The Good: Seriously eliminates dry mouth and bad breath
The Bad: Does not leave one’s mouth feeling as fresh as it actually is.
The Basics: Biotene Fresh Mint Dry Mouth Fluoride Toothpaste does what it promises, but no more.
It has been so long since I wrote a review of an oral care product that I found myself wondering if I could still do justice to one! So, because I was in the mood today to write a brief review, I thought it would be fun to review my current toothpaste. That is Biotene Fresh Mint Dry Mouth Fluoride Toothpaste and it is a toothpaste that is hard to recommend, despite the fact that it does exactly what it promises.
Biotene Fresh Mint Dry Mouth Fluoride Toothpaste is a toothpaste designed to eliminate oral irritations that are caused by dry mouth. You know that feeling when you first wake up where your mouth tastes dry or like there is a film over your tongue? There usually is a build-up of sulfur or other chemicals on your tongue that causes that dry taste and/or coloring on your tongue. Biotene Fresh Mint Dry Mouth Fluoride Toothpaste is specifically designed to cut through that film and restore your mouth to a state of health whereby you can actually taste things you consume better and no longer suffer from the recurring feeling of dry mouth.
Biotene Fresh Mint Dry Mouth Fluoride Toothpaste is a smooth white paste found inside a very standard toothpaste tube. Access is simple; unscrew the plastic cap on the toothpaste tube. This allows you access to the white paste and simply squeezing the tube allows you to dispense it. It is a fairly thick toothpaste without any grit. I recommend putting enough toothpaste on your toothbrush to cover all of the bristles.
Brushing with Biotene Fresh Mint Dry Mouth Fluoride Toothpaste is a surreal experience. First, the toothpaste does not foam up or lather, the way every other toothpaste I have ever used does. For that reason, I recommend no skimping on it when you are putting it on your brush. Second, the pearlescent white toothpaste does not taste minty at all. Instead, it tastes like a slightly chalky vanilla frosting with an aftertaste of mint. For the third odd aspect, Biotene Fresh Mint Dry Mouth Fluoride Toothpaste does not leave one’s breath smelling minty fresh. In fact, Biotene Fresh Mint Dry Mouth Fluoride Toothpaste does one leave one’s mouth feeling fresh at all.
Despite what appear to be complaints about Biotene Fresh Mint Dry Mouth Fluoride Toothpaste, I have to say that this toothpaste was refreshing in that it did exactly what it claimed to. Each time I have used Biotene Fresh Mint Dry Mouth Fluoride Toothpaste, my mouth has come away fresh, clean and without bad breath. However, unlike most toothpastes, Biotene Fresh Mint Dry Mouth Fluoride Toothpaste does not leave one’s breath smelling like mint (or cinnamon or anything else artificial from the toothpaste). Instead, Biotene Fresh Mint Dry Mouth Fluoride Toothpaste eradicates all of the causes of bad breath without adding any new scents.
Biotene Fresh Mint Dry Mouth Fluoride Toothpaste is a no-frills toothpaste, but it leaves my mouth feeling fresh for several hours and even if my breath does not smell temporarily minty, it does not smell bad for hours. This, at the very least, makes this unexciting toothpaste exceptionally effective and worth buying.
