When it comes to my mouth I'm very into my oral hygiene. I spend a fortune on this, that and the other as I am a smoker but also because I have eroding tooth enamel as I have an eating disorder which I have had now for years.
I hate the thought of discoloured/stained teeth on top of teeth losing their natural shine and colour that teeth should be so the other day when I spotted this smokers gel in my local pound shop I thought that this may not only be abrasive enough to remove nasty discolouration and stains but that it may be gentle enough not to harm my enamel either!
The tube of toothpaste comes in a light blue and white oblong cardboard box and on three sides of the box we are told that it is Pearl Drops Smokers Stain Removing Whitening Gel 'Dental Health Formula' and that it is 'Breath Freshening'. On the back of the box other information listed includes being told a bit about the product and what to expect from it, ingredients are listed as is the size which in this case is 50ml (and the only size I have seen this available to purchase in by the way) and contact details for Church & Dwight are given (the manufacturer of the product). The tube is white and blue plastic with all the same information on it as is on the box with a screw on/off cap/lid to one end of it and it is a squeezy tube. Nice packaging and it is informative enough of course.
A Bit About The Product According To The Information Given On The Packaging:
Pearl Drops Smokers Stain Removing Whitening Gel is a dental health formula specially developed for smokers. It contains micro-polishers which effectively but gently help remove nicotine, food and drink stains, and plaque and help restore teeth to their natural whiteness and shine. Plus it contains fluoride and tartar-control agents for healthier teeth and gums when used everyday. And its extra fresh strongmint flavour will give you the confidence of really fresh breath for longer.
Well all do with this toothpaste of course is to use it as you would any other kind. Simply squirt some of the blue, transparent and rather thick gel on to a brush and off you go! It has a really fresh, slightly hot sweet taste of mint and is smooth and feels refreshing in the mouth and it really doesn't feel abrasive at all. It leaves me with fresh breath for a good hour after using it, clean, smooth feeling teeth and overall a clean mouth.
The biggest question though I guess is does it work and I have to admit that since using this twice a day for the past three weeks my teeth don't look quite so dull anymore, I have no fresh stains appeared and can't see any plaque forming (I did have my teeth professionally cleaned just before using this). I like the fact that my teeth appear whiter and feel fresh and clean and overall for us smokers who can't seem to quit this is a great, economical product that I will certainly purchase time and time again in the future!
Expect to pay around the £2 mark in all chemists and supermarkets for this.

I have only been using Pearl Drops smokers toothpaste for 2 months but my partner has been using it for some time. We are both smokers.
I started using this toothpaste as it was silly having 2 different brands in the bathroom. The packaging is white with a blue hase with white writing on. It is the usual sqweezy tube.
Apparantly it contains micro - polishers that help remover nicotine, food and drink stains, and plaque, and help restore teeth to there natural whiteness.
Well as a smoker, red wine drinker and having a big appertite for currys ect, i can certainly vouch for this product. I use to use colgate which although was cheaper never gave me the results i have been getting over the past couple of weeks. For the first month i didnt really notice any difference and to be trueful was going to go back to colgate. But i continued with pearl drops and have now noticed whiter teeth and less plaque. My teeth feel smooth to touch with my tounge and using it after drinking wine and eating currys has certainly helped. I use to stand for at least 5 minutes brushing my teeth morning and evening, trying to get them white as possible, but now 3 mins and im done.
The discription also says.. "extra strongmint flavour". I personnaly like a stong mint flavor and this failed to deliver that. My teeth are cleaner and whiter but i dont get that mintiness that i got from colgate. I wont be going back though, the improvemnt in my teeth is noticable and i can always use mouth wash to get my minty fresh breath.
If you try this product and dont notice a difference in a month persist with it. I did and am now reaping in the benifits.
