I was excited to get on a trial for Pearl Drops with the consumer testing site Bzz Agent and they sent me a tube of the Pearl Drops lasting flawless white toothpaste that promises to remove 100 percent more surface stains than a regular toothpaste within 14 days.
This is a very clean looking white tube with silver accents. It looks expensive
You are advised to use this twice a day which is no more than a normal tooth brushing routine. I use mine with an electric toothbrush and immediately noticed it had a pleasant but not overpowering minty taste. Built in to the toothpaste are tiny grains so it is lightly abrasive which obviously provides the stain removing ingredient.
I did not think it was as gritty as the paste the dentist uses. Whilst it is a little bit more expensive than the normal toothpaste I buy it was not break the bank time. I do sometimes get sensitive teeth though so I have a special toothpaste for tackling those areas and this does not help in that area. I do want whiter teeth though so I shall continue with this one. I always associated Pearl Drops as a smoker's toothpaste (which I am not) but this is not aimed at that audience.
I did notice an immediate white benefit with this so I am happy to continue using it.
A 75ml tube is £6.99 from Boots. This is the top end of what I am prepared to pay but if it works, it is well worth it.
This toothpaste tastes nice and does a good job. I just wish it could also help with sensitivity! But never mind, it's not a time consuming job in reality and it's worth a try if you want to improve the shade of your teeth.
I am very into keeping my teeth clean and white. Its hard to keep them sparkling and its not uncommon to get yellow parts, I hate getting yellow teeth from tea stains! Recently I was in superdrug with my girl friend and this was in the sale section for only 10p! We picked 2 up as it looked pretty good and promised white veneers. It was worth the try for 10p as it usually is over £5. I wish I never spent my 10p as this has been nothing but terrible.
Packaging/how to use:
The product comes in a see through plastic package which tells you that it is an instant ultra white veneer brush on. You are told to brush it on and it will dry in seconds for a white tooth, you then brush it off at the end of the day/night. The actual product comes in a see through glass container with 5ml of shiny/sparkly liquid, you take the lid off and a brush is attached. The liquid then stays on the brush and you wipe it onto your teeth. You teeth must be dry first and once rubbed on you can put another coat on if desired. It sounds simple enough and it is as easy as it sounds, but the results are terrible.
Did it work?:
NO! first of all you are greeted by a horrible chemical smell from the liquid. Once rubbed onto teeth I allowed it to dry and it looked no different, I then applied again and there still was no difference. My teeth felt horrible and tight/sticky. The taste is unbearable! I followed the instructions step by step and so did my girlfriend and there was no difference to the colour at all, my teeth looked the same but felt worse. I have used this 5 times no to see if it works and it just doesn't. I simply don't know how they can sell a product that doesn't work and do what it says!
An easy to use product that doesnt work! DO not waste your money on this. I give this 1 star but would give it none if I could! Thanks for reading my review, I hope it helped.This was not worth 10 pence! Thanks, Josh
I like my teeth to look nice and white and Pearl Drops is a well-known whitening brand so when I saw the Pearl Drops Instant White product on sale I had to give it a go. The idea seemed sound- paint your teeth with this stuff and they'll have a sparkling white veneer. It wasn't too expensive (I got this for just under a couple of pounds, although if you go somewhere like Boots or Superdrug it will set you back a bit more) and it looked like it would do quite a few applications, so it seemed like a decent buy.
Pearl Drops Instant White is a glittery looking liquid which comes in a little rectangular bottle with a brush applicator, rather like the packaging you would get for a nail varnish or a lip gloss. It sounds easy to apply- you dry your teeth with a tissue, then apply a thin layer of the liquid to your teeth. Let it dry then apply another one. Easy, right? Except that drying your teeth with a tissue, for starters, is not that simple; dry a little too enthusiastically and you'll have to spend time picking bits of disintegrated tissue out of your teeth. Brushing the product on is easy enough, but it does not have a pleasant taste (I expected it to taste like mint- it does very slightly, but tastes predominantly of something chemical) and has a rather strange smell that reminded me a bit of varnish. It's quite hard to know when to apply the second coat, too, as it's difficult to know when your teeth are dry.
Once it's on, the results are not good. I found that my teeth didn't look much whiter but they did have a hint of glitter. Glitter!!! Very weird, as I can't think of any occasion when it would be good to have glittering teeth. All I can think is that someone at Pearl Drops took the idea of having sparkling white teeth a bit too literally. I didn't like the feeling of this product on my teeth either- it just felt like I needed to give my teeth a really good brush.
I think the best thing I can say about this product is that at least it brushes off... and makes you appreciate your normal, non-glittery teeth.
I am always on the look out for quick fixes to get white teeth and although my teeth aren't stained as such, they are a little discoloured and I know they are not as white as what they could be. I came across this in Boots the other day where it cost around £9 and rather than buying it I decided to come home and check out some reviews on it first, which I have to say weren't too positive ad many people had given this product just one out of the five stars. Though, when I saw the same product on eBay at £5 including postage which was almost half of its RRP I decided it may be worth a go!
It comes in a fairly small clear tube, which is rectangular in shape with a silver lid. It could easily be mistaken for a lipgloss, except for the fact that the item is clearly white in colour. The instructions were easy to follow and came on a leaflet within the box. You simply had to wipe your teeth with a tissue or something similar in order to remove any moisture and then apply the 'brush on tooth veneer' to the teeth. The item itself had quite a menthol smell to it which was nice and refreshing and once applied I could taste this menthol smell in my mouth, however, at the same time it also did taste a little bit 'chemically'.
The brush on veneer had a little brush which you used to apply, very similar to that of a lip gloss brush. You then simply brushed this over the teeth as desired. I did find that I had to do this fairly quickly as the veneer was very runny and as you were using the brush upside down I did often find the veneer would run down the brush before I had a chance to apply it.
I applied it to both my bottom and top teeth, though I did find it more difficult to apply it to the bottom teeth and have not continued to apply it to them as my bottom teeth don't tend to show much and it is easier not to apply it to them. Once applied the veneer dries in seconds and the first time I used it my teeth felt fairly uneven, as if I hadn't brushed them, which wasn't too pleasant. I also noticed that the veneer looked uneven, where my teeth appeared to be white in some areas and the same colour in others. After a couple times using this I discovered that I was actually applying too much to my teeth- in an extra bid to make my teeth whiter I had actually overused the product.
It looks much better when you use a thin coat on each of the teeth, which depending on width/size of the teeth is around 2-3 quick brush strokes. This also kept the teeth feeling and looking smooth too.
~~Did it work/look any different~~
I have to say that I disagree with many of the other reviews in that I found that this product did work for me! It definitley improved the overall colour of my teeth, I would say it lifted the colour of them by 3 or so shades and they looked white opposed to a discoloured white. Though they did look white, it was still a natural colour (despite the fact I used the 'Ultra one') and it didn't look too obvious that I had anything on them.
If I only applied it to my top teeth then when comparing it to my bottom teeth I could definitley see the difference and it was easily noticeable. The only thing that bothered me is that when you look very closely you can tell that the brush on veneer does not reach te very top of the teeth and so there does seem to be a coloru gradient there. Though I have tried to fix this by applying the veneer higher, I then find that the veneer bleeds into the gum lines, making it even more noticable. Though I have to say this was only when looking at my teeth very closely and I doubt that anyone else would notice.
~~How long did it last~~
It states that it lasts until you eat a meal or brush your teeth. I would say that this is true, however, I did find the product a little stubborn to remove and did not find that it came off when I ate a meal and it was pretty stubborn to remove when brushing my teeth - even with an electric toothbrush!
Now although this was good as it meant it stayed in place all day, I would have liked it to be a little more easy to remove when I wanted to do so.
Overall, I really like this product and would reccomend it. It definitley worked for me and I am continuing to use it daily. The only thing that could have made the product better for me is for it to actually whiten teeth overtime, rather than it just being a brush on tooth veneer. I'm not sure how well it would work on severly discoloured / stained teeth however if they just need a bit of a brighter/whiter look than I would say this is the product for you!
I have used Pearl drops products for many years now and have usually been very happy with the results. I am always trying to keep my teeth looking clean and as white as possible, without resorting to bleaching and whitening kits.
When I saw this advertised, I just had to try it and went to get one on my next shopping trip. It wasn't cheap, I believe I paid about £6.98 for it and what a waste of money it really was.
The product is a small tube, similar to a tube of lipgloss and comes with a small brush applicator. The idea is to dip the brush in and then remove it and gently brush the white liquid over the fronts of your teeth. This should leave you with the look of white teeth untill you clean your teeth. This really appealed to me for when I have a night out with my friends and want to look as good as possible. The tube is only 5ml and is small enough to fit inside any handbag and ideal for nights out, or so I thought!
I used this three times (just to make sure) and then threw it out. I painted the product onto my teeth, which had just been cleaned and were dry and shiny. I put a really thin coat on the top and bottom teeth and then let it dry. As it dried it started to go all streaky and looked as though I had something wrong with my teeth. The feel was horrible too, like grit all over the front of the tooth surface.
I tried it again and again thinking that perhaps it was something I was doing wrong, but no matter how thin a layer I applied, the same thing happened everytime. So rather than making my teeth look better, I actually looked and felt like I had some mad mouth disease or problem.
I would not reccommend this to anyone and if I could give it no stars I would.
I have really bad yellow fangs, so I bought the extreme white version, not the natural one. Before I go out on a night out, I brush my teeth, dry my fangs with a tissue, shake the pot well, dab off the brush inside the pot thoroughly, and paint just one or two thin layers on each fang, and they turn to the same colour as my other teeth!
It really works, it's fab! However, a few things:
Before my new routine, I literally used to just slap it on, and it went all uneven, crusty, dry, disgusting, and it just looked like you hadn't brushed your teeth. So ensure to follow the steps!
BUT BE WARNED!!!!!!!! YOU CANNOT HAVE COLOURED DRINKS!
On a night out, I had a sip of my friend's cherry VHF, and my fangs went PINK!!!! Even a sip of a J2O will do this! Stick to coke and lemonade! This problem aside, it's a good product, not great, not for every day use cos you can't NOT have an Oasis, J20, etc... So for the rare photo opportunities, it's good!! Brushes off when you brush your teeth with no problem. Doesn't smell, doesn't taste weird. If or when this product gets reduced on promotion, I would snap it! But until then, at £6+ I don't think it's QUITE worth it. £3.50, yes.
Pearl Drops - Instant White Natural, Brush on Tooth Veneer
What is it?
A cosmetic liquid that is used to paint a 'veneer-like' layer onto your teeth to create a whitened effect.
The white liquid forms a coaing on your teeth that dries in seconds to give a natual-looking white veneer. It will remain on your teeth until you brush t away with a toothbrush or when you eat a meal.
What do I think?
No, no, No!!!!
Please do not buy this as it does not work. A few of my teeth are pitted and stained, and I thought I'd try this. I saw an advert for instant white toothpaste from Pearl Drops and when I saw this next to them, just after a second of reading the description I threw four of these into my basket - they were £7.99 on a 'Buy-One Get One Free' promotion - and now I know why!
The liquid is quite glittery with a greyish beige tinge - applying it to my teeth as instructed, visibly it didn't really show anything. It looked as if I was applying some glittery lip gloss onto my teeth. I applied a few more layers, and still the stains could still be seen although slightly covered by the flimsy 'coating' that felt grainy and crumbly, didn't dry properly and formed clumps on the surface of my teeth. It just looked as if I had more stains on my teeth but in a beige kind of colour!
I could not believe this, just trying it once and I knew I had wasted my money. I have also read other reviews on this and it is just as bad. There is also the 'Ultra White' version where the liquid is whiter, but this still the same but with white streaks, I will also be reviewing this later on.
I really don't understand at all what the glittery bits are for, I think it would have worked better as a lip gloss. I didn't even have to wait to brush it off, after eating, it automatically crumbles away, but still some of is left on your teeth and around your gums, and it does really look as if you haven't brushed your teeth for days...this is so awful!
£7.99 for a 6ml tube - I cannot believe this! Not even worth 99p!!
PLEASE DO NOT BUY!
Thanks for reading.
I admit I am slightly obsessed with my tooth care regime and I like to try all the new and exciting products that come onto the market.
When I saw this product advertised, i thought it sounded too good to be true.... and frankly it was!
The rectangular shape tube comes with a brush applicator in the lid, it resembles a lip-gloss actually.
For 5ml the average price i have seen in several stores is £7.99, online it is available slightly cheaper but obviously you have to add on postage.
The directions are clear and are printed on the side of the tube for future reference- this is probably the only good thing about it!
simply shake well, apply to dry teeth, apply a thin layer to the teeth you want to be whiter, leave to dry and apply another layer if a whiter look is desired.
In theory, fool proof right?.... NO!
If you apply just a tiny bit too much of this product then it all gathers along the gum line in little white clumps (YUK!)
If you don't apply enough, you can not see any difference.
Once the perfect balance of product has been achieved, don't get too excited- on the larger front teeth the product (majority of the time), goes on well, with ease and has a nice smooth white finish. On the smaller teeth it is near impossible to get that even finish! Streaks, missed bits, clumps on the gum line, its simply AWFUL and to top it off leaves a horrible texture on your teeth as if they haven't been brushed!!
Not only that, it stings! It stings your gums and if a drop goes on your lip that stings too! I'm all for the 'no pain, no gain' approach but the only gain out of this is dental disaster!
If you are a genius at applying this and do miraculously get that gorgeous white even look that is promised, then again- don't get too excited! It doesn't last long, after eating and drinking you will need to reapply, an ordeal that is not really possible in a public toilet!
On the positive side, as hard as it is to think of any, the product easily comes off with brushing (as well as eating and drinking!) and the directions are clearly printed on the side of the pot... That's all I'm afraid.
The only eventuality that this may come in useful is if you are having a photo shoot and want that Hollywood smile! (Just make sure you have had plenty of practice applying it beforehand!)
Personally I'd suggest Photoshop as an easier alternative!
As you can imagine, I am not going to recommend this!
The adverts for this product imply that you add this polish to your teeth and it instantly makes them look whiter. Sort of like tip-ex for your smile. I have to confess I was sceptical. How can it work? But then I was won over by the whole tip-ex idea. It must just be paint for your teeth. Just like you do on your nails, surely?
So I purchased this when it was on offer in Boots for £4 instead of the usual £8 price tag. I was again seduced by the fact that no company could charge £8 for somehting if it wasn't going to be great?!
The packaging is ok, it's pretty standard. The actual product comes in a lipgloss-esque bottle and has a s=whitey-silvery appearance.
So once home I popped the stuff on. It is supposed to be like a veneer - so a coating over your tooth. Just like nail polish is to the hands, this should be to the mouth. You have to prep your teeth by making sure they are clean and dry. Sounds random to have dry teeth, but I obeyed the instructions.
The taste is the first thing I noticed. Minty. Fresh. Just like toothpaste. Then I noticed the really dry sensation that it adds to your teeth. They felt like they had a coat of plaque on them, very dry plaque. But I persisted with it. I wanted the white teeth the girl in the advert had.
I allowed it to dry, wandering around with a creepy grin on my face to let the air dry the product. And back to the mirror I went....
What's that I see - are my teeth... glittery? Seriously? Yes, that's right - they were covered in glitter. So not only were they still their same colour, but they looked like I'd had a field day with glitter glue. If I wanted to put make up on my teeth then I would don some bright red lipstick and just go to town and smear it all over the place. I wanted white teeth. They promised white teeth!
My lips were catching on my teeth all the time because they were so dry. But maybe I didn't apply enough? So I applied another layer. Yet more glitter and dryness.
I very quickly brushed my teeth to remove this vile stuff, and was relieved to feel my mouth return to normal! So one good thing - it's easily removed! But that's it. I think if you want the white teeth like the girl in the ad - go have your teeth bleached, because she must have.
Pearl Drops Instant White Ultra is a brush on tooth veneer costing £7.99 from Boots and Superdrug. Comparing this to a real set of veneers there are obviously huge cost differences but after trying many different tooth whitening products, how would this compare?
For your money you get a 5ml bottle which is roughly the same size as a lipstick or bottle of lip gloss so it is very easy to carry around when out and doesn't look out of place in a make up bag. People will only begin to wonder what it is when applying it.
I've used Pearl Drops Whitening Toothpaste in the past but the results never lived up to my expectations so I wasn't expecting much from this product. Although it says on the front of the box 'To remove, simply brush off with a toothbrush at the end of the day' it has on the back 'or until you eat a meal' so my opinion of the product did go down a little as I did wonder if this would be more like a cheap nail varnish which would chip easily.
The smell of the product is minty but I was put off by it also smelling like Tippex. Luckily it's only the mint that I can taste in my mouth after applying it. When I first got it I did have to press the brush up against the side of the bottle to separate the bristles a little as they were a little hard. I do like the brush as there is a decent length to the lid to hold onto it firmly when applying and the length of the stick the brush is on isn't overly long so it is easy to use for precise application.
To use you need to make sure teeth are clean and dry them with a tissue then apply a thin layer of the liquid which dries in seconds. It also adds on the bottle that a second coat can be applied for a brighter result.
As this is the 'Ultra' rather than the 'White Natural' I had high hopes for sparkly white teeth. I was disappointed on first application as the liquid is very thin so there wasn't a noticeable difference. I usually apply more than one coat but the result is always the same - it does noticeably whiten my teeth but when you look closely it looks very grainy, matte and uneven. Running my tongue along my teeth I can feel it on my teeth. I have to watch applying it too close to my gums because it does seem to end up thicker and can make my gums feel very sensitive with the coolness of the mint and it will gather between my teeth.
My teeth are not badly stained but I do like my coffee so although there was a noticeable difference it was disappointing that the result was so uneven and like I had bad teeth. I had photos taken and my teeth looked amazing in those that weren't quite in focus but horrible in the close ups. This product is really only going to benefit those with white teeth already or teeth that are not badly stained so it won't look obvious the colour is different underneath.
Drinking while having Instant White on is fine. I've drunk everything from coffee to Diet Coke and never had a problem with it coming off. It's not a good idea to drink too quickly after applying though as the minty taste mixes with it. If I scratch the surface of tooth with a nail then it will begin to peel but it overall it does stay on my teeth and seems more of a precaution with the eating as I have managed to eat and not had any come off.
So would I buy this again? No. I would invest in buying products that whiten my teeth permanently instead of having to worry about it chipping or looking uneven. I do like the colour as it's not ridiculously white but it's really just not worth the hassle.
I have previously used the orginal pearl drops which retail at £1.99 (or a bargain hunter like me gets at the pound shop!) and I have used that over a long period of time and found that my teeth became whiter over time and I was very impressed... and when I saw this product, Pearl Drops Instant White, I must admit I thought for the price that it would do an amazing job. But I must admit I was disappointed as I found it was as effective as the cheaper version and not more so. It came with a chart that showed the the different levels of whiteness and I must say I got very frustrated with my chart because I didn't see any difference over a prolonged use and it was very difficult to see how white your teeth are from a chart like that. My advice if you want sparkling white teeth is to go to a professional and if your satisfied with your teeth being a little bit whiter then use the cheaper version
I should have known just by the price of this product at around £8 that a miracle wasn't going to happen esp when you have to pay hundreds of pounds to have your teeth whitened by proffesionals. My teeth aren't that discoloured so I thought I would give it a go to see if it would brighten them up a bit so after following the instructions of brushing my teeth then drying with a tissue I applied the product. Although it is easy to apply and dries pretty quick, it goes on and dries streaky and round the sides of your teeth and in between where you can't reach with the brush you can still see the original colour of your teeth. I tried to apply another coat when the first one had dried but this just made it look worse. I wouldn't recommend wasting your money on this product
I must admit to having always fancied a 'Hollywood smile'. I did see Pearl Drops Instant White advertised on t.v. and it looked great but it wasn't till I was in Boots before Christmas, that I decided to buy it. I wish I hadn't bothered and had saved the £7.99 instead.
The instructions seemed so easy to follow. I brushed my teeth, then took a tissue and dried them. It is surprisingly difficult to keep your teeth dry!
I applied a thin coat of Pearl Drops Instant White, which looks just like nail varnish. It comes in a small 5ml bottle, with a brush for application.
The Instant White went on like cheap nail varnish, it was sticky and did not go on smoothly at all. My teeth looked streaky, far worse than they had done before the application. They felt strange against the inside of my lips, quite lumpy in fact. It was also not long before it started to chip off again and I could not stop myself from starting to pick at it. In the end I just brushed it back off.
I did give it one more go but I could not get this product to work at all.
I found this product very poor and a complete waste of time and money. I definately would not recommend it to anyone.
*-* Introduction: *-*
Unfortunately I have not got bright white teeth that look so good on these celebs, I have tow major vices: fizzy pop and smoking. Both which are not great for the colour of my teeth and after years of doing both og the above my teeth are a bit yellow to say the least. Now I like to take pride in my appearance and not having white teeth is something that annoys the hell out of me all the time. So when I saw the adverts for this product on TV I really wanted to try it out, luckily the very next day I was shopping in town and noticed a small version of this product on the shelves in the 99p store so in my basket it went.
I must admit I was sooooo hoping that this would be the answer to my prayers and work were as so many other so called "whitening" products had failed in the past. But unfortunately all it achieved was me looking stupid and my little brother having a great laugh at my expense.
*-* You Want Me To Paint My Teeth? *-*
The way you are supposed to use this well "toothpaste" is first brush your teeth with it as usual and then dry them with a tissue. Then you start to paint this solution onto your teeth. This part isn't as hard as it sounds it took me about 1 minute to paint on, although getting on the teeth further to the back is a bitch!
*-* What Is This S**t? *-*
After application while I was waiting for it to dry or sink in or whatever the hell it was meant to do when I caught a look at myself in the mirror and nearly cracked up laughing at myself. It looked as if I had painted my teeth with nail varnish and they looked utterly ridiculous! Trust this to be the time my little brother walks into the bathroom and cracks up laughing so judging by that reaction I did look as stupid as I thought I did.
*-* Getting It Off *-*
I then had to brush my teeth twice with my normal toothpaste to get rid of this shiny nail varnish colour off my teeth, even then I still felt glittery and shiny so all I can do is thank god I didnt leave the house with this on!
*-* Overall Opinion: *-*
If I'm honest I would rather have yellow teeth than use this again. I had really high hopes for this product because I had heard pretty great reviews about it and I thought something that is normally so expensive has got to good. But as soon as I spied on the shelf in that 99p store I should have known what the quality of the product inside would be like. Unless you like looking odd and shiny I do not recommend you waste your money on this, even 99p was to much to spend on it. Stay Away From This Paste!

I saw lots of adverts on the TV for this product. It's basically a group of girls looking amazingly happy as they paint their teeth with a weird looking substance. Making their teeth bigger and whiter than ever! I turned to my boyfriend to let him know I needed it, he claimed I didn't and I'd get bored of it after a few uses. But I'd use it everyday, and everyone would think of me as the girl with the really nice shiney teeth. So off to Boots we went.
:: The Packaging ::
Pearl Drops Instant White comes in a square bottle, quite like lipgloss. The bottom part is clear so you can see the product inside and the screw off lid is mirrored plastic.
On the front, in a very hair to read mirrored font it says 'Pearl Drops Instant White' and a little cartoon tub stating the product has a 6 month lifetime. On the back in the same hard to read mirrored font are the instrutions.
The brush itself is just like a lipgloss brush when they use bristles. So even though the product itself is something quite unique, the packaging gives it a familar feel.
:: The Product ::
The paint on veneer is a very watery liquid, filled with what looks like glitter. It has a minty almost alcoholic smell to it, although my boyfriend said he could only smell mint so that just might be my nose!
:: Overall ::
The first time I used the product I found it quite awkwardly painful, you have to dry your teeth before applying and for me, this meant manically grinning for about a minute while I dried my teeth, applied the product and let it dry. Turns out, smiling like a crazy lady really hurts! I have to say, unlike in the advert, you look anything but glamorous while I applied this as I took to holding my top lip out with one hand while I did the rest of the work with the other. Attractive, I know.
You really do notice the difference after using this product, your teeth noticeably whiter with one coat and rather Hollywood with it. I did find the paint on veneer did give my teeth a funny feeling, quite bumpy in places which I can only assume is the glittery bits in the mixture. I do find this a small price to pay for pearly whites.
It hurts to say this, but my boyfriend was right. Although I was pleased with the results it's oddly difficult to apply and you can get the same results from just brushing your teeth twice a day with typical Pearl Drops toothpaste.
Currently £7.99 in Boots - I'd say it's highly overpriced but if it's Pearly Whites you're really after, it might be worth it for you.
Get the white smile that gives you confidence!
