Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome My all time favorite Listerine product but hard to find. Grocery store is always out of it so I bought a different one which came in a huge bottle and cost a lot and was a waste of money: the Total Care Plus Whitening. My mouth felt dry and burned for hours. I am 63 and don't care about whiter teeth. Now I am stuck with this big bottle and have to figure out what I can use it for. December 20, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Miracle product! For reasons way too long to get into, I hadn't gone to the dentist in over 25 years. But I always brushed my teeth with a top-of-the-line electric toothbrush ($200#, best toothpaste on the market, and rinsed with regular Listerine and then Listerine Total Care when launched. I recently went to the dentist #finally# and they were blown away by the condition of my teeth and gums. Had only one additional cavity #small), that's it! Now I do not recommend my situation to anyone but seriously, I do believe Listerine saved my mouth!!! November 13, 2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by Tastes HORRIBLE All of the listerine whitening rinses have a weird foaming-in-the-mouth thing going on. That is tolerable, and they don't leave your tongue blue, or whatever other color/flavor you are using. The problem is with the "Fresh Mint" flavor. It is terrible. Honestly thought it might have been contaminated, due to the putrid taste. September 12, 2013
