Research has shown that brushing and flossing alone will not remove all plaque within the mouth2. The addition of a fluoride mouthwash can help strengthen teeth, control plaque and kill germs that cause bad breath. Jane Rossi, Dental Scientific Liaison at Johnson & Johnson Pacific suggests “Rinsing with an antibacterial mouthwash containing fluoride in conjunction with regular brushing and flossing can improve and maintain your oral health if used regularly.”

 

 

 

DaysAdding LISTERINE® Total Care® Mouthwash to your oral care routine twice a day after brushing and flossing is the final proactive step towards better oral health.
It is believed that it takes just 21 days to form a new habit and with this in mind the LISTERINE® 21 Day Challenge aims to encourage consumers to form a healthy habit and jumpstart a healthier mouth in just 3 weeks. From Day 1 and beyond, consumers will start to experience the benefits of a healthier mouth

    We use Listerine in our house but have always just bought the green on – mint. It was good to be given a new one to try as although I have seen this in the supermarket and realise that the total care must have more benefits, I have just stuck with what I am use to.

    I was surprised at first to see that the flavour was still mint (just a slightly different mint) as looking at a purple bottle and liquid you would expect it to be bubble gum or some other flavour I would not be keen on. It left a nice after taste and left the mouth feeling refreshed throughout the day. I have been using this for over two weeks now and as yet I have had no problems.

  2. Interesting……
    I’ve used mouthwash before and experienced that clean fresh feeling you get after using it.
    With Total care however that feel does seem to last longer. For me personally I find there is’nt as strong a tingling feeling in my mouth as I’m using it, which makes it easier to use as some mouthwashes almost seem to hurt/burn when using them.
    Total care also has a pleasing mint taste that stays around for a while( Don’t have a cup of tea within an hour of using this)
    I’ve been using this product for a while now and I’m pleased with it and would buy it to use again.

  3. I have been using Listerine Total Care for a week now and overall I’m really happy with it. I feel like my mouth is so much fresher, and my teeth just feel cleaner for a long time after using it. I felt like my breath was also fresher after using it too as I’m a coffee drinker 😉 The bottle looks really well designed, although I feel that it would attract more women than men, just due to the colour and pattern.

    There was one issue though – it was simply too intense to take at full strength. I say this with full disclosure that I’m a bit of a wuss when it comes to strong or intense flavours. To be perfectly honest, after 5 days at full strength, I decided it would be better for me to dilute it slightly with water (75% strength). This allowed me to gargle for the required amount of time rather than not being able to at full strength. I actually didn’t notice any downside to this as I still felt the same benefits as before – although I understand I am not going to gain the full effects by doing this. I feel like going forward I would opt for a gentle option.

  4. Listerine total care mouthwash has been very fresh to use over this past week. I found it at first very minty-hot and could only handle Afew seconds of gargling, but as the days went on I felt a resistance build, which made it easier to do the full amount of proper swish, gargle time. It left my breath very fresh and felt a barrier like existence over my teeth. Anything I ate until after lunch didn’t seem to stick to my teeth as much. I felt much more confident to talk to people during the day, that my breath was fresh and teeth left sparkly clean. I would recommend to all others and will continue to buy this product again.

    After using Listerine Total Care mouthwash for a week, I’m a fan! I love how fresh and clean I feel afterwards, and it has a yummy sweet mint taste which is their best flavour to date.
    Listerine is such a well known brand in NZ, you know you are using a quality product and can be assured that you are taking positive steps in your oral hygiene by using it.
    I didn’t find the mouthwash too powerful, it was as strong as their other flavours (apart from the alcohol free one) and felt that aided the cleanliness feeling.
    Thank you for allowing me to review.
    I would definitely recommend Listerine Total Care mouthwash and will buy this again in the future.

  6. I love the packaging, it stands out 🙂 I was not expecting it to be mint flavour though after seeing the purple.

    My teeth feel cleaner for much longer too. I would definately buy this product again 🙂

    Thanks for letting me review. I only got it the other day, was hoping to review after a longer time using but my review is late.

    Oh only half my review was put up, oops

    I have never used mouth wash much in the past but am now hooked. I love how my mouth and teeth feel so much cleaner and fresher now. The taste is nice, not too overpowering.

  8. I used this listerine total care just once, unfortunately for me it was far to intense and it seemed to burn my mouth to the point my mouth was quite sore for a few hours after, I can however say the after taste was pleasant. My 15yr old son has taken over using this product and he has no complaints and is using it daily. I may buy this in future for my son but I am a bit reluctant to try it again myself. 🙂

    My Hubby and I have been using this for about 10 days now. He has always used a mouth wash so he was fine with this but I found it was to strong and could only do about 15 seconds before I could no longer stand it. I can almost do the full 30 seconds now but I think I will start to dilute it a little – its just too strong for me.
    I do love how fresh my mouth feels afterwards, I can feel assured that my breath is nice and minty when talking to people all morning. If I had something that might be smelly for lunch I have used it again and feel good all arvo.
    I feel like it gets into all the little gaps between my teeth, all over my tongue and gums so gives a great all mouth clean.
    I will definitely be buying this again, perfect for a quick rinse before the dentist too 🙂

  10. we use mouthwash in our home usually just what ever is on special, I must say when I first tried LISTERINE® Total Care® Mouthwash I found it really strong tasting, and it felt like it hurt my teeth I do suffer from sensitive teeth.
    Iv been using it for 10days and in this time iv visited my dentist for a clean and they coated my teeth with fluoride after they had done this the hurting stopped when using Total care, I now really enjoy using it and my teeth are still white from when I had the cleaning done.
    I feel like my breath is fresher and I always grab some total care after iv drank my coffee so I don’t have coffee breath.
    As im growing older im more conscious about looking after my teeth and I think the benefits from Total care is a great way to help me with that.

  11. I used the LISTERINE Total Care Mouthwash for 2 weeks. Firstly, I did love the fact that my mouth felt clean for longer than regular brushing or other mouthwashes I have tried. However, while the flavour is good, it seemed to burn my mouth, the bottle says not to dilute it but I found it way to strong, I tried diluting it with maybe 20% water and I still felt it burning in my mouth, however, any further dilution and I didn’t get the same clean/fresh feeling. I have found the burning feeling with other mouthwashes as well so maybe it is just me. I would recommend it to others as the feeling lasts longer, but I would also warn them about the burning feeling I experienced.
    Thank you for letting me try it out!
