Gin And Tonic Mouthwash Tabs

Boy oh boy oh boy! If there is one thing I have learned from the many mouthwashes that I have experienced over the years, it's that some of them can feel as if they're ripping the very skin off the top of your mouth! The lengths that some people will go to to have the cleanest mouths is truly inspiring, and definitely not something that I aspire to follow.

Yet when I tried Gin And Tonic Mouthwash Tabs for the first time, this is exactly what I experienced. Its safe to say that if you're someone who doesn't enjoy feeling as if your mouth is on fire, I would probably avoid these like the plague. These little blue tabs mean absolute business and are certainly a godsend when you have some truly potent-smelling garlic breath you wish to eradicate. 

As I haven't drunk alcohol in any shape or matter for a number of years, I cannot remember the potency of an ice cold Gin And Tonic. However, I'm fairly certain that the after taste of said drink is not as strong as these little tabs, which contain an interesting collaboration of juniperberry, coriander, lime and angelica root oils, to give this mouthwash it's very unique flavour.

As soon as you grind one of these between your teeth and add the water to rinse, you can already taste the amalgamation of flavours coming together in unison. Gin And Tonic is like a intense blend of herbal notes mixed with a powerful current of mental crystals, blended up to create something rather potent yet not at all mint like.

During the swishing process, you cannot really gage much of the taste at all, only that your mouth is beginning to feel rather clean and refreshing in the process. However, as soon as you spilt the mouthwash out, the intense herbal combination fills your mouth and tongue with a strong, robust but rather impressive fresh taste. If you want your mouth to feel brand new, these are definitely a mouthwash tab you'll want to try out for yourself.

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 Gin And Tonic 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.

While I wouldn't say that Gin And Tonic possesses a flavour I particularly enjoy, I cannot fault how clean and crisp my mouth feels afterwards, and the effects of these last for hours after they've been used. I have found myself gravitating towards these more and more as of late, and this tells me that firmly making their way into my daily routine.
