I could call it a “shock”, since the first time I tried Closeup Fresh Attraction Arctic Shock, it tasted like medicine, so my mouth had to adjust to its flavor. Plus, it has an aroma which isn’t even fit for a toothpaste. I could say it smells like artificial citrus.
When I was already brushing, I didn’t last a whole minute because I got too overwhelmed by the bitter component.
Plus, it leaves a sharp, strong aftertaste in the mouth that lasts for like 15 minutes, then for the next 15 minutes, the bitter component joins. I was about to have a snack but given the fact that the bitter aftertaste was too strong, I lost my appetite.
So given the bitter taste in the mouth that lingers for 30 minutes (unless you are already used to it), it is not a good idea to use Closeup Fresh Attraction Arctic Shock, since it tastes sharp on the mouth. The type of sharp as if your mouth were being numbed.
