Today I have another cruelty-free product review to share! Today’s post is going to focus on the PowerSmile Mouthwash from JASON. I’ve been using it for the past while and I thought I’d share my opinion on it with you!

For a brilliantly white smile and fresh breath, use JASON PowerSmile Toothpaste and Mouthwash twice a day. Kosher Certified.”

Availability: The JASON PowerSmile Mouthwash can be found on well.ca. It may also be found at various grocery stores across Canada, but I’m not 100% sure.
Pros: Cruelty-free; alcohol-free; saccharin-free; gluten-free
Cons: Unless diluted, the aftertaste is a bit strong.
My Thoughts: I really like this mouthwash! At first I wasn’t too sure because I was unaware that it’s concentrated; so the first time I used it, it left a pretty strong aftertaste in my mouth. Since then I’ve been diluting it with water 2:1 and it’s much better! I love that this mouthwash is not as strong as some other mouthwashes (both cruelty-free and not cruelty-free). I find it helps my mouth feel extra clean and it also helps keep my breathe smelling fresh! I use it twice a day, as recommended; however, I don’t use the PowerSmile toothpaste because I like to use toothpaste with fluoride in it. I still feel that this mouthwash works very well, though! The only downside is that it’s a little pricy, but so are other cruelty-free mouthwashes …and non cruelty-free mouthwashes as well. Overall, I really like this mouthwash! It’s the best one I’ve used and I think I’m going to continue to use it!
