Listerine Stay White
Member Name: Whizz11
Advantages: Not as strong as original although works as well
Like most people I enjoy fresh breath and white teeth so I was very excited to find this new Listerine Antibacterial Mouthwash, Stay White version in Sainsbury's a few weeks ago.
It was approximately £2.50 for a 500ml bottle which I didn't think was too bad. We decided to go for the smaller 500ml bottle as opposed to the 1 litre as we never seem to go through a litre bottle and it always stays on the shelf and then I think it won't be that fresh. With the 500ml bottle we will use this quicker although it does have a best before date of 02/2010 so I'm sure we will use it before then.
My husband has been trying to get me to use the original version for quite a while now but I found it way too overpowering and strong and could not even keep the liquid in my mouth long enough to swish it around so I was interested to see if this version would be any better. I was very pleased to find out that it was. It still is quite strong and stings a little bit but not as much as the regular version. Saying this though I still felt as if it was doing a good a job as the other version.
The taste is still the same, the antisceptic, medicine taste and that stays in your mouth for a while afterwards but when it fades it leaves your breath still smelling fresh and natural.
The liquid is blue and it says on the bottle that it helps keep teeth whiter. It does this by reducing and preventing tartar which make teeth stay whiter if you can prevent it. I have been using this for a few weeks now and although I have not noticed a big difference in the whiteness of my teeth it is definitely keeping them clean and it seems to keep my teeth the same shade that they are and they are not getting stained by the tons of coffee I drink each day.
If you have never used Listerine mouthwash it is very easy to use. Basically you take a mouthful of the liquid, rinse it around your teeth and gums for approximately 30 seconds and then spit out. DO NOT SWALLOW. It contains a lot of chemicals so never swallow it. It says on the bottle to pour some of the liquid into a glass before you drink it but I just use the cap as I find it easier. The nice thing about the cap is that it has a child safety lock on it, you have to squeeze the cap in order to open it so little children will not be able to do this which is good. I find that when I have been swilling it around my mouth it foams up a bit as well. After I spit it out I like to rinse my mouth out with a bit of water to stop the burning which works quite effectively.
All in all I find this to be a good product which I definitely recommend. The bottle says it:
Reduces more plaque than just brushing
Kills bacteria in the mouth, a cause of gum disease
I have definitely found that it does all of these things and I will continue to use this to keep my mouth and teeth healthy and looking good.
