“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 school has started we can finally get back into our routine, and trust me having a routine helps. As a mom of one homeschooler and another child that attends school I live by the calendar. At this point you would think that my boys would have their daily routines covered, but I find that they still need reminders. One of the easiest ways to remind them about oral care is by leading through example. I’m a parent of two boys that have braces. Oral care is taken very seriously in this house. You would think that with all that metal in their mouth they would remember to clean and rinse, but that is not the case. I try to let them see me take my oral health seriously.
When LISTERINE sent me a box of product I wasn’t sure who was more excited, My husband or myself. He is serious about his teeth and gums. If you were to open his glove box right now you’d find a bottle of LISTERINE and LISTERINE Floss. ( This is before we had any product sent to us!) While I’m not a huge rinse and go when I’m in my car person I do NEED the floss. I have found that as I have gotten older more food seems to work its way in between my teeth. Flossing is my weak point. I hate it. My gums are sensitive and floss makes them feel worse. So, I was excited to try LISTERINE Gentle Gum Care. It’s made with a soft woven floss for sensitive gums.
When I opened the package I noticed that it looked like strings, I never knew that floss came in other forms besides waxy threads. I was intrigued and tried it immediately. Was it sensitive? Yes! Did it clean? Yes! I had a slight cinnamon taste in my mouth that was refreshing. Maybe flossing regularly won’t be so bad anymore, now that I know it can be gentle. Now I can finally be a healthy hero for my boys in the oral care department. They already learn from me daily the importance of a healthy diet and exercise. They also know that using LISTERINE Smart Rinse after brushing helps flush out any hidden food particles that brushing alone can miss. This is my must have item especially with the braces. The amount of food that gets rinsed out at times is unbelievable. When my boys see that the food is coming out it actually encourages them to brush better. This product was also recommend to me by our dentist. Have you caught the LISTERINE Healthy Habit Heroes video series on YouTube? It’s a fun video series that helps spread awareness for healthy living.
One product that I was personally curious to try was the LISTERINE POCKETPAKS. A tiny product that claims to kill 99% of bad breath germs in a small travel size discreet container. Did I say claims? I think it killed every singe bit of bacteria in my mouth! Powerful, minty, and fresh are all words that can be used to describe this product. The perfect size to keep in your purse or glove box. Just pop one tiny sheet in your mouth and you have fresh breath. Easy breezy what else can I say. Did I mention they contain no sugar or calories? Yes, it’s true. Find out where you can buy LISTERINE products near you by checking the store locator.
With LISTERINE POCKETPAKS I won’t ever get caught with bad breath again! Are you a healthy habit hero? How do you show your kids that healthy habit are party of our daily life?
