit of toothpaste out. This is great as it means you always finish the tube without wasting loads that you couldn't squeeze out.
One thing to note about this toothpaste is that although it seems to be stocked by plenty of different companies, prices vary ridiculously from shop to shop, with some offering it at little over £2 and some asking nearly £4 for the same tube, so it's best to shop around. Conveniently, it seems to me that supermarkets tend to offer this product at the lowest prices.
I am a big fan of the Beverly Hills Formula Natural White toothpaste but not specifically due to it's whitening capabilities, just because it tastes amazing! The flavour isn't harsh like so many other brands, yet it is still strong and long lasting, and it leaves your mouth feeling fresh and clean.
However, most people will buy this toothpaste for its claim to remove "more than 90% of tooth staining." To me this seems like an amazing claim, and I can't vouch for its certainty as I have no way of measuring. However, this product does produce significant results, far greater results than alot of other brands that I have tried! Within around a week of use I noticed great improvement in the whiteness of my teeth, but felt slightly misled by the perfect smile displayed on the box. This is no replacement for professional whitening that can be carried out by a dentist, but is an okay substitute if professional treatment is too pricey... just don't expect miracles! The result is probably far greater on teeth that were more stained to start with, whereas mine weren't too bad. Where I did however notice a huge improvement was along the tops of the teeth in the ridges on the surface, not an area you can really see without using a mirror, but it's still nice to know it's shiny and white there.
Although this toothpaste wont work miracles, it is nevertheless still my toothpaste of choice as I find it far more effective than other brands on the market, and alot cheaper too. The thing that particularly attracts me to this brand is the fact that it's not just concerned with whitening, providing all round tooth protection and fresh breath confidence. It's hard to rave about a toothpaste, but with this one I don't think you can really go wrong... it's a great long term product for whiter teeth, but it's no replacement for professional treatment.
I bought a tube of Beverly Hills Formula whitening toothpaste as I wanted the dazzling celebrity smile without resorting to having my teeth professionally whitened. I purchased it from Boots for Asda for just under £3.
The name 'Beverly Hills' is very clever as it immediately suggests that it will give you a movie-star smile. The packaging is primarily white and silver which of course is a dazzling combination, which you immediately associate with the product.
It comes in a cardboard box with the tube of toothpaste inside. Again, the tube is brilliant white adding to the suggestion that it will make your teeth brilliant white too. I bought the traditional paste which has a flat end so you cannot stand it up. There was no other kind of tube (such as a pump action one which stands up) available in the store I got it from, although the company may sell them in larger stores, I'm not sure. I am not keen on this as I find the toothpaste dispensers that stand up are much neater to store away.
After a few weeks I definitely did notice an improvement in the whiteness of my teeth and what I liked about this product is that with the toothpaste you get a free guide to show you the difference it makes. This works as they provide a chart with different shades of tooth colour on, from very yellow to Hollywood white which you hold up to your teeth before starting to use the product, and then use this starting point to compare how much lighter they get as the weeks progress. I really liked this as it proved that you get tangible results from using the toothpaste - sometimes I think when using beauty products that make specific ambitious claims (whether that is to whiten teeth, reduce wrinkles, make lips look fuller or whatever) it is difficult to measure whether anything really improves or whether you just think it does because you want to believe the product you have just splashed out on is working. The makers claim your teeth will be at least 2 shades lighter with regular use and I found this to be true in my experience.
Sounds like a miracle product so far doesn't it?
Well unfortunately, while all of the above is completely factual, I no longer use the toothpaste and never will again. Not because I did not love my dazzling new smile, but because for me the results came at too high a price. The formula was far too strong for me and I developed awful mouth ulcers. It took a while for the dentist and I to realise what it was that was causing the reaction (hence why I used it for a few weeks), but when I figured it must be my toothpaste and stopped using it, my problem was solved instantly. I thought this meant I was allergic to whitening toothpastes in general but have used Aquafresh and Colgate with no adverse effects. I believe it is because there is something stronger in this paste than in standard whitening toothpastes which is what makes it so much more effective in its whitening capabilities than any of the others I have tried. However that is not to say it affects everyone in this way. My husband used it and was fine with it - he only stopped because it is easier for us to both use the same toothpaste.
My honest advice about this toothpaste would be it is very strong, which makes it very effective. By all means try it if you want good results but watch out for any adverse effects. If I had connected the ulcers to the toothpaste I would have stopped using it immediately and would not have been in agony for weeks. I did not realise straight away as I thought it was just me being generally run-down at first (as I suffer with ulcers when I am run-down), it was not until they got really bad that I realised it must be an allergic reaction.
I have given this product 3 stars as it certainly did not agree with me but it would be unfair to rate it solely because of this.

It's a pretty slow day when the only thing you can remember is how good a new toothpaste was but I am a student and between playing guitar and avoiding work i haven't had a lot to do lately. Excuses aside it may seem strange to spend 15 minutes telling the world how great something so trivial as a toothpaste is, but it really did inspire me to write this and for a toothpaste that speaks volumes in my opinion.
I noticed this product when looking in a supermarket for toothpaste surprisingly, I like to try new things and I was attracted to this product firstly because of the price, of all the whitening toothpastes around it it was easily one of the cheapests and the packaging was bright and attractive. From the box i learned that it was the least abbrasive yet one of the most effective products in consumer surveys and i decided to give it a try. As i mentioned earlier i am a student currently and am exxperiencing the poverty which accompanies it and if this product wasn't one of the cheapest on the shelfs there is no way it would have found its way into my basket.
The first thing I noticed when using this toothpaste is how good it tasted, it is a very nice mint flavour which leaves your mouth feeling very clean and fresh without being too strong or leaving a bad aftertaste which i have noticed with other brands. It is so good i found myself actually wanting to clean my teeth after eating anything.
Beverly Hills Natural White Breath --- £2.99
BlanX Complete Whitening Toothpaste --- £6.99
I have seen other products around £8 and from my own experience they are worse or no better than this product.
This product effectively and cheaply whitens your teeth without bleaching or high abraisives, the toothpaste is nice and smooth doesnt feel uncomfortable to use like some other similar products can. Even more visible results are apparant if not from the first brush then easily by the first week. Go on, give it a go.
This review may seem a little lighthearted and frankly when talking about the merits of a toothpaste i find it hard to write any other way, but I hope readers will detect my sincerity throughout and when i say i genuinely recommend this product
