Crest Pro-Health Advanced Mouthwash [Review]

I received the purple Crest Pro-Health Advanced Mouthwash. I use it both in the morning & in the evening after I brush my tooth. In the evening I floss before using Crest Pro-Health Mouthwash. I noticed the typical sting of the mouthwash, but I have felt a stronger sting with similar products. The longer I swished it around in my mouth the more intense the sting/burn became.  The aroma of the Crest Pro-Health Advanced Mouthwash was pleasant, it’s a winterfresh mint kind of smell. I must have a cavity starting because once the mouthwash hit that area it hit a nerve. The bottle states to wait for food or drinks for 30 minutes, but by that time there is an unwanted taste in my mouth. My mouth felt clean, but that aftertaste was a bit much for me. I kept rubbing my tongue along my teeth because my teeth almost felt kind sticky, a film or protective coating.

Swishing Crest Pro-Health Advanced Mouthwash

My spouse uses mouthwash more often than I do, at work mostly. This was a welcome change to the other brands that he normally uses. He liked this product just as well, if not better than the brands. The plus side of Crest Pro-Health Mouthwash is that it is alcohol-free. There is no hard alcohol smell when you open the bottle. I noticed that there is a safety cap on the bottle, it must be gripped at the marks on the sides to twist off. This is good for those that have little ones who might be curious about the bright purple liquid in the bottle.

This mouthwash is an addition to the daily dental hygiene and the assistance of preventing activities in addition to regular dental exams.

What I Didn’t like about Crest Pro-Health Advanced Mouthwash:

  • The stinging sensation the longer it stays in your mouth
  • There is after taste that is left in your mouth.
  • Recommended a wait of 30 minutes before having any food or drink.

What I Do like about Crest Pro-Health Advanced Mouthwash:

  • There is no strong alcohol smell or taste. It’s 100% alcohol free
  • Safety (twist) cap
  • It does give a clean fresh feel to the teeth.
  • The price is reasonable at $6

Crest Pro-Heath Advanced Mouthwash

I would recommend this to family & friends. There is a certain amount of burning or stinging when using any mouthwash or oral rinse. However, Crest  Pro-Health Advanced doesn’t have a strong burning sensation compared to other mouthwashes I have used in the past.

Truly Radiant [Review]

I recieved the New Arm & Hammer Truly Radiant Toothpaste and the Truly Radiant Spinbrush from Smiley360. I was rather excited to get this. I had seen it out in stores recently, wondered how well it worked. I am conscious about my teeth since I’ve had braces, oral surgeries since I was little. All that for a beautiful smile, so dental products are always a plus for me.

Arm & Hammer is a multi-brand company that makes several products such as laundry care products, household deodorizers, personal care, pet care products. It is a trusted brand. The Truly Radiant toothpaste contains baking soda for fresh breath and removing plague. Active Calcium is for strengthening the tooth enamel. The loss of tooth enamel can cause sensitivity when eating hot & cold foods, along with tooth decay.  The peroxide assists in removing stains, restoring gloss to the teeth. The Truly Radiant Spinbrush has a switch on/off button. The button can also be held down for manual control. It requires 2 AA batteries and the brush head is replaceable.

I didn’t like:

  • When first using it, the toothbrush is very powerful. It does take some getting used to, if you’re not used to powered brushes.
  • The toothpaste does have a slight burning or stinging sensation (if you’re not used to it). I couldn’t wait to wipe it off my chin, because of the sensation. Continuing to get used to the product, the toothpaste isn’t as harsh as the first time.
  • As far as tongue brushing, the Spinbrush takes some getting used to. I shut it off for the tongue brushing.

I did like:

  • That after using the Spinbrush for the first time, using it like an actual dental brush it seemed to be much more comfortable. I brushed each tooth separately just like at a dental cleaning appointment.
  • I liked the way my teeth felt after brushing. A smooth, clean, just walked out of the dentist office feel.
  • That the Spinbrush heads are replaceable. A package of two heads costs around $9.00, that should last six months. I toss my toothbrush every 3 months or so.
  • That the Spinbrush works on 2 AA batteries.
  • The design of the brush head. There is a circle at the top with two rings of elongated bristles, which changes colors when its time to replace the head. Then there is the bottom half of the brush that moves up & down.
  • I take more time brushing my teeth, more aware of cleaning each tooth.
  • Inexpensive & effective.

My Recommendation: This oral hygiene product is easy to use. Although it may take some getting used to, if you’re not used to powered toothbrushes. It’s worth the cost. The Spinbrush runs around $9.00 and the toothpaste runs around $4.00.  I’m 100% satisfied with both the toothpaste and spinbrush. I will continue to use this product.

[I received these products complimentary from Smiley360 for testing purposes. The opinion above is 100% mine.]
