I bought this the same times a buying the eucryl powder from 'the 99p store'. Although for this you get a very small 50ml tube (which I thought by the look of the outer cardboard box was actually bigger than it is), it is still hard to go wrong at this price so I thought it would be worth a try. I had also seen good reviews of the product so was hoping this would be the miracle product it claims.
The toothpaste is aimed at smokers. Whilst I am not a smoker I do drink a lot of coffee which I guess has a similar staining effect on your teeth. The packaging is clean and simple with the eucryl logo and a silver background. The tube comes in a cardboard box which is ok but not completely necessary as all the information you need is on the back of the tube. Perhaps if it wasnt in a cardboard box though (as most toothapstes are) it could get damaged in transit?!
The actual plastic tube used to contain the toothpaste is very good, thin and flexible meaning it is easy to squeeze every last bit out.
Although the product states this flavour was freshmint I didnt find the product was as strong as I liked thus I found I had to use a lot of the product. In addition I had to use a very strong mouthwash to ensure that I was set up in the morning and my breath didn't smell!
I have been using this product now for two weeks (and in that time run out of product)! I have not seen a change at all in the colouring or appearance of my teeth. Although I know such products have limited results, and especially for this price I wasn't expecting great things I was expecting from the reviews I had seen something greater.
Eucryl tooth powder is the best stain remover i have ever used.
This tooth powder is not designed to replace your every day tooth paste but to be used in addition with an ordinary tooth paste as it is only recomended that you use Eucryl twice a week as it is too harsh for every day use.
Eucryl comes in a circular plastic tub and is a powder not a paste.
You wet your tooth brush, shake off any excess water droplets then dab your tooth brush in to the powder and clean your teeth as normal.
Eucryl removes the majority of every day stains, tea coffee, nicotine stains and all the others our poor teeth endure.
Eucryl realy does get my teeth back sparcling, so much so i have never had to have them polished at a dentist even after 11 years of smoking.
The only down side to eucryl is the powdery gritty feeling it leaves behind on my teeth so i brush again after using eucryl with my normal tooth paste to take the powderyness away.
I had been looking to find a good stain remover for my teeth for ages, as I used to drink a lot off coke and tea with three sugars, so you can imagine the stains on my teeth with all the sugar and not to mention the state some off my teeth were in, although I have since got them fixed.
I still tend to drink a lot off tea and I was also a smoker, so my teeth still tend to stain, the front ones are the worst so anyway I came across this stain remover called Eucryl tooth powder for smokers and I decided to give it a try, to my amazement it was FANTASTIC, my dentist had told me that there was no toothpaste that would remove the stains from my teeth and that I would have to go to him every few months to get the stains removed so I was truly surprised when this did work.
After a few times using Eucryl the stains on my front teeth were away and the rest off my teeth felt and looked cleaner than they had been in a long time. I have to say its the best stain removal I have ever used and I would highly recommend it, it really does work.
I usually buy this from my local chemist, it costs £3.00, but I have heard you get it cheaper in Semi Chem, (so i will be going there the next time.) It comes in two flavours which are original and mint , personally I use the mint because I think it leaves a fresher taste in your mouth.Although it does not have a strong taste,
Eucryl comes in a powder form and is in a round compact tub, you are supposed to use it once or twice a week, at first I used it everyday but when the stains on my teeth disappeared I have reduced it to once or twice a week and this seems to be enough to keep the stains away. hopefully for good. All you do is wet your tooth brush and dip it in to the powder and shake off any surplus powder and start brushing. Needless to say Eurycl is a smokers tooth powder and is not for kids.

being a smoker I noticed that my normal toothpaste wasn't doing that much for the colour of my teeth. There are so many products out there, which one do you buy and what works, I spoke to hubby and said when you visit the dentist and they clean your teeth, they use a powder, then hubby mentioned Eucryl toothpaste. So off I went to Tesco and there it was, it was £1.59, so I decided to give it ago.
I read the instructions and it said to dampen the toothbrush and dip into the powder.
It comes in a small round tub with a tuff lid, so the powder doesn't get wet.
Mine was a green coloured powder and smelt like you were at the dentist. The taste was actually fresh mint.
Do not use on damaged teeth.
I had a broken tooth, that I had broken a year before and gone to the dentist to get it sorted.
Hubby was fine, he had really good teeth.
So started using it, it was a bit strange at first using powder, it felt dry, but you could see it cleaning your teeth.
It is not instant, but after about a week I could see the difference, nice normal white teeth, GREAT.
Unfortunately I wish I had of took the instructions on board a bit better.
5 weeks after using this, my broken tooth started to hurt, it hadn't caused me a problem since it had broken. I ended up at the dentist and had to have it removed.
Then hubby, never a problem with his teeth in his life, starting getting problems, the pain got that bad he ended up at the dentist. He had a tooth removed and is now waiting for a hospital appointment for 4 teeth to be taken out.
He spoke to his dentist and he explained that the toothpowder we were using does say you shouldn't use on damaged teeth, but I didn't have any damaged teeth, that's where your wrong, you may not have known you a had a few little problems, but the toothpowder has brought it to the surface.
So buying this product at £1.59 ended up costing us £140 in dental fees.
So basically if you have damaged teeth Don't use this, if you don't think you have anything wrong with your teeth, you will soon know after using this product.
Eucryl is toothpaste specially formulated to remove stains from the teeth of smokers, and having fallen of the No Smoking bandwagon I once again qualify to review this product.
When you smoke cigarettes small deposits from the smoke you are inhaling are left on the teeth, normal toothpaste does remove a certain amount of this but is not really very effective. If the problem is not addressed then your teeth are going to end up looking a dirty colour of light brown.
When I called Eucryl toothpaste that wasn't strictly correct, since it isn't actually a paste at all. It is in fact a pretty coloured powder, which has a smell which can best be described as medicinal. The smell initially gave me the impression that this product was going to be successful; it just smelled like it was made for the job. I know that sounds a weird statement but it did. The powder is a pink pastel shade and over 3/4 fills the 3 inch diameter tin that contains the product. The tin is a good idea since being a powder it is obviously advisable to keep the contents dry.
The best way to use this product is to use a wet toothbrush to firstly wet your teeth thoroughly. After rinsing the brush make sure it is only moist and not too wet. Dab the moist brush into the product until it picks up a decent amount of powder. Clean your teeth as normal and you will feel the powder doing its work. I thought at first that this was going to damage my teeth, because it did feel a little abrasive. On running my tongue over my teeth once finished I felt no roughness in fact my teeth felt very smooth and clean.
Now it's no magic powder you don't get instant results but if you persevere, after a few cleanings you will start to see a difference. When I say a few cleanings I'm talking in the region of 8 - 12. The taste of this powder is in contradiction to it's smell, as I said it kinda smelled medicinal but it tastes minty and fresh. At first it is a strange sensation to be brushing your teeth with a powder, but once it mixes with the wetness on you teeth it becomes more of a powdery paste, which is probably why I have found it to work so well. You might imagine that it would leave your mouth feel a bit dry, but it does in fact leave it feeling very fresh and clean.
The tin of Eucryl that I purchased cost me 99p but I have since seen it in ASDA for around 89p, which is on a par with most toothpastes.
Overall after using this for a while I have found that it does help keep the nicotine stains at bay better than ordinary toothpastes, It does however take a little bit of getting used too.
After a visit to the dentist, hubby came home with this toothpaste, ready to get pearly white gnashers- they did actually already look pearly white but I do believe visits to the dentist spur you on.
This claims to be a powerful stain remover, first marketed in 1900. It is used to remove stains caused by smoking and drinking coffee and red wine.
I think it is marketed to be a smokers toothpaste but obviously, other stains can be removed.
WHAT IS IT?
It is sold in a small square silver box with all instructions for use on the back. Open the box and there is a small pot inside with a pull up lid. This was looking less and less like toothpaste by the minute; I thought you squeezed toothpaste out of a tube!
The product itself is pink powder with a very strong mint smell and when used, a strong mint taste.
PRICE AND AVAILABILITY
This can be purchased in most chemists and supermarkets and appears to cost £1.19 for a 50g tub.
This is available in Original, Freshmint flavour toothpowder and Freshmint flavour toothpaste
To use it, you firstly have to clean your teeth with your usual toothpaste, then shake off any surplus water from your toothbrush and dip it into the pot. This will make some of the powder stick to your toothbrush, and all you do then is clean your teeth in the usual way. So, in actual fact, they get cleaned twice on the days this is used (recommended twice weekly). After use, make sure the lid is pressed firmly down.
Do not use on damaged teeth
Keep away from children
WHAT I THOUGHT
Once I had got over the strangeness of this been a toothpowder an not a toothpaste, I decided to give it a go, and it is very simple to use and effective.
As I said before, it has a very minty smell and a fresh minty taste, and although it seems strange at first to be rubbing powder over your teeth, and a bit chalky, this strangeness soon passes! After cleaning with this powder, my teeth do feel very very clean. Probably due in no small part to the fact that they have been cleaned twice, and due to the fact that the powder will almost certainly have a more abrasive quality than toothpaste. It does contain Calcium Carbonate so I am assuming that this is the ingredient which makes teeth all sparkling and white.
My teeth didnt really have stains anyway so perhaps I am not a good judge of this, but after using it for a few weeks, they did actually look whiter; or was that my imagination working overtime?
A little warning of my own- dont suddenly inhale when this first goes into your mouth or you have a coughing fit!
The one problem with the product is that I dont think you ever get to use it right to the very last bit of powder. Obviously, because of the water on the toothbrush, the powder starts to clump together. This is now my third tub and I tend to throw it them away at about one third full, since I cant stand looking at congealed powder! However, saying that, even at this rate, it does last for over a month with 2 people using it so its relatively good value.
For stained teeth, or for a fresh just cleaned feeling. Its worth giving it a go, although on tough stains I dont know how impressive it would be

On our bathroom shelf is this tub of Eucryl smokers toothpowder. It is my dads because he is a smoker and tobacco stains teeth....YUCK. He's been using this toothpowder for years now, not all the time but every now and then he uses it to clean his teeth, so being the ever nosey type of person who likes to test things before writting about them. I had a go at this and boy do I wish I hadn't. It's gross. This tub which is a 50g one cost my dad a pound from the pound shop, I can remember him buying this and it hasd been on the bathroom shelf for ages, like I said he doesn't use it every day but if he's going anywhere and he wants to look good, he uses this and I have to say it does work, even though it tastes like you have a mouth full of minty dry powder. I used it the other day just to be able to write this op, I don't smoke and definately won't be using it again, but for those of you who do smoke then this will make your smile whiter than white. Or if your a coffee drinker as that also stains your teeth this toothpowder will work. It is a peppermint flavour and when you open the lid, which you have to be carefull with because it's a fine powder inside, you will see the light pink powder. It also smells sort of like mint but there is another smell which I can't discribe, but it reminds me of dentists. To use this wet your toothbrush and dip it into the powder, then clean your teeth as usual. It feels like your cleaning your teeth with a fine gritty powder and the taste is not nice at all, but I can honestly say that the whiteness you will see after using this powder will surprise you. I had to brush my teeth with other toothpaste to get the taste away, but the results are brilliant. I won't use it again as I don't really need it and it is my dads who will probably tell me not to use it again. So if you are in need of something to get your teeth brilli
antly white then here it is. Smokers can have nice teeth too.
Being a smoker and noticing fast the increased staining of My teeth through paticipating in this filthy habit.I decided to investigate the smokers toothpaste section in the supermarket. I remember My sister using Eucryl,so decided to try it. It came in a small flat tub,inside you will find some pink power,wet your toothbrush dab into the powder and brush away.Or is it gag away? This stuff made my stomach churn,it was disgusting. The texture of the powder was harsh and most of it fell off the toothbrush onto my tongue. This is what made me feel sick. The actual taste wasnt to bad,not being to strong. I tried to continue using this for a few weeks but just couldnt stomach it. I am not going to say that it doesnt work as there was a slight improvement to the colour of My teeth,but I much prefer to brush My teeth with paste. Not long ago Eucryl was also made in a paste form,but my god was that minty taste so strong it nearly burnt My tongue off. Needless to say I dont use Eucryl anymore.
eucryl tooth polish is the best cleaning product ive found for removing marks and stains from my teeth, Smokers especially take note that your teeth are left noticeably whiter. Yes the taste is a bit of a let down but the product itself is a real winner. Eucryl tooth polish comes in more of a bottle than a tube and is quite economical, it is not sold in all supermarkets but can easily be obtained at your pharmacists. After just one weeks use my teeth were noticably whiter. my friends thought id got false teeth the difference was so obvious. A good cosmetic product at a reasonable price.
