It literally is a shock, since the first time I tried Closeup Fresh Attraction Arctic Shock, it tasted bitter. It’s not the usual type of bitter, it’s the type of bitter as if you were adding medicine to toothpaste.
And then when I was already brushing I didn’t even last a minute because I got too overwhelmed by the bitter component. And sadly, it leaves a sharp, strong menthol aftertaste (minus the menthol) 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 wasn’t able to have a snack.
So given the bitter taste in the mouth that lingers for 30 minutes, 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.
