Disclosure: 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.
As someone who had to teach myself good oral care growing up, I’ve always made it my mission to be instill the importance of person hygiene. It has been quite a crazy past few months. Since Ben has arrived some routines have come easier but bedtime is one of those times that seems harder to handle than others. I’m happy that my 9-year-old is able to take care of things on her own and my 4-year-old is getting better at it too and more independent so she really doesn’t even let me help her when I do find the time to try.
A few great plaque and cavity fighting products, along with regular dental checkups, are part of our healthy oral care routine. Good oral care can come a little easier when you have LISTERINE products like floss, rinses, and breath strips on hand.
I wasn’t planning on trying the LISTERINE Healthy White Rinse because I have sensitive teeth but my husband convinced me to and I’m glad he did. It’s a peroxide-free rinse that not only helps remove and prevent tough stains it also helps to restore enamel and safely whitens without irritation, prevents cavities & helps prevent tooth decay and eliminates bad breath germs. LISTERINE HEALTHY WHITE is great because of the added baking soda ingredient that helps to remove stains that you may get from things like coffee or tea.
For the kids, ours love the LISTERINE Smart Rinse. Every morning and night they look forward to using their Smart Rinse and I like it because it helps keep their mouth healthy and fresh. My girls love all things Barbie so they both got really excited about the Barbie themed anticavity fluoride rinse. It helps prevent cavities and removes extra particles that they might miss when brushing. Before school started Kendall had a dentist appointment and I was advised that she could start using mouthwash now so we’ve slowly been introducing it to her since August. Since they’re not always super thorough, this is a great step for anyone to take after brushing.
Even those when perfect oral hygiene may worry about when their breath when their out and about. The LISTERINE POCKETPAKS are so nice to keep in your purse. Not only are they a quick way to freshen your breath but one tiny strip kills 99% of those nasty bad breath germs. They are small enough to fit in your purse and perfect for a quick mouth refresher on the go or after a meal.
A cool product that I have fully fallen in love with is the LISTERINE ULTRACLEAN® ACCESS® Flosser. It has a long ergonomic handle and a non-slip grip to help reach the back teeth and the floss is a high-intensity yarn that doesn’t break easily. K’s dentist also recommend that she begin to use floss. Up until now we didn’t know when kids were suppose to start. Turns out it’s almost as soon as possible as long as the floss is used correctly. The soft floss in the Gentle Gum Care line is just right for sensitive gums and for little ones.
All of these products can be found at retailers nationwide and even online. You can check here for a list of stores to find LISTERINE products. Also, if you want a few laughs check out the LISTERINE Healthy Habits Heroes YouTube page. My girls love this week’s “The Negotiators” video.
