      Disadvantages

      A good tooth polish, gives you that after check up feeling from the dentist

      I am always on the look out for a toothpaste or tooth polish which can whiten my teeth. They are not very discoloured and although I wouldn't want to have a blinding flash of nashers like Rylan (X Factor and Big Brother's bit on the side) I would like them to be a bit more sparkling. I do drink a lot of tea and coffee at work and am also fond of the occasional red wine so any products which can counteract this are very welcome. I have used Pearl Drops when I was much younger and cannot remember much about the results then, but have started to buy it again and have been using it for about three months.

      As this is a tooth polish as opposed to a toothpaste you need to use your normal toothpaste which will get rid of tartar and help you to have healthy gums, strong teeth and fresh breath which this polish does not. I am aware that there are quite a few other tooth whitening products on the market but as I had previously used this and it is a well known make decided that this was the one I would buy.

      It is 50ml and comes in a white box with a picture of a woman's face showing her brilliant white even teeth in a wide smile and wearing bright red lipstick. The Pearl Drops logo is in a blue circle and the usual ingredients and how to use the product are displayed around the box. I am not sure if this would appeal to males as the photo is of a woman and they may think that it is specifically aimed at them, but as women are usually the main shoppers this probably wouldn't make any difference. (Apologies to the male shoppers out there!) It is not suitable for children under seven as the ingredients are not suitable for milk teeth).

      I bought my tube from Home Bargains and paid £1.29 but it is currently on offer at Boots for 99p, Superdrug for 97p and Asda for £1.00. I am sure that this used to be far more expensive than this but maybe this is because there are a lot more of these products on the market nowadays.

      The tube is a triangular shape with a triangular lid which screws off exposing a pointed nozzle with a hole about 3 centimetres where the polish comes out. You only need to squeeze the tube quite gently for a pea sized amount of polish to come out which is quite thick and stops coming out when you stop squeezing so the lid doesn't get messy. It smells the usual minty smell and also reminds me of mouthwash, especially the one you get at the dentist. It tastes pleasantly minty without being too strong and you can taste it for quite some time after brushing. The polish does 'lather up' in your mouth and you can feel a tingle against your teeth and mouth.

      I don't use it every day but would say about three times a week (or when I have time). I usually use normal toothpaste first and then use the polish straight after, but occasionally if I am going out at night will just use the polish to give my teeth a boost and just to make me feel better about myself.

      The Results:

      Following use my teeth really feel clean and I do get that smooth feeling you get from having had a scale and polish at the dentist. If I rub my tongue over my teeth they do feel very smooth and my teeth do look very clean and shiny and although I can't really say they look a lot whiter there certainly is a noticeable improvement. I would say that you would have to use one of the stronger applications or products if you were after a 'Rylan' smile but I like this product as it is easy to use, cheap in price and does make my teeth feel really clean and polished. I would recommend this product especially as it is so cheap at the moment but have knocked a star off as it doesn't whiten my teeth that much.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        An effective whiteninig polish for your teeth that really works!

        == Intro ==
        I was initially introduced to Pearl Drops Toothpolish by my girlfriend. I stepped out of the shower one day and saw her bottle of it by the sink, and she told me it was the best for white teeth. I've been using it ever since, and my teeth are much whiter!

        == Does It Really Work? ==
        I know that the first question on my mind if seeing this product on shelf would be, "does it really work?" and I can honestly say to you: YES, it does.

        I haven't personally used many whitening products (although I was browsing for many for a while online, trying to find what was supposedly the best) in the past, as I just wasn't that concerned about it; but anyone who drinks a lot of coffee or smokes at all can appreciate the nasty stains this can result in, and so getting rid of them, and having a brighter smile, may cross your mind!

        I can't speak on many other products as, as I say - I honestly haven't used any others, but I can say that without a doubt: Pearl Drops Toothpolish has an immediate and noticeable effect. I know because I noticed myself, and many people commented on my whiter teeth to me.

        == Is It Safe for Your Teeth? ==
        The next question that I would naturally have is whether or not a whitening product would be safe for my precious chompers...

        As far as I know, this product was invented by a dentist and is perfectly safe for your teeth.

        I have read that many whitening strips and pastes do what they do by partially removing layers of tooth enamel which is vital to the strength and sensitivity of your teeth. This product doesn't seem to do that: rather, it's just mix between a toothpaste and a polish that gently removes stains and plaque.

        == How Long Does It Take to Work? ==
        The next thing I'd definitely want to know is how long a product like this takes to work.

        Now, I've read other people say it takes three weeks or more, as well as reading this on official outlets; however I think this is an over-estimate due to the fact it may take that long for some and so they're giving the promise of timespan some realistic breathing room.

        I can say that from my personal experience, Pearl Drops appears to work within a few brushes. I don't want to be hasty and say it's literally instant, but I honestly used it for a week before people started saying my teeth looked very white (without asking / them knowing I had used it).

        == Closing Statement ==
        In terms of price I'd say that this product is priced reasonably, although there isn't a GREAT deal of toothpaste in the tube, it appears to be quality stuff (that really works!).

        Overall then, I would definitely recommend this product as a cheap, safe and very effective teeth whitening product that will take effect close to immediately. Great paste!

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          Well worth giving a go

          Despite what my dentist keeps telling me I have not stopped drinking red wine or black coffee or eating Polo mints. There is not much I can do about the effect of the mints, but the stains that the coffee and wine is another matter.


          I have tried a few whitening toothpastes from other companies but have not found one that has been as effective as Pearl Drops.


          One fear that I always had using this sort of product was the damage that would be done to the enamel but according to all reports I have seen about it, the enamel is not at risk. It still removes tartar and plague as effectively as any toothpaste and I think it has a nice taste which is not always the case with whitening toothpastes. It may be my imagination but I always think I can taste the baking powder.


          Some products available can only be used for a certain length of time but Pearl Drops does not fall into this category, but can be used a couple of times a day without risk. The only warning that I have seen in relation to this is the fact that it is not suitable for children under 7 years of age.


          It has made a difference to my teeth but I don't think it is ever going to make them as white and bright as it claims while I keep on drinking the wrong things.


          It is not classed as a prescription item, but not is it widely sold. It can be found in most chemists but not all supermarkets sell it. I normally get it from Boots where is costs £2.09 for a 50ml bottle, although I have seen it on offer and as part of the buy 2 get one free deal but not very often.


          The ingredients are all listed but as usual I have not heard of many of them and know absolutely nothing about them but here are a few, Aqua, Sodium Monofluorophoshpate, Sodium Fluoride and Pyrophosphate.


          I think it is well worth the price and it will take a good offer from another company to make me change.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          Pearl drops toothpaste

          I haven't got the whitest teeth. They aren't that bad, just a bit off colour but they really bother me. I am not a smoker, its just the natural colour of my teeth and they are not stained or anything like that but haven't previously lived in California where the white Hollywood smile is the only smile to be seen with, it has always made me quite self conscious about my smile. Over the years I have tried many products, even going so far as having my teeth professionally whitened which cost a fortune but was great and did last quite a while, and one of the products I have tried are Pearl Drops toothpaste.

          A 50ml bottle of this toothpaste costs just £2.09 so you can see compared to getting your teeth professionally done or using the more expensive gels and electric toothbrushes this is definitely one of the cheapest forms of tooth whitening.

          One of the cheapest ways of whitening or trying to whiten your teeth is by using a toothpaste. Used every day they are said to be effective at keeping stains at bay. Even tough I'm not a smoker I am definitely a coffee drinker and I do notice if I have drunk quite a lot of coffee during the day my teeth are a bit duller than usual and do need something to brighten them up. According to the packaging, Pearl Drops Daily Shine Whitening Toothpaste has a unique formula that helps to brush teeth to their brightest, whitest, smoothest and shiniest, to give you that "just from the dentist" polished feeling. It gently helps remove plaque and dull stains left by coffee, red wine, food and tobacco. This new improved formula contains extra polishing agents to smooth and buff your teeth to a shine every day.

          This buffing action however was what I had a problem with with this toothpaste and so did not really like the results I achieved with it. Some whitening toothpastes literally just strip the top layer of enamel off your teeth to remove the stains and hopefully expose a bit of better looking teeth below and this I felt is what this toothpaste was doing for me. It seemed to have rough bits in it which I felt were scrubbing my teeth and were quite harsh to my teeth and left them feeling a bit sensitive and like I had cleaned away a level of dirt but not in a good way. I really wanted to use a toothpaste that would whiten my teeth from the inside out and really change their colour, not just take away the stains so unfortunately this was not a toothpaste for me.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          See above

          I paid £1.49 for this toothpaste and I didn't mind as it's not really expensive, however I did expect the product to work. I am disappointed as it doesn't!

          I followed the instructions on the reverse of the pack and I read what the claims were. I was promised whiter and brighter teeth. Hmm. The toothpaste does NOTHING to whiten or brighten your teeth. The good thing about it is that it has a pleasant taste and foams up well in your mouth. It's easy to brush with and leaves a pleasant aftertaste in your mouth. However, it didn't live up to it's claims. Boo!

          My teeth didn't look any different to be honest and I used the toothpaste three times per day and brushed for the recommended time of two minutes. They didn't look any brighter either. They felt clean and the toothpaste seemed to clean them well, they just didn't look any brighter and they were still quite stained.

          The other good thing about this product is the price. It is good value and you only need a small amount per application as the toothpaste goes a long way. It's just a pity that it didn't remove my stains and that it did absolutely nothing to make my teeth appear any whiter. My partner seemed to fall in love with it though.

          Blanx works so much better than this stuff so I would recommend them instead.

          Doesn't do what it says on the tin! (or tube!).

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          A disappointing whitening and stain removal toothpaste

          I'm quite fanatical when it comes to my teeth and I am a little obsessed about keeping them looking white and clean. As a teenager I wore a brace and this has left me with very white teeth but because they are so straight I feel this actually emphasises my teeth hence my obsessiveness. Since falling pregnant (again) I'm making full use of my free dental treatments however there are many products especially for teeth whitening that I would prefer not to use or shouldn't use, coupled with the fact I'm trying to save a few pennies so do not want to be spending a great deal on whitening toothpastes and treatments costing over £10 for a small tube. So when browsing my local Wilkinson's store I decided to pick up some Pearl Drops Advanced Whitening Tooth Polish.


          *** Pearl Drops Advanced Whitening Tooth Polish ***
          Pearl Drops Advanced Whitening Tooth Polish is described to be !a unique 4 part whitening system which helps to polish away stains and plaque to get teeth their cleanest, whitest, smoothest and freshest"

          Pearl Drops contains fluoride to strengthen tooth enamel and protects teeth against decay. Although it claims to whiten teeth it does not contain any bleach, harsh abrasives or does not have an acidic pH.

          The product comes in a white tube which stands up and is triangular shaped and stands upright on the lid. The lid is large and screws off but needs to be screwed back on again to stand the tube up.

          The Pearl Drops Advanced Whitening Tooth Polish is sold in Boots, Superdrug, Wilkinson's B&M's, Asda, Tesco and Sainsbury's. It is available from a wide number of retailers in store and online too.

          A 50ml bottle of Pearl Drops Tooth Polish cost me £2.00 in Wilkinson's. However the same product is sold in Boots for £5.10!! Therefore this is a massive saving and it is worth shopping around at discount stores if you are looking to purchase this product. As far as tooth whitening treatments and products go this is a mid-priced product if you compare it at the price Boots sells it for with other treatments of a similar kind as many products are in the region of £10+.


          ***My Experience***
          The directions for use on the back of the tube are "for best results brush daily after or in place of your normal toothpaste".

          I used this on a morning after brushing with my usual toothpaste, so effectively I was brushing my teeth twice. Because the plastic tube is quite hard you do need to use quite hard squeeze in order to dispense product onto your toothbrush. I used the Pearl Drops Advanced Whitening Tooth Polish as I would my normal toothpaste. I dispensed a pea sized amount of the clear blue coloured Ice Mint Gel and as soon as the toothpaste was on the toothbrush I could smell this was a very minty toothpaste product.

          I brushed my teeth with the Pearl Drops Advanced Whitening Tooth Polish as I would my normal toothpaste for 2 minutes then rinsed. I did find that whilst brushing my teeth the product is extremely minty and has quite a tingly feeling my tongue and gums.

          Once I had rinsed my teeth and mouth felt extremely clean and fresh. Immediately after brushing my mouth was left tingling and had a cool icy feel to it. There was a very strong mint taste in my mouth which lasted for around 30 minutes after brushing and my breath smelt extremely fresh.

          After brushing with the Pearl Drops Advanced Whitening Tooth Polish my teeth feel very clean and smooth. I feel the product is called tooth polish as it leaves teeth with a real shine and when you run your tongue over your teeth they feel smooth. However after the first use of the product apart from the clean fresh and smooth feeling left in my mouth and on my teeth there was no noticeable difference to the colour of my teeth or an improvement in stains.

          I used this daily for a month (until the 50ml tube ran out) and I must admit I was left quite disappointed by the results. My teeth did feel cleaner however effectively I was cleaning my teeth more by using this after my usual toothpaste so I would expect this. But after using my teeth were not any whiter or I did not feel that the stains on my teeth were less noticeable.

          My teeth are quite white from previous whitening treatments and regular visits to the dentist. My top teeth are free from stains however there are a few stains on my bottom teeth from tea and coffee drinking. Many other "whitening" products have lightened these stains (only harsher bleaching treatments have completely removed them) but the Pearl Drops Advanced Whitening Tooth Polish made no difference to making these stains lighter.


          ***Overall***
          Although I felt the Pearl Drops Advanced Whitening Tooth Polish left me with fresh breath, shiny clean feeling shiny teeth I do not feel from my experience that it lives up to its claims that it makes teeth whiter and removes stains. As toothpaste this does in fact have a "polishing" effect that makes teeth have a shiny smooth appearance and feel and is very fresh. Although it does need to be considered that I was using this on top of my usual toothpaste so effectively brushing my teeth for 2 minutes longer every day, so I would have expected my teeth to feel cleaner anyway.

          However considering this product retails for £5.10 in Boots I would have been very disappointed if I had paid this amount (as opposed to £2.00) as after 4 weeks of daily use I found no difference to the colour of my teeth and did not feel my teeth were less stained looking.

          Great as toothpaste but a very poor tooth whitening product that I would not recommend.

            Advantages

            Disadvantages

            good product

            This time when my toothpaste ran out iI chose to buy Pearl drops as it was on offer at morrisons for 99p and I'm not loyal at all when it comes to buying bathroom products the cheapest will always gend up in my basket at the supermatrket and if I can find a brand name on offer then I will buy.

            Pearl drops is a teeth whitening toothpaste and can be used everyday. It comes in a box and the toothpaste is not in a tube but a little plastic dispenser bottle that stands on it's lid. I like this as there's nothing worse than tubes of toothpaste that have been squeezed and lost their lids, with this one you have to put the lid back on for it to stand upside down on it, so it stops spills and is ready to use the next time you clean your teeth.

            To apply just squeese a little line of this on to your toothbrush and brush thoroughly then rince. It says you have to use it for a week to be able to see the difference in colour to the teeths whiteness. The taste is quite mild and is a minty one.

            Does it work ? well, to be honest yes it does a good job. I noticed after the first brushing that my teeth felt smoother and although they were not noticably white the first time I have now noticed after two weeks of using this that they do seem to be whiter and they feel smoother when I rub my tongue over them.

            You can go to www.pearldrops.co.uk for more information about their products if you like.
            The bottle is a 50 ml bottle so will last for a few weeks using everyday.
            The ingredients are printed o the bottom of the box if you need to read them, but they are too many to list in this review.

            All in all I like it, I like the price I paid and I like the feel of my teeth and the look of them so for me I will be buying it again when it's on offer.

            Disadvantages

            Not worth it, and not recommended

            Recently i have found myself really wanting to find something that can polish up my teeth and get them looking whiter and just generally better, a lot of people i'm sure have the same idea otherwise there wouldn't be so many ways to get yourself a whiter and brighter star, and as far as i'm concerned pearl drops tooth polish has always had a good reputation and claims to give you a hollywood smile in 3 weeks if you use twice a day which overall gives you teeth that are two shades whiter.

            okay then, challenge accepted.

            The tube or bottle, i'm not quite sure what to call the container of the toothpaste is a triangular shape and made of plastic, its designed well because the paste doesn't get stuck at the end of a tube but slowly moves through the bottle. The container is white with the pearl drops logo on it, nothing fancy but thats not needed for a toothpaste.

            It's the name that confuses me i must say, not to be picky but every pearl whether necklaces or photos from inside an oyster are never white, they are always creamy coloured and i don't get why this brand is advertising for you to have cream teeth, i keep thinking its a hint at the lack of change this product will provide, anyway i was still willing to try it.

            Three weeks later... The polish is quite thick compared to a normal toothpaste and has blue particles in that are said to be there to polish your teeth as you brush, it also has an odd texture to it, and is quite grainy, probably because of these polishing particles, the polish is an icemint flavour which is quite nice, the polish is also said to also contain fluoride to help prevent cavities (something you would usually want from a toothpaste anyway)

            After three weeks i have to admit although its a nice tooth polish it doesn't do anything exceptional, i can say for certain my teeth have not improved by two shades even though i have marked my teeth against the provided white card so i knew what they would look like, it was disappointing to realise what a failure this supposedly great product has been. Especially considering my teeth aren't bad in the first place, i didn't need massive amounts of cleaning they are not dramatically stained and i haven't smoked so i expected better results from a tooth polish that has been developed by a 'dentist'.

            The polish isn't expensive to buy, you can buy it online for just £1 but is sold in boots for £5.10 - it is definitely not worth that.

            The polish contains: Aqua, Sorbitol, Hydrated Silica, Glycerin, Tetrapotassium Pyrophosphate, Alumina, Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, Tetrasodium Pyrophosphate, PEG-12, Aroma, Sodium Monofluorophoshpate, Cellulose Gum, Sodium Saccharin, Sodium Fluoride, Limonene, CI 77891. Contains Sodium Fluoride and Sodium Monofluorophosphate (1450 ppm F)

              Advantages

              Disadvantages

              Great as an addition to your toothpaste

              I used to drink a lot of cola and started to notice that my teeth weren't quite as white as they used to be. First thing I did was cut right back on the cola drinks and the second thing I did was took a trip a Boots to see what I could find to help make my teeth whiter again.

              There are lot's of products available to whiten your teeth but you do have to be careful as some can strip the enamel, which is more harmful. The choice was a bit overwhelming and I wanted quite a quick result. I thought about some of the tooth whitening kits that dye the teeth, but it seemed a bit drastic, so I decided to go with a whitening toothpaste instead.

              After looking at all the products I decided to go with the original pearl drops, which at the time was the only products from that company, with just a choice of flavours. At the time in cost about £3.89 which was quite a lot, as this was quite a few years back.

              I used the whole tube and did notice that my teeth seemed a bit whiter, not a false white, but it had just took out a lot of the staining from the fizzy drinks.

              The only problem was as soon as I stopped using it the stains started to creep back, slowly, but my teeth weren't as white as when I had been using the pearl drops.

              Over time they have brought out more and more products and you can now often find this particular product for a lot less and I have seen it quite a lot in the poundshop. I do still use this, amongst other products, but not as my toothpaste, as an additional toothpaste after my regular brushing.

              Advantages

              Disadvantages

              A good whitening toothpaste that actually works.

              A couple of years ago I decided to try 'Pearl Drops Party Sparkle - whitening toothpolish' out. I liked the results and could notice a difference even after a couple of uses. When I ran out I didn't buy another as I usally just buy what is on offer, and to be honest I kind of forgot about it! The other week I was in Morrisons and was purchasing a new electrical toothbrush and on the shelf below I noticed the Pearl Drops toothpolishes, and didn't have to think twice about buying a bottle. I could not find the party sparkle one that I had used before, but as I did like it I thought all Pearl Drops products would be just as good and so picked the alternative 'Daily whitening toothpolish' priced at £2.04, for a 50ml bottle.

              While this is called toothpolish, it is exactly the same as toothpaste and is used in just the same way, so when brushing your teeth you only need to use this, and do not need to use a standard toothpaste as well as this or anything - I remembered the first time I bought this I did wonder about that!
              As the bottle comes in a small cardboard box - the directions for use on the box are more simplified than those that are on the actual bottle. The box also contains more detailed information on what the product actually does and does so in four different languages, as opposed to the bottle itself.

              On thie box it states: Maintain the brightness & shine of your teeth for a great smile every day. Pearl drops Daily Whitening toothpolish helps brush teeth their brightest, whitest, smoothest and shiniest, to give you that "just from the dentist" polished feeling. It gently helps remove plaque and dull stains left by coffee, red wine, food and tobacco. This new improved formula contains extra polishing agents to smooth and buff your teeth to a shine every day. With fluoride to help strengthen tooth enamel and protect against decay. Recommend for everyday use.

              As I am big tea drinker, who drinks several cups a day, I would imagine it will stain my teeth slightly and so I need a good toothpolish like this one to help reduce the risk of that happening.

              After using this for only a couple of weeks I have noticed a change already, and did so after a few days. My teeth do seem whiter, although I am no expert so cannot tell how well it fights plaque etc. It also leaves my teeth feeling smoother than normal. I like this toothpolish for the whiteness it leaves my teeth, which a regular toothpaste does not do as well.

              After I have used this bottle however, I am going to find the 'party sparkle' version which I originally used and was the same price. I feel that that one always left my teeth quite sparkly, and this one does not at all, but then it doesn't say it will so I cannot fault this product for that reason.

              You can get this from most supermarkets priced at around £2 for 50ml, I do not think this comes in any other sizes. I bought the 'party sparkle' version from Boots a couple of years ago for the same price so if like me, you are more interested in that Pearl Drops product, then try looking in there, as I do not think Morrisons stock that particular one.

                Advantages

                Disadvantages

                Not for me

                I switch my tooth paste practically every single time I run out, and always end up going for whatever is on special offer at the time. I decided to give Pearl Drops a try as they had been recommended to me by a friend and I found their Fresh Mint Tooth Polish in Poundland, where of course it cost me just £1.00 for a 50ml bottle.

                Product description: "Pearl Drops Tooth Polish helps brush teeth their whitest, brightest, smoothest, and shiniest, to give you that 'just from the dentist' polished feeling. Pearl Drops gently helps remove plaque and brush away dull stains left by certain drinks, food and tobacco, to leave teeth feeling really clean and smooth."

                The bottle is a different design to the standard tooth paste tube, and works really well in my opinion. It sits on your bath room shelf upright, with the lid at the bottom. This allows all the tooth paste to settle at the bottom of the bottle meaning that you can squeeze it out easily, and you never have to worry about rolling or cutting a tube to scrape out the last bits ever again!

                Directions for use: Apply a large drop of Pearl Drops to your tooth brush, brush your teeth thoroughly and rinse. Use twice daily.

                The tooth paste itself is a pure bright white colour that gave me high hopes of having teeth that looked the same! It has a smooth consistency and cleans teeth gently without scrubbing or scratching at the enamel. It didn't seem to foam up a great deal and gave a smooth feeling against my teeth which did not aggravate any sensitivity.

                This tooth polish has a strong minty taste that is very harsh and synthetic. I found it was unpleasant and had to struggle for a while to get used to the taste of it without wanting to spit it out straight away. I have been using this tooth paste over the past 2-3 months and it always keeps my teeth looking clean, however I do not get that nice refreshing feeling after brushing maybe due to the thick consistency of the tooth polish.

                I do not really suffer with staining as such, but I eat a lot of sweet foods and my teeth can suffer from build ups of plaque and slight yellowing. I have not noticed an improvement to the colour of my teeth even though I have been using it twice a day, every day, and don't substitute for any other tooth paste. I have not seen any visible or obvious whitening effect after brushing my teeth with this product and I was very disappointed as I would have expected better results from using a whitening tooth paste.

                I wouldn't bother buying this tooth polish again as it has not lived up to the claims that it makes on the box. I wanted to be able to see the effects and have a brighter, whiter smile but I haven't managed it yet!

                Advantages

                Disadvantages

                A tooth polish that doesn't seem to do what it claims

                I am very aware that I drink way too much tea and coffee and working from home I feel it has made me worse than when I used to be in an office as now the kettle is literally within easy reach and I can easily make brews quicker! Because I drink a lot of tea and coffee I have found my teeth are not as white as they could be and I have found I am just not getting them any whiter looking by using normal toothpaste. I therefore decided to buy some toothpaste specially designed for this purpose and bought this one because it wasn't hugely expensive and I knew of the name.



                The packaging:
                The toothpaste or polish, as it is known, comes in a small box that is more like you would expect to find a small bottle of medicine in! The box is clearly designed to make you want to by it as the box is bright white in colour and has an image of a smiling woman on the front baring all her beautiful white teeth! The pearl drops logo is in a dark blue circle at the top and across the front is a silver banner with the word 'whitening' in bold white letters across it. The packaging certainly looks appealing and I have to admit makes you think it will work because that is how it is designed to make you think!



                Price:
                I paid just over £2 for my pearl drops in Tesco and I believe this is pretty much the average price not matter where you buy it from. So overly it is not as expensive as some others out there but, as the tube is only 50ml in size it is a little smaller than most as well on the shelves!



                Using it:
                When I started using it I couldn't just use this on it's own as I also use a sensitive tooth paste and was worried if I just reverted to this, my tooth aches and such would come back. So what I did was use this after brushing with my normal sensitive toothpaste. I was using it for a month solid before I wrote this review so that I could get a real idea of if it was working or not and after a months use you would expect to find a difference in the shade of the teeth if it was working but sadly I have not found this to be the case at all!
                Of course I had to think about whether or not by using another toothpaste just before it if it was actually stopping it working but, I feel it shouldn't have done because I always brushed and then rinsed and then used this so it was in effect going straight onto the teeth still.
                The toothpaste did froth up nicely and smelt a tiny bit minty but, other than that I wouldn't say there was anything that really stood out about it!



                Overall opinion:
                I have to say I was disappointed by this product as I was expecting it to definitely work - maybe it didn't because I used another toothpaste before it but, I feel like this shouldn't have made a difference and I guess I expected it to actually make my teeth whiter.
                I have a small bit left in the tube which I or my hubby will be using to finish off the bottle as of course I am not going to just waste toothpaste in any form however I can safely say that I will not bother buying this again and when I next look for a whitening toothpaste I will be definitely looking at other brands. Thankfully I didn't waste too much money on it and as a cleaning toothpaste I obviously am not 100% sure how good it would be on it's own, as I always used it after another toothpaste but, for the job it is advertising to do I am not really very impressed!

                  excelent product

                  I started using pearl drops tooth polish about a year ago i used to smoke and it had left staining on areas of my teeth leaving them discoloured making me feel self concious at times. A friend used this tooth polish and felt that it was very good so i began to use it. The fresh taste is fantastic and left my teeth feeling clean and smooth. It took over a period of a few weeks when i visibly became aware of how much of a difference it was making to the colour of my teeth leaving me with a brighter smile. I love that i only have to use a small amount on my tooth brush to maximise the results. My only concerns that i do have are that i have notices that my teeth are visibly thinner however, i do not know if this is a result of using this high quality product.

                  a bit disappointing.

                  I drink a LOT of tea, red wine... all bad things because they result in really unattractive yellow teeth.

                  This product from Pearl Drops is supposed to fix that, in three weeks, if used morning and night. It is designed for use instead of your normal toothpaste, but I tend to use it as well, just to make sure everything gets cleaned and the toothpolish actually works on the teeth, not the plaque/whatever.

                  So, the product. It comes in a box, which I think is a bit of a waste of cardboard. Inside is a 50ml opaque white plastic bottle with a screw-top lid on which it stands.

                  The polish itself is white with tiny blue bits that look like very fine sand. The box informs me that these are part of the micro-polishing system, and I'll take their word for it.

                  It tastes minty, but has a bit of an odd after-taste, which isn't pleasant or unpleasant, just odd. It also produces a fair amount more foam than what I am used to with normal toothpastes, and this can be quite uncomfortable.

                  All this I would very happily put up with, but although my teeth feel very clean and look perhaps a little shinier and perhaps a tiny bit whiter, the toothpolish hasn't really given me the brighter teeth it said it would. However, this may be because my teeth, on the scale, are perhaps quite a bit whiter to start with than pearl drops' target market.

                  I was disappointed, but for 99p from Amazon, it's worth a try for you, because it did help me a little.
