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.
Remember three weeks when I posted about the 21 day Listerine challenge my son and I was taking? Well, it’s been 21 days. And what a difference 3 weeks makes. Here’s our 21 Day Listerine Challenge Results…
It wasn’t like my son and I had horrible oral hygiene habits, we did brush our teeth at least twice a day and use a mouthwash or rinse at least once most days, but we seriously were slacking in the flossing department.
Twenty-one days ago we started using our Listerine toothpaste, but we started using Listerine mouthwash (my son used the rinse) every single morning and every single evening/night. And made a habit of flossing every night before going to bed.
We started flossing in the mornings, but realized for us, it was easier for us to do it at night.
I love how much better my gums and teeth feel and look. I was experiencing gum tenderness, but it has gone away. My son’s teeth look much better and both of us feel better knowing we have fresh breath.
I admit, I find Listerine to be a bit strong, and at first I couldn’t swish very long, because my gums burned when I did. But the more I swished, the less my gums burned.
My son loves the Listerine Smart Rinse. Confession: I tried it… I and I like it, too!
My favorite thing about the challenge is that I’m back to flossing. It takes doing something 21 days to develop a habit or make a lifestyle change; I’m happy to say we’ve made a positive lifestyle change for better oral health.
I can’t wait until my 6 month checkup to see what my dentist has to say about my teeth and gums.
