I've tried other Tom's of Maine mouthwashes and have liked them because they've never been very strong. This one, on the other hand, reminded of what it was like to use Listerine. You can definitely feel the spearmint in there and it burns a little. It does leave my mouth feeling clean though so I just deal with it. I wouldn't recommend it to someone who is looking for something mellow that will freshen their breath. This mouthwash has a kick to it that will help you wake up in the morning.
