**This is a compensated opportunity in partnership with The Motherhood and Listerine®. All opinions and results are my own.**
Let’s face it. Dental care is important. Super important. Not only for looking our best but for feeling our best as well. No one wants to have bad breath or yellow teeth and none of us wants to spend hours in a dental chair taking care of issues we could have prevented at home! When I found out that Listerine was partnering with Oral Health America and giving $5 PER ‘Swish Selfie’ posted on their Facebook page to them, I was all over being a part of the Listerine® 21-Day Challenge!
Yes, yes, there is a lot to cover. Including a $500 weekly winner in the Swish Selfie contest! But let’s start smaller, at home.
I just took my girls to the dentist for their bi-annual check up. They did amazing and came out with clean reports. But there was a suggestion that I help them brush at night just to keep them on track. He told me that as my kids continue to lose their baby teeth and get their adult teeth, it is imperative that their oral health be monitored. Luckily, I have already been having them use Listerine® Smart Rinse and they love it. The awesome bottle design that lets kids bubble up their mouthwash adds to the fun of the daily routine!
As for me, well….. I need help. I admit that sometimes I work so late that I go to bed without brushing. I know I need a check up and am currently awaiting my dental insurance start date. I know I have some old fillings that have fallen out so I am a little worried about my next visit. Until then, though, I need to get my dental health on track! Since brushing misses 75% of your mouth – YES, 75%, I knew I needed a total care routine to make sure I have the cleanest, healthiest mouth I can!
This is where the Listerine® 21-Day Challenge comes in. For 3 weeks, I will be using quality products like Listerine® Antiseptic (I got the UltrClean one), Listerine® Whitening® Original Gel Fluoride Anti-cavity Toothpaste and Reach Floss. For my kids, I got more of the Listerine® Smart Rinse. They love it and anything that encourages them to take their of their teeth is fantastic! I picked up all of these products at my neighborhood Target! In fact, the Listerine® Antiseptic even had a $5 Target gift card rebate if you bought 3!
I will be faithfully brushing, flossing, rinsing and having my kids do the same. All to support Listerine® and Oral Health Care. Plus, I love that if I post my own Swish Selfie, a $5 donation will be made to kids in need AND I will be entered to WIN $500! I can enter every week too! The sweepstakes ends April 27, 2014 so get started swishing and posting!
