Swishing mouthwash is definitely one of my least favorite parts of my morning routine.
First of all, I'm not the biggest mint fan. I always choose a "fruity" gum over a "minty" one, when given the option. Unfortunately, most mouthwashes these days are "minty." Why can't mouthwash come in chocolate chip cookie dough flavor? Why! Obviously, mint freshens breathe, and is the best option for a mouthwash flavor. Sigh...
In addition to mouthwashes mintiness, it also burns! Does Not Sound Like Fun! The burning sensation makes the seconds you swish, feel like minutes. No good....
Colgate Total Advanced Pro-Shield is an anti-gingivitis/anti-plaque mouthwash. Due to the fact that it is alcohol free, the burning sensation is greatly reduced, compared to traditional mouthwashes.
It provides 12 hour protection against germs, helps prevent Gingivitis, significantly reduces plaque & freshens breathe, all while killing 99% of germs. The 12 hour protection is even effective after eating or drinking.
I received the flavor Peppermint Blast. Colgate Total Advanced Pro-Shield also comes in Spearmint Surge and Wintermint Rush.
Overall, I liked this mouthwash. The flavor was not offensive, and the burn was tolerable. What I love most about Colgate Total Advanced Pro-shield (besides the benefits it provides,) is that you only have to swish for 30 seconds. I'm almost positive that other brands of mouthwashes I've used in the past, have required a full 60 seconds of swishing. So, the 30 second time limit is definitely a plus! I will repurchase this mouthwash after this bottle runs out. With continued use, I'm hoping that my dentist gives me the good news that my Gingivitis is under control. I've heard really good things about the Colgate "Total" line in general. It's the #1 most recommended brand among dentists.
