Conclusion of Our Walgreen’s Mouth Sore Relief Review
There are a couple of positive things about Walgreen’s Mouth sore relief. It is an affordable product which won’t cause you to lose that much money if you find that it is ineffective. Some customers felt that this product was able to give them quick relief. One customer said that it really helped with the irritation that braces caused the inside of them while also not having such a terrible taste. There were a couple of things we didn’t like though. The return policy doesn’t allow you to try the product and then return it, which doesn’t give us much confidence in this product’s effectiveness. We also read a few customer reviews saying that this product only worked when they first applied it but the effects soon wore off. We feel you will be able to find a better product out there that will be more likely to get the job done.
