I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for LISTERINE. I received samples for this review and a promotional item to thank me for participating.
Now that the kids have fully transitioned back to school, I feel like we are finally getting back into a schedule. As opposed to summer, I know exactly what time they will wake up. Our morning from them on is very routine as well. Clothes on, breakfast fed, teeth and hair brushed, backpacks on and out the door they go. Our nights are usually about as planned out.
Except for one thing. I still haven’t figured out quite where flossing fits into the equation.
After suffering through braces for most of my high school years, I’m good with most areas of oral care. I don’t want all that pain to be for nothing. Also, I want to be a good influence for my kids. If they see the care I take for my own teeth, I’m hoping they will follow with their own Heroic Habits. As such, I brush at least twice a day, usually more. Mouthwash, too, in between. I’m getting better about making sure my kids follow their oral hygiene with the same detail. Yet, for the life of me, I always forget about flossing until I have a piece of something stuck in my teeth.
Thus, when LISTERINE asked if I wanted to improve an area of my oral care regimen, I said yes, please! Bring on the floss!
And they did. I’ve never been so excited to receive floss before in my life, but I now have 4 different kinds of LISTERINE floss to choose from. Those include Cool Mint, Ultra Clean Mint, Healthy White Mint, and Gentle Gum Care Floss. Their Ultra Clean and Healthy White floss varieties contain Micro-Groove technology, which removes 2x more plaque than other leading floss brands.
We were also sent an Ultra Clean Access Flosser which easily gets to 100% of those hard-to-reach places as well as LISTERINE Healthy White Anticavity Mouthrinse, which I’m also very excited about as I love and have always preferred LISTERINE mouthwash. As the only leading whitening product on the market that does not include peroxide but includes the added benefit of flouride to help restore enamel, this mouthrinse truly freshens like no other! My daughter was also happy to see Barbie on the kids’ bottle of LISTERINE Smart Rinse.
If our teeth aren’t clean and we’re not flossing regularly after this, then I need an intervention. Or something. Stay tuned, as I’ll report how my progress is going next month!
