Gospels Mouthwash Tabs

Over the last couple of years, Lush have branched out their ideas for new products, with a key focus being to create more naked cosmetics that will not only to reduce the carbon footprint of their customers, but do the same for themselves as a company as well. Their introduction of the solid mouthwash tabs was easily one of their most innovative concepts, and these little beauties have definitely made other companies think about the future of their brand as well. 

Gospels is one of a handful of Lush Showcase exclusive mouthwash tabs that have yet to hit the stores: still under the guise of prototype until the company decide what to do with them. Thanks to a wonderful member of the Lush community, I have managed to get my hands on a few of each to try, and I'm excited to say that these are just as delicious and effective as the releases we have seen so far.

While I'm yet to learn everything about this pastel pink gem, what I do know is that Gospels is made from a combination of rose, myrrh and geranium, which would automatically make you assume that the scent and taste of this one is going to be highly floral. What makes this limited edition so wonderful is that this is not the case at all. 

Smell wise, this mouthwash tab is actually fairly reserved and warming: the inclusion of the myrrh definitely adds a sweet, rounded base with a gentle resinous twinge. Both the geranium and the rose feature as well in fragrance, giving the tabs a slightly powdery floral aroma. From the bottle, I can see why these tabs might come across as quite intimidating as the fragrance is rather potent, and you'd be correct if you assumed this would also mean the taste was quite overwhelming.

As soon as I bit into one of these tabs, my mouth immediately flooded with a taste that somewhere between being really sweet and heavily floral. Both the davana and rose oils work in perfect unison here because had either ingredient been unbalanced, I can only imagine how disgusting these mouthwash tabs would have been.

Imagine the powdery, sweet rose taste of freshly made Turkish delight, with a sultry resinous flavour from the myrrh and yo may begin to understand what Gospels taste like. These are definitely a very acquired taste and one that many consumers may have to 'get used to' before they actually really enjoy these. I know that it took me multiple uses before I truly understood and appreciated the complexity and taste of these mouthwash tabs, and I can imagine that many other people will be the same.

To use a solid mouth wash tab, you simply crunch the tab between your teeth, take a slurp of water and begin swishing. Once you've finished, you then spit the water into the sink and your whole mouth should feel super clean and refreshed: ready to brace the rest of the day without worrying about smelly breath or food from your lunch remaining stuck between your teeth. It's recommended that you keep the mouthwash in your mouth for a good minute. 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 all three of the mouthwash varieties have also been carefully crafted and serve a purpose. Firstly, they all 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.

Gospels Mouthwash Tabs immediately foamed up in my mouth and the results I experienced was a mouth that felt wonderfully clean and a tongue left without a single bad smell. No matter what you've eaten before using one, these limited editions will remove any unwanted smells and tastes immediately from your palette. However, you will need to be someone who'll appreciate the odd but rather sweet floral fragrance that remains in your mouth for a good couple of hours afterwards, otherwise the outcome of these tabs is pointless.

Ultimately, these mouthwash tabs do exactly what you'd expect them to and are the perfect accompaniment for short excursions and long trips away. They'll slip into a pocket or just about any space you have and can offer a quick solution for those moments when you feel like refreshing your oral health.  

As far as tastes go, I did eventually enjoy the flavour of these mouthwash tabs, although they were never one of my favourite tastes overall. While they worked wonders at cleansing my palette and leaving my teeth feeling super clean and shiny, there are far better tasting alternatives that I think I'd rather choose over Gospels, and for that reason I cannot imagine buying these again when there are so many other flavours on offer.
