When I hear the word "Listerine" I think of my grandpa's house where there was always a big bottle of Listerine on the bathroom counter. One time when I was kid I took a tiny little taste just to see what it was like. I spit it out right away! Back in those days Listerine was pretty intense. Let's just say you could feel it working. That one experience with Listerine was enough to keep me away from it for a while.
When I was asked by the good folks at Mom Central to review Listerine Total Care Anticavity Fluoride Mouthwash I was a little sceptical. And scared. I haven't forgotten what that sip of Listerine was like when I was a kid. I like to live on the edge though so I said they could send me a bottle.
Imagine my surprise when what showed up to my house was a bottle of pretty purple mouthwash. Clearly this was not my grandpa's Listerine! And it does more than just look nice sitting on your bathroom counter. There are six benefits of Listerine Total Care and they are:
1. Helping to prevent cavities
2. Restoring enamel
3. Strengthening teeth
4. Killing bad breath germs
5. Freshening breath
6. Fighting unsightly plaque above the gum line
All that and it tastes good too! There is no burning sensation, just a pleasant tingling. I plan on buying this product again and not just because I like the color.
