Colgate Total Mouth Wash - Influenster Product Review

**all items received free from Influenster for review/testing purposes

I'm back...a little later than I planned, but I needed some recovery time from driving for so long.  And now I'm having a hard time getting back on track.  I thought that a good way to get going again is to write up my thoughts on the Colgate Total Advanced Pro-Shield mouthwash I received from Influenster back in July.
There's 3 flavors of Advanced Pro-Shield mouthwash: Spearmint Surge, Wintermint Rush and Peppermint Blast - which is the flavor I received.

According to the bottle:

  • kills 99% of germs
  • significantly reduces plaque
  • helps prevent gingivitis
  • no burn of alcohol
  • freshens breath
  • protects even after eating & drinking (on the cap's seal)

So what did I think?  I like this mouthwash a lot.  It's not too overpowering but it is still effective.  I didn't experience any burning, unlike some others.  I used this mostly at night time and felt that it really helped cut down on "morning breath."  I'm not sure how to tell how many germs it's killing, or reducing plaque/gingivitis, but since good oral care is necessary in keeping plaque and gingivitis away, this product definitely is a good one to use.  I'd say the only thing that could make this better is if it helped with whitening the teeth.  I really should get into the habit of using this after my morning coffee to help diminish the daily coffee breath.

I'm already planning which flavor I want to get next - I'm not worried about any of the flavors causing the uncomfortable burn since they are all alcohol free.  These come in 2 sizes so no need to worry about getting a huge bottle of a flavor that turns out to not be your favorite.

What's your favorite brand of mouth wash?  Is whitening a must, or just a nice bonus?
