For my work it is important to look presentable with a welcoming smile. Being a waiter involves being pleasant and working with the public so it's probably no surprise that I'd be interested in a product that whitens my teeth and enhances my smile. It makes the experience for customers that bit more special! So naturally I have experimented with a variety of toothpastes and whitening products (without wanting to spend money on expensive clinical services) and - as you might expect - the majority of them don't really work at all. Pearl Drops, however, is the answer to the classic whitening problem.
For around £2 for a 50ml bottle, the product is perhaps on the pricey side. But a little most definitely goes a long way: I use Pearl Drops in conjunction with any other budget toothpaste. One of the reasons for this is that Pearl Drops alone tastes mildly minty and so doesn't 'feel' as effective than when it is combined with a toothpaste with a bit of a body to its flavour. The fact that Pearl Drops are far more liquid than ordinary toothpaste means that it actually makes sense to combine the whitening paste with regular paste, but perhaps it's just a comfort I have myself!
The product certainly works, however. It practically works straight away. It can be quite nice, quite liberating, the confidence white teeth gives you - it makes Pearl Drops' slightly higher price (considering the amount you get) pretty justified. As a quick sidenote I want to mention that those with more sensitive mouths may want to use the product sparingly as I do, because there must be an ingredient in the paste that irritates and dries out the skin. This only happens to me intermittently, but it's worth pointing out for anyone who has a problem with toothpastes irritating their mouths.
I used to smoke, from the age of about 13 until I was 20, after quitting I noticed how discoloured my teeth looked, it used to really bother me how yellow and unhealthy they looked so I decided to pick up a teeth whitening toothpaste.
I decided on the Pearl Drops Brand simply because I had heard they gave good results from a number of different friends, and also because it was a little cheaper than some of the other teeth whitening toothpastes on the shelf.
How to use
This toothpaste is used pretty much the same as any other toothpaste, you place a little pea size dollop on your toothbrush and brush your teeth as usual.
This toothpaste claims that it contains liquid calcium technology which helps strengthen the enamel on the surface of your teeth, making them feel cleaner and healthier and restores their natural whiteness and shine.
I didn't see results from this toothpaste straight away, but after using it for about a month, replacing it with my regular toothpaste, I found that my teeth looked much whiter and healthier. However if I stop using this toothpaste, I find that over time my teeth became a little discoloured and didn't look as healthy again, though I drink a lot of coffee so that probably causes most of my problems.
I was really happy with the results that this toothpaste gave, even though they took around a month to become noticeable, it is definitely a cheaper and safer way to whiten your teeth than using bleach or laser teeth whitening methods. Also it is really easy to do, you simply replace this toothpaste with your old one.
I bought this whitening toothpaste for £3.99 in Superdrug for 50ml, I think that this was quite a good price for this toothpaste as it works really well and a 50ml tube lasts quite a long time. This toothpaste is double the price in Boots, costing in around £8, so it is best to shop around when looking for this toothpaste.
Overall I think that this is a great toothpaste, it really does work if you give it time and it can be bought cheap enough in different shops, such as Superdrug. I liked this toothpaste and would recommend it to anyone who would like brighten up their teeth and make them whiter. I would give this toothpaste a big 5 out of 5 stars.

Pearl Drops Replenishing White Toothpaste
Description: Brand: Pearl / Type: Whitening Product / Contains liquid calcium to replenish your tooth's brilliant white surface enamel.
You can buy this toothpaste from most chemists and also some supermarkets. It comes in a pump action bottle inside a cardboard box which is predominantly white and gold.
You can expect to pay around £7.99 for a 50ml bottle of this toothpaste.
This toothpaste contains bicarbonate of soda which gives it an unpleasant taste in my opinion. It also means that when you brush your teeth with it, it doesn't froth up as much as some other brands. I found that it felt a little gritty on the teeth too, rather than being as smooth as I am used to.
To be honest, I didn't really notice any great difference in the way my teeth looked after using this toothpaste for a couple of weeks. I am not a fan of bicarbonate of soda in toothpaste and it seemed a little like my teeth did not feel as clean as they should have done. This is probably down to the fact that the taste was unpleasant rather than the toothpaste not doing its job properly.
I felt that this toothpaste was overpriced and the taste didn't appeal to me at all. I also didn't find that it made much of a difference to the whiteness of my teeth. I would have been happy to pay the extra and put up with the taste if it had worked, but unfortunately, it just didn't perform as well as I had hoped.
I will not be buying this brand again, I didn't think it was any better than any other toothpaste, and for the price, it certainly should have been! Not one to rush out and buy in my opinion.
Who in the world would not want a perfect Hollywood smile and perfect teeth. I have been trying to get one for years. Many people though have teeth that have taken a beating throughout their life through sweets, sugar, tea, coffee and general rubbish that can damage their appearance. Professional cleaning kits or treatment cost a lot of money, and we all know that for the celebrities this is easily available but not for regular people. I have found Pearl Drops to be the best readily available teeth whitening product on the market.
Packaging and price
The packaging for Pearl Drops comes in a funny little box, as it is plastic whereas many other products use a cardboard box to seal the product in. The colour used is good as the white plastic of the box and tube itself draw you to the product. I paid £7.99 for a pump tube of 50ml, and it has lasted me a long time. Initially I thought the toothpaste would not come out, as I kept pressing it and nothing would come out, but after about 10 pumps it did say on the tube it would come out. The tube is coloured in white with various information spread around the tube. A small plastic lid covers the pump.
Results and use
Even after the first use of Pearl Drops, I noticed a very significant difference in how white my teeth were and they did feel a lot smoother than before. It claims that this is due to a breakthrough liquid calcium ingredient that repairs the enamel on teeth and restores colour. The taste is unusual for a toothpaste, quite sour but it is easy to get used to this and it is not very strong. It does not produce much froth, so I do worry that it doesn't reach the ends of my teeth like normal toothpaste does. One of the main ingredients is bicarbonate of soda, which is one of the best natural methods of teeth whitening. I was really impressed with the results and for one of those more upmarket, pricier products the results really do the pricing a great deal of justification. With teeth whitening, it is hard to tell the difference when using it but I do feel it has left my teeth whiter each time I have used it.
I really do think a lot of this product and unlike some products, the price is reflected in the results. It is the next best thing to a professional dentistry whitening kit in my opinion.

Pearl Drops Replenishing White Toothpaste.....
Teeth are very important to me, not just my own but anyone's. I think that by having nice teeth it gives you a nice smile and generally makes you look better. I try to keep my teeth as white as possible and am a proud owner of a super duper electric toothbrush. I do use mouthwash and floss everyday but my main product for keeping teeth whiter than white has got to be a good toothpaste.
Now some people may think that spending nearly £8 on a tube of toothpaste is extreme but I think not. £8 for this 50ml tube of Pearly Drops Replenishing White toothpaste is a pretty good deal but at the time I purchased it (and I think the offer is on again now) it was on a buy one get one free deal. Meaning that at £4 for a large tube you are getting a real bargain.
I mainly opted for this toothpaste because at the time I was suffering a bit from sensitive teeth and thought that this may solve my problems when it replenishes the surface enamel. It seems to have worked because I have had no signs or symptoms of sensitive teeth since using the first tube some months ago. It has lasted me a good while because it is only used by me I buy different paste for both my partner and my little boy.
This toothpaste is good at whitening teeth and making them look good. it boasts on the packaging that it contains breakthrough teeth whitening technology that will knock years off your smile. It claims to contain liquid calcium that can rebuild and replenish the surface enamel on your teeth making them healthier and whiter than before.
It says that it is "The only existing anti-aging teeth whitener" and Pearl Drops contains no bleach, acidic pH or harsh abrasives.
At first I found the taste to be a little strange and not as minty as I would have liked. It did have a slight aniseed tang to it but not that over powering. I have since gotten used to the flavour and now find it very pleasant to use.
As I said before I have an electric toothbrush and this means that I only ever use around a pea sized lump on the brush. This means that the paste will last longer but even when using this amount I feel I am getting a really good clean. The paste itself doesn't bubble up too much and I prefer it this way. My teeth feel wonderful with using this paste and they are whiter than they have ever been before. I do however use a weekly treatment from Colgate so that may be adding to the whiteness.
All in all though I would say this is a pretty good whitening toothpaste. It clearly does everything that it says on the packaging and I for one would be happy to purchase it again. I do think however that it has taken me such a long time to get through the two tubes that I may try another one before going back to buying this.
Overall though I am happy to award a 5 star rating and a HIGH RECOMMENDATION. I hope this has been of some help/interest to you. Thanks for taking the time to read.
