I buy a lot of products from Tesco as I find their own brands, generally speaking, are very good quality and low prices. I have been using one of their own brand mouth washes for a while now but recently I have been finding it difficult to find this in store, so I am wondering if they have stopped selling it or they have changed the packaging and I just cannot locate it on the shelf.
This mouth wash comes in a plain plastic bottle with a top which doubles up as the little cup to pour the mouthwash into. It costs me only 60p and to be honest it is just as good as the more expensive mouthwashes I have been using. It is perhaps slightly milder than I like as I like a mouthwash to give a good ZING to my mouth after I have brushed my teeth, but I would say that if you are looking for something a little on the milder side then this is the one for you.
The directions are on the reverse of the bottle and you just swill it around inside your mouth for about 30 seconds then spit out – no need to rinse your mouth out afterwards. It do think it has really helped me to maintain a fresh breath and it helps to give me more confidence whilst I am out at work during the day.
It has a very mild minty flavour to it and the bottle lasts us for ages even though my hubby shares this one with me – as he is not so keen on strong mouthwashes.
Overall it’s definitely one to be recommended.
I normally buy an much more expensive mouth wash, but all that was on my Tesco shelf this month was this Tesco Daily Use Coolmint Mouth Wash. For under 60p I thought it was worth a try.
As for the cost please note that the actual amount charged by Tesco seems to vary from shop to shop.
This mouth wash comes in a plastic bottle with a child proof cap. This is a nice touch for such a cost effective product. The actual mouth wash is a blue colour. It is possible to see through the bottle and check how much mouth wash is left. The label gives details of how to use and the ingredients.
To use the instructions suggest
Remove and fill the cap with mouth wash (the cap is the measure for how much mouth wash to use in one go).
Swill around mouth for 30 seconds.
Then spit out.
The mouth wash does have a cool mint flavor. With a bit of a tingle. It is a mild taste which I like as my more expensive mouth wash gives a much stronger taste, at times almost feels like it is burning which can be rather unpleasant so this, milder taste, was a nice surprise..
The wash made my mouth feel clean and fresh - just like a more expensive brand. Dids notice that the fesh feel did not last 12 hours and I needed to wash my mouth after lunch. Which was not a bad thing really as it keeps mouth clean.
I, anyway tend to use a mouth wash after meals to clean out my mouth.
This wash may not be as strong as a named brand - but so far in two weeks I have not noticed that much difference, apart from as I said the fresh feel did not last all day.
Overall this is a good mouth wash for anyone on a budget. Although is have a medical condition that needs an anti septic mouth wash this is not strong enough.
But for everyday use seems fine.
I have been using this mouthwash for a few months now and it is fab! At just 49p for a large 500ml bottle it is amazing value and over £2 cheaper than the brand that I used to buy.
Admittedly this isn't quite as strong but it is good enough and for the price it is surprisingly good quality! The mouthwash comes in a basic but not too ugly or bulky bottle, which is see-through. I like that it is see through as I am able to easily see how much of the product is left so I don't need to worry about it running out without realising.
The mouthwash has a childproof lid which is good, and it isn't too hard to open - press both sides down and twist, simple. The bottle has information on it about the product including a full list of ingredients and also the product claims. Tesco claim that the mouthwash fights bacteria, cavities & tooth decay, freshens breath and strengthens tooth enamel - a lot of promises considering the price!
The mouthwash its self is a pale shade of blue and it has a water-like consistency. It has a sweet, minty smell and smells fresh. To use the mouthwash I pour some into the cap and swirl it around my mouth after brushing my teeth with toothpaste. The mouthwash has quite a pleasant taste. It is minty but it has a sweetness to it which is a bit artificial and chemical tasting but not unpleasant and it is very mild, it doesn't sting or burn my tounge/gums at so I never feel in a rush to spit it out.
After around thirty seconds of swirling it around my mouth and spitting it out my teeth feel cleaner with any gritty feeling from the toothpaste that I use completely gone as well as any left over residue of toothpaste - as I said before I use this directly after brushing my teeth, mainly because the toothpaste that I use doesn't leave my breath any fresher.
This mouthwash does leave my breath smelling 100 times cleaner and fresher, however when it comes to strong smells like garlic, onion etc it doesn't completely mask the smell even if I use a lot of it, and the length of time that it keeps my breathe smelling clean isn't that long - it's only a couple of hours before I feel the need to chew some gum or chew a mint, so it is not as effective as the one that I'd been using before but it is good enough for the price and I definitely recommend it.
When it comes to mouthwash, I am very picky about the types that I will buy. The likes of Listerine are far too strong for me so I avoid those on principle these days. Having tried various brands and noticing no real difference in my oral health, I am now converted to own brand type mouthwashes to save some pennies. Having been predominantly swayed by the price, I will admit that I didn't hold out a huge amount of hope for this mouthwash as it only cost 49p but it has proved to be a great choice and is now the mouthwash that I look to when available.
I cannot stand strong mouthwashes and I'm pleased to say that this is just pleasantly minty without being overpowering and definitely does not make my mouth feel like it's on fire (unlike Listerine). I can easily swill it around my mouth for up to a minute whereas Listerine lasts about 10 seconds in my mouth before I feel compelled to end the torture.
A word of caution though: the mint taste is quite sweet, which is different to most mint-based mouthwashes that I have previously used. This isn't a problem for me as I vastly prefer it to anything overly strong but it may well be too sweet for some people.
Once used, it makes my breath feel minty cool and much fresher than before and this sensation lasts for quite a while afterwards, which is about on a par with the branded mouthwash products that I've used in the past. Being so cheap, I wasn't confident that this would be the case but I was pleasantly surprised that my mouth did indeed feel fresher and this has been the case even after long coach trips which leave my mouth feeling stale and yukky until I can use some mouthwash to freshen up.
As I have previously mentioned, it is available for around 49p, which is a fantastic bargain in my book and as it's a 500ml bottle, it lasts for a while too. It does the same kind of job as much more expensive counterparts and having used this for a while now, I certainly haven't noticed any decline in my oral health since then so it seems to do much the same as the more expensive mouthwash products. It may not be anywhere near as potent as Listerine but I still feel like it's doing the right job in keeping my mouth fresh and healthier.
~~The Product: 'Tesco Coolmint Mouthwash' ~ 'You don't have to brush your teeth - just the ones you want to keep'!~~
This product comes in a tall 9" transparent plastic bottle, which is recyclable, and is curved in the middle on either side to afford an easy hold. A neat blue label displays the name of the product but also the reassuring 'With antibacterial action' wording underneath. There is a rather cute smiley logo at the base of the label that shows the product to be 'International Dental Health Foundation Approved'! This 'foundation is a leading independent oral health charity that works to improve the standard of oral health care worldwide'.
The Ingredients are listed on the reverse of the container and are as follows: 'Aqua,
Alcohol ,Glycerin ,Polysorbate 20 ,Aroma ,Cetylpyridinium chloride , Sodium Fluoride ,Sodium Saccharin ,Sodium Benzoate ,Menthol ,CI 42051'.
There is a wise warning that this product is not to be used by children under the age of twelve years, probably being due to the harsher ingredients and perhaps the concern of accidental swallowing. Also on the opposite side of the bottle is a series of ticks as to the manufacturer promises as to the effects of using the mouthwash; such as relating to 'protection against plaque...fresh breath' fights 'bacteria...tooth decay' strengthens and 'reminalise tooth enamel' and protects 'against cavities'. I put these affirmations to the test over a period of four months! I was quite surprised to find that this mouthwash has a pretty short shelf life, only six months. Though with regular use, the mouthwash is used up far quicker!
~~My Usage Experience ~ 'Long In The Tooth'!~~
I love using a mouthwash in the morning as it freshens my mouth, breath and helps me feel more awake! I purchase mouth washes in general as using such cleaning agents; especially those that contain fluoride have been noted to assist in preventing tooth decay. As an added benefit, fluoride mouth washes can also facilitate the removal of any debris of food particles and bacteria that may have been missed after brushing the teeth.
Noteworthy, is that those mouthwashes that contain fluoride, as does this product, will also certainly help reduce cavities too! Although I will say that I don't always choose mouthwashes that have fluoride in, any good mouthwash will in fact help to reduce gum disease. As a cautionary note, 'most of us get the fluoride we need from drinking water and fluoride toothpastes. Therefore' we 'should never add extra fluoride supplements to your oral health regimen without consulting your dentist first.
If I have a few more pennies to spend on the grocery list, I invest in a renowned brand but, as I hope my review will show, this basic antibacterial stands up fairly well to scrutiny! As toothpaste tends to contain similar or the same ingredients, I do not use before brushing my teeth, preferring to use the mouthwash a good while after. Through some wonderful articles from reputable sites online, such as the ones noted in my review, I have also gathered that it is not wise to drink or eat for at least half an hour after using a mouthwash. Employing antibacterial mouth washes and toothpaste soon after 'a meal can' actually 'damage your teeth, especially if you've had fruit, fizzy drinks, wine or any other food that contains acid. This is because tooth enamel is softened by the acid and can be worn away by brushing. Waiting an hour gives your saliva chance to neutralise the acid'. http://www.dentalsuitedocklands.co.uk
I don't use a mouthwash after every oral care routine as 'mouthwashes have specific indications and indiscriminate and regular use may in the long term prove to be causes rather than solutions to oral problems'- http://www.ask.com/question
~My Mouthwash Routine~
To open the container is very easy; by simply squeezing with both my fingers I can turn the cap to open. There are two equally spaced smooth finger spaces that are unique to the cap's fine grooves that show where to place the fingers to afford ease of opening. Twisting the cap off, the smell is most refreshing, although much like the mouthwash provided at the dentist surgery but more inviting! The odour has an astringent scent but pleasantly invigorating clinical aroma.
I start by pouring a capful, around 2oz of the aqua blue fluid into the cap that seals the bottle. As this mouthwash is for my personal use only, I feel happy to use the cap other than a glass; otherwise I would be concerned about spreading any germs to family members! Next, taking a good deep breath, I pour the fluid into my mouth, tilting my head back and begin to gargle, taking care not to swallow any of the wash. I tend to spend a good thirty to forty seconds gargling with the wash, if I can hold my breath that long! :~)
I always endeavor to use mouthwashes that are less astringent, more for sensitive teeth as then I don't need to rinse out my mouth after expelling the liquid. This means that the antibacterial qualities of the cleanser are able to continue working long after, avoiding the dilution of the fluid which would only minimize the effects. The fluid is pleasurable to use as it isn't at all acidic or bitter. It has an immediate effect of making my mouth feel freshened and clean. Some mouthwashes on the market can be overly minty, and I have found that these have the negative effect of drying my mouth but although this one is described as 'coolmint', it is a real delight to use. I experience no drying of my mouth. Long after usage, my mouth continues to feel sanitary, fresh and odour free until I eat a meal.
There are negatives though! This product contains alcohol and doesn't say what the percentage is either. 'Although alcohol works as a good antiseptic in mouthwash, it unfortunately is too harsh and it dries out the mouth. Mouthwash that contains alcohol usually contains about 20-30%. That is why it burns so much when you swish it around in your mouth and gargle it. If used regularly, this alcohol can damage the cells in the mouth and cause oral sores over time'- http://www.breathmd.com/mouthwash.php
Because alcohol is moisture less, as noted above, it causes a dry mouth, which then lowers the production of saliva, the very matter that helps in the fight of offensive breath. Furthermore, saliva, being oxygenized, destroys the harmful bacteria. So mouthwashes with alcohol, or at least a high proportion of it, are actually counterproductive, making the wash in fact, pointless for the intended beneficial properties! Unfortunately, there are new scientific studies that are indicating far worse health concerns regarding mouthwashes that contain a high proportion of alcohol and overuse of mouthwashes in general. On this basis, I use such products sparingly and only as a support to fundamental oral healthcare such as brushing and flossing.
~Supplementary Information~ My reservations explained!~
"There's strong enough evidence linking mouthwashes to oral cancer for them to be banned from supermarket shelves, an expert has claimed. What's the story? New research has found that mouthwashes containing alcohol can increase the risk of mouth cancer by up to nine times, particularly among smokers or drinkers. The risk is thought to be higher than from drinking beer or wine because they contain a higher concentration of alcohol. Why? The Australian scientists who carried out the study on 3,200 people, say the ethanol (alcohol) in some leading brands of mouthwash, like Listerine and Plax, can help things that already cause cancer like nicotine, get into the lining of the mouth. Alcohol-based mouthwashes also can produce acetaldehyde which has been previously identified to cause cancer in humans.
What are the experts saying? Researcher, Professor Michael McCullogh, says: 'We see people with oral cancer who have no other risk factors than the use of alcohol-containing mouthwash.' Dr Philip Stemmer, from London's Fresh Breath Clinic says: 'There's no need for mouthwash to contain alcohol - I recommend patients use an alcohol-free mouthwash instead." http://www.goodtoknow.co.uk/wellbeing/29​7613 "Mouthwashes can cause oral cancer and should be removed from supermarket shelves, an expert said last night. - There is 'sufficient evidence' that those containing alcohol contribute to increased risk of the disease, according to a review of the latest studies by an Australian scientist. Professor Michael McCullough, whose findings are published in the Dental Journal of Australia, said some mouthwashes were more dangerous than wine or beer because they contained higher concentrations of alcohol - as high as 26 per cent proof.
The ethanol in mouthwash is thought to allow cancer-causing substances to permeate the lining of the mouth more easily and cause harm. He said they should only be available with a prescription and for short-term use. 'We see people with oral cancer who have no other risk factors than the use of alcohol-containing mouthwash, so what we've done in this study is review all the evidence that's out there,' he said.

Professor McCullough, from Melbourne University, said the alcohol in mouthwash allows cancer-causing substances such as nicotine to penetrate the lining of the mouth more easily. And it can mean a toxic breakdown product of alcohol called acetaldehyde - another carcinogen - can accumulate in the oral cavity when swished around the mouth.
The review reported evidence from an international study of 3,210 people which found daily mouthwash use was a 'significant risk factor' for head and neck cancer. The effects were worst in smokers who had a nine-fold increased risk of cancers of the oral cavity, pharynx and larynx. Those who drank alcohol had more than five times the risk.

~~Would I Recommend? ~ 'An aching tooth is better out than in. To lose a rotting member is a gain'!!~~
Well, this is a quandary! The mouthwash feels effective and yet gentle. I have noticed no new oral healthcare concerns since using this product so it seems to tick the boxes of the promises made by the manufacturer. The product is inexpensive thus making it assessable to most folk.
But, I certainly have reservations over the alcohol content, though the percentage is not specified; it comes only second in the list of ingredients, indicating to me that the alcohol is fairly high in quantity. I will say though, that at the quantity I apply and reduced usage, I haven't as yet experienced the drying of my mouth. I will leave it as a 'no' in recommending, despite some of the benefits I feel I have obtained from the product. Even having the stamp of approval by the International Dental Health Foundation, I have concerns over the unnecessary adding of alcohol in the mouthwash!
The product, should you wish to try, is available throughout Tesco stores and online for £0.75 (£0.15/100ml: http://www.tesco.com
Thank you for taking the time to read my review...if only it could be as refreshing! :~D
I have had a lot of dental work done when younger, including 'train track' braces on for 5 years so after all that effort I want to keep my teeth looking and feeling good. I floss and brush twice a day and use mouthwash at least twice too.
I've tried many brands of mouthwash and became quite picky. Some were too minty, some not minty enough, some didn't seem to freshen my mouth as well but the problem I had with most of them was the price. I hated spending £4 or £5 on mouthwash.
I decided to give an own brand a try and plumped for the Tesco Daily Care mouthwash. I've tried the Coolmint one and the Freshmint flavour but I prefer the Coolmint; it seems to have just the right amount of mint flavour for me.
I find the flavour great, and the freshness lasting. No matter when I use it or what I've eaten my mouth ends up fresh and minty, which makes me more confident. I don't worry about bad breath or food smells on my breath talking to people close up - something I've noticed with some other mouthwashes I've tried.
Despite using this at least twice a day it does seem to last me a while although at the price (only 59p) that's not a huge concern. I have to say it's the best mouthwash I've ever tried, not something I thought I'd say about an own brand mouthwash!
Bad breath is a no no! I eat alot of spicy foods, drink and smoke and hate my mouth feeling and smelling stale. I brush my teeth twice a day and after brushing I always use a mouthwash to make my mouth feel really fresh and to help to protect my teeth as well.
This I bought from my local Tesco store and it cost me 49p which I thought was a good price for a big bottle and comparing it Listerine Coolmint it was vastly cheaper with Listerine being £3.30 for a bottle the same size as this! The bottle is see through and plastic with a white cap that screws on/off to the top of it and on the front of it we are told what it is and who it is by then and then on the back of the bottle we are told a bit about the product and how to use it, the ingredients are given and the size is stated which is 500ml and contact details for Tesco are listed. I like being able to see thr mouthwash through the bottle of this and its a lovely and rich sea blue colour!
Well all you do with this of course is to fill the cap of this with the mouthwash and swill it around you mouth and teeth without drinking any of it. It has a rich, sweet flavour of mint this one and I have to admit I don't really like the over sweet flavour that this has to it to be honest and the reason this is so sweet is because according to the list of ingredients this has in it contains saccharin.
This formulation is meant to protect against plaque, fight bacteria, tooth decay and cavities and to strengthen and remineralise tooth enamel as well as freshing breath.
Now of course I can't vouch for the fact that this does help to prevent tooth decay and cavities or even that it helps to strengthen my teeth but what I can say is that teeth do feel cleaner after using this, it does freshen my stale breath up quite a bit and for about an hour and isn't awful to use. As I stated earlier I'm not keen on the flavour or sweetness of this but its ok and does what its meant to do very well indeed.
I won't be buying this one again though, it is good quality and effective only due to the flavour of it but if you like sweet mouthwashes, then I don't think your going to be dissapointed with one!
Only available from Tesco and Tesco.com
This review is also posted on Ciao under this same username.
After wearing braces for over three years and having jaw surgery to finally get the lovely teeth I have always dreamed off I do now like to try and look after my teeth as much as possible but am also quite a bargain hunter. Therefore when I ran out of mouthwash and went to Tesco to do my weekly shop I decided to try the Tesco own brand mouthwash as it was a fraction of the price of some of the branded ones. I opted for a bottle of the coolmint mouthwash which stated that it had antibacterial action.
I paid just £0.49 for a 500ml bottle of the Tesco coolmint mouthwash which I thought was excellent value compared to what you can pay for some mouthwashes. In fact I did think at the time of purchase that even if this mouthwash did not turn out to be much good then I had not lost too many of my hard earned pennies.
The mouthwash comes in a clear plastic curved bottle with a white screw cap lid. The lid is actually a specialist safety one which you need to squeeze at the side and twist at the same time to break the seal on the initial opening and for each additional opening. To make sure this safety function works when you replace the cap you need to make sure it clicks into place. The mouthwash packaging is very simple but functional in design with the bottle having a sticky label on the front and the back. The front label simply has the Tesco logo and name of the mouthwash and the international dental health foundation approved logo on it. On the back label you will find more detailed information about the mouthwash including the functions of the mouthwash, directions for use, warnings and ingredients listings.
This mouthwash states that it helps to:
- Protect against plaque.
- Give fresh breath.
- Fights bacteria.
- Fights tooth decay
- Strengthens and remineralise tooth enamel
- Protects against cavities
When you first open the mouthwash you can immediately smell the minty fragrance but to me it's a little more spearmint smelling than coolmint but this was fine with me as it is what I prefer. To use the mouthwash it states to fill the cap and to rinse the undiluted mouthwash around your mouth. I find a full cap a little too much and tend to use about half a cap full instead after I have brushed my teeth. The taste of the mouthwash is quite strong but also pleasant and not overpowering. I have used some mouthwashes which have left my mouth feeling like it is on fire but this one is strong enough to make my mouth feel fresh but not reaching for a glass of water straight after use. I have been using this mouthwash for just over a week now in the mornings and evenings just after brushing and have been impressed with the results. Although the freshness that I feel after immediate use does not last a very long time I have noticed other positive effects. Before I began to use the mouthwash my gums had started to feel a little sore and inflamed but this has completely cleared up. I did not expect miracles from this mouth wash for the low cost but have been pleasantly surprised and would certainly recommend to anyone on a budget and would purchase again.
I like to have a clean mouth and fresh breath as I feel it gives me more confidence. I used to have bad breath years ago due to a digestive problem and I have personally experienced people backing off from me when I have been speaking to them face to face. It's highly embarrassing and not something I'll forget (or want to remember). For this reason, I am fairly obsessive now about my dental hygiene and as well as cleaning my teeth several times a day, and flossing, I also like to use a good quality mouthwash.
Until fairly recently I was using a branded mouthwash but my dentist told me he thought it was actually too strong for me and to lay off it for a while and possibly only use it a couple of times a week. He suggested a milder yet still effective mouth wash and I have been using Tesco's own brand Daily Care Coolmint. This stuff is nice.
This bottle of mouthwash comes in a pretty standard sized 500ml plastic bottle and the colour is a pale blue - not too vivid or 'girly' at all. This particular mouthwash also comes in the fresh mint variety but the one I have been using (and am reviewing, is their Coolmint option). In actually fact, thinking about it, I haven't been able to source the fresh mint for some considerable time, and I think this is why I initially opted for the Coolmint. At only 49p for a bottle of this mouthwash, I consider this to be a real bargain.
Once I had prized the top off, I poured a level capful into the cap and swished it around inside my mouth for a minute or so. This mouthwash contains alcohol. I prefer to use an alcohol based mouthwash as I find my mouth always feels fresher and cleaner.
This mouthwash both smelled and tasted great. Very minty and fresh and yet not too 'burny' like my old one tastes. This is still strong enough to feel like it is doing a good job in making my breath feel fresh and clean and yet it doesn't feel like I've ripped off the insides of my mouth in the process.
I do actually think this made my breath feel fresh for most of the day. Until I had a cheese and pickle sandwich at lunch time, that is. I would consider this a pretty good and effective mouthwash.
It certainly made my breath feel fresh and gave me more confidence and yet it wasn't too strong and didn't make my eyes water. The only problem I had was with the cap which, unless I rinsed it out and dried it off every time before I replaced it, I found that it was leaving a pale residue which was crumbling off all over the bathroom cabinet and preventing me from either getting the top on or off again.
Overall, I'm impressed with this mouthwash and it comes recommended by me.
I always purchase this mouthwash (either this one or the Freshmint one) as they're cheap at 59p and they're good quality too.
This one is the Coolmint flavour. It comes in a transparent plastic bottle with 500ml of mouthwash. The colour of the mouthwash is a funky blue colour and the flavour of the mouthwash is mint. You can measure a capful of the mouthwash via the lid or do what I do and swig it from the bottle, which is bad, I know! The mouthwash tastes nice with it's fresh minty aroma. Swig the mouthwash around your mouth for around one minute and then spit it out. After use your whole mouth will feel so much cleaner and fresher. This really is a good quality mouthwash for the price. I have seen them on offer before for 2 for £1 which is even better value.
The mouthwash manages to freshen the mouth, leaving you with clean fresh breath. The results aren't as long lasting as the more premium mouthwashes but this one does the job and it helps to keep your teeth and gums healthy. It should be used after brushing but I tend to use it throughout the day to keep my mouth feeling fresh. You can also gargle with the mouthwash. It does taste nice if you happen to accidently swallow some of it.
I would recommend this mouthwash. Why pay more?
I am very particular about oral hygiene and regularly use mouthwash throughout the day as I favour a strong mint taste accompanied by a slight burning sensation. I probably use far more mouthwash than I actually need and as a result, a bottle doesn't last me very long. I tend to alternate with different brands dependant upon any special offers with this review discussing Tesco Daily Care Coolmint.
We are provided with 500ml of vivid blue liquid, which is contained within a transparent and fairly sturdy plastic bottle. I must admit that whilst I like the flavour of coolmint I generally tend to opt for freshmint, as it offers a stronger taste. Consequently, I would previously purchase the freshmint in this particular range, but for some unknown reason Tesco no longer seem to stock it in any of their stores.
The bottle cap is securely sealed where the narrow tab running along the underside is broken when the cap is initially twisted whilst squeezing the finger pads located on both sides. The mouthwash has been formulated with fluoride and an antibacterial agent and a full cap of the undiluted liquid should be rinsed around the mouth.
The aroma is considerably strong, fresh and minty, but unfortunately, the mouthwash fails a little on taste, as it is not as refreshing and minty as I would have hoped. Whilst it freshens my mouth there is no burning sensation, which is a must for me when it comes to mouthwashes. Another issue I found disappointing is that within approximately ten minutes of using I could no longer taste the freshness as it disappears far too quickly for my liking.
I cannot state that is mouthwash delivers fresh breath confidence, but for those people who prefer a milder taste they would probably find this well suited to their needs. Another grumble I had with this product is the frustrating cap, which needed to be twisted until it clicked into the closed position. However, I found it a real struggle to open as I needed to apply some force whilst the tiny rows of indentations around the entire cap would dig into my fingers.
I do not believe in copying lengthy lists of ingredients into my reviews. However, I would advise that this mouthwash contains alcohol. The bottle should be used within 6 months of opening and can be recycled once empty. You can purchase a 500ml bottle of Tesco Daily Care Coolmint Mouthwash for 49p. I would probably repurchase if nothing else was available within my price range, but for the reasons discussed above I feel I can award only 3 stars.
I hope you found my review useful and thanks for reading.
This is the best mouthwash I have ever tried, it only costs around 80p at most and it does a fantastic job.
This is the cool mint flavour so although it still has a bit of a zing that means its doing some good, it doesnt burn like the stronger flavours.
To use just fill the cap up (the cap is also the measure for how much to put in your mouth at once) and then swill around your mouth for 30 secs. Then spit out and rinse your mouth with water or leave as it is. I find I need to rinse after because it makes my mouth quite dry.
It is a cool blue colour in a see through bottle, the label is also blue and has the Daily care logo and states instructions for use.
This is a good mouthwash to use if your on a budget as I believe it does the same job as other brands. It tastes nice, gives you fresh breath before you go to bed and when you wake up. It can be used throughout the day as many times as you want without having to brush your teeth more than usual. This is great if you have a sugary snack and need to get the harmful sugar off your teeth. It makes your mouth feel refreshed and you can go about your day with confidence.
Im not sure its any good if you have any mouth medical conditions for example that need cordosyl but for normal daily use it is fine.
