My favourite products of the ones I tried were the Pearl Drops Instant Beauty which is the pink toothpaste you can see above, and the Arm & Hammer Advance White Max Booster which is the blue speckly one on top. As you can see I've been using these two together as the Max Booster is designed to be used as well as another toothpaste to 'boost' the results.
There's nothing not to like about a pink toothpaste. It cheers me up every time I use it and it puts my boyfriend off pinching it too. I can't say I remember to use the booster every time I brush, but I do try to. The combo works well together and leaves my teeth feeling really clean.
The Instant Beauty toothpaste promises whiter teeth in a week, but I guess you're only going to get that if you weren't already using a whitening toothpaste before. I only ever buy whitening and sensitive whitening toothpastes, so I don't think I was starting off with a level enough playing field to see amazing results.
I've also enjoyed using the Pearl Drops mouth whitening mouthwash as an extra line of attack. I don't generally buy mouthwashes that often, so it was good to try one out again and it made me feel like I was giving my teeth maximum protection against plaque and all those nasties.
I haven't gotten around to trying the Pearl Drops Tea & Coffee yet but I'll move onto it as soon as I run out of my pretty pink toothpaste.
*Pearl Drops Beauty Sleep | £3.49 | Boots
While I was in the middle of trying out all of these goodies I was also sent Pearl Drops' latest product - Beauty Sleep. This product is a whitening serum you put on your teeth at night and leave on until the morning. I've tried teeth whitening strips in the past, both the ones you leave on for an hour and the ones you leave on all night, and I just couldn't keep them in my mouth. I was just really aware that they were there and it felt like they were making my mouth fill with saliva and I just had to take them off and rinse my mouth out. With beauty sleep you just need to rub a tiny amount of the gel on your teeth and that's it - you don't have to put any strips or trays in your mouth, so it's perfect for me.
The serum is clear and goes onto the teeth really easily with a swipe around of your finger. It has a really nice minty taste too - strong but not too overpowering and it doesn't sting at all. I'd forget that I'd put it on if it wasn't for the super fresh feeling it leaves in my mouth for ages afterwards.
I'm hoping I might see a little extra whiteness from this product over time, but even if it can't get my teeth any whiter than I've achieved already with the toothpastes, it's still really good or my teeth as it helps to restore enamel and nourishes the gums. I'll definitely buy another of these when I run out - I think it's such a bargain for £3.49 compared to some overnight whitening products you can buy.
Have you ever had laser whitening or do you reply on products you can use at home too?
