Whiter teeth, fresh breath and a more confident smile


Hi everyone! Well I did it! I took the Listerine 21-Day Challenge and I couldn’t be happier with the results. Not only have I gotten into the habit of swishing twice daily, but I also got into the habit of slowing down (and relishing) my entire “washing-up” process and really being thoughtful about how I am taking care of my mouth, my teeth, my gums my lips and yes… I even fell in love.

Here’s the scoop: as part of the challenge, I was to swish with Listerine for 21 days. Well, we all know that if you brush your teeth and swish with antiseptic mouthwash twice a day, you might as well floss at the same time too. Luckily, I had a handy package of Listerine Ultraclean Floss at my fingertips so it was a snap to quickly run the floss through my teeth morning and night. It’s amazing how good you can feel just by adding the extra steps of flossing and rinsing to your “brushing your teeth” routine.  And now here’s the romantic part, okay maybe not romantic but it has been a serendipitous happening nonetheless….

Did you know Listerine Makes a Whitening, Anti-Cavity Toothpaste?

They do and it’s AWESOME. To be perfectly honest, the toothpaste is an acquired taste. At first I wasn’t so sure I liked it, the toothpaste tastes a lot like the mouthwash but its a little stronger and not quite as smooth. But the funny thing was, the more I used it the more I liked it ~ especially when I used it in tandem with the Listerine Antiseptic Mouthwash and you know what…after a while I noticed my mouth felt great and my teeth got whiter! For real!! My teeth brightened a shade! I have to tell you I am a teeth whitening nut, but my problem is so many of the toothpastes and white strips I’ve used (and I’ve used them all) hurt my sensitive teeth (and gums). The Listerine toothpaste did not bother by teeth or my gums and I have seen a noticeable improvement. My smile looks better and I feel happier ~  what’s not to love.

photo-180JRB is happy with his Listerine products  too. Here’s a picture of him when we first received the Listerine Smart Rinse, which he uses each morning and night after he brushes his teeth. His favorite thing is the attached “cup thing” that’s at the top of the bottle. JRB  likes how you can squeeze just the right amount to the top so you know exactly how much rinse you should use. I love that it just adds one more layer of cavity fighting protection for  his teeth and gums…#CavityFree. JRB  and I also love the Listerine Pocketpacks, which we keep in the car for days when we need a little freshener. Our only request;  Can Listerine make pocket packs for Tucker our dog?
