    Supposed to Turn my Teeth White, Not my Gums...

    Review Questions: 
    Age: 18 to 24 years old
    Review Text: 
    In my life I’ve had eight regular teeth pulled, four wisdom teeth, and braces for six years. Rinsing with this mouth wash for thirty seconds was the most painful and terrifying oral experience I’ve ever had. Not only did it burn like fire, after spitting it out I noticed that much of my lower gums and the inside of my cheeks had, to my horror, turned white. Half an hour later, they had mostly returned to their normal color, but the whole bottom right side of my mouth felt like it had been hit with a numbing shot. It seems many people have had issues with this mouthwash causing their mouth skin to peel off in great strips and chunks, as well as temporary loss of taste and painful canker sores. I wish I had read these reviews before using the product.

    I absolutely LOVE this formula of Listerine! It does everything that the product claims to do. The mouthwash does burn for a moment, but most do. That's how you know that germs and bacterial are being killed. The taste is mild and leaves your mouth feeling totally clean and refreshed. I have sensitive teeth and this product (in addition to my sensitive toothpaste) work extremely well together. Kudos to the makers of this formula! I have and will continue to use this Total Care Stain Remover Mouthwash and it is highly recommended. The price was reasonable for the high quality of the mouthwash. Thanks Listerine!!!!

    Makes the Skin inside my Mouth Peel Off

    Review Questions: 
    Age: 18 to 24 years old
    Review Text: 
    Bought this product this yesterday and used it for the first time this morning. After using it, it made the skin on the inside of my mouth, from my cheeks and gums, peel off in very large chunks. This product does the exact opposite of what it is marketed as doing, and is in fact not at all healthy for your mouth. I will never buy another Listerine product again, and would encourage anyone to never use this product either.

Please know that this is harmless! We'd really like to chat more and see how we can help, so give us a call at ​1-888-222-0182 from 9am - 5:30pm ET, Monday through Friday. Thanks!

    Not for Sensitive Teeth

    Review Questions: 
    Age: 18 to 24 years old
    Review Text: 
    Originally, I was super excited about trying this product, however, upon using it I experienced an immediate throbbing pain as a result of one of my teeth's sensitivity to the mouthwash. I'm not exactly sure what ingredient within the product is causing the sensitivity, but I've never experienced such an intense reaction in regard to using a mouthwash. I use mouthwash daily and have for years, but I definitely won't be purchasing this one again!

    CANKER SORES! CONTAINS SODIUM LAURYL SULFATE!! BEWARE

    Review Questions: 
    Age: 35 to 44 years old
    Review Text: 
    After my first and only use I woke up with canker sores! A quick Google searches returned that this is common with this horrible product. Sodium Lauryl SULFATE does not belong in mouthwash. I WILL NEVER BUY AGAIN. I should've checked the ingredients first.

    Gum and cheek peeling

    Review Questions: 
    Age: 18 to 24 years old
    Review Text: 
    My dentist recommended the zero alcohol to me yesterday when I said I hated mouthwash because of the intense burning sensation. There was still a burning sensation, albeit not as much, but the texture of my mouth became rough immediately after, and this morning my gums and inner cheek were peeling off in white, fleshy ribbons. They now feel raw and are still coming off when I try to eat. My mother had mentioned she had issues with Listerine in the past, and considering that it seems many people have the same issue and are even mentioning teeth browning, I don't think I'll bother letting my dad try to finish the bottle.

    2 nights of use, sense of taste has diminished.

    Review Text: 
    I bought this product to try out and after using this mouthwash for 2 nights in a row, my sense of taste seems flat. I am able to taste some things but I can definitely tell that my taste is off. I noticed there was a lot of foam as I was swishing the product around and the after taste was off-putting. I noticed after waking up in the morning, my taste was dulled. I have never experienced anything like this before with other Listerine mouthwashes. I will not be continuing this product for these reasons. I’m just sorry that I purchased the biggest bottle of this mouthwash.

    Leaves Film in Mouth

    Review Questions: 
    Age: 45 to 54 years old
    Review Text: 
    I've been using this product for a few weeks and I started noticing a film over my teeth and among the gums that I can literally pull out of my mouth. I see after doing some searching that this might be sloughing. That's worrying since I don't want the skin in my mouth to burn off using this product. I switched from the alcohol version of this mouthwash for a milder version, but this may be turning out to be a bad switch.
