MY REVIEW:
  I am a baby when it comes to oral care, if it stings I don't use it.  Which is why I NEVER USE MOUTHWASH!!  I know horrible right?  Well, I just can't do it.  My mouth is so sensitive to the "tingles" of Listerine that I can't bare to do it, and the taste of Crest mouthwash, no way!  Before I even have a cap full in my mouth I am already leaning over the sink and spitting it as quickly as I can into the sink, then I follow that by a few minutes (maybe as many as five) of "rinsing" my mouth out with cold/luke warm water.  I know it sounds like a terrible thing to have to go through twice a day, so I just don't.  I would rather not experience such terrible feelings.  That is until now.  I have been having extra sensitivity in my teeth for a couple months but didn't think anything of it, I assumed it was the regular sensitivity that I have.  Then of course because there is no better time than Christmas when everyone is going on holidays and there is not a dentist to be found in my office, I need to go.  Then again, there is only one dentist there anyway and he's been my dentist my entire life so I'd rather wait out the holidays and see him in the new year.
  All was going as planned until one day the pain was so much I couldn't bare to eat anything.  Well I tried out this awesome toothpaste (I will review that tonight too) and bought this Listerine Total Care.  I thought, if something was going to work then this was what had to work.  I have seen the commercial for both products and they sounded great.  As I was searching around in my mirror, very hard to see the back of your mouth but I was trying hard, I discovered that I have two cavities in my wisdom teeth, which I'm sure aren't going to feel too pleasant to get them fixed but secondly, I needed a temporary plan of action until then because I really was having difficulty eating or drinking anything.  So, I tried this Listerine and holy cow, I LOVE IT!  Mind you, I don't use the whole cap full, yet, but I'm working my way up to it.  I have found this to be a lot more tolerable of a tingle and I actually really enjoy swishing it around in my mouth.  When I spit it out (I don't last as long as my husband with his mouthwash but I'm just thrilled I can do it at all), I do not use any water to rinse out this mouthwash, it leaves my mouth feeling gently tingly and I really like it.  My favorite part other than the actual results using the product is that it's PURPLE!!  Totally feminine color, and total irrelevant to the action or results, but I know when I tell my husband to go get some purple Listerine he's not going to come home with the wrong shade of blue or green.  It is an absolutely fabulous product and I would recommend everyone who wants to try something other than their regular mouth-burning-wash to try this out.  It's remarkable.  If you don't like mouthwash, like myself, because of the overpowering tingle that makes it feel like your mouth is on fire, I advise you go out and get a bottle of this, it will change your oral health routine.  I wish I had have been brave enough to try it before, maybe I wouldn't have any cavities.  Well, maybe not but who knows.  I know one thing for sure, I will use this mouthwash every day, two times a day, for the rest of my life (as long as they continue to make it and don't change the formula too much to make it turn out terrible).

I give this product 2 out of 2 thumbs up!

~~I purchased this product with my own money and am writing a review because I think you all deserve to know how fantastic I think it is~~
