One thing I would really hate to be known as is that bird with smelly breath! I do eat alot of spicy foods, I smoke and my oral hygeine is incredibly important to me in general! I brush my teeth twice a day, I floss and gargle the day through with mouthwash but one thing I do like in my bag or in my pocket is gum or a breath freshener.
I spotted this the other day in my local Asda store costing a mere £1.00 for a small bottle of it and felt that it was worthy of a trial because I'm sick of chewing within an inch of my life and getting sore gums and besides which gum is costing me a fortune!
What you get is a small plastic see-through bottle which is a sort of oblong shape and pull off the matching lid and under that you have a push button white plastic sprayer. On the front of the bottle there is a green and white label and on that we are told that it is Asda Protect Extreme Fresh Gel Fresh Breath Spray and that it is sugar free and the size is given which is 18ml (and the only size I have ever seen this available to purchase in by the way). On the back of the bottle ingredients and advice on how to use it are given, cautions are listed and contact details for Asda are given. Nice little handy bottle this is with the lid being secure and enough information is provided on it too.
All you do with this dark green gel spray is to spray as much or as little into your mouth as you want to. It does feel quite thick when you spray it and not watery, smells really minty and tastes really minty too, this even feels like its burning my lips if I'm not careful so I try to avoid them!
This gives a really strange sensation in the mouth when sprayed in though. My mouth goes hot and cold when the minty gel hits it, it sorts of melts and tastes strongly minty at first but that initial minty flavour does dissapear rather quickly and your left with a slightly bitter and very sweet taste though I'm informed my breath does smell really minty fresh for a good few minutes after using it.
I'm not really all that keen on the hot and cold sensation that goes on, the lalvour really is sweet and turns bitter fast and although this does instantly freshen breath that is rather short lived and other than freshening breath for a little while it offers nothing else so why its called 'Protect' I don't know really?!
Not bad as an instant breath freshener providing you don't mind stinging lips and a weird and sickly sweet and bitter taste for ages after using it I guess lol!
Only available from Asda stores.
