CB12 Mild Mint Mouthwash: Review

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.

CB12 Mild MintI’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?

    I’ve never heard of it, but I am always paranoid about my breath, so I would love to give it a try!

  3. Theresa   •  

    I haven’t heard of this, but I agree with you on the alcohol of other mouth washes burning. I like a non alcohol mouthwash. This one sounds refreshing!

  7. Joanna Sormunen   •  

    It sounds really good. But like you say, the price is just too much for a mouthwash.

    I’m always wary of mouthwash because too many are so strong. I think I would like to give this one a try.

  9. Jennifer   •  

    Wow on the price. I love the idea of it dispensing the right amount. I have a teenager that always pours a cap full and then uses what he needs pouring the rest down the drain – drives me crazy.

    This appears to be a good design so that you don’t have waste. And since mouthwash can be expensive, that is important.

    I have heard of this product and thought it would be great to try. Many have wondered what makes our breath pong in the morning when we brushed our teeth the night before – it’s the bacteria, not what you eat. It is a little pricey for my liking though – I’d rather just brush more often lol. Great if you’re in a new relationship though, and paranoid about morning breath :-)

    Looks a more sensitive alternative to conventional mouthwash.
