A little while ago I was asked to review Pearl Drops instant white 4D whitening toothpaste. I was happy to give it a go as I hate my teeth, and am less than keen on dentists. The packet has one of those colour gauges and states you can change by two shades in just one week. I held the box to my teeth but decided none of these shades were my colour.
Being an ex hairdresser I am used to recognising small changes in tone or colour depth.
Most toothpastes say use twice daily, but this one is three times daily. The first thing I notice is this paste is bright pink, and rather thinner than most toothpastes. It wasn’t what I was expecting, but it tastes ok, even if it does make your tongue temporarily very vividly pink.
After using it religiously for a week, three times a day I definitely could see an improvement in the colour, and although this isn’t sold as a sensitive toothpaste I wasn’t struggling with extremes of hot or cold foods. The surface of my teeth felt nice and clean, with that reassuring squeaky/shiny feeling.
Just after my week was up I had a dentist appointment and they said my pegs were looking good, although they mentioned the fluoride content of “cosmetic whitening toothpastes” wasn’t really high enough for me with my bad teeth, so now I am using the Pearl Drops each morning, and a more sensitive-teeth friendly paste at bedtimes. This is working well for me, my dentist is happy and my teeth are staying a good colour.
This variety (instant white 4D) of the pearl drops range is priced at £3.99 usually, but at the time of writing this post it is half price at Boots. Other places that sell Pearl Drops include Morrisons, Superdrug and Tescos.
The Pearl Drops Range includes:
- Pearl Drops Instant White 4D (RRP £3.99 50ml)
- Pearl Drops Ultimate Whitening 4D (RRP £4.99 50ml)
- Pearl Drops Restore White 4D (RRP £3.99 50ml)
- Pearl Drops Pro-White 4D (RRP £4.99 50ml)
This is one of the best toothpastes I have tried recently and I might well be buying more of this, I would rate it an 8 or 9 out of 10. Sorry, I am indecisive.
