Palma Violet Mouthwash Tabs

I think any child that loved the classic Palma Violet sweets grew into an adult knowing very few other people that felt the same. We were a rare bunch of weirdos: glad to take the odd, soapy-tasting sweets that were always discarded at the bottom of the bag. And it's because of these experiences that I feel as if Palma Violet fans are usually pretty obsessed with anything that smells or tastes remotely like the original candy.

Consumers will be very pleased to hear then that Lush's brand new Palma Violet Mouthwash Tabs smell and taste exactly like the original sweets. So much so that it's only a matter of time before someone comes forward proclaiming that they've eaten an entire bottle because of their lack of restraint.

Presented as beautiful little pastel purple diamonds and lightly dusted with silver lustre, these oral tablets are the perfect way to refreshen your breath. Containing both violet leaf absolute and bergamot oil, it is the former that makes the biggest impression. Sweet and powdery, the violet offers a delicate floral aroma with gentle notes of greenery, while the bergamot adds a gentle sweetness that ties it all together.

What I loved about these mouthwash tabs was that they also featured fresh pansies in the ingredients list, which no doubt added to the overall aroma as well as the wonderful taste that Palma Violet Mouthwash Tabs offered me each and every day. Needless to say, if you were never a fan of these classic sweets, I would avoid these tabs like the plague.

As soon as you grind one of these between your teeth and add the water to rinse and swish, the wonderfully musky taste of the violet comes out in full force, whilst still being subtle in the way that it does this. It is here that the bergamot comes out a little more prominently and I enjoyed the delicate grassy taste that I could detect on my tongue after I had spit the mouthwash into the sink.

For those who have never used a mouthwash tab before, you simply crunch the tab between your teeth (I prefer to do this with my front teeth), take a slurp of water and begin swishing as you would a bottled mouthwash. Once you've finished, you spit the water into the sink and you're ready to brace the rest of the day without worrying about smelly breath, or the food from your lunch remaining stuck between your teeth. Lush recommend that you keep the mouthwash swishing around your mouth for a good minute before spitting it out, as this allows the ingredients to get to work at cleaning the mouth and deodorising the tongue so you get the maximum results possible.

As you would expect from Lush, the ingredients that have gone into making Palma Violet have also been carefully crafted and serve a purpose. Firstly, they contain sodium bicarbonate, which is a natural softening ingredient that is also known for its ability to clean and deodorise at the same time. This is a key component that will help to clean your tongue, gums and teeth when you're swishing, and will help to rid your mouth of any strong odours that might be present at the time, freshening your breath in the process.

Each of the mouthwashes also contains xylitol, a natural substance that is found in certain fruits and vegetables and is used in foods and cosmetics as a refined sweetener. This ingredient has been proven to cause none of the harmful effects that sugar can have on the teeth; is perfect for diabetics as it doesn't effect blood sugar levels at all; yet offers the sweetness to help give these tabs their interesting but enjoyable flavours.

Whether you're popping out for a day at the beach; making a weekend trip to see the family; or jet-setting off to somewhere exciting, these 45g bottles can be tucked away with the assurance that you wont arrive at your destination with either soggy luggage, or with the lingering smells of your breakfast still festering on your tongue. Furthermore, they're also alcohol-free so these beauties wont cause you any issues when you're going through customs. No matter the length of your journey, these are handy to use at any time of the day: before you head out on your adventure; after a meal; or anytime you feel you need a little freshen up.

If you haven't guessed already, Palma Violet Mouthwash Tabs are more suited for those who enjoy a delicate cleaning of the palette, and these beauties definitely do that. After rinsing my mouth out, I was able to taste a wonderful but equally gentle sweet taste of violet. This stayed with me for all of my two hour gym session and probably would have lingered even longer if I hadn't eaten.

Having said that, the taste you're left with is very subtle, so if you're someone who enjoys a stronger experience you may wish to try one of Lush's other variations. These won't give you the strongest, freshest breath but they will leave your mouth clean of germs and smells. Not only did these mouthwash tabs give me a wonderful trip down memory lane but they've been my go-to mouthwash tabs for the last few weeks, which tells me that I will be investing in these again.
