Are you’re scared your breath stinks?

Bad breath is like, the worst thing in the world. There is nothing worse than someone talking at you with a mouth like a wet dog and every time you try to back away, the take a stop closer. HELP IT’S AWFUL. GET AWAY. YOUR BREATH IS BLEACHING MY HAIR.

I’m actually really paranoid that my breath smells. All the time. If someone comes near potential breath smelling range, I’ll jump away. It’s an reflex built inside of me. Not that anyone has every told me that my breath smells but I’m always paranoid android about it.

Cue The Breath Co, a brand that sells mouth stuff (what’s the professional word for this?) that prevents bad breath and dry mouth. It also to reduces mouth ulcers and controls plaque, tartar and cavities.

They sent me three of their products to try out and I’ve been using them for the past few weeks.

The Breath Co Fresh Breath Dry Mouth Lozenges The Breath Co Fresh Breath Dry Mouth Lozenges

The Breath Co Fresh Breath Dry Mouth Lozenges

These mouth lozenges are supposed to taste of mandarin, but to be honest all I taste is mint when I eat them. They work by helping your mouth produce more saliva. It sounds kind of gross, but saliva is important as it’s there to stop germs entering your body. So as well as helping your breath to stay fresh, in can also mean you’re more resistant to bugs.

The only thing I dislike about this is that the little packets are so hard to get into. They just don’t tear. Bring scissors.

Ingredients:

Sorbitol, Other Flavouring, Natural Xylitol (1%), Magnesium Stearate (from plant sources), Zinc Gluconate (0.2%, 3.4mg, 34% of RDA per serving), Spilanthes Acmella, Nautral Flavouring, Rebiana (steviol glycosides)

The Breath Co Fresh Breath Toothpaste The Breath Co Fresh Breath Toothpaste

The Breath Co Fresh Breath Toothpaste

Again, this product is designed to help bad breath as well as prevent mouth ulcers, combat plaque and tartar. There are no artificial flavours, colours or detergents and it has aloe vera in it to help prevent dry mouth. 

The hint is in the name, really. Mild mint. This really is a mild flavour so if you’re someone who loves toothpaste that has a strong minty effect, this might not be for you. Though it does leave your mouth feeling clean and fresh after!

Ingredients:

Aqua, Sorbitol, Glycerin, Hydrated Silica, Aroma, Xylitol, Tetrapotassium pyrophosphate, Tetrasodim Pyrophosphate, Cellulose, Sodium Benzoate, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, Sodium Sulfate, Sodium Fluoride, Parfum, Sodium Chlorite, Ammonium Glycyrrhizate, Ascorbic Acid, Citric Acid, Sodium sulfite, Potassium Sorbate

The Breath Co Fresh Breath Oral Rinse

The Breath Co Fresh Breath Oral Rinse

This vegan, gluten free mouth wash can prevent bad breath for up to 12 hours and claims to destroy morning breath. Again, it’s a mild flavour but is still refreshing. It doesn’t have that kick that Listerine seems to have – but I often find that too much and makes me feel like my mouth is burning!

Ingredients:

Aqua, PEG-40 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Sodium Chlorite, Tetrasodium EDTA, Sodium Benzoate, Sodium Bicarbonate, Mentha Piperita Oil, Sodium Hydroxide

Though I’m not sure about the lozenges, I love this toothpaste and mouthwash. I think the oral rinse has to be my favourite as when I swirl it around my mouth, it feels like it’s doing good work up on in there.

The packaging is also funky and I love how bright it looks on my sink.

Have you ever heard of this brand before? What are your thoughts?

    I’m so scared that my breath stinks (although I would have been told if it did?), sometimes I don’t talk unless I have to. It’s such a horrible feeling… Thanks for bringing these to my attention! I’m tempted to try the toothpaste, if it’s mild I’ll probably be happy with it (we have a v. minty toothpaste and I always feel like my eyes are watering from it!). I enjoyed reading this, so thank you!

    I guess most of us are scared of breath stinks, especially when you are around the people of the time. I also hate it when someone is speaking to my face and I can smell that horrible breath. I haven’t heard this brand before, I like the colourful packaging 🙂 x

    I hate bad breath, it really is the worst thing when you can notice it on someone. The lozenges sound like a great idea for on the go if they can make the packaging a little easier to get in!

    Im always paranoid my breath stinks, even though most the time its not. I had a side effect to some medication once and it made my breath awful, but ever since im constantly worried it stinks. Think I might have to get some of this to put my mind at rest, haha!

    The mints sound like they would be ideal to keep in my locker in work after I’ve had something seriously breathe-stinkingly delicious. What can I say, I love red onion and garlic, it goes in everything, though my colleagues probably don’t enjoy it half as much as I do haha!

    A lot of the time I’m certain I have bad breath – it seems to back up on me, even if I’ve refrained from eating onions, garlic, or dairy products. I think my bad breath often comes in part from some rotting teeth and a failure to visit the dentist.
    What with the local gestapo stopping people on the road to check for the smell of alcohol one hesitates to use alcohol based breath products around here right before driving. Those Breath Co. products might do the trick. It’s nice that you quoted the ingredients.

    I’m also paranoid about this, particularly as I get horrid tonsil stones from Bacterial in my tonsils which I just HATE!!!! It’s horrid to think that someone might be thinking, “Urgh!” as they talk to you!x
