I think that a person’s smile is one of the first things we notice.  It tells us how friendly they are, how they take care of their body, and shows a beautiful side of who they are.  That’s why it is so important for me and my family to take care of our smiles with good oral hygiene.  What does good oral hygiene include?  It includes brushing our teeth at least twice a day, flossing at least once, and using mouthwash.

I was excited to have the opportunity to head to our local Target and purchase Colgate Total Mouthwash.  I knew that Colgate was well known for their toothbrushes for adults and kids, as well as their toothpaste, but had no idea they also produced mouthwash.  I had to check this out and see how it worked in our family!  You can see more about my shopping experience by checking out my Google+ Story.

At our Target, Colgate Total Mouthwash was available in two flavors – Spearmint Surge and Peppermint Blast.  I love that there are different flavors to choose from, plus the Colgate Total Mouthwash provides 12 hours of protection against germs.  Sweet!  There are a few other benefits of Colgate Total Mouthwash that I like:

– Kills 99% of germs
– Significantly reduces plaque
– Helps prevent Gingivitis
– No burn of alcohol
– Freshens breath

Our kids found Colgate Total Mouthwash easy to use and it didn’t burn their mouthes.  Growing up with all the changes their bodies are going through can be tough, but that doesn’t mean they can’t have amazing smiles.  Thank you Colgate for making that possible!

For myself, I will definitely be using the Colgate Total Mouthwash as I will be a bridesmaid in my sister’s upcoming wedding in Maui, as well as attending different blogging events.  My smile is one of the first things that people notice about me and I want to make sure it’s as healthy and pretty as possible.


Let’s also not forget that it gives me healthy, kissable breath – very important!!!  Be sure to follow Colgate on Facebook and Twitter for new products and information!

What do you use to keep your smile healthy?  Have you tried Colgate Total Mouthwash?
