I have a rare autoimmune disease that causes my mouth and throat to be extremely sensitive. I used your toothpaste for many years until you changed your formula about 4 years ago. This revised formula irritated my mouth and throat and I could no longer use your toothpaste. I am happy to see that you have recently changed your "Gentle Mint" version back to the original formula. I can now use your brand again. It's wonderful. Thank you!

I have also noticed that some of the recent reviews of this new "Gentle Mint" formula are critical of various aspects of the toothpaste. These individuals might want try the "Fresh Mint Original" version of your toothpaste. The formula for this toothpaste has not changed in the last several years and may meet their needs.

I rarely post reviews but I have to chime in with the almost universal bad reviews here about the new formula. As one reviewer pointed out, the old formula was green, tasted great, was very mild, and left your mouth and teeth feeling fresh and clean. Over the past six months or so the new formula hit the shelves. TERRIBLE! Taste like baking soda and salt. Zero foam. Mouth didn't feel clean or fresh. Epic Fail. If the new formula works for a target customer base, then by all means, sell it, but sell the original formula as well as an alternate option. From the reviews here you will lose all of your customers who enjoyed and used the original formula. I for one will be returning the two tubes I just bought and looking for a different toothpaste, while keeping my eye open for the slim possibility that GSK will listen to their customers and again offer the original formula.

The new formula is not anywhere as good as the old one!

By 

from Los Angeles

Well, the old formular used to be great, no SLS, no drying ingredients, tasted great, cleaned my teeth, but the new formula is gross - it's chalky, doesn't taste good, and doesn't even clean my teeth properly. Time to find another brand I guess, sigh. Corporate greed strike again is my guess.

I would NOT recommend the new gentle mint formula becausa

By 

from Iowa

This new formula leaves a chalky taste in my mouth, dissolves almost immediately, and has a difficult taste. Please bring back the old formula. I actually prefer not to give it a star at all, it really does not help me at all!!!

Bring back the old formula.

By 

from Texas

This did not help me at all. I bought this and used it as usual but thought something was different. The consistency is different but the most important thing is that it did not help my dry mouth at all. On top of that I finally figured out that this new formula was leaving a bad taste in my mouth all day. No matter what I ate or drank the bad taste was always there. I thought maybe it was one of my meds but I had not started anything different. Finally figured out it was the toothpaste. I had to switch to something else. Please bring back the old formula. Don't like your other option.

This toothpaste is a life-saver!

By 

from Buffalo, NY

I am allergic to sodium laurel sulfate and have burning mouth syndrome or another as-yet-to-be diagnosed condition that causes significant mouth pain. I also have dry mouth from medications. This is the ONLY toothpaste with fluoride that I can tolerate. I love the flavor that some have described as chalky. It is indeed a gentle mint and has a fresh mint flavor without being overly sweet. The regular Biotene toothpaste is too strong for my irritated mouth. So in my view the gentle formula is PERFECT!!!! Thank you Biotene!

I would not recommend this to anyone.

By 

from Tampa, Fla.

Why did you have to change from the gel gentle mint to this new formulation? Not good for people with very dry mouth or burning mouth issues. I hate this new formula! Leaves my mouth chalky, gritty and very uncomfortable. Please bring back the gentle mint gel formula! You company obviously does not really care about giving people a product that works and helps their dry/sensitive mouth issues since you are not listening to the many reviews like mine! I have severe Sjogren's Disease!

Product formula change??

By 

from Harlingen

This helped me back in 2013 when I had severe chapped lips and was looking for SLS free toothpaste. Somewhere along the way it was not available for like 8 weeks, when it came back on the shelves, clearly product changed and now I find I'm getting the severe painfully chapped lips again, and realized ingredients must have changed. Dyes are potential irritants as well as sucralose so I'm searching for a new toothpaste now. Companies think we don't notice changes but this formula is gritty and doesn't clean as good, plus my lips burn when using it. Please go back to original formula. I'll be switching to another brand today.

Bring back the original formula

By 

from Alpharetta, GA

The new formula is awful. It's gritty and the taste is nasty. i thought i use to buy it in a gel toothpaste which works better in an electric toothbrush.
