Review of Listerine® HealthyWhiteᵀSodium Fluoride Anticavity Mouthrinse.

Again, Crowdtap & Listerine® have graced me with their presence of fine products.  This time with Listerine® HealthyWhiteᵀᴹ Sodium Fluoride Anticavity Mouthrinse.  Woah, that's a mouthful!  Well, when you have 19 different mouthwashes to choose from, the names are going to start getting a bit long.  But it's helpful in helping review all the differences to see what might best meet your needs!

I'm not big on whitening products for a few reasons.  Depending which method you use, it either hardly works, or it can be very expensive to have multiple treatments done for it to work.  Toothpastes show minimal effects, if any at all, even with long term use.  Bleaching kits could take a few weeks of treatments to show, and laser treatments work much quicker but are so darn expensive!  Many methods also usually use hydrogen peroxide.  There has been back and forth if it's really safe to be using.  The most I've read up on it is that it can cause a lot of irritation if it comes in contact with your gums.  I have enough issues with my teeth, TMJ, and Oral Allergy Syndrome that I usually just stay away from whitening stuff all together.  Unfortunately, coffee, wine, and tea addictions are my main issues keeping my teeth not so white.

I already love Listerine® products for a multitude of reasons.  The fact they they have become so innovative to meet your needs.  You want mint?  Whitening?  Alcohol free?  Original?  You got it!  None of them taste great... but they DO taste a heck of a lot better than store brand rinses.  Sure, sometimes you can find a store brand that's competitive, but I've learned the hard way that Listerine® is top notch!  If their product is labeled gentle also, trust it!  You won't feel the need to spit it out immediately after taking a swig of it.

This Listerine® HealthyWhiteᵀᴹ is a bit different than their other HealthyWhiteᵀᴹ rinses as it doesn't contain Hydrogen Peroxide for whitening.  I also noticed the alcohol content was 14%, the highest of all the other HealthyWhiteᵀᴹ rinses they offer.  I can't really tell by looking at the ingredients how it's whitening but I trust Listerine® has done their research and maybe if you're big into chemistry you can figure it out. 

My thoughts?  The product is clear and has that strong Listerine® scent.  I was surprised, with the high alcohol content, exactly how gentle it was!  It wasn't overpowering and had a light tingle with a burst of mint.  Even less harsh than the Listerine® Naturals I tried.  It just keeps getting better and better!  It left my mouth feeling clean and fresh long after use, which I think they have perfected long ago.  As far as it being considered a whitening product, of the limited time I was using it I don't feel it whitened my teeth any more, but I do feel it helps with staining if you use it directly after a drink or meal that may cause staining.  It has been extremely helpful after my morning cup of black tea.  Who knows, maybe after time I will see a difference.  It's still a great product overall.
