      99p and whiter teeth! What more could you ask for?

      I found this product a few months ago in a 99p shop. I was suprised as I thought this product was generally expensive.
      I dont really like the colour of my teeth but I'm hesitant to use those bleaching packs you can buy! Pearl Drops seemed a step in the right direction.
      The Pearl Drops came in a fairly plain white box with the logo on. The bottle is similar in look and sits upside down on its lid.
      Pearl Drops can be used as a toothpaste for everyday care and whitening rather than as I thought a tooth polish. It's silly but I use regular toothpaste aswell as it just doesnt feel or taste like toothpaste to me (perhaps just because I've used Colgate since I've been about 5!).
      The toothpaste doesn't taste very nice, it has a slightly chalky, chemical taste to it and I don't like the taste it leaves in my mouth. It is not so foamy as most toothpastes a little more thick and sticky. The texture was almost a little gritty.
      As for doing its job though I'm so pleased with it. I wouldn't say you notice the difference after just one use but after a week or so of using this in addition to my usual toothpaste my teeth were looking much whiter and cleaner. I doubt this was just because I was using two sets of toothpastes as I wasn't using pearl drops for 3 minutes (after a previous 3 minute brush). I probably only added about a minute to my overall brushing time!
      As with many toothpastes the Pearl Drops last a long time as you only need a small amount and a lot seems to come in the bottle. Mine is still going strong!
      I think I got a real bargain there but knocking 1 star off for the unpleasant taste!

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      worthwhile buy, but not a quick fix

      As a big tea and coffee drinker, I do sometimes worry about staining to my teeth. I had always thought that PearlDrops was an expensive brand, so when I saw a PearlDrops whitening toothpaste in my local Wilkinson's store priced at 99p, I just had to buy it. I was dubious about whether this would work and whether I would notice much difference because I don't think my teeth are particularly discoloured, but I thought it would be nice to have them a little whiter. So, not really expecting much, I added this product to my ever growing collection of impulse buy beauty products! The toothpaste comes in an upside down triangle tube, which you should stand up on the lid, which has a round base, which Pearldrops describes as the best way to squeeze every smile out. It is mainly white packaging, with the Pearldrops logo on the front.

      When I first tried this toothpaste, I was pleasantly surprised. The taste was good, fresh and minty and the consistency was nice and thick. When I brushed my teeth with it, the product foamed up really well and left my breath smelling fresh and my teeth feeling squeaky clean. However, I did find that there was a very granular texture to this toothpaste which was slightly unpleasant. I found I had to swill my mouth out with water numerous times to get rid of this feeling. After using this product for over 3 weeks now, I think I can finally comment on the results. My teeth do look slightly whiter. I wouldn't say that this is a miracle treatment, and that every person who uses it will end up with teeth like a Hollywood star, but I do think it made a difference to the level of polishing my teeth were getting every night, which really did make a difference. I can honestly say that after using this in place of my normal toothpaste for over 3 weeks, I am more confident about the colour of my teeth. Also, even though it is not a huge tube, I have found I get a lot of use out of one tube, due to the thickness of this product. When I pick the tube up now, even after 3 weeks, I still feel like I have quite a lot of paste left, which is great considering it only cost me 99p!

      This toothpaste is available in most leading supermarkets, Wilkinson and online.

      Overall, I would recommend this, but I would watch out for the fact that although it says it is a whitening toothpaste, it is not an overnight solution and it might have different results on different people. I think it is a worthwhile buy, but like I said, not a quick fix. If you can get it on offer, like I did, I think it is worth buying.

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Good whitening toothpaste

      I use Pearl Drops Whitening toothpaste because I am not very confident about the colour of my teeth. I smoked for quite a few years and since giving up 5 years ago I still think my teeth are slightly discoloured even though my hubby tells me they are back to their previous white.

      The toothpaste comes in a plastic upside down bottle and is very gritty to use. It has a chalky mint flavour that isn't as nice as Colgate but isn't unpleasant either, it doesn't foam too much and feels thick and sticky in my mouth until I rinse. Even using a small amount as advised leaves my mouth feeling full of paste so I have to spit it out regularly but the affects on my teeth are so good that I put up with it.
      My teeth feel shiny and clean when I use this toothpaste, it's a harsh toothpaste so I use others to break up the abrasive cycle and go back to Pearl Drops for two weeks at the most every month. I don't drink or eat many things that will stain my teeth so keeping them white isn't hard work for me, I love how shiny my teeth look after I've brushed them with Pearl Drops and can tell myself that they are whiter. You used to be able to get a chart feom them that you could compare the colour of your teeth to and I use this once a month to see how clean my teeth are looking.

      The taste stays in my mouth for a long time after I've brushed my teeth and that makes my breath feel, taste and smell fresh. I had a toothache last month and using Pearl Drops to brush my teeth at that time made my tooth sore but I think that was because of how harsh and gritty it is.
      I think my teeth are definitely whiter since I've been using Pearl Drops and even though my teeth weren't too badly stained before it's got rid of the old nicotine stains that were depressing me. My teeth look healthy and clean now and when I get them bleached in April I'm going to continue to use Pearl Drops to keep them looking as good as I possibly can.

      A bottle of this toothpaste lasts for quite long because you only need to use such a small amount each time, there's only me who uses it so I get at least 3 months out of each bottle. If you used it every day the bottle would obviously go down quicker but it's only £1.75 to buy and that's a tiny price to keep your teeth in good condition.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Will be avoiding this from now on!

        Luckily I found this normally expensive item in the 99p store. I wanted to try it out as this toothpaste has an extremely good reputation for whitening teeth.

        A triangle shaped package/tube with a large screw lid, which is also used as the base to stand on. After taking off the top, the toothpaste has a long thin applicator, which is quite handy as I have an Oral B electric toothbrush, which has a rather small head. The toothpaste itself is a white liquid which is quite runny - you have to put it in your mouth fairly quickly!

        There is one major thing that has put me off this toothpaste - it doesn't foam up at all and I feel like its not cleaning my teeth because of this. The taste is very mildly minty and I'm not convinced the toothpaste is doing its job in any way! Even when rinsing, the toothpaste has disappeared completely. The whole reason I bought this toothpaste was to make my teeth whiter. I wasn't expecting amazing results...but I was expecting something! My teeth are no whiter at all; I think using just water and my toothbrush will have the same affect as this toothpaste!

        Overall, I'm glad I only paid 99p for it, as the 50ml in Boots is over £2. It may only be £2, but when there is usually BOGOF on better brands that actually work, I think £2 is a lot for 50ml!

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          Good for ulcer sufferers but not much else.

          When I lived at home we always used pearl drops. I don't anymore though as it's too expensive.

          I tend to buy whatever toothpaste is on offer now, but I must have used this brand for years before I moved into my own house, and I don't think my teeth have got any less white from not using it.

          Pearl drops is one of the more expensive brands of toothpaste, as it's a whitening toothpaste. It comes in a variety of different flavours and types, but the regular one is what we used the most. I think it retails at about £3.00 or £4.00 but it is available sometimes from places like pound shops and Home bargains for a much cheaper price, so if you like it, it's worth shopping around.

          I think the main attraction with pearl drops is that my brother and my dad both suffered with terrible ulcers with other toothpastes and pearl drops is the only one without a certain ingredient (can't remember it's name) which causes the ulcers, so if you suffer with those it's a great toothpaste.

          I found the taste of this toothpaste a bit lacking, it doesn't taste as minty and as fresh as others, and it's actually a bit gritty (I guess that's the whitening part). It does leave your teeth feeling smooth when you run your tongue over them, but doesn't make your breathe feel particularly fresh.

          The tubes it comes in are also a funny shape and it's very hard to squeeze out the last bits of it, and the nozzle is very small so it's hard to get a good amout of toothpaste on your brush.

          I used this for years, and I don't think my teeth were any whiter while using it, than they are today using other toothpastes. It definitely makes them feel smoother, but I'm not sure they looked any different.

          I would recommend this toothpaste if you suffer from ulcers as my brother and my dad swear by it, but it doesn't make your teeth noticeably whiter, and it's quite expensive unless you shop around for it.

          Good Value Product

          Pearl Drops Icemint Gel Tooth Polish 50ml

          I bought this item recently from B & M Homestores for only 99p. I was shocked to find it so cheap as I have thought about buying it before but it is nearly £5 in Boots!!

          Pearl Drops Icemint Tooth Polish offers the following results:

          Polishes and Whitens Teeth

          Contains no harsh abrasives

          Freshens Breath

          So all this for 99p

          Pearl Drops Tooth Polish offers a 4 part whitening system which helps to polish away stains and plaque to get teeth their cleanest, smoothest, whitest and freshest.

          It has been developed by Dentists and should be used daily before you brush your teeth or in place of your normal toothpaste. Contains flouride to strenghten teeth.

          This is a quick and easy to use teeth whitening product at a very good price. It is blue in colour with almost a gel like texture, it tastes okay so there is no nasty aftertaste. It can also be used instead of your normal toothpaste.

          I don't smoke, I have been using this product now for two weeks, I will honestly say my teeth are not any whiter than usual, I will say I have less tartar on my teeth now since I have started using this product. For this reason I will continue using it.

          My husband smokes - he has noticed a real difference in his teeth, both whiter and cleaner so he is going to continue using this as part of his daily dental routine.

          This product is a good buy and I think it is a very useful for smokers at a very good price.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          Product does not deliver - avoid!!

          I bought Pearl Drops years ago and wasn't impressed at all by the product, but after reading some glowing Dooyoo reviews recently and seeing it on offer at 99p in my local store, I thought it was worth another try.

          Now I am the first to admit that despite my best efforts, I don't have the whitest of teeth - too much red wine and coffee I am afraid, so any product promising me whiter teeth I have to try.

          Pearl Drops toothpolish promises whitest, brightest, smooothiest and shiniest teeth and that "just back from the dentist feeling". Just as important, it says it will help remove those tough stains to make teeth whiter.

          Well, with such grand claims, how could such a product fail? Unfortunately however it does. The first disappointment is that the bottle design is the upside down sort that you squeeze out from a nozzle and I always end up squeezing more than I need.

          The polish is much runnier than a standard paste and when applied to the teeth, there is no "frothing". My teeth as a result don't feel as clean as they do with a standard toothpaste.

          The polish I bought was advertised as "Fresh Mint" and again this was a bit of a let down. I do like a nice minty fresh taste left in my mouth, and all that this leaves is that artificial chemical taste that you get after you have been to the dentist.

          Worst of all however, I have seen no visible improvement in the colour of my teeth, so as far as I can see this is a complete waste of money (albeit only 99p). As I don't want to waste the the bottle, I am using it but only after I have already cleaned my teeth with a toothpaste, which seems to be a bit of a waste of time really.

          So thumbs down from me I am afraid - if you are after whiter teeth, or just clean feeling teeth indeed, buy a different brand!!

            Advantages

            Disadvantages

            One of the cheapest tooth stain removers but it can be hard work

            ** Pearl Drops **

            All those endless cups of coffee at work tea when I get home and red wine after dinner tend to stain my teeth. Tooth stain is one of those funny things you don't notice until you do something about it and restore them back to white. Then you realise how off white your teeth had become.

            My teeth usually need whitening about every four months or there abouts so I have experimented with a number of tooth whitening and stain removing dental products in my quest for pearl white gnashers.

            One of the cheaper products on the market to remove stains and whiten teeth is Pearl Drops. It was originally developed by a dentist to remove plaque and brush away stains. I have used it a few times on my teeth and the results are quiet good.

            It works in a similar way to a toothpaste. You squeeze the thick white spearmint flavoured Pearl Drops gel onto your toothbrush and then spend a few minutes brushing before rinsing your mouth.

            There is fluoride in Pearl Drops tooth polish but I still don't trust it as a standalone toothpaste. I use a normal toothpaste for day to day brushing. The Pearl Drops tooth polish I save for removing stains.

            Some people I know say they have had no good results from Pearl Drops but it works for me. I think it is all about how you use it. Pearl Drops doesn't come into contact with a stain and then let you easily brush it away. It won't work. My method is not to randomly brush my teeth with Pearl Drops but instead I look at my teeth closely in the mirror and identify stained areas. Then I put a healthy amount of Pearl Drops on my tooth brush and spend at least a few moments gently but persistently brushing that stained area. Small stains clear up after a few minutes. Bigger stains might persist through several assaults by Pearl Drops tooth polish and only disappear after a week or two.

            Using Pearl Drops to successfully remove stains is hard work and time consuming. But on the plus side it works and it is cheap.

            When I have a bigger budget and I want to whiten my teeth I go for the full whitening kits with gum shields and other products. But for removing stains and making teeth look whiter on a budget Pearl Drops takes some beating as long as you don't mind doing a bit of the work yourself and not expecting instant results.

            There's just one one thing I'm always cautious of when using Pearl Drops. Pearl Drops only works well when you brush a stain for minutes at a time. Sometimes for minutes at a time over a number of days. So I have to constantly pay attention to ensure that I only brush my teeth gently and never brush hard. Otherwise you may damage or wear away at your tooth enamel. So I only use Pearl Drops when I am really willing to concentrate on what I'm doing and not tired or distracted.


            ** In conclusion **

            Pearl Drops is not the easiest way of whitening your teeth and removing stains but it has to be one of the very cheapest. You can find Pearl Drops for a pound or less if you shop about. Just don't expect good results unless you work at the stains but be careful not too brush too hard or for too long.

            Thanks for reading my review,

            Mike xx

              Advantages

              Disadvantages

              a nice toothpaste but no whiter smile

              We all love to have pearl white teeth but unfortunately due to the life styles we lead our teeth become discoloured and stained every day and brushing with a regular tooth paste is not always enough to remove all of these stains so I thought I would give pearl drops ago as it claims to be able to buff and polish teeth to get rid of stains such as red wine and coffee.

              There are no harsh or abrasive chemicals in this tooth paste, it looks just like a normal tooth paste, smells just like a normal tooth paste and tastes just like a normal tooth paste the only difference I found was that it seemed more grainy in my mouth but this wasn't a problem as it wasn't left behind after swilling my mouth.

              The toothpaste comes in what I would describe as a bottle rather than a tube and has a screw off lid, it is easy to apply to the toothbrush and is more watery in consistency than my regular toothpaste.

              I paid a £1 for my bottle of this from pound land so cant complain, I have used it for 3 weeks now as a daily tooth paste as it is gentle enough to use every day and I have found it good as a tooth paste but I wouldn't say my teeth are any brighter or whiter than with my old toothpaste, it has everything I need in it to look after my teeth the same as a normal toothpaste so is in my opinion worth a go for anyone and I cant say I wouldn't buy it again but it didn't give me the pearly white teeth I was expecting

              Advantages

              Disadvantages

              Not for me, might as well to stick to the usual toothpastes :(

              I pestered my mum for these when we were in Poundland recently, lol!

              I want to try and whiten my teeth although I've never had any fillings I think they look a bit dull...

              The box said 'Pearl drops Tooth polish for whiter brighter teeth' and that's what I want so they had to be worth a try for only a pound?

              The container is a stumpy upside down shape in white plastic and the lid is on the bottom which you screw on and off. The bottle contains 50 ml which isn't a lot but it's lasted a few weeks as it says only to put a large drop ion your toothbrush then use as normal.

              The mixture containing fluoride of course is quite runny and although the taste says Spearmint it's not all that nice compared to our normal Aquafresh which is really minty.

              Pearl drops is a weaker taste and feels like it is a weaker solution that the thicker pastes we use, but it does say you will get smoother, whiter 'just from the dentist' shiny feeling from using this product. It can't be used by children under seven, I think that's because of the chemicals the product has in it.

              This toothpaste is supposed to have been formulated by a dentist to get rid of dull stains that can be left by drinks, foods and tobacco plus remove plaque as well...

              It sounded really good and ideal for what I wanted it for so I used it regularly twice a day for at least two weeks but it didn't seem to make much difference.

              My teeth felt clean but not shiny clean like the write up said, I think that bit is false advertising really! :(

              Made by Church & Dwight Ltd I was a bit disappointed, I think I expected something better, or more noticeable results than I got.

              The product is worth three stars but no more, the flavour was too weak for Spearmint and I prefer a normal toothpaste until I try another whitening one...

                Advantages

                Disadvantages

                Teeth Whitening Toothpaste

                I bought this product in Superdrug in my search for whiter teeth. The packaging I'm afraid to admit drew me in, so that obviously worked. The box, silver and sparkly though I no longer have it so cannot go into detail, definitely caught my eye.

                The bottle itself contains 50ml of toothpaste and is designed to stand on its lid. However if you choose to then it will also stand on its base, which is an oval shape and flat. The word "sparkle" is written 4 times in three different fonts on the front on the product, with the brand name "Pearl Drops" featuring quite largely at the top in a bold circle of colour. The front also has small silver stars dotted between the writing and in the background. The lid is an odd shape and hard to describe - it's wider at the base and screws onto the main bottle securely. No leaking toothpaste from this bottle.

                The content of this bottle is a mint green and can be seen very clearly through the clear plastic packaging. It does however look more like a gel than a paste. The back of the product states "Pearl drops Party Sparkle. The finishing touch for a brighter whiter smile."

                It should be used twice daily and is effectively a toothpaste or not so effectively as the case may be. On applying what is actually more like a gel than a paste, I found it sat very well on my toothbrush unlike some which decide to slip off.

                Add water and go. It tastes quite nice, very refreshing and I decided that it tastes like the red alcoholic shot Aftershock, though if you have never tasted this that's not very useful, so I will elaborate. This toothpaste has a hint of cinnamon, which is cooling and fresh. It is also clear in the smell that it is a combination of mint and cinnamon though there is no indication of its flavour on the tube. Overall it isn't too empowering and actually tastes quite nice.

                I found the product didn't foam as much as I would have liked from my toothpaste, ideal in that it isn't messy but not so good for coverage. I use an electric toothbrush and do brush twice daily. I found that whilst I could reach those "hard to reach areas" I wasn't getting that desired effect. My teeth didn't feel that clean.

                After about 10 days I had to also use normal toothpaste in addition to this whitening product. I also found that the Party Sparkle did not have any affect whatsoever on whitening my teeth. At no point have I noticed whiter teeth, and I am still using it - 3 weeks later.

                You do not receive a chart to compare your tooth colour like you do with some other whitening pastes, and do theoretically it is quite hard to compare but visually I see no change. I wouldn't recommend this product as whitening toothpaste because it doesn't feel like it actually cleans my teeth that well and it does not whiten as advertised.

                I'm inclined to try a different product but before I do so I will be hunting around for some reviews on it, which I didn't do with this one. This one was quite cheap and stood out. Not always the best way to buy a product.

                  Pearl Drops are a brand that have leapt on the band wagon of the epidemic of whitening teeth and claim to whiten teeth at a fraction of the cost of a dentist.

                  They are bought ion a small carboard box and very distinctive in that they are not it a standard tube. They are in a small trangular bottle with a large flared out lid. This does allow all the toothpaste to be ready at the bottle neck, which can be good but sometimes comes out too fast and dribbles down the lid making it sticky (and leaving toothpaste circles on surfaces).

                  The paste is white and doesn't seem anything unordinary aside from being a little more liquid than many others. It feels normal on the teeth although I didn't find it lathered much.

                  At first I didn't find there was much change at all on my teeth. However after using twice a day for around 10 days it did slightly lighten the shading. I hope it will continus to do so as although it's not as fast as I wish, it does make a difference - especially given my coffee intake!!!

                    a good whitener for teeth but doesnt last long and is quite expensive.

                    This is a specialis toothpaste which claims to brighten your teeth and make them much whiter. I thought I would try it, as I would love to have really white teeth like all the celebrities do, but dont want to part with the cash of having it done professionally.
                    The pearl drops brand is relatively new yet is expanding into more and more products such as mouthwashes, gels, toothpastes etc.
                    The original toothpaste they do comes in a small tube which stands on its head and has a flip down cap. It costs around 4.00 for a small tub.
                    You simply put a pea sized amount on your toothbrush and brusgh as normal. I usually use this at night and use my normal toothpaste in the morning, as the flavour of pearldrops is nto as refreshing at other toothpaste and not as good at keeping gums healthy as its really just a whitener.
                    After a couple of weeks of use, your teeth look much whiter and its quite surprising! The only thing is you have to keep it up as the moment you stop using it, your teeth become duller again. I am not sure how it works but it does seem to do the trick. I didnt notice any sensitivity wiuth using it either unlike some of the other whitening toothpastes I have used.
                    I really like it, and if used regularly you do notice a difference.

                    Worth a try definitely!

                    Pearl Drops is my favourite brand of toothpaste. Not only is it attractive- the packaging is really unique and catches your eye on the shelf, but it does the job properly as well. I drink alot of coffee and Coke so of course sometimes my teeth get a few stains, so when I spot these I bring out the Pearl Drops and after a few days my teeth are back to normal. I love this stuff, it is a little bit pricey but not too much, I get it from Poundland or the 99p shop when it's in there, so if you look around you can get plenty of good deals. The taste is really addictive as well, I always want to brush my teeth again when I have finished. Don't let the price put you off if you're buying it from Boots or somewhere, give it a go just once and you won't regret it!

                    a treat for my teeth when its on offer

                    my favourite toothpaste by far, i first used the pearl drops toothpaste about 15 years ago when my parents had run out of my 'normal' toothpaste they said i would have to use their 'special' toothpaste, .... special because they were both smokers and i was always told that it was only for adults who smoked.. i now realsie they wouldnt let me use it as it was expensive. anyways back to my 'first time' the moment i used it i knew no other toothpaste had ever got my teeth feeling so clean, it gives the same feeling as just having had a descale and polish with the hygienist. ive tried various other brands over the years but still havent found another that even comes close to the just polished feeling i get when i use pearl drops. it is very expensive so dont use it all the time, but whenever i see it on offer i cant resist.
