Today I am sharing a product with you that isn't my usual style- a new mouth rinse from CB12. I received an email a few weeks ago asking if I wanted to give it a whirl and although I was pretty indifferent I knew a certain someone who would definitely want to try it. Whilst I spend hours in the beauty aisles in Boots, my boyfriend Chris will spend the same time in the dental aisle. If I ever lose him in Boots- I know where to go. Since having a terrible time with a dodgy tooth he has been obsessed with keeping his teeth healthy and so he was the perfect person to trial this mouthwash.
CB12 is described as a 'new, unique, long-lasting mouth rinse proven to prevent and treat bad breath. Effective for 12 hours, CB12 neutralises substances and processes that cause bad breath.'. There was a lot of scientific bumpf in the press release but basically it has a unique formula which treats bad breath, rather than masking it like lots of other mouth wash.
There are two versions of it- one is CB12 Mint/Menthol which has a strong taste of mint and then there is a milder version called CB12 mild.
I have been trying the mild version and my first thought was that the bottle is very clever as you turn it 45 degrees, press a button and it automatically dispenses the correct amount- fancy! I am a big fan of the flavour as I find other brands are so strong and feel like they are burning my mouth. This feels really nice and does the job as if I use it at night I wake up and still feel nice and minty.
Chris has been trying the stronger version and he says that it is much better than other brands of mouth wash because it dispenses the correct amount- other brands just say how much to use but this makes it really easy to use by providing you with exactly what you need. Its ease of use is a big plus. He felt that it kept his mouth fresh for a long time although didn't find it as effective as other mouth wash in terms of making his teeth feel super clean. Overall, he is a fan.
The mouth rinse is available in larger Boots stores and Lloyds pharmacies for £14.59. It is not suitable for those under 12 and for people sensitive to its ingredients.
