Once upon a time there were three bottles of mouth wash, Brand X, Brand Why, and #Listerine. Golditeeth stopped in the bathroom and brushed her teeth with Listerine Whitening toothpaste. She used her Listerine Ultraclean dental floss to clean between her teeth, and when she got ready to use mouthwash, she noticed her mom bought three different bottles. The first bottle was Brand X. Oh, this mouthwash is too horrible tasting. She went to the second bottle. This mouthwash is just perfumed water. Then she saw the bottle of Listerine. She said, "This #Listerine Cool Mint Antiseptic mouthwash is just right! My mouth feels clean, my breath is fresh, and it killed so many germs! It even has essential oils in it!" So, Golditeeth told all her friends that they should get #Listerine and try the 21 Day Challenge... But that is not the end of the story. Golditeeth uses all the Listerine products now. She learned that brushing only kills 25% of germs in her mouth. But when she uses all the products, her mouth is clean and healthier!
Cavities are bad! They not only go unnoticed until you need a root canal, they can cause heart problems as well. Nearly everyone has at least one cavity in their lifetime. When you brush, you only get 25% of the germs in your mouth. There has to be something that can be done to protect you better. That is where Listerine comes in!
Good oral care is important to your health and to your children's health. Listerine created a great mouthwash for children too. It is alcohol free and tastes like bubble gum. I got the Frozen bottle. It has pictures from the Disney movie Frozen to attract kids. Smart! With the fun characters, no alcohol, and bubble blast flavor, kids are sure to like it and they will remember to rinse.
I took a jaunt down to my local Walgreens, as it is just down the street from my house. I was super excited to find out that they had all the products I would need for the#Listerine 21 Day Challenge. Check out your Walgreens or click here to see the variety Listerine offers.
I am not typically a mouthwash user, so this really was a challenge for me. At first I have to admit it was a bit of a shock when I tried the Listerine. I was reminded of the "You can do it" commercial they use to have on television. I had to look at the clock to get the full 30 seconds of rinsing in. By the end of the challenge it was second nature,and I automatically reached for the Listerine bottle when I was done brushing and flossing. I especially like the fact that the mouthwash has essential oils in it. Essential oils are making their way into social media, and everyone is learning the important qualities they possess. It is nice that Listerine is using that knowledge in their products.
I really like the Listerine Ultraclean tool. It is great for flossing the back teeth too. I have a hard time flossing with regular dental floss. My mouth is tiny and my hands are big. With the Ultraclean tool, I didn't have to stick my hands into my mouth to floss and the floss is easy to change afterwards.
When I was out and didn't have a brush with me, I could pop a coolmint tab from the pocketpaks into my mouth and get fresh breath even away from home!
Every day I got an email asking me if I remembered to rinse. It is hard to forget when I get emails reminding me. Not only that, they had a chance every day to win a great prize such as a Fitbit and gift cards to places like Amazon. The Listerine 21 Day Challenge made it virtually impossible to fail! I liked that they included tips on how to get organized as well. There were three professionals offering free tips with each email. It was like getting a free class on top of healthy teeth!
I take a lot of medicine for asthma. The medicine causes me to get sores on my tongue. I noticed that the sores (although they still showed up) healed quicker with Listerine. I was able to clean out the sores with the mouthwash, something that regular brushing alone couldn't do. Another thing I noticed is that before Listerine I had a black mark between my bottom canine tooth and my front tooth. It had been there for as long as I can remember. I don't know when it happened, but the Listerine lifted that stain. That was exciting to me!
The #Listerine 21 Day Challenge was a definite success from my view point. I'd love to hear how you did on your challenge. If you haven't done the challenge, start your own. Beginning March 1, Walgreens is offering Listerine Mouthwash for just $4.49 for the entire week. Come back and let me know how your challenge goes.
Don't forget to come to the twitter party on March 3.
