This is a great mouthwash. I headed to the store because I noticed some sensitivity to my teeth and thought about getting a good mouthwash. After checking out all the brands, this one said it did all the things I was looking for, plus the bonus of whitening. I noticed the asterisk of after 12 weeks, so I didn't really buy it thinking I'd get glamorous pearly whites, but hey, if I'm going to be cleaning my mouth why not whiten even if it's only a little bit. If it didn't work, at least hopefully it was doing the rest. You do have to wait 30 min after using to eat/drink and the longer you wait the better, which isn't bad because by the time I get ready and get to work an hour has gone by. My tooth sensitivity went away and I noticed whiter teeth. It also protected my teeth from stains from the coffee I was drinking. I ran out of it once and noticed that after two weeks of not using it my teeth didn't feel as clean, felt more sensitive, and my mouth overall didn't seem as fresh. Yes it burns like heck, have you ever heard of Listerine?? Even their commercials show people cringing while using it.

The foaming action was a little different and the taste isn't the best but I've washed with peroxide before so I knew what to expect. However, just like if you've used peroxide on a cut, the more bacteria that is in there, the more it's going to foam. So if you are completely put off by over-foaming, then that might be where your problem is starting. The added foam gives you the benefit of coating your teeth for whitening, but also your gum line, etc, for longer bacteria control. I also think the watery/foamy consistency helps vs. just liquid to get the gunk out of your throat when you gargle. Trust me...when you spit it out (and you may have to a couple times...although when you do you're spitting out the peroxide that's helping to whiten your teeth..)...you'll see the gunk I'm talking about that causes bad breath...and it's gross. But at least it's not in your mouth anymore :)

Serious plaque, tartar and bleeding gums made me finally schedule a dental appointment and also asked for recommendation for toothpaste and mouthwash. This was recommended. Didn't read 'Directions' - it's a 'mouthwash' what's to read? However, it burned so badly my eyes were both watering and my lower-lip became red and nearly twice the normal size after using a cap-full. It's got Hydrogen Peroxide and Alcohol in it which foams up A LOT and is dangerous if swallowed. READ THE DIRECTIONS and especially the amount to be used. I am dipping an electric toothbrush in a cap-full of this and applying it directly to the worst areas on the back-teeth and gum-line. It does actually help and have seen an improvement in a short period of time. Also I have found it results in having lots of skin-like substance almost like a mouth full of wet string-cheese within hours of use. I assume this is the bacteria, germs, and gross stuff that needs to be removed. It does get less and less over time. This is really more of a treatment not a mouthwash breath-freshener. I use a non-alcohol mouthwash for breath and sugar-free gum in-between. I think only your Dentist should recommend a product like this as treatment and therefore, I would not recommend it to a friend.

      The most horrible taste I've ever had in my mouth and it burned my tongue. Went out and bought some Crest Total Care as I cannot use this. I can't even get a friend to take it free.

            I use listerine twice a day. I bought this type to try it. After I split the mouth wash out, my teeth and mouth were coated in a foam which I could only describe as being akin to rabies. I thought I was poisoned. I rinsed this out with water. I cannot imagine this is how it is supposed to work since you shouldn't eat or drink after using mouth wash. don't buy this product.

            Don't buy this product (Listerine Total Care Plus Whitening) unless you don't mind a horrible taste and burning sensation! There are others that should be as effective and taste fine!
            Try Literine Whitening Plus Restoring Floride Rinse. I used it until I ran out and after a short time had no plaque and whiter teeth without the horrible taste of this similar product by the same company. I will go back to my first product and pour the new one down the drain!

              I was hesitant to order this product after reading so many unhappy reviews. But I went for it.

              CLEARLY there are some people with highly sensitive mouths, teeth and gums, and who feel intense burning pain. To me, however, it was not a problem at all. It stings a little, but nothing unbearable to me. It foams! Quite a bit, but not so much one looks like a rabid dog...

              I guess it isn't for those who are very sensitive, but it felt quite normal to me. And it works.
