I received a Target gift card to purchase LISTERINE® Brand products from Johnson & Johnson Healthcare Products Division of McNEIL-PPC, Inc. and The Motherhood as part of my participation in the LISTERINE® 21-Day Challenge. All thoughts and opinions expressed in this post are my own.
A few extra minutes in my oral care routine for 21 days to a brighter, whiter smile? That’s the LISTERINE® 21-Day Challenge that I’m kicking off today!
After enduring the pain of braces for almost 3 years in high school, I can honestly say that I worked hard for my teeth. And believe me, I can still remember the horrible agony with every adjustment the orthodontist made. As such, I try my best to take care of them now with good oral hygiene.
It can always be better, though. That’s why I’m excited to help my family kick it up a notch with the LISTERINE® 21-Day Challenge! To get started, I headed to Target to pick up the items needed for both myself and my kids, because they’re getting involved, too. Avenger’s-style Smart Rinse, unite!
Now, I make sure to brush at least twice a day, but did you know that brushing misses 75% of your mouth? My kids, however, I’m lucky if I can get them to brush once in the morning. I should note that I originally picked up original LISTERINE® toothpaste, but I’ll actually be using LISTERINE® WHITENING® Anticavity toothpaste.
While this will be my kids’ first experience with a rinse, I like to use mouthwash a few times a week, or whenever I feel as needed. Flossing, though, is another story. One that I tend to forget. Sorry, gums! I’ll do my best to remember you moving forward, ok? So as you can see, we definitely have some improvements that we can make.
Take the challenge with us and we can swish together! For every person who posts a â€œSwish Selfieâ€ to LISTERINE® Brand’s Facebook page, LISTERINE® Brand will make a $5.00 contribution to Oral Health America’s Smiles Across America® program, up to $85,000, toward their goal of connecting 210,000 children with needed oral health services in 2014.
Check back in 21 days when I’ll share how the challenge went for us, along with our own Swish Selfies along the way!
