As an average human, my teeth don't quite have that Hollywood glean that I sometimes desire, and as an average human with a student loan and just a weekend job, I can't afford that Hollywood smile just yet. In the mean time however, I have decided to opt for the high street alternative, and try Pearl Drops Beauty Sleep serum.
|Pearl Drops Beauty Sleep Serum (20ml): Asda £2|
I had previously used the Pearl Drops Daily Shine toothpaste as I managed to snag it for something ridiculous like 40p in a Superdrug sale, but after that ran out I didn't fancy paying more than double the price for the same product again, so I did some browsing. This particular product caught my eye as it's an overnight serum that you rub onto your teeth and gums, and then just leave it to do it's magic. The words "overnight" and "serum" automatically convinced my little brain that it should be good, so I bought it without hesitation.
Once I got it home and tried it out though, I wasn't so sure about it. The product comes out as a pearlescent gel, and the packaging instructs you to rub it onto your teeth and gums with your finger, and leave on for at least 30 minutes, but ideally overnight; I've been opting for the overnight option. As far as the quality of the product goes, I don't like it. Once applied, the gel has a very strange drying effect, which makes it feel like you've just rubbed chalk over your teeth - not at all pleasant. The product also didn't come with any kind of retainer, nor does it instruct you to use one, but I'd definitely say to get your hands on one for trying this out as the drying effect (which I presume is meant to stop it from easily rubbing off) also induces the mouth to water, creating an altogether very unpleasant contrast of very dry teeth and a very wet mouth.
I've not noticed any changes in the shade of my teeth after a week of use, but I don't expect any obvious changes until I've used it for at least another week so I guess we'll see about that side of things!
Have you used this product before, or something similar? What were your opinions of it?
