MUST HAVE TEETH WHITENER COSTING A MERE £1.00!
Member Name: vickymarks
Advantages: amazingly it works!
Disadvantages: there are none
Being a smoker and coffee drinker for the past few years, my teeth had as expected become a little stained and were certainly not sparking white.
I had purchased many teeth whitening products in the past, each time with the hope that they would make a difference in the colour of my teeth, but none of them seemed to work. The toothpastes with teeth whitening qualities were only helpful in cleaning my teeth, as would any regular toothpaste. The tooth whitening gel that I had bought online, was messy to use, time consuming, and didn't leave any noticeable effects either. The idea of getting my teeth professionally whitened was just a dream, have you seen how much it costs!?!
Anyway, I continued purchasing these worthless products with little hope, and I am now happy to say that my search of affordable teeth whitening (that actually works) ended three weeks ago in the most unlikely place..Poundland!
I was originally going to buy some more 'Pearl drops' when I noticed that there was a product on the next shelf called EURCYL TOOTHPOWDER! I was tempted into buying this due to the statement on the front 'Powerful stain removal'. I thought it was worth trying as it only cost a pound.
The powder itself is contained in a small white 50g tub which is rather clinical looking. There is a little tab on the lid that sticks out for ease of opening the product. The directions are displayed on the lid, which I think is rather useful, as it is easy accessible for referral whilst using the product.
The Tooth powder:
The tooth powder is pale pink in colour. It has fine consistency similar to that of talcum powder. The powder has quite a strong refreshing smell of aniseed, and a slight 'dentist' smell to it. However, I don't find the smell offensive in any way. It has certainly not put me off using this product.
Using the toothpowder:
The toothpowder is to be used one to two times a week in addition to your normal toothpaste.
I simply followed the instructions and wet my toothbrush, shook off the surplus water and pressed my toothbrush into the powder. I then brushed my teeth for around 4 minutes (the same as I would with regular toothpaste). Whilst brushing, the powder forms into a light, bubbly pasty texture, that tastes just as it smells. The powdery taste does not stay in your mouth for long after use, but I must admit that I am especially thorough in rinsing my mouth after using this product.
The instructions state to 'Avoid use on damaged teeth'. However, I have a silver crown, and several (ok, a lot) of fillings and have had no adverse side effects from using this product on those particular teeth.
After use, you simply replace the lid and press firmly to preserve freshness.
My personal experience:
Immediately after the first use I noticed a considerable difference in the brightness of my teeth. I was pleasantly surprised to find that this product had actually worked!
I have now used this product six times over the past three weeks and can see a huge change in the colour of my teeth. My teeth not only look whiter and brighter, but they also feel extremely smooth and clean after using the powder. I often have a little smile at myself in the mirror purely to admire my new white teeth. They are certainly not as white as Simon Cowells, but they are getting there.
I like the fact that the product is quick and easy to use, unlike other tooth whitening products such as gels that can be messy and time consuming. The only downside of this product is that when you close the lid a little amount of fine powder puffs out which can make a little mess.
It would be so tempting to use this product every day, but I am sticking firmly to the guidelines and only using it twice a week. My only trouble now is that when I see people with stained teeth, I have to restrain myself from advising them to buy this product, as it might be seen as a little offensive.
As previously stated, I have used the powder six times over the past three weeks. Due to the fact that only a little powder is used each time, I would guess that this tub will last at least six months, making it excellent value for money!
I highly recommend this product to anyone that would like a brighter smile. I will certainly continue to buy this product!
Summary: Excellent product that will actually leave your teeth whiter!
