Advantages: Very strong and extremely minty
Disadvantages: May be a little too strong for some people
I absolutely adore using dental products that leave me with a really fresh and minty taste in my mouth, so I was delighted several months ago when I first discovered Tesco Daily Care Freshmint Mouthwash.
I cannot say that the product stands out from the supermarket shelf, as in my opinion all mouthwashes tend to look the same. However, its' appearance is extremely clean and fresh as it is contained within a 500ml transparent plastic bottle, which allows you to see the vivid green liquid. We are provided with a green label on the front of the product and located in the upper left hand corner is the familiar Tesco logo. There is a white line running vertically throughout the label and in the centre we are advised that the mouthwash contains an antibacterial agent.
We are provided with an image of a smiley face where we are informed that the British Dental Health Foundation has approved the product. There is some further information on the rear of the product, which informs us that the Foundation recognises that the product is a useful aid in dental health care.
Tesco claim that the mouthwash will help protect against plaque, freshen breath, fight bacteria and help fight tooth decay. Whilst we can never be certain if the product does actually lives up to these claims, I am thrilled that at the age of 43 I have very few fillings. I have always taken good care of my teeth, particularly as I do not relish the thought of having to place them in a glass before bedtime!
To use the product we need to remove the transparent seal and turn the white plastic screw top lid whilst squeezing with both fingers. The moment the lid is removed I can smell the extremely fresh, almost breathtaking aroma of the mouthwash and a small amount should be dispensed into the lid and swished around the mouth undiluted. As the taste of this mouthwash is extremely strong I frequently find that my eyes water when using. I always feel my mouth is totally clean and fresh after I've used the mouthwash and it most definitely provides fresh breath confidence. However, I have to say that it really burns my tongue, which can at times be rather painful! You should note that when you replace the cap you should turn it clockwise until it clicks.
I've yet to find a mouthwash that will leave a fresh minty taste in my mouth for a long period of time as unfortunately, I find this product will linger for only a short while, as after approximately twenty minutes or so the taste has totally disappeared. It is recommended that the mouthwash be used morning and evening and throughout the day if required.
There is some precautionary information on the rear of the bottle, which advises that the mouthwash should not be swallowed and should be kept out of reach of children. We are also advised that this product is not suitable for those under the age of 12 years. There is a fairly lengthy list of ingredients, which I do not intend to list in this review, but I would advise that it contains rather a large percentage of alcohol!
The mouthwash should be used within 12 months of opening and the empty bottle can be recycled after use.
Would I recommend this? Most definitely yes, particularly due to its' reasonable price tag of only 49p for a 500ml bottle. I tend to use mouthwashes fairly quickly and will swish them around my mouth several times a day, as I absolutely adore the fresh minty taste. Consequently, Tesco Daily Care Freshmint Mouthwash receives 5 out of 5 stars from me.
I hope you found my review useful and would thank you for reading.
Summary: An effective and reasonably priced mouthwash from Tesco
