Give bad breath the brush off with The Breath Co
So you have a hot date on the card and a cheeky kiss at the end of the evening is in your sights....fresh smelling breath is a No1 priority is it not?......well there is a new product on the block hailing from the USA that claims to fight bad breath, lasts for 12 hours and even better works INSTANTLY!!
The Breath Co is a range of naturally oral care products made from only pure ingredients meaning:
Vegetarian/Vegan/kosher and Gluten Free
The brand was created by Dr Harold Katz who is recognised expert on the subjects of breath care and oral health. There are 3 products in the range - an oral rinse (mouthwash), toothpaste and mouth wetting lozengers (new one on me!!!)
So firstly the toothpaste. Comes in a fairly cumbersome box with quite Americanised branding. Its both anti cavity and anti tartar and states its naturally oxygenating. It has a whole heap of benefits including:
Works instantly on bad breath
Help control dry mouth
Recommended for canker sores
Also approved for Diabetics
The test - So due to the way this toothpaste is made its tastes quite different to the normal toothpastes you are most probably used to - firstly its very mild in flavour and secondly the consistency takes a bit of getting used to as its very watery - turning to liquid as soon as it hits your mouth, so quite a different feeling when brushing.....its weird, you feel like its not going to be strong enough to do anything....however once you get over the initial weirdness you will realise that this is a damn good toothpaste. Teeth feel squeaky clean, breath is fresh - and the feeling last for ages. It is quite pricey at around £8.99 - though if you hop over to Boots they currently have it retailing for £5.99 saving you a whopping £3.
So next onto the oral rinse - this comes in 2 varieties one is mild mint and the one i trailed was the Invigorating Icy mint. Again a fairly big bottle. For best results it says to rinse for a minute with 1 cup and then gargle for 30 seconds with another cup. Again this isn't a strong tasting flavour, but it is alot stronger than the toothpaste. Same benefits as the toothpaste but also is non burning and alcohol free. Breath and mouth felt clean and fresh after use.....and is most definitely kiss approved!!
This is the priciest of the 3 products at around £13.99 a bottle (Boots again have it on sale with £4.66 off) however if you do have breath /mouth issue or just generally like to spend a bit more on oral care then this is a quality product. Its also really helpful for ailments such as tonsil health and sore gums.
Last but not least the wetting lozengers.....not something Iv ever come across before but they are designed to combat dry mouth and freshen breath also. They combine Zinc, Oxygen and Xylitol which basically attacks all those nasty germs in your mouth that causes bad breath - they also include a 'mouth wetting agent' that stimulate your saliva production. The taste again is quite mild....but leaves your mouth with a nice fresh feeling....and yep I can confirm the mouth wetting does work!!
Again these are a bit pricey at £8.99 for a pack of 72 - and Boots again have got £3 off so grab yourself a bargain.
So overall this is a really good brand - yes it is at the pricier end of the scale but you get results and for the many people out there that suffer with breath problems this could be the breath of fresh air they were waiting for. For me the best part of the brand is the natural element - no alcohol and no nasties, leaving you with a naturally fresh, clean and happy mouth......and an even happier hot date!!
Thanks to the lovely Nadine at esparkle PR for allowing me to test this brand xx
