Used this once, and my gums and cheeks had a serious layer peel off. Super gross, uncomfortable, and makes me seriously worried about what's in this product. Would never, ever use again.

The Sloughing Continues

Review Questions: 
State: Missouri
Age: 18-24
Review Text: 
I hate to join the chorus of nay-sayers, but the sloughing/skin peeling happened to me as well. When I mouthwash with it before bed, I wake up with a disturbing amount of dead skin in my mouth and cheeks. I gave it a week because I thought maybe it just took some time, but the peeling persists. I'm simply not convinced that this is normal, and I'd need the ADA or some other group of dentists to confirm that this isn't harmful before I'd use this product again unfortunately. Sorry, but I don't recommend. Regular Listerine is still chill tho!

We are sorry to hear that you’re having this experience while using our product. It sounds like you are experiencing what is called ‘sloughing.’ While sloughing is not a common side effect we expect from using LISTERINE® TOTAL CARE ZERO FRESH MINT Anticavity Mouthwash, it can happen in some people. Please know that this is harmless. You can still use this product, but if you prefer using something else, we recommend trying Listerine® Cool Mint or Listerine Total Care. If you stop using the product but sloughing continues, please talk to your dentist.

I tried the alcohol version and experienced my mouth peeling occasionally. I switched to the non-alcoholic version and the skin on the inside of my lip and my cheeks is just coming off, its horrible. Do NOT use this product.

When I use this product, the inside of my mouth is filled with gush from peeling inside. Not a pleasant feeling to have in your mouth. Very concerned about what is being done inside my mouth.

i have terrible dry mouth and layers of my cheeks coming off in chunks since i started using this product about a week ago. i thought maybe after a few days it would stop but it continues. the dry mouth lasts all day. after reading other reviews today and posting mine, i will discontinue using this mouthwash effective immediately. too many people are experiencing the same thing. something is not right with this mouthwash.
