Join me in the Listerine 21 Day Challenge! #Listerine

Disclosure: 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. The thoughts and opinions expressed in this post are my own.

I went to the dentist 2 days ago and while I really don’t like going, I love the way my teeth feel afterwards.  They are clean and smooth with no tartar buildup, which is a huge problem for me.  I make sure I go to the dentist every 6 months and try hard to take time to really care for my teeth but it is easy to get sloppy!  I’m in a hurry or tired and just plain don’t feel like flossing some days.  My dental hygienist always asks “You’re flossing every day, right?”  And I have to guiltily tell her no.  I want to set a good example for my kids so I need to get on the ball.  My son has braces and my daughter is just sloppy about her tooth brushing habits.  Guess the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree, there, huh?  When I was asked to participate in the Listerine 21 Day Challenge I knew it was a project the whole family should get involved in!  I headed out to Target to get stocked up on a few Listerine products.

Listerine 21 Day Challenge

On my trip to Target I picked up several Listerine products to try out over the next few weeks.  Here is what the challenge includes:

  • LISTERINE® Antiseptic (Love that the Ultraclean mouthwash says ‘Dentist Clean’ right on it!)
  • LISTERINE® SMART RINSE (Fluoride rinse is helpful in fighting cavities and the kids will like these!)
  • LISTERINE® WHITENING® Original Gel Fluoride Anticavity Toothpaste  (I got the original version to start since Target was out of this but will be getting some from the brand in the next few day)
  • REACH® Floss  (I got the ‘gentle on the gums’ version since I have crowded teeth and sometimes tender gums)


Most days I am lucky to find time to brush, much less floss and rinse so this is going to be a challenge for me.  And I hope to get the kids on board with the project, too.  Did you know that brushing misses 75% of your mouth?  No wonder I deal with tartar all the time!

Listerine’s Commitment to Community

For every person who posts a “Swish Selfie” to LISTERINE® Brand’s Facebook page, LISTERINE® Brand will make a $5.00 contribution to Oral Health America’s Smiles Across America® program, up to $85,000, toward their goal of connecting 210,000 children with needed oral health services in 2014.  Head over to the Listerine Facebook page and help them reach their goal!
