I was recently offered the chance to review some products from CB12, which claim to "kill bad breath" I've seen various tv ads for these products but never felt the need to purchase as I don't suffer from bad breath...not that I know of anyway haha! But given the chance to review the products I thought why not! I was kindly send a few bottles of Mouth Rinse and a couple of packets of Chewing Gum to try out.
CB12 Rinse* comes in two refreshing flavours - Mint Menthol and Mild Mint Menthol both offering the same instant action to protect against bad breath for up to 12 hours! All you need to do is gargle and rinse your mouth with 10ml of CB12 for between 30-60 seconds then spit. The unique formula, containing flouride to prevent tooth decay, binds chemically to the tissue in the oral cavity and neutralises to prevent the formation of substances which cause bad breath. There are 3 sizes available in the CB12 rinse; 50ml (ideal for travelling), 250ml and 1ltr. I was sent two of the smaller 50ml sizes, and 1 of the 250ml bottle, which comes with a pump action to help you deliver the right amount of product into the cup.
Results: I preferred the taste of the Mild version as the normal Mint was a little too strong for liking. The product was easy to use and I used the product as stated for two separate tests... First off before going to sleep at night - when I woke up my breath was still nice and fresh, great! Secondly I've been using it on a morning after brushing my teeth before going to work, I have noticed that my mouth has felt fresher and cleaner since using the product too. Overall a brilliant product and I would definitely recommend trying this out - maybe try the 50ml size first for £4.39. Although its a little more expensive than normal mouthwashes, its worth it in my opinion.
CB12 Boost* is a new product and is a sugar-free mint flavoured chewing gum. It offers an instantly refreshing effect and is designed to prevent bad breath. Whilst the CB12 rinse can work for up to 12 hours, if you're at work or out for long hours during the day you may want to freshen your breath after your morning coffee or dinner break etc? Well this is where CB12 gum comes into play, you get an instant burst of minty freshness as soon as you start chewing! The double action formula contains sodium fluoride and xylitol which strengthens the teeth and reduces plaque as well as active ingredient Zinc to prevent bad breath.
Results: I've been using Boost in the place of my ordinary Extra White chewing gum on a daily basis whilst I'm at work after drinks and lunch time, I really like the taste of these, and the way it gives you an instant boost of fresh mint flavour. Not to mention after you've chewed the gum for a little while I almost feel like I've just brushed my teeth, my mouth is not only fresh, but feels clean too! Again these are a little pricey at £4.99 for a pack of 10 pieces - but they really are superior to any other gum I've tried before.
CB12 products are available to buy from selected pharmacies including Boots, Lloyds,Co-Operative, and Rowlands. You can even purchase online with discreet packaging!
Overall, a great range of products, which really work! They not only prevent against bad breath but also offer other benefits for your oral health too.
