Our Final Review of Walgreens Instant Mouth Sore Relief
There are a few things we like about Walgreens Instant Mouth Sore Relief. The product comes with clear instructions on how to apply it and the manufacturer offers a 30-day money-back guarantee.
There are however a few concerns that we have about the product. It does not contain ingredients which help reduce the duration and severity of the canker sore and it does not act as a long-term prevention to the problem. If this product only relieves the pain, then it does not have a multi action formula and may indicate that it is ineffective. Once applied, the product forms a coating on the affected area. This could be inconvenient if you have to be at work or talking to people. Another concern we have is that the manufacturer does not offer a discount for the product. Due to these reasons, we are unsure if this product will be effective and that is why we are unable to recommend Walgreens Instant Mouth Sore Relief.
