Act Cool Splash Mint Mouthwash Review

Mouthwash in a cup allows for dental rinse after brushing

The oral health market is an increasingly saturated one, and with multiple different types of mouthwash on the market that all promise to solve a variety of different dental issues, it can be difficult to determine which suits your needs best. The ACT Cool Splash Mint Mouthwash claims to be restoring for your teeth and gums so for those of us seeking a reprieve from ongoing oral health issues, this could be the go-to product. To help you determine whether it’s right for you, we are going to look at this product to see if it is good enough to be a new addition to your nightly routine.

What does it do?

This mouthwash promises to do one of many things – in addition to the traditional mouthwash use of killing bad breath, it also helps to rebuild the enamel on your teeth overnight as you sleep. This is especially useful for those of us who indulge in a little too much sugar, as this can weaken the enamel. This mouthwash is to be used with other oral hygiene products in order to ensure that you get the very best of clean breath possible.

How Much Is It?

The price of the product is different dependant on where you buy the product from. Those of us living outside of the USA could see online retailers such as Amazon offering this product for £14.24, while those within the USA can find American stores offering it for much cheaper, often around $6.

Where Is It Sold?

Due to the ACT being an American brand, it is primarily sold in most US supermarkets including the likes of CVS and Walmart. However, it is also possible to order this from the UK – just remember that it will cost you considerably more due to import costs and is available online from Amazon. It is important that you consider this when purchasing the product as this can have a profound effect on the price that you will pay.

Benefits

The benefits of this mouthwash are plentiful, in that it allows you to have clean breath whilst rebuilding and strengthening the enamel on the surface of your teeth. This is especially important in the younger age groups as it will ensure that they are protected against cavities, and if this product is too harsh of a taste for your little ones, ACT also offers kids versions of their mouthwash with friendlier flavours like watermelon, ocean berry and bubblegum.

Additionally, the standard size of a bottle is around 1 litre and gives you plenty of product for the money that you pay. What’s more, despite the value for money in the amount of product that you get, the overall size isn’t over the top, making it easy to pop it in a cupboard with minimal difficulty.

Drawbacks

The biggest drawback of this product is that it has limited availability outside of the United States. For those of us living abroad, this makes it more expensive when purchasing it online, and can, therefore, seem like a waste of money when so many products claim to do the same thing. The taste can also prove harsh for younger mouths, however, it’s worth noting that there are child-friendly flavours from this brand that claim to do similar or even the same thing.

With all this in mind, this mouthwash is definitely a contender when it comes to your nightly routine. With a substantial size for an affordable price within the USA, it is a good value addition to your oral health care.
