I had bought this on offer in Asda just to give it a shot, I didn't expect gleaming one use results, and neither were my teeth particularly dirty or yellowed but pregnancy had taken its toll on them for sure. I have been looking at alternatives to using the whitening strips that were hurting my nerves, anyhow, I used this morning and night until I had come to the end and I'd say in all honesty my teeth did look one shade whiter than when I started using it but they were much more sensitive than when I'd started.
I've since read that it can be used after brushing, which is probably what I'll try next as I've not totally given up on it just yet!
The tube itself is elongated and the paste is blue in colour and not strong tasting at all, compared to regular toothpaste. I brushed morning and night as directed (although not for under 7's, I'd suggest they change that to adults only considering how sensitive I feel its made my teeth!) I also used it in place of my regular toothpaste, I'd say it lasted 4-5 weeks, and daily I didn't notice a change but comparing the colour I'd marked on the handy free chart that came with it I did notice they were a shade lighter than when I'd started.
Although this product isn't brilliant, and didn't seem as protective as my regular toothpaste, I'd recommend it if you aren't after huge results and in conjunction with your regular paste for a little white top up.
i bought this thinking that it wouldnt really work,but after just 1 week of use my teeth looked a shade lighter! excellent product and well worth the money! id highly recommend to them that smoke or them that take extra pride in their teeth. obviously this will never get your teeth GLEEMINGLY white but it gets them white enough! also the taste isnt too strong either! only downfall i had was that it feels quite powdery after youve brushed and rinsed your mouth, but if this doesnt bother you then go ahead and purchase it!!;) m
According to social psychologists the first thing we notice about people we meet are firstly their eyes, then their teeth and I have to agree. I took the time to take a long hard look at my face for the first time in ages and decided that there was not a lot I could do about my eyes (apart from eye brightener and eye make up) but I could perhaps do something about the colour of my teeth?
I have always had a dread of losing my teeth so have taken pretty good care of them brushing twice a day, using mouthwash and floss daily and keeping appointments at the dentist but I drink loads of tea and coffee so my teeth, although not yellow, are more of a cream colour. I use fake tan which tends to make teeth look whiter I think but, let's face it, this hot summer is not going to last and I will soon be back to being paler.
I decided to have a go at using a whitening toothpaste and was surprised at the choice available but in the end I went solely on price as I saw this Pearl Drops Hollywood tooth polish on offer for £3 instead of £5.50 because the box was damaged.
The polish is 65ml and comes in an elongated triangular tube which stands on its lid. It is a blue gel which tastes a little minty and fairly thick so easy to apply to the toothbrush even though the plastic is more rigid than the usual toothpaste tubes. It is advised that you brush daily either after, or in place of your normal toothpaste. I was a little reluctant to use this instead of my trusted Colgate so I use this after brushing.
The Pearl Drops range was apparently developed by a dentist and contains fluoride 'to strengthen tooth enamel and protect teeth against decay'. The information tells me that there are no harsh abrasives, bleaches or acidic pH but should not be used by children under 7. There is a list of ingredients which include a number from the sodium family but nothing else makes any sense to me so am unsure what active ingredients are responsible for the whitening claims.
I have to say that the polish is good to use and my teeth feel squeaky clean and I have noticed a little difference in the colour of my teeth when I have checked them against my tooth colour chart (about 2 shades lighter after 6 weeks) but the difference is not spectacularly Hollywood in my opinion.
Hmmm now the star rating .... well, the tooth polish itself is nice enough and I have noticed a difference in the colour, the price is fair, it cleans well, but it is not an amazing whitener in my experience ..... so I will give it 3 stars because the packaging seems to claim better results.
I used to smoke and drink black coffee, so needless to say my teeth were not as white as they could have been (I have since given up both of these!) They were not brown or hideous but I noticed them and didn't like it. I had heard about Peal Drops before and although I hadn't used them, seeing this 'Hollywood - Instant Whitening Toothpolish' Sounded too good to be true. After all who wants to wait for results? No-one, we all want a quick fix to problems that have taken months to happen.
I am no exception, I wanted quick results and this product clearly states that it will provide this for me. I am one happy girl, the container is a Colgate minty gel colour and it stands upside down on its white screw lid. On first use, the taste was not unpleasant or overpowering; it didn't linger for long either though. I brushed with it and was a little put off with the consistency, it is quite thick but has a bitty, chalky consistency, difficult to describe but again it is not that off putting. I used this polish twice everyday along with my usual toothpaste and awaited the instant results.........surprise, surprise there are no instant results.
All in all I used the product till it ran out, I didn't miss a brushing with it but I did not notice any improvement with the colour, I would like to say it did get a little bit brighter but I am unsure it did. I will give it full marks for the clean, it does make the teeth feel shiny and new, maybe that is the bitty texture working, but on actually whitening, it fails badly. I haven't used the original Peal Drops, but if the super duper version does nothing, I won't hold my breath that the basic will fare any better. To actually get rid of coffee and smoking stains, the tip I found that actually worked really well was to give up both! Amazing!
I am always on the look out for products which whiten my teeth. I have tried many products, from toothpastes to gels in order to get close to a perfect white smile. The main reason I use and try these products is that to get my teeth whitened professional in a dencist would cost quite a lot of money, that I don't have.
Drinking a lot of teas and fizzy drinks, my teeth are quite a yellowish colour. Now I do have to say my teeth aren't yellow and falling out of my head... but they are not as white as I would like. Beofre using this toothpaste I hadn't used Pearl Drops products. I saw this one day when I was shopping in Superdrug and I was imeditly attracted by the writing on the tube. "Pearl Drops HollyWood. Instant Whitening Toothpolish."
I have to say after using this product for a while now, actually my tube is empty now. But the statement on the tube, which states that it is "instant" and I have to say honestly that this is not true. There is no instant results after using this toothpaste, and aside from being a nice minty toothpaste, that is all this product has going for it.
The toothpaste itself is a light blue colour and it mint flavour. You can also notice some slight shimmer within the toothpaste, which are 'diamond stars' as Pearl Drops call them. And I can only assume these stars are meant to add to the whitening affect to your teeth.
At the time when using this toothpaste I was not using any other teeth whitening products, in order for me to see the full affects this products whas going to have on m teeth. I used this product on my teeth for aslong as it was stated on the back of the tube, which is twice daily for two weeks.
So would I recommedn this product? Well as a teeth whitening product no.. because sadly I didn't notice any effects on my teeth after use. But as a normal toothpaste, this would be great as it did leave my teeth lovel a squeaky clean. I have to be honest and say, I won't be purchasing this one again!
Thanks for reading!
