This mouthwash comes in a blue bottle, the mouthwash itself is also aqua-blue in colour. The bottle has a cap on which there are ml marks so you can measure out the amount of mouthwash your require (15 ml is the recommended amount).
I found that this mouthwash has a far less potent, much weaker taste than any other mouthwash i have encountered. It does still have a minty taste but doesn't make you shudder, a positive considering you are required to swish it around your mouth for a whole minute rather than the usual 30 seconds. However, i found that this weak taste seems to correspond with a weak mouthwash. My mouth does not feel any particular increase in clean-ness after using this product, stonger mouthwashes seem to make me feel as though my mouth has been stripped of plaque/bacteria whereas Macleans seems to have had little effect. This prouduct is recommended for use after each toothbrushing session yet seems to add nothing.
I usually buy mouthwash a couple of bottles at a time when i see a BOGOF or half price offer on any decent brand, so when i seen a 600ml bottle of Macleans which included 100% free for 99p at bodycare i bought 2.
A clear recyclable plastic bottle covered with a blue plastic label which also covers the lid to act as a seal, the front of the bottle has the Macleans logo and a "100% free" flashed across the bottom, the screw cap is also used as a measuring cup.
The back has full directions for use and a list of ingredients including Alcohol and sodium fluoride.
" Freshens breath, Fights plaque, Antibacterial action, Helps protect gums"
The mouthwash has a fresh minty taste, not to hot that it burns your mouth out but it leaves a clean fresh feeling, but the freshness does not seem to last as long as other brands i have used.
It definitely freshens you breath but it's difficult to say whether it fights plaque and protects your gums without running my own trials!
Average performance mouthwash at an average price, if i was on a tight budget i would buy this, but i was expecting a bit more from a well known toothpaste manufacturer.
MacLean's Freshmint Mouthwash
In my line of work where I meet a lot of people on a daily basis I believe that good oral hygiene is essential. Its one of the first things that I tend to notice and therefore I always strive to have fresh smelling breath going into meetings. Over the years I have tried all sorts of brands of mouthwash and one of them is MacLean's Freshmint Mouthwash.
A bit about Macleans
Macleans is actually owned by GlaxoSmithKline who are a UK based pharmaceutical company. In fact they are the worlds second largest pharmaceutical company and distribute their products to global consumers. Macleans is known for their dental related products such as toothpaste and mouthwash
This product is widely available and can be found in most chemists and supermarkets. I am not sure about the current price but ultimately you should not really be paying more then £2 for a bottle of this mouthwash. In many instances and in fact the time I tried the mouthwash it was on offer in Tesco. I believe the deal was two for £3.50 or something in that region.
I was not really all that impressed by this product. The flavour of the mouthwash is mild and very tolerable however on the downside of this it appears to be weak and you wonder if it is doing any real good. I think maybe perhaps I just prefer the more intense mouth wash experience.
In my opinion mouthwash is not an area were you can compromise in an attempt to save money. Macleans mouthwash isn't really up to the job of providing any sort of long lasting protection against bad odours and for that reason I wouldn't recommend anyone buying this unless it's very cheap as I suppose its better than nothing.
