Who doesn’t want whiter teeth, right? I for one as a dedicated coffee and tea drinker have stained teeth. I use sensitive toothpaste rather than whitening so I give my teeth an occasional whiten with a kit – it makes a big difference although I don’t do it that regularly.
So the Listerine Advanced White mouthwash is interesting – the idea that you can whiten your teeth or maintain them daily without too much bother makes me happy!
They say that the Listerine has:
- Powerful essential oils penetrate and reduce plaque bacteria to clean the tooth surface
- Non abrasive whitening technology lifts stains attached to the tooth
- A protective sheild helps to prevent new stains forming on the tooth surface
I have used this for more than 2 weeks now – I have to say I generally do not use mouthwash with Alcohol (it can dry your mouth out) and I prefer ones like Therabreath or good old Dentyl. However I stuck with it….
I think this mouthwash does a decent job of whitening or brightening the appearance of teeth. It doesn’t whiten alone – as if swishing some liquid in your mouth for a few minutes can do that – but it did seem to help keep things brighter along with through brushing. It can’t hurt I guess, if you are in to keeping your teeth nice and white but don’t reply on it to whiten your teeth alone.
Also in partnership with Listerine, Wild About Beauty’s co-owner, Louise picked 3 shades that make your teeth look whiter – I have Caroline which is a soft pink.
I think this colour does make the teeth look whiter! see below for reference. The other recommended shades are Abby (Fuchsia Pink) and Ella (Rich Berry).
The mouthwash is currently on offer for half price at Boots – 500ml is £2.74.
