Superdrug Totalcare Mouthwash
Advantages: Cheap, cheerful and does freshen the mouth for a small time and tastes nice enough
Disadvantages: Doesn't completely disguise nasty smells in the long term
I am really fussy about my oral hygiene and hate the thought of bad breath! I use a mouthwash after brushing my teeth always to help keep plaque levels down as much as possible and to of course fend off smells as I do like spicy food.
This in Superdrug costing a mere 50p a bottle seemed worth a try but I didn't expect very much from it at all considering its mini price tag. I usually spend a lot more on a product such as this but thought like I said that it was very much worth a go when my funds were running low!
The plain see-through bottle holds 500ml of the light blue coloured liquid and it has a push and twist white plastic safety lid/cap to the top of it. On the front of the bottle it has a blue label with a silver squiggle pattern on there and we are told that it is Superdrug Totalcare Coolmint Mouthwash 'Helps fight tooth decay, fight plaque, freshen breath and to keep gums healthy'. On the white back label other information listed includes being told a bit about the product and directions for use are given, warnings and ingredients are listed along with the size being given and contact details for Superdrug are also stated. Simple, cheap looking bottle this is but its robust enough, simple to use the cap (to measure the mouthwash into if you want to) and the label is informative as it needs to be.
A Bit About The Product According To The Information Given On The Back Of The Bottle:
Superdrug Totalcare Coolmint Mouthwash has been specially formulated to help fight plaque and leave your mouth feeling clean and refreshed.
Active ingredients help to:
Protect teeth and gums against the build up of plaque
Strengthen tooth enamel and fight tooth decay
Leave your mouth feeling clean and refreshed, with a cool minty flavour
The Mouthwash Itself:
Well all you do to use this is to fill the cap up (which is provided as the lid on the bottle) with some undiluted mouthwash and gargle with it after brushing your teeth for up to 60 seconds and spit it out and you can use this up to twice a day if you want to.
The liquid is of course is blue and transparent and smells and tastes of spearmint. It's very sweet indeed but very minty and perfectly pleasant in flavour without taking your breath away.
It leaves the mouth fresh, doesn't leave a greasy residue or film in the mouth and the fresh tastes wears off after a few minutes.
Yes this does freshen the breath temporarily though doesn't completely get rid of garlic smells and hefty stinks for good but it does disguise smells for a while. Teeth do feel a little cleaner and plaque free after using it and I do think it stops the feeling of plaque build up in my mouth. I can't vouch of course for it keeping gums healthy as such but I haven't had any gum problems since using this for the past couple of months!
All in all this is a cheap and cheerful mouthwash that works pretty good for me and my needs and its cheap!
Only available in Superdrug costing 50p a bottle.
Summary: So so mouthwash!
