==Blanx Whitening Mouthwash==
I do try to look after my teeth and gums due to the fact that I know how expensive the dentist can be and the fact that I really hate going. Last time I went it cost me over £60 and I was in the chair for over 45 minutes and was ashamed to say that it smelt like something had crawled into my mouth a few months previously and died! Since then I have been extra vigilant as to my oral hygiene and thus the reason for purchasing rather expensive mouthwash.
This Blanx mouthwash is available from most Boots chemists although the bottle I have differs slightly from the one shows here. The bottle is a 500 ml one and is usually around the £5 mark although at the moment in Boots there is a few pounds off which makes it a reasonably priced branded mouthwash.
The bottle looks like a lot of the other Blanx products and I have tried a good deal of this companies toothpaste and tooth polish in the past and been reasonably happy with the cleaning and whitening affects which is why I was keen to give this mouthwash a try.
The bottle design is a fairly good one although I would prefer to see how much is left in the bottle and I would say it has much more of a manly look to it than other products I normally use. These aspects don't overly bother me though because if a product is good I don't feel affected by the look or design of the packaging.
The mouthwash itself has a very minty aroma to it as you would expect. It is alcohol free however which I suppose is a bonus for some people although I have to admit to not finding the alcohol free mouthwashes have that "bite" to it which I feel gives a deeper cleaner feel to using the product. This mouthwash is just like that and although it has a fresh and really minty taste it doesn't give me that super fresh clean feeling with that "bite" that I like that you get from the alcohol mouthwashes.
As far as the whitening aspect of this mouthwash goes I really didn't' see any improvement whatsoever when using it for the month or so that the bottle lasted me for. I can never really understand how a mouthwash would in fact have the ability to whiten teeth.
This mouthwash did keep me feeling fresh for a good hour or so after using it but it perhaps isn't the most long lasting product like this that I have used before.
All in all I have to say that this is a pretty mediocre mouthwash. It does taste minty and fresh and give me a good taste but it really doesn't whiten or last too long either. I think for the price this is not a mouthwash that I will be buying again and I probably wouldn't recommend it that much either. For that reason I feel that a score of 2 out of 5 stars is being more than generous and I would say that if you are prepared to pay out more than £5 opt for a Liserine.
I do hope that this has been of some help/interest to you
Many thanks for taking the time to read.
As a smoker and a rather addicted one at that I'm really paranoid about my teeth looking tainted yellow/brown and/or having smelly breath and at the moment everyone I mix with are ex smokers or none smokers which simply adds to my paranoia big time!
At £4.99 a bottle in my local Boots after trying the Blanx toothpaste at my mates when I stayed over ast hers and being rather impressed with it I really trusted this enough to give it a go!
500ml see-through plastic bottle that as a white label around it and a screw on/off white lid/cap to the top of it. On the label I'm told it is Tooth Whitening Mouthwash 'With extract of Artic Lichen And Plantain' and I'm told it is Blanx. Other information on the bottle includes being told a bit about the product, ingredients, cautions, directions for use and the size is stated (as I've listed already) and contact details for Guaber Uk Ltd are listed (the manufacturer of the product). It's a nice enough bottle though I find the safety lid/cap a real pain to turn and squeeze at the same time and each and every time I use it I really struggle to get it removed. Inside there is a clear tube and you simply squeeze the bottle and the top part fills up with the mouthwash so that it's measured out and the right quantity and you empy it in the cap to use it. Very easy to use it is!
A Bit About The Product According To The Bottle:
Blanx Tooth Whitening Mouthwash is the first protective mouthwash with a natural and continuous action. It is made with Artic Lichen, which contains natural active ingredients which attack harmful bacteria involved in the formation of plaque sand tooth decay. It also contains extract of Plaintain, traditionally used to fight bacteria and inflammation.
Regular use of Blanx Mouthwash ensures that breath stays fresher for longer, cleaning not just the surface, but deep down, removing pockets of bacteria that can cause bad breath.
Used regularly, Blanx Mouthwash gently whitens teeth, while preventing formulation of new stains and discolouration.
Blanx Tooth Whitening Mouthwash does not contain alcohol, to avoid irritating sore or sensitive gums.
Blanx Mouthwash works together with the rest of the Blanx oral care range to provide the ultimate defence against decay, plus longer lasting fresh breath.
Ready to use solution. pH neutral. Does not contain alcohol.
Me Using It:
Well like I said earlier it's easy to measure into the cap and the liquid is dark green in colour and transparent and smooth and very like water. It's minty fresh in a sort of pepperminty way and it's very sweet but in a natural sort of way too. All you do of course is clean your teeth the usual way of course and then rinse and then swill this around your mouth for a few seconds and then spit it out. Simple and job is done in a flash.
It tastes nice enough when your using it and doesn't leave a nasty or weird aftertaste at all. It's very fresh and does really freshen the breath and I feel it really does help give a bit extra cleaning to my already clean teeth and teeth feel very smooth indeed!
Yes I like it for minty fresh breath though like with other mouthwashes it is only a temporary feeling given and felt sadly however I do take issue with the claim that this is to help teeth whitening? Erm well I've used this a while now and on a regular basis too and I find this claim a very rich one indeed and it hasn't done that for me one bit!
It's an ok mouthwash and like I said I like the taste and the immediate benefits felt but it doesn't do all that much really!for me. Not sure it's worth the rather high price tag for what it is but if you see it on offer anywhere I'd give it a go but say buy with caution if parting with a fiver!
Available in all good supermarkets, chemists etc.
As I am now a convert to Blanx toothpaste, I felt it was only right to try out the mouthwash too. Unlike the toothpaste, you do get a lot for your money as this is a decent sized bottle of mouthwash. It comes in a pretty typical mouthwash shaped bottle and the liquid itself is green.
The claim for this mouthwash is that it is whitening, however after 2 months of use I wasn't convinced that it was essential if you're using a whitening toothpaste anyway. Realistically, I don't think it would be possible to whiten your teeth by rinsing it with a natural mouthwash, or in fact anything other than tooth whitening bleach, which of course I wouldn't suggest!
It had a fairly mild flavour and was pleasant enough, however the taste didn't last long at all. The mouthwash itself lasted quite a while, but I feel there are many other mouthwashes available on the market that would do just as good - if not a better - job.
I personally like to use a toothpaste to deal with tooth problems and a mouthwash to deal with gum problems. As this mouthwash is really aimed at those who are on a whitening mission, I feel this is a waste of money. If you like to spend a bit more money, or like your products to match, then there's no reason why this product shouldn't be purchased, however if you're looking to whiten then I can't see this having much impact.
Fresh all throughout the day.. well true but not completely. this product is good, but not as good as it says. It does freshen the breath, and not just that, it actually makes your teeth a bit brighter, but no way does it have it effect all throughout the day. The freshness wears off after about 3 to 4 hours. Not just that, at a price of about $19 per 150 ml bottle, it is quite unreasonably expensive. If you want my advice, save your money and buy a product such as Dr White Mouthwash, which is just as good as it, better infact, and also cheaper, at around $12 per 150 ml Bottle. Take my advice, try something else.
