Chamomile Wash Mouthwash Tabs

As I have said in many of my earlier reviews of Lush's solid mouthwash tabs, before the company came up with the concept, I had barely even tried a mouthwash before in my life. Brushing my teeth multiple times a day seemed more than adequate enough to maintain a healthy mouth, and up until that point I hadn't even suffered from anything due to poor hygiene. 

However, within days of using the solid mouthwash tabs as part of my routine, it became a habit for me to want to use one after every meal, or to freshen my mouth up a little before I began an afternoon of teaching. It's amazing that something can so quickly become part of your daily routine, and then it's hard to even imagine how you went without it beforehand. 

Chamomile Wash are one of ten brand new variations of mouth wash tabs that have recently appeared in the Lush Liverpool store. Presented as little pale pastel yellow diamonds, these oral tablets are the perfect way to refreshen your breath throughout the day, without needing a sharp burst of flavour to wake you up.

Containing both chamomile oil and a chamomile infusion, it is this sweet and rather herbal plant that makes the biggest impression overall. Alongside the witch hazel, which offers up an strange floral twist, and a generous helping of lemon oil sweeten the whole experience, the fragrance and taste of these mouthwash tabs is a rather unique one.

To my senses, the whole experience tasted like a mug of hot chamomile tea, with a slice of lemon thrown in for good measure. From the bottle, these tabs really do smell like a dried tea bag and the taste is only slightly strengthened when you use one of these in your mouth.

As soon as you grind one of these between your teeth and add the water to rinse and swish, the wonderfully taste of chamomile tea comes out in full force, whilst still being subtle enough that it doesn't simply taste like you're chomping down on a spoonful of tea leaves. The lemon oil adds a gentle sweet, fruitiness to the taste as well, which resonated well with my senses and made my overall experience really quite pleasant.

Afterwards, I found that my mouth felt really clean without there being a strong taste or smell that lingered around. It was almost like brushing your teeth and then drinking a mug of hot tea afterwards, without the flavours clashing as they would do in this situation: my teeth felt clean and shiny; my tongue and gums the same. 

Yet, there was also very little taste in my mouth, which usually I would frown upon, as I like to feel and taste 'protected' for at least a couple of hours after using a mouthwash tab. However, in this case I still felt as if Chamomile Wash was doing its job even though it wasn't very physically present.

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 Chamomile Wash 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, Chamomile 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 lemon chamomile tea, which was lovely. This didn't stay around for very long but I still felt protected for a good couple of hours after using the tab.

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. These mouthwash tabs will definitely prove to be very popular amongst tea drinkers and the like, and I would definitely consider investing in these again in the future.
