Terrible taste and foaming

I’m a long time user of Listerine and have use many different forms of it. This is the first one that I just plain hate. It taste terrible, it foams up as soon as you put it in your mouth, it doesn’t make you feel that you’ve done anything good for your mouth.

AWFUL

I like to maintain a routine so when I ran out of my regular one I went out and bought the first one I could find which was this one. The claims seemed super nice but I am officially never using this ever again. I tried it the first time and thought I could handle the burn and taste but I can’t. I can hold it in my mouth for a while but once I spit it out it starts to burn! So not only is the aftertaste horrendous but it even starts to foam as well! My understanding is you shouldn’t eat or drink for a while but with this it’s impossible. I had to get something immediately to take away the awful flavor it has. Keep in mind I get regular cleanings and I floss so my gums and teeth are extremely healthy so there is no reason why this should burn.

Horrible!

I am a person who is very consistent with bushing, flossing, and mouthwash. I bought this one by accident instead of the other purple one I like. The taste is terrible, but manageable. But what is up with the fact that it’s sending a SHARP PAIN into my tooth. I read other reviews and see the same issue. Never in my life have I had this issue with mouthwash! I’m extremely dissatisfied with this purchase, and wouldn’t recommend to anyone! I can’t believe this is even on the shelves. Very very unhappy.

Awful burning

Review Questions: 
Age: 18 to 24 years old
Review Text: 
After being told I needed to use a mouthwash with fluoride from the dentist, I decided to give this brand a try. I chose this one hoping the stain remover would help whiten my teeth. Boy was I wrong. I can’t even go 15-20 seconds without spitting it out. It’s burns so bad and is so painful! I first thought maybe it was because I flossed first and thinking I cut my gums and that’s what caused it to burn. But I was so wrong! I’ve used it twice, and I’m going to have throw out the remainder of the mouthwash because I can’t stand it.

Dissapointed

Although the fresh feeling after using this mouthwash was great, that was about the only good thing about it. When using this product the pain and stinging of my entire mouth is unbearable. I am disappointed for wasting money on something that was so promising but had terrible results.

Why does it burn so bad?

I recently ran out of the, "alcohol free Total Care," and decided to try this one. I have used your other moutgwashes that contain alcohol, & they may sting a bit, but this one really hurts.

Terrible and Painful

This is easily the WORST mouthwash I have ever used. First my mom bought it and had to give it to me because if you have any sort of cavity filling or cap it sends sharp pains down them through your gums, so I took it, having no cavities I figured it wouldn’t be too bad. After the first time I used it I had to talk myself into it to use it again then after 3 days it chemically burned a layer off of my gums above a couple of teeth. Painful and taste god awful. PLEASE DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY
