I really like this Crest Pro Health. It seems to really leave my mouth clean and freshen my breath. I like that it is alcohol free. It doesn't burn my mouth. My nine-year-old seems to like it also. seems very effective. This is the first time that I've ever bought it I'd say it's about Halfway Gone I would recommend this to others and I would buy this again. ...read more

Colgate Optic White Mouthwash is not only alcohol-free, it helps to whiten your teeth as you rinse with a dose of hydrogen peroxide.

I love this mouthwash! I also use the Colgate Optic White Whitening Toothpaste and they combination makes my mouth feel so clean.

Tom’s of Maine is known for its natural formulas, and their mouthwashes are no exception. This one is clinically-proven to give you fresh breath, formulated with zinc to neutralize odors and without alcohol so you don’t have to worry about burn.

I have ALWAYS hated mouthwash ever since I was a kid. I would never use it; it would burn my mouth, leave my mouth feeling like it had ice burn (i'm looking at you Listerine!) When I came across Tom's mouthwash I decided to try it out because I wanted my mouth to feel fresher and to also nourish my teeth a bit more. Seeing that this mouth wash wasnt a bright blue or green made it more appealing and is what made me actually grab it. I don't mind this mouth wash at all! It doesnt make my mouth burn or eyes water and leaves my mouth feeling clean and refreshed while leaving my breath super fresh! ...read more

Our Take

Sure, ACT’s Bubblegum Blowout may have been formulated for kids, but its alcohol-free formula may make you reconsider grown-up versions. It helps to reduce cavities up to 40 percent more than with just brushing and won’t burn.

My son loves this mouthwash. He hates brushing his teeth but if he knows he can use this mouthwash after it he is more willing to brush his teeth without putting up a fight. He loves the flavor and it does not burn or sting him mouth. Plus I feel it helps him to get his mouth cleaner than brushing alone since he wants to rush and brush his teeth as fast as he can to get it over with. ...read more
