CB12 is a new(ish) mouthwash to the shop – available in regular and mild mint formula it claims to keep bad breath and activity work for up to 12 hours. The people behind CB12 claim that it has been made to tackle the 3 parts of volatile sulphur compounds gases (VSCs) using a unique combination of zinc and chlorhexidine the mouthwash works to eliminate the VSC’s from your breath rather than just mask them.
I was sent a bottle of CB12 Mild Mint format to try out.
I’m a little bit fussy when it comes to mouthwashes I don’t like the taste to be too strong and also the alcohol content has to be either non-existent or at least not too much as I’ve found in the past it has burnt my mouth.
One of the first things that I noticed about this mouthwash was the bottle design – it is made to dispense the exact amount for each use, you pop the lid off turn the bottle upside down with the spout safely over the lid, press the button and tada 10ml is dispensed ready for you rinse (for 30 second to 1 minute) gargle and spit. I find this a useful way to dispense the mouthwash as I shall admit me and making sure I get the right amount don’t go hand in hand and quite often I’ll just use however much I tip out.
While I can’t attest to how well it keeps your breath fresh if you do suffer badly with bad breath it has left my own feeling fresh and it definitely does have a mild mint flavour which is actually quite subtle compared to many other mouthwashes I have used. The one major downside to this mouthwash for me has to be the price – coming in at £14.59 for 250ml (equal to 25 uses) which is not something I could afford right now, however if it was more equal in price to my current mouthwash I could see me being swayed.
Have you tried CB12, what do you think of it?
