Zing! Mouthwash Tabs

If you're going to start your day off as you mean to go on, some times nothing less than bright pink mouthwash tabs will be suffice. Whether you have a sweet tooth; love everything that's the colour pink; or are simply bored stiff of your usual mouthwash, these brand new little tabs might just be what you're looking for.

Zing! describes perfectly how these tabs look and taste and once you have tried them you will no doubt agree with me. In fact, if you have any reluctant older children who don't find enjoyment in brushing their teeth, these might be the perfect tool for reigniting that excitement and getting some quality extra cleaning into their routine, after they have finished brushing their teeth.

Looking like a packet straight out of a sweet shop, these wonderful little tabs offer a bright and very fruity grapefruit note from the moment you remove the lid. Coupled with the juicy addition of the litsea cubeba oil, these mouth wash tabs really do look and smell like a packet of fruity candy. In all honesty, I would probably be happy to eat the whole tub because they are so tasty, even though I wouldn't even want to imagine what would be happening to my insides after doing so.

As to be expected, Zing! Mouthwash Tabs taste equally as delicious as well. Both of the aforementioned ingredients, along with the mandarin oil comes out in full force here and presents a slightly reserved rendition of the scent itself. As you have quite a few citrus fruits featured in the ingredients list, there is definitely something zesty and almost 'fizzy' about the taste of these tabs that I loved. However, consumers will no doubt notice that they are a little more powdery and perhaps a little less fruity than what the initial fragrance promises.

As soon as you grind one of these between your teeth and add the water to rinse and swish, you can already taste the amalgamation of flavours coming together in unison. 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 wonderful sherbet-like fruitiness fills your mouth and leaves a lasting impression. It was very much like eating dessert every time I used one of these tabs.

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 Zing! 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.

What I will say about Zing! is that these mouthwash tabs are not suitable if you're someone who likes to feel the refreshing sting of the flavour in your mouth immediately afterwards; those who enjoy feeling the fire of the ingredients burning away every germ and smell that could possibly have been living in your mouth at that very moment.

These tabs are more about leaving your mouth feeling refreshed and clean, without any noticeable nasty food odours remaining, whilst leaving behind a sweet and playful fruity taste instead of something too pungent and clinical. On a day-to-day basis, these would be better suited for freshening up after a meal at work or before a meeting; perhaps not the best choice if you want something super powerful before bed. Having said that, I happen to really like Zing! and I will continue using these whenever my sweet tooth needs to be reprimanded.
