Leaves Film in Mouth

Review Questions:

Review Text: 
I've been using this product for a few weeks and I started noticing a film over my teeth and among the gums that I can literally pull out of my mouth. I see after doing some searching that this might be sloughing. That's worrying since I don't want the skin in my mouth to burn off using this product. I switched from the alcohol version of this mouthwash for a milder version, but this may be turning out to be a bad switch.

Mostly okay but sloughing.

I've seen other reviews that mention the same side effect: sloughing of the mucosa inside the mouth. This is the only side effect I was not expecting and I wonder if the essential oils may cause this in certain individuals. I didn't know there even were essential oils until I found the review page. Oops. Please make sure these "new" ingredients are more prominently featured for new user awareness!!! On a positive note, my gums feel better and my teeth are literally squeaky clean now. I may switch between this and another mouthwash to avoid possible long term effects of the sloughing though.

Causing Severe Sloughing.

Review Questions: 
State: Montana
Age: 35-44
Review Text: 
I've been using Cool-Mint Listerine with Alcohol for many years now with good results. But I was worried about the Alcohol long term effects and I get a very dry mouth from it. So I switch to the Listerine Cool-Mint Alcohol version and I thought it was great.... at first that is. The first couple days of using the product I got some sloughing. I figured it was my gums getting adjusted to the new mouth wash. But after two weeks of using this product, I get severe sloughing everyday. My gums are now extra sensitive and irritated. This Alcohol free version is too potent with the chemicals that are in it. I'm going to stop using Listerine and any store bought mouth wash that has any chemicals in. From now on it's all natural or nothing at all.

Cap is NOT for arthritic hands!

I've been using Listerene mouthwashes for over 20 years. I recently switched to the zero alcohol because the other was too strong for me. I know the caps are the same, but they have become increasingly harder to use as the arthritis in my hands gets worse. Tonight, I have given up and thrown my new bottle in the garbage because I CANNOT OPEN IT! I don't have the strength any longer. WHY don't you make the caps more user friendly?

Great For Sensitives

Review Questions:

Review Text: 
I am a person who is very sensitive to strong flavors, so regular mouthwashes with alcohol are intolerable for me. I love that I can swish Listerine Zero Clean Mint Mouthwash for the recommended time without discomfort and the urgent need to spit out the product in a panic. Highly recommended for it's usability and resulting freshness. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

My 97 year old mother loves this as it's alcohol free and mild on your mouth. I like it to for the same reasons but wish it was a little more potent and lasting longer. My dentist always recommends alcohol free! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
