“ Brand: Boots / Type: Mouthwash / Skin type: for dry skin and for all types / What it does: Refreshes, „
I paid £1.99 for this mouthwash from Boots. Their oral care was on a 3 for 2 offer so I received a bottle free.
The mouthwash comes presented in a transparent plastic bottle with 500ml of mouthwash. The mouthwash is a lovely blue colour and it has a minty aroma. You can use the cap to dispense the mouthwash as one capful is just the right amount. The mouthwash tastes nice. It does taste minty and fresh with an added kick to it. It's not too strong, it doesn't make your eyes water or anything. It's just the right strength in my opinion.
I swig the mouthwash around my mouth for around twenty seconds before spitting it out. After using this mouthwash my breath is so much fresher and the mouthwash gives me more confidence. It gets into all the hard to reach places and it can be used pretty much any time of the day. I have fillings in my mouth and the mouthwash doesn't irritate them in any way. It doesn't bother mouth ulcers either as I get a lot of them.
The mouthwash helps to control plaque and tartar build up. It's ideal to use at night as it helps to tackle morning breath. It is approved by the British Dental Association too. I would recommend it. Plus it lasts ages too as the bottle is of a generous size. The bottle is strong and sturdy and usage instructions are printed on the reverse.
A great daily mouthwash for a cleaner mouth.
I made this purchase because boots have been doing a 3 for 2 promotion on all mouth care, and even though I wasn't particularly looking round for a mouth wash I decided I could do with some more, and managed to spot this one. I was attracted to it first of all because of the colour - as it is a fresh light blue. The packaging itself isn't as nice as listerine, I don't find, but it still aims to offer protection to your teeth and gums from plaque and bad breath.
The product --> This comes in a 500ml bottle, which is great means its long lasting, in a clear plastic bottle which is quite sturdy. It has a dark blue screw top on it, which can get quite sticky like the majority of them once you spill a bit of mouthwash on it! The label is quite simple, and on the back has some information on how to use it and what it helps to offer.
It is an antiseptic which kills bacteria, and it does help to freshen breath. It should be swilled around for around 60 seconds after brushing, but I usually use it just to freshen throughout the day.
The sensitive doesn't contain any alcohol, which is even better.
The cost --> This costs about £2.03 which is great, and does last for a few months or even longer depending on how many times its used a day.
I do recommend this product, it tastes quite nice and offers antibacterial protection.
I picked up the sensitive variety of Boots' smile mouthwash in Freshmint as I suffer with sensitive teeth and gums and was looking for a more mild mouthwash that doesn't feel like its burning the inside of your mouth as you rinse unlike some others do! I paid £1.99 for a 500ml bottle which I thought was very reasonable.
The mouthwash claims to kill bacteria with its anti-bacterial ingredients, therefore giving long lasting protection from plaque whilst also helping to freshen the breath. It does not contain any alcohol which makes it less harsh and therefore kinder to sensitive gums and teeth. For me this was a definite bonus as I was able to rinse the solution around my mouth for an adequate amount of time without having to feel the need to spit it out too soon because of discomfort.
On use I found this mouthwash to be much more gentle and user friendly and the freshmint taste did indeed leave my breath smelling minty and made my whole mouth feel very clean and fresh. This did leave a mild, tingly feeling although not painfully so. My teeth did feel cleaner to the touch and although you do not get to see evidence of the plaque that has been removed the feel of the surface of your teeth bears testament to the fact that it appears to be doing its job. There is nothing worse than running your tongue over your teeth and feeling a coating there so I was impressed with the results.
I found that my mouth and breath felt very fresh for several hours athough once I had had a drink/eaten, this effect did lessen although this is usual with most varieties of mouthwash on the market.
I would highly recommend this product as it is good value for money and does the job well without discomfort so if you have sensitive teeth and gums this is a great option for you.
Thanks for reading. x
As I am on a spending cutback as far as toiletries and beauty products go, I've swapped my usual Listerine mouthwash for this Boots brand. This isn't as much of a hardship as it might sound, as I'm finding the Listerine mouthwash a bit strong and wanted something more mild.
I think I may be using a different flavour to the review title as my mouthwash is blue in colour (rather than the blue-green colour that you can see in the above product image). The taste is definitely minty, but nothing too strong and I can easily swill it around in my mouth for the required amount of time without it overpowering me. The minty taste seems to linger for a bit afterwards, giving that a nice feeling of freshness.
It's not that easy to see the results of this mouthwash as it doesn't claim to pull bacteria from your mouth or show any visible results in the sink afterwards. When I first started using this mouthwash, I had been suffering from a bit of gum bleeding after having four wisdom teeth out and this seemed to quickly help my gums to sort themselves out within a day or so. Thinking that it may just have been coincidence, I switched back to the Listerine to see if that had the same effect and was rather surprised to find that the bleeding actually resurfaced again. That led me to wonder if the Listerine is too harsh compared to this?
My mouth definitely feels fresher after a couple of weeks of using this mouthwash. I'm not sure how much plaque it is helping to remove but I have noticed less of a plaque build-up in the hours of using this - even if I am drinking or eating fairly sugary things.
I picked my bottle up for £2 in my local Boots store.
