Long Lasting Fresh Breath With Swish

There is no better way to start your day than by eating a hearty breakfast. This will definitely give you all the energy you need and keep your mind alert so as to get things done all throughout the day. To face people confidently though, you need to have pleasant smelling fresh breath. No other mouthwash can provide this than Swish. I never returned to my old brand when I started using it. Swish is not just effective but it is also cheaper than other brands so I am able to save some money (suggested retail price - 35 ml. P35, 60 ml. P46.75, 120 ml. P75, 250 ml P137.50). Plus, it is available almost everywhere, at supermarkets, drugstores and convenience stores nationwide.

A quality product of United Laboratories Inc., Swish products consist of mouthwash and breath spray which is so handy that you can take it with you anytime, anywhere. You will have instant fresh breath in just 10 seconds. Thanks to its SureFresh Technology, Swish does not only give you long lasting fresh breath but it also kills bad breath causing bacteria, removes plaque and tartar, and prevents gingivitis and other gum problems. Since it is alcohol-free, I never experience any painful burning sensation when I gargle. All you need is to gargle 20 ml. of Swish twice a day for 30 seconds and you will get that fresh breath that lasts all day.     

Among all the flavors of Swish mouthwash namely Icy Choco Mint (green), Mangosteen Mint (pink), and  Cinnamon Blast (red), my favorite is the Mangosteen Mint. This mix of mangosteen and mint never fails to give my mouth that revitalizing minty flavor that stays and becomes more pronounced as time goes by.
