Colgate Plax Sensitive
Advantages: mouth feels clean, helps with sensitivity
Disadvantages: freshness not as long as I would like
I like to take good care of my teeth so mouthwash is a must have in our house. I usually tend to buy stronger mouthwashes such as Listerine but since I am trying to save some pennies and the only mouthwash that was on offer in my local Tesco was this Colgate Plax sensitive mouthwash I thought I would give it a go.
This mouthwash is designed to be used by people with sensitive teeth and gums and has an alcohol free formula in order to provide this more gentle care to your mouth. My teeth are not overly sensitive but I do have a couple of sensitive teeth right at the back so I was intrigued to see how this would affect them.
**What the mouthwash promises**
*Kills up to 99.9% of germs
*Delivers noticeable fresh breath
*12 hour protection against bacteria and plaque
Before using the mouthwash I had a quick sniff to see what the difference was between this sensitive mouthwash and the regular stuff I usually use. I have to say that this smells completely different. It has more mild scent. It smells just like the cool trebor soft mints. The mintiness is still there but is much less in your face.
I followed the guide of how much mouthwash to use and began rinsing away. As I suspected from the scent this mouthwash is very gentle and is not at all hot in your mouth. I wasn't sure how well it would work as I am used to the mouthwashes that you can actually feel working.
After using the mouthwash my breath was fresh and my mouth felt clean. When I use stronger mouthwashes my mouth feels minty fresh for quite some time afterwards but I have to say I was quite disappointed with the minty after taste of this one. After an hour I cannot notice it at all.
However I have noticed an improvement on my sensitive teeth. Usually when I eat something cold or the wind touches my teeth in a strange way it does irritate my teeth. But since using this mouthwash I have to say this has decreased dramatically.
**Price and availability**
You can find this mouthwash in supermarkets and pharmaceutical stores. I found this on offer for £1 but it usual retail price is around £3.00- £3.50
I like this mouthwash and I think that it does a good job at cleaning and maintaining the health of my teeth and gums. I would purchase this again if it was on offer however if I had the choice between this and a stronger mouthwash I would go with the stronger one as it just makes my mouth feel fresher for longer.

Summary: A mild mouthwash which will make your mouth feel clean and fresh but only for a small amount of time
